CHANGING A WHEEL
Switch on the hazard warning lights.
Keep the vehicle away from traffic and on a level surface where it will not slip.
Apply the handbrake and engage position P.
Ask all the passengers to leave the vehicle and keep them away from traffic.
If necessary, remove the wheel trim.
Use the wheelbrace 2 to slacken off the wheel bolts. Position it so as to be able to push from above.
Start extending jack 4 by hand, turning the handle.
You must put the jack head on the jacking point 1 nearest the affected wheel and, depending on the vehicle, the place marked with a triangle.
Continue tightening to position the baseplate on the ground correctly. Turn handle 3 on the jack to lift the wheel off the ground.
Undo the bolts and take off the wheel. For vehicles fitted with alloy wheels, use the guide bolt located in the tool kit to finish loosening and start tightening the bolts.
Fit the emergency spare wheel on the central hub and turn it to align the mounting holes in the wheel and the hub.
Tighten the bolts and lower the jack.
If bolts are supplied with the emergency spare wheel, only use these bolts for the emergency spare wheel.
Tighten the bolts, checking that the wheel is correctly positioned on its hub and unscrew the jack.
With the wheels on the ground, tighten the bolts fully and check they are tight as quickly as possible.
If the vehicle is parked on the hard shoulder, you must warn other road users of your vehicle’s presence with a warning triangle or with other devices as per the legislation applying to the country you are in.
If you use anti-theft bolts, fit these nearest the valve (wheel trim may not be able to fit).
If you have a puncture, replace the wheel as soon as possible.
A tyre which has been punctured should always be inspected (and repaired, where possible) by a specialist.
