ok m8. i'm not sure either. the aftermarket one on the old astra was fitted by a garage. so im not sure if he fitted it with a spring or not. i know that the standard wheel ive taken off on my new astra was spring loaded. i'll av a look in a bit

easiest with 2 people, undo the nut until its nearly off. mate in passenger seat, pulling the left side of the wheel, and the top, you pull the right side, and the bottom. 2 mins of jerking the wheel like that and it will be off.
