You need a jack to lift the vehicle high enough to get the tire off and the new one on, you need a lug wrench to loosen and tighten the lug nuts and depending on the rims you might have hub caps that are part of the rim or seperate and if they are seperate, you need something to pry them off with. So the proper way to do this is:
Before you raise it with the jack, take the lug wrench and loosen the lug nuts a little. This is easier when the tire is on the ground because depending on the tire location, it will turn if you lift it. So when the weight is on it, it wont turn. Then you put the jach under the car and near the tire you are lifting and you use the jack to raise the tire. Then finish taking the lug nuts off. Remove the tire and put the new tire on. You may have to raise the jack some more to make it high enough. Put the lug nuts back on tight as you can and lower the car. Then tighten the lug nuts again to be sure. You should tighten lug nuts by skipping them. In other words start with one and tighten it, skip the next one and tighten the third one. When you go all the way around, go to the ones you skipped and tighten those.
On some vehicles you may need to slightly pry the hub off. This can be done with a screw driver or the vehicle may have a lug wrench that came with the vehicle. If you are trying to replace the lug studs, then you will have to take the wheel off. Tap the broken stud out and replace it with the new one.
take off tire. remove old stud by hammering it out with a punch. put a socket behind axle plate so as not to break the plate. when replacing, just start stud from back by hand, then use a lug nut to pull it in tight. when tight replace tire!
#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.
it seized on the hub is all. lay on side, kick with the back of you heel without laying under vehicle. thread on a lug a few turns so it doesnt take off. be carful! make sure its hoisted safely with a block or stand for back up
