Review Q&A bmw lug nuts

What are the basic steps to change a tire?

Locate spare, jack, and tools. Make sure that the spare has air, or you're going nowhere. If you have locking lug nuts, find the key — it should be in the spare kit, glove box, or center console. Loosen the lug nuts. This will require a long, solid tug at the wrench. Put the wide end of the jack on the ground near the bad tire, and the notch in the small end up against the metal flange protruding from the bottom of the car. Jack up the car Remove lug nuts and the wheel. If you are driving a Mercedes, BMW, Volvo, or similar, you will have lug bolts, which are a bit trickier, though still fairly intuitive. Replace with spare tire, reversing step 5. Put all of the parts back in the car, and drive to a service station. I find ,Sir Ian McKellan's version, a bit easier to remember.

As an auto mechanic, which automobile brand is the most difficult to do repairs on?

Not a auto mechanic but I've done work on Dodges, Ford, Chrysler, Volkswagen, and BMWs. Hands down one of the hardest brand is the VW because there's no interchangeable parts and proprietary lug nuts. It was cheaper to do work on a BMW and according to our old mechanic replacing a clutch on a VW can be a nightmare because you literally have to disassemble the entire bottom of the car. A BMW you usually just drop the engine and do it. However personally Chryslers are difficult to work on as well for the same reason.

How many pounds of torque do you need to tighten lug nuts?

Torque is measured in lb ft (pound feet) or Newton meter, not pounds or newtons. [5 lbs at 2ft is twice as much as 5lbs at 1ft, so you need to know the length of the bar applying the force]. Then it will obviously depend on the vehicle. On my Van it is 200 Nm / 150 lb ft. On the BMW Z4 120 Nm/90 lb ft. On my Peugeot 207 SW: 100 Nm / 74 lb ft.

Why does Volkswagen use wheel bolts instead of lug nuts? What other car makers do this?

Lets see. All my Peugeots have wheel bolts. My BMW 520i Tourer had wheel bolts, My Citroen van has wheel bolts. My Ford Escort Mk4 had wheel bolts. My Vauxhall Astra (1995) and Corsa (2002) had wheel bolts. I think the last cars I owned that had wheel nuts rather than bolts were my 1971 Rover P5B and my 1965 Series IIa Landrover. Wheel nuts are a rare thing these days, especially with alloy wheels.

I had two front tires replaced on my BMW. The shop owner broke two lug nuts during the process and didn’t even bother telling me. Is he liable for the damages he caused while replacing my tires?

Ok first of all, BMW’s (and the rest of Europe), don’t use wheel nuts, they use wheel bolts. Really really dumb. the conical will sieze to the rim if over torqued and the spec is actually very low 65 to 75 ft lb. I see guys use an impact to tighten them an average cheap impact will tighten up 300ft lb. Now I come along and have to remove them, with my 60 inch (yes 5 foot) Snap On breaker bar. I had 48 inch Matco bar but it broke. Yes the shop should have informed you prior to them going any futher, and at the very least should have replaced the bolts, they are not expensive, I have a box of them and would have done so without billing you. A few years ago I posted a question to BMW as to why they use bolts instead of studs and nuts. their response; to hold the wheels on. You will notice that on their factory race cars low and behold studs and nuts.

Are BMW lug nuts reverse threads?

BMW does not use lugnuts. They use bolts. If they're reverse you're doing something wrong.

Why is there no spare tyre provided in a BMW car?

