Mercedes-Benz E-Class: How to Change a Tire

THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO THE MERCEDES-BENZ E-CLASS W211/W212 (2002-PRESENT). Even under the best outdoor conditions, a flat tire is never fun to have. But knowing how to replace it can go a long way toward making the best of a bad situation, particularly at night when there's no "tire changer" professional to do it for you. Replacing a flat tire is simple and something even the most novice DIY'ers can do. When shopping for a Mercedes-Benz E-Class or if you already drive one, make sure there is a spare tire and tire changing kit in the trunk. You'll be glad you did. A periodic visual inspection is the best way to determine if your brake lines are problem-free. If rust, kinks, or brake fluid from a leak is found, do not wait to repair them! If you choose to complete the repair yourself, be aware that brake fluid is corrosive.
