jack up vehicle, remove tire, Beat on broken lug till it falls out- install new lugnut (will be pressure fit) replace tire and tighten nut....make sure you tighten it 2 times at first then after 50 miles check it again.
I was on vacation and really did not have any tools with me. My car was operated in the Rustbelt and I usually oil the wheel studs at rotation time. But this time the car sat in the garage all Winter and I put miles on my 4x4 instead.
I had a flat on my car during my Spring vacation and took off the lugnuts to change the tire and the wheel would not come off. I put several lugbolts back on and tried dropping the weight of the car on the tire. Still stuck. Then I put a Fixaflat solution into the tire and it still was too low to drive and leaking. I went over curbs, off curbs and then removed the lugnuts after jacking up the car again. Still stuck.
I looked in my trunk for good ole "WD". There was none. All I could find was a spray can of "Cutter Insect Repellant". I sprayed the insect repellant around the wheel and one tap and the wheel fell off. So not only is Cutter a decent insect repellant, but it also removes rusted parts.
Nothing. The rotor is held on by being sandwiched between the wheel and the hub. You slide it (the brake rotor) over the studs and mount the caliper over the rotor. Then fasten the caliper to its attach points. When you mount the tire/wheel and tighten the lugnuts this prevents the rotor from coming off. Get yourself to the local library, and checkout the automotive repair manual for your make and model of car. Run through the steps for removing/replacing the brake rotor. Verify you did all the steps correctly!! Good luck.
The easiest way to do it is to remove the coil pack and the alternator.That will provide plenty of access to the rear 3 plugs.With the alt out of the way you can reach through where it was mounted same with the coil pack.Don't just remove the coils unbolt the mounting bracket and remove all 3 coils together.
remove tire...if it has disc brakes remove caliper/pads and rotor...if it has a drum break remove drum..Now take a punch and hammer and hit the center of the lugnut stud untill it pops out the back.put the new one in and get it tight with the lugnut.Replace brakes and tire and tighten that lugnut until it stops.Then check it in 500 miles
Grand Ams don't use a proportioning valve. The rear brake lines should split above the rear trailing axle and go to each wheel. They have rubber flex lines that attach to the metal brake lines, but I'm not sure what valve you are talking about, or exactly where.
Find a plastic cover located in the carpet at the back right corner. Lift the cover to locate a nut the size of a lugnut of your tires. Using the van's lugnut wrench, turn nut counter-clockwise to lower the spare tire. Have fun and don't pinch yourself while removing the tire.
sensor might be dirty, try removing them and cleaning them. Dont use sprays as they pose a threat more than they fix. Check tires to see if there is one that might be WAY lower than the rest. Or consider taking it to a shop if you cant find the rigth abs sensor.
remove all brake components off of that side, pound out studs towards center of the car with a hammer. place the new studs through the back of the axle and then use washers that just fit over the studs for spacers, and put the lugnut on the stud and tighten until the new stud is seated on the back flange of the axle. remove the lugnut and repeat for the rest of the studs.
