How do I remove the castle nut on the hub assembly of my 2001 Dodge Ram? I need to replace the hub but I can't get the castle nut to budge. Impact guns and breaker bars won't move it at all.


the nut that you are trying to undo may be a left hand thread ( anti clockwise to undo ) try it that way to see if it loosens it ........cheers.

How do we loosen a the spindle when trying to replace an axle on a 1997 honda civic


I am not sure if your question is "The center axle nut is stuck and will not budge. How do I loosen it?" or if the question is "I've removed the center axle nut, how do I get the axle out of the hub?" So I'll just answer both questions.

Starting with the first question, if the center axle nut is stuck beyond your ability to remove it, the simplest way is to pay someone else to do it. Drive the car to a shop or garage with power tools, and ask them to loosen the nut. Most places will do it for $20 or even less if you ask nicely. A 3/4 in. impact gun will take the nut right off. Then put it back on snug but not too tight for the drive back.

If you absolutely want to do it yourself. Assuming that you have the correct size socket (about 30mm), and you've removed the castle nut and the cotter pin. Liberally pply "Liquid Wrench" or "PBblaster" to the nut and let it sit overnight or at least a couple of hours - this really makes a big difference. Start with a 1/2 in. breaker bar (3/4 in. would be better). If the breaker bar by itself does not give you enough leverage, get a 4-foot or 5-foot length of steel pipe to fit over the bar as an extension to give more leverage. Be careful not to over do it, if the nut is seriously stuck, body weight can break the 1/2 in. bar with an extension of this length.

If this does not work, get a propane torch, apply heat directly to the nut to expand it. Then try to turn it with the bar while it's hot.

If this still does not work, get a dremel tool or a cold chisel and cut the nut. Since you are replacing the axle you do not need to worry about the threads.

Now, if you've undone the center axle nut, and cannot figure out how to get the axle out of the hub, there are a few things that help. First, you must undo the outer tie-rod end from the spindle, to allow the spindle to pivot away from the control arm. Use a puller tool on the tie rod end, so you do not damage it. As an alternative to disconnecting the tie-rod, you have the option to disconnect either the strut arm or the ball joint - it doesn't matter as long as you give the knuckle the degree of freedom it needs to fall away from the axle. Then, use a mallet to tap the end of the axle and disengage it from the hub.

Good luck, and let me know if you have any questions.

Remove/replace front rotors


Actually, it’s a bit involved, but you can do it.
Loosen the wheel lug nuts, raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands. Remove the wheel and install two lug nuts with 3mm washers under them to hold the disc in place (if the two disc retaining screws are still in place, this will be unnecessary)
Remove the brake caliper. It is not necessary to disconnect the brake hose. After removing the caliper bolts, suspend the caliper out of the way with a piece of wire. Remove the two caliper mounting bracket to steering knuckle bolts.
Remove the driveaxle hub nut. To prevent the hub from turning, put a prybar between two of the wheel studs and against the ground, then loosen the nut.
Remove the cotter pin and loosen the lower ball joint nut about three full turns. Don’t remove it. Separate the lower control arm from the steering knuckle (you’ll need to get or rent a two-jaw puller for that).
Swing the knuckle/hub assembly out away from the car and push the driveaxle through the hub assembly until the end of the driveaxle is free of the hub. The shaft on the end of the driveaxle is often hard to dislodge from the hub, so you may have to tap the outer end of the shaft with a soft mallet until it pulls easily out of the hub.
After the hub and axle are separated, support the outer end of the driveaxle with a piece of wire to avoid unnecessary stain on the CV joint.
Remove the four bolts that hold thehub and brake disc assembly to the steering knuckle and remove the hub and disc.
Put a pry bar or something like one between two of the wheel studs to keep the whole thing from turning as you maybe put your feet against the bar, and then remove the four bolts that hold the disc to the hub assembly. Then you will have your disc. Installation is the reverse.
I hope this helps you. Give yourself plenty to time to deal with it.

