the socket will be metric size and it could be European metric which means that the socket size will be one off Asian socket size for example Asian sizing goes 10-12-14-17-19-21 etc where the other goes 11-13-15-16-20-22 etc
if the one you are using is a fraction too big get a socket 1 size smaller
use an impact gun to undo the bolt
Chilton online manuals has decent (at best) step-by-step instructions. It lacks detail, but if you have some auto knowledge, it's not too bad. When I removed my head bolts, out of 14, 4 did NOT snap! Yes, that's right, 10 of them snapped! Rather than spending $300 on an extraction kit I found a metric bolt that fit into the bolt hole - not threaded, just in the top part where there are no threads. You need a guide to drill into the snapped bolt piece. After finding the right sized bolt, I cut it to about 3/4". Then I used a nut to tighten it, centered on my drill press. I used a good bit (with plenty of oil) to drill a hole right through the top, centered. This worked as my guide, and ALL 10 snapped pieces came out VERY easily. DON'T SPEND $300 ON AN EXTRACTION KIT!!

Instructions 1.Set the vehicle transmission in "Park" and engage the emergency brake before attempting to remove the front right axle. Place wood blocks behind the rear wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling and loosen the lug nuts one complete turn on the right front wheel with a tire tool.
2. .Lift the front passenger side of the vehicle with a floor jack and slide a jack stand under the vehicle frame near the wheel. Lower the floor jack so the vehicle is sitting on the jack stand and move the floor jack out of the way.
3. Remove the lug nuts with the tire tool and set the front passenger wheel out of the way. Take the cap off the end of the axle with a standard screwdriver and remove the cotter pin from the axle with a pair of pliers.
4. Slide the crown washer off the axle and loosen the axle nut with a crescent wrench. Unfasten the top and bottom bolts that secure the brake caliper to the rotor with a socket wrench and slide the bolts out of the caliper.
5. Lift the brake caliper off the rotor and remove the brake pads from the caliper. Suspend the brake caliper from the vehicle frame with a wire hanger and take the rotor off the axle.

Take the channel bolt out from between the sway bar and lower A-arm that the thru-bolt ran through, and loosen the bolts that secure the front right axle to the center flange with a socket wrench and breaker bar. You may need to loosen the bolts with the breaker bar before removing them with the socket wrench.
7. Slide the front right axle off the center flange and let it rest on the A-arm. Lift the front passenger side up with the floor jack to get enough room between the steering knuckle and A-arm and slide the axle out of the vehicle. Install in reverse order.
