Changing a wheel can be dangerous, especially if it is done at the side of a road. Please note the following points in order to reduce the risk of serious injuries:
  • Stop the vehicle as soon as it is possible and safe to do so. Park the vehicle at a safe distance from moving traffic in order to carry out the wheel change.
  • All passengers and children in particular must be at a safe distance and away from your area of work during the wheel change.
  • Switch on hazard warning lights to warn other road users.
  • Make sure that the ground is flat and firm. If necessary use a large, strong board or similar support for the vehicle jack.
  • Only change the wheel yourself when you feel confident with carrying out the procedure. If not, use expert assistance.
  • Always use suitable and undamaged tools to change the wheel.
  • Always switch off the engine, apply the handbrake and move the selector lever to the position P or select a gear on a manual gearbox in order to reduce the risk of unintended vehicle movement.
  • Have the wheel bolt tightening torque immediately checked with a torque wrench after changing a wheel.
