There are a few steps to changing a flat tire aside from just taking the tire off and replacing it with your spare. When you realize that your tire is flat, you need to move your vehicle to a safe location. Turn on your hazard lights while in Mystic, CT so that other drivers know that there is an issue.

Make sure the parking brake is engaged to keep the car from moving while you're changing the tire. You can also place wedges behind the wheels to keep them from rolling. Take the hub cab or the cover off of the wheel before removing the lug nuts. Keep track of the lug nuts so that they can be put back on the tire when it's in place.

Jack the vehicle up off the ground so that you can remove the tire. Put the spare tire on before tightening the lug nuts. You can take your car to Valenti Volkswagen of Mystic if there are issues with changing the flat.
