loose wheel nuts. Check tightness of wheel nuts or if you are not mechanically inclined go to a tyre store and get them to check if you have missing wheel nuts or loose wheel nuts. Preferrably before the wheel comes off later on while you are driving down the road. (Happened 30 years ago to my father)
other possible things to consider
badly worn tyre
under inflated tyres
faulty shock absorbers.
bent tyre rim
place the hand brake on firmly--chock other wheels . loosen off the wheel nuts . jack the vehicle up finish removing the wheel nuts . pull the wheel of the studs . fit replacement spare wheel onto studs . do wheel nuts up as tight as possible . lower jack so that the wheel is on the ground . finish tightening the wheel nuts . Replace the jack and wrench in the boot along with the flat tyre . Take the flat tyre to a tyre shop for a puncture repair and have it fixed immediately. Most "people" leave the repair to a later time when they will need a spare that they do not have .The tyre change process is fully described in the owners hand book for your vehicle.
You can reach the fuel filter much easier if you jack up the passenger side of the car. Place the jack just before the rear wheel and remove the tyre to have space to work. The fuel filter is located near the gas tank. You will need to hold the nut on one side as you loosen the nut on the other side. Take care not to damage the fuel line.
Sometimes you can start turning them out (they unscrew) with a tiny flat blade screwdriver. Or you can go to a parts store and buy a small package of tire valve caps that have the two small prongs for removing valve cores. Walmart probably has them, too.
There should be 2 steel rods that you join together in your tool kit behind or under seat depending on cab style (near jack) using another handle or on some the wheel nut wrench for turning handle this goes in black plastic rectangular tube at rear of tub or tray and inserts into winch that holds up spare tyre, anti clockwise lowers. Some models with rear bumper bar may have round plug to take out first (left side)When tyre on ground make sure cable is loose (slack) so you can then get holding braket out of centre hole in rim.
hi from uk if the spare tyre is fitted/secured under the rear end of car on a cradle?? then to remove it open rear hatch lift carpet up near to the rear cross member that hatch closes onto you should see a bolt head in a dished hole ? this bolt head is same size as wheel nut brace of your car so using the wheel brace turn the bolt anticlockwise as you would to unlock wheel nuts? you will have to turn for a while as this bolt is hooked to the tyre cradle you will see tyre lower as you turn when lowered fully to its stup ? you then lift cradle+tyre up enough to unhook bolt hook from cradle to reinstall is reverse operation to above till bolt tightens with tyre loaded WARNING! do not drive vehicle without a tyre loaded on cradle and secured as to simply rehook and secure bolt is not sufficient and the cradle WILL jump off when on rough road as well as an annoying rattle from loose cradle hope this helps
hi i take it u mean wheel bearings first jack and block the car up removing the tyre you will find a centre nut remove this your bearing is behind it if removeing it you will need to hire a withdrawing tool
There is a wire handle that you use to remove the plastic centre cap then you put the jack at the jacking point. Before the wheel comes off the ground use the wheel brace which is also the jack handle to slighly loosen the wheel nuts. Jack the wheel completely off the ground and remove the wheel nuts and then the wheel
This is because of corrosion, first jack up the vehicle and place it on secure axle stands, make sure it is safe!!!!!!!!! remove wheel nuts, find a block of wood and a large hammer. Plkace the wood on the back of the wheel hit the wood hard, turn the wheel and repeat, this will remove the wheel. do not hit the wheel directly, this will damage the wheel.
