How do i change a tire on a 1988 ford f-150


Before doing anything make sure you have air in your spare..,A good Jack and spare tire removal kit....The kit should be under or behind the passenger seat..I don't like the factory Jack it comes with because sometimes you need a good strong block of wood to achieve the height you need to contact the vehicle..and sometimes they don't work correctly...Some spare tire release tools are under the hood..It is a long skinny rod ...You have to use rod or rod kit to stick through the rear bumper at the slot and turn the rod counterclockwise after you feel the rod connect with the release mechanism..,Lower the spare until it touches the ground then keep turning so you can have enough slack to remove cable from spare tire...Set parking brake while in park and use the lug nut removal tool to break loose the lug nuts before raising vehicle..They are removed counter clockwise..Don't take nuts off just break them loose...Block front wheels for safety with anything solid you can find if you are stranded..If you can't find anything rely on parking brake..It should be safe in park but safety first....Jack vehicle up..,remove all lug nuts put them in a safe clean place don't lose them..Remove flat tire..Install spare..Start each lug nut and tighten them all tight by hand..Snug each nut clockwise in a star pattern ..Get them good and tight but don't try to hurt yourself or break the stud...Lower vehicle,remove Jack..Snug each lug nut once again for safety..Put flat in truck bed for now rather than back in the spare storage area because it has to be repaired..Crank spare cable that held spare under truck clockwise until it stops.Remove tool..,Gather all tools used., remove blocks from front tires.,Head to a tire store...

How to remove anti theft lug nut on an Acura without tool


There are tools designed specifically for this problem which you can probably buy at Sears or any parts store, or you can do what we usually end up doing, and that is taking a 12 point socket that'll fit snugly on the nut and hammering it on. You may have to drive it on the nut really hard, and this may ruin the socket so try to find one you don't mind losing. Then back the nut off.

Is a lug nut lock the device that lets you remove the last lug nut? We have lost the tool that does this and are not sure how to get another one. AAA does not have it.


well it is called a lock lug nut tool or socket depends if they are factory or aftermarket. they some times have them at the dealer and they do make a lock lug nut removal tool kit that we use to remove them. we do AAAand carry them in our trucks just for this purpose.

I have a flat tire, but do not have the special tool to take off the bolt. Any ideas? 2010 Honda CRV


Most auto parts stores have Locking Lug Nut removal tools. If you know the size of your lug nut you may be able to buy a single tool that fits on a standard ratchet to remove the locking lug nut. If your lug nut is the type that spins without the proper tool to remove it, your best bet is a mechanic with the proper equipment to avoid doing damage to the wheel or stud.

Good luck!

How to replace rear wheel studs on a 2004 KIA spectra?


if this vehicle has drums, remove the tire, remove the drum and use a 2.5lb hammer to knock the stud (I assume you mean lug nut bolt) from the front to the back. Hit this solidly and hard as if you use a lot of little taps you will likely mushroom the end and never get it out. These are pressed in but can be removed without a press and put in without a press. If you have disk in the back the concept is the same but you will have to press them in and out so you don't damage the disk itself. If you are actually talking about the lug nuts because one is locked on either from damage, weather or a locking lug and you no longer have the special key to remove it, the process gets a little harder. Essentially you have to figure out a way to cut it off or work it off. There used to be a wrench on the market that essentially worked on any kind of a nut regardless of the damage to the nut because it used the force you applied to break it free in order to grab the nut through a pinching action. As an alternative you can try using a set of vice grip pliers, if you try this make sure you have Craftsman, Snap On or Thorsen tools so if it breaks you can get it replaced for free. If it's the locking lug your going to have to knock the special cap off and find a way to lock onto the smaller nut. If it is rust locked or Locked on because of damaged threads try lock free spray lubricant, WD40 or a small propane torch to loosen the the bolt through expansion.

Remove and replace alternator


Hello,

Just follow these steps to remove and replace the alternator. You will need this tools, Serpentine belt tool, Battery wrench, Lug wrench, Floor jack, Jack stand, Socket set,

  1. Open the hood, locate the serpentine belt tensioner and move the tensioner off the
    serpentine belt with the serpentine belt tool. Slip the belt off the tensioner
    pulley with your other hand and then slowly move the tensioner back to its normal
    position. You can pinpoint the location of the belt tensioner by following the belt
    routing diagram, printed on the fan shroud.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery with the battery wrench.
    Push the cable end away from the battery so it doesn't make contact during the
    repair.
  3. Turn the lug nuts on the right-front wheel counterclockwise until they're loose
    enough for hand removal, but leave them on for now.
  4. Lift the right-front end with the floor jack and support it on a jack stand placed
    underneath the right-front frame. Remove the lug nuts and right-front wheel by hand
    and set them aside.
  5. Slip the serpentine belt off the alternator pulley by hand. You can access the
    alternator through the wheel well. Unplug the wiring harness from the alternator
    by hand and remove the ground strap with your socket set.
  6. Remove the alternator mounting bolts with your socket set. Lift the alternator out
    of the engine well, through the wheel well. Insert the new alternator in reverse of
    how you removed the old one.
  7. Thread the alternator mounting bolt through the new alternator and into the
    alternator bracket by hand. Tighten the bolts with your socket set.
  8. Attach the alternator ground strap with your socket set. Plug the alternator
    wiring harness in by hand.
  9. Slip the serpentine belt over the new alternator pulley. Reinstall the wheel and
    lug nuts by hand. Lower the Taurus of the jack stand with the floor jack.
  10. Move the belt tensioner aside again and place the belt on the tensioner pulley with
    your free hand. Hold the belt on the pulley and slowly move the tensioner back to
    its normal position. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery.
Hope this helps you.
Take care and good luck

I have a 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 3.0L V6 engine It has one lug nut lock on each of the stock rims and I have no key to get them off to fix my brakes. I need to know what is the specific size and type...


finding a key will be most difficult, you can find a removal tool from a specialy tool supplier like snapon, its a reverse screw type nut that will grip the outside of the lock

How do i change the back tire


Find the jack and jack up the rear just in front of the rear tire you are changing. (don't lift off ground completely yet). Using the lug wrench (also called a tire iron) break loose each lug nut.

Finish raising the vehicle just high enough that the tire isn't touching the ground. Finish removing the lug nuts, then pull tire off. Put new (different/spare) tire on, and put the lug nuts back on, and tighten by hand until tire is snug. With the car still raised, lightly tighten the lug nuts, until snug again (by use of lug wrench).

Lower car completely and tighten the lug nuts again (do not over tighten). At all points of tightening lug nuts, do so in a criss cross pattern. Start with one, then move to the one directly across from that, and so on (not all will be "directly" across at all times, so just make sure you alternate and don't go in any consecutive (clockwise/counter clockwise) order.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
