Never used anything special to remove mine many a time. A electric or air powered impact gun spins the nut off with no problem. Removed mine every 5k miles to clean it out. So with putting 46k+ miles on it that would be many a time.Guys,Looking for a tool to remove the variator.Hopefully someone made one
Just hit it again. Depending upon what kind of torque wrench you are using you don't want to sit there keep hitting it. I set my air impact to setting 2 which works just fine. For those not use to using air impacts I would recommend a electric from Harbor Freight. For low torques like what is needed they will work fine.Desert Rat. How do you torque it back on then? Or do ou just hit it with the impact again?
