Well the centre nut that goes through the hub is seriously FT
In the past I have had to use a breaker bar and a 6 ft scaffold pole onto it to get the buggers to loosen.
Then the joint itself is held onto the shaft with a wire clip that begs belief as to how hard it can be to get the joint of the shaft with a hammer.
So If you are capable it's a side of the road job at a pinch.
