Hub nut size?



Can anybody tell me the size of the hub nuts on our cars? I've got a wheel bearing to do and havent got a deep enough socket to get over the end of the driveshaft to the nut. :evil:

Yep you'll need a deep 32mm socket.
Why there's so much extra unused thread sticking out I don't know. :evil:

just do what i did when i realised my socket wasnt long enough
cut off the end of the thread
If you mean off the cv joint, then make sure you clean up the thread when you've cut it down, so that it doesn't damage the thread on the nut when you take it off/put it back on. :wink:
