    Assume you got the right tools eg whip etc? Soak with plus gas or wd40 maybe.

    yeap already got the lock ring off and the first 2 rings but then it just feels welded onto the freehub body, i have sprayed some wd 40 on it but still not movinging at all

    Hold onto the freehub so it cant spin.

    Gently tap the teeth of the rings with something solid (spanner?) in an anti clockwise direction. That should free them up.

    Yep, as above. You’ve might have this kinda thing going on, depending on the hub/cassette combo;

    You could try poking something with a flat end through the spokes onto the back surface of the cassette and tap with a hammer. Mover round the cassette. I had to do this with a cassette that had dug into a Hope freehub body.

    Risky business. You may well end up removing the freehub body rather than the cassette.

    True, but sometimes needs must. It was showing no inclination to come off any other way. Mind, I was gentle with the tapping not a big whack.

    If its a Hope pull on the cassette and you will remove the freehub body. Then you can put the freehub/cassette on the floor (smallest sprocket downwards) and gently push on the larger sprocket to remove it.
