Its put on with a 3/4in drive impact gun, so you would need an impact gun to get it off. Generally two or three times the torque used on lug nuts.
You may be able to block the wheels and use a cheater pipe on a long breaker bar but its not easy.

SOURCE: I'm trying to remove the

Your hub is a complete unit including wheel flange and bearing. Thje axle passes through the assembly. You will find three twelve point 13mm bolts that go into the rear of the hub through the steering knuckle.
To remove the assembly, Loosen those three bolts, run them out part way and use a socket you don't want (you will destroy it) Put the socket on each bolt and use a heavy hammer to drive the assembly out of the knuckle. Alternate sides so it does not bind. use lots of solvent on the hub parting surface.
One tip: Disconnect the tie rod end so the assembly is easy to turn from side to side.
The hub assembly is only rebuildable in a factory. It is replaced as a unit. While you have it apart, always check the axle universal for binding or play. If you remove the axle for any reason, when putting it back in don't drag it on the bottom of the tube, The seal is inside the tube next to the gear set. Dragging the axle will knock the seal out.

Hi,

The first thing you should do, is check for battery power and ensure your instrument cluster lights come on when you turn your key to ON.

It's possible you have an issue with your starter motor, ignition switch or even the crank/cam sensor.

Have your diagnostic codes read by your local dealership or a mobile auto electrician, as this should immediately identify where the problem lies.

Trying to remove the front hub/bearing assembly and absolutely cannot get the top bolt out even with a swivel socket. what can I do to get it out?


You have to take the strut loose, and the tierod off the spindle. Then the spindle will have enough play so you can push the cv axle back or all the way off.

the spindle nut is what hold the rotor in place on the axle. they can't really "go bad" unless its been overtorqued. you should be able to buy a new one at any auto parts store or a dealer. just make sure you check the axle threads for signs of stretching or any other damage. if the shaft itself is wrecked, you will have to re-thread it with a die set, or replace the axle.
