Only the spanner delivered with the vehicle should be used to loosen the wheel bolts.
Loosen the wheel bolts only about one turn before raising the vehicle with the jack.
If the wheel bolt is very tight, you may be able to loosen it by pushing down the end of the spanner carefully with your foot. Hold on to the car for support and take care not to slip.
Loosening the wheel bolts
Loosening the anti-theft wheel bolt
The anti-theft wheel bolt must be bolted into position вЂ‰ or в‘ў on wheels with a wheel cover. The wheel cover can otherwise not be fitted.
Important information about the wheel bolts
The design of the wheel rims and wheel bolts is matched to the factory-installed wheels. If different rims are fitted, the correct wheel bolts with the right length and correctly shaped bolt heads must be used. This ensures that wheels are fitted securely and that the brake system works properly.
Wheel bolts from a vehicles of the same model series may, in certain circumstances, not be used.
Tightening torque for the wheel bolts
The tightening torque for wheel bolts for steel and alloy wheels is 120 Nm. Have the tightening torque immediately checked with a torque wrench after changing a wheel.
If the wheel bolts are corroded and difficult to turn, they must be replaced and the wheel hub threads cleaned before the tightening torque is checked.
Never grease or lubricate wheel bolts or the threads of the wheel hub. They could otherwise loosen while the vehicle is in motion, even if the required torque setting is used.
WARNINGIncorrectly tightened wheel bolts can loosen while the vehicle is in motion and cause accidents, serious injury and the loss of control over the vehicle.
