How Do You Detach a Car From a Tow Truck in GTA 5 PC?

Detaching a car from a tow truck in GTA 5 can be a tricky process, especially if you’re not familiar with the game. The good news is that it is possible to do so, and the process is relatively simple. Here’s what you need to know to get it done.

Step 1: Find a Tow Truck in the game. You can find them scattered around the various cities and highways of Los Santos. Once you have located one, park your car close by and make sure that your character is close enough to get in it.

Step 2: Approach the Tow Truck and press the “Enter Vehicle” button on your controller or keyboard. This will allow you to enter the vehicle.

Step 3: Press the “Detach Car” button on your controller or keyboard. This will cause your car to be detached from the tow truck. It will also cause it to fall down onto its wheels again.

Step 4: Exit the tow truck by pressing either “Exit Vehicle” or “Enter Vehicle” again, depending on which one you used when entering.


By following these steps, you should now be able to easily detach a car from a tow truck in GTA 5 PC. It’s important to remember that this process is only applicable for vehicles that are already attached to a tow truck and not for any other type of vehicle.

Hopefully this guide has been helpful in getting your car detached from the tow truck quickly and easily!
