SOURCE: change a flat tire

The wheel is just rusted on the hub. Just take a rubber mallet and hit a few times. Or kick it a few times. This is a very common thing.

use 3lb sledge on inner edge of rim be careful not to damage rim rubber mallet won't provide enough shock to loosen rust. ps leave one lug nut on so tire won't fly off.

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".

spray pentrating oil around where wheel meets hub and also around lug bolts let set for about 15 min then take a sledge hammer and hit from underneath make sure the truck is blocked up good for safty
if that doesnt work take a small sissor jack between the rim and the fram and put a lot of pressure on it then hit it with the sledge from underneath

Cant get the tire off and i have taken all the lug s off


I have had this happen before on my nissan, after removing all lugs it was still stuck on After spraying around the center of the wheel where the axle nut is with PB Blaster a penetrating oil, and hitting it a few times with a hammer as unorthodox as that sounds it flopped right off. It is more common on rear wheels then front for no apparent reason. Hope that helps.

How do I remove a hubcap from a 2008 Chevy Cobalt. Do I need to remove all of the lug nuts or the center cap?


most hubcaps are springclip loaded! some are mounted inside the center cap! some are held on by the lug nuts! pull the center cap first, and look for a screw that holds it on! if not, then remove the lug nuts!

Flat tire on my 1983 mercury cougar


#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.

Cant get lug nuts off=is cover attached at lug nuts or does it come off first


Is your car the one in the pic,or what style of wheel do you have on it if its the one in the pic then the center cap is a pop in style and will just take a flat screw driver to pop off there will be a notch to insert the blade of the screw driver in between the wheel and the cap just insert and twist cap should pop off.

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.
