Just keep kicking it mitsubishi wheels are nortorious for corrosion seizing wheels to the hub and make sure you clean the corrosion off before you put the wheel back on or you could have problems.

Ford Escape 2006 lug nuts are off but the tire won't budge


Aluminum wheels, huh? VERY common problem. I use a VERY LARGE rubber mallot at the shop to "beat" the wheels of when they are corroded into place like that. If you have the vehicle on a jack-stand, you can also start one of the wheel nuts onto the stud a few turns just to keep the tire from flying off and hurting somebody....then sit down on the ground and KICK HARD to break the wheel loose from the hub. Just make sure the vehicle is properly supported so it does not come crashing down.

If you can manage to get the thing loose, It will help in the future if you sand the inside of the wheel center hole a little and coat it with anti-seize compound before reinstalling it on the vehicle.

I have a 2006 Eddie Bauer Ford Explorer. The front passenger side tire blew out. I took off all the lug nuts that I could see but I can't get the tire off. Is there a hidden lug nut somewhere? Do I...


If you first jack up the right side with wheel chocks in place and set in park, and take off all of the lugnuts, sometimes the wheel gets stuck to the hub, in the middle, requiring a heavy hammer or heavy piece of metal shaft to hit the wheel at the 6 o'clock position from behind the wheel to dislodge it.

This is a common problem.

How to replace lug studs 2003 mitsubishi eclipse


The studs can be pressed out but most mechanics will just tap them out with a large hammer on the car after removing the wheel, the caliper & the rotor. You can look at the new one you're putting back in & see the ridges at the base where they "lock" into position when installed to prevent them from turning when removing or installing the lug nuts. Make sure the threads are the same, the length & of course the mounting area must be a match to the one removed.

There are a few areas where you can drive the stud out without causing any damage to the parts behind the wheel hub & you'll have to watch clearance behind them & use the same location for any you remove.

This same location with clearance will be where you need to reinstall them, once into the hole & ready to be drawn solid ready for use, draw them up with the lug nut and any spacer or washers you have, or just the nut & draw the stud flush with the rear of the wheel hub. then you'll know it's solid. You don't want to do this with the wheel on as you can't verify that they are flush, you don't want one coming loose as you're trying to change a tire, or finish this job, you can't get the wheel off.

Good luck.
