Changing wheels - fitting

It is important that the procedure for fitting the wheel is carried out correctly.



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.

Clean the contact surfaces between wheel and hub.

Put on the wheel. Tighten the wheel bolts thoroughly.

Do not use lubricant on the threads of the wheel bolts.

Lower the car so that the wheels cannot rotate.

P3X-1020-Tighten the lug nuts
Tighten the wheel bolts crosswise. It is important that the wheel bolts are tightened properly. Tighten to 140 Nm. Check the torque with a torque wrench.
Refit the plastic caps on the wheel bolts.
Refit any full wheel covers.


  • After a tyre has been inflated, always refit the dust cap in order to avoid damage to the valve from gravel, dirt, etc.
  • Only use plastic dust caps. Metal dust caps can rust and become difficult to unscrew.


The wheel cover outlet for the valve must be positioned over the valve on the wheel rim during fitting.

When changing to another tyre dimension

Contact an authorised Volvo workshop for updating the software at each change of tyre dimension. A software download may be necessary both when changing to larger and smaller dimensions, and also when switching between summer and winter wheels.
