I need to chnge the tire on my sons 2002 mercury cougar. i have the luggs off and there seemes to be a nut in the center of the tire keeping it held on. Is this the case ar am i missing something? ond if...
Firstly please use the queens english as lug means to a slang word to carry ,or a worm in the sand used as fishing bait ,so yes you have removed the the four wheel nuts ,leave the middle one alone as that holds the drive shaft on ,whats happening is no doubt you have a alloy wheel rim and its corroded to the hub, now make sure wheel is off the ground and then place a axle stand under the chassis to support the weight -now the fun part place aplank of wood against the inside of the wheel lay underneath and hit the plank with a 7kg(14lb) hammer ,you stated this is your sons car and he cannot change his own wheel ,a daughter maybe --but a mother changing a sons wheel on a car ,now i have heard it all?? once the wheel is removed make sure you put some grease where the alloy contacts the steel of the hub to ensure it doesnt corrode up again then send the prodical son to a car repair course at the local college .Mother changing a sons wheel ---iam speechless as i just dont beleave what i have read to be true?What will happen if and when he ever gets married --Does he know enough to make you a grandmother ? sorry to be facietious but?mum changing a sons car wheel
