Cannot remove stripped lug nuts.2006 Impala 3.9 V-6 aluminum alloy wheels.


Forget removing tire from its current position. Taking it off without the right tools is next to impossible and ............

Bang the lug nuts with a nice lump hammer to loosen up any corrosion. Then try heating the nuts with a torch, and with a good pair of vise grips and and an extension for them loosen the nuts to remove the rim.

I have lost wheel socket, so cant remove wheels, special stud in each wheel


If they are Factory Wheels Dealer should get you a key Socket. If they are After Market Wheels then depending on the exterior shape and size of the special Lug nut get a LUG NUT REMOVER SOCKET SET from a Auto part Store. Since you will have to use a Impact wrench best will be to go to a Professional Tire and Rim Installer and they usually have all kinds of Lug nut remover sockets.
Send me a clear picture and diameter of the lug nut to suggest further solutions.

Were is my fuel pump relay for a 2003 Mitsubishi


The MPI relay is usually in the center console behind the radio. The ECU controls the relay, in conjunction with the ignition switch setting. Sometimes the relay wires inside the MPI can come off. Removing the MPI relay cover is quite difficult.

After removing the front lug nuts and small center nut , i am not able to remove the wheel and tire


in past experience I've seen the center of the wheel actually rust or just from normal road grime stick to the hub I had to kick the outer edge of the rim if that don't get it loose dictating on the kind of rim you have can use a pies of wood so you don't damage the rim but put the wood against outer edge of rim and hit it with a hammer will have to go back n forth from left to right side of wheel but it will come loose

please keep in mind this only works if all lug nuts are indeed off the center nut you was talking about does not hold the rim in place it hold the axel tight in the hub, which I am assuming you have a front wheel drive vehicle due to your question

Stripped lug nut holes on e38


I don't understand what you mean . The holes on the rim can not become striped its a hole it possibile it can become oblonged or other wise distorted if the lug nuts were loose for a long peiriod driveing time. But if you mean that the lug nut it self is striped on the out side or inside you can use a nut spliter or just cut it off with a saws all. The will drive out the back with a few shots with a hammer . It has a splein on its colur and is a loose press fit in eighter the brake rotor or the hub collur depending on the set up . The new stud and nut are inexpensive even if you went to a dealer

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.

Wheel wont come off, it has the custom wheels that came as an option, i took the lug nuts off but i cant tell if i have to take the center nut off


no! it must be corroded to hub, try ramming another tire into edge of it, use spare tire if possible.you can always use a sledge hammer ,but hit the inside of the tire not the rim or you might damage it.

How do I remove a locking lug nut from a 96 cavalier. There is no clearance between the nut and the rim. I cannot fit a socket or wrench around it. Is there another way without cutting it off.


You're supposed to have a key socket to remove it. There's also removal tool kit. Most tire dealers have the kit and can remove it for you.

I have a 2001 mitsubishi eclipse spyder. I need a new rim...will any 17 inch rim work...how do I figure out which ones will? I don't see any numbers on the stock rims thanks!


you should call junk yards to try to find an exact rim, cause if your rim is say 5 lug holes well other 5 lug rims may and may not fit cause the spacing on the lugs can be off by a millimeter or a 16th of an inch, your best shot will be to call a junk yard tell them you are looking for a rim for a 2001 mitsu, and they will tell you if they have one, if not most yards can get it from other places for you, or even better look on Ebay. if you dont find anything then your only other option will be to call a mitsu dealership and order one thru the parts dept.... try the junk yards first tho cause you can get it cheaper that way... the dealership will cost you a lot of money.... hope this helps you
