3beb1f2e If the tire is lowered


Gradually reduce speed, keeping the direct direction. Carefully move down after the journey to the safe place far away from the movement. Avoid a stop in the center of a dividing strip of the highway. Stop on the flat platform with reliable soil.

Stop the engine and include the emergency blinking signals.

Reliably involve the parking brake and install the transmission in situation "P" (the automatic transmission) or on the reverse gear (the transmission with manual switching).

All have to go out of the car in the party, opposite to the movement.

Attentively read the following instructions:

In usage time of a jack surely be careful for reduction of risk of getting injured. Follow instructions for work with a jack.

Do not start and do not scroll the engine when the car is supported only by a jack.

Stop the car on a firm plain surface, reliably involve the parking brake and install the transmission in situation "P" (the automatic transmission) or on the reverse gear (the transmission with manual switching). If it is required, enclose a block under the wheel located on diagonal, opposite from the replaced wheel.

Surely establish a jack properly on a point for a jack. The car raising incorrectly located jack will damage the car or is able to allow the car to come off a jack and to become the trauma reason.

Never to a podlezayta under the car when he is supported only by one jack.

Use a jack only for a concept of the car during replacement of a wheel.

Do not lift the car when somebody is in interior of the car.

At a raising of the car do not enclose any objects on or under a jack.

Lift the car only on height sufficient for removal and replacement of the tire.

1. A wrench for nuts of wheels

2. A bag with tools

3. Jack

4. Jack handle

5. Spare tire

Take the required tools and the spare tire.

For independent preparation for a critical situation it is necessary to examine use of a jack, each tool and the place of their storage

Turn connection of a jack a hand.

For removal – turn connection in the direction 1 until the jack is not free.

For storage – turn connection in the direction 2 until the jack is not reliably fixed for prevention of its movement during collision or sharp braking forward.

Removal of the spare tire

Weaken a nut 1 and remove it.

Uncover 2 spare tires.

Weaken a bolt 3 and remove it.

Remove a washer 4.

Then get the spare tire from the car.

At storage of the spare tire install it into place by outer side of a wheel outside. Then fix the tire, repeating the above described points for removal upside-down for prevention of its advance during collision or sharp braking.

Blocking of a wheel

Enclose a block under the wheel located on diagonal opposite to a flat tire for deduction of the car from swing at a raising its jack.

When blocking wheels put a block in front for forward wheels or behind for back wheels.

Removal of a decorative cover of a wheel

Steel wheels

Remove a decorative cover of a wheel.

Aluminum wheels
Remove a decorative cover of a wheel by means of the pointed end of a wrench for nuts of wheels.


Do not try to remove a decorative cover a hand.

Weakening of nuts of wheels

Weaken all nuts of a wheel.

Always weaken nuts of wheels before a car raising.

Nuts turn counterclockwise for their easing. For obtaining the maximum lever effort establish a wrench on a nut so that the handle was on the right side, as shown. Capture the handle near the end and pull for the handle up. Be careful that the wrench did not come off a nut.

Do not remove for the present a nut – only unscrew them approximately on one and a half turns.

Jack arrangement

Have a jack in the correct point for a jack.

Make sure that the jack is located on the flat and firm platform.

Car raising

Lift the car on height sufficient for installation of the spare tire. Remember that the bigger gleam with the earth at installation of the spare tire will be required, than at removal of a flat tire.

For a raising of the car insert the jack handle into a jack (free landing) and turn it clockwise. As soon as the jack touches the car and will begin to lift it, check twice that it is located correctly.

Replacement of wheels

Remove nuts of a wheel and replace tires.

Remove a flat tire directly forward and put it aside.

Drive a spare wheel in the necessary situation and combine openings in a wheel with bolts. Then lift a wheel and achieve that the top bolt passed in an opening. Shake a wheel and put on it other bolts.

Before installation of a wheel remove all corrosion from an assembly surface of a wheel by means of a wire brush or something similar. Installation of a wheel without good contact can lead metal to metal on an assembly surface to weakening of nuts of a wheel and even to cause a wheel detachment during the movement. Therefore after the first 1600 km check whether wheel nuts are rather hardly tightened.

Return installation of nuts of a wheel

Establish back all nuts of a wheel and tighten them fingers.

Establish back wheel nuts (the narrowed end inside) and tighten them as it is possible stronger a hand. Press the tire and check whether it is possible to tighten them stronger.

Lowering of the car

Completely lower the car and tighten wheel nuts.

Turn the jack handle counterclockwise for lowering of the car.

Use only a wheel wrench for an inhaling of nuts. Do not use other tools or any additional levers, except hands as, for example, the hammer, a pipe. Make sure that the wrench reliably takes a nut.

Tighten each nut gradually for one time in the sequence specified in the drawing. Repeat process until all nuts are not completely tightened.

Return installation of a decorative cover of a wheel

Establish back decorative cover of a wheel:

Steel wheels

Establish a decorative cover of a wheel in the correct situation.

Aluminum wheels

On some models – combine a cut on a decorative cover of a wheel with a gate core.

Then reliably knock her edge hands for a zashchelkivaniye it on the place.

After replacement of wheels

Check air pressure in the replaced tire.

Adjust air pressure till demanded. If it is lower, then slowly reach to the nearest service station and pump up the tire up to the necessary pressure.

Do not forget to establish back a cap of the inflatable gate of the tire as dirt and moisture can get to a gate core that will lead to air leak. If the cap was lost, establish new as soon as possible.

Reliably put all tools, a jack and a flat tire.

As soon as possible after replacement of wheels tighten wheel nuts to torque by means of a dynamometer key and execute technical repair of a flat tire.

Before driving be convinced that all tools, the jack and a flat tire are reliably fixed in places of their storage to avoid a trauma during collision or sharp braking.
