Where do I place the jack for the rear tire on 2004 GMC Envoy XL? The directions look like they want me to place it behind the tire underneath? I can can't find a location to place the jack?


The jack goes under the rear axle shaft tube halfway between the anti sway bar bracket and the suspension spring. The diagram is in the owner's manual under section 5

Instructions on changing front brakes on a 1993 delta88 oldsmobile 1993


Instructions
    • 1Loosen the lugs nuts using the tire iron. Place the wood blocks in front of the tires you will not be removing.
    • 2 Raise the vehicle using the floor jack. Set the jack beneath the support strut that runs along the outer edge of the undercarriage. Raise it enough to allow the tires to clear the ground. Place the jack stands underneath the same strut as the jack.
    • 3 Remove the lugs nuts completely and take the tire off. Set these all aside.
    • 4 Remove the mounting bracket bolts with a socket wrench. The mounting bracket is the metal half-circle that is revealed when you remove the tire. Tie the mounting bracket to the undercarriage with rope to prevent stress damage to the brake line.
    • 5 Remove the brake pads from the bracket by hand.
    • 6 Compress the caliper cylinder with the C-clamp. The caliper cylinder is the 3- to 6-inch wide cylinder in the center of the bracket. Make sure that it is flush with the bracket.
    • 7 Install the new brake pads where the old ones were.
    • 8 Reattach the mounting bracket to the rotor. Reattach the tire and finger-tighten the lug nuts. Lower the vehicle and the tighten all of the nuts with the tire iron.

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!

A loud banging underneath the car by the wheels at the front of the car?


go underneath to look at the tie rod ends at both sides that are connected to both tires. If both ends rubber bots are warned out that you should replace them as soon as possibly before they destroy more things later on so jack up the car and look for this first. If this is not it that you can use two jacks and jack 3 ton stands in front of the car and start the car up and put it into drive as long as the tires are not touching the floor so have someone in the car while you are out to hear if the noise appears. Just be careful when if you do this is all.

Can't find the jack stowage on my '06 Jeep Grand Cherokee


It is underneath the donut tire. 1st you have to lift up the carpet in the back, then the "door". Now pull out the donut tire and the Tire Jack is underneath. We had to do a search and rescue on ours years ago and had a terrible time finding it too!!

Location of wheel jack


Lift up the table or cover on spare tire and the plastic housing for the spare tire then lifts up (by removing some simple pins) and the jack is tucked underneath (next to bumper, but on the inside of the car).

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.
