REMOVING THE SPARE WHEEL

WARNING

Remove the spare wheel before jacking the vehicle, to avoid destabilizing the vehicle when raised.

WARNING

Wheels are heavy and, if handled incorrectly, may cause injury. Use extreme caution when lifting, lowering, and maneuvering the wheels.

WARNING

Always secure the spare wheel, or the removed wheel, in the correct position, using the securing bolt. During an accident or sudden maneuver, loose objects can cause serious injury or death.

WARNING

Do not store the wheel while the vehicle is raised on the jack. Doing so may result in serious injury.

WARNING

After wheel changing, always secure the tools, jack, and the replaced wheel in the correct storage positions. Such objects, if not properly stored, can become propelled objects in a crash or rollover, potentially causing injury or death.

CAUTION

Always use the lift assist strap (if available) when removing the wheel. Avoid contact with the expansion chamber of the air supply unit, as it may result in damage to the compressor.

NOTES

Before removing the spare wheel, take note of its storage position. The wheel to be changed must be correctly stored and secured in its place.

NOTES

The spare wheel's lift assist tool is not fitted to all vehicles. For more information, contact a retailer/authorized repairer.
