If you havnt got the locknut key,then use an old socket and hammer it onto the nut head until it jams on then undo,before you take it off fully, hit it sideways to remove the socket for the next nut.you will destroy the socket,the other way is to use a nut splitter.

How to undo left hand back wheel studs?


With the car on flat and level ground with a wheel chocked, slacken off a little with the wheel wrench anticlockwise. Then jack the car up. You can stand on the wrench if it is a good fit.

If you really mean remove the studs themselves rather than the nuts, there are two ways. Lock two nuts tightly together and undo, or use a stud remover which grips the non-threaded part.

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.

I need help replacing rear struts on a 2004 dodge stratus sedan


jack up the car and take off the wheel. go through the trunk and remove the trunk liner from the wheel well area. remove the two nuts off either of the center, dont remove the center one yet. now you remove the bolt from the bottom of the strut and remove the strut assy. you can buy new struts as a complete assy. or you will have to use a spring compressor and compress the spring until it is loose from the spring pad, then remove the nut from the top of the strut and it comes apart. a lot of times the rear mount goes bad on these cars and it makes noise on the bumps. it doesnt mean the strut is bad. you can check the strut by pushing the rod in and pulling it out, there should be steady resistance. any easy spots and the strut is no good. gas struts should fully extend by themselves from the gas pressure, if they dont, they are bad.

My jag was purchased used and there is no key for the wheel locks. I need help in finding out who manufactured the locks. Dealer does not know.


It will be cheaper to go to a tyre shop where any good outlet has special tools to destructively remove locking wheel nuts without the key. Then just buy a new set of locking wheel nuts to replace them with. Even if you knew who manufactured them you'd need the pattern number and proof of ownership and you'd find that a spare key often costs more than a complete new set of locking nuts.

You can buy so called "universal" locking wheel nut removers yourself quite cheaply on ebay, but they often fail to work and can damage your wheels and then leave the nut far harder to remove using the correct and expensive trade-only tools.

you need to get the wheel lugnut wrench out of the trunk or under the hood and take off the wheel cover nuts (the plastic ones you can turn by hand) Then you should have access to your wheel locks...
