How do I get my spare tire off of a 2004 ford freestar van that didnt come with a jack or tire tools

Either buy a used tool from a salvage yard, or use a socket and ratchet. You should be able to find a socket or extension that will fit the post in the floor to lower the tire.

How do i change a tire on a 1988 ford f-150

Before doing anything make sure you have air in your spare..,A good Jack and spare tire removal kit....The kit should be under or behind the passenger seat..I don't like the factory Jack it comes with because sometimes you need a good strong block of wood to achieve the height you need to contact the vehicle..and sometimes they don't work correctly...Some spare tire release tools are under the hood..It is a long skinny rod ...You have to use rod or rod kit to stick through the rear bumper at the slot and turn the rod counterclockwise after you feel the rod connect with the release mechanism..,Lower the spare until it touches the ground then keep turning so you can have enough slack to remove cable from spare tire...Set parking brake while in park and use the lug nut removal tool to break loose the lug nuts before raising vehicle..They are removed counter clockwise..Don't take nuts off just break them loose...Block front wheels for safety with anything solid you can find if you are stranded..If you can't find anything rely on parking brake..It should be safe in park but safety first....Jack vehicle up..,remove all lug nuts put them in a safe clean place don't lose them..Remove flat tire..Install spare..Start each lug nut and tighten them all tight by hand..Snug each nut clockwise in a star pattern ..Get them good and tight but don't try to hurt yourself or break the stud...Lower vehicle,remove Jack..Snug each lug nut once again for safety..Put flat in truck bed for now rather than back in the spare storage area because it has to be repaired..Crank spare cable that held spare under truck clockwise until it stops.Remove tool..,Gather all tools used., remove blocks from front tires.,Head to a tire store...

Start truck, release jack and continue on your way. Make sure spare has proper amount of air. If not go to gas station and fill tire. If low on air do not go over 30 mph. Hope this helps.

I can't get the spare tire out of the rack? 2004 yukon

  • Rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise in order to lower the spare tire to the ground. Continue to rotate the shaft until the spare tire can be pulled out from under the vehicle and removed. If the spare tire does not lower to the ground, the secondary latch is engaged causing the tire not to lower.
  • If the secondary latch is engaged and the cable end is visible, perform the following procedure: 3.1. Tighten the cable by rotating the hoist shaft clockwise until you hear 2 clicks or feel it skip twice. You cannot overtighten the cable. 3.2. Loosen the cable by rotating the hoist shaft counterclockwise 3 or 4 turns. 3.3. If the spare tire can be lowered, repeat steps 1 and 2 to see if the spare tire can be removed. 3.4. If the spare tire cannot be lowered, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until approximately 15 cm (6 in) of cable is exposed. 3.5. Raise and support the vehicle. 3.6. Place a transmission jack, or equivalent, under the spare tire. 3.7. Position the center of the transmission jack under the secondary latch release button at the center of the spare tire. Arrange the arms of the transmission jack so they will support the tire after it has been released. 3.8. Raise the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is firmly held in place, releasing the secondary latch. 3.9. Lower the tire. If the spare tire is hanging by the cable, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until the tire is low enough to remove.

    How do you release the spare tire underneath the truck?

    The spare is held in place by a cable that is cranked up and down with a tool that is stored with the jack, the access hole for the tool to crank the spare down is in the rear bumper in most trucks, look underneath to see it and be sure.