Front left rotor wont release. axle nut is removed hub will not slide


The following might help you. It is the rotor removal process for your car, most of which you have apparently done:
Loosen the wheel lug nuts, raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands. Remove the wheel and install two lug nuts with 3mm washers under them to hold the disc in place (if the two disc retaining screws are still in place, this will be unnecessary)
Remove the brake caliper. It is not necessary to disconnect the brake hose. After removing the caliper bolts, suspend the caliper out of the way with a piece of wire. Remove the two caliper mounting bracket to steering knuckle bolts.

Remove the cotter pin and loosen the lower ball joint nut about three full turns. Don’t remove it. Separate the lower control arm from the steering knuckle (you’ll need to get or rent a two-jaw puller for that).

The shaft on the end of the driveaxle is often hard to dislodge from the hub, so you may have to tap the outer end of the shaft with a soft mallet until it pulls easily out of the hub.

Remove the four bolts that hold thehub and brake disc assembly to the steering knuckle and remove the hub and disc.

I think that's a 130lb bolt that's propbably going to take even more torque to loosen it. you need a breaker bar on the rright size socket to fit the nut in the middle of the crank. remove the driver tire and all the plastic trim. With the front of the car safely up on jack stands and the hand break applied you should have easy access. Air tools often work best to loosen the nut. but if you need to stop the crank turning to put some serious force on a breaker bar, have a friend put the car in 1st and hold the foot break down as you push the breaker bar towards the back of the car with your foot. you need to lay in front of the car with your legs under it to push against the breaker bar.
If that fails you can wedge the breaker bar against the frame member and do a quick blip on the ignition key to turn the crank. watch out for flying breaker bars though.
putting it back on is just as hard as you need to get up to 130lbs torque to keep in on safely..

I need instructions on how to replace rear wheel bearings on my 1994 Honda Civic


Bearings are pressed into the hubs...much easier, faster and economical (if you don't have a press) to replace the complete bearing/hub assembly, no pressing is needed, since bearings are already pressed into the new hubs. Cost..aprox, 60 buxs each.
Here are the steps for the rear replacement...
Loosen the lug nuts on a rear wheel. 2) Chock the wheels and jack the rear of the car on the side with the lug nuts that you just loosened. 3) Remove the wheel by removing the lug nuts. 4) Pry open the dust cap covering the center of the axle/spindle. A small screwdriver tapped into the space between the hub and dust cap will work well for this. 5) With the dust cap now removed, use a thin center punch to straighten the little dent in the rim of the spindle nut so that you will be able to turn it freely in the next step. 6) Use a 32mm socket and a large breaker-bar to loosen the spindle nut. Unscrew the nut all the way and place it in a clean, safe area. 7) You should now be able to slide the hub/bearing assembly from the shaft. 8) Installation is the reverse of removal. Use plenty of high-temperature wheel bearing grease on all surfaces before you mount the replacement hub assembly.

IMPORTANT: Torque the spindle nut to 134 ft/lbs....(per manual specs)

When reinstalling the dust caps, tap them gently into place to avoid denting them...Install wheels, jack her down and pat yourself on the back...job complete.
Good luck..hope this will fixya up...please take time to leave me a fixya rateing...

1. Put the vehicle in gear, apply the parking brake and break loose the driveaxle/hub nut with a socket and large breaker bar.
2. Loosen the wheel lug nuts, raise the vehicle and support is securely on lackstands. Remove the wheel. Remove the driveaxle/hub nut.
3. Unbolt the brake caliper and hang it out of the way with wire. Remove the brake disc.
4. On models with four wheel ABS, trace the electrical lead for the wheel speed sensor along the upper control arm, then forward along the frame rail and unplug the electrical connector.
5. Remove the hub assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts. Remove the brake disc shield and wheel speed sensor assembly and set aside.
6. Tap the hub assembly from side-to-side to break it loose from the steering knuckle. Pull the hub assembly off the end of the driveaxle. Wrap the end of the driveaxle with a rag to prevent damaging it. If the hub is stuck on the splines on the end of the driveaxle, use a puller to free it.
7. Installation is reverse of removal process. Be sure to lubricate the driveaxle splines with multi-purpose grease, and tighten all of the fasteners to the proper torque.
