Handling the spare wheel*

Follow these instructions for handling the spare wheel.

Taking out the spare wheel

P5-1917-Spare tire screw

The illustration is generic and appearance may differ.

The spare wheel is located under the cargo area floor in the spare wheel well with the outside down. The spare wheel is secured with the same bolt that attaches in the body. The foam block contains all the tools for changing a wheel.

Fold up the cargo area floor.

Undo the retaining screw.

Lift out the spare wheel.

Storing the punctured tyre

Screw back the mounting screw that held the spare wheel in place.

Important

Do not attempt to unscrew the lower part of the mounting screw if it is secured in the body. There is a risk it may break.

If the lower attachment of the mounting screw does loosen from the body underneath the spare wheel, refit it in the hole and turn clockwise to reattach it.

Put the tools back in their right place in the foam block.

Then fold down the cargo area floor and place the punctured tyre in the cargo area.
