I need to replace my front axle. I've bought the new axle with bearings and lithium grease, but I obviously need to remove the old axle. I know I need to use a cone spanner on one side, and a socket or spanner on the other side to remove it.
How can I easily identify which side of the axle to use the cone spanner on? Will only 1 side of the axle have the appropriate nut for the cone tool?
I've used a 17mm socket on one side, and a cone tool on the opposite side, and it just won't budge.
