Socket size? ......

For the front axle nut on a 2001 748? A 1 1/8" is too loose, does anyone know the correct metric size?

1 and 1/8 inches equals 28.575 mm (25.4 mm = 1") so a 28mm or 27mm socket would likely be correct if 1 1/8" fit's loosely.

Measure across the flats, if its 2.8cm, then its a 28mm. I had to buy one for a bolt or two on my truck and it was a pain and a half to find a 28mm. I had to order one from my Mac tool guy and it was $20. Good luck
