I am trying to change tire on rear and it will not come off? All the lugs are off and still on tight. Is there something under the cap that also holds tire on?

Sounds like rust. This is a man against beast with hammer issue. Usually the inner ring or hub on the wheel rusts on to the axle flange, and is really quite tenacious. You need to use rust buster of some type, and kicking the tire at various degrees around the outer part of the tire...

Conisder pulling sanding and treating the same area on all of your wheels, as at some point you will need to take a wheel off along side a highway...

2002 Montero Sport removing the rear passenger tire has a flat


Hi,

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.

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...

Change tire


You need a jack to lift the vehicle high enough to get the tire off and the new one on, you need a lug wrench to loosen and tighten the lug nuts and depending on the rims you might have hub caps that are part of the rim or seperate and if they are seperate, you need something to pry them off with. So the proper way to do this is:
Before you raise it with the jack, take the lug wrench and loosen the lug nuts a little. This is easier when the tire is on the ground because depending on the tire location, it will turn if you lift it. So when the weight is on it, it wont turn. Then you put the jach under the car and near the tire you are lifting and you use the jack to raise the tire. Then finish taking the lug nuts off. Remove the tire and put the new tire on. You may have to raise the jack some more to make it high enough. Put the lug nuts back on tight as you can and lower the car. Then tighten the lug nuts again to be sure. You should tighten lug nuts by skipping them. In other words start with one and tighten it, skip the next one and tighten the third one. When you go all the way around, go to the ones you skipped and tighten those.

How do i get the rear hub off to replace the wheel studs


On some vehicles you may need to slightly pry the hub off. This can be done with a screw driver or the vehicle may have a lug wrench that came with the vehicle. If you are trying to replace the lug studs, then you will have to take the wheel off. Tap the broken stud out and replace it with the new one.

Spare tire location?


With the new 2008 models, the spare tire was moved from the rear of the van to a spot below the front seats. The lug for the tire winch is located under a round cover in the floor just in front of and between the two front seats. If you look under the van, you will see the black tire-shaped cover for the spare.
