Changing wheels - fitting
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.
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.
- 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.
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.
