The experience I am going to tell you about is that I tried to replace the tire of my car but failed. It was last month when I went on a self-drive tour to a tourist attraction in the countryside. The journey went pretty well at the beginning. I soon left the city and embarked on the highway.
Then a warning suddenly popped up on the car screen, saying the front-right tire was losing pressure and suggesting I stopped immediately and checked. I pulled over by the road and found there was a nail in it. Since I was on the highway, it was unlikely that I could get any immediate help. So I decided to replace the tire by myself, which I had never done before.
I grabbed out my cellphone and searched how to do it on the internet. Luckily there were plenty of articles about this. And some of them not only elaborated the specific procedures, but also added pictures and videos to provide guidance. This article is from laokaoya website. It seemed like a piece of cake. I found the spare wheel, the lifting jack and a wrench in the trunk, and then began my operation following the instruction of one article, but was stuck at the first step. I could not find the groove on the bottom of the car which was supposed to match the lifting jack and prevented it from moving.
Half an hour later, I gave up. I called 12122, the highway rescue number and waited for the professionals to come. I was frustrated, not only because my travel plan fell through, but also because I could not manage to complete such a simple task.
