Question about 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara

2 Answers

Trying to change brakes on 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara for the first time. I took off the 5 lug nuts but there is some kind of nut in the center of the wheel that will not allow me to remove the wheel. This is the first time I have encountered this. How do I remove this extra nut? It is not the same size of the lugnuts nor is it hexagonal in shape.

If is two threaded holes you are talking about...all you got to do is insert a screw that fits in the holes and thread it in, as the screw is going in it will be pushing it out to give you access to the brakes

How to change tire on 2006 Toyota Solara? All 5 lug nuts are removed. Is there a center nut? I believe the rims are a special alloy type.


How many miles...and how cold is it? Many times in bad weather and with mileage, the wheel hub sticks to the rotor...Be sure your jack stands are supported...but you may need to kick, or hit the inside of the tire you are trying to remove...enough of a jolt should loosen the stuck condition...Be sure to lubricate and clean off the inside of the wheel at the contact circle...Hope this helps.

2006 1.6 grand vitara front pads ready for renewal.wheels appear to be stuck to discs after wheel nuts removed.


if the brake pads were worn enough or if the caliper was stuck then it would have generated enormous amounts of heat, causing the wheel the stick to the rotor. when I have had this problem I put the lug nuts back on the lugs 2 or 3 turns and tap on them with a hammer, this usually breaks the wheel loose.

Good Afternoon. I am changing a tire on a 2006 Durango. I have loosened the lug nuts, jacked it up and then took off the lug nuts completely. The tire is still firmly in place and will not come off. Am I...


The tire may need a good kick to loosen the rusted/corroded bond to the axle, usually in the center section. Light sanding and a film of grease to the area after the wheel is off will help future removal.

I have a 95 Chevy suburban and I am trying to change the rotor and can not get it off. The lugs are attached to the rotor and not sure what I should do


Removing: Loosen lug nuts (7/8") and spindle nut (36mm). Lift truck. Remove lug nuts, spindle nut, and wheel. Remove 2 bolts (3/8" allen) holding calipers on. Hold the calipers up with a bungee cord. I attached it to the sheet metal of the fender. Remove 4 bolts (15mm) from rear of hubs. Once these bolts are removed you can move the shield that is in-between the hub and the axle(I think). You are moving it to get access to the allen bolt that holds the ABS sensor on. Once you move the shield then you can look through the top of the rotor through the slots and see the sensor line and bolt. I don't remember what size allen this one took. You do need a long allen wrench though. Disconnect sensing line from hub. Now the rotor is ready to come off. I had to use a pry bar to remove this gently working each side until it popped off. Once the rotor is removed, you need to hammer out the lug bolts. Then you have to tap the rotor away from the hub. This took a little work. Then check each of the lug bolts by screwing the lug nuts on them. They should go all the way down by hand. If they don't - go buy new bolts $2 a piece. Installing: Position new rotor on hub. Get some dry ice from your local grocery store and freeze the bolts for about 10 minutes. Pull one bolt out of the ice at a time and install on the rotor and tighten the bolt with the lug nut. I put the nuts on upside down and used a 7/8" wrench and mallet to tap on the wrench to get these as tight as possible. You also have to tap on the head of the bolt and repeat the wrench tapping. Do this for each bolt pulling one out of the ice at a time. You do not have to get the rotor and hub completely together but get it as close together as possible. Once all of the lug bolts are in it is time to put the rotor on the truck. Ensure the shield is on the spindle and install the rotor, again, this takes some work. Once the rotor is on, connect the ABS sensing line. Line up the shield and install 4 bolts to rear of hub. You can align these by moving the hub, not the rotor. Install the caliper, remember to put brake grease on these 2 bolts. You may have to compress the caliper slightly. To do this remove the brake pad that has the circular part of the caliper touching it. Open the brake fill cap on the master cylinder. Use a C-clamp to compress the circular part. Reinstall the brake pad and brake fill cap. Install the caliper. Install the wheel and tighten lug nuts. I used a cheater bar on my tire iron and ensured that the lug bolts were flush with the head of the lug nuts. Then I removed the wheel to verify that the gap between the rotor and the hub was gone. Reinstall wheel, tighten lug nuts, and tighten spindle nut. Once both brakes have been replaced, start up the truck and pump the brakes several times till you feel some tension when pressing them.

Will alloy wheels from a HONDA CRV fit a SUZUKI GRAND VITARA. Both are 5 stud so just wondering if anyone can help


The rims from the Honda CRV won't fit the Grand Vitara.

The Honda has a 5 X 114.3mm spacing and the Grand Vitara has 5 X 139.7mm spacing. This means that even though they are both 5 lug rims, the Honda lugs are spaced closer together than the Vitara so they won't match up.
