2005 dodge stratus front wheel. Stripped lugnut ca - 2q==Get one of these lug nut removal tools. Do not get a cheap one, get one that is strong enough to slightly cut the lug nut and bite down into the metal. Start working it with a breaker bar and a hammer to get an initial bite. switch to an impact wrench and take it off. WD-40 or some other penetrating oil will help a bit, but make sure the lug nut surface itself is not dripping (the tool you just got will slip off of it).

The other method is to use a rotary tool and carefully begin to cut the lug nut metal. Be careful not to gouge the lug itself, or you'll have to replace that too (done it myself).

I took the lugnuts off of the tire on the 1999 mercury cougar i bought but still cant get the tire off. Any reason why?


ist rusted onto the hub. you can try kicking it with your foot or putting the lug nuts on loose and then roll the car slowly until the wheel comes off. At the shop we all have large plastic dead-blow hammers just for whacking wheels off of cars!

You need to remove the left front tire. Remove the plastic keepers on the panel that you see there inside the wheel well, the battery is behind that panel, disconnect the negative post cable 1st then the positive and then the retainer block and slide the battery straight out and back

Should there be a snap ring holding rotors in place on a 1999 dodge stratus?I get front end shaking at certain speeds.


Have the front end checked by a mechanic. The problem could be wheel balancing, front end alignment, broken tire belt or a number of related things. The rotors are held in place by the wheel lug nuts. Good luck!

I have dodge stratus 2001 and I need to change the battery i couldn't find where it is


Front driver's side, black plastic panel towards the front of the driver's side fender. Jack the car and take the wheel off. There are 5 fastners that are there that need to be rotated counter-clockwise a quarter turn. Wiggle that panel out....there's the battery. A bracket keeps it in place, one bolt, one nut. Remove that and the battery slides right out. It is easier to remove it by taking off the tire but you CAN remove the battery with the wheel on. Just turn the wheels all the way to the right, like a hard right hand turn.
