Hubs and springs...

Eager to do something with the front axle (the rear stuff was waiting for me to get a puller) i decided to do some destruction work on the front springs. These things, while in the subframe, are under tension and need to be cut through before disassembling the rest. As I dont have a fancy torch to do this, the grinding disc was the tool of choice. I briefly tried sawing through the spring, no go!


After going through one, the tension is still not off, but it managed to damage the grinding disc allright.

The local garage, Autobedrijf Bartelen, was kind enough to lend me a puller for the stubborn rear hub:
