Question about 1994 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

1994 Jaguar XJ6

I have a flat tire and proceeded to change it....I removed all 5 of the lug nuts from the back driver side tire but it appears there is a stock tire lock that was behind the jaguar emblem. I tried all of my allen wrenches to loosen the screw that sits on top of one last nut that will obviously free the tire but none of them work. Is there a special wrench to loosen the tire so that i can change it or am i missing something?

Yes it is a wheel lock, you need the tool or an air impact gun to get it off.

SOURCE: Is there locking bolt to remove wheel on jaguar X Type 3.0

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.

SOURCE: Can not remove lug nut caps 2003 x -type jaguar

I have a 2000 XK8 and the same lousey lugs with the thin chrome overlay cover. I simply cut the chrome covers off and found the right socket that fit the interior steel lug and was able to remove it. The reason the design stinks is because the steel under the chrome overlay rusts then naturally expands and prevents a normal lug socket to be placed onto it for removal. Look around on EBAY just type jag lugnuts for your model and get your aftermarket lugs at a tenth of the price for the whole set! Otherwise you will be stuck out there findin g it impossible to do a emergency tire change.

find one size down socket and extension bar then use hammer carefully but firmly to bray onto lug nut once on use ratchet with a piece of pipe placed over topof ratchet handle for extra leverage and should crack off if not u can buy extraction kit from motorspares shop or you could hit top of nut with chisel to score then take normal wheelnut thread on backwards ie flat edge first ov er-tighten then slacken this should cause it to get a bite of lugnut and loosen both hope this helps

How do I change a tire on a 2001 town and country


Open the hatch back. On the left-hand side is a panel that you can open in which the jack resides. Take that out.

(If you want to use the spare tire, located under the trunk space...)
You will see a plastic disc on the floor of the trunk space (where you store your luggage/groceries/etc). With a flat head screw driver pop the flat disc up & off. This will reveal a nut that you can turn to lower/release the spare tire that is directly underneath it.

If your T&C is like mine, you have a plastic cover in the middle of each alloy wheel that covers the lug nuts. This plastic cover can be popped off with the flat/nubby end of the crow bar that comes with the jack. It fits perfectly into a slot on the plastic cover.

Once you get the plastic cover off, the 5 lug nuts are revealed to you. Before you jack up the van, even a little, I would try to loosen all 5 lug nuts, just a bit...to get them going. Once the van is jacked up, it will be difficult to begin to loosen the lug nuts.

With the nuts loosened, set up the jack so that once you begin to turn it, the slot in the jack fits right into the frame of the van. You will see the frame that fits the slot in the jack between the front tires and back tires, on either side of the van.

Once the tire you want to change is fully lifted off of the ground, loosen the rest of the lug nuts and remove the tire. Replace it and reverse the order of what you just did. Get the 5 lug nuts onto the new tire, but only snug them up by hand. Once the tire touches the ground as the jack is lowered, then you can fully tighten the lug nuts with the crowbar.

Hope that helps!

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.

How do you change a tire on a honda crv? I need to get the tire off the back door and change the driver side front tire. Where does the jack go?


The owners manual shows where to put the jack. I no manual sometimes there are illustrations where the jack is stored in its compartment. First loosen the lug nuts before you jack up the vehicle, prevents the tire from turning. After jacking up the vehicle finish removing the lug nuts then remove the tire. The spare tire on the door may have a locking lug nut which requires a key to unlock before removing the lug nuts. Key us usually on the ignition key ring. Remove the lug nuts and put tire on the drivers side. Tighten up the nuts on the wheel and after the car is let down from the jack, finish tightening the lug nuts.

Sheared front lug


First remove wheel from car. Next take large hammer and drive whats left of lug out, you may need to use a punch if sheared off below hub hight. Now insert new lug stud in from back side of hub and use a open style lug nut (like those you see on old cars without nice wheels) and put on upside down, flat side towards hub. tighten up by hand then use socket to tighten down untill stud is pulled in all the way. In some cases you may need to use a few washes under nut to give enough room for shank on stud.

I can't removing rear tire


The outside cover? Can you see the lug nuts? If it is just the outside cover just use a tire iron or crowbar and gent;y pry it off. If you can see lug nuts then proceed and take em off, following safety procedures.

I own a 2002 jaguar x-type and i need to know the lug nut or wheel nut size


I believe the size is the measurement from any of the flat sides of the lug nut across to a flat side directly across from it. So to make it easy to measure, just remove one, and I assume it would be measured as metric. An easier way would be what size metric socket fits the lug nuts? That would be the nut size.
