REMOVING THE SPARE WHEEL

WARNING

Keep the back seats in an upright position when a spare or recovered wheel is on the load board. Failure to do so may cause serious injury in case of an accident.

WARNING

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

WARNING

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

WARNING

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

WARNING

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 flying missiles in a crash or rollover, potentially causing injury or death.

NOTES

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.

The spare wheel is stored in the spare wheel bag inside the luggage compartment.

To remove the spare wheel:

  1. Loosen the strap through the strap's locking buckle.

  2. Separate the three carabiners from the lashing eyes.

    NOTES

    Do not remove the three carabiners from the straps.

  3. Lift and take out the bag with the help of the lifting handle.

  4. Unzip and open the top lid of the bag.

  5. Open the velcro strap on the bag.

  6. Remove the spare wheel and the tool kit assembly from the bag.

    NOTES

    The tool kit is stored in the tool kit bag. The tool kit bag is attached to the spare wheel's spoke with velcro straps.

  7. To access the tool kit, release the velcro straps.

  8. Remove the jack and the wrench from the tool kit bag.

To accommodate the spare wheel/punctured road wheel:

  1. Place the jack and the wrench back into the tool kit bag.

  2. Attach the tool kit bag to two spokes on the spare wheel, using the velcro straps.

    NOTES

    The tool kit bag cannot be attached to the spokes once the dirt cover is in place.

  3. Place the spare wheel on the floor with wheel disc facing upward.

    NOTES

    When storing the recovered road wheel, use the bag provided to prevent damage/soiling the interior of the vehicle.

  4. Remove the dirt cover from the compartment at the edge of the inner side of the spare wheel bag and place the spare wheel inside.

  5. Unzip the spare wheel bag with the bottom zip for increased space. Place it over the spare/recovered wheel, with the open lid facing the spare/recovered wheel.

    NOTES

    Keep the velcro strap of the spare wheel bag open while placing the bag on the spare wheel. Failure to do so may not allow the bag to cover the spare wheel.

  6. Close the velcro strap, then invert the bag and spare wheel so that the unzipped opening is facing upward.

    WARNING

    Hold the spare wheel firmly while tilting the spare wheel bag. Failure to do so may allow the spare wheel to slip from the spare wheel bag and cause personal injury.

  7. Close the top lid and the upper zipper of the spare wheel bag.

  8. Lift the spare wheel bag with the lifting handle and place it in the luggage compartment.

    NOTES

    Make sure that the lifting handle and the Jaguar logo are facing the open tailgate.

  9. Engage the three carabiners to the lashing eyes.

  10. Tighten the strap over the spare wheel bag and secure it with the locking buckle.
