Changing wheels - removing wheels
Two different versions of the spare wheel can be supplied, in a bag or beneath the cargo floor.
The following instructions only apply if a spare wheel has been purchased as an accessory for the car. If the car is not equipped with a spare wheel - see information about Emergency puncture repair (TMK).
The spare wheel (Temporary spare) is only intended for use temporarily and must be replaced by an ordinary wheel as soon as possible. The car's handling may be altered by the use of the spare wheel. The spare wheel is smaller than the normal wheel. The car's ground clearance is affected accordingly. Pay attention to high kerbs and do not machine wash the car. If the spare wheel is fitted on the front axle, you cannot use snow chains at the same time. On all-wheel drive cars the drive on the rear axle can be disconnected. The spare wheel must not be repaired.
The correct tyre pressure for the spare wheel is stated in the tyre pressure table.
- 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.
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 spare wheel is supplied in a bag and must be secured on the cargo area floor using straps.
Turn the handle on the spare wheel bag in towards the rear seat. Attach the sewn-in tensioning strap hooks in the load retaining eyelets. Attach the long strap into one of the load retaining eyelets, run the strap around the spare wheel and through the lower handle. Tighten the short tensioning strap onto the long one. Attach the second load retaining eyelet and tighten.
Taking out the spare wheel under the cargo area floor
Taking out the spare wheel in the bag
Volvo recommends only using the jack* that belongs to the car model in question, which is indicated on the jack's label.
The label also indicates the jack's maximum lift capacity at a specified minimum lifting height.
Cars with steel rims have removable wheel covers. Use the removal tool to hook in and pull off any full-wheel wheel covers. Alternatively, the wheel covers can be pulled away by hand.
Screw together the towing eye with the wheel wrench* to the stop position.
There are two jacking points on each side of the car. Wind up the jack* so that the flange in the bodywork ends up in the notch in the head of the jack.
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.
