75acfaa4 If the tyre is lowered

Gradually reduce speed, keeping a direct direction. Cautiously move down after the journey in a safe place far away from movement. Avoid a stop in the centre of a dividing strip of a motorway. Stop on an equal platform with a reliable ground.

Stop the engine and include emergency blinking signals.

Reliably involve a lay brake and establish a transmission in position "P" (an automatic transmission) or on a reverse gear (a transmission with manual switching).

All should leave the car in the opposite party from movement.

Attentively read following instructions:

In a jack usage time necessarily be careful for reduction of risk of reception of a trauma. Follow instructions for work with a jack.

Do not start and do not scroll the engine when the car is supported only by a jack.

Stop the car on a firm equal surface, reliably involve a lay brake and establish a transmission in position "P" (an automatic transmission) or on a reverse gear (a transmission with manual switching). If it is required, enclose колодку under a wheel located on a diagonal, opposite from a replaced wheel.

Necessarily establish a jack properly on a point for a jack. The car raising incorrectly located jack will damage the car or presumes to come off to the car a jack and to become the trauma reason.

Never подлезайте under the car when it is supported only by one jack.

Use a jack only for concept of the car during wheel replacement.

Do not lift the car when somebody is in car salon.

At a raising of the car do not enclose any subjects on or under a jack.

Lift the car only on height, sufficient for removal and tyre replacement.

1. A wrench for nuts of wheels

2. A bag with tools

3. A jack

4. The jack handle

5. The spare tyre

Take demanded tools and the spare tyre.

For independent preparation for a critical situation it is necessary to familiarise with use of the jack, each tool and a place of their storage

Turn connection of a jack by a hand.

For removal – turn connection in a direction 1 until the jack will not be free.

For storage – turn connection in a direction 2 until the jack will not be reliably fixed for prevention of its moving forward during collision or sharp braking.

Removal of the spare tyre

Loosen the a nut 1 also remove it.

Uncover 2 spare tyres.

Loosen the a bolt 3 also remove it.

Remove a washer 4.

Then get the spare tyre from the car.

At storage of the spare tyre establish it into place a wheel outer side outside. Then fix the tyre, repeating the above described points for removal upside-down for prevention of its advance during collision or sharp braking.

Wheel blocking

Enclose колодку under the wheel located on a diagonal opposite to the lowered tyre, for deduction of the car from качения at a raising its jack.

At blocking of wheels put колодку in front for forward wheels or behind for back wheels.

Removal of a decorative cover of a wheel

Steel wheels

Remove a decorative cover of a wheel.

Aluminium wheels
Remove a decorative cover of a wheel by means of the pointed end of a wrench for nuts of wheels.

The prevention

Do not try to remove a decorative cover a hand.

Easing of nuts of wheels

Loosen the all nuts of a wheel.

Always weaken nuts of wheels before a car raising.

Nuts turn counter-clockwise for their easing. For reception of the maximum lever effort establish a wrench on a nut so that the handle was on the right side, as shown. Grasp the handle near the end pull for the handle upwards. Be cautious, that the wrench has not come off a nut.

Do not remove for the present a nut – only unscrew them approximately on one and a half turn.

Jack arrangement

Have a jack in a correct point for a jack.

Be convinced that the jack is located on an equal and firm platform.

Car raising

Lift the car on height, sufficient for installation of the spare tyre. Remember that it is required больший a gleam with the earth at installation of the spare tyre, than at removal of the lowered tyre.

For a car raising insert the jack handle into a jack (free landing) and turn it clockwise. As soon as the jack will touch the car and will start to lift it, check up twice that it is located correctly.

Replacement of wheels

Remove nuts of a wheel and replace tyres.

Remove the lowered tyre directly forward and put it aside.

Drive a spare wheel in the necessary position and combine apertures in a wheel c bolts. Then lift a wheel and achieve, that the top bolt has passed in an aperture. Shake a wheel and put on it other bolts.

Before wheel installation remove all corrosion from an assembly surface of a wheel by means of a wire brush or something similar. Installation of a wheel without good contact metal to metal on an assembly surface can lead to easing of nuts of a wheel and even to cause a detachment of a wheel during movement. Therefore after the first 1600 km check up, whether wheel nuts are enough hardly tightened.

Return installation of nuts of a wheel

Establish back all nuts of a wheel and tighten their fingers.

Establish back wheel nuts (the narrowed end inside) and tighten them as it is possible more strongly a hand. Press the tyre and check up, whether it is possible to tighten them more strongly.

Car lowering

Completely lower the car and tighten wheel nuts.

Turn the jack handle counter-clockwise for car lowering.

Use only a wheel wrench for an inhaling of nuts. Do not use other tools or any additional levers, except hands, as, for example, a hammer, a pipe. Be convinced that the wrench reliably grasps a nut.

Tighten each nut gradually for one time in the sequence specified in drawing. Repeat process until all nuts will not be completely tightened.

Return installation of a decorative cover of a wheel

Establish back decorative cover of a wheel:

Steel wheels

Establish a decorative cover of a wheel in correct position.

Aluminium wheels

On some models – combine a cut on a decorative cover of a wheel with a gate core.

Then reliably knock its edge of a hand for защелкивания it on a place.

After replacement of wheels

Check up pressure of air in the replaced tyre.

Adjust pressure of air to the demanded. If it is more low slowly reach to the nearest servicing deport and pump up the tyre to the necessary pressure.

Do not forget to establish back a cap of the inflatable gate of the tyre as the dirt and a moisture can get to a gate core that will lead to air leak. If the cap was lost, establish new as soon as possible.

Reliably combine all tools, a jack and the lowered tyre.

As soon as possible after replacement of wheels tighten nuts of a wheel to a twisting moment with the help динамометрического a key and execute technical repair of the lowered tyre.
The prevention

Before driving be convinced that all tools, a jack and the lowered tyre are reliably fixed in places of their storage to avoid a trauma during collision or sharp braking.
