Hub nut come loose 3 times ..help
Hi guys I'm stumped and would love some ideas to what I'm doing wrong
I've just changed the front bearing and the hub nut has one loose three times
Every time I have tightened it as much as is possible with standing on the breaker bar and it goes solid but after 6 miles or so it's loose !!! But the nut can't be opening as I smashed the edge of it into the key slot on the drive shaft ....
Question, could the drive shaft stretch? By over tightening hub bolt?
The odd thing is I changed the bearing 18 months ago and all was fine untill the hub nut came loose trashing the Los bearing henc the change. Or could the cv be gone in some way stopping it from being fully tightened?
Hope you have some ideas many thanks
P.s I'm going to try tightening the not with a 4 foot bar that way I know it will be tight?!?!
