2002 95 ARC, front wheel hub replacement...I usually sing praises of EEuro's helpful video's...but the 6:47 minute one they did for this job had to have cut out out 3 hours and 3 coworkers hands! Anyway, after a half day's failure using E-E's steps of removing the ball joint from the control arm I went back to WIS' procedure of leaving it attached to the control arm and dropping from the knuckle. I got the one side in with a few choice words, but I'm having a devil of a time getting the other one to move close enuf to align it enuf to jack up the struck to seat it. I can't seem to swing in the knuckle enuf to align insertion start!?!? The axles are well inserted but I can't seem to get add'l play enuf to get the stud started..see pic.. any tips from this August group of SAABonauts would be GRATEFULLY accepted! ps I used the caliper bolt hole to attach that bar to try and give me leverage to pull in the assembly but so far no luck .. I used SAAB Speacal Tool BC45897 to lessen the upward tension on the control arm, the weights helped the digging bar I used....
