Tuesday: on my way to pick up my kids from Daycare and that pesky amber flat tire light comes on. Quick visual check of pressure and the front left is reading 25 psi. I get home and air up to 33. Wednesday i don't take the car out, Thursday pick up my girls and everything is fine. Friday.. That pesky light comes on again.. Something serious must be going on.
So i start getting out my patch kit, compressor, jack, etc.. And my oldest daughter asks is she can help. How can I say no!
i get the car up and tire off, and with her at my side we start inspecting and she finds the problem before i do.. A 1" self-tapping screw.
Time to get the pliers!
now for the patch!
Air-up and check pressure!
A job that should have taken 20 Minutes took over an hour, but it was great bonding over something i actually enjoy! And the look on her face after she pulled the relief valve on the compressor.. Priceless! lol!
