Let me tell you, that jack is a PITA!

A quick tip should you be so unfortunate to have to change your tire: when turning the jack, make sure you are parallel to the pavement. I took me half the way up before I finally got exhausted enough to lower myself to that level. Then it went much easier.

I don't have my warranty info handy right now. Anybody know what the warranty is on the tires? I have the Geolanders (Toyo?).

Thanks. And happy RAVing this long weekend (for us 'mericans!) :D

The first week I got my RAV I wanted to make sure I knew how to remove the spare tire cover on my Limited. I also took a look at the jack. I couldn't get it out of the wheel well. It was too tight. I finally had to get a screwdriver and put the shaft in the eyelet of the jack handle. I'm keeping the screwdriver under the cargo area just in case.

From the owners manual,,,

To remove the jack, turn the jack joint
by hand.
To remove: Turn the joint in direction
1 until the jack is free.
To store: Turn the joint in direction 2
until the jack is firmly secured to prevent
it flying forward during a collision
or sudden braking.
To remove the spare cover:
1. Open the back door. Unhook the
latch handle which on the bottom
of the spare tire cover.
To prevent theft, the latch handle can
be released only when the back door
is opened.
