Yes aluminum rims? if so your aluminum rims ahve vulcanized themselves to your stell brake rotors. this happens with dissimilar metals. only force and heat will make it come off. you can try yourself or have a shop do it. at home jack up car , remove lug nuts. place car on jack stands with the offending wheel in the air. you will have to throw a large heavy solid wooden block to dislodge the stuck wheel. it is not easy or pretty to do.

How do i change the driver side headlight bulb on a 2000 Lexus ES300

  • Open the hood of the ES300 and prop it open.

    Look at the headlight assembly from the top down. Depending on your model year, there may be a plastic panel covering the top of the headlight assembly. If this is present, remove it by lifting all of the plastic clips around the edges and lifting it off.

    Locate the three bolts that hold the headlight assembly in place. Two of the bolts are in the left and right rear corners of the assembly, and the third is on the side bordering the outside edge of the car, screwed into the back of the fender panel. Remove all of these bolts with a small adjustable wrench. Though they appear to be designed to be removed with a screwdriver, the way they're arranged makes it almost impossible to remove them with one.

  • 4

    Slide the entire headlight assembly forward a few inches so that you can reach the back of it.

  • 5

    Unscrew the plastic bulb socket assembly. This is the large, round component located right in the middle of the back of the main assembly. Turn it about a quarter turn to the left and you can pull it away from the main assembly. If you're replacing both the bulb and the main assembly, see the next section on how to replace the bulb, then resume this process

    Remove rear brake rotors on a dodge ram 3500

    Brake rotors are pressed on just enough to where they shouldn't come off when you are changing the tire .They are held on by the same studs that hold your time on . Remove the tire and tap the rotor with a wooden or plastic malord (hammer) it should come right off. Some car makers put some small bolts on them .when you pull the tire off you can see the small bolts if they are there ,just unscrew them and the rotor will come off .

    Brakes go to floor changed master cylinder to no avail still to the floor

    ok there are a few things you need to check.. you said you changed the master cylinder.. did you bleed the braking system after???

    • remove from wheel,,
    • locate bleed valve on caliper / or unscrew one of the lines
    • pump brake and push right down and hole,,
    • repeat plugging the lines with your finger ,,
    • repeat the above 2 steps a few times
    • tighten the bleed screw while holding the brake right down..
    if that fails ...

    if that fails try adjusting the brake up.. its on the rear tires,, remove one and them remove the shield protecting the brake shoe,, see the turn bolt that adjust the pistons,, adjust that a bit until the brake is in the desired position..

    check your disc pads to see if its wron out..

    check your booster / change it..

    Right rear drum area

    You need to knock out the old ones with a hammer or use a press.
    to install them you will need either a press or a very strong air gun you can also use the hammer and pound them in. You might have to remove it from the spindle area by taking out the four bolts in the back of the drum then you can handle it better.

    Shaking in the rear of car when accelerating this is a lexus gs 430 with only 24700 miles

    It's a possible that one of the rear tires is out of balance. The vehicle has very low miles put on it. So, everything should still be covered under warranty.
    Have the tires check out. If this doesn't solve the problem, take the Lexus to the dealership. The warranty should cover any problems.
