Thats what I was thinking, like when changing brakes its easier if you crank the wheel to one side so you have access to everything, didn't have a problem squeezing air tools back there

Yes, if you turn the wheels out, you can put a shallow 3/8 13MM socket on with a two or six inch extension then carefully keep it square with a 3/8 breaker bar, and it'* no problem on both mine. I did however soak them with the PB for about 15 min. before trying. Time to road test and hope my ABS idiot light goes off now!!!!!!

If you get the third bolt out and the hub is stuck, search for Danthurs thread on changing hubs and look at the jack screw you can easily fabricate that makes getting the hub out an easy task.

IIRC I got the third bolt out by using a 12" extension on a 3/8" drive ratchet, with a shallow socket.
