put a lever in behind the hub and lever the shaft while buzzing the nut, or melt it with a gas axe

This is the most surreal thread I've seen in a long time haha

Am I lost or is he trying to loosen the hub nut with the wheel off the floor? I could have the wrong end of the stick though?

Is the whole driveshaft turning when you try to loosen it? if so, have you got both front wheels off the floor at same time?

If the end of the shaft has had the shit beaten out of it and the thread is badly damaged, then the nut could nut just spin without coming off. Of course, it could simply be the whole shaft turning as you guys suggest...

lol would be funny if that was the case mankee. If so just grind the end of the shaft off, or grind the nut off. I had a problem on my old celica where the hub nut just wouldnt loosen. Even tried the agricultural method of putting a huge extension on it and driving the car back and forth. Eventually ended up grinding it off

no, im not a total mong. the nut is spinning on the thread. i shanked it cuz i turned them the wrong way. i assumed that they are the same as on a caterham where they tighten in the direction that is forward motion. turns out assumptions are the mother of all fups.

Some vehicles do have reverse thread on the hub nut on one side, easy mistake if you are used to this. Or if you try and remove a wheel on an LDV Convoy, reverse thread on the nearside wheel nuts

Sounds like you may have to cut it off now...
