How to remove drive wheel

The drive wheel has a locking tab washer under the bolt which holds the wheel assembly on the end of the drive shaft. Step one is to bend the tab (or tabs) away from the side of the bolt. Put a socket on the bolt to remove it. Make note of the washer and lock tab orientation because there is another tab on the inside which locks into the motor shaft keyway. Spray lube into the shaft and keyway to free up the wheel and remove. A wheel puller is sometimes helpful here. When replacing the parts use Loctite on the bolt and tighten. The final step is to bend a lock tab up against the bolt head to keep it from backing out. The hard part of this whole process is removing the wheel assembly from the motor shaft. It may have seized on to the shaft. Place anti-seize or grease on the shaft after cleaning and before reassembly.

Replacing front coil springs

It is possible that the assembly had to come apart to change the coil springs. How long ago did you have the springs done?

Installing wheel hub onto drive shaft and strut.

The strut would not extend. Strut are made to go inside of the coil spring, and held in the compressed position.
If the strut is sticking past the coil spring something has gone wrong. You'll need to compress spring and fix it.

Broken 4x4

once you have the passenger side/nearside drive shaft out use some thing long to slide in onto the head of the stuck drive shaft. use something soft like a old wooden broom handle then knock out using hammer. ford have used simple spring clips to keep there drive shafts in and thes are easily come by if deformed or squashed

Rotor replacing on a 240DL

The rotor has a very strong spring. just keep pulling. Be careful not to bend the shaft (I doubt that could happen). If you get a screwdriver or something to pry with, just try to force it straight up.

Rewind shaft installation

to remove the shaft, lift the knob until the film door opens, place a small screwdriver between the prongs and turn the knob to the left. pull the shaft down and out. replace the shaft------ if the new shaft has a notch on the collar just rotate the shaft while pushing back in. if no collar, use a pin to push the spring away while inserting the shaft----- don't force it or you will bend the spring.

Purchase part

If the threads are not stripped on the knob or shaft, just screw it on clock-wise.
If the threads are stripped on the shaft, it must be replaced, same with knob.
To replace the shaft (if the knob is off) just pull it down in the film compartment. now there is a spring to hold the shaft up or down if the new shaft has a beveled shoulder just turn the shaft while pushing it back up. If no beveled shoulder is on the shaft then with a long needle or pin hold the spring back while pushing the shaft back up. Don't bend the spring. just move it out of the way.
