Changing Tires

tires Unusual "spongy" vehicle handling? Most of the time a drastic loss of air in one tire is the reason for this. But also in case of a bursted tire: try to reach (with switched on warning lights and at walking speed) a somewhat safe parking spot. After all, changing tires on the side of the road which is facing traffic is not very safe!

Changing tires step by step :
arrow Secure vehicle.
arrow Apply parking brake and put on the first gear respectively put automatic lever on position "P".
arrow Take a quick look in the manual to see where the lifting jack is placed, how it works and on which points below the car it is to be placed. There are other special hints in the manual, e.g. if the car is equipped with a emergency wheel.
arrow Place tool kit and spare wheel ready.
arrow Take off hub cap if existent with the pointed end of the wheel wrench.
arrow At first release wheel nut only about 1/2 turn.
arrow Place lifting jack (pay attention to the warning sticker).
arrow Lift vehicle until mounting height for the spare wheel is reached.
arrow Screw off wheel nuts completely.
arrow Demount defective wheel and place under the vehicle.
arrow Mount spare wheel.
arrow Screw on tightly all wheel nuts.
arrow Take defective wheel which is under the car.
arrow Release the car.
arrow Tighten wheel nut over cross.
arrow Stow away lifting jack, tools and spare wheel.
arrow Stow away warning triangle.
arrow Place hub cap momentarily in the trunk.
arrow At the next gas station check air pressure and tighten again the wheel nuts and put on hub cap.
arrow On the next occasion check wheel nuts in the garage for correct starting torque.
arrow If changing metal rims to alloy rims and vice versa normally you have to use different wheel bolts and wheel nuts! Best keep them together with the on-board tools or in the glove compartment! The same counts for the rim wrenches for theft protection.
