How to Change a Flat Tire
____ Completely remove the lug nuts.
____ Turn the jack clockwise to raise the car.
____ Park the car on a hill and shift the transmission into Neutral. Do NOT set the parking brake!
____ Remove the flat tire.
____ Completely tighten all lug nuts in a star pattern before removing the jack.
____ Install the spare tire with the valve stem should be facing out.
____ Park on level ground, set the parking brake, and shift the transmission into Park. Manual transmission vehicles should be shifted into 1st gear or Reverse.
____ Partially loosen the lug nuts ½ turn using a star pattern.
____ Jump up and down on the front or rear bumper to see if the car will stay on the jack.
____ Jack up the car high enough to remove the flat tire and install the spare tire.
____ Lower the jack by turning the handle counterclockwise so that the tire is touching the ground.
____ Take off the hub cap (if necessary).
____ Crawl under the car to see if the jack is securely attached to the frame of the car.
____ Put a heavy object such as a brick in front of the tire diagonally opposite of the flat tire (although the video does not mention this, it is a good idea to put an object on both sides of the tire).
____ Put the jack under the frame of the car near the wheel with the flat tire.
____ Tighten the lug nuts a few turns in a star pattern.
