How to Change a Mercedes-Benz Flat Tire

 

Ending up with a flat tire is never fun, nor is it ever convenient, but fixing the bad tire doesn’t have to be the sort of thing that completely ruins your day as long you know what you’re doing. Here at Fields Motorcars, we have put together this quick written tutorial that shows you how to change a flat so you can get up and running again in no time.

#1 Locate Your Spare

The first step is getting into the trunk of your Mercedes-Benz automobile and locating the spare tire, which is under the floor of the trunk itself. Just lift the floor and your spare, your jack, and your tire iron should all be there.

#2 Loosen the Wheel Lugs

Use the tire iron to loosen the lug nuts, but there is a very good chance that they’ll be on there really tight. Knowing that, be prepared to apply a great deal of counterclockwise force to get them off.

# Jack Up the Car

Find the spot under your car where the jack is meant to go, then raise your vehicle with the jack until the flat tire is completely off the ground.

#4 Replace the Tire

With no lugs, the bad tire should slide right off, at which point you can slide your spare tire right back on.

#5 Lower the Vehicle

Hand-screw the lugs back on and then lower the vehicle to the ground with the jack. Once lowered, use the tire iron to get the wheel lugs as tight as you reasonably can.

#6 Get to the Dealership

A common mistake with fixed flats is believing spares will hold up indefinitely. They are not mean to do that, so drivers should get to their car dealerships as soon as reasonably possible for a more permanent solution.

If you do all this, you will be back up and running in no time. Don’t let a spare tire in or around Plant City, FL keep you down!
