When you get the lugs off try kicking the tire. What happens is, over time from driving the wheels "stick" to the hub. You will probably have to kick the tire REALLY HARD to knock it loose.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

My brakes keep locking up on 2001 ford taurus what causing it?


Could be sticking disc brake caliper(s), or sticking rear wheel cylinder(s). If one wheel locks up before the others, that would likely be the problem caliper or cylinder, since that brake wouldn't fully disengage, and would therefore be dragging (which would accelerate the wear on those brake pads or shoes, also).

If you turn the steering wheel in either direction and the key switch does not free up , then you need to have the lock cylnder replaced.

2001 ford focus steering is lock, how to unlock it? this is the third time it happened.is this serious?


When you try to start the car does the key seem stuck, not turning? Occasionally I have to turn the steering wheel just a little before the key will turn. Always try to straighten your front wheels when you park before turning off the car, this puts less strain on the locking part of the steering wheel and makes it easier to start the car next time. The serious part of a steering wheel is the air bag, do not try to disassemble the steering wheel yourself, you may want to take it to a mechanic you trust in case an interior part of your steering wheel needs replacing.

That's my guess.

Tire off


Hi

Assuming you haven't missed a wheelnut, then you can either whack the wheel with your spare wheel (tyre against tyre), or, if you're feeling brave, you can sit behind the car facing the inside of the stuck wheel and kick it off, but only if you've got the car securely supported on an axle stand.
