Want to replace front left lugs

I use an impact gun on them. They always come off, even if they are stripped. Breaker bar with a pipe on it gives you more leverage. Lube it also.

Need help getting the axle nut off of 2004 kia sorento nut won't budge

make sure you have a good brand breaker bar(lifetime warranty best), the proper sized socket(impact type), and either an old bumper jack that fits over the breaker bar or a 5 to 6 foot fence post. leave the whole vehicle on the ground, if you cant reach nut with wheel on, then have a helper stomp on the brakes firmly while you put breaker bar at nine oclock, slip jack or post over breaker bar and firmly add your weight and a friends to the end of bar pushing down until SOMETHING gives, hopefully its the nut. :)

My passenger front seat will not budge.ive tried everything!i have a 2001 pontiac grand am.please tell me what size the bolts are that hold the seat in.

You may have to remove the four nuts holding the seat down, remove the seat, and look for change, or debreas stuck in the track. Check the bearings, lubercate the track lightly. If the bearings are shot, or the frame/track is bent, you can try to pry it back, but it may be easier to purchase a new seat.

The plastic cover should be able to be removed. There is a ratchet mechanism for the seat belt, after removing the cover, you maybe able to free it up to get the belt loose, some WD-40 may help.

Where is the radiator cap located on the 2001 focus?

A 2001 Ford Focus does not have an outlet on the radiator for a cap. It has a de-gas type cooling system and what would traditionally be called a "radiator cap" has become the de-gas bottle cap. It is located on the de-gas bottle just in front of the passenger strut tower and behind the passenger headlamp assembly. Do not open this cap when the engine is hot as you may be burned by the coolant.

Cant get my axel off

If you are referring to the axle nut on the end of the axle shaft, you may need an impact wrench, or make sure to bend the nut back (straighten out the bent section), put the car on the ground with the wheel on, and use a breaker bar, with a 3 foot piece of pipe attached (cheater bar) to loosen it. REMEMBER - some of these are reverse thread, if so you will have to go clockwise to loosen and CCW to tighten, thus, you MAY be tightening it - check the thread on the end of the shaft to tell you what way to turn the nut - if it still won't come off then you may have to use some heat, and/or chemical penetrants, but make sure you are turning it the correct way first...
