    Yes!!! I have a couple of wheels that either have a broken one or one that is missing. I dont want to be driving it with only 3 lugs on some of the tires. I've seen a post on how to change the fronts but I am not too sure about the back tires.

    Thanks

As for the rear lug nut studs. Remove the drum by taking the dust cap and the nut off. Once the drum is off lay it down studs up and just give the studs 2 or 3 good hits with a hammer. They should just pop out. To install is just the oposite. Flip the drum over and put it on 2 blocks of wood. 2 2 X 4's worked for me. Put the stud into the hole and using a punch and a hammer, tap the stud into place. should take 2 or 3 good hits. And incase you are wondering what type of lug nut stud to get the stud is a 10 X 1.25. Hope that helps you.

07 nissan sentra valve stem leaking


I'm assuming it is a TPMS sensor valve stem? I do not know o any reason the rim would break when replacing it, unless the rim was already cracked around the valve stem hole due to some kind o impact, in which case, the rim should be replaced anyway. As far as fixing it yourself. Unless you can break down the bead seat of the tire and unmount the tire from the rim, you will not be able to replace it yourself. Once the tire is of the rim, the sensor is held in place by a 11mm or a 12mm hex collar. When you remove this collar, the sensor will pull right out from the inside. ANY tire shop should be able to do this for you for very little charge.

My 2000 Mercury Cougar V6 is blowing white smoke in the morning, and loosing a little coolant. I think it should be the head or plenum gasket, or more likely a worn valve stem stem seal. I'm looking for...


You have a blown Head Gasket, if you have had leaky Valve Stem Seal the color of the smoke would be blue, for the burning oil. Either way it is more beneficial in the long run to pull the Head off and replace both the Head Gasket and install a re-built Head, instead of doing a Band-Aid repair.

How do u replace lugnut bolt on front tire 2000


Hi,
The lugs are generally pressed into the rotor. They have a fluted shank which prevents them from turning when you torque the lugnuts. If you are going to do this job yourself, they can be driven out with a punch. The new replacement can be drawn into position with the lugnut, but you might need to utilize some spacers and washers to do this.
I've performed this operation before with the rotor still on the vehicle.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

My other half has broken his locking wheel nut key for his escort gti where can iget a replacement


you have to call the manufacturer and give the the number on the lugnut and they will sell you another. about $25. Been there done that. Another option is to buy a socket that you hammer onto the lugnut. It grips the lugnut and you can then use a ratchet to get it off. you do have to replace the lugnuts after doing this. the socket was $8 at Oriellys.
