Got a flat tire today (rear right) on my daily car 1.9TD... I thought that the noise is coming from the engine :roll:

Touch wood, and not wanting to tempt fate but it's been a long time now since I've had a puncture. Last one was in a Xantia V6 due to spilt nails after repairs to a gate I passed through!

Same here. Used to get them weekly through screws chucked around at work but haven't had a puncture in about eight years now, since they changed the skip arrangements.

Indeed, driving near skips is always risky. I always worry when I visit the local tip for that very reason...

OK, I'll dig it out and send it to your email address Xantos. Is the one you have registered with the forum OK for that?

Maybe I'm just an old-fashioned person but I just can't get on with instructional videos.. For me it has to be on paper...

Yes, me as well Jim....But it is good to run this into the brain a few times IF you have never been inside there before.

I agree with Stickyfinger. Video helps you visualize how to do it.
