DIY: Changing Your Tire

You’re driving down the road and all of the sudden you get a flat tire. Rather than panicking, you can change the tire on your own. Most vehicles are equipped with all of the tools that you need.

Pull over to the side of the road is so that you are safe. Grab your owner’s manual as well as the tools in the back of your car. Most spare tires are located in the trunk or underneath the vehicle. You will need the torque wrench, jack, and spare tire. If it’s at night, be sure to grab a flashlight, too.

You will need to loosen the lug nuts, raise the vehicle, and remove the flat tire. You can then put on the spare and lower the vehicle.

At the our service center at Volvo Cars Edinburg in Edinburg, TX, we can then get you all set with a new tire.
