Steps to Fix a Flat Tire 

To fix a flat tire, the first thing to do would be to park on the side of the road and turn on your emergency lights. Next, access the tool kit and spare tire from the luggage compartment and bring them to the side of the flat tire. Using wooden wheel blocks to block the tires would ensure that the car wouldn’t roll over mid-repair.

Use the jack to raise the wheel after ensuring that the emergency brakes have been applied. Once the wheel is raised, use the wrench from the tool kit to loosen and remove the nuts and then pull the tire free. Replace the flat tire with the spare tire and screw the nuts back on with your hands before lowering the jack until the wheel touches the ground.
