I’m Jeff Wong with Expert Village and today
we are going to learn how to change a flat tire. The jack point on each vehicle varies
so check your Owner’s Manual for assembly diagram that will show you the position where
your jack may be safely placed on the vehicle. In this vehicle, it happens to be the rear
axle. Be sure the ground is solid and is free from any debris before you jack up the vehicle.
So on this vehicle the jack point is located here on the rear axle. So once the jack is
in place and is squarely against the axle, slowly turn the crank and raise the vehicle.
You want to continue raising the vehicle until you have about a 1 inch gap between the tire
and the ground point. This should be a sufficient gap to remove and replace the tires. If a
vehicle is too high off the ground, it will make replacing the tire difficult.
