Do you have to spread the strut fork apart to get the axle shaft through it? The KIA manual says to to spread it aprart but doesn't say if it is necessary to do so to remove the axle shaft.

I think it would be better to disconnect the fork rather than spreading it apart. I really don't know how you would spread it apart without damaging it.

So are you saying the axle shaft will not fit through the strut fork? This is what I'm really wanting to know.

On kiatechinfo.com it says to loosen the fork bolts and open up it with a rubber hammer.
