    if your getting rid hit it harder from behind (it may break) but your upgreading so no worries, my old car was the same i ended up with a 3lb lumb hammer swinging at it like a mad man....mix this with a little wd40 and youl get there

    As above really, but just to note - use eye protection please!!! They can splinter and shatter everywhere, you don't want that in your eye...

    And on some Saab 95's of late, we have had to cut the disk across the hub face with an angle grinder to break the rusty seal then chisel off the remaining...
