The black lug nuts are the lug nut cover that you have to unscrew off the lug nut it self to remove the wheel cover. Once the wheel cove is off you'll see the real lug nuts holding the wheel in place, note do not over torque the plastic lug nut cover when re installing the wheel cover. The plastics are know to crack and will not hold the wheel cover on the wheel any more cause you to lose them on the hy way. Good luck and be safe, oh and the plastic lug nut cover is attached to the wheel cover so do not try to separate them from the wheel cover.

How to remove rear wheel


Hi, I hope I can help with this.
You should only have to remove the lug nuts and the wheel and tire will be removed. If you removed the center wheel nut then it sounds like you are trying to remove the brake rotor. To remove the wheel the 5 or 6 lug nuts need to be removed. To remove the rear spare tire there is a plastic cover to remove which then has a key hole (locks for security). You will need to unlock this as well.

How do I change a tire on a 2001 town and country


Open the hatch back. On the left-hand side is a panel that you can open in which the jack resides. Take that out.

(If you want to use the spare tire, located under the trunk space...)
You will see a plastic disc on the floor of the trunk space (where you store your luggage/groceries/etc). With a flat head screw driver pop the flat disc up & off. This will reveal a nut that you can turn to lower/release the spare tire that is directly underneath it.

If your T&C is like mine, you have a plastic cover in the middle of each alloy wheel that covers the lug nuts. This plastic cover can be popped off with the flat/nubby end of the crow bar that comes with the jack. It fits perfectly into a slot on the plastic cover.

Once you get the plastic cover off, the 5 lug nuts are revealed to you. Before you jack up the van, even a little, I would try to loosen all 5 lug nuts, just a bit...to get them going. Once the van is jacked up, it will be difficult to begin to loosen the lug nuts.

With the nuts loosened, set up the jack so that once you begin to turn it, the slot in the jack fits right into the frame of the van. You will see the frame that fits the slot in the jack between the front tires and back tires, on either side of the van.

Once the tire you want to change is fully lifted off of the ground, loosen the rest of the lug nuts and remove the tire. Replace it and reverse the order of what you just did. Get the 5 lug nuts onto the new tire, but only snug them up by hand. Once the tire touches the ground as the jack is lowered, then you can fully tighten the lug nuts with the crowbar.

Hope that helps!

How to replace lug nut studs 2002 chevrolet cavalier


take a hammer and a punch and pound it in, it will pop out the back of the hub assembly, then you get your new bolt, slide it through the back, same way the old one came out, throw a few washers on it and use the lug nut to draw it out till it catches, take the lug nut and washers back off, put the tire back on and use a little extra torque on that stud to insure it is all the way in place.

Good Luck!!

Cant get lug nuts off=is cover attached at lug nuts or does it come off first


Is your car the one in the pic,or what style of wheel do you have on it if its the one in the pic then the center cap is a pop in style and will just take a flat screw driver to pop off there will be a notch to insert the blade of the screw driver in between the wheel and the cap just insert and twist cap should pop off.

Wheel covers on 2005 S-Type


Same problem on an 02 X-Type. I called a mechanic and he said to use a 7/8" socket. I have yet to give it a try, but I thought it might help.

I tried to post a solution but didn't realize that I needed to sign up first.
