INFORMACIÓN DE SEGURIDAD PARA SUSTITUCIÓN DE NEUMÁTICOS

Before raising the vehicle, or changing a wheel, make sure that you read and comply with the following warnings:

WARNING

Always find a safe place to stop, off the highway, and away from traffic.

WARNING

Switch on the hazard warning lamps.

WARNING

Apply the Parking brake and engage transmission P.

WARNING

Make sure that the vehicle and jack are both on firm, level ground.

WARNING

Make sure that the front wheels are in the straight ahead position and engage the steering lock.

WARNING

Disconnect any trailer/caravan from the vehicle.

WARNING

Make sure that all passengers, and animals, are out of the vehicle and in a safe place away from the highway.

WARNING

Place a warning triangle at a suitable distance behind the vehicle, facing towards oncoming traffic.

WARNING

Remove the spare wheel prior to jacking the vehicle, to avoid destabilising the vehicle when raised.

WARNING

When one rear wheel is lifted off the ground, transmission P position will not prevent the vehicle from moving and possibly slipping off the jack as the Parking brake only operates on the rear wheels.

WARNING

Always chock the wheel diagonally opposite the wheel to be changed, using the wheel chock supplied in the tool kit. Chock the front of a front wheel, or the rear of a rear wheel.

WARNING

If jacking the vehicle on a slight slope is unavoidable, place chocks on the downhill side of the two opposite wheels. An additional chock will be needed.

WARNING

Never place anything between the jack and the ground, or the jack and the vehicle.

WARNING

Do not attempt to raise the vehicle, unless the jack head is fully engaged in the jacking point. Only jack the vehicle using the approved jacking points.

WARNING

Always position the jack from the side of the vehicle, in line with the appropriate jacking point.

WARNING

WARNING - THAT NO PERSON SHOULD PLACE ANY PORTION OF THEIR BODY UNDER A VEHICLE THAT IS SUPPORTED BY A JACK.

WARNING

Take care when loosening the wheel nuts. The wheel brace may slip off if not properly attached and the wheel nuts may release suddenly. Either unexpected movement may cause an injury.

WARNING

Take care when lifting the spare wheel and removing the punctured wheel. The wheels are heavy and can cause injuries if not handled correctly.

WARNING

Always make sure that replacement tyres have the correct rating and specifications (e.g., load index, size, speed rating) for your vehicle.

WARNING

Do not start or run the engine while the vehicle is supported only by a jack.

WARNING

After use, the tool kit should be returned to the storage area and correctly stowed.
