Attaching the jack

Attaching the jack

6. Place the jack on the ground, under one of the attachment points (see the illustration) and crank while simultaneously guiding the jack's attachment bracket onto the attachment point (see illustration) The base of the jack must be flat on a level, firm, non-slippery surface. Before raising the vehicle, check that the jack is still correctly positioned in the attachment.
7. Raise the vehicle until the wheel to be changed is lifted off the ground.
8. Unscrew the wheel bolts completely and carefully remove the wheel so as not to damage the threads on the studs.

NOTE
To avoid excessive wear and the necessity of rebalancing, mark and reinstall wheels in the same location and position as before removal. To lessen the chance of imbalance, each wheel hub is equipped with a guide stud to ensure that a removed wheel can be reinstalled in its original position (as when changing over to winter tires/wheels).

CAUTION
Х The vehicle must not be driven with wheels of different dimensions or with a spare tire other than the one that came with the vehicle. The use of different size wheels can seriously damage your vehicle's transmission.
Х Correct tightening torque on wheel bolts must be observed.
Х The wheel bolts should never be greased or lubricated.
Х Extended, chromed wheel bolts must not be used with steel rims, as they make it impossible to fit the hub caps.
