Not sure what you're referring to in the second part of your post.

From memory, it should be a 30mm double-hex socket.

To push the dint out, you'll need a narrow cold chisel. Bash it out as much as you can, doesn't need to be perfectly round, as undoing it will force it close to round again.

i wasnt too sure but i measured it to 36. anyway i had to drive a mate out to a mechanic to pick up his car so i got it done for 20 bucks and i supplied the nut. didnt expect it to be 6 dollars something but then again it was toyota.

ill give 30mm a try when I decide to change my rotors haha

thanks guys

why do u need to take off the axle nut when u change rotors? u only need to if u snapped a stud and need to replace it or change the bearing. to be completely honest, you should have changed the ones that had white corrosion near the start of the stud or just change all of them for peace of mind.

Bearings u just change when u need to. It's the studs that corrode over time. With the brake rotor, they are floating. So after taking the calipers off, u just yank it off.
