SOURCE: My front wheel on the driver's side is making a

Good Evening, this is something I run across alot and mainly it tends to be the hubcaps. And I would first off try to remove the hubcap first an drive it and see if that is the issue, if you still have a rattling noise then investigate further maybe a sway bar link or such. But always look at the obvious first, usually it is something minor that can be overlooked. Take your lug wrench and loosen all the plastic caps and once you have them all loose the hubcap will come off. Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Joey

On 2005 Buick LaCrosse Cx do I have to remove the wheel to take off original hubcap?


Depends on the particular wheel option on the car but yes many factory hub caps are held on by either the wheel lug nuts or by screw on caps that thread onto the wheel stud like a lugnut. This keeps them from falling off or being easily stolen.

Center wheel cap falling off


The center cap on these grabs onto the lug nuts. If you change anything it should be those. You could also do something to give them a tighter fit which is a ghetto fix but lining the inside of the center cap holes with paper or something.

THE CENTER HUB COVERS GET LOOSE AND FALL OFF ,I'VE TIGHTENED THEM SEVERAL TIMES,BUT AFYER A WHILE THE COVERS WILL FALL OFF AGAIN


Don't know if you mean the optional 15 X 8 aluminum sport wheels, or the standard steel wheel with center cap and trim ring...In either case, the factory center caps are push in from the outside,,,try using a narrow trimmed duct tape that runs around the inside contact point of the center cap...you can make it as thick as necessary to make a tighter fit...This always worked perfectly for me...no center caps lost...:) Hope this helps.

I have a flat tire and i can't get the plastic silver face plate off how do i get it off without breaking it?


if your talking about the chrome plated hub caps, you can use a 3/4" socket with a short extension to unsrew the black plastic nut covers off turning them counterclockwise until they're loose then pull the wheel coves off. When you screw the plastic nut covers on tighten by hand until they're snug don't over tighten them you can srtip the plastic threads (note: the actual lug steel lug nuts are under the wheel covers make sure you tighten them good )

How to replace lug studs


You will need a special tool to press the lug studs in and out of the flange, or you can follow these directions;

First you will have to pound the broken lug stud(s) out of the wheel hub/flange, use a punch or a drift that is a little smaller in diameter than the lug stud, and be sure that you do not pound on the flange itself, then you will need a lug nut and about a half an inch thick of flat washers.

1. Insert the new lug stud through the wheel hub from behind so that the threaded end is facing out towards you and then put some grease on the threads.

2. Then slip the flat washers onto the lug stud followed by the lug nut, and run the lug nut down backwards with the flat end of the lug nut towards the flat washers to take up the slack and use plenty of grease on the threads.

3. Then using a breaker bar tighten the lug nut until it pulls the lug stud through the wheel hub and it is flush with the wheel hub.

Be sure that the amount of flat washers used will make up for any non-threaded part of the lug stud that might stick out past the wheel hub preventing the lug nut from pulling the lug stud all the way through the wheel hub, and basically you do not want the lug nut to run out of threads before it can pull the lug stud flush with the wheel hub.

Let me know if you require any further assistance.

You require "lug studs" to be able to install a lug nut to secure the tire.

How do you change a wheel seal on a mercury mountaneer 1998 rear end


Axle Vent
NOTE: If the vent cannot be cleared, it must be installed new.
A plugged vent will cause excessive seal lip wear due to internal pressure buildup. If a leak occurs, check the vent. Make sure the vent hose is not kinked. Remove the hose from the vent nipple and clear the hose of any foreign material. While the hose is removed, pass a length of mechanics wire or a small diameter Allen wrench in and out of the vent to clean it. Connect the hose when done. The vent is located on the drivers side top of axle housing.
If you plan on doing most repairs yourself I would suggest buying a Haynes or Chilton manual for your particular vehicle. Or there are some data disks on e.bay($12-$15) For a cost of under $25, you can almost do any repair yourself with these manuals.Also there are online manuals like the site called ALLDATA where guides can be viewed for a fee. All these solutions will save you time and money, and give peace of mind over correct repairs. I can post you some procedures here also.

Installing wheels without proper metal-to-metal contact at the wheel mounting surfaces can cause the lug nut to loosen and the wheel to come off while the vehicle is in motion, causing loss of control. Clean the wheel hub and mounting surfaces. Install the tire and wheel assembly.
