5. You cant take off that nut, other wise it will spin, so Put your wheel back on, 3 lug screw is okay. Drop your car down. Now lets take off that nut, grab your 32mm socket wrench or your impact gun, and reverse it. now jack up the car off the ground

How good is your electric impact wrench? Comparable to the pneumatics?

Holy thread revival...but before I get flamed for staring a thread without searching, i found this. Perfect...needed to know how many MM the rear spindle nut was. 32MM it is! Thanks for this thread, it's great!

grind it down with a grinder or dremel. and use a flat head

use dw40 or db blaster loosen it up

get an Philips head or flat head, tap it with hammer and the rust should move around and then try to screw it off. once you got that off don't need to put it back on with the new

You hit something in such a way as to bend the backing plate? Luckily it didn't damage anythine else. Somewhere up in this old thread about such a basic repair that's really rather easy if you have the skills and the right tools, someone said that an electric impact is the same as an air impact. I disagree. My Craftsman electric does like 150 ft. lbs., good for removing tires, and other fairly low torque jobs (like rear hubs). My air impact does 700 ft. lbs. I'd like to see you remove the front axle nuts with an electric impact wrench....ain't going to happen! That and using the proper tools prevents things like stripped screws.......

I looked at this post today because I had a stripped lug nut on my right rear wheel and couldnít get it off nor could I fit an extractor between the nut and wheel. So I ground the metal cap off and loosened the spindle nut and took my wheel/rotor/hub off all together and drilled out the stud from the back. Thank you!!!í So relieved to get that off.
