2. Park the vehicle on a flat, hard surface and apply the parking brake. To prevent the vehicle from rolling when it is raised on the jack, chock the wheel (A) diagonally opposite to that being changed (B).

CAUTION

Be sure to apply a chock to the relevant tyre when jacking up the vehicle. If the vehicle moved while jacked up, the jack could slip out of position, leading to an accident.

NOTE

(1) The chock shown in the illustration is not supplied with the vehicle. It is recommended one be obtained and carried for use if required.
(2) If a chock is not available, use a stone or any other object that is large enough to hold the wheel in position.

8. Lower the vehicle slowly and then tighten the nuts diagonally in two or three steps until each nut has been tightened to the specified torque.

Tightening torque:

98 to 117 Nm
(Achieved by applying force of approx. 390 to 450N at end of wheel nut wrench supplied with vehicle)

CAUTION

Never use extra force with your foot on the wheel nut wrench or by using a pipe extension as you can overtighten the nut.
