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.

Lower the car so that the wheels cannot rotate.

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.

The white arrow must point toward the front of the car.
Screw apart the towing eye and the wheel bolt wrench. Place the wheel bolt wrench and the jack in their respective compartments in the bag. Tighten the bag's centre strap firmly and use the other strap to secure the bag in the rear load retaining eyelet on the left-hand side of the cargo area. Position the bag so it is not pinched when the tailgate is closed. The white arrow on the bag must point toward the front of the car.


  • 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 bag should be secured so that the white arrow (see the inset figure) points forward in the car.

When changing to another tyre dimension

Applies to cars with tyre pressure monitoring1: 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.
