Cant find the tire wrench


Usually they are a multipurpose design. If i remember correctly from my previous m vehicles the back end of the lug wrench is used to operate jack. If they are missing best bet go to Auto parts stoe and buy a compact jack and tire iron set.

Removing a flat tire on the road safe and easy


Greetings folks,
I have many years experience in the automotive industry and have just about been through every type of situation there is to have experienced.
One simple thing that strikes me as strange is the fact that it is very hard to find proper training for vehicle owners and drivers on the facts about how to change a flat tire, or how to be prepared for a flat tire without even taking the tire off your car or SUV.
How about the trouble you may have had in the past, you knowing exactly how to change a flat but couldn't get the lug nuts off the wheel studs due to someone once before inspecting the brakes or replacing the tires and using an impact gun to install the lug nuts and over tightening them.
Has anyone ever illustrated to you folks the do'e and dont's of using a jack to raise your vehicle off the ground to gain access for removal of a wheel?
Ok lets start with the needed required tools one should carry in their car to prepare for such an event, first lets have a small first aid safety kit for any cuts and bruises including bandades and infection preventing creams and liquids(Iodine, hydrogen peroxide, etc.), next we need to be sure we have a good spare tire in the trunk, easy to check push the side to see if it is hard to the touch indicating it has proper air inflation, also check for a good working tire jack the typical scissor jack and crank handle, which comes with the vehicle make sure it is good, but I prefer to purchase a $29.99 miniature sized professional looking hydraulic floor jack, they fit under the car excellently and work tremendously easy and safe, they can be purchased in Sears Auto or any Auto Parts Store, also a pair of jack stands, two small wedges of wood shaped like large door stops(we will refer to them as the wedges), they can be bought or easily trimmed by a wood worker, from a 4"x4" wood post 6" long and cut on a 45 degree angle on one side, a 1/2" drive breaker bar(heavy duty from Sears Auto Tools Dept) or the like, if not a set of 1/2" impact sockets then at least two common tire wheel lug sizes which are 3/4" and 13/16", these type sockets are made tough and can take a work out, a 48 oz. short handled heavy duty hammer, very important at least two cans of fix a flatNow that you have been introduced to an arrangement of neccessary tools and safety equipment to take along with you on a typical road trip in hopes to keep you and your vehicle from paying dissasterous road service fees and tremendous time lose on the road due to a flat tire, lets get started;Ok now if you experience a flat and notice (once you pull safely all the way over off to the shoulder of the road with your hazard flashers on) that the tire is losing air but doesn't really look in real bad shape, such as a condition tire folks call"run flat" which means the tire has been driving and supporting the vehicles weight with no air in it for a sustained distance, and the tire very noticably has damage all over its sides, etc., this is a typical flat tire that needs to come off, however if the tire appears rather good except for the fact it has or is losing air, get your fix a flat and safety googles out of the trunk with your light duty gloves, find the little black or chrome tire air valve located on the tire near the metal wheels edge, unscrew the little cap, read the directions on the fix a flat can, and install the contents according to the directions.In all cases of this being used they require you to put the screw cap back on the valve and cautiously take your car back onto the road, stay in the right lane with your warniog hazard flashers on and allow the foamy liquid to perform its chemical majic as you drive at the recommended speed on the directions.This should fix your flat without any fuss or muss, have the tire looked at at your next convience to be sure it is ok to drive on it any further.That was relatively easy and thank godness for Fix A Flat, the next type of flat tire however requires a bit more thought and work.I am going to cover first the proper way to jack up your vehicle in the event the tire has to come off for the spare to be installed.

First, spull to safety, put your hazard flashers on whether its day or night, look for an area that the ground looks pretty level.

Secondly, open your trunk and leave it open, remove your spare tire and all the neccessary tools you will need to change the tire.

Third, using your breaker bar and the proper impact socket attempt to loosen(but dont remove) the tire nuts on the flat tire, if a tire lug wont come loose, getb the 48 oz. hammer and the impact socket that fits the wheel lug and hit it with a sharp firm blow, be certain you have on the eye protection as hitting steel against steel can cause some steel fragments to fly you don't want your eye to be the reciever of such, after you hit it the nut should turn loose, remeber you are only turning them about 1/2 turn loose you don't remove them until the tire is jacked up and off the ground(doing this helps prevent the car from falling off the jack had you jacked it first then applied all sorts of tugging etc on the tight lug nuts).

Fourth, place the wedges in front of and behind one of the tires on the opposite side of the car, this will eliminate the possibility of the car sliding forward or backwards off the jack once it is jacked up.
Find a secure flat firm welded frame area to place the floor jack under, or if using the original scissor jack be sure you are also using it in a firm jacking location(most scissor jacks have a notch put in the under side of the vehicle that allows the jack to fit into the channel securely) once found and level jack the car's tire off the ground, install the jack stands under the vehicle in a firm body frame sort of area to prevent the car from falling off the jack you can never be too safe.

Fifth, install the spare tire on the vehicle and while it is on the jack, start threading the wheel lug nuts onto the appropriate wheel studs, use your wrench and socket to get the nuts down only slightly tight.

Sixth, remove the jack stand or stands depending on how secure you felt about using one or two, lower the jack, once the tire is firmly touching the ground, continue to tighten the remaining wheel lug nuts one at a time until they feel good and firmly tight.

Seventh, remove the wedges from the wedged tire on the other side of the vehicle, remove the jack, put everything back into the trunk including the flat tire. Happy Motoring!!!

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!

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.

How do i get the spare tire to come down


If the spare tire does not lower to the ground,the secondary latch is engaged
causing the tire not to lower Your vehicle has an underbody-mounted tire hoist
assembly equipped with a secondary latch system.It is designed to stop the spare
tire from suddenly falling off your vehicle if the cable holding the spare tire
is damaged.For the secondary latch to work,the tire must be stored with the
valve stem pointing up.
1.Check under the vehicle to see if the cable is visible.If it is not visible
proceed to Step 6.
2.If visible,first try to tighten the cable by turning the wheel wrench clockwise
until you hear two clicks or feel it skip twice.You cannot overtighten the cable.
3.Loosen the cable by turning the wheel wrench counterclockwise three or four turns.
4.Repeat this procedure at least two times.If the spare tire lowers to the ground
continue with Step 2 of removing the Spare.
5.Turn the wrench counterclockwise until approximately 6 inches (15 cm) of cable is
exposed.
6.Attach the jack handle,extension and the wheel wrench to the jack and place it under
the vehicle towards the front of the rear bumper.Position the center lift point of the
jack under the center of the spare tire.
7.Turn the wrench clockwise to raise the jack until it lifts the end fitting.
8.Continue raising the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is held firmly
in place.
9.Lower the jack by turning the wheel wrench counterclockwise.Keep lowering the jack
until the spare tire slides off the jack or is hanging by the cable.
10.Disconnect the jack handle from the jack and carefully remove the jack.Use one hand
to push against the spare while firmly pulling the jack out from under the spare tire
with the other hand.
