Steps to Change a Flat Tire

Mercedes provides a tool kit with all its vehicles, including a pair of gloves, a jack, a lug wrench, and the owner’s manual. The owner’s manual will have a detailed explanation of using the specific tools. A tire choke is also included in the kit, which will ensure that your vehicle does not roll, in case the parking brakes are not engaged.

Now, use the wrench to loosen the nuts a little bit, and then use the special key that came with your car to remove one of the lug nuts to not otherwise activate the anti-theft systems. Now, consult the owner’s manual to find the correct crevice to fix your jack and place it accordingly.

Raise the vehicle, take the nuts off, and replace the wheel with the spare tire. Screw the nuts back on with your hands until the tire is reasonably seated, and then lower the jack and use the wrench to tighten the nuts and make sure the wheel is sitting correctly on its hinges.

The flat tire was fixed in 10-15 minutes, and you didn’t even have to wait for roadside assistance which has most probably saved you valuable time in your travel.
