having a hard time taking out the axle nut. Used a lot of PB blaster and wd40 and still not doing the trick. used like 4 breaker bar already and broke all of them. Blowtorched the bolt til it was red and still nothing. Dont have access to a impact gun and cant drive my car to a shop to get it fix so im am out of ideas. Can anybody please give me som tip on how to take this bolt out without using an impact gun. I dont want to break anymore tools.
You shouldnt have to move that tab holding it. Its really ductile metal and the torque of the nut is much greater then the force you would need to get past that. 1/2 breaker bar with the shaft of a floor jack should easily do it.

i just removed front rotors on my dads 94 accord and had to remove the axle nut.....some pb blaster and a dewalt 325 ft/lbs forward/reverse impact gun did the trick....def took as many hits with the gun as did my crank bolt on my teg lol.
I broke a breaker bar on that nut, one of those 3 foot things that are intended specifically for the purpose. Then got a stronger one and put a 6-foot THICK pipe on it. The main problem was the socket slipping off the axle nut. Eventually it gave though. You are using weak pipes / breaker bars.
Also, don't jerk them, apply consistent force if you aren't already.
