Wheel removal
« on: February 24, 2020, 03:55:41 PM »
Hi all. Picked up a big puncture at weekend. Good RAC man needed 4 plugs and half a tube of gunk to seal it. Got me home ok. Now question how easy is rear wheel removal on 16 plate xrx. I can do basics but have not removed wheel before. Other than photoing everything any obvious pitfalls .
Thanks

Hi Hen
Check out Muddy Sumps video(s); everything is easy to follow and straightforward.
Cheers
Geoff

Thanks Steve
When there is no light at the end of the tunnel, and all hope appears to be lost, do you throw in the towel and admit defeat......, NO...., watch a Muddy Sump video and all is well in the world.

 :084: ... are you sure Geoff  :187: ... I personally found it to be 'when I saw light at the end of the tunnel it was just some b*stard with a torch bringing me more work.  :005: :492:

When you removed the ABS sensor did you notice and take care of the shim under the sensor and replace it correctly or you will have upset the clearance to the sensor wheel. Common mistake is to fit the shim under the head of the fixing screw thinking it is a washer.

Hi Stevie
Ahh, I suppose its a bit late to notice that the 800 in the video does not have ABS!!!!! Like everything in life , Its always easy when you know what you are doing ---, I will have to have a look at the sensor and see how bad it is rubbing- The wheel does turn  , so may all is not lost  :003:

So .I do have a gap between wheel and sensor.I think I may invest in some feeler gauges.and recheck wheel alignment. I may have to invest in some new torque wrenches as well...who said home maintenance was cheep 😮

How was your rim after all the dealing gunk, I've heard lots of reports that garages don't like dealing with sealed in wheels, but never heard how it was overcome?!
