Re: Help! Replacing EA water pump
What I did was buy a $10 50cm long screwdriver from Supercheap and used that to hold hub. Now the benefit of using a cheap driver is that not only wont you care if you break it, its actually less likely to snap. Since its made of lesser quality metal and will just bend and not shatter like a higher quality one.
Also with the screwdriver wedged and the spanner in place, give the spanner a good couple of wacks with a hammer, it should loosen the locktite which is holding the nut.
Ive successfully remove the fan from two different Falcons with no trouble at all.
Most difficult part of the job is actually trying to get the fan back on....
