    Hoping you guys can help, I have an intermittent noise in my front right wheel at highway speeds (not tire related).
    So, I took everything off down to the brass looking spindle nut that has 6 slots. I can't get this thing off, it just turns and turns. I downloaded the F.S.M but it does not look like my setup. Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    The castle nut? Did it have a cotter pin in it?

    Try an impact gun.

    Not a castle nut, just a spindle nut with 6 indentions

    I'm sure yours is different than my 5 lug.... but nothing in there was tighter than hand tight and everything had cotter pins. Was there a pin in it?
