Hey guys.

When it comes to taking the back wheel off from my bmx, I can’t seem to get the both axle nuts off. For instance, I untighten one nut (i.e right side) the other nut (I.e left side) won’t untighten, the nut just keeps turning around no matter how much you try to untighten it , it just goes around and around, I think the nut is moving along with the/throughout the whole driver on to the other side. Any solutions to this, do you guys have this issue too?

Cheers guys.

Use grease next time. Tighten the right side and loosen the left side. After that it should go out. Just be sure nothing is stripped.

If you have two, try a spanner or wrench on each side at the same time.

Grease!!!! Metal touches metal, grease. It's a priority rule

If your axle has an allen hole on it, try using an allen key to keep it still.

If/when it happens, whichever nut you loosened first, retighten it & try removing the other side. Then go back & try the other (first) side again. If it spins, snug the other nut (not completely tight) & then try removing the other nut. Thought being that you are tightening just a bit to give everything a point to bite into but not enough to freeze it in place once the other side is loose.
