Hey guys i have 2005 3L diesel d22

We are replacing the knuckle assembly as the thread for the locking nut is gone.

We have all the bolts off but the thing wont come out of the bottom piece, ill show a pic.

We tried using a puller screw thing which wont work and we tried hitting it with a hammer.

If anyone has any tips on how to go about it would be greatly appreciated :))

Any questions i will answer thanks in advance

Generally if something like that is stuck a bit of heat from a blow torch will help loosen it up a bit
I recently had a similar problem with a lower arm and because i didnt have a torch I cut it out with a angle grinder! which wasn't a problem because i was replacing the arm anyway

Okay thanks, i dont think we have a blowtorch but could maybe find one, and how do you get it out once its loosened up? just rip it out with ur hands?

I would think if you cant get any heat on it plenty of penetrating oil (not wd40) and a gear puller would get it off!
Failing that, new lower arm too?

A cannister blow torch is just a few dollars from any DIY type store. It takes a while to get it hot enough, but has worked for me on many a stubborn suspension joint.
As above, an angle grinder and new parts is the final option.
Not just you, garages take the same approach.
