Written Instructions to Remove Spare Tire

The tire jack and spare tire tools are in the trunk floor compartment. Open the compartment and along the back side is a panel you pop off. Find tools in there.

Remove the little plastic cap next to where the back door attaches to the base of the trunk.

Insert the long hook tool into the hole and wiggle it around until you feel it click into place. Attach the crow bar tool to the end of the pole you are working with to make it easy to turn. If you can’t get it to click check out the video it shows what the actual mechanism looks like.

Turn left to lower the tire all the way to the ground.

Once on the ground remove the section holding the tire up by tilting it and pulling it out.

Your tire is now free.

Turn the tool right to raise a tire (after you re-insert the metal holder attached to chain) or only raise the chain.

Put your tools back in the proper place so you don’t loose them.

Note this should work for a Toyota Sequoia 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017.
