Change a flat tire

I don't have a manual to my 1998 toyota 4runner and my front tire is flat. I have taken off all of my lug nuts, but the tire still won't budge. Is there another nut under the center cap? i can't seem to get the metal cap off though. any suggestions?

The wheel is just rusted on the hub. Just take a rubber mallet and hit a few times. Or kick it a few times. This is a very common thing.

Fix a flat tire

All tools should be included in your car. Spare tire: underside of trunk, tools: under access panel inside on right, handle: engine compartment. They are listed in the owner's manual, under 'changing the tires'. They include a jack, a lug wrench, and most likely a 'key' that looks like a heavy socket. You will need it to loosen the one lug not that (likely) looks different from the others. Loosening the lug nuts with standard (car) equipment can be difficult. Much easier if you can get/borrow an X type lug wrench.
How to do it? mostly common sense, really. First, make sure the spare has sufficient pressure, otherwise you're wasting your time. Some basic cautions: park on firm and level ground, secure from roll-away, be aware of other motorists and other hazards. Detailed Step-by-step instructions are listed in the owner's manual:, and also on stickers near the spare wheel.

How do you change the front left tire of a 1998 saturn wagon?

You just take off the hub, if equipped. Loosen the lug nuts. Jack the car up and take the lug nuts off. Take off the tire and put the new one on. If you need to get it off the rim, you need to let the air loose. Pry the tire off and put the new one on. It is hard to do unless you have the proper machine.

How do i change the back tire

Find the jack and jack up the rear just in front of the rear tire you are changing. (don't lift off ground completely yet). Using the lug wrench (also called a tire iron) break loose each lug nut.

Finish raising the vehicle just high enough that the tire isn't touching the ground. Finish removing the lug nuts, then pull tire off. Put new (different/spare) tire on, and put the lug nuts back on, and tighten by hand until tire is snug. With the car still raised, lightly tighten the lug nuts, until snug again (by use of lug wrench).

Lower car completely and tighten the lug nuts again (do not over tighten). At all points of tightening lug nuts, do so in a criss cross pattern. Start with one, then move to the one directly across from that, and so on (not all will be "directly" across at all times, so just make sure you alternate and don't go in any consecutive (clockwise/counter clockwise) order.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Trouble changing tires for '99 Toyota Corolla

Sounds like the wheel is just rusted to the hub a little bit. Take all the lug nuts out exept for one. Leave the last one on about half way. Make sure the vehicle is sturdy on the jack you are using and that the car is park(or gear for manual) and have the emergancy brake set.. Now if you have a heavy dead blow hammer you can give the wheel a healthy wack from behind, or you can turn your back to the wheel and give it a donkey kick at the bottom of the wheel. The last lug will keep the wheel from flying off at you. Now dont be alarmed about the wheel not turning, if this is a front wheel you are trying to turn, you shouldnt be able to turn it becasue the car is either in gear or park. Good luck and let me know if it works out okay
