SOURCE: back rims are stuck on truck even with lugs loose

Wheels often sieze themselves onto the hubs, Best thing is to jack the car up , place it on an axle stand, and hit the wheel rim, from inside out, place a piece of ragon the rimwhere you will hit it, one firm followed through hit, with a sledge hammer, you will need to rotate the wheel each time you hit the rim. Once the wheel is off, do what you must and on refitting, clean the area of the hub and the wheel parts where they mate with a wire brush, ideally after that if you can get some copperslip or grease, smear some around the wheel rim inner part and the hub where they mate. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES use the grease on the wheel studs, nuts or bolts, as it can cause the wheel fixture (nut or bolt ) to undo and the wheel can fall off. Hope that helps

Removed lugnuts but a tire will not come off the vehicle . The parking break is off, but the rear wheel will not spin. I turned the ignition on and the parking break light was not on. I lifted the parking...

Your rear wheels are not spinning because they are the drive wheels (they're connected to the transmission). If your car is in park, or any gear you will not be able to spin them unless you're the Hulk.

Your rear wheels are not coming off (probably) because there is corrosion between the wheel and the hub. The easiest way to break it loose is to put the lugnuts back in about 3/4 of the way. Lower the car down so the jack is no longer supporting the car. It may come loose from the weight, or you may need to roll the car a few feet, that usually does the trick. Alternatively, while the car is jacked up and the lug nuts are off (parking break on, and jack stands secure, hit the wheel on the inside hard with a rubber mallet, sometimes that will work too (be sure you are not under the car when you do this incase it slips off your jack stand).

2005 equinox awd wont go into 4 wheel when the front tires break loose

Most new vehicles can kick in automatic but with that model the 4WD might have to be manually kicked in somewhere on the dash area. did you look at the links that have fuses in them you will have to refer to a manual with your model vehicle to find the links with fuses. Hope that helps

Vibrating on the passenger side at low speed fory honda 2003 crv

the most common reason for a vibration is most of the time due to a bad tire. check the tire and look for a bubble or what we call a hop in the tire, this is on the tread of the tire not the sidewall. a good way to do this would be on a lift, this will be hard for you unless you spot the bad tire otherwise the crv will need to be put on a lift and ran in drive as you watch the tires spin and look for a hop in the tire, your crv is 4wheel drive which means all wheeels spin so all tire must be off the ground when checking them. if the vibration is at low speed then the bad tire should be easy to find, this is where i would start first, with tire checking, alsomake sure tire pressure are correct, at around 32psi. good day.

Is there a locko the front wheel. Was trying to change tire, got the nuts off, but the wheel would not move forward.

Try hitting the inside of the tire with a hammer. the bigger the better. What happens is the wheel will rust if steel or corrode if aluminum an bind up on the lip of the hub. Thats the part that sticks through the very center of wheel. If you can safely do it you can also try to kick the inside of the tire with your foot. I wouldn't try it unless the vehicle was supported by at least a jack stand an jack.

If all else fail you can put the lug nuts on loosely, lower the car, and drive it back and forth slowly until the wheel "falls" off. Then you can jack it up and finish changing the tire.

How to remove stuck tires and rims off rear of 2001 f 250.

Greetings: My 97 F 250 has the aluminum wheels. The Aluminum of the rims actually becomes welded to the steel hubs after some time. I have beat on those things with various types of hammers and blocks. I've put a 6' length of 2" pipe between the shackles and wheel in an attempt to pry it of. Tires just absorb all the energy. After hours of frustration I figured out that a standard digging bar will fit between the drum and the wheel. It is tight, but it will fit. Popped both rims off in just a couple of minutes this way. Pry it till it moves, spin the wheel a bit and pry again. You will have to work it all the way around the wheel, but it will come off.

Wheel stuck on hub won't come off.

That kind of thing happens a lot and I work in a auto-shop. The corrosion builds up on the hub and swells up in the middle of the rim. 1. Put all lugnuts back on, leave them half way off. 2.Keep kicking the tire from the backside until it pops off the hub. Don't worry, you can't damage the rim by kicking it yourself. (Unless your the incredible ) The lugnuts will keep the tire from falling on the brake components when it comes off the hub.
