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?

Re: removal/2006 kia sorento front roors
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 .

Jack up car use jack stands remove wheel. Get a 3/4 breaker bar and a socket to fit nut on front wheel remove cotter pin remove nut. Loosen nut before jacking up Undo nut on lower ball joint and tie rod. Push down on tie rod hit housing with big hammer it should come right off. Now pry down on the frame holding ball joint and hit the housing with a big hammer it should break loose if it doesn't rent a tool at auto parts store. Pull strut assembly away from axle and pull axle out. When you put new one in push till you here it snap in.
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. :)
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
Trying to change the front rotors on a 2006 kia sorento and can not get the rotor off. There is 2 screws on there and this big round silver thing right in the center of it. How do we take the rotor off?
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.
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
