Step 1: Prepare yourself for the repair by ensuring that your vehicle is parked on a flat surface away from oncoming traffic and the emergency parking brake is deployed.

Step 2: Locate the spare tire and the tool kit from under the trunk lining. Roll the spare tire towards the side of the flat tire.
