1. Pop that trunk
That’s where you’ll locate a gangling tire and automobile jack. Don’t forget—you’ll need a wrench as well.
2. Line it up
Once you’re beside a flat, line adult your jack with a automobile door’s indicator nearby a bottom (Make certain we have a solid, turn aspect underneath—slopes are bad news).
3. Loosen a lugs
Before we jack your car, disencumber a wheel’s lugs—once a weight is off, this will make it easier to mislay them.
4. We have lift off!
Well, almost—before that you’ll need to adjust a jack into place and tie it to a door’s sub-frame. Once that’s done, use a push and finish a lift.
5. Out with a old…
Now that it’s jacked, finish stealing a circle lugs. Then we can reinstate a prosaic with your gangling before we start tightening a lugs once some-more (we find tightening them in a star pattern—up-down-side-side—works best).
6. Get low
Now that a new tire is firmly on, retreat a jack and reduce a automobile behind on down. With a weight behind on a tire, finish tightening a lugs and you’re prepared to roll.
Pro tip: Because it’s a spare, try to expostulate with a 50/50 rule—drive no faster than 50 MPH, for no some-more than 50 miles in total.
