The nut seems like it is welded on. Have tried impact wrench-30 inch-pull handle with a four-foot extension and all I got was a bent pull handle. Also tried heating nut with propane torch--still nothing. I'm at a loss as to what to do next. The car isn't worth taking to a repair shop. The only thing I know is pull the hub axle and all. Thanks

Hi,

What nut are you referring to? If it is a lug nut, the stud should break if you have that much pressure on it.

If you are referring to the axle hub nut, that is by nature very tight, but again, that should have taken it off.

Let me know exactly what you are working with.

Take care,

Joe

I'm trying to get the axle lug nut off. I only get to work on it on Mondays and Tuesdays. I'm thinking of renting a 3/4 inch impact wrench as I only have a 1/2 inch and it isn't a very good one.

Hi,

The axle nut will be tight, but I have always removed them with a 1/2" impact. The idea that you bent the breaker bar/pipe is really out of the ordinary.

It sounds like you have done a lot already. When I have certain bolts that won't move, I can usually get them to move with a breaker bar and a heavy hammer. LOL Smacking the breaker bar a few times usually gets them loose.

Let me know if you are able to remove it with a bigger impact. I'm interested in knowing.

Take care,

Joe
