The jacks for these vehicles are usually under the hood. They are a hydraulic bottle type jack and the tools to operate it are usually located elsewhere in the vehicle. Your owners manual will tell you where everything is and how to use it. The jacks supplied with these vehicles, however, often don't work due to lack of use. You can use a jack from another vehicle as long as it is meant for a truck and not a car. The jack needs to be placed under the axle casing closest to the wheel you are removing. Range Rovers came from the factory with air suspension and jacking any place other than under the axle may result in an air suspension fault. Your vehicle may have been converted to coil springs, but still should be raised under the axle. Just make sure that the part of the jack that contacts the axle cradles it in some way. The factory jacks have a "V" shaped contact point so that the axle will not slide off of the jack while it is in the air. Your best bet is to loosen the lug nuts on the tire you are changing before you jack it up and wait until the vehicle is back on the ground to give the nuts the final tightening. The lug nut size is 1-1/16".

SOURCE: Programming a used 2005 Range Rover key FOB

Unfortunately I believe that will require a trip to the dealer, and a hefty price tag to go with it. Most dealers refuse to let anyone else handle their security systems. And most keys have the alarm keypad built in making it even more dealer specific. I wish I could give better news.

SOURCE: what wrong?

Hi Axer,

The Range Rovers have permanently engaged Four Wheel Drive. If the tires are different sizes, they're spinning at different rates. Or trying to.

If you were off-road, it wouldn't matter too much, but on paved road, where the tires tend to grip not slip, these different rates subject a locked drive train to tremendous stress. This can bind up the gearing in the transfer case. Hopefully after only ten minutes, no permanent damage was done.

You can relieve this stress by jacking one end completely off the ground. Front or back. As the tires lose their grip on the road, you should see them spin slightly. That's good news. Once released you should be able to move again.

While it's in the air, you should probably put the original size tires back on. So choose which end to jack accordingly.

Comment me back to let me know how it goes.
Good luck

Mike

Where is the spare tire located on a 1995 ford aerostar?


Section 00-02: Lifting, Jacking and Spare Tire Stowage 1995 Aerostar, Ranger, Explorer Workshop Manual
TIRE STOWAGE Tire, Spare, Removal, Aerostar If the Aerostar is a standard length vehicle the spare tire is mounted inside to a carrier at the left rear quarter panel. To remove the spare tire, remove the wing nut and plate. A flat tire can be temporarily stowed in the same location.



If the Aerostar is the bus with a standard length body or extended length (all models), the temporary spare tire is stowed at the rear of the vehicle under the body. The Aerostar standard length E-4WD bus spare tire is mounted on the floor.
  1. Insert lug nut wrench into the actuator hole and turn counterclockwise until the cable extends to allow the spare tire to be pulled rearward from under the vehicle.
  1. Slide spare tire to the rear and remove the retainer from the wheel.
  1. To stow cable/retainer with spare tire removed, insert cable fitting into carrier rear wall slot, place wheel retainer against the carrier, and turn lug nut wrench clockwise until slack is removed.

Right rear axel makes noise


You need to jack it up, And put it on jack stands. Its a safty thing. Next spin the tires with the engine, Put it in drive. let the Brake off slow. Don't forget to block the front tires with a brick, or a 4x4 or 2 pieces of fire wood. Put one under each front tire. Now run the engine 30 to 35 miles per hour.With the tires still on your Rover. Pay close attn to the noise as the tires spin. Now pull the wheels and pull the rotor or drum off. Now if its a bearing you will here it. Be sure to let off the gas pedal very slowly so you won't hurt the drive train. We checked wheel balance, Wheel bearings, Brake noise, even out of round tires can be spoted while running the tires on and off to do the test. its like driving it down the road but you can get down there and look and hear things. I sure hope this is helpfull to you.

A friend is broke down with another friends truck with a flat tire and needs to know where to find the tire jack


Jack should be either located under hood mounted to fender well or in a side compartment inside of the car behind the rear wheelwell or even under the carpet in the trunk where the spare tire sohuld be located. If it is not in those locations then chances are that someone has removed them from the vehicle
