    yes, drive it over to a shop and have them use the air compressor tools on it, then tighten them back some and go back home.

    you cant get the 32 mm nut off..?? hmm..

    take off the wheel..
    knock out the fastener.. put a dookie on..
    then put the 32mm socket on it and use a breaker bar.. =)

    with the axle it self.. i used the pryer side of a hammer.. =)

    easy way to do it.

    Unstake
    Pop center cap off wheel
    Put wheel on
    Lower car
    place breaker bar on the bolt (and cheater bar if you have one) at just passed then 3 oclock (thats if your on the driver side)
    Get a floor jack, and use the cars weight to push on the breaker bar (may need to hold brakes)


    If it doesn't come off, your have problems

    Remember phsyics. Trq = radius x Force. you can apply 100lbs let say, and you have a 1 ft breaker bar. Your only applying 100 ftlbs to that bolt, Now lets say you have a 10ft breaker bar with cheater bar, and you apply the same 100lb force. Your now applying 1,000 ftlbs to that nut.
