Oh bugger! Things always seem to go wrong at the most inconvenient times.
We were deflating the tyres to head into the sand dunes and just as I got to the second tyre bang I snapped off the valve stem. With air screaming out of the tyre we were quick into action putting the car onto level ground and getting a jack under the front diff.
Swapping the wheel for a spare we were off playing in the dunes in no time.
Times like this it’s nice having a partner who can back you up and help get the job done quickly but more importantly safely.
