How to change a tyre on a Volkswagon Golf

Updated July 20, 2017

The VW Golf is a small, two-door coupe. Knowing how to change a tyre on this vehicle is an important piece of information that you will need to know while you own the car. All four tyres are secured to the axle by lug nuts, the metal securing nuts that hold the tyres securely to the axle. This job should take you only 10 minutes for each tyre that needs to be changed.

Using the wheel brace, loosen the tyre's lug nuts from the tyre that you need to change. Position the car jack under the support rail on the frame. Raise the Golf off the ground using the jack. Completely remove the lug nuts and pull off the tyre.

Place the new tyre onto the frame of the VW Golf. Replace the lug nuts to the wheel. Lower the VW Golf back to the ground and remove the jack from under the fame.

Tighten the lug nuts using the tyre tool. Repeat these steps for any other tyres that need to be changed.


These steps will work for all 4 tyres.
