Changing wheels

Spare wheel*

Updated 7/23/2018

The spare wheel, the Temporary spare type, can be used to temporarily replace a punctured normal wheel.

The spare wheel is located in the spare wheel well with the outside down. The same bolt runs through to secure the spare wheel and the foam block. The foam block contains all the tools needed to change the wheels.

The car's handling may be altered by the use of the spare wheel. The spare wheel must be replaced by a normal wheel as soon as possible.

The spare wheel is smaller than the regular wheel, which will affect the car's ground clearance. Pay attention to high kerbs and do not machine wash the car.

  • Follow the manufacturer's recommended tyre pressure for the spare wheel.
  • On all-wheel drive cars the drive on the rear axle can be disconnected.
  • If the spare wheel is fitted on the front axle, it is not possible to use snow chains at the same time.
  • The spare wheel must not be repaired.

Important

  • Never drive faster than 80 km/h (50 mph) with a spare wheel on the car.
  • The car must never be driven fitted with more than one "Temporary Spare" wheel.

Taking out the spare wheel
