So we're going to show you today a really simple easy way to get those stuck lug nuts off if that happens to you. I'm here with Javier, and he's going to help demonstrate how to get off a stuck lug nut. Let's try and get one of those lug nuts off. Oh my goodness that one's stuck really good. Maybe it needs a little encouragement. What we're going to do is we're going to spray a little WD-40 or if you have liquid wrench you could use that too to try and lubricate the problem a little bit. You're going to want to let that sit for about two to five minutes. Okay, now we're going to try getting our lug nut off and applying just a little bit more leverage. We're going to put the lug nut wrench in, grab the right one with both hands, put your left foot, oop luck there, great job, boy that was easy and now see how easy it is to get the lug nut off? After you've changed your tire be sure and put your lug nuts back on tightly to secure your tire to your car. You don't have to worry about having a stuck lug nut.
