In Reply to: Flat Tire!! :( Need help ... posted by Mark on November 25, 1999 at 09:07:47:

: Hey guys, I have a flat and the car is sitting here in my driveway. The peculiar thing is that I can't get the damn lugs off. I don't know if they torqued them on too tight or if I'm getting weak. :(

: Anyway, has anyone used the roadside assistance? I wanted to know how it works, and the cost related to it?

: I Could ask my local gasstation to send someone over, but if roadside assitance is free, then I'd rather go that route.

: So If anyone can lend some help, I'd really appreciate it.

: M.

Those wheels are overtorqued. Use a breaker bar to loosen then retighten to 72 foot pounds, I believe, check owner's manual.
