A tire pump that gets stuck in the middle of the road or other obstacles can pose a health hazard to drivers and can cause a tire to slip out of the groove, or fall off, making it unsafe for the vehicle to proceed.
This is especially true if a tire is too thick to be easily driven on the highway, but it can also cause a problem if the tire falls off or gets caught in the tire well.
Here’s how to remove a tire pump: Remove the pump from the vehicle.
Unplug the hose from the pump.
Plug the hose into a hose clamp and then push the hose to the ground.
Turn the hose off and on, and check the hose clamp.
If the hose is still stuck in there, loosen the hose, pull the pump out, and start the pump back up again.
If it’s still stuck, put the pump away and try again.
Remove the tire pump.
Remove any rubber or rubber pads and replace them with a new tire.
If there is a new rubber or plastic tire, replace the pump with a fresh tire.
Check the pump to make sure the tire has the same shape.
If not, remove the old tire and reinstall the pump, but check it again before you begin to drive.
If you do not have a tire, check with a tire shop or tire shop employee.
If a tire has been stuck, the pump may not be strong enough to remove the tire.
Remove rubber or foam from the tire to loosen the pump and drive it back into the tire, or use a pump-puller to push the pump through the tire and onto the road.
Do not drive on the road, or you risk injuring your tires.
