Ok, I've bee sarching through the forums to try to find an answer, but i haven't been able to find anything. I have a 2000 ZX3 and I am trying to replace the bearing and hub for the front right wheel. Tried to remove the hub nut, but it just keeps spinning in place. It wont move forwards or backwards i.e. i cant tighten it and then loosen it again. Is there something I am missing to remove this laminated nut, or is it just stripped. Any suggtestions would be great. Thanks

I found out that it really was stripped. I brought my car to a dealership a month ago, and they stripped it replacing the inner bearing. Gonna call them and hopefully they will repair the damages.

It's most likely just the nut that is stripped since the spindle is super hard metal. I do seem to remember that you had to replace that nut once you loosen it. PM Mike at Hilbish, maybe he can give you some documentation so that the repair shop will be forced to fix their screw up.
