If you want to do the job yourself, get a hydralic jack that slides under the vehicle and you pump up away from the's safer than the Jeep jack by far! Before jacking it up,make sure you are on level ground and block the wheels and loosten the nuts on the one wheel you are about to remove. When you jack it up find the strongest chassis metal section nearest the wheel but not so close it's in your way while working. Jack it up, put a jack stand under the metal area near the jack point on the Jeep to catch the Jeep if it happens to slip off the jack. Pull the wheel, mount the wheel with the snow tire. and finish tightening the nuts ON THE GROUND. Reverse the process to get the Jeep on the ground. and finish tightening the nuts ON THE GROUND.

SOURCE: jack stand

jack stands most times are placed under neath the axles however in your case the stands should be placed behind the front wheels on the spot where you whould place a regular jack if let's say you were changing a tire. if your working on the rear of the vehical you should put them under each side of rear axle.

If you have the tent set up its easier to remove the big black box. Theres a cut out of carpet almost in the middle right up next to the tailgate plastic, not sure what you call it, pull that up. Its "U" shaped there a nut underneath it. turn counterclockwise and tire will drop down. my dad could not find his either. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Want to put winter tires size 225/70/16 on

I have been a mechanic for years and have never really understood why people want to do this. You have a frontwheel drive car. Just get a all weather tire, which you probaly already have and drive with caution in the snow.

How do I find the jacking points on a 01 caravan?

Do you have the owners manual? If you do it will show you. If not you should use the point on the frame closest to the tire that you are wanting to jack up. If you don`t know where the frame is then ask a friend or your local auto parts store sales person. They should be happy to help out.

No owners manual. How do I get to the spare tire? Can't tell if I'm supposed to go through the floor in the back or under the car.

The spare tire in a 1996 Grand Cherokee is supposed to be bolted on the inside the rear trunk area, on the drivers side, not underneath the Jeep as you think. The only thing under there taking up all the space is the gas tank. If it's not in the back, then you don't have one. The jack and tire iron are located under the rear seats.

Don't have the manual for a 2006 jeep liberty have a flat tire need to change it

You don't need a tech manual to change the tire. Block the wheels, engine off, gear shift in park or if a manual, in first gear. Jack it up, remove the lugs, put the spare on. Instructions for the jack will be found on or near the jack.

I need to lift up my 1993 eagle vision to change the front tires but don't know where to place the jack. my bottom is rusting so i want to be sure i'm on the frame

Look in your Owners Manual for the Recommended Jacking Points for your vehicle, Each vehicle is different so (one point specific point for all vehicles) does not always apply.

How do I change tire on 2006 jeep

The owner manual will tell you the jack location and the jacking points. Loosen the lugnuts half a turn before you jack it up. Jack it up and remove the nuts. Put on the spare, and reinstall the nuts and run them down. Lower the car and tighten the nuts as tight as you can get them. Then drive the car to a tire shop. The spare is a temporary spare.

Spare tire tools

From the owner's manual for that model, see link below also, page 299 of the PDF has a nice picture.

Spare Tire Removal
Fit the jack handle extension over the drive nut. Use the
Lug Wrench to rotate the nut counter clockwise until the
spare is on the ground with enough slack in the cable to
allow to pull the tire out from under the vehicle.
The winch mechanism is designed for use with the
jack extension tube only. Use of an air wrench or
other power tools is not recommended and can
damage the winch.
When the spare is clear, tilt the retainer at the end of the
cable and pull it through the center of the wheel.

Where to i place the jack when changing a tire on a 2000 ddg dura

If you have the owners manual it will say where to exactly place the jack. If not one can be picked up at a junk yard for a couple of dollars. One thing they probably won't tell you in the owners manual is that when removing the tire to never put your hands at the 6 and 12 o'clock positions on the tire. I don't mean to scare you, but this is very dangerous due to the fact that if the vehicle slips off the jack your hands could get crushed either between the fender and the tire and/or between the tire and the ground. Always put your hands in the 3 and 9 o'clock positions on the tire when removing. And never crawl under the vehicle with the factory jack.
Hope this helps.
