Still working on my Dad's Volvo. Thought I got all the hard stuff out of the way (coolant leak, P/S leak, sunroof rattle...), and was going to "knock out" this wheel bearing thing Thursday night. Well it's Friday and still no luck.
Got everything off around the bearing, and the 4 bolts out the back, so it should just come off right? No ... not after plenty of whacks with one of the largest dead blow hammers I could find. This "persuader" has worked in plenty of other situations for me but not this time. Bearing has soaked in PB blaster (which has been applied repeatedly) for 24 hours. Still nothing.
Any ideas of what next? Thankfully I have another car to use in the meantime.
1) Get a sledge / bigger hammers
2) Rig up something to thread through the wheel bolt holes (on the hub face) to get leverage and whack on that too
Not sure what to do next...
