Spray some lubricant around lugs and tap with hammer around lugs. take a large hammer or dead blow hammer and hit backside of tire all around while pulling. if that don't work get small hand held propane torch and heat area around lugs and repeat first step. its just been on for awhile and don't want to come off.

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...

Ford Escape 2006 lug nuts are off but the tire won't budge


Aluminum wheels, huh? VERY common problem. I use a VERY LARGE rubber mallot at the shop to "beat" the wheels of when they are corroded into place like that. If you have the vehicle on a jack-stand, you can also start one of the wheel nuts onto the stud a few turns just to keep the tire from flying off and hurting somebody....then sit down on the ground and KICK HARD to break the wheel loose from the hub. Just make sure the vehicle is properly supported so it does not come crashing down.

If you can manage to get the thing loose, It will help in the future if you sand the inside of the wheel center hole a little and coat it with anti-seize compound before reinstalling it on the vehicle.

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!

Flat tire


your owners manual is a valuable source of information, but if you do not have it here is what you do: the vehicle should be on a flat hard surface then you need to locate your jack and lug wrench , with the vehicle still on the groung loosen each lug nut about one turn then make sure that your emergency break is on, place the jack under the vehicle in an appropreate spot to raise the wheel off the groung, once the wheel is off the ground you can remove the lug nuts and pull the wheel off. Then you can put the spare tire on and replace the lug nuts tighten them in a criss cross patern as tight as you can get them then lower the vehicle back to the ground and check the lugs again. I hope this helps, good luck !!

I am trying to describe how to change a flat on our 2004 savana to my son


Blocking and properly supporting a Vehicle is not for the faint of heart & too many accidents have occurred by not following some basic safety practices . That being said I'd look through the owners manual to find the jack and tools to remove the spare & the flat. next would be setting the parking brake , loosen the lug nuts of the offending wheel , raise vehicle , remove lug nuts , replace wheel , Hand tighten lug nuts if possible or lightly snug them with the supplied wrench . Lower the vehicle and re-Tighten the lug nuts to prevent the tire from falling off. Also tightening them in this way will insure it doesn't fall off the jack and cause any other injuries or issues .

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.
