Question by  carecal (17)

What are steps to how to change tire on an F-150?

My Ford truck doesn't have instructions for tire changing.

While the tire is still on the ground, loosen the lugnuts with your truck tire toolkit or a lugnut tool. You may need a hammer to pop them loose. Then jack up the truck so the tire spins freely. Remove the old tire with rim, and replace with a new tire and rim. Drop slowly and resecure the lugnuts tight.

Park truck on solid level surface. Use wheel chocks to block the axle that will not be jacked up. Use the jack to start lifting the vehicle up a couple of inches. Remove the hub cap if installed. Remove the lug nuts. Jack truck up far enough to remove wheel. Put on new wheel install lugs, lower and tighten.

Start by finding your tire release, usually around the rear bumper. Lower your spare down. Break the lug nuts loose and jack the truck up at the jack point. Remove the wheel and install the spare. Tight the lug nuts then lower the truck. Then re-torque the lug nuts do then appropriate amount.

Break lugs loose, jack truck up, remove lugs, pull tire off, install new tire, replace lug nuts and tighten lug nuts in a star pattern.

There is a long rod and handle under the seat or hood to lower the spare. Loosen the lug nuts before raising the truck. Lug nuts are tapered to match.

1. with truck still on the ground, only break loose the lug nuts on the wheel to come off. 2. jack up the truck and remove the tire. 3. put spare tire on and snug down the lug nuts. 4. lower vehicle and finish tightening the nuts.
