  • This gives instructions on exactly how to position the jack under your car.
  • Some are easier to remove than others. If you can't remove your hubcap by hand, you may need a socket to loosen the bolt covers. Put the socket over the covers and loosen - you may need to do more than one in order to pry the hubcap loose.
  • ;Use the lug wrench by placing it on the tire’s lug nuts.
  • ;Check your owner’s manual of your vehicle on how to correctly place the jack under your car. Typically, the manual is located in the glove compartment.
  • ;Crank the tire jack until the wheel is high above ground, enough for you to safely remove it.
  • ;Remove the loosened lug nuts from the wheel. You should be able to do this by hand.
  • ;Line up the lugs with the holes in the wheel and slide on.
  • ;Lower the tire jack until the wheel is firmly touching the ground.
  • ;The lug nuts have to be fastened securely on for safety, so use your lug wrench for this.
  • Spare tires are usually smaller than regular tires and if it's your first time changing a flat, you'll want to be extra cautious.
  • ...just in case this happens again!
  • In case you can't change the flat yourself, and only have to travel a short distance to someone who can help.
