  1. ive looked in my truck, chevy blazer ls. I cant find it… i bought it used, it might have been taken out or something.

  2. The crank and other tools are usually in a side compartment (Isuzu Rodeo), in a compartment under the carpet, or in a compartment inside the rear door (LC200).

  3. Thanks so much for the video.i got a 99 jimmy that i was under forever trying to unscrew that thing off the tire and i couldnt.i than tried jacking the spare tire up to see if i could get it off and that wasnt even the right way lol.i never knew i had that hole for that,great video.

  4. Big thanks to Jeff. This video came in handy this afternoon as I helped a woman with a flat.  I’m not mechanical at all, so this saved the day!

  5. I did have a flat on my 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe a while back. I quickly located the spare suspended below the stowage boxes. Now, as I had never lowered the spare prior, I was unsure as to where the crank to lower it was. I quickly found a small round access panel (more like a plastic plug) to where the crank was. This access panel had a slot in it for a screw driver to remove it. ‘GREAT’ I didn’t have a screw driver. I eventually found a 25 cent piece to remove the plug. The rest was easy…

  6. Personally, I don’t need a video on how to change a wheel with a flat tire. My dad taught me that when I was 10 years old. However, I would wager that the majority of drivers wouldn’t have a clue on how to swap a flat for the ‘doh’nut.
