[Steering & Suspension] Hub/front bearing removal
#1
Ive got an '06 ex forestry commission Berlingo van. Its a 2 litre diesel HDi version with side loading doors (last bit probably irrelevant).
The front wheel bearings are shot probably due to driving through flooded roads last winter. Ive got new bearings and Ive started to take the front wheel/hub assembly apart. Got the caliper, disc and ABS sensor off no bother. Ive come unstuck with the bottom wishbone joint. Can anyone advise if this is a tapered ball joint or otherwise. Ive seen some pics on google images of detatched wishbones for the Berlingo and the joint looks straight and not tapered. Theres no nut to take off like on a track rod so does it come apart with a splitter as normal or is a different method applicable? Also the bottom of the suspension joins the top of the hub and Im not sure how it will seperate (not there yet). Im assuming it will be under tension from the suspension spring?
Any help welcome.
