It's just stuck from a layer of rust, you should be able to pry it off. maybe bang on it a little. Not so hard that you knock the car off the jack, though.

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.

Having difficulty changing front drivers side tire on the Jaguar x type 2003. the tire is flat and we cannot seem to remove the tire

If all the lug nuts are removed and the tire will not come off it is frozen onto the hub. This is really common with aluminum wheels. If you can safely support the vehicle so that it will not fall off the jack you can try kicking the backside of the tire. This will work most of the time.

If that doesn't work put the lug nuts on till there just snug and then loosen them 3 or 4 turns. remove the jack and drive the vehicle back and forth until the wheel falls off the hub.

Everyone I work with as well as myself, have at least a four pound plastic deadblow hammer just to remove the wheels that this happens to.

Cant take the wheel off

Spray the base of the lug nuts liberally with penetrating lubricant and let it sit overnight. Break the nuts loose with a lug wrench or a breaker bar -do not jack the car up yet. Break the nuts loose while all 4 tires are on the ground with the full weight of the car on them. Jack the car up once they are loosened to remove the wheel. To reinstall the wheel, snug down the nuts with wheel off the ground, then drop the car on down completely and tighten the nuts to factory ratings

03 Kia Rio- can not get retaining screws off rotor...screws now stripped

hi from uk the retain screws are for holding the rotor/disc in position so when wheel bolts are removed they can be easily refitted as rotor will not move off line the screws play no part in brakes and the wheel bolts or nuts are what secure the wheels and rotors in place SO if screw head has stripped ? you can use a drill with bit size of head of screw and drill the head off screw then remove rotor you can then try vice grips to remove screw but if not possible you can fit rotor and reassemble brakes hope this helps

2003 rio kia roaring noise in rear

brake drums ar faily simple to change, if u take the wheels off ul see a little centre cap, behind the cap theres a 21 mm nut, be careful not to mix up the nuts cos they are opposite threads, n/s is left hand thread.
remove the nuts (i advise replacin the nuts) then tap the drum while u spin it jus to loosen it off then jus pull it off, be careful with the bearing cos they'll fall out, IMPORTANT! when tightening the centre nuts back up they jus need to be nipped up NOT tight, jus enough to take the play out of the bearings but keep it spinning freely, when put the wheels back on make sure theres no play in it

Replacement of a 2004 kia rio rear drum stud

Loosen the remaining lug nuts, then jack up the car, take off the wheel, and ease off the brake drum. Whack the end of the stud to start it out of the hole, then take a rod, buggered up socket extension, or other object and drive out the stud the rest of the way. Be careful not to use too much force or you will damage the wheel bearings. If it doesn't want to come out, take the hub off, put it down on a solid surface, and whack the heck out of it. Once the stud is out insert the stud into the hole and thread on the lug nut to pull the lug into the hub. After going as far as it will go, back off the lug nut, put the drum and wheel back on, thread the lug nuts back on, hand tighten, and then lower the vehicle to the ground and tighten the rest of the way.
