Removing a wheel
Apply the parking brake and engage gear position P.
Applies to cars with Leveling Control*: If the car is equipped with air suspension, this must be disabled before the car is raised with a jack.
Deactivate the function via the top view of the centre display by pressing and selecting Deactivate Suspension & Leveling Control.
Screw together the towing eye with the wheel wrench* to the stop position.
When raising the car it is important that the jack or lifting arms are fitted in the intended points on the car's underbody. The triangle markings in the plastic cover indicate the locations of the jacking/lifting points. There are two jacking points on each side of the car. There is a recess for the jack at each point.
Crank up the jack so that it makes contact with the car's jacking point. Check that the head of the jack is correctly positioned in the jacking point so that the bump in the centre of the head fits into the jacking point hole and the base is positioned vertically below the jacking point. Also make sure you turn the jack so that the crank is as far away from the side of the car as possible, at which point the jack's arms are perpendicular to the direction of the car.
Never crawl under the car when it is raised on the jack.
Passengers must leave the car when it is raised on the jack. If a wheel must be changed in a trafficked environment, passengers must stand in a safe place.
