I live in Queensland. It has been 34 degrees Celsius for most of today (~94 degrees Fahrenheit). We do not have a road-salt problem in these parts. I'm not sure about the southern states.

It's the beach/sea salt here that causes corrosion.

Thanks for the comment about the axle. I was a bit concerned, not about the nut, but getting the axle to release from the splines of the hub. It looks like it has not been apart for 14 years, but is sounds like it's not going to be an issue. I'll find out next weekend.