Because they have decided, a la Apple, what is best for their customer, regardless of life’s realities. BMW cites a low frequency of punctures for most drivers, and obviously prefers to save weight and complexity by not only eliminating spare tires, but the items that accompany them and the space required to store them. Many of the responses here and elsewhere on the web speak of better performance, or folks not even knowing how to change a tire or “being strong enough to remove the lug nuts.” Hmmm, okay. I am in the market for a new vehicle. I really like BMWs, and have been considering models in the 2-series and 4-series lines. But this is a deal-breaker for me. It’s one thing to only offer run-flats, it’s another to actually have absolutely no provision for spare tire storage. The owner would be expected to supply their own spare wheel and tire, and then use up valuable trunk space carting it around (instead of tucked “below deck” in a compartment). If you live in a big city, and never stray from an urban environment, maybe the run-flat solution makes sense for you. If you live, like I do, in the American West, where it can be a great distance between towns (much less a city large enough to have a suitable replacement tire), the limited distance that a run-flat provides for is insufficient. In short, I have to travel distances between cities exceeding the recommendations for driving on run-flats. Imagine how delightful it would be traveling across a desert or through the mountains in your shiny new BMW, and getting a puncture. 50 or more miles to the nearest community (a village of a few dozen people, no tire shop). The nearest actual town with a tire shop might be quite a bit further, not to mention whether they actually had a tire that fit in stock. SO much easier to slap a spare on and order or obtain a tire when you reach “civilization” once again. Not all of us spend our time in ready proximity to convenient urban services. It’s a shame. BMW is one of the few marques that still have hand brakes, and offer manual trannies, in a sporty sedan. I’m not willing to roll the dice on their expensive run-flat tires. [For those wondering, look on a map. Check Old Horse Springs along Hwy 12, or Emory Pass along Hwy 152 in the Black Range. Or Counselor along Hwy 550 (~ 100 miles to Farmington to the NW or Bernalillo to the SE).]

What is something that almost nobody knows about the Porsche 911?

What is something that almost nobody knows about the Porsche 911? I’ve been driving 911s for almost 50 years, and I have spent more time driving them than all other types of cars combined. My current daily driver: is a 1973.5 911T to which I have made a number of bolt-on modifications which make it suitable for daily use in 2019 in southern California. We also have a newer 911, which my wife uses. That car (a 993) is much more refined, but I find this ‘73 to be the most enjoyable to drive. It has a light, nimble and responsive feeling that the newer and heavier 911s can’t quite match. The 1973 911S: was the highest performance version of the 911 sold in the US that year. 911s are produced in relatively small numbers when compared to cars such as Fords and Mercedes-Benzs, so few people have had the opportunity to become familiar with them. Since little about the 911 is conventional, there is much about it that most people don’t know about. I would venture to say that the 1973 911S defined, in many ways, the state of the art in the early 1970s for high performance automobiles. It has an air-cooled overhead camshaft engine with light-alloy (magnesium) crankcase and transmission case, cast iron cylinder sleeves with light alloy jackets, hemispheric combustion chambers, dry sump engine lubrication and capacitive discharge ignition, generating 77 HP net per liter (1.26 HP per cubic inch), quite an achievement for a street-legal car in the early 1970s. Even the cooling fan was made from magnesium. The car, which weighs less than 2400 pounds, has a fully independent suspension and runs on forged aluminum wheels, light and very strong, held in place by aluminum lug nuts. One may quibble about some of the design choices, such as the rear engine placement, as critics have been doing for decades, but the level of technology in the car was unexcelled by any of its competitors. To cite a couple of comparisons as examples, Ferrari was still using carburetors and the Maserati Ghibli and Alfa Spyder had live rear axles. The air-cooled engine used in 911s through 1998 might also reasonably be described as oil-cooled, since a substantial amount of heat is removed from thermostatically-controlled oil coolers through which the oil is pumped. This is true of other air-cooled engines as well, such as the VW flat four and the air-cooled piston engines used in aircraft. In fact, the air cooled engine used in 911s until 1999 is built more like an aircraft engine than a typical automobile engine, with two crankcase halves split vertically. In the 1980s Porsche developed a version of the engine specifically for use in small aircraft and it was certified by the FAA for aviation use. It was available installed in the Mooney airframe. Wards Auto, an American organization that has covered the automotive industry for over 80 years, has included the Porsche air-cooled flat-6 on its list of the ten best engines of the 20th century, along with such icons as the VW air-cooled Beetle engine, the 1932 Ford flat-head V8 and the 1968 BMW straight-six cylinder engine. No other engines from exotic or sports car manufacturers were on the list. The original 2 liter 130 HP flat-six engine has shown a seemingly endless capacity for development, and by the end of its production in 1998, street-legal versions were built with displacements up to 3.6 liters and power ratings as high as 425 HP. The 911 is arguably the most versatile and successful sports car in history. It and dedicated competition cars derived from it have consistently accumulated trophies in a wide range of competition, from road rallies and track racing to cross-country races such as the Paris-Dakar competion. A car derived from the 1973 911S (the Carrera RSR) was the overall winner at the 24 hours of Daytona in 1973, beating Ferraris, Lolas and Corvettes. It won not because it was faster than some of those cars but because it didn’t break, and the reliability of Porsches has been the key to many victories. In the Car of the Century survey to determine the most influential car of the 20th century, the Porsche 911 placed fifth on the list (the Ford Model T was first). No other exotic or sports car appeared on the final list of five cars. Routine maintenance is not difficult for the properly equipped and motivated owner, but in a number of ways it is unlike that for conventional cars. Oil capacity may be as much as 13 or 14 quarts, so when changing oil be prepared for lots of oil, which will come out in torrents. One must drain not only the crankcase, but a separate oil tank. The oil filter is located on the right sidewall of the engine compartment, not on the engine itself. The owner’s manual provides detailed instructions about performing maintenance tasks such as valve adjustments and in places almost reads like a shop manual. The 911′s 40/60 front/rear weight distribution differs greatly from the conventional ideal of 50/50. However, any such choice, including this conventional ideal, is a compromise. The 911′s weight distribution is ideal for both acceleration and braking. The weight distribution gives it somewhat unusual handling characteristics, and, although these can bite the uninitiated, they can be used to great advantage by a skilled driver. The original factory air conditioning was known for not being very effective. However, it can be modified to work well. My 911T’s air conditioning keeps the car comfortable even when outside temperatures exceed 110 degrees F. 421_911_surprises 04-03-2019 Addendum One might think from my answer that technical innovation was limited to the early 911s. That is not the case. In 1974 Porsche introduced the 911 Turbo, which became the fastest street car available at the time. Although a few previous cars had turbochargers, none captured the imagination the way the 911 Turbo did. This fascination led to marketing people using the Turbo designation for everything from gas barbecue grills to tax preparation software. In 1986 Porsche introduced the 911-based 959, the world’s first supercar: When introduced it was the most sophisticated street-legal sports car ever built, and was described by reviewers as being ten to twenty years ahead of its time. It had computer-controlled four-wheel drive, a 2.8 liter flat six with sequential turbochargers and water-cooled heads generating 444 HP and an aluminum/composite body. These were not originally sold in the United States but can now legally be imported. In 1986 three 959s were entered in the Paris-Dakar rally. Two of the cars finished first and second overall. The third car, driven by the support mechanics, finished sixth. These cars were sold at a significant loss by Porsche, but generated so much consulting business that Porsche eventually made a significant profit as a result of the program. Porsche switched to liquid cooled flat sixes for the 1999 model year 911s. The current 911 remains one of the most sophisticated sports cars available from any manufacturer. Although all of the descendants of the original 911 are generally referred to as 911s, specific series of cars also have their own internal factory designation numbers which are often used by knowledgeable people to refer to them. The 911 Turbo is often referred to as the 930. The series of 911s made from 1989 through 1994 are 964s and the last version of the air-cooled 911 is called the 993. The first liquid-cooled 911, made from 1997 through 2006 is designated as the 996 and was followed by the 997, from 2004 through 2012, and subsequently by the 991. The 992 will debut later in 2019. 04-07-2019

