Re: Hub nut / axle nut stuck - Tried almost everything

Jees.... unless you are a right wimp, 6ft pole ought to lift the corner of the ground

If you have a trolley jack, rest the end of the pole on the jack and jack up until car lifts.
Pre-load the nut in other words.
Belt three bells out of top of socket/drive bar with a lump hammer to see if shock will help.

Or try Noel's grind the side of the nut off.

Silly question but not a left hand thread is it?
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
