Lowering the vehicle


Pump up the collapsible spare wheel before lowering the vehicle. You could otherwise damage the wheel rim.

  • Place the ratchet wrench onto the hexagon nut of the jack so that the letters AB are visible.
  • Turn the ratchet wrench until the vehicle is once again standing firmly on the ground.
  • Place the jack to one side.

  • Tighten the wheel bolts evenly in a crosswise pattern in the sequence indicated (: to A). The tightening torque must be 110 lb-ft (150 Nm).


Have the tightening torque checked immediately after a wheel is changed. The wheels could come loose if they are not tightened to a torque of 110 lb/ft (150 Nm).

  • Turn the jack back to its initial position and store it together with the rest of the tirechange tool kit in the cargo compartment.
  • Transport the defective wheel in the cargo compartment.
