Trouble Removing Spindle Nut On Dexter 10K Axle


Ordered these brakes coming in today from etraiker. Having a problem backing the spindle nut off. All tabs are bent back. Looks like the guy in the video just takes a set of channel locks and easily removes it. Not the case here. Any suggestions?


Expert Reply:

Thank you for your purchase of the Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Dust Shields part # AKEBRK-10. In some cases, you can remove the spindle nut with a set of channel locks but in others you will need to use a socket and ratchet or even possible a breaker bar depending on how long the spindle nut has been on there. If you have access to a torch you can heat the nut up as that will help to remove it but otherwise you just need to use more force. For a new tang washer you can use part # 5-59.
