Mounting a wheel

Mount one emergency wheel only, as required.

  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 crosswise pattern until hand-tight.

  5.  Turn the vehicle jack crank counterclockwise to retract the vehicle jack and lower the vehicle.
  6.  Remove the vehicle jack and stow it securely.

    The nonworking wheel cannot be stored under the cargo floor panel because of its size.

    Reset the Tire Pressure Monitor again.
