How To: Changing a Spare Tire on an Audi

First off I know these pictures were taken under optimal conditions and that you will most likely not have a pneumatic air gun to remove the lug nut’s and for that matter it will probably be dark, cold and rainy when you have replace your tire. Replacing a tire on an Audi is very similar to most other manufactures and there are really only a few steps. First remove the tire: While your vehicle is on the ground break the lug nuts loose but do not remove the lug nuts completely, you will then be able to lift (jack) up the vehicle. After you have placed the jack in the proper lift location under the car, raise the vehicle and remove all 5 lug nuts and carefully remove the wheel (I empathize carefully because the average wheel and tire weigh about 25 LBS (Pounds). Now you can take your spare and put it on and reinstall the 5 lug nut, but only tighten the lug nuts finger tight. At this point lower the vehicle and torque the lug nuts to the manufactured recommended specs making sure to use the star technique – tighten one lug nut then tighten the lug nut across from it not beside it, hence the star analogy. Congratulations you have just successfully changed a tire on your Audi – now drive it into your local Audi dealer and have them check the work and reset your tire pressure monitoring system. I can’t take any responsibility if the process does not go as smoothly as pictured. if you are not comfortable performing this procedure call Audi Roadside assistance at 1.800.411.9988 or if you have an Audi R8 1.866.478.3456 – Good luck and contact me with any questions or leave a comment below.
