    Can't get hub off of driveshaft?

    Hi guys, I'm hard at it again today, and stuck again! I'm replacing the driveshaft on the driver side but I cant see how to get it out of the hub? I have undone the centre nut and tried giving it a bit of a whack, but I'm a bit worried about damaging something.

    The hub is currently not attached to anything else but the driveshaft now. Need to get this sorted tonight to stay on track for finishing the car this weekend, so any advice is very much appreciated!

    Spray with WD and leave for an hour, it will be just stuck on the splines, a good sharp blow in the centre with a pointed chisel should get it moving...

    Will that still work with the hub no longer attached to the suspension?

    Sorted, it's off. I've been googling torque specs for the 6 driveshaft to transmission bolts and most results say 40Nm, but that doesn't seem very tight!
