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.

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

2002 Montero Sport removing the rear passenger tire has a flat


Hi,

Changing the wheel/tire on this vehicle is not significantly different from any other car or truck.

You will need to first pop off the center cap if you have one so that you have a clear shot at the wheel lugs.
Use your tire iron or a 21mm socket and breaker bar to loosen all lug nuts 1-2 turns.
Place your jack under the vehicle.... if you are using a scissor jack you can use the pinch weld of the body just forward of the rear wheel (the vertical stamped metal rib), or if you have a bottle jack or floor jack you can also lift from the front of the trailing arm or directly below the axle behind the wheel.
Once the wheel is off the ground, remove the lug nuts the rest of the way.

At this point the wheel should come off. If it is frozen on the truck from age/rust, you can use a rubber mallet to strike the back side of the sidewall to help jar it loose. If you do not have a mallet you can kick the inside side wall with your foot, however you do not want to do this if you are using a scissor jack or if you are on uneven ground, so as to avoid knocking the truck off the jack.

With the wheel off you can take it to a shop for dismounting/replacement of the tire; this can not be done without special equipment.

Place the repaired wheel/tire or spare on the truck and tighten the lug nuts finger tight so that the wheel is flush (not tilting).
Lower the jack and remove it.
Use your tire iron or 21mm socket and breaker bar to tighten the lug nuts the rest of the way.

If you are using a spare tire, the tail gate mounted spare is removed by simply taking off the lug nuts holding it on; The under-mounted spare is lowered to the ground by unscrewing the 21mm nut located under the cargo cover in the rear center of the truck. This nut operates a winch which will lower the tire to the ground when turned anti clockwise, and draws it back up to the truck when turned clockwise.

Change tire


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.

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!

When changing the front tire does the center nut need to be removed along with the lug nuts? if so, how?


Only the four wheel lug nuts need to be removed to get the rim and tire off the car. That large center nut holds in the front axle shaft.

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.
