Roadside wheel change

Some of the details shown here will vary according to model. However, basic principles apply to all vehicles
Warning: Do not change a wheel in a situation where you risk being hit by other traffic. On busy roads, try to stop in a lay-by or a gateway. Be wary of passing traffic while changing the wheel – it is easy to become distracted by the job in hand
Unclip the wheelbrace from its holder at the rear of the luggage compartment. Lift the luggage compartment carpet to gain access to the spare wheel cradle bolt. Use the end of the wheelbrace to slacken the bolt enough to be able to unhook the cradle from its retainer on the bolt
Unhook and lower the cradle, then remove the spare wheel from underneath the vehicle. Where a space-saver spare wheel is fitted, unclip the spacer from the top of the wheel. Remove the jack holder and then place the wheel under the sill as a precaution against the jack failing
Use the jack holder to chock the wheel diagonally opposite the one being removed. Remove the wheel trim on the wheel to be changed and loosen each wheel bolt by half-a-turn
Engage the jack head with the reinforced jacking point nearest the wheel to be changed; the jacking point is the area in between the cut-outs (arrowed) on the sill. Ensure the head of the jack is positioned centrally between the cut-outs and then raise the jack until its base is in contact with the ground. Ensure the jack base is located directly below the sill and raise the vehicle until the wheel is clear off the ground. If the tyre is flat, remember to raise the vehicle sufficiently to allow the spare wheel to be fitted
Remove the bolts and lift off the wheel. Place the wheel beneath the sill as a precaution against the jack failing and then fit the spare wheel. Fit the wheel bolts and moderately tighten them with the wheelbrace
Remove the punctured wheel from under the sill and lower the vehicle to the ground. Tighten the wheel bolts in a diagonal sequence. Wheel bolts should be slackened and re-tightened to 90 Nm (66 Ibf ft) at the earliest possible opportunity
Remove the jack holder from under the wheel. Store the jack and space saver wheel spacer (where fitted – it is not needed when a normal wheel is fitted to the cradle) in the boot then fit the punctured wheel in the cradle. Hook the cradle onto its retainer then raise the cradle fully and secure it in position by tightening the wheel cradle bolt.
