    Anyone done it theirselves? Thinkin of having a bash but front assembly looks a tad complicated and don't want to **** anything up. Any help would be appreciated or a how to even better 😎 Cheers, Shivvo

    Yeah i done mine with my grandad and hes was a mechanic all his life and said hes never seen anything like it! Took an 2 hours to work out how to do it then it took half hour or so to do the other one but the was alot of unbolting parts dropped the hub and was having to put a bit of stress on drive train! My advice if you dont have a mechanic on hand to help or all the different tools take it to a garage far more easy and less stressful!

    did a mates last year , i had a 2 poster to use which made it much easier but the hubs are heavy so care needs to be taken , the coupling for the electronics is a bit different too , its a twist lock arrangement , so dont be ruff with it ! to sum up , thorough recce and you'll do it easy enough as a DIYer
