This is my first time watching people replacing the bus tire. Luckily it’s not my bus. The incident happen at Sg. Nibong Bus Terminal in Penang. While waiting to board into my bus from Penang to KL, I saw some people near the platform gathering out of the bus.
They must have delayed about an hour from the original schedule. The bus only carries 18 passengers which means that the bus is very special or I can call it as executive or business class. Three seats in each row and there are only 6 rows of seating. They are paying for more but they have to delay their journey. I pity them.
How to replace the bus tyre?
First, he had to lift the bus. I’m not sure how he put the jack underneath the bus. But unscrewing each nuts manually its quite challenging because its very tight! 30 minutes later, back-up team of mechanics arrived with their gears and they manage to replace TWO tires. I thought he just want to replace one tire. Big vehicle has bigger and more tires. How do they replace airplane tires eh?
If you don’t know how to replace, then?
Car only have four tires so its not that difficult to replace them. I would like to advice female drivers out there, its wise to register with any breakdown companies or insurance. For instance if you registered with AAM, they can help you replace your tire or even tow your car for free.
P/S – have a safe trip for Hari Raya!
