i was terrified about gouging the wire! i used a screwdriver to pop off the plastic housing near the wire. i unscrewed the wire side cover, then banged a chisel end into the gap all the way around to break the seal.
then i used the claw side of two hammers to work it off a bit, but not over the wires. i then saw that the halls were on the opposite side, so removed that cover, chiseled the cover loose, wedged it off a touch, then held the wheel firmly and smashed the axle (with a nut on the end) onto a block on the floor to free the wheel...
mostly brute force. no idea if this is the recommend approach, but how i do the 9Cs..
in other news, we had a bit of snow last night, mostly gone by morning, but i took a drive and was appalled at the amount of salt they put out. what is wrong with these people?
