Changing wheels - removing wheels
Set up the warning triangle if a wheel must be changed in a trafficked location. The car and jack* must be on a firm horizontal surface.
Volvo recommends only using the jack* that belongs to the car model in question, which is indicated on the jack's label.
The decal also indicates the jack's maximum lift capacity at a specified 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.
The towing eye must be screwed into all threads in the wheel wrench*.
Remove the plastic caps from the wheel nuts with the intended tool.
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.
