If any of the tires is in any way damaged or lacking in tire profile, as shown here, the mechanics take note of that tire and order a new one from the tire shop. They then come around with this changing trailer which can carry two new tires and comes with all the necessary equipment to make the swap.
Before the new tire gets mounted, the safety and transport lid needs to be removed and the pressure needs to be checked, in case the tire had longer downtime after it’s mount onto the wheel rim. Therefore the refill valve is opened and the pressure is adjusted to 220 PSI with Nitrogen. Why Nitrogen? Check out the video in the right hand corner.
Then the mechanic gets this pneumatically powered hydraulic jack and places it under the landing gear wheel bogie and what happens next is so clever. They attach this tube onto the valve of the used tire and connect it to the jack. The high air pressure in the tire aids the jack as it lifts up the wheel bogie. This accelerates the lifting process immensely, and is a win win, as the tire will be released from it’s pressure after the change anyways. As the hydraulic jack extends, there is a given hoist point to prevent the jack from sliding off. Keep in mind the 747 landing gear tilts once it leaves the ground, so in this case only the two rear tires will lift up whilst the ones in front remain on ground. Whilst the jack is pumping up the rear part of wheel bogie the mechanic removes the protective wheel nut cover.
.... Thank you very much for your time! I hope you enjoy this video! Wishing you all the best!
