front hub was easy damit,this is me we talking about!!!

now theres a phatom bolt that needs fixing and the only way to get to it is buy removing the front axle! its buy/behind the front wheel hub assembly and its in a bloddy tight spot hence why axle has to come off!
the bolt in question needs replacing and they say its best to do all four at the same time,there one in each corner so back axle needs to come off two!!!!
