Cant take out AXLE nut

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.

What did you use for breaker bars?

I've used the handle from a floor jack and standing on it pushing down has always worked for me

i used a 6ft breaker bar and mine were original axles from 95. if mine came off yours certainly should.

you still have the wheel on/on the ground when you're cranking on it, right?

If you broke 4 breaker bars I believe your doing something wrong. Be sure to punch out the lock on the the rim of the nut...

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.

The way I do it, is I leave the car on the ground with the tire and everything, and just pop the center cap out.

Get a friend, put it in gear, pull up he Ebrake (so the back holds the front), stomp on the pedal,

Then I just jump on it with the socket in there. I went to a metal shop in the industrial area and went to their junk bin.

I found a 1/2 inch thick, 2 inch diameter steel pipe that is 4 feet long for 2 dollars, weights almost 20 lbs. Thats my breaker bar

Why is the word Integra underlined with red as a spelling mistake? =O ?

Not necessarily. I've had one that was rusted up so bad we broke 3 breaker bars and 2 1/2" drive wrenches.

We had to buy a 3/4 drive bar. That finally won.

Buy a quality breaker bar and try it again. A heat gun would also help.

Axle nut > 1/2 drive. This happened to me first hand as well.

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.
