Changing wheels

Jack*

Updated 7/23/2018

A jack is used to raise the car, e.g. when changing the tyres.

The original jack should only be used for changing to the spare wheel. The jack's thread must always be well greased.

Note

The normal car jack is only designed for occasional, short-term use, such as when changing a wheel after a puncture, changing to winter/summer wheels, etc. Only the jack for the specific car model may be used to raise the car. If the car is to be jacked up more often, or for a longer time than is required just to change a wheel, use of a garage jack is recommended. In this instance, follow the instructions for use that come with the equipment.

Tools - returning into place

The tools and jack* must be returned to their correct places after use. The jack needs to be cranked together to the correct position in order to have space.

The foam block and spare wheel are replaced in the reverse order to taking out. Note that there is an arrow on the upper foam block. It must point forwards in the car.

Important

The tools and jack* must be stored in the intended location in the car's cargo area when not in use.

Note

If the floor hatch in the cargo area floor is not closed then privacy locking does not work.
