I don't mean "difficult", I mean it appears to have an actually impossible instruction. Or am I missing something obvious? Here's the deal (pardon my lack of standard names for parts):
I recently dusted off my 8858 Rebel Wrecker, and decided to build for the first time ever the alternate model, a quad bike. It's fine, despite its fondness for difficult-to-separate brick combinations, until I get to the steering linkage, which involves a connecting bar with a socket on either end.
One socket connects to the rack (a toothed plate with a ball on both ends; this happens in Step 8), the other to a ball on a part that forms the wheel mount. The catch is that the connecting bar has little flanges in the sockets that (a) make it so the ball won't immediately pop out the other side, but crucially here, (b) make it so the both balls must be inserted from the same side. The model has the balls on opposite sides. I cannot figure out how to make this work without breaking the flanges. Any advice?
