2002 Montero Sport removing the rear passenger tire has a flat


Changing the wheel/tire on this vehicle is not significantly different from any other car or truck.

You will need to first pop off the center cap if you have one so that you have a clear shot at the wheel lugs.
Use your tire iron or a 21mm socket and breaker bar to loosen all lug nuts 1-2 turns.
Place your jack under the vehicle.... if you are using a scissor jack you can use the pinch weld of the body just forward of the rear wheel (the vertical stamped metal rib), or if you have a bottle jack or floor jack you can also lift from the front of the trailing arm or directly below the axle behind the wheel.
Once the wheel is off the ground, remove the lug nuts the rest of the way.

At this point the wheel should come off. If it is frozen on the truck from age/rust, you can use a rubber mallet to strike the back side of the sidewall to help jar it loose. If you do not have a mallet you can kick the inside side wall with your foot, however you do not want to do this if you are using a scissor jack or if you are on uneven ground, so as to avoid knocking the truck off the jack.

With the wheel off you can take it to a shop for dismounting/replacement of the tire; this can not be done without special equipment.

Place the repaired wheel/tire or spare on the truck and tighten the lug nuts finger tight so that the wheel is flush (not tilting).
Lower the jack and remove it.
Use your tire iron or 21mm socket and breaker bar to tighten the lug nuts the rest of the way.

If you are using a spare tire, the tail gate mounted spare is removed by simply taking off the lug nuts holding it on; The under-mounted spare is lowered to the ground by unscrewing the 21mm nut located under the cargo cover in the rear center of the truck. This nut operates a winch which will lower the tire to the ground when turned anti clockwise, and draws it back up to the truck when turned clockwise.

Tire changing jack location AND using someone elses jack

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".

Solid bar in front end, two bushings on either side of front tires is this the sway bar?

if you are talking about the sway bar end links. you can replace them yourself to save a few bucks. first Raise the front of the vehicle with a hydraulic jack. Place jack stands under the frame on each side of the vehicle. Lower the hydraulic jack so that the weight of the vehicle is supported by the jack stands and the front wheels are off the ground. locate the sway bar end links on either side of the front sway bar. Remove the bolts from each end of the sway bar end link. replace the bushings in the same order you take them off. you can go to any auto parts store and buy end links for your car.

Jacking points on all Jeep vehicles


Your Jeep was supplied with a jack for emergency road repairs. This jack is fine for changing a flat tire or other short-term procedures not requiring you to go beneath the vehicle. Do not attempt to use the jack on any portions of the vehicle other than specified by the vehicle manufacturer. Always block the diagonally opposite wheel when using a jack.


Placing a floor jack under the front frame rail


Placing a floor jack under the rear frame rail at the leaf spring shackle. It may be necessary to place a block of wood between the frame rail and the jack


Supporting the front of the vehicle with jack stands placed under each frame rail

A more convenient way of jacking is the use of a garage or floor jack. You may use the floor jack at the specified points in following the illustrations.

Never place the jack under the radiator, engine or transmission components. Severe and expensive damage will result when the jack is raised. Additionally, never jack under the floorpan or bodywork; the metal will deform

How do you take the rear wheels off of the 2004 dodge ram 1500

hi, if just taking the rear wheels off the vehicle, you will need a hydraulic jack, or vehicle lift of some kind, jack stands to place under the vehicle if you are using the hydraulic jack. You will also need either a 4 way tire iron, or some combination of a 7/8 in socket and a 1/2 in drive breaker bar, the socket needs to be 1/2 in drive as well. this tools maybe rented from local auto parts stores if you do not have availible. now, the lug nuts(the nuts holding the wheels on) may not be 7/8 inch size, depending on the rim package you have, there will be only five of course though. before you jack up the vehicle, you must break the lug nuts loose. take either the 4-way tire iron, or the breaker bar and use a lot of force and turn counter clockwise with the wheels on the ground, and the vehicle in park, with the parking brake on. break all five lug nuts loose(able to turn easily, by hand if desired) on both sides. then you must locate the vehicle frame underneath, and use the jack on the frame point only, never on the axleshaft or body part, and jack up one side of the vehicle until the wheel hangs freely, and place a jackstand next to the hydrualic jack close to touching the frame. lower the vehicle onto the jackstand and make sure the wheel will hang freely. repeat on the other side until both sides, wheels are hanging freely. then remove the lug nuts with either the tire iron, socket and breaker bar, or by hand. once all lug nuts are reomved, pull the wheels off. that should just about do it, hope i didn't leave anthing out, if putting back on, reverse steps, but hand tighten clockwise until tight against the studs, then lower the vehicle down and tighen each lug nut in a star fashion. make sure to tighten very well, you don't want the rims to fall off while driving. good luck.

