Mechanics - help plz

I have a 2005 Hyundai Sante Fe. It needs the front disc brakes replaced. So, I bought the brakes and went home to change them.

I loosened the lug nuts and jacked up the Sante Fe using my 2 ton hydraulic jack. Once up, I took off the lug nuts and attempted to remove the passenger side wheel. Nothing, it would no budge.

After wiggling it around awhile to no avail, I finally gave up on that side I tried the other side but still had the same exact problem.

I have driven cars for 22 years and never, not once, have I ever had this kind of problem. Is there something that I'm missing here?

IMO, You have a dissimilar metals reaction between the alloy wheels and the iron hub and they've become corroded together. Hit it with a BFH.

the problem with a hammer is where to hit it. for a novice i would sit on the ground with the lugnuts off and kick the tire. you can really **** up an aluminum wheel with a hammer

Yeah, I'd use a short 2x4 as the thing to actually hit with the hammer. But you most likely have a better solution since this is your profession.

Maybe too obvious of a question, but does the car have some sort of anti tire theft lock you haven't disabled?

I had this problem with my wife's Camry last year, as Brock said it's because of the alloy wheels. I ended up soaking them with penetrating oil for several hours and then beat them off with a hammer and pry bar. Those son of bitches were stuck on so bad we'd have been screwed if we had a flat in the middle of nowhere. Now anytime I have the wheels off any of our vehicles I always put a coat of grease between the wheel and hub before I put them back on.

i agree with you, i have no idea how mechanically inclined he is. if I said it and he totally ruined his $100+ dollar wheel...... you know the rest



Seriously kicking it should remove it.


at the shop i have an old splitting maul to use on those REAL tough ones. usually a 48 oz plastic deadblow to the inner lip does the trick

PLEASE dont put that grease on your lugnuts. it makes them REAL hard to torque accurately. AND YES i habd torque EVERY lugnuts that comes off in my shop. if you want a job there it is a must

Both wheels? Weird. I believe they are both aluminum alloy.

That's what I wondered. I have never seen anything like this. But the owner manual does not mention anything about that in the changing tire section.
