Removing the rubber pad was not a problem: pull the edges and slide it up.
I'm using a wheel adapter and managed to get 17% off the center column. The '94 requires a 2 X 6 mm bolts on the 12 and 6 openings. Tried using a soft mallet gently on the back of the wheel. Even a drumroll cadence on the 3 and 9 from old school hip hop to the hula. Pushing in/out was another option. It still will not budge. Any other techniques/suggestions?
Is it wise to use 10WD40 in this situation?
