How To Remove Spare Tyre From Ford Falcon Ute Step By Step

Got a flat tyre on your falcon ute? Don’t panic!

You can easily remove the spare tyre and change it yourself.

Follow these instructions to easily change your spare tyre in case of an emergency:

Step 1: Locating the Spare Tyre

The first step in removing the spare tyre from your Ford falcon ute is to locate it.

You’ll find the spare tyre positioned underneath the vehicle at the rear. To access it, you may need to crawl under the car slightly.

Step 2: Removing the Spare Tyre Cover

Once you’ve located the spare tyre, the next task is to remove the cover protecting it.

You can use a screwdriver or pliers carefully to remove it. Be gentle during this process to avoid any damage to the cover or the spare tyre.

Step 3: Lowering the Spare Tyre

Locate the jack handle at the back of your falcon. Insert the jack handle into the hole in the rear bumper designated for this purpose.

To lower the tyre, turn the jack handle counterclockwise. Keep turning until the spare tyre is fully lowered.

Step 4: Removing the Spare Tyre

With the spare tyre fully lowered, you can proceed to remove it from underneath the vehicle.

Carefully slide the tyre out of its position under the car and place it on the ground nearby.

Step 5: Replacing the Flat Tyre

Now that the spare tyre is free, you can use it to replace the flat tyre on your falcon.

Consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual for specific instructions on how to replace the tyre properly.

Step 6: Raising the Vehicle

After successfully replacing the flat tyre with the spare, it’s time to raise the vehicle back to its normal position.

Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the correct procedure to use the jack and safely raise the car.

Step 7: Securing the Spare Tyre

Slide the tyre back under the vehicle and use the jack handle to raise it back into place.

Make sure it is firmly secured. Then, put the cover back on and fasten it using the screws or clips you removed earlier.


Knowing how to do this simple task can save you time, money, and stress when faced with a flat tyre situation.

If you ever find yourself in a situation where you need to remove a spare tyre from your falcon, simply follow the steps outlined in this guide.

Safe driving!
