#1 of 36 Removing the Hub
Dec 17, 2007 (7:54 pm)
I have a 1994 Metro and have 2 broken wheel studs in the front. I removed the tire, the 4 bolts to the rotor and the hub bolt was removed. Why doesn't the hub come off? The hub has to come off to replace the studs but what do I need to do? Thinking I have to use a slide hammer puller but I only have two lugs to mount the puller to.
#2 of 36 93 Geo Metro...Wheels bowing out, or in!!
Jan 26, 2008 (1:25 am)
I have a 93 Geo Metro 4 door Hatchback. It's been a very reliable car and very easy on gas. A few months back, I started hearing a knocking sound coming from the right side. Mostly while I was sitting at a red light, or when I would put it in reverse. One day as I was turning a corner it made a funny sound. A few miles down the road, it started shaking and I thought I had a flat tire. I pulled over and looked and the tire was not flat. I called road side assistance and had it towed. I haven't been able to drive it since. Can anyone please help me to understand what the problem might be? I've heard a couple people say it might be the A frame. Or maybe it needs new tires and an alignment.

#6 of 36 Geo Metro spare tire compatibility
Feb 17, 2008 (1:57 pm)
I have a 1997 Geo Metro which has been converted to electric drive, and the spare tire well is full of batteries. No spare was provided with the vehicle when I bought it. I want one, as I regularly drive 20 mile trips. I've posted on usedpartscentral.com, but was wanting to look on ebay as well. I see a couple of spares available for other model years (92, 91). Wondering what the compatibility is. Thanks. Also, when was the metro turned from the Geo brand to the Chevy brand? That will help my searches.

Just a bit of info for all U people with 12in tires...
We have a 92 Geo Metro and it sat dead in the water for some months because of not finding the ever so popular 12in tires it needed that are so hard to find.
We have come to learn that 13in tires and rims with the right bolt pattern will work just bueatifully.
The measurements are side to side 3 1/4 and across 4 1/2. the rims can come from a mid 70's dodge colt, Plymouth horizon, I believe even some volkswagens also... Hope this helps, wish I'd of known it sooner I almost thought of getting rid of the car at one point because of not finding 12in tires...

I have a 92 metro with 328,000 miles . To check your allignment you will need a tool to measure the inside distance between both front tires in the front and the distance between the wheels at the back. I use two thin pieces of wood taped together in such a way as to the slide on each other to be able to place it on the wheel forward edge of both wheels. slide the two pieces out so that it is snug. where the two pieces are next to each other mark across both pieces with a pencil. you will use this measurement along with the measurement you get from doing this at the rims closest to the back of the car. take the measurements let say 40" front and 39" back. this will show that you have toe out of one inch. there are jam nut on both tie rods going to both wheels . loosen them and depending on toe out or toe in you can make your adjustments. check and recheck. around 1/4" toe in is good. I have used this procedure on numerous vehicles and it works great . one set of tires lasted me 88,000 highway miles and my steering wheel is dead on. also keep in mind that it is best to have the car on ramps with weight on the front end due to some cars will vary toe in/out with car in air or on ground. if your steering wheel is straight, or if your car pulls to one side or the other or if your steering wheel is of and your car does not pull, then you have to see what it takes to correct this. questions reply I will help you if I can. I have seen just about all combinations including a cadillac that would wear out a tire in one week , it had hit a curb at high speed. i was able to correct it with just alligning it
