My (relatively low mileage) March 2000 5 Speed Brompton has a loose front frame hinge. I've bought a new hinge spindle pin but can't get the old one out. Unlike most of the Brompton parts I've bought, this one came without instructions.
From what I can see, the existing spindle looks different. The one that's installed has a couple of split sides at one end whereas the new one just has ridges at one end. There one nylon washer on one side but not on the other - not sure if one has worn away or was never there?
I've tried using a bolt, G-cramp and some wood (to protect the paint) but can't shift the old one.
Extensive searches have only found info on the rear hinge which is OK on my bike.
Anyone got any experience of this hinge (same as handlebar hinge?) and how to remove the spindle?
