Having problems with your 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue ?
2000 olds intrigue, changing the front wheel bearings on a 3.5 litre, don,t know the torgue ft pound for the nut on the spindle on either end of wheels, also why is it so dam hard to spin the nut off and to break it loose, tried spray lube on it and heated the nut and shaft but it will not budge ??
Well the nut is a lock nut. Your not really supposed to reuse it, and after years of use its probably a little rusty. I would have someone stand on the brake pedal while you use a 1/2" drive breaker bar and a piece of pipe for leverage to loosen them. Do not use a impact gun unless you have to, it may damage the CV joint. If you do have to, make sure someone is holding the pedal down well. It will come off, remember counter clockwise loosens it. As for torque it should be about 184ft.lbs or 250Nm. Good luck! I hope this helps.
