    I have an x type sport model 2003 jag

    this is the second winter where the tire blew out and even road assistance could not remove a stripped lug nut. Is there an inherent problem with these lug nuts to require towing 2x because they needed a high powered tool to remove them? i am not liking this scenario-2x in 2 years cannot be coincidental. The low profile tires are terrible

If you have all nuts off & don't see anything else, I'd bet money you have aluminum or similar rims (wheels) on it. With 2 disimilar metals making contact like they do, it usually causes them to corrode together, almost like they're welded. Try spraying some penetrating oil in by studs, and rotate tire to move it around a bit. In some cases I've had to get a good swing with a big rubber hammer ( to avoid damage to rim) from behind to break them loose, and even had some success with snugging nuts back up, then back them off a turn or 2, then lower vehicle so tires are back on the ground, and rock the car side to side pretty hard. Then jack it back up & try again. If car securely on jack & stands, or even better a hoist, sometimes you get away with a good swift heel to the tire from side to side. Good Luck, keep us posted.

Cannot remove stripped lug nuts.2006 Impala 3.9 V-6 aluminum alloy wheels.


Forget removing tire from its current position. Taking it off without the right tools is next to impossible and ............

Bang the lug nuts with a nice lump hammer to loosen up any corrosion. Then try heating the nuts with a torch, and with a good pair of vise grips and and an extension for them loosen the nuts to remove the rim.

How to remove front wheels of Acura 1996 3.2 TL


The large nut you see is most likely the axle retention nut.

It is NOT used to hold on the wheel.

The wheels on a 2000 Acura TL are secured to the wheel hub by 5 lug nuts.

If after removing the "lugs" the tire and wheel may be difficult to remove after a long period due to corrosion betweem the wheel and hub.

If this happens, tap the tire at opposite ends (like 12 and 6 o'clock) with a rubber or plastic mallet.

This should help to loosen the wheel so you can remove it.

I have a flat tire, but do not have the special tool to take off the bolt. Any ideas? 2010 Honda CRV


Most auto parts stores have Locking Lug Nut removal tools. If you know the size of your lug nut you may be able to buy a single tool that fits on a standard ratchet to remove the locking lug nut. If your lug nut is the type that spins without the proper tool to remove it, your best bet is a mechanic with the proper equipment to avoid doing damage to the wheel or stud.

Good luck!

How do i release the spare tire on my 2005 Kia Sedona


Hi, the spare tire is stored on the underside of the vehicle, under the right-side cargo door. The bolt is located in a recessed area that is protected by a small square plastic covering. To remove the spare tire, find and remove the bolt cover, then use your lug nut wrench to loosen the bolt holding the tire.
Remove the spare tire fastener's plastic cover, place the lug nut wrench onto the lug nut holding the tire onto the bolt, turn the wrench in a counter-clockwise direction until the tire is released and reaches the ground.

Having difficulty changing front drivers side tire on the Jaguar x type 2003. the tire is flat and we cannot seem to remove the tire


If all the lug nuts are removed and the tire will not come off it is frozen onto the hub. This is really common with aluminum wheels. If you can safely support the vehicle so that it will not fall off the jack you can try kicking the backside of the tire. This will work most of the time.

If that doesn't work put the lug nuts on till there just snug and then loosen them 3 or 4 turns. remove the jack and drive the vehicle back and forth until the wheel falls off the hub.

Everyone I work with as well as myself, have at least a four pound plastic deadblow hammer just to remove the wheels that this happens to.
