Why are you removing the wheel? If you just want to reset the axle nut you don't have to remove the wheel

    If you remove the but completely, you can drive the axle out. Use Cauthen not to damage the threads. I suggest a brass drift being lightly tapped with a hammer

    As for the tentioners, or screws at the end of the arm, wait to see if the wheel can be taken off without touching them. If you do loosen them, they will have to be adjusted after re-installing the wheel.

SOURCE: rear wheel hub nut

I used a 32 mm to remove hub nut on front. I guess it would be the same for back hub nut.

SOURCE: Can not remove lug nut caps 2003 x -type jaguar

I have an 04 xj8. the lug nuts are a good bad example of half baked engineering. the lug nuts are fabricated from ugly steel with an 11/16 hex end. to beautify this, Jaguar overlays the nut end with a stainless steel 3/4 inch cap, crimped to the nut. On top of this, the nut is to be torqued to 90+ ft-lb! The only way to remove the lug nut without damage is with a SIX POINT socket and a breaker bar or an impact wrench. Using a 12 point socket will deform the cap, causing the wrench to spin on the cap and or the cap to spin on the nut itself. If that has happened, it is possible to recover using a 15 oz or thereabouts ball peen hammer and a deep 3/4 inch impact socket (the black ones). Line up the socket to the cap, doing a best guess to where the flats are and give the socket a light blow. Keep trying that until the socket seems to stick on, then hit it harder. Eventually you will find the right point and the socket will go on and reform the cap. Then a breaker bar can remove the cap/nut. New assemblies can be had for about $6 from "partsbin" or "autohausaz".

SOURCE: ford fiesta 1999 rear wheel bearings

yes it is one big nut, however it looks like 4 individual nuts due to the fact that they are a thinly stacked layer or thin nuts held together by what you called the tab washer............only way to replace is to get a new one from ford........

Posted on Sep 19, 2009

Testimonial: "Thank-you for that, I have ordered a new one from the ford dealers. I just wonder why the 4 nuts were fitted in the first place? thank you"

I was driving my 2009 yamaha vstar 650 classic yesterday, and the speedometer stopped working. I stopped, I noticed the speedometer cable had come loose. I tightened back, but nothing! What do I do?

Check if the cable is not broken by twisting the inner cable anticlockwise and observe the speedo to see if it moves.
If ok, put it back on the wheel, making sure that the pin with flats is in the groove and tighten the nut. Good idea to pull the inner cable out and grease it with a light grease.
Good luck.

My hand water pump in a Jayco dove when hooked to mains pressure the handle will slowly rise and will run constantly.

Chance s . Are to much water pressure . Install a pressure gauge at your inlet .
One other this you might do # 1. Tun off water go to your hand pump and unscrew your faucet that looks like a jay or hook . This is where your water comes out . Once removed the tab you push will also come loose with a little jiggling . Their is a all thread with a adjusting nut . Just turn it onev time . Put it back together and test .

My saw powers up but blade is not moving

Is it belt driven and the belt is slipping or broken?
Is the shaft nut holding blade on loose?
Reverse threads are used on the nut to hold the blade. Was the wrong nut used and the blade is not tight?
The bearing on the blade shaft could be frozen.
Some of the possibilities I could think of so I hope this helps.

How to stop shaft from turning to remove nut and replace wheel

If you put a wrench on the nut on the other end of the shaft, you have a 50/50 chance that the nut you want loose will come loose. If the wrong one comes loose, you can remove that nut completely (and the wheel) then take the nut with you to the store to buy another one. Then put two nuts back on and tighten them together as a jamb nut. Then try again. If the wrong nut still turns, you have to tighten the pair of nuts together tighter. good luck

I am trying to replace the belts on my 93 Toyota Tercel and I am unable to remove the tension on the air pump/airconditioning so that I could replace the belt.

To remove the belt on the alternator side, loosen the the 14 mm nut and bolt that pivots the alternator and loosen the the 12 mm bolt that allows you to slide the alternator loose. The other belt that connects the power steering and the air condition compressor is a little trickier. You must loosen the the 14 mm nut that pivots the power steering but do not remove the nut completely. There are two other nuts, one 13 mm that can be reached below the vehicle looking upward that must be loosen. This creates the tension needed to release the belt. The last 14mm nut is located on a plate afixed to the side of the engine that is slotted. A special swivel type 14mm wrench is needed becuase there is not much room to work with. Once this is loose you will be able to loosen the belt to be able to take the belt off. If you can not take off this nut, your only recourse is to pry off the old belt with a screw driven and place the new belt in by hand by using the pulleys and rotate the belt manually on. This takes patience ans muscle. Once the belts are in place nmake sure to tighten the nuts and bolts to attain between 1/4" to 3/8" deflection arounf the center of the belts between the pulleys.
