Go to a tire store or auto mechanic and ask them to use an air gun to loosen the nuts. Re-tighten them by hand.

I traded for a 1991 Z71. the 4 wheel drive will not engage. I replaced the actuator, but still won't work. The light by the shifter does not work either. Any ideas?


This may be totally unrelated but having just traded, check your tires to assure that all four are exactly the same size. With 4 wheel drive it is crucial.

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.

How do you change the wheel studs on the front wheels? are the bearings pressed in or are conected by something?


The wheel studs are a press fit design, in the trade we usually pound them out with a hammer and then 'press' the new ones in by using shims and a old wheel nut to pull them back into the hub with an impact gun. I believe on that car the wheelbrearings are pressed in.

Cant take the wheel off


Spray the base of the lug nuts liberally with penetrating lubricant and let it sit overnight. Break the nuts loose with a lug wrench or a breaker bar -do not jack the car up yet. Break the nuts loose while all 4 tires are on the ground with the full weight of the car on them. Jack the car up once they are loosened to remove the wheel. To reinstall the wheel, snug down the nuts with wheel off the ground, then drop the car on down completely and tighten the nuts to factory ratings

Vechile will not shift into park or reverse


The first thing to check is the linkage. Sometimes the linkage will slip, Block the wheels on the car (both front and rear) to prevent rolling. Locate the shift linkage on your transmission, and loosen the nut. You should be able to move the shift lever through all the gears, including "P" and "R". Place the transmission shift lever in "Park" (on the transmission) then move the shift lever (inside the car) in the "P" position and tighten the nut (not a bad idea to use a new locking nut here) You should now be able to shift through all gears. If this does not work, you have a more serious problem that may include a worn or broken belt or broken parking pawl inside the transmission.

Cant turn hub nut on front wheel on 99 ford focus tried heat and 10w40 no good any ideas? i am trying to check the wheel bearing by moving axle to the side and spinning hub


Focus is Front wheel drive, the bearing is NOT adjustable.
the nut you're trying to losten is a lock nut and either takes a Huge extension bar, or an air impact.
It's not supposed to be loostened. if there's any slack or noise the whole bearing assy needs replacing
leave it alone

You may have a loose shift linkage in the steering column. Remove the upper and lower plastic covers behind the steerong wheel (5 or 6 philips head) and see if you have any loose torx head or allen head screws. Ea
rlier models had this isue.

What should torque be on the large bolt that holds the front hub assembly/wheel bearings onto front axle?


don't have exact # for that one, but generally anything better than 75lbs is enough...most shops just use an airgun on it and don't have any problems...One rule...Don't back off on nut if you have a cotter pin that needs to be installed. Always tighten further to align holes. On ones that don't have pin, use new nut only...it has an "interference" thread that helps keep it in place...once removed it looses that feature to some extent. Sounds like "backyard" advice but have done this for years and haven't lost one yet!
Good luck!