What is your personal experience with long term reliability of any of Tesla’s vehicles?

I presently have a 2014 Sedan P85+ with ~ 46K miles and the service and reliability have been excellent. I have previously owned a 2003 BMW with 130K miles, 1995 Lexus with 120K and various Toyotas all driven for 10+ years and over 100K miles. Each of these cars have been very reliable, some with unique quirks and design flaws, but overall a high standard of comparison. In the time I’ve owned the Tesla, there have been minor problems with the “Presentation Handles” not working due to a known flawed part, which Tesla immediately replaced. The S also had an intermittent input error on the steering wheel button activating the voice recognition for GPS and music. Again, it was replaced without any pushback. Routine service is a breeze, as basically they check wear on a few items (tires, brakes, etc), do some electronic diagnostics and then replace a few air filters. No oil change or any other fluids to flush or replace. Takes a few hours. I’m told that electric cars have approximately 10% of mechanical parts of traditional vehicles, therefore there is less to diagnose, maintain or replace. So far, that corresponds with my experience. My experience with Tesla customer service is that it has deteriorated significantly in the past few years. It is nearly impossible to speak with a person, many items that I think should be covered under warranty are not (“Normal wear and tear” is the explanation on even lug nut replacements. Really? Since when do lug nuts wear out?) and if you don’t like Tesla’s new brand of service, too bad. There is no alternative. They have not authorized independent repair shops or distribute their replacement parts. This is a serious drawback to the Tesla ownership experience.
