Hi! This is John on behalf of In this video clip, I will be taking you through step 6 in our procedure for replacing a flat tire. The next thing that we need to do is lower the car down on to our spare tire and we are going to follow the same procedures as we did for raising it. We are going to go ahead and lower our emergency jack here and as we continue to get it a little bit lower, the tire is going to start to touch the ground. Now as it starts to touch the ground, you are going to want to make sure to watch and make sure that the tire doesn’t tip out and that it is sitting squarely. Go ahead and continue lowering your jack until your tire just hits the ground where it won’t roll anymore in the air.
