That is an axle nut. It only hold s the axle into the hub assembly. 130 ft/lbs. Remove the caliper. 2 15mm bolts remove the caliper. The rotor should be loose. If there are star clips on 1 or 2 lug studs, cut them off and discard. These are for initial production only.

Took off lug nuts,popped center cap, tire wont come off

if you have alloy wheels, it is common that there is a reaction with the alloy and cast metal , causing the wheel to really stick tight to the hub. You need to knock the wheel off with a big hammer, possibly a sledge hammer. Hit it from the inside on the rim, this should brake the bond and you should be able to remove the wheel. Please do this in a safe manner, use an axle stand to support the car. once the wheel is off, do what you must and when refitting, clean the hub area where the wheel sits and use a smear of copper slip or vaseline or grease , to stop the same thing happening again. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES put any grease on the wheel studs/nuts or bolts
Hope this helps

I have a 2000 honda accord and was trying to replace the studs that were broke during tire removal. Do i have to take out axle nut(big nut) in the center? If so what is the proper way to remove.

You don't need to take out the axle. But you must take off the bignut plus the hub. That way you would have the medium advantage to knock out the broken stud. This has happened on my Odyssey once. And I had it done in shop for about 75-bucks. If you don't have the proper tools at home, it might be tough getting it done, though.

Removing lg nut from axle on driver side of 1995 Subaru Legacy

It is much easier to loosen the nut when the tire is on it and the wheel is on the ground. You need to remove the center cap to access it. With out the wheel and brakes on it you would have to find some way to hold the axle still while breaking free the axle nut.

Removing the front brake rotor on a 1998 Mazda Protege

You do not have to remove the big center nut. You might have to tap on it with a hammer to get it off. If there is anything solid near it to pry against (don't pry against the dust shield) try that too. If none of this helps you can try heating it near the center. You should be able to get it off without heating it but it is possible that that is what you will have to do.
