- Stop in a safe place.
- Find the jack, the tire lock nut (if you have one), and a cross wrench.
- Place the jack below the base recommended by the manufacturer and ensure that your vehicle stands firm, helping you with the lever. Adjust the hydraulic jack, but don’t lift the car just yet.
- Loosen the lug nuts but do not remove them altogether.
- Now yes, lift the car with the help of the jack until the punctured tire is entirely above the ground.
- Finish loosening the nuts and remove the tire.
- Find and place the spare wheel. Tighten the nuts but do not fully tighten them.
- Lower the car so that the wheel touches the ground, and remove the jack.
- Lastly, tighten the spare tire nuts as much as possible.
Knowing how to do this makes the difference between making a brief stop to change the damaged tire and continuing on the road without problem or spending hours waiting for a tow truck to arrive or someone to help you. How to do it correctly? Follow these steps:
