Get a strong socket and a log breaker bar. I have a 4 foot breaker bar that hold 3/4 drive sockets. Mine was tight also but it came loose with that bar. The only other suggestion would be to heat it up quickly with a torch and go for it.

Front Skf hub bearing torque spec 2003 dodge ram 2500 turbo diesel

Tighten the spindle nut to 149 ft-lbs to seat the bearing then
. rotate the axle 5 to 10 times to seat the hub bearing, then
tighten the spindle nut to a final torque of 263 ft-lbs I would just use a good impact gun to get it there.

Can i replace my frobt hub with the axle still attached

if the nut is stuck , way not get expert help.

it will come of in the right hands (heat, and impact gun)


heat axle to about 200F. to 300f

the as it cools hit it with penetration oil.

as it cools it may suck in the oil (physics trick)

and now the impact gun. no shop air, makes hard work on any cars.

so if no shop air, use a 1/2 drive or more breaker bar.

and use a pipe extenson, most 1/2 will snap at over 150lbs.

so 3/4" works better

but the impact gun works best.

you can youtube this > why not do that.?

here is first google hit on hubs

or here is honda real.

what you need is obvious. if you just look at the real drawings.

brake page and hub,

tell my how would you pass the hole hub

thru the small, hole in the knuckle spindle.

you going to buy a whole new axle and knuckle.

Need to know the torque value of hub axle nut on 1996 mercury mistique..

It is very smart of you to want to torque the axle nut, the number one cause of wheel bearing failure is due to improper nut tighening. a lot of techs just use an impact gun to tighten the nut and that is very bad,Anyway the torque specs are to tighten to 214 ftlbs. god day

Replace left front axle seal

First you'll have to remove the axle shaft, and here's detailed directions so use whatever info you need. First you'll need to jack up your vehicle place your jack just behind the front lower control arm mount. Take off your tire/wheel, remove the cotter pin and the axle nut retainer, remove the 2 caliper mounting bolts, move the caliper out of the way and support it so it doesn't just hang by the brake hose. Now, slide your rotor off, next you'll need to remove the axle nut and at 180ft lbs of torque you'll need a breaker bar or a heavy duty impact. The nut should be a 36mm if I remember correctly. Remove the bolts holding hub to steering knuckle, remove hub now you can tap it with a hammer to help loosen it from splines on axle shaft. take off the dust cover, pull the axle shaft out now, take out your bad oil seal, grease splines, then install new seal, carefully reinstall axle shaft to avoid damaging the seal, reverse steps and you're good to go. Good luck with your repair

I have a 99 mitsubishi galant and attemted to replace hub. did all the fun brake removal had to beat rotor off ( stripped the little holes on your rotor that are threaded that you can thread little bolts...

spray rust lubricant and let it set for a while
you can also heat it up and then spray so the lubricant can penetrate into the gap.
put the axle nut on the axle to protect it and hit on it
since you are going to replace the axle so why care if it's bad.

Dont know how to put on wheel hub

While you did not mention the year, front or rear hub I have done most.
The hub bearing assembly is a sealed bearing that mounts with three bolts coming in from the axle side. An air impact gun will be required to remove the drive axle spindle nut that passes thru the center prior to disassembly. Remove the axle nut, three hub fasteners and ABS wire harness to the wheel speed sensor. Reinstall in reverse order

2002 chev impala, what is the torque spec on front hubs with abs

if they are the bolts that hold the hub and bearing in place just get the as tight as you can like putting lug nut on your wheels. if it's the axle nut just go as tight as you can by hand or impact gun

Do you have to remove either the upper or lower ball joint to remove front left cv axle?also is the hub have to be pressed on and off,or can i snug it up with the axle nut?

You will have to remove the lower joint to remove it. You can snug it up with the axle nut but it will require a air impact.

I need to change my front hub bearing and need to know if there is a specific torque for the axle nut.

Most mechanics just use an air impact and goes into it's set nice and snug. When I say nice and snug, I mean the axle is all the way into the back of the new hub and the nut is tight on the other side.
