Steps to Change a Flat Tire  

You will have to first access the spare tire to change a flat tire. The spare tire needs to be lowered with the hatch door open and using the long end of the jack. Turn the jack handle in a counterclockwise direction to lower the spare tire.  

Ensure that your parking brakes are engaged, and you are parked away from oncoming traffic. Place the jack under the frame rails and crank the wheel up. Remove the hub cap and use a lug wrench to remove the nuts.

We advise you to apply a liberal coat of WD-40 if you cannot loosen the nut. Now mount the new tire and tighten the lug nuts. Replace the hub cap and lower the jack until the wheel touches the level ground. You can place the flat tire in the compartment where you access the spare tire. Your flat tire situation is fixed. As a precautionary method, have your tires checked at the nearest service station to ensure that the tire pressure is optimal and there are no other emergencies for the car.
