Removal/2006 kia sorento front roors

After bending the indentation on the collar of the 1.25" nut, I could not break it loose. Should I try a breaker bar. Shouldn't this be only zeroed out to hold bearings and rotor on axle?

If i understand the question , you want to remove the rotors ? don't mess the that big nut , just remove the caliper , there should be 2 phillips screws holding the rotor onto the hub , unless last guy didn't replace them , rotor pops off at that point , if there may be a little rustage on them you might have to give them a slight tap with a soft hammer , to free them , now , if you are trying to replace that sealed bearing thats different , repost if so . thanks .

Need help getting the axle nut off of 2004 kia sorento nut won't budge

make sure you have a good brand breaker bar(lifetime warranty best), the proper sized socket(impact type), and either an old bumper jack that fits over the breaker bar or a 5 to 6 foot fence post. leave the whole vehicle on the ground, if you cant reach nut with wheel on, then have a helper stomp on the brakes firmly while you put breaker bar at nine oclock, slip jack or post over breaker bar and firmly add your weight and a friends to the end of bar pushing down until SOMETHING gives, hopefully its the nut. :)

Cant take the wheel off

Spray the base of the lug nuts liberally with penetrating lubricant and let it sit overnight. Break the nuts loose with a lug wrench or a breaker bar -do not jack the car up yet. Break the nuts loose while all 4 tires are on the ground with the full weight of the car on them. Jack the car up once they are loosened to remove the wheel. To reinstall the wheel, snug down the nuts with wheel off the ground, then drop the car on down completely and tighten the nuts to factory ratings

Can't get the bearing hub out to replace the bearing

You'll need to remove the 2 strut bolts holding the hub to the strut, remove the axle nut. Pull the hub towards you and try taping on the axleshaft to try to push it out. You might try spraying some WD-40 where the axleshaft goes thru the hub.

1993 Mazda Protege front hub. cannot remove nut, broke two rachets and one breaker bar. this thing will not turn. Any suggestions?

you need to look to see if the nut is creased in one spot looks like a chisel indentation if so you need to get a flat head punch hammer the crease outward until it looks even with cv joint shaft take a plumbers torch with map gas yellow bottle heat the nut all around about 30 seconds get a breaker bar with a pipe extention break it free make sure your going the right way counter clockwise break free you might have to heat a couple of times spray pentrating oil after you heat goodluck
