Depending on which style of nut you're talking about, it takes up to ~200 lb-ft to install, so a little more to remove it. Get a LONG 1/2" breaker bar.

But if it's a big hex nut with rounded corners, there's a tiny clip that slides straight out, and then you can back the nut off with a pocket screwdriver.

Click my signature link & read the captions in the Brakes & Hubs album.

theres also a large c clip closer to the outside of the hub it is very easy to miss seeing that its covered in grease (on some models)
