Flat tire in changing a flat tire, we took the lug nuts off - but there is a big bolt in the middle of the tire that appears to still be holding the tire on and there are no tools supplied to take it off.

The lug bolts are all you need to take off. the big bolt in the middle holds the spindle on and you don't want to take that off. just take off all the lug bolts and the tire should slide right off. if it hasn't been off in awhile, kick it a few times to loosen it up.

How to remove front wheels of Acura 1996 3.2 TL


The large nut you see is most likely the axle retention nut.

It is NOT used to hold on the wheel.

The wheels on a 2000 Acura TL are secured to the wheel hub by 5 lug nuts.

If after removing the "lugs" the tire and wheel may be difficult to remove after a long period due to corrosion betweem the wheel and hub.

If this happens, tap the tire at opposite ends (like 12 and 6 o'clock) with a rubber or plastic mallet.

This should help to loosen the wheel so you can remove it.

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.

My front passenger tire of my 98 Corolla will not come off. I took off the lugnuts, but it seems like there is another big bolt holding it on?


Give it a boot, it should pop off, the aluminum oxidizes and sticks to the steel, There is no big bolt. Just lug nuts. Hope this helps.

I have a 95 Chevy suburban and I am trying to change the rotor and can not get it off. The lugs are attached to the rotor and not sure what I should do


Removing: Loosen lug nuts (7/8") and spindle nut (36mm). Lift truck. Remove lug nuts, spindle nut, and wheel. Remove 2 bolts (3/8" allen) holding calipers on. Hold the calipers up with a bungee cord. I attached it to the sheet metal of the fender. Remove 4 bolts (15mm) from rear of hubs. Once these bolts are removed you can move the shield that is in-between the hub and the axle(I think). You are moving it to get access to the allen bolt that holds the ABS sensor on. Once you move the shield then you can look through the top of the rotor through the slots and see the sensor line and bolt. I don't remember what size allen this one took. You do need a long allen wrench though. Disconnect sensing line from hub. Now the rotor is ready to come off. I had to use a pry bar to remove this gently working each side until it popped off. Once the rotor is removed, you need to hammer out the lug bolts. Then you have to tap the rotor away from the hub. This took a little work. Then check each of the lug bolts by screwing the lug nuts on them. They should go all the way down by hand. If they don't - go buy new bolts $2 a piece. Installing: Position new rotor on hub. Get some dry ice from your local grocery store and freeze the bolts for about 10 minutes. Pull one bolt out of the ice at a time and install on the rotor and tighten the bolt with the lug nut. I put the nuts on upside down and used a 7/8" wrench and mallet to tap on the wrench to get these as tight as possible. You also have to tap on the head of the bolt and repeat the wrench tapping. Do this for each bolt pulling one out of the ice at a time. You do not have to get the rotor and hub completely together but get it as close together as possible. Once all of the lug bolts are in it is time to put the rotor on the truck. Ensure the shield is on the spindle and install the rotor, again, this takes some work. Once the rotor is on, connect the ABS sensing line. Line up the shield and install 4 bolts to rear of hub. You can align these by moving the hub, not the rotor. Install the caliper, remember to put brake grease on these 2 bolts. You may have to compress the caliper slightly. To do this remove the brake pad that has the circular part of the caliper touching it. Open the brake fill cap on the master cylinder. Use a C-clamp to compress the circular part. Reinstall the brake pad and brake fill cap. Install the caliper. Install the wheel and tighten lug nuts. I used a cheater bar on my tire iron and ensured that the lug bolts were flush with the head of the lug nuts. Then I removed the wheel to verify that the gap between the rotor and the hub was gone. Reinstall wheel, tighten lug nuts, and tighten spindle nut. Once both brakes have been replaced, start up the truck and pump the brakes several times till you feel some tension when pressing them.

Took off lug nuts but tire won't come off


common issue. take out your spare tire and use it to hit the inside of the wheel. this will knock it loose and save you excessive effort. once you are done you get anti sieze and apply it to the centre of the hub and install the wheel. torque is about 90 ft lbs..

Unable to remove the tires.


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.
