Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type

1 Answer

I have an x type jaguar 2004 and am having problems removing the lug nuts. There's a flimsy outside casing that fits the supplied wrench but when applying tension, comes away from additional lug nuts underneath. Then the wrench won't fit the crappy steel nut underneath. Any ideas?

Go to parts house and buy a 4 way lug wrench for import(mm) sizes. they are available. ask parts guy if he will let you see if it will fit your car before buying. He let you try if the car is there.

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!

find one size down socket and extension bar then use hammer carefully but firmly to bray onto lug nut once on use ratchet with a piece of pipe placed over topof ratchet handle for extra leverage and should crack off if not u can buy extraction kit from motorspares shop or you could hit top of nut with chisel to score then take normal wheelnut thread on backwards ie flat edge first ov er-tighten then slacken this should cause it to get a bite of lugnut and loosen both hope this helps

Factory supplied lug nut wrench will not fit in recessed area around the lug nut in order to lossen and remove the nut.

Most likely a 3/4" or 19mm deep socket-get one at sears

You could throw away, any wheel wrench made, in the last 60 years,they serve no purpose,as you found out.

What wrench is needed to remove the 2002 GTI lug nuts?

they are the locking wheel nuts(lugs)and you will need a key(not a hex allen key)to remove them.if you look close you will see that the sides are not equal.
I use a nut spilitter or an old socket hammered onto the nut to remove it,means replacements but next time you buy a car check to make sure you have the radio code and the wheel nut key.

Can not remove lug nut caps 2003 x -type jaguar

I have an 04 xj8. the lug nuts are a good bad example of half baked engineering. the lug nuts are fabricated from ugly steel with an 11/16 hex end. to beautify this, Jaguar overlays the nut end with a stainless steel 3/4 inch cap, crimped to the nut. On top of this, the nut is to be torqued to 90+ ft-lb! The only way to remove the lug nut without damage is with a SIX POINT socket and a breaker bar or an impact wrench. Using a 12 point socket will deform the cap, causing the wrench to spin on the cap and or the cap to spin on the nut itself. If that has happened, it is possible to recover using a 15 oz or thereabouts ball peen hammer and a deep 3/4 inch impact socket (the black ones). Line up the socket to the cap, doing a best guess to where the flats are and give the socket a light blow. Keep trying that until the socket seems to stick on, then hit it harder. Eventually you will find the right point and the socket will go on and reform the cap. Then a breaker bar can remove the cap/nut. New assemblies can be had for about $6 from "partsbin" or "autohausaz".

I don't know how to use the plastic wheel nut cap remover


They are actually fitted over your lug nut. Your factory wrench should be fitted over these as they will turn with lugs. One more advice piece here, always use the factory lug wrench to break them loose before using an air impact to finish the job. Often times, the impact will round these off making it virtually impossible to remove without going ahead and destroying them. Try for parts if this ever happens as they usually have them for around $6-8 as this is a common problem. hope this helps.

I can't find the "key" or "star tool" to remove the wheel

Sounds like a previous owner replaced some of the lug nuts with security type which require a special adapter to fit the lug wrench.
A tire shop or the car dealer might be able to supply the adapter.

I own a 2002 jaguar x-type and i need to know the lug nut or wheel nut size

I believe the size is the measurement from any of the flat sides of the lug nut across to a flat side directly across from it. So to make it easy to measure, just remove one, and I assume it would be measured as metric. An easier way would be what size metric socket fits the lug nuts? That would be the nut size.

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.
