Wheel hub puller

You should be able to hire one, tell them it's for Mercedes, make sure it
has all the bits to work with 5 studs - there are many different designs and
on some the 5th "bit" can get lost. Also make sure it's strong - the hubs
can be very tight and it's not unknow for them to break even a good quality
puller. If they are really tight you might find the wheel studs have
stretched (makes it difficult to spin on the wheel nuts with your fingers)
and so they should be replaced.

Never ever pound on the threaded end of the axle (driveshaft), it's
relatively soft and very easy to damage the threads - often that's then
enough to make the complete driveshaft unusable, very sad as good quality
driveshafts are becoming a rare part.

Is anyone willing to let me borrow their wheel hub puller for a day or
two? A deposit will happily be applied to the transaction.

-or-

Does such a device have any special requirements that would preclude me
from using a 'basic' imported one?

-or-

If so, and I need to make one, what are the size, thread of the lug
studs & spindle? Bolt circle?

Thanks,

Alan Wysocki
