Question about Little Tikes Cozy Coupe

Made a mistake! Need to remove rear wheel axel but it's stuck

Someone please help! My husband mistakenly put the hub cap on backwards so that the rear axel rod of this coupe is too short on the left side. Somehow though the axel is on really really tight and I'm having trouble removing it to fix the hub cap. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to rectify? This is a replacement for another coupe I bought my daughter which she LOVES and I would love to get this car installed asap. Thank you!

The caps are a type of "acorn nut". Check a local hardware store (not the big guys) for this type of fastener and bring the shaft with you to get the correct size. These should not cost more than about $.50 each.

shows which replacement parts are available from Little Tikes, and I don't see the one you're looking for. I tried to call their Consumer Services line at 1-800-321-0183, but they're open M-F from 8 am to 8 pm and Sat 9 am to 2 pm, EST. Please give them a call tomorrow.
An alternative might be to take the piece to a hardware store and see if they have anything that might work as a replacement.
Hope this helps!

I have a 1980 Chevy 3/4 ton I am trying to replace the rear brakes and can seem to remove the brake drum. Is there a trick to removing these?


Depending on which rear axle it has you may have a drum that is mounted inboard of the hub meaning that the the drum is held onto the hub with the wheel studs from the inside. To remove this type of drum you have to remove the axle shafts, hub bearing retaining nut, and the hub/drum assembly to get at the brakes. If the drum is mounted on the outboard side of the hub then it may just be stuck onto the hub or, if the drum is loose but just can't be removed then the brake shoes may be hanging up on the lip worn on the inside of the drum. The brake shoes would need to be backed off through the inspection/adjuster hole so the drum will slide over them. Hope this helps a bit and good luck!

I was going to replace a wheel brake cylinder on my rear axel. I thought I could just pull off the hub to get to the brake assembly but there is a bolted on cap and screwed on plate on the end of the...


Some cars/trucks have the hub mounted with screws/bolts. You will have to remove them to get the hub off. You may need a rubber mallet to beat on the hub a little to get it to come off past the groove the brake pads may have made in the hub. After you get the hub off, take a picture of the brake components so you will know where everything goes once you start removing parts. Once you remove the springs, stuff will shift around and fall out on you so be careful and try to notice where everything goes as it is removed. If you run into problems during reassembly, you can always remove the hub on the other side to get pointers on where everything should go. Good luck.

Rear wheel bearing


if its like the 99 winstar:

safely support the van, remove rear wheel, remove brake drum, remove grease cap. remove caged locknut assembly (38mm socket i think.) then pull the hub assembly from the axel. you may need to cut away the inner race if the bearing falls apart. clean axel, apply alittle anti size compound, then push on the new hub assembly. tighten down the hub nut to specifications (should be on the leaflet in the new bearing package), install dust cap, install drum, install wheel, lower and drive :)

I'am trying to take the transaxle out of the transmission to fix an oil leak


Remove the wheel cover and loosen the drive axel hub nut. loosen the the wheel lug nuts raise the vehicle and support it well. NOTE: you will have to be working under the car be very careful. remove the drive axel hub nut. To prevent the hub from turning, insert a screwdriver thru the brake caliper and into one of the cooling slots on the rotor. remove the control arm-to-steering knuckle. Check for the ABS sensor and remove it out of your way. Separate the drive axel from the hub. If stuck remove the brake caliper and rotor. Push the axel out of the hub with a puller or you can use a good solid broom handle and drive it out. If you are removing the right side axel you will need a slide hammer and adaptor to separate the axel from the trans. If you are removing the left side, carefully pry the axel out of the trans. with a large pry-bar positioned between the inner CV joint and the trans. case. Use the subframe as a pivot point. Hold the CV joints so they do not separate inside the rubber if going to reuse them. Lubricate the new seal with multi-purpose grease before you install it.

Won't go into gear, won't move


Sounds like the transmission.. If the axel was broke most likely it would still go into gear quite easy.. Bad axel would cause bad shimmy in front end.. Suggestion would be to take to a transmission shop and have checked out..

Rear Wheel Bearing Repair; 2005 pontiac aztek


Remove the brake caliper
Remove the disc, (rotor)
Remove the 34mm nut on the axel shaft
Remove the three (3) bolts from the back side
You will need a wheel puller (three jaw will work well)
Place the puller over the hub and tighten, this will push the shaft out of the hub. Now you have to pull the hub assy. out of the mounting bracket. I found hitting each side,of the hub with a lead hammer to work well. Don't forget to disconnect the ABS senser on the back side of the hub assy.
Do not over tighten the 34mm axel nut when you install the new assy. If you use an impact whrench on it you will damage the bearing.

Need to replace wheels on sons power wheels kawasaki brute force fisher price car. i have the wheels but have no idea how to remove old ones and put new ones on. thanks


I just replaced the wheels on the red Fisher Price Kawasaki Brute Force. First use a screw driver to pop off the grey middle nut cover. Then pull of the locking nut with black cap that is under the grey cover you just removed.

Once that is removed the wheel comes right off. There are 4 phillips screws holding the hubs together. Unscrew those and the hubs separate into to pieces (one on each side of the wheel).
Simply place the hubs into the replacement wheels and screw back together. Slide the new wheel on (make sure the washer is still on the rear side of axel).

My replacement wheels actually came with the black replacement locking nuts taped to them. Hammer the replacement locking back on the alex, pop the grey hub cover back on and you are done.

If you are missing the locking nuts, take one of the originals you removed with you to the hardware store and you should have no problem getting them. - MTRAGE
