You will probably have to remove all the studs and put new ones in. They are probably damaged beyond repair now. Take your wheel off, and just slam them with a hammer. They'll pop out the back. To install new ones, just put them through the holes from the back, and then pull them through by tightening the wheel nut. You will probably have to take the brake assembly off to make room to remove and replace the studs.

Cannot remove stripped lug nuts.2006 Impala 3.9 V-6 aluminum alloy wheels.


Forget removing tire from its current position. Taking it off without the right tools is next to impossible and ............

Bang the lug nuts with a nice lump hammer to loosen up any corrosion. Then try heating the nuts with a torch, and with a good pair of vise grips and and an extension for them loosen the nuts to remove the rim.

My 91 Honda Accord EX wagon has a broken lug on front driver side. How do i fix it, & will it be ok in the meantime with the three lug nuts on tight?


It is not recommended to drive it like that. It's not too bad to replace but it depends on your level of mechanical skill, You need to remove the brake caliper and disc and then you can simply knock the remains of the broken stud out with a hammer and punch, To fit the new one insert the stud and then put a large nut over the thread, then fit the lug nut and tighten it to pull the stud into the hub, then simply remove the lug nut and put it all back together.

How do I change brake pads on a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix. Are there any guides available


Yes, You can buy a manual at your lacal parts store.
However, It's not that hard. But , you didn't say if you
need to change the front or rear pads?
I'll assume your refering to the front.
1st You'll need to jack up the car if you only have one
Jack then, pick the side you are too start say left front.
Jack the car up like chainging a tire BUT, Jack the car
up but, leave the tire touching the ground with, some weight
still on the tire with a lug rench turn the lug nuts JUST enought
to loosin the nut DO NOT take the nut off, maybe 1/4 " only.
Do the same on the others. Now, Jack up the car until the tire
is off the ground. NOW, Put a Jack Stand under the car never
NOT use a stand. Remove the nuts and tire.
Turn the wheel to the right it will give you more room to work.
You'll need to remove the caliper that holds the pads on.
There are two screws that hold the caliper on. I believe,
there 13mm remove the screws (Take them all the way OUT)
Remove, The caliper the pads, will stay in the holder.
Remove, the pads you may need a screw driver to get the
pads out.There are two pads that have a scencer on them
one for each side PUT that pad on the inside holder.( sencer down)
NOW rember you need, too make room for te new pads.
You need a c- clamp to push the piston BACK into the
bottom of the caliper. Be sure the piston is at the bottom of the caliper
or the caliper will NOT fit back on. Install the new pads into the holder.
.Then, put the caliper back on to it's mount over the new pads.
Put the two caliper bolts back and, your done.
Reverse, the infromation from the top.

How do you change a tire on a honda crv? I need to get the tire off the back door and change the driver side front tire. Where does the jack go?


The owners manual shows where to put the jack. I no manual sometimes there are illustrations where the jack is stored in its compartment. First loosen the lug nuts before you jack up the vehicle, prevents the tire from turning. After jacking up the vehicle finish removing the lug nuts then remove the tire. The spare tire on the door may have a locking lug nut which requires a key to unlock before removing the lug nuts. Key us usually on the ignition key ring. Remove the lug nuts and put tire on the drivers side. Tighten up the nuts on the wheel and after the car is let down from the jack, finish tightening the lug nuts.

Mechanics keep on breaking my lug nuts,Why?


Over tightening. They are probably using an impact wrench to tight the lugs because its the fastest way. Its not the right way though.
Here is what happens. When the nuts are tightened, the studs will stretch. This tension holds the wheels on to the rim. If you over tighten the studs you can damage them and they could fail. The best approach is to use an impact wrench to snug up the nuts. Then go back with a torque wrench and tighten to the manufacturer specifications.(lug nut torque for your vehicle is 110 ft-lbs ) Next time you are having your tires rotated or changed, make sure the mechanic uses a torque wrench and the correct torque.

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.
