Practice Makes Perfect

What better way for Steph to learn how to change a flat than have her rotate the tires, eh? I helped here with the left side and she did the right side all by herself.

I don't think that's what they meant when they called for 80 ft-lbs of torque.

"80 foot lbs", classic. Jack stands are your friend.

I have to second the jackstands. If it is worth doing, it is worth doing safely. She shouldn't be under the vehicle. Sitting on the ground she is not in a good position to move out of the way if the vehicle shifts. Admitedly this would be much much more likely on the side of the road than in your garage but it is still not best practice.
