On this page, I'll include information that may help others get involved in collecting toy soldiers.

Changing a tire has nothing to do with toy soldiers, but if you have a flat on the way to the flea market...I will change this when I have more time...until then drive carefully.

How to Change a Tire

Step 1: Place car in park, set the emergency brake and flip on the flashers! Pry off the wheel cover with the wrench and loosen the wheel nuts.

Jack of a car; Actual size=240 pixels wide

Step 2: Put the jack under the car.

Step 3: Use the wrench to jack the car until the wheel is about three inches off the ground.

Step 4: Remove the nuts, mount the spare, and thread the nuts back on by hand.

Step 5: Lower the car, remove the jack, and then use the wrench to fully tighten the wheel nuts.
Drive immediately home and enroll in a course to help you learn about being a car owner. You need it if you are learning about changing a flat on a toy soldier site!!

Tools and Materials

In this area I'll include a list of all the material necessary to perform the tasks I'm describing on this page.
