CAMBIO DE UNA RUEDA

WARNING

Before raising the vehicle, refer to all warnings at the beginning of this section of the Owner's Handbook.

WARNING

Before changing a wheel, read and observe the warnings. See INFORMACIÓN DE SEGURIDAD PARA SUSTITUCIÓN DE NEUMÁTICOS.

NOTES

Before raising the vehicle, correctly position the wheel chocks. See USO DE LOS CALZOS.

For vehicles that are not supplied with a spare wheel, refer to the tyre repair system section. See KIT DE REPARACIÓN DE NEUMÁTICOS.

  1. Luggage compartment floor panel: Lift the rear edge and secure it to the vehicle's body.

  2. Temporary-use spare wheel securing bolt and clamp.

  3. Locking wheel nut adaptor.

  4. Wheel brace.

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

  6. Towing eye.

  7. Reset tool. See MECANISMO PASIVO CONTRA REPOSTAJE INCORRECTO DIÉSEL.

  8. There are four jacking points on the underside of the vehicle. Two indented, triangular indicators are provided on each sill cover and 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.

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.

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 boot. See APERTURA Y CIERRE DEL MALETERO.

  2. Lift the rear edge of the luggage compartment floor panel and secure it to the vehicle's body.

  3. Continually rotate the spare wheel's securing centre clamp plate counter-clockwise to release. Continually rotate the top plate of the centre bolt counter-clockwise to completely remove the securing plate or bolt assembly. See DESMONTAJE DE LA RUEDA DE REPUESTO.

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

  5. To loosen the wheel nuts, use the wheel brace and turn half a turn counter-clockwise.

    WARNING

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

  6. Position the jack under the relevant jacking point, under the floor.

    NOTES

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

  7. 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.

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

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

  10. Remove the loosened wheel nuts. Place the wheel nuts together, where they cannot roll away.

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

  12. Fit the spare wheel to the vehicle, by aligning the spare wheel with the vehicle's wheel studs. Slide onto the hub.

  13. Refit the wheel nuts. 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.

  14. Make sure that the area under the vehicle is clear of obstructions. Lower the vehicle slowly and smoothly.

  15. With all wheels on the ground and the jack removed, fully tighten the wheel nuts. Tighten the wheel nuts in the sequence shown in the illustration, to the correct torque of 125 Nm.

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, use a suitable blunt tool to knock the centre cap out of the removed wheel. Use hand pressure only to 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.
