To store a flat tire and tools: 1. Remove the stow bolt extension rod and sleeve from the jack.

2. Screw the stow bolt extension rod and the sleeve into the existing spare tire hold-down bolt.

3. If your vehicle has aluminum wheels, first remove the center cap with your hand or the wheel wrench.

4. Place the flat tire face down into the spare tire tub.

5. Re-attach the wheel wrench to the jack.

6. Place the jack into the center of the flat tire, being careful not to scratch the inside of the wheel.

7. Remove the plastic sleeve from the stow bolt extension rod. Secure the jack and road wheel using the larger plastic retainer.

8. If used in the vehicle, place the smaller jack retainer nut in a safe place until you are ready to store the compact spare tire in the trunk again.

To store the compact spare tire and tools, follow the previous procedure without using the stow bolt extension rod and see Removing the Spare Tire and Tools and follow the removal procedure, in reverse, for the proper jack storage instructions for this vehicle.

The compact spare tire is for temporary use only.

Replace the compact spare with a full-size tire as soon as possible.
