CAMBIO DE UNA RUEDA

For vehicles that were not supplied with a spare wheel, see KIT DE REPARACIÓN DE NEUMÁTICOS.

  1. Luggage compartment floor panel: Lift the rear edge and then pull to remove.

  2. Temporary-use spare wheel retaining bolt/clamp.

  3. Locking wheel nut adaptor.

  4. Wheel brace.

  5. Wheel chocks.

  6. Jack assembly. Observe the instructions printed on the jack.

  7. Towing eye.

  8. Reset tool. See DISPOSITIVO DE PREVENCIÓN DE FALLO DE ABASTECIMIENTO DIÉSEL.

  9. There are 4 jacking points on the underside of the vehicle. 2 indented, triangular indicators are provided on each sill cover. These indicate the location for the jack.

WARNING

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

See IMPORTANTE: USO DE LA RUEDA DE REPUESTO and DESMONTAJE DE LA RUEDA DE REPUESTO.

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

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

The jack is designed for wheel changing only. Never work beneath the vehicle with the jack as the only means of support. Always use correctly rated vehicle support stands, before putting any part of your body beneath the vehicle.

CAUTION

Only jack the vehicle using the jacking points described, or damage to the vehicle could occur.

Before raising the vehicle, use the wheel nut brace to slacken the wheel nuts of the wheel to be replaced, by half a turn counter-clockwise. Use the wheel chock. See USO DE LOS CALZOS.

CAUTION

Vehicles with locking wheel nuts: Make sure that the locking wheel nut adaptor is correctly aligned and fully fitted to the locking wheel nut before usage. Failure to do so may result in damage to the locking wheel nut adaptor or the vehicle.

See TUERCAS DE BLOQUEO DE LAS RUEDAS.

  1. Open the Luggage compartment. See APERTURA Y CIERRE DEL MALETERO.

  2. Lift the rear edge and then pull to remove the Luggage compartment floor panel.

  3. Continually rotate the spare wheel's retaining centre clamp plate counter-clockwise, to release and then continually rotate the top plate of the centre bolt counter-clockwise, to completely remove the retaining plate/bolt assembly. See DESMONTAJE DE LA RUEDA DE REPUESTO.

  4. Remove the spare wheel and the vehicle's tool kit.

  5. Fit the wheel chocks to the relevant wheel. See USO DE LOS CALZOS.

    WARNING

    Make sure that the wheel chock is fully engaged with the tyre and the road surface.

  6. Use the wheel brace to loosen the wheel nuts, by turning half a turn counter-clockwise.

    WARNING

    Do not remove the wheel nuts until the vehicle has been safely and securely raised with the jack.

  7. Position the jack under the relevant jacking point.

    NOTES

    Do not allow the jack to contact the sill at any other point, as damage may result.

  8. Turn the jack lever clockwise to raise, until the jack head locates into the jacking point. Make sure that the base of the jack is in full contact with the road surface.

  9. Raise the vehicle using the jack, with a slow steady operation. Avoid rapid, jerky actions as they may cause the vehicle/jack to become unstable.

  10. Stop when the tyre is just clear of the ground.

  11. Remove the loosened wheel nuts and place them together where they cannot roll away.

  12. Remove the wheel and place to one side. Do not lay the wheel on its face, as this may damage the finish.

  13. Fit the spare wheel to the vehicle, by aligning the spare wheel with the vehicle's wheel studs and then slide onto the hub.

  14. Refit the wheel nuts and then lightly tighten them in the sequence shown in the illustration. Make sure that the wheel is correctly and evenly fitted to the hub, by checking that each wheel nut is in a similar position.

  15. Make sure that the space under the vehicle is clear of obstructions, then lower the vehicle slowly and smoothly.

  16. With all wheels on the ground and the jack removed, fully tighten the wheel nuts, in the sequence shown in the illustration, to the correct torque of 125 Nm (92 lb.ft).

NOTES

If it is not possible to torque the wheel nuts when a wheel is replaced, they should be set to the correct torque as soon as possible.

If an alloy spare wheel is to be fitted, using a suitable blunt tool, knock the centre cap out of the removed wheel. Using hand pressure only, press the centre cap into the newly fitted spare.

Check and adjust the tyre pressure as soon as possible. See PRESIÓN DE INFLADO DE LOS NEUMÁTICOS.

NOTES

Examine the jack occasionally, clean and grease the moving parts, particularly the screw thread, to prevent corrosion.
