Yeah i had the fortunate experience to find a nail in my rear tyre one day after i got the car. So i was able to play around with the jack and wrench system at home.
By the way was this punchure on your new 17inch wheels, if so ahve you got SP9000's??? Seems they are notorious for punchures.
On that note i have to say, the way the AU's have there jack and wrench is compact but i often wonder how strong that folding wrench is. The way to wind the jack is wierd as well.
Other problem i found with the AUII jack is that it takes ages and a million turns just to get the wheel of ground.
On the EF it's sooo much quicker.
