SOURCE: Where are tire changing tools for a 95 izuzu rodeo 4x4?

I found this with a bit of searching. It was listed under a 96 model but I can't imagine it would be that much different with a 95.

Under the right rear seat. There should be a pull tab to lift up the seat, then just pull back the cover thats on the bottom of the seat. Hope this helps

SOURCE: how do you change a back tire with the standard

with tires blocked, transmission in park emergency brake on, vehicle off the road, you first break loose the lug nuts slightly then raise the jeep and remove the lug nuts, reversing the procedure after replacing the tire.

SOURCE: lift points on chassis for a floor jack

I use exactly the same the jacking points as I would use with the factory scissor jack. They are reinforced to handle the load. You'll find these point marked with triangle stamped into the rail and in your owner's manual.

How do I change a tire on a 2001 town and country


Open the hatch back. On the left-hand side is a panel that you can open in which the jack resides. Take that out.

(If you want to use the spare tire, located under the trunk space...)
You will see a plastic disc on the floor of the trunk space (where you store your luggage/groceries/etc). With a flat head screw driver pop the flat disc up & off. This will reveal a nut that you can turn to lower/release the spare tire that is directly underneath it.

If your T&C is like mine, you have a plastic cover in the middle of each alloy wheel that covers the lug nuts. This plastic cover can be popped off with the flat/nubby end of the crow bar that comes with the jack. It fits perfectly into a slot on the plastic cover.

Once you get the plastic cover off, the 5 lug nuts are revealed to you. Before you jack up the van, even a little, I would try to loosen all 5 lug nuts, just a bit...to get them going. Once the van is jacked up, it will be difficult to begin to loosen the lug nuts.

With the nuts loosened, set up the jack so that once you begin to turn it, the slot in the jack fits right into the frame of the van. You will see the frame that fits the slot in the jack between the front tires and back tires, on either side of the van.

Once the tire you want to change is fully lifted off of the ground, loosen the rest of the lug nuts and remove the tire. Replace it and reverse the order of what you just did. Get the 5 lug nuts onto the new tire, but only snug them up by hand. Once the tire touches the ground as the jack is lowered, then you can fully tighten the lug nuts with the crowbar.

Hope that helps!

Where do i place the jack to change a rear tire


Hello, When you look at the panel under the Rear and Front Doors you will see a Triangle mark under each door. The rear triangle is under the rear door and the front triangle is under the front door.

There is a body seam about 4 inches inward from the triangle mark and there is a notch in the body seam for the jack. You place the jack under the body seam where the notch is and catch the seam with the groove in the jack seat. Then it is in proper position to jack up your car.

Remember to break the tension off of the lugnuts before you lift the car. Lift the car and proceed to undo the lugnuts with a minimum of shaking on your car. With a flat, jack the car higher than the rim on the ground so the inflated tire will fit back on the vehicle.

Where do I put the jack to change the tire? When I put it under the car it only lifts the frame and not the tire.


Put the jack as close to the tire on the frame as you can. If the jack is too close to the center of the car it wont get the car tire up to the height it needs to be to lift off the ground. Hope that helps!

How to change the flat tire? Can not remove tire off the rim. How i get the nuts off?


You're not supposed to remove the tire from the rim like with the bicycle. You take the tire nut wrench, jack and the spare tire from the trunk, loosen the nuts, lift the car up with the jack, take off the nuts and the tire, replace the tire with the spare, skrew back the nuts, lower the car down, tighten the nuts, pack everything back in the trunk, drive to the tire fix shop, get the tire fixed, change it back, keep the spare ready for another punkture.

Where is the jack and tools for spare tire?


CHANGING A FLAT TIRE
Jack Location
In the Durango, the scissor jack and tire changing tools
are stowed under the second row seat.
The jack is secured in place with a winged stud and a
fixed stud. It is very important to secure the jack tightly
in place by engaging the slot in the base to the fixed stud
under the middle seat. The winged stud inserts through
the eyelet in the end of the jack’s worm screw.

2002 Honda Accord - changing tire


ex: front tire= right behind tire there is a lip of metal that sticks down and there is about a 3 to 4 inch part right behind the wheel that has been reinforced. Put your jack right there so the grove on the jack sits in it nicely. Before you jack up the car loosen the lug nuts a bit then lift the car and finish the job.

Change front tire


Hi,

Before you start make sure you have the following:
- jack or any other instrument to lift the car
- tool to open the tire bolts
- spare tire
- if you ar eon the side of the road a warning triangle or any other object to make sure the oncoming traffic can see you.

step 1 - Open the tire bolts, remove all of them but two. The bolts left on the tire should be left quite loose (you should be able to open then with your hands).

step 2 - Position jack underneath car & lift car. VERY IMPORTANT to make sure the jack if proparly positioned & that the car is stable (for a car that has one wheel in the air...), so it won't fall on you. Don't stop lifting once the flat tire is in the air, remmber you have to fit in a new tire. Lift it so the new tire can fit in.

step 3 - Remove the last to bolts with your hands, while loosening secure the tire with one hand so it won't fall on you.

step 4 - Remove flat tire, while doing make sure not to damage the bolt which the tire sits on.

step 5 - Fit new tire in, screw 2 bolts by hand to secure it place.

step 6 - Screw rest of bolt by hand so secure tire in place. Make sure to "push" the tire as firm as possible to the car.

step 7 - Lower car. Do this slowly incase the tire isn't sitting properly.

step 8 - Tighten all the bolts properly, don't over tighten them, cause the next time you have to change the tire, you won't be able to open them.

step 9 - After driving a bit with the car, retighten the bolts, just to make sure nothing is loose.

This only sounds a bit complicated it's much simpler in practice then on paper.
Good luck & congretulations,
Eitan.
