FRONT HUB AND BEARING NUT RETAINER REMOVAL - 2002 MUSTANG

NEVER SEEN A RETAINER LIKE THIS ONE. EVEN IF I LIFT THE TABS OUT OF THE AXLE THREAD IT WILL NOT COME OFF. IS IT POSSIBLE THE RETAINER IS MARRIED TO THE NUT AND THEY MUST BE REMOVED AT SAME TIME?

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF, TAKING AN 1//2 INCH SOCKET AND BREAKER BAR WILL WORK IN REMOVING THE NUT RETAINER AND NUT AT THE SAME TIME?

OR, IS THERE SOME OTHER WAY OR TOOL FOR REMOVING THIS TYPE NUT RETAINER?
