- I always add a tiny bit of wheel bearing grease (about one drop). This way next time it is easier. Have used this trick for 30 years.

- Don't scratch the paint work with your breaker bar!

- A guy on youtube used floor jack to undo the AXLE NUT and it work, see video below...
cn90, good to see you again. I still owe you for the relay. I'd still be glad to paint a car for you. This is my V70... with a few extra pieces...

Great picture.. quite a lot of interesting mods going on there.. Can't imagine you get much life out of the tires though. ;-)

Ultimately the lugs shouldn't be on that tight... In a jam this is a great idea.

Thanks. You can't see the interior mods in that painting... like... I replaced the CEL.

Should replace that with one that says FCP =P

When I buy any used car, this is what I do for the wheels to avoid seized wheels:

1. Jack up each wheel.
2. Remove all the lugs and remove the wheel.
If the wheel is seized onto the hub (snow area with salt), there is trick in forum to undo it, search for the tricks.
3. Apply anti-seize around the hub bore. Also a bit of anti-seize on each lug (about "one drop" of anti-seize).
4. Now your wheel can be replaced in the middle of nowhere without being seized.
