    Post word order

    Sir/Madam,
    I am not sure how to put the words in the sentence here. Please help.


    I have to take my car to the garage because the back left wheel from the driver side is leaking air.

    Or

    The back left wheel behind the driver's sit of my car is leaking air.

    The rear wheel/tyre/tire on the driver's side has a puncture so I need to take the car to the garage.

    Re: word order

    If It was the situation on the other wheel, would I be able to say the same thing as the last sentence?

    The rear wheel on the opposite of driver's side has a puncture.

    Then we would say "The rear wheel on the passenger side..."
