1. Unscrew the lug bolts.
2. Remove the wheel.
3. Put the new wheel or emergency wheel on
and screw in at least two lug bolts in a cross‐
wise pattern until hand-tight.
If non-original light-alloy wheels of the vehicle
manufacturer are mounted, the accompany‐
ing lug bolts may have to be used as well.
4. Hand-tighten the remaining lug bolts and
tighten all lug bolts well in a crosswise pat‐
5. Turn the vehicle jack crank counterclockwise
to retract the vehicle jack and lower the vehi‐
6. Remove the vehicle jack and stow it securely.
After the wheel change
Tighten the lug bolts crosswise. The tighten‐
ing torque is 101 lbs ft/140 Nm.
2. Stow the nonworking wheel in the cargo area,
The nonworking wheel cannot be stored un‐
der the cargo floor panel because of its size.
3. Check tire inflation pressure at the next op‐
portunity and correct as needed.
4. Reinitialize the Flat Tire Monitor.

In the event of a flat tire, the emergency wheel
can be used in place of the wheel with the defec‐
tive tire. The emergency wheel is only intended
for temporary use until the defective tire/wheel
has been replaced.
Mount one emergency wheel only.
Also check the tire inflation pressure of the
emergency wheel in the cargo area regularly, and
correct it as needed.
The emergency wheel has particular dimen‐
sions. When driving with an emergency wheel,
changed driving properties may occur, for in‐
stance reduced lane stability when braking, lon‐
ger braking distance, and changed self-steering
properties in the limit area. There is a risk of ac‐
cident. Drive moderately and do not exceed a
speed of 50 mph/80 km/h.
The emergency wheel and the wheel change
tools are located in the cargo area under the
cargo floor panel.
