What happens on a game drive?

How do I change my wheel on a 4x4 vehicle?

Firstly, you must try and get your vehicle as level as possible. However, once you get your vehicle levelled - place steady rocks around the other three wheels. After that, ensure that the car won't roll or move while you’re changing the tyres. Once you’re done - you may remove the spare wheel.

Before jacking, ensure that you have a nice and securing jacking point underneath the axle. Once you’ve raised the vehicle sufficiently, you may remove the remaining wheel nuts as well as the wheel - and replace it with the spare wheel. Note, It's important to tighten them alternatively, so every second nut can swing across nicely. To know more about changing a wheel on a 4x4 vehicle, watch this video clip - http://bit.ly/2h5daLK
