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

I took off the brake apparatus, but am unable to remove the big shiny nut. The Chilton book for Subaru 1985-1996 on page 7-10 lists a removal of a castle nut and cotter pin. I can't find neither. How do I remove the nut?

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 front rotar


rotar doesn't contain the studs, the plate/hub behind the rotar does - you need a 32mm socket to undo the axle nut to then get at the hub (need a flat screw driver to lever the nut tang up first). If it's seized on put the rotar and wheel back on (leave the axle nut off) and gently rock it in a top-bottom motion (not radially or axially) to free it up. you can then gain access to the hub and studs. put the wheel nuts back on the studs 2 -3 turns so that you have a 'seat' and using a bolt with a smaller dia to punch them out

How do you remove the rotors on a 1995 ford bronco


The rotors on most vehicles are removed by (1) removing the wheel, (2) remove the silver colored cap in the center of the hub, (3) remove the cotter pin that goes through the axle nut and axle, (4) remove the axle nut, (5) remove the disc brake caliper (6) now pull on the rotor. It should slide off the axle. Reassemble in reverse order, being sure that the axle bearings are in place with proper amount of grease.

How do you remove front rotors on a 2007 subaru legacy


Remove wheel, Brake caliper then the Brake caliper support bracket. Then Rotor slides right off of Wheel studs. Remember to support vehicle properly, and to make sure brake calipers are fully compressed before removing. After caliper is removed try try to support it out of the way. Then on the bake of the brake caliper support bracket there are 2 bolts. Remove them and the rotor will have room to be removed from drive axle hub. Hope this helps and have a great day.

Cv joint for a 1992 subaru legacy


Ok here's a couple helpfuls before i start if you have PB Blaster, that works great on spindle bolts. Another thing you will need is a long pry bar (maybe a crowbar if you had to) with a flat tapered end. You will need to remove your tire, spray the PB Blaster on the axle nut, and the 2 spindle bolts going through the strut.remove the axle nut, and the 2 spindle bolts, and seperate the strut from the spindle. Then swing the spindle and push down on it as you remove the axle spline from the hub. Once you do that, check the transmission side of the axle, to see if it has a "doul roll pin" that you need to tap out with a hammer and punch, but it may be the simple locking ring internaly at the end of the splined shaft. Then all you do is pry it back, make sure you have a very firm place to use for leverage, and give it a hard shove and it should pop right out. or you may need to repeat the prying step a few times. When installing the new axle, make sure it's snapped in completely on the transmission side so you don't damage it. Then all you need to do is reassemble it all.
Also when doing this, make sure you support the car by the body, behind the front wheel under the fender/door area. you will need to let the lower controal arm hang to do this.
Hope that does it for you,
Good luck!
