Changing a Tire
Honda Accord



Changing a tire can be
done safely in a short
time when you understand
the process, and know
where the tire and tools
are located.

A tire may have to be
changed along side the
road because of a flat
tire, or at home

when you want to
exchange summer or
winter tires.

Find a level spot to work,
if there is a slight incline,
block the tires on the low
side, to keep the car from
rolling.
Place the car in park and
pull the emergency
brake.

Open the trunk, on the
right hand side there is
a plastic panel, turn the
knob, one quarter of a
turn and the panel will
open, remove the panel.

The car jack is located
inside the panel.
Turn the end of the
jack screw eyelet
counter-clockwise, this
will cause the jack to
loosen and be removable.

of a Honda Accord


Spare tire and tools


Lift the panel on the bottom
of the trunk, located above
the spare tire, where you
find the spare tire and tools
that are needed to loosen
the wheel nuts, and work
the jack.

Remove the spare tire and
tool pouch. Place a piece of
cardboard or equivalent
matting near the work area
to kneel on.

With the tire iron, loosen
slightly, all the wheel nuts
on the wheel that you are
working on, while the tire
still rests on the ground.

Under the car on the frame of
the car, about a foot in from
the wheel, is an extended
tab of metal extending
downward a half inch, and
about three inches
long.

Place the jack beneath this
tab. With the jack beneath
the metal tab, crank the
jack by hand until the jack
is in place and snug
between the car and
ground.

Use the crank assembly,
the tire iron connected to
the metal part to form
a crank.

Crank clockwise to raise
the car high enough to
clear the wheel from the
ground.

Loosen all the wheel nuts
on the wheel with the tire
iron, and finish removing
the nuts by hand.

Place the nuts in a neat
pile where they are out
of the way.

Lift the winter tire off
the wheel studs, and
place the summer tire
onto the wheel studs.

Start tightening all the
wheel nuts by hand,
then with the wheel
wrench until snug.

Crank the jack
anti-clockwise to lower
the car, until the tire
just touches the
ground.
Tighten more with the
tire iron.

Crank the jack all the
way down and remove
the jack.

With the short tire iron
tighten all the wheel
nuts as tight as you can.
Tighten in a cross hatch
fashion, see top picture
for tightening sequence.

Place the jack and tools
back in the trunk where
you got them.
Turn the jack eyelet
clockwise until the jack
is snug, this will stop
any jack bumping and
rattling noises.

Replace the jack cover,
turn the knob one
quarter turn to secure.

Place tool pouch in
the spare tire wheel
well, and close cover
over the wheel.

Tip



If you need to change
a tire on the road, drive
slow and pull off to a
safe location.

It is very dangerous to
park on a busy road,
a car coming behind
may not realize you are
parked and ram into
the back of your car.

Pull off as far as you
can and Use your 4
way flashers.

Tires rim retaining nuts
need to be retightened,
re-torque (85-100 ft lbs)
after driving the first
100 km.
If not retightened, the
nuts may work loose
and fall off, the tire may
leave the vehicle.


Winter tires metal rims
may rust because of
the elements.

When placing the winter
rims, on the vehicle,
coat the wheel hub
beneath the rim with a
coating of a wax base
or similar product to
prevent the metal rim
from rusting to the hub,
which can make it very
difficult to remove
in the Spring.

Using a Mechanical
Assist Device


Tire Buddy.

leverage advantage.

Which means you can lift
a 60 pound tire with rim
with only little effort, no
more busting the back.

distance of 2 inches which

tire to match stud bolts.

Simply remove existing
tire from vehicle using
Tire Buddy, slide device

manual lifting.

Roll in tire to replace
existing tire, slide
Tire Buddy under tire,
use mechanical to lift
and roll into place, no
manual lifting.
