Re: [DMCForum] Stuborn wheels

Use a piece of wood to soften the blow and hit the edge of the wheel
hard with a heavy hammer. It's galvanic corrosion that has glued the
wheel to the hub. When you replace it, put copper slip all around that
area. As for the track rod end, put the jack under the joint and put
some upward force on it - not too much or you'll break the steering knuckle.
