I assume locally will be cheaper as such heavy things involve a fair shipping cost added in price online.
You may want to check this in an FNG. They should be able to tell where they get it from or even better they may get it for you if you know them well

Default Re: Pictorial Guide: How to change a flat tyre!

Came from my morning trek, parked the car, saw my neighbour struggling to remove the tyre jack from the mount in his trunk as his tyre punctured. Apparently there is a holder to which the jack is mounted, and he was not able to remove it. I have seen this for the first time smh, i tried and failed too. Thought of lending my own jack from my Dzire, found out that even in my car, the jack was mounted in a holder, and I could not remove it!

I have previously changed tyres in a wagon r only twice and the jack was not mounted on a holder rather it was placed in thermocol space.

How do you remove the jack from the holder?

Have not seen how it is with the Dzire, but can you check if the jack has been "jacked up" to fit tightly in its spot? This is true if the hack itself is a bottle jack.

Unless this was obvious and you have already checked it, in which case, a photo will help to understand how it is locked in better.

Oh my god I had never thought of it !

You are right! Although it was a scissor jack but it was tightened (jacked) on the holder, loosened it and it came out! Wow, thanks Sir!
