These suggestions are all good. Please note that you do not necessarily have to have dissimilar metals to do this. I had a similar problem with a steel brake rotor on a steel hub. I would be extremely cautious about driving and steering with loose lug nuts. I use a variety of hard plastic and hard rubber mallets to deal with this problem. Once apart, use a wire wheel on an electric drill to remove accumulated crud from the hub. Be cautious using a wire wheel on the center of the aluminum wheel. When reassembling, on that problem with the rotors, I applied a thin coat of Permatex Anti-Sieze on the contact surfaces. This is the same stuff I started using when putting headbolts on aluminum engine blocks to deal with galling of the threads, and now use it as a general thread lubricant. Using a thin coat of this product on the hub where the wheel goes on the hub will deal with this problem in the same manner that it deals with galling in aluminum blocks. Just don't use so much of it that it ends up on the brake rotors. This is the same product you should be using on the lug nuts before you cinch them down.

Hi J, We have had similar problems with a number of vehicles. The solution is highly technical and can take more than fifteen minutes of concentrated applied and focused work. After removing the lug nuts, sit down adjacent to the offending wheel and with arms stretched behind and hands spread on ground, apply force, alternatively using one lower limb after the other very quickly and with sudden application. The use of special tools is highly recommended. These come in a variety of sizes, the most common being sizes seven, eight or nine! The best type for the job are called safety boots. Once fitted, they can be applied multiple times in very quick secession, they usually do the trick....In other words we put in the boot! regards John

SOURCE: Tire Change on 2006 Ford Explorer

Kick the tire. Not only will it make him feel better, but it should come off. The center of the wheel is probably a tight fit where it fits on the 'hub' (where the brakes and wheel bearings are located. Kick the tire near the outer edge, continue all around 'til it comes off. Please let me know how you make out. countrycurt0

SOURCE: Removed all the lug nuts

The wheel is corroded to the hub/brake rotor face, u will have to get a can of WD 40 and soak it overnight and just keep working it until it free's up, no other way to do it that I know of.

SOURCE: broke off lug nut while changing a rear tire

You will have to remove the brake drum or rotor if it has disc brakes and drive the broken lug out of the drum or rotor. Purchase a new lug from any auto parts store buying the exact same size and drive the new one in. Reinstall the tire/wheel and torque the lug nuts to 100 lb/ft with a torque wrench.

If you first jack up the right side with wheel chocks in place and set in park, and take off all of the lugnuts, sometimes the wheel gets stuck to the hub, in the middle, requiring a heavy hammer or heavy piece of metal shaft to hit the wheel at the 6 o'clock position from behind the wheel to dislodge it.

This is a common problem.

Tire sensor fault on our 2006 Ford Explorer after new tires


2006 Ford Truck Explorer
NOTE: The tire pressure sensor training prcedure must be done in an area without radio frequency (RF) noise. RF noise is generated by electrical motor and appliance operation, cell phones, and remote transmitters.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position
2. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait more than two minutes between each key cycle.
3. Press and release the brake pedal
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

Sequence:
1- Left Front Tire
2- Right Front Tire
3- Right Rear Tire
4- Left Rear Tire


5. Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait for more than two minutes between each key cycle.
6. The horn will sound once and the TPMS indicator will flash if train mode has been entered successfully. If equipped, the message center displays "TRAIN LEFT FRONT TIRE." Place the magnet on the valve stem of the LF tire pressure sensor. The horn will sound briefly to indicate that the tire pressure sensor has been recognized by the TPMS module.
7.Within two minutes after the horn sounds, place the magnet on the valve stem of the RF tire pressure sensor. NOTE: If the TPMS module does not recognize any one of the four tire pressure sensors during the tire training procedure, the horn will sound twice and the message center (if equipped) will display "TIRE TRAINING MODE INCOMPLETE." If this occurs, the entire procedure must be repeated from Step 1.
8. Repeat Step 7 for the RR and LR tires. When the tire training procedure is complete, the horn will sound once and the message center (if equipped) will display TIRE TRAINING MODE COMPLETE.

This should help. For now, probably all Fords are like this. And I do not believe that Ford puts sensors in their spares (some GMs do).
Good luck
