Unable to remove the tires.

I have been unable to remove the tires from my 2005 Toyota Highlander. After removing the lug nuts, there appears to be another large bolt holding the tire to the axle. Any suggestions?

If you have all the lug nuts off the wheel will come off it is problaby rusted to the hub.  Do not take the large bolt out.  You need to loosly screw 2 of the lugs back on but not all the way.  Now kick the tire w/ the heel of your shoe to break it free.  or if you have a plastic weighted hammer hit on the backside of the tire to break it free.  It will come loose

Once All of the lug nuts are removed from the studs, if the vehicle is jacked up off of the ground, clearance under the tire, pull the tire off, it will be pretty heavy.

Replace Right Rear broken Taillight assembly


Just joined 20 minutes ago....maybe I can help.
My volkswagen golf rear cluster is often a bother.
1, Open boot area and remove the plastic cover.
2, Often its the 3 or 4 nuts holding the interior cluster in place, use a socket to remove them, a 8/10/12 mm nut usually .
3, Exterior shell falls away, allowing access to the bulbs.
4, reverse to re assemble.


Good luck, Dave

How do i release the spare tire on my 2005 Kia Sedona


Hi, the spare tire is stored on the underside of the vehicle, under the right-side cargo door. The bolt is located in a recessed area that is protected by a small square plastic covering. To remove the spare tire, find and remove the bolt cover, then use your lug nut wrench to loosen the bolt holding the tire.
Remove the spare tire fastener's plastic cover, place the lug nut wrench onto the lug nut holding the tire onto the bolt, turn the wrench in a counter-clockwise direction until the tire is released and reaches the ground.

How do I get the spare wheel from under my 2006 toyota highlander


Hello.

You have posed a great question, one I am sure future viewers here will want to see answered.

The spare tire, under the vehicle, is lowered via a cable. There is a silver bolt in the rear compartment, under the carpeting. Pull the carpeting back, and you will see the bolt. Using the lug wrench from the tool kit, rotate the bolt counter-clockwise. This will rotate the cable mechanism above the spare tire, and lower it. Once the tire is low enough, the center clamp can be loosened from the center of the rim, and the tire removed from the cable device.

To raise the wheel back up, place the clamp device back into the center of the rim, and rotate the bolt clockwise, until the tire is fully raised.

Thanks for the Question.

Tire stuck/lug nuts removed


use 3lb sledge on inner edge of rim be careful not to damage rim rubber mallet won't provide enough shock to loosen rust. ps leave one lug nut on so tire won't fly off.
