Remove and replace lug bolts on my 2001odysey


Jason, im guessing you old ones are either broken or stripped. It will really depend on how long the bolts are.
You can take a punch and hammer, drive out the old ones. If the new ones aren't to long you can slip the new ones in from the back of the hub.
If you are able to slip them in, you can place one of the lug nuts on the stud ( backwards) and proceed to tighten the lug nut until the new bolt completely seats against the hub.
The reason you place the lug nuts backwards is so you don't damage the chamfer,tapered end of the lug nut.

Get back to me if you have any other questions, Robert

If you mean the bolts that hold the back-plate, tighten to 35 ftlbs. If you mean the hub nut that hold the bearing assembly, tighten till firm, then back off the nut and tighten till there is no play in the bearing assembly. Do this with the wheel on. Now use the ca adjustment. Put the cap on and you are done.ge and split pin to hold the

I've got all the wheel nuts incl locking nut off my Golf back wheel, but can't get the wheel off, what am I doing wrong?


At a guess, you've got alloy wheels, assuming so, this is a common problem.

1) Make sure its on an axle stand, not just a scissor jack, and give the inside of the wheel a good old whack with a mallet, if you don't have a rubber hammer/mallet. Hold a piece of wood against the wheel and hit that.

or

2) Put the wheel nuts back on, just finger tight, then roll the car backwards and forwards, with luck the weight of the car should do the work for you.

When you put you wheel back on, put some copper grease on the hub to stop it sticking again.

I am wanting to replace the rear wheel studs that are broken. The wheel hub flange won't come off. Is there a special puller for this, do I need to apply more force or is there another method for removal?


You do not remove the wheel hub flange, just follow the procedure that I replied to earlier, and this is the procedure if you do not want to obtain a special tool for pressing the lug studs;

First you will have to pound the broken lug studs out of the wheel hub, then you will need a lug nut and about a half an inch thick of flat washers.

1. Insert the new lug stud through the wheel hub from behind so that the threaded end is facing out towards you and then put some grease on the threads.

2. Then slip the flat washers onto the lug stud followed by the lug nut, and run the lug nut down to take up the slack.

3. Then using a breaker bar tighten the lug nut until it pulls the lug stud through the wheel hub and it is flush with the wheel hub.

Be sure that the amount of flat washers used will make up for any non-threaded part of the lug stud that might stick out past the wheel hub preventing the lug nut from pulling the lug stud all the way through the wheel hub, and basically you do not want the lug nut to run out of threads before it can pull the lug stud flush with the wheel hub.

Back rims are stuck on truck even with lugs loose and truck jacked off ground. I tried putting one lug back on loose and kicking tire and tried putting it in 4L and neither trick worked. Seems like they...


Wheels often sieze themselves onto the hubs, Best thing is to jack the car up , place it on an axle stand, and hit the wheel rim, from inside out, place a piece of ragon the rimwhere you will hit it, one firm followed through hit, with a sledge hammer, you will need to rotate the wheel each time you hit the rim. Once the wheel is off, do what you must and on refitting, clean the area of the hub and the wheel parts where they mate with a wire brush, ideally after that if you can get some copperslip or grease, smear some around the wheel rim inner part and the hub where they mate. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES use the grease on the wheel studs, nuts or bolts, as it can cause the wheel fixture (nut or bolt ) to undo and the wheel can fall off. Hope that helps
