spacer removal?

Any tips on removing the spacers? It's really on there and it won't budge.

Did you happen to use any anti-seize?

Working the spacer off evenly with a pry tool should get it off, just take your tine so the spacer and/or hub is not damaged.

Just give it a good whack with a rubber mallet. Should fall right off. I had to do the same with my Audi when the wheels would seize to the hubs. I got it down to a science where one strategically placed whack would dislodge the wheel. Then once you get it off, apply anti-seize for next time

Using this method,it's very easy.

Get a torch,they run about $20 and a long flat (very thin) chisel from ACE,HOME DEPOT etc.

First heat the spacer for about 45 seconds with the torch making it hot then use the chisel to pry the spacer from the hub at the 12 o'clock position then 3 0'clock position and so on... down around

Each side took me less than 10 minutes.
