  1. If people would just read their owners manuals they wouldn’t need this. It’s in every car so why do people need to be told again?

      Haha, that is true Allen, but plenty of used cars no longer have their owner’s manuals. Also, many owner’s manuals seem to have been written in complete gibberish and are quite difficult to understand – especially if they have clearly been written in one language and then translated for other markets. So hopefully a few people find it helpful!

    Wouldn’t it be easier to just call the AA?

      Well, yes…

  3. Thanks, very helpful while I was stranded on the A1 and the breakdown cover (who I won’t name) said they couldn’t get there for an hour and a half. After reading this, I managed to do it myself!

      Glad to hear it! Make sure get your damaged tyre repaired or replaced in case you get stuck again – you’d be amazed at how often it happens.
