The question is "why do you want to take it off?" Almost everyone I know who has fought that battle is trying to replace a disc rotor and you don't need to take the spindle nut off to remove the rotor on that car. If you're trying to remove the disc rotor, there are two screws on the face of the rotor between the studs for the wheel lug nuts that have to be removed to remove the rotor.If are trying to remove the spindle nut for some other reason then the reason you're having problems with the nut is that the factory torque spec on that nut is 181 lb/ft. Its a 24mm socket and the best way to get it off is by using an air gun that can generate that amount of torque to break it loose.if you don't have a air gun, use a 24 mm socket on a breaker bar and use a heavy steel pipe to extend the length of the breaker bar to give you the leverage you'll need to break the spindle nut loose. hope that answers your question

If you are replacing the axles or even the brake rotors on that car then YES you have to take off the spindle nut. You can attempt to use a breaker bar and place another bar between two of the wheel studs to prevent it from turning while you trying to get it off. The nut is 36 MM. Make sure that you completely unstake it from the notch in the axle. I dont even attempt to use a breaker bar on them, I simply use a 3/4 drive impact gun with a 36MM socket. On 90-97 accord the brake rotors are pressed into the wheel bearing and hub assembly. You can also try spraying it with some penetrating oil and let it sit for few minutes. You should also replace the the nut with a new one. If you are replacing the rotors, then this tool will help you http://www.try-intools.com/ they have a video and detailed instructions of how it is done.
