Mazda 3 Owners Manual: Changing a Flat Tire

NOTE If the following occurs while driving, it could indicate a flat tire.

If you have a flat tire, drive slowly to a level spot that is well off the road and out of the way of traffic to change the tire.

Stopping in traffic or on the shoulder of a busy road is dangerous.

WARNING Be sure to follow the directions for changing a tire: Changing a tire is dangerous if not done properly. The vehicle can slip off the jack and seriously injure someone.

No person should place any portion of their body under a vehicle that is supported by a jack.

Never allow anyone inside a vehicle supported by a jack: Allowing someone to remain in a vehicle supported by a jack is dangerous. The occupant could cause the vehicle to fall resulting in serious injury.

NOTE Make sure the jack is well lubricated before using it.

  1. Park on a level surface off the right-ofway and firmly set the parking brake.
  2. Put a vehicle with an automatic transaxle in Park (P), a manual transaxle in Reverse (R) or 1, and turn off the engine.
  3. Turn on the hazard warning flasher.
  4. Have everyone get out of the vehicle and away from the vehicle and traffic.
  5. Remove the jack, tool, and spare tire .
  6. Block the wheel diagonally opposite the flat tire. When blocking a wheel, place a tire block both in front and behind the tire.
