How To Remove Spare Tire From 2017 Nissan Pathfinder?

The amount of cargo capacity behind the third seat, 1,274 liters behind the second row, and 2,421 liters behind the first row is slightly more than it was in the previous model. The load floor lays flat when all of the back seats are folded, and all seat folding is manual. Nissan claims that the Pathfinder can fit a 48-by-96-inch slab of plywood behind the front seats. Although this is not unusual for vehicles in this size range, the space behind the third row would not be large enough to store a large stroller or other comparable objects. The 60-40 split third-row seats provide some flexibility for this space. Below the rearward load floor, there is more cargo room, as well as a 12-volt plug and some grocery hooks. Behind the rear bumper, a donut spare tire is installed on the outside of the car.

The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is propelled into the competitive end of the three-row SUV sector by these improvements, which make clever use of available space, simplify the design, and improve usability.

A Nissan Navara’s jack is kept at what location?

The floor compartments under the back seat are equipped with a jack and other wheel changing equipment. Lifting the seat will easily fold a jump seat.

Without a tool, how can I lower my spare tire?

This approach entails removing the key from the spare tire drop mechanism and lowering the tire with the included spare tire tools.

You will want some common equipment, such as joint pliers, small pieces of wood, and an optional helping hand, to make up for the absence of the factory key.

After gathering your tools, proceed with the removal of the spare tire as shown below.

Step #1: Get Under the Truck

As you are already aware, the tire hangs from the truck’s bottom toward the back of the vehicle. As a result, you will have to crawl under to get inside.

Keep in mind that safety comes first before attempting to enter the truck. Therefore, make sure you correctly park the car, on a surface that is as flat as possible, and with all of the brakes applied. These safety measures are designed to keep the car from moving while you work below it.

Step #2: Locate and Pull off the Guide Tube

Find the guiding tube underneath the car. Near the tire lies a long, black, plastic pipe. To uncover the spare tire drop mechanism, twist the tube back and forth while moving it toward the back of the car.

Step #3: Put a Wedge Between the Tire and the Vehicle

With the wood in the space between the tire’s top and the truck bed frame while still underneath the truck, move to the passenger side and pull down the tire there.

You might need an extra helping hand now to secure the wood while holding the tire in place.

The wood was installed so you could easily access the drop mechanism without having to keep pulling the tire out of the truck bed.

Step #4: Use Pliers to Pull off the Key

Find the spare tire drop mechanism key by putting your hand through the opening the wood has formed. When you locate the key—which resembles a wheel lug nut—pull it out with the jack or using pliers.

You might need to move the pliers while you pull the key occasionally if simply pulling the key is insufficient.

Step #5: Lower the Tire to the Ground

The hole that is left behind when the key is removed resembles the jack crank almost exactly. Therefore, you may lower and remove the spare tire with the factory tire tools. To lower the tire, insert the jack crank into the opening and turn counterclockwise.

Without a key, how can a spare tire be removed?

Your socket is now connected to the locking mechanism, and you may use it to unlock your spare tire. Start cranking after attaching a ratchet to your socket extension. You’ll notice the tire starting to descend if the socket has successfully clung to the lock. Once the spare tire is completely removed, keep cranking it until you can take it out from under the truck. You’ll discover that the socket is separated from your extension as you take it out, so you’ll need to get it.

How much time can you spend using a spare tire?

With a donut-shaped spare tire, you should not travel faster than 50 mph or farther than 50 miles. Long-distance driving with a spare tire could potentially harm the transmission and other components of the car.
