Re: Can't get flat tyre off BMW 530D 2003 model
Try spraying the lug holes with a lubricant and being very careful with the care properly supported slowly turn the wheel while hitting the back of the tire with a small sledge style hard rubber mallet. This should break the bond between rim and the face of the brake rotor.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

place the hand brake on firmly--chock other wheels . loosen off the wheel nuts . jack the vehicle up finish removing the wheel nuts . pull the wheel of the studs . fit replacement spare wheel onto studs . do wheel nuts up as tight as possible . lower jack so that the wheel is on the ground . finish tightening the wheel nuts . Replace the jack and wrench in the boot along with the flat tyre . Take the flat tyre to a tyre shop for a puncture repair and have it fixed immediately. Most "people" leave the repair to a later time when they will need a spare that they do not have .The tyre change process is fully described in the owners hand book for your vehicle.
if it is required to be removed to reomve the tire then there should be a wrench in the tool kit for replacin the tire, in most cases you only need to remove this bolt if you need to get to the wheel bearings so you should only need to remove the outer bolts on the tire. once you get it off to remove the pads simply remove the two bolts from the back side of the calipers and then lift up, be sure to check the thickness of your rotors and drums (if any) if they look to thin you will need to replace them when you replace the pads. if you need to replace the rotors then you will need to reomve the bearing nut, and keep in mind that if the bearings are worn you should replace them at the same time too, it is eaisier and saves you money from having to replace more parts with it later down the road.
block wheel on opposing side to avoid rolling.loosen lug bolts on wheel using lug wrench. donot completely remove nuts. place jack at designated position on side of car. diagram should be on spare cover in trunk under carpet along with the appropriate tools.raise vehicle with jack just high enough to clear ground. remove nuts and flat tire and replace with spare. tightened lug nuts and lower jack. check nuts again for tightness.
Check all your tyre pressures,if they are all correct press the tyre pressure reset button if you are unsure which button to press consult your handbook.if problems still persist you should get a diagnostic check.
Hi tim to adjust the parking brake shoe is take off one wheel bolt and turn it untill you see the parking brake ajuster ( look like a gear) use torch and flat screw driver. first tight the adjuster untill you cant turn the wheel then undo it for atleast 8 notches
This is because of corrosion, first jack up the vehicle and place it on secure axle stands, make sure it is safe!!!!!!!!! remove wheel nuts, find a block of wood and a large hammer. Plkace the wood on the back of the wheel hit the wood hard, turn the wheel and repeat, this will remove the wheel. do not hit the wheel directly, this will damage the wheel.
