Question about 2006 Ford Explorer

2 Answers

I have a 2006 Eddie Bauer Ford Explorer. The front passenger side tire blew out. I took off all the lug nuts that I could see but I can't get the tire off. Is there a hidden lug nut somewhere? Do I need to remove the rim or something?

    Thank you for your answer. Unfortunately the Explorer is in a parking lot on a slight slope and I am afraid I might knock it off the jack if I hit it. The tire has a big rip in it so I can't drive it at all. Also I am unable to get behind the tire to hit it.

Does it have mags or steel wheels some times they both will corrode or rust to the hub if you have all five lug nuts off then thats what is happening try spraying it with wd 40 or some other type of penetrating spray you may have kick the tire on one side or use a rubber mallet.just be careful has the tire can come off quickly.Hope this helps and good luck.

    Thank you all for the responses. I did some of everything suggested. I sprayed WD-40, tried a rubber hammer, then I drove around in a small circle with the lug nuts loose and there was a loud "pop" and that did it! Thanks again. Problem solved for now. Now I have to find a low cost but very good tire to replace the broken one.

If you first jack up the right side with wheel chocks in place and set in park, and take off all of the lugnuts, sometimes the wheel gets stuck to the hub, in the middle, requiring a heavy hammer or heavy piece of metal shaft to hit the wheel at the 6 o'clock position from behind the wheel to dislodge it.

This is a common problem.

    if you can't get the wheel off by yourself, I think you should hire a tow truck to tow it in to the nearest tire and battery retailer (Sears, Walmart) to replace the tire. They can take it off for you and put a new tire on it, seeing that the tire is shredded.



    I would not leave a car on the side of the road for long. It might be considered to be abandoned, and someone might have it towed away and this will invoke even more fees for impounding and what not.

You have a dual range HVAC system. It has two blend doors in the HVAC box, and only the blend door for the driver's side is working properly. You will have to troubleshoot, and possibly replace the blend door actuator for the passenger side.
