      You are most welcome :-)
      I know how you feel but its sounds worse then it is. If there is a way to
      do it with the wheel on,
      you will want to remove it any how(GRIN) other wise it will be a lot harder
      to work on.
      The bigest thing to worry about when removing the wheel is to MARK the
      location of the wheel
      when you remove it so it goes back on in the same place. Also when removing
      it(you have to gently pry off the Roundel
      in the middle of the wheel and it will take a lot of preasure to remove the
      locking nut. When I did this on my car
      I had to slide a small pole on the rachet handle to get the extra leverage
      and it came right off(before that I sat there for quite a while
      working at it ;-).
