Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring

Can't get the passenger lug nuts loose on 1997 Sebring.

Daughter has a flat tire and I can't get the lug nuts loose. Is there a special lock or something to these? Or should I heat them with a torch or something?

Did you try a breaker bar with a little longer pipe over it for extra leverage? I won't heat with a torch unless its a steel rim. if there on that tight use the breaker bar the worst that can happen is you break them off, and then you just put new wheel studs back in.

How do i change a tire on a 1988 ford f-150


Before doing anything make sure you have air in your spare..,A good Jack and spare tire removal kit....The kit should be under or behind the passenger seat..I don't like the factory Jack it comes with because sometimes you need a good strong block of wood to achieve the height you need to contact the vehicle..and sometimes they don't work correctly...Some spare tire release tools are under the hood..It is a long skinny rod ...You have to use rod or rod kit to stick through the rear bumper at the slot and turn the rod counterclockwise after you feel the rod connect with the release mechanism..,Lower the spare until it touches the ground then keep turning so you can have enough slack to remove cable from spare tire...Set parking brake while in park and use the lug nut removal tool to break loose the lug nuts before raising vehicle..They are removed counter clockwise..Don't take nuts off just break them loose...Block front wheels for safety with anything solid you can find if you are stranded..If you can't find anything rely on parking brake..It should be safe in park but safety first....Jack vehicle up..,remove all lug nuts put them in a safe clean place don't lose them..Remove flat tire..Install spare..Start each lug nut and tighten them all tight by hand..Snug each nut clockwise in a star pattern ..Get them good and tight but don't try to hurt yourself or break the stud...Lower vehicle,remove Jack..Snug each lug nut once again for safety..Put flat in truck bed for now rather than back in the spare storage area because it has to be repaired..Crank spare cable that held spare under truck clockwise until it stops.Remove tool..,Gather all tools used., remove blocks from front tires.,Head to a tire store...

I have a flat tire, but do not have the special tool to take off the bolt. Any ideas? 2010 Honda CRV


Most auto parts stores have Locking Lug Nut removal tools. If you know the size of your lug nut you may be able to buy a single tool that fits on a standard ratchet to remove the locking lug nut. If your lug nut is the type that spins without the proper tool to remove it, your best bet is a mechanic with the proper equipment to avoid doing damage to the wheel or stud.

Good luck!

Cannot get the rear flat tire off of 1995 chevy cavalier. Do I need a special tool for this?


You should only need a standard lug nut wrench to remove the wheel, unless you have a lock nut (usually one nut is different) and it requires a 'key' to remove that one nut-if they are all the same, however, you just need a lug wrench with the correct size to remove them.

All lug nut are off and the rar wheel will not come off.


The wheel is likely rusted in place or held there by dried mud/crud. Remembering that the truck is supported by a flimsy jack, smack the top of the tire with a small sledge hammer or rubber mallet -- it should pop loose.

1997 Jeep wrangler: The tires loosen up and fly.


Make sure that your wheels sit flat against the hub flange and that the center hole fits the protrusion on the hub. Clean all rust and corrosion from both the hub and the wheel mating surface.
When tightening, use a star pattern, tightening one lug part way, semi-tight, then doing the one opposite it and so on, 'till you are back at the first one. Once all are semi tight, torque each to about 75 to 80 foot pounds in the same pattern. Normally you should not need to do this third step, but drive around normally for about an hour, then re check the lug tightness again with the torque wrench.
Never use a wheel that either does not fit exactly or one that has been damaged at the lug holes by running loose. Make sure all wheel studs are in good condition. Any damaged by a loose wheel must be replaced.
One rule for aftermarket wheels. You need to have at least the same amount of threads inside the lug nut as the diameter of the lug. (a 1/2" stud needs to have at least 1/2" of threaded area inside the nut...more is better)
