WHEEL CHANGING

WARNING

Before raising the vehicle, refer to all warnings at the beginning of this section of the Owner’s Handbook.

WARNING

Before changing a wheel, read and observe the warnings. See WHEEL CHANGING SAFETY.

WARNING

Do not attempt to raise the vehicle, unless the jack head is fully engaged in the jacking point. Only jack the vehicle using the approved jacking points.

The jack is designed for wheel changing only. Never work beneath the vehicle with the jack as the only means of support. Always use correctly rated vehicle support stands, before putting any part of the body beneath the vehicle.

CAUTION

Only jack the vehicle using the jacking points described, as damage to the vehicle could occur.

To change a wheel:

  1. Before raising the vehicle, use the wheel nut brace to slacken the wheel nuts of the wheel to be replaced. Turn half a turn counter-clockwise.

  2. Locate the jack under the relevant jacking point.

    NOTES

    Do not allow the jack to contact the sill at any other point, as damage may result.

    NOTES

    The sports pack sills include arrows to identify jacking points.

  3. Unfold the cranking handle from its stored position on the jack. Fit the wheel nut brace to the end of the cranking handle.

  4. Rotate the handle clockwise to raise the jack, until the jack pin locates into the jacking point.

  5. Raise the vehicle until the wheel is clear of the ground.

  6. Remove the wheel nuts and place them together where they cannot roll away.

  7. Remove the wheel and place it to one side. Do not lay the wheel on its face, as this may damage the finish.

  8. Fit the temporary-use spare wheel to the hub.

  9. Refit the wheel nuts and lightly tighten them. Make sure the wheel is making contact with the hub evenly.

  10. Make sure the area under the vehicle is clear of obstructions. Lower the vehicle slowly and smoothly.

  11. With all of the wheels on the ground and the jack removed, fully tighten the wheel nuts. The wheel nuts must be tightened in sequence, see the illustration below, to the correct torque of 98 lb.ft (133 Nm).

NOTES

If it is not possible to torque the wheel nuts when a wheel is replaced, they should be set to the correct torque as soon as possible.

Check and adjust the tire pressure as soon as possible.
