CV Axel Spindle Nut Stuck!!

Post by Red97 » Mon Oct 03, 2011 7:01 pm

I'm trying to replace my right CV Axel. I can't get the spindle nut off. I 've tried WD-40, heating with a touch, a half inch breaker bar with a pipe used as an extention (broke the breaker bar!!). I think I heard the nut laughing at me!! Any ideas?
If at first you don't succeed, you're about average!!

If everything seems to be in control, you're not going fast enough.

Go to the junktard and get a new spindle ;) easiest fix n far cheaper than the wasted gas n broken tools n posible damnage to the body of your car from flying tools.
Never no such thing as too many only not enough.
