    Tyre buggered

    Young son driving the car hit the curb a bit too quick and damaged the sidewall on the front driver's side tyre. At least he learned how to change a tyre.

    Before I had a Land Rover I did not have any torque wrenches. Now I have three.

    and where the jack is, and where the bonnet release is, and how LR wheels locate differently to others,

    did he also learn where his wallet was?

    Locate differently? Can you expand on this curiosity.

    Locate differently? The Valente has wheel studs not nuts, painful to fit. The LR locates on the studs the same as just about every other thing. He knows where the bonnet release is after the car got a bit hot!!
    Since we were at home he used the trolley jack and the impact driver and then the torque wrench.

    Exactly.

    Anything post D1 and Older Defender are spigot located, stud retained. Like almost every vehicle.

    D1, RRC and other 165.1 PCD just use studs to locate - nothing magic

    Maybe learned the 13 number for the RACV, that's how a lot of kids get tyres changed these days. Parents don't want them hurting themselves by taking a risk.
