To replace the hub does the whole front end need to be on axle stands or just the side being worked on?

Just changed one of mine. Collected a Timpkins one from Paul at AF on my way home from work. The strange thing was after undoing the 4 bolts I pushed the drive shaft out by hand and just pulled the hub off. Nothing was even remotely seized in. Very Happy an easier than expected job made even easier by an excellent guide. Cheers to the writer Thumbs Up

Sounds like an enthusiast changed it out previously.
Either that or someone who accidentally got coppaslip on their hands.

Another tip for anyone going near a hubnut to loosen or refit. To loosen you can get the centre cap out and the socket will fit through to break it off while the wheels are still on the ground and same rules apply for torque tightening after refitting. You can even still get in to tap edge of nut top into key way on the drive shaft.
