How To Get A Spare Tire Down Without The Tool

When your car breaks down on the side of the road, you might be tempted to reach for the tool box and grab a jack. However, that’s not always the best option. In this blog post, we will explore how to get a spare tire down without the need for a jack. Not only is this process much easier, it can also save you time and hassle in the long run. So read on to learn how to get a spare tire down without the need for a tool.

What You’ll Need

If you’re like most drivers, you probably rely on a spare tire to get you through a flat. But what if your spare doesn’t have a tool kit? Don’t worry, this guide will teach you how to get a spare tire down without the need for any tools!

First, check to see if your spare has a lug wrench or an adjustable wrench. If it does, these tools will allow you to remove the bolts that hold the spare tire onto the axle. If your spare doesn’t have either of these tools, then you’ll need to find another way to remove the tire. There are several options available, but the easiest is likely to use a jack and ropes. Place the jack at least two feet above the axle and tie one end of the rope around it. Then attach the other end of the rope to something sturdy, like a tree branch or car bumper. Lift up on the jack until the wheel pops off of the axle.


1) If your car has a trunk, place the spare tire inside.
2) Turn off the engine and remove the keys.
3) Remove the front bumper cover (using a flathead screwdriver).
4) Locate the two screws on either side of the battery terminal cover, below the grille.
5) Remove both screws and lift up the cover.
6) Unplug the wire harness near the battery and remove the battery (be sure to disconnect all other wires first).
7) Position the spare tire on top of the battery so that it sits in between two tabs on either side of it.
8) Replace the battery cover, screws, and wiring harness, then reattach front bumper cover.
9) Start your car and check that everything works properly.

Warning: Spare Tire Removal Is A Dangerous Job

When it comes to getting a spare tire off your car, there are plenty of ways to go about it without the use of a tool. The most common way is to place the car on jack stands and use a screwdriver to pry up on the lug nuts. However, this can be dangerous if done incorrectly as the car can come loose and fall. Another option is to place a piece of plywood between the wheel and tire and use a breaker bar to remove the tire. While this method is less risky, it can be difficult to get a good grip on the wheel and tire. If you’re having trouble removing the spare, it’s best to seek out help from a professional.

How to Do It Safely

When you tire goes flat, your first instinct will be to grab a tool and try to change the tire. However, there are several safe ways to get a spare tire down without tools.
One way is to use the jacking point of your car as a lever. Put your weight on the car so that the jack points up and pull on the handle until the spare can be slid off the wheel.
Another method is use a bicycle pump to force air out of the tire. Place the pump over the bead of the tire, hold down one end of the hose and start pumping until you hear air flowing out of both ends of the hose. Continue pumping until you reach maximum pressure and then release it. Try not to over inflate your tire, as this can lead to dangerous blows in t
