How to Release the Spare Tire for a KIA Sedona

by Vee Enne

The Kia Sedona is a mid-size minivan produced by Kia Motors. The spare tire is stored on the underside of the vehicle, under the right-side cargo door. The bolt is located in a recessed area that is protected by a small square plastic covering. To remove the spare tire, find and remove the bolt cover, then use your lug nut wrench to loosen the bolt holding the tire.

Remove the spare tire fastener's plastic cover.

Place the lug nut wrench onto the lug nut holding the tire onto the bolt.

Turn the wrench in a counter-clockwise direction until the tire is released and reaches the ground.