The following instructions must be carried out before raising the vehicle off the ground.

  • Use a solid level ground surface.
  • Apply hand brake.
  • Select 'P' on automatic gearbox selector.
Note: If the propeller shafts are to be removed, reference must be made to the relevant operation. To avoid damage occurring to the under body components of the vehicle the following jacking procedures must be adhered to.

  • Fuel tank
  • Brake lines
  • Front or rear suspension arms
  • Transfer box
  • Steering linkage
  • Front or rear differential units
  • Engine sump
  • Automatic gearbox
NOTE: For certain repair operations, it may be necessary to support the engine under the sump. In this case, a block of hardwood or a rubber block should be positioned on the jack lifting cup to protect sump. Vehicle jack
The jack provided with the vehicle is only intended for use in an emergency, for changing a tyre. DO NOT use the jack for any other purpose. Refer to Owner's Handbook for vehicle jack location points and procedure. Never work under a vehicle supported solely by the vehicle jack.

Hydraulic jack
A hydraulic jack with a minimum 1500 kg, (3,300 lbs) load capacity must be used.

WARNING: Do not commence work on the underside of the vehicle until suitable axle stands have been placed in their correct position. Always chock the wheels when jacking. The handbrake may be ineffective when the wheels are off the ground. Raising and supporting the vehicle

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.

Problem removeing brake discs.

Before any service is performed, carefully check the following:
  • Be sure the vehicle is properly centered and secured on stands or a hoist.
  • If the vehicle has antilock brakes, depressurize the system according to the procedures given in the service manual.
  • Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  • Front brake pad replacement begins with removing brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir. If this is not done, the fluid could overflow and spill when the pistons are forced back into the caliper bore, possibly damaging the painted surfaces.
  • Replace the cover.
  • Discard old brake fluid.

  • Raise the car. Make sure it is safely positioned on the lift.
  • If you don't have a lift, use a jack and jack stands.
  • A handle on the jack is moved up and down to raise part of a vehicle and a valve is turned to release the hydraulic pressure in the jack to lower the part. At the end of the jack is a lifting pad.
  • The pad must be positioned under an area of the vehicle's frame or at one of the manufacturer's recommended lift points.
  • Never place the pad under the floorpan or under steering and suspension components, because they can easily be damaged by the weight of the vehicle.
  • Always position the jack so that the wheels of the vehicle can roll as the vehicle is being raised.
  • Never use a lift or jack to move something heavier than it is designed for. Always check the rating before using a lift or jack. If a jack is rated for 2 tons, do not attempt to use it for a job that requires a 5-ton jack. It is dangerous for you and the vehicle.
  • Safety stands, also called jack stands, are supports of various heights that sit on the floor. They are placed under a sturdy chassis member, such as the frame or axle housing, to support the vehicle.
  • Once the safety stands are in position, the hydraulic pressure in the jack should be slowly released until the weight of the vehicle is on the stands. Like jacks, jack stands also have a capacity rating. Always use the correct rating of jack stand.
  • Never move under a vehicle when it is supported by only a hydraulic jack. Rest the vehicle on the safety stands before moving under the vehicle.
  • The jack should be removed after the jack stands are set in place.
  • This eliminates a hazard, such as a jack handle sticking out into a walkway. A jack handle that is bumped or kicked can cause a tripping accident or cause the vehicle to fall.
  • If you use support stands on asphalt, put a piece of thick plywood or a steel plate under the stands.
  • Remove its wheel assemblies.

  • Inspect the brake assembly.
  • Look for signs of fluid leaks, broken or cracked lines, or a damaged break rotor. If a problem is found, correct it before installing the new brake pads.

  • Loosen the bolts and remove the pad locator pins.
  • During servicing, grease, oil, brake fluid, or any other foreign material must be kept off the brake linings, caliper, surfaces of the disc, and external surfaces of the hub. Handle the brake disc and caliper in such a way as to avoid deformation of the disc and nicking or scratching of the brake linings.

  • Lift and rotate the caliper assembly from the rotor.

  • Remove the brake pads from the caliper assembly.

  • Fasten a piece of wire to the car's frame and support the caliper with the wire.
  • When a hydraulic hose is disconnected, plug it to prevent any foreign material from entering.

  • Check the condition of the locating pin insulators and sleeves.

  • Place a piece of wood over the caliper's piston and install a C-clamp over the wood and caliper.
  • Tighten the clamp to force the piston back into its bore.
