These are called Torx bolts/nuts and they are intended to prevent theft, any store like Sears will carry the Torx (also called star) line of sockets, they are also available on line from different tool outlets, Carquest and Napa auto parts should have them too.

Flat tire


your owners manual is a valuable source of information, but if you do not have it here is what you do: the vehicle should be on a flat hard surface then you need to locate your jack and lug wrench , with the vehicle still on the groung loosen each lug nut about one turn then make sure that your emergency break is on, place the jack under the vehicle in an appropreate spot to raise the wheel off the groung, once the wheel is off the ground you can remove the lug nuts and pull the wheel off. Then you can put the spare tire on and replace the lug nuts tighten them in a criss cross patern as tight as you can get them then lower the vehicle back to the ground and check the lugs again. I hope this helps, good luck !!

Flat tire on my 1983 mercury cougar


#1 Look carefully at the CENTER of the hub cap. Gently pry the center cap off. The rest will be self explanatory.
Or
#2 Take one lug nut off . Sometimes there is an extra set of small lugs to hold the hub cap on.
I do apologize for the two choices. Just cannot remember which way the Cougar works.

Is there a special tool needed to take off the hub cap or is it just a regular one?


Hi :

Mercury sables had a couple different styles of wheels/ wheel covers, so basically if you have an alloy wheel with a center cap, you can remove that with a wide bladed screw driver in the slot that is on the edge. Same goes if your car has a full wheel cover. You can either use the flat tip of your tire lug nut wrench, or a very large screwdriver to pry it off of the wheel

How do I remove the center lug on wheel?


On our Mazda3 the special lug removal tool was in the glove box in a blister pack with spare lugs. After having the car serviced the tool dissapeared and after searching I found it in the lug removal vrench where the dealership mechanic left it. Hope this helps. Alex

Change a flat tire


The wheel is just rusted on the hub. Just take a rubber mallet and hit a few times. Or kick it a few times. This is a very common thing.
