Make sure to read and fully understand the following warnings. Failure to comply with the safety instructions may result in an accident, leading to serious injury or death.


Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before removing the spare wheel. See WHEEL CHANGING SAFETY.


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


Wheels are heavy and, if handled incorrectly, may cause injury. Use extreme caution when lifting, lowering, and maneuvering the wheels.


Do not store the wheel while the vehicle is raised on the jack.

Always secure the spare wheel, or the removed wheel, in the correct position, using the securing bolt.


After wheel changing, always secure the tools, jack, and the replaced wheel in the correct storage positions. Such objects, if not properly stored, can become propelled objects in a crash or rollover, potentially causing injury or death.

The spare wheel is located under the luggage compartment's floor panel.


Before removing the spare wheel, take note of its storage position. The wheel to be changed must be correctly stored and secured in its place.

Always remove the spare wheel before jacking the vehicle:

  1. Continually rotate the spare wheel center clamp plate counter-clockwise to release.

  2. Continually rotate the top plate of the center bolt counter-clockwise to completely remove.

Reverse the whole procedure to refit.
