I will try to deal with one sentence here. If my response is helpful, feel free to ask one new question. If it is not helpful, feel free to ask one follow-up question.
Let us imagine ourselves at time A (for me, as I write this post, that is 22.35, Central European Time, on 8 May) For some reason (don't ask why!) we are looking back at time B - let's say exactly one week ago. At that time, 22.35 on 1 May, the tyre was flat. The words I uttered at that time were: "The tyre has punctured and it will have to be replaced".
the tyre had punctured and it would have to be replaced
One week later, looking back at that situation, I report it as: The tyre had punctured and it would have to be replaced.
The words in green, on their own, do not tell us whether or not the tyre has been replaced since we noticed that it had punctured.
Over to you.
Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
