I made this today because after regarding the problem in another post, I just so happened to have to deal with a rusted axle! Speak of the devil and he will apear..

Anyway, this is a run down on how I get the stuck unstuck!

The Video link is at the bottom of the page.

Here is a very rusted axle nut.




I use the torch to heat up the ruted cotter pin to remove it. I only put the heat to it for aproximately 30 seconds.




This is the sxle/ wheel bearing press setup on the axle.






And finally, Here is the process that I recorded on to youtube. Rusted Axle Removal by Me

I hope this helps some of you out!

Thanks, excellent post, moving to How-To.



I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.
