Wow - doing rear disc on an 08 Transit for the first time.

I really thought that Ford had obtained the ultimate in stupid designs with their front disc arrangement!

But hey - with a lot of perseverance and practice - they have managed to excel themselves and come up with an even more crazy design!!!!

Don't the f**kers even look at other manufacturers vehicles????

Ok,

Pressing the Disc off didn't do much except threaten to crack the disc.

Spoke to the local stealers and managed to talk to an actual mechanic.

He said ignore the press and warnings about hammers.

Chisels hammered between the back of the wheel stud and the disc. We had three thin chisels and tapped them in slowly and evenly and then went up a size once the disc moved slightly.

You would never think that about 8mm of interference could be so tight! Wondering if pressing the disc distorts it and tightens it further? No sign of anti seize anywhere. :(
