[DML] Re: Righty Tighty, Lefty Loosey Right?



Looking at the nut, it loosens as you turn it left, i.e. lefty 
loosey.

There is a way to get it off without an impact wrench.  With a good, 
solid wrench on the nut, use a hydralic jack on the end of the 
wrench and it will work perfectly.  That's what I did to get mine 
off.

Good luck, this is a pretty straightforward project once you get 
that nut loosened!
