Re: wheel bearing

The usual method seems to be to knock the nut round with a hammer and chisel after first flattening the tab on the lock washer. This gnarls up the nut but seems to be what garages and the like do. You can get a thin walled socket to fit, the Ford Transit has the same size hub nuts and quite a few car spares places keep a reasonably cheap £8-10ish box spanner type thing for this.

See how you go.
