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".
I have honestly never replaced brakes on a Ford Ranger but front disc brake pads are fairly simple to R & R. You either need a large allen wrench or a socket and ratchet. The socket size is probably 14mm or 9/16. You can use the tire iron and jack for your spare to remove the lug nuts on the wheel and jack up the truck. You should really use a floor jack and jack stands. Either way keep your body and limbs out from under the truck. Usually there are 2 caliper pins or bolts to remove. pull off the caliper and use a "C" clamp to compress the caliper pistons into the caliper completely and do not use anything but a clamp or you will never get it to depress. Keep the old brake pad in there on the piston side as a buffer between the clamp and the piston and it will help evenly disperse the pressure on the piston. Lube up the pins before you install them or they will be a nightmare to get out again. Vent the system by loosening the cap on the master cylinder to make the piston easier to depress. Let me know if I can help any further. Please rate me on this answer.
Hi, I also own a 2007 Ford Ranger. That's the TPMS light. It's telling you the tire pressure is low. Check the tire pressure and if make sure it's where it needs to be (there's a sticker in the door jamb that tells you what the tire pressure should be set to.
