How to Remove Jack from Jeep Wrangler

There’s never a good time or place to acquire a flat tyre, but when you’re out on the trail in your Jeep Wrangler and far from civilization, the timing and location are especially irritating. But you’re not going to just sit on a log and hope for the best. You have the knowledge and skills to change that tyre and get back to your off-road adventure in no time.

You’ll know one of your tyres is flat if you hear that thumpa sound while driving down the road. If you don’t have access to roadside assistance, you’ll be changing it yourself soon. Don’t worry if the mere notion of using a car jack causes you to break out in a cold sweat, it happens to a lot of people.

The (Tire) Trade’s Instruments

To begin, inventory your tire-changing gear; fortunately, your Wrangler comes equipped with all of the necessary equipment. The following is a list of everything you’ll need to change the tyre on your Jeep Wrangler:

  • A jack is used to raise the Wrangler off the ground so that the tyre can be accessed.
  • A lug wrench is used to unscrew the lug nuts from the hubcap and remove the flat tyre.
  • Because the whole objective is to have a spare tyre.

Let’s get to the good stuff

1.To determine the proper location of the jack under your Jeep Wrangler, consult the owner’s manual. Ascertain that the car is in park and that the emergency brake is activated. Place the jack on the axle and begin turning the rotatable clasp counter-clockwise until the issue tyre is elevated off the ground.

2. Remove the five lug nuts from the hubcap with the lug wrench. To avoid damaging the wheel studs, remove the lug nuts and pull the wheel straight away from the car.

3. Remove the three lug nuts that secure the spare tyre to the Jeep’s back end with the lug wrench. Remove the spare tyre from the vehicle by pulling it straight out and away.

4. To secure the wheel to the Jeep, replace the flat tyre with the spare and follow the instructions in reverse. Tighten lug nuts with the lug wrench, then lower the Wrangler with the jack and return your tools to their proper places. Carry on with your excursion in the great outdoors.
