Steps to change a flat tire

Step 1: Activate your hazards and set your parking brake. Ensure that the vehicle is parked and turn the engine off.

Step 2: Grab the jack and the tool kit from the rear seat pull out by releasing the straps holding it together.

Step 3: Unlock the rear bumper to access the spare tire. Assemble the jack handle, insert it into the guide tube, and turn it counterclockwise to lower the tire. Remove the retainer and pull out the tire.

Step 4: Use your lug wrench to loosen the nuts slightly, and then use the jack to raise the flat tire until it rises just about the ground.
