If the tire has been on the car for a while it will not just easily come off by removing all of the bolts. Sometime a few swift kicks to the tire will loosen the rim from the car and you will then be able to remove the tire.

How do you get the locked bulb off your tire to replace it with the spare? Where is the unlock key located? Or do you have to contact your dealer?


The key is usually attached to the lug wrench at the factory with a wire. If it is not attached to the lug wrench, look for it by the spare or else in the glove box. If you can't find it, buy a new one from the dealer.

Step by step removing and replacing the spair


Hi my name is Tom and I am here to help you.

By changing the spare tire, I am going to assume that you mean changing a flat tire using the spare tire. If I am mistaken please advise.

Locate the area where the spare tire and jack are located. You should see a lug wrench. This would be a X shaped device with closed sockets. Find the correct lug size needed for the Caravan. Loosen the lugs by turning the wrench counter clock wise. A little reminder is (lefty loosey, righty tightey)

After the lugs are loose, jack the car up using the jack provided. Near each wheel is notches which show you where to place the jack. Do not jack any further then you need to lift the car up. Keep in mind that an inflated tire is larger than a deflated.

Remove all the lug nuts and replace the flat tire with a good one. Put the lugs back on and hand tighten.
Lower the car and tighten the lug nuts firmly.

The only thing I believe I left out was removing the wheel covers. You should find in a packet with the jack a device to unlock the wheel cover. I can not tell you what it is because each car is unique.

I trust this is detailed enough for you. If not, please feel free to contact me and I will answer any questions you might have.

Please take the time to rank the information I gave you and how helpful it was. This will help me to do a better job for you and other to follow.

How do i change the back tire


Find the jack and jack up the rear just in front of the rear tire you are changing. (don't lift off ground completely yet). Using the lug wrench (also called a tire iron) break loose each lug nut.

Finish raising the vehicle just high enough that the tire isn't touching the ground. Finish removing the lug nuts, then pull tire off. Put new (different/spare) tire on, and put the lug nuts back on, and tighten by hand until tire is snug. With the car still raised, lightly tighten the lug nuts, until snug again (by use of lug wrench).

Lower car completely and tighten the lug nuts again (do not over tighten). At all points of tightening lug nuts, do so in a criss cross pattern. Start with one, then move to the one directly across from that, and so on (not all will be "directly" across at all times, so just make sure you alternate and don't go in any consecutive (clockwise/counter clockwise) order.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Where i the lug key ocated? This is a new purchase of a 1996 trooper with a flat that needs to be changed.


usually the lug key will be attached to the tools located in the tire change kit. You also might find the lug key in the glove box. If you find that you cannot locate the lug key- you might go to a Isuzu dealer to see if they have a master lug key.

I can't unlock the hubcap to change the tire


Take a picture of the lug nut and go to the auto parts store to buy the key that fits the lug nut.  You may have to purchase the whole kit with the key, but at least you will always have spare lug nuts.  Alternative is to show the picture to the locksmith shop and see if they have any suggestions.  Poor boy fix is to go to Sears and purchase their Lug Nut breaker to remove the nut and install a regular one.

How do you change a tire on a honda crv? I need to get the tire off the back door and change the driver side front tire. Where does the jack go?


The owners manual shows where to put the jack. I no manual sometimes there are illustrations where the jack is stored in its compartment. First loosen the lug nuts before you jack up the vehicle, prevents the tire from turning. After jacking up the vehicle finish removing the lug nuts then remove the tire. The spare tire on the door may have a locking lug nut which requires a key to unlock before removing the lug nuts. Key us usually on the ignition key ring. Remove the lug nuts and put tire on the drivers side. Tighten up the nuts on the wheel and after the car is let down from the jack, finish tightening the lug nuts.

Need to locate where the key to unlock rim to change flat tire is in the car


If you got the car new it is attached to your lug wrench. Otherwise it could be in the glove box or any place. It could have been forgotten when someone did tires, rotated tires, or had brakes checked.
