SOURCE: 300zx front brakes.

Nothing more special than a basic metric socket set, a good size C-clamp, and maybe a screwdriver. Remove the wheel and unbolt the caliper from the hub (two bolts on the backside, I believe 17mm). Remove the brake fluid reservoir cap. Slide the caliper off the rotor and remove the outer pad. Use the C-clamp against the inner pad to compress the pistons back into the caliper to provide clearance for the new, thicker pads to clear the rotor. Do the same for the outer pistons. Install the new pads, remount the caliper, and put the wheel back on. Replace the fluid cap, pump up the brake pedal for pressure, then take it out and bed the pads in with several back to back stops from 30mph with steady, even pressure on the pedal. You'll be good to go at that point.

SOURCE: How to replace front rotors

You'll need to take the wheel bearings off. the rotors are bolted to the hub and the bolts are located in the back of the hub thus having to remove the wheel bearings and removed the hub/rotor assy.

Just get the right tire range to fit the lug nut size. You
must replace your existing tire range. It's the only way.

I have a flat tire, but do not have the special tool to take off the bolt. Any ideas? 2010 Honda CRV


Most auto parts stores have Locking Lug Nut removal tools. If you know the size of your lug nut you may be able to buy a single tool that fits on a standard ratchet to remove the locking lug nut. If your lug nut is the type that spins without the proper tool to remove it, your best bet is a mechanic with the proper equipment to avoid doing damage to the wheel or stud.

Good luck!

Cannot get the rear flat tire off of 1995 chevy cavalier. Do I need a special tool for this?


You should only need a standard lug nut wrench to remove the wheel, unless you have a lock nut (usually one nut is different) and it requires a 'key' to remove that one nut-if they are all the same, however, you just need a lug wrench with the correct size to remove them.

I am trying to change the tire but there is some kind of lock on the nuts? one nut is different than the other...what's up?


Thats a wheel lock to prevent theft.
Look in the trunk, or glove box to see if there is a special tool that fits the nut.
Some times its clipped to the lug wrench

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.

I can't find the "key" or "star tool" to remove the wheel


Sounds like a previous owner replaced some of the lug nuts with security type which require a special adapter to fit the lug wrench.
A tire shop or the car dealer might be able to supply the adapter.
