Sorry Garygaryw0cki said:Yep, Norman I figured you would have an answer. It is a 27mm nut and that what I suspected had to be moved in, to the left as you face the wheel, to allow clearance to remove the hub and wheel. I plugged it, the tire, and can now take it to a shop.
garyw0cki said:Norman, As I face the wheel from the rear I can see a 27mm nut which I presume holds the axel. If I remove that nut, do I have to move the corresponding bolt out of the way to allow clearence to remove the wheel.
? The clearence is such that only only a 1/2 " clearence is neede to remove the wheel.
I carry a mini 12v electric air pump with me just in case I have a flat.garyw0cki said:Ted, Thanks for the details. I almost did exactly that but figured there had to be an easier way.I guess that's the way I'll do it now. I also carry a plugger and will now add some type of inflating device. Not the best design! :roll:
Well it is good to hear that you do not have to remove the axle nut. The breaker bar I used would not fit in my trunk easily!!ted clement said:Just took a look at the service manual for "03 and '04 and it says: remove muffler, remove muffler bracket, remove 3 nuts on wheel, remove wheel.
Apparently the big nut does not have to be removed.
Wouldn't this be fun out in the boonies with a flat? I've never had a flat but I carry a plugger and compressed air gadget.
hope this does not happenexhaust bolts at the cylinder head rust and seize
Is that due to atmospherics or because there is nothing old enough :?: :lol:garyw0cki said:Hi, not worried about the rust as it is new and in Las Vegas, nothing rusts. Now that I see what needs to be done, seems that it won't be much of a problem. :lol:
Actually Gary - you got it all wrong, thats just an average and it all tends to get dumped on us at the weekend or when we have organised an outdoor event. :roll: :x :wink:garyw0cki said:Yes, that's why they do it, annual rainfall, maybe 4/6 inches. You get that each day :lol:
