*Hold the left side of the axle from spinning*  after i remove the coter, while loosening the castle nut, will the whole axle spin? Do i need to hold the left side?

As far as the rear wheel, is it necessary to hold the left side when loosening the castle nut?

TYIA :)

I just changed my rear tire and, no I did not have to hold anything on the left side to loosen the castle nut

You may not "Need" to hold the axle when removing the Castle Nut but you will need to hold it when re-torqueing it. Don't just get it "Tight enough" use a good torque wrench.

Use a 14mm bolt hex head with some nuts to use as hex wrench if your in a pinch
