I have searched through Stack Exchange and found another question about a stuck freehub, but I am confused about which direction to turn the 12mm hex wrench to loosen the freehub. It is an 8-speed SRAM freehub on a 2016 kid's bike (Islabikes Beinn 24).
There is a sleeve in the freehub that prevents access to the 12mm flats from the drive side. I cannot tell if the sleeve is removable. I have a long enough 12mm hex key to used from the non-drive side, and I have placed the box end of a 12mm wrench around the hex key. With the torque I can apply by hand with a standard 12mm wrench I could not get the freehub to budge.
Before I start increasing the torque, I want to make sure that these are right-hand threads threading into the hub body, so from the non-drive side I should be turning clockwise.
A comment on the above-referenced thread about the 12mm flats being a nut gave me pause -- I've never seen that configuration.
I live a plane flight away from any bike shop so local expertise is not available.
