Handling the spare wheel*

Follow these instructions for handling the spare wheel.

Taking out the spare wheel

P5-1917-Spare tire screw
The illustration is generic and appearance may differ.

The spare wheel is located under the cargo area floor in the spare wheel well. The spare wheel is secured with the same bolt that attaches in the body. The foam block contains all the tools for changing a wheel.

Fold up the cargo area floor.
Undo the retaining screw.
Lift out the spare wheel.

Storing the punctured tyre

Screw back the mounting screw that held the spare wheel in place.


Do not attempt to unscrew the lower part of the mounting screw if it is secured in the body. There is a risk it may break.

If the lower attachment of the mounting screw does loosen from the body underneath the spare wheel, refit it in the hole and turn clockwise to reattach it.


For cars with 48V battery, the screw is attached in the battery box instead of the body. If the lower part of the mounting screw remains fitted when the spare wheel has been removed, it should be removed to avoid risk of crushing when the damaged tyre is put back in place.
Put the tools back in their right place in the foam block.
Then fold down the cargo area floor and place the punctured tyre in the cargo area.
