Angry Wheel Bearing Lock Nut Q

i searched and found no straight answer.

im trying to install my driver side axle on my 95 auto sentra. the b**ch had to pause because i dont have big enough socket for the nut thats in the middle of the wheel bearing/rotor.... what size is that? do i need 1/2 inch wrench? i just got basic wrenches.

those are the steps, correct me if wrong:
-take wheel off
-remove the little pin
-remove struts monting bolts
-separate the wheel bearing from the axle
-yank the axle out gently


Thank you.
Big Boss

you will need a 1/2 ratchet and use a 32mm deep socket

haha, yea, no prob.

this is how i typically do it

1. remove centercap off wheel
2. remove cotter pin from axle
3. remove axle nut with 32mm socket
4. remove wheel
5. loosen strut bolts (17mm)
6. ease axle out gently

the reason i take the axle nut off before anything is because it is usually on pretty tight and once the car is on jackstands..trying to loosen it up becomes hard(even if you have someone else hit the brakes) because it is usually torqued down pretty bad and all you end up doing is spinning the spindle which gets you nowhere. hope that helps

if the wheel is on the ground, no one needs to step on the brakes...just as long as the e-brake is engaged, u should be fine.

pick up 2 more jackstands. You got four corners to work with. And yes, it's important to use a torque wrench when mounting the tires. Unless you want to break a hub bolt, and I don't think I would ride to the auto parts store with just 3 nuts holding a tire on there.
