Changing Wheels

Unsafe Stopping

Other vehicles could collide with your vehicle if you are parked in a dangerous position.

  • If you have a flat tire, move a safe distance off the road. Turn the emergency flasher on and use other warning devices to alert other motorists.
  • Do not remain in the car. Someone approaching from the rear may not realize your vehicle is stopped and cause a collision.

Stopping Over Nearby Flammable Matter

Exhaust fumes and the exhaust system are very hot when the engine is running. The exhaust system remains hot for some time after the vehicle is turned off.

  • Do not park your vehicle in areas where the hot exhaust system may come in contact with dry grass, brush, fuel spill or other flammable material.

Jacking Risks

If the vehicle is not secured, or incorrectly secured, during a wheel change, it could move unexpectedly or fall from the car jack.

  • Passengers must not be in the vehicle when it is jacked up.
