When changing wheels
The car's wheels can be changed, e.g. to winter wheels or a spare wheel. Follow the relevant instructions for removing and fitting wheels.
Fitting the wheels
Instructions for fitting a wheel when changing wheels.
Removing a wheel
Wheel changes must always be performed correctly. Instructions on how a wheel is undone and what is important to remember are provided below.
The jack can be used to raise the car, for example, to change to the spare wheel.
Wheel bolts are used to attach the wheels to the hubs.
The spare wheel, the Temporary Spare type, can be used to temporarily replace a punctured normal wheel.
Handling the spare wheel
Follow these instructions for handling the spare wheel.
Use of snow chains and/or winter tyres can help to improve the traction in winter conditions.
Winter tyres are adapted for winter road conditions.
Activate the hazard warning flashers if the car has a puncture in a trafficked environment.
Tools that can be useful during towing, wheel changes or similar are found in the car's cargo area.
