    The nuts could be seized on the flange as is with all cars tbh, if you don't have one already get a blowtorch to heat them up if they are seized, your brave doing that job on your back I would find somewhere to fit it for me for a good price, it's not worth the hassle imho.

    Too be fair I have issues when it comes to lying underneath cars if you don't then knock yourself out, not literally of course :icon_thumright:.

    I'll happily get under a car!

    I replaced a diff in my BMW a couple months ago in the dark, snow and it was -6! On my own too might i add lol
