How to Change a Flat Tire
1. Find a safe spot to pull over: Making sure you are on a flat surface, pull onto the shoulder as far as possible and put your vehicle in park with the emergency brake. Try getting off at the nearest exit if you're on a highway.
2. Turn on your hazard lights: Being a safe distance from oncoming vehicles but visible due to your hazard lights will warn other drivers to avoid you.
3. Get the tools from your trunk (jack, wrench and spare tire): These will help you remove and change the flat tire. If you do not have these tools or need further assistance, don't hesitate to call our Honda Roadside Assistance: 1-800-465-PLUS (7587)
4. Use the wrench to loosen the lug nuts: The lug nuts are fasteners that secure your hubcap. Loosen them by turning the wrench left.
5. Use the jack to lift your vehicle: Insert the jack within the small divot in your vehicle's framework near the flat tire. Your owner's manual will provide more detailed information on the exact positioning. Jack up your vehicle until your tire is roughly 6 inches off the ground.
6. Put on your spare tire: Line up the lug nuts with the holes on your spare tire and push it onto the wheel base as far as it can go.
7. Tighten the lug nuts - but not all the way: You want the lug nuts to be secure just enough to bring your vehicle and tire back down to ground level.
8. Lower your vehicle to the ground and secure the lug nuts: By using the jack, safely bring your vehicle back down to ground level. Remove the jack and fully tighten the lug nuts.
9. Put away your tools: Make sure to put your tools away and no debris is left on the side of the road.
10. Drive safe and be cautious: Remember you are driving on a spare tire. Get to your destination safely.
