    Normally right hand thread, but there are some wierd things I have not seen.

    Also they are loctite held so, put some heat on it before you put the wrench on it. Do not over heat it, just enough to swell the nut and not the shaft it is held to.

    Peace,
    Paul

    Unhappy

    well so far the nut is wining.
    I'll break out the torches later today after the wife takes her drivers license road test. its about time she gets around to getting her license.

    i have to wonder why there is no grease fitting on this thing to get some grease in the bearings ?? the u-joints inside the boots get no grease due to location, but you would think the wheel bearing would have a grease fitting ??

    at a little over 200,000 mil. i would like to grease it up a bit. thinking of taking off the boots to grease the u-joints in the hack shaft as well. but for the moment i just want to get to the wheel bearing. I'm a bit concerned about putting too much heat to it and causing damage to the bearings. any chance they have a rubber seal in them ??

    Half shaft!

    CV axle!

    James sometime if you can cut the band without cutting into the boot you can just push them off the the CV and fill the boot with grease but if you tear the boot you'll have to replace the boot.

    Most drive wheel bearings used now are sealed with no grease or zerk fittings needed. Most 1/2 shafty stub axels are torqued to 300 to 350 foot pounds or so. Warm up the nut and hit it with a good impact. righty tighty lefty loosy. a breaker bar and a cheater pipe works too. leave the wheel on if you can and set the parking brake or have the wife stand on the brake to hold the wheel.

    1/2 shafts have CV joints in them. An inner and outer race with 6 or so ball bearings. They last longer if you clean and repack them from time to time. Don't pack the joint and boot full. The weight of the grease when spun at highway speed will blow the boot out.

    This is gona sound dumb!!!
    Is there a "locking" device on the nut?
    Some have a grove cut in the shaft and the thin lip is bent into the grove.
    The worst one I did had to use a 3/4 breaker bar and LONG (4') cheater.
    When it came loose, it almost put me on the ground, I aint small 6'4" 230 lbs.
    Get your cheater just right and put a jack under the end and raise the jack, that worked for me in the past. Make sure someone is on the cars brake.
    Be safe

    that life puts out.
