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

I have an 04 xj8. the lug nuts are a good bad example of half baked engineering. the lug nuts are fabricated from ugly steel with an 11/16 hex end. to beautify this, Jaguar overlays the nut end with a stainless steel 3/4 inch cap, crimped to the nut. On top of this, the nut is to be torqued to 90+ ft-lb! The only way to remove the lug nut without damage is with a SIX POINT socket and a breaker bar or an impact wrench. Using a 12 point socket will deform the cap, causing the wrench to spin on the cap and or the cap to spin on the nut itself. If that has happened, it is possible to recover using a 15 oz or thereabouts ball peen hammer and a deep 3/4 inch impact socket (the black ones). Line up the socket to the cap, doing a best guess to where the flats are and give the socket a light blow. Keep trying that until the socket seems to stick on, then hit it harder. Eventually you will find the right point and the socket will go on and reform the cap. Then a breaker bar can remove the cap/nut. New assemblies can be had for about $6 from "partsbin" or "autohausaz".

SOURCE: took off lug nuts,popped center cap, tire wont

if you have alloy wheels, it is common that there is a reaction with the alloy and cast metal , causing the wheel to really stick tight to the hub. You need to knock the wheel off with a big hammer, possibly a sledge hammer. Hit it from the inside on the rim, this should brake the bond and you should be able to remove the wheel. Please do this in a safe manner, use an axle stand to support the car. once the wheel is off, do what you must and when refitting, clean the hub area where the wheel sits and use a smear of copper slip or vaseline or grease , to stop the same thing happening again. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES put any grease on the wheel studs/nuts or bolts
Hope this helps

The plastic tool you have removes the hub cap. There is a metal end on the one side of the tool to remove the center cap. Pry it off. Then the tool will fit in to the plastic nut that holds the hub cap on.

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.

I have a flat tire and i can't get the plastic silver face plate off how do i get it off without breaking it?


if your talking about the chrome plated hub caps, you can use a 3/4" socket with a short extension to unsrew the black plastic nut covers off turning them counterclockwise until they're loose then pull the wheel coves off. When you screw the plastic nut covers on tighten by hand until they're snug don't over tighten them you can srtip the plastic threads (note: the actual lug steel lug nuts are under the wheel covers make sure you tighten them good )

2006 z71 ext.cab 5.3ltr. has a loose marble sound coming from passenger side front wheel.


It may just be a stone that got inside the wheel and hasnt gotten tossed out. It could also be a loose lug nut. A good visual inspection should be able to find the problem. One thing to note, the black plastic caps that hold your hub cap on are not your lug nuts! They screw onto your lug nuts, so to see the lug nuts you'll need to unscrew these caps.

I can't get my hubcaps off!


There are three basic kind:
1 has a center cap that hides the lug nuts beneath the cap.These usually have a small slot in them to allow a flat head screwdriver to be inserted in them and pop the cover off which is retained be tension created by metal prongs.

2 There is also a type that has plastic decorative lugs that screw over the actual metal lug nuts. In this case just unscrew all visible lugs and the cover will come off exposing the actual rim and metal lug nuts.

3 This is the oldest style that has now lug nuts present and is held on by tension like example one except that the prongs holding this one on is along the outer perimeter of the cap. To remove this type you insert a flat head screw driver between the hubcap and the actual steel rim and pry off working around the perimeter of the cap as you go. Replacement of this hub cap requires force to be applied at the perimeter as application to the center will either not complete the process or more than not result in a broken hubcap.

Hope this helps.
