Question about 2009 Audi A4

1 Answer

I got a flat on the front driver's side and had to remove the tire and replace with the spare (not full size). Now with the spare on, I get a parking break error and an ABS error. Is it safe to drive below 80KM?

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...

Placement of jack to change the front driver side tire


There is a notch location just about below front fender. It is a gap in the downward protruding flange that will be the size of the top of the jack. Set parking brake and chock or block rear wheels if possible to prevent vehicle moving and avoid injury.

2007 Honda Pilot - spare tire - is it a full size tire? If not, can it be replaced with a full size tire?


Many saper tires are not full size and you can replace them with the same rim and tire set up that matches the rest. Please rate if this helps.

My honda odyssey touring does not have a spare tire. We bought this as a brand new car. The first time i had a flat tire we checked everywhere in the car even with AAA service help and we were not able to...


2005 Honda Odyssey TOURING models originally came with Michelin PAX run-flats and eliminated the traditional dough-nut spare. If your van no longer has run-flats (look at the tire size) then your van has already been De-PAX'd...count your lucky stars because PAX tires run about 300 a tire plus!!! If you have been De-PAX'd then you will need a donut spare (T135/80D17) this goes into the spare tire space located behind the 3rd row of seats. this Site has everything you will need for the spare http://www.hondapartworld.com/1534_SPARE-SHJ

2007 cad SRX right rear has flat tire 255 60R17 can I use the spare tire? Is it a full size spare tire?


If the vehicle came with a spare tire then yes you can use it. As to whether or not it is a full size spare tire I wouldn't be able to answer that, as on some models a full sized spare is an option and I have no way of knowing if that option was purchased or not.

Do i need to replace all four tires if one went flat? what are the limitations of the spare?


You only have to replace the one that went flat, but if the other three are well worn, you may need a full set.

Plus, you generally cannot mix tire tread "on an axle", meaning tread on the front wheels should be the same, tread on rear wheels should be the same, but tread on front and back wheels do not need to be the same.

For the spare, it depends on if it's a full spare, or lightweight spare, meant to get you to a tire repair location. If so, limits are usually written on the tire, which is typically 50 miles and (I think) max speed of 50 MPH.

Car started to shake while driving


Jack front end. Use both hands to check driver and passenger side tires for slight wobble. If wobbles, you have a bad ball joint. Otherwise inspect tie-rod end for wear.

Tire and Rim Problem


It appears that you have the wrong size wheels on the rear (17). Standard tire size on that vehicle is 265/75/16. You all so have a full size spare. Keep in mind that if this is a 4 wheel drive vehicle, damage to the drivetrain can result if you continue to drive with diffrent size tires.

Is there any where to place a full sized spare tire in a 2008 grand caravan?


According to a dodge salesman, the spare tire cover is big enough to take a full size tire. Folks who pull trailers want full size tires so Chrysler made the cavity under the front seats big enough for one. Still, I expect it will be a pain to pull a full size tire out from under the middle of the van.
