Changing a wheel

Preliminary work

For safety's sake, the following instructions must be observed before
changing a wheel on the road.

Park the vehicle as far as possible away from the traffic flow - choose a place
with a flat and firm surface.

Switch off the engine.

For vehicles with instruction transmission, select 1 gear.

For vehicles with automatic transmission, place the selector lever in the P
position.

Firmly apply the handbrake.

Switch on the hazard warning lights and set up the warning triangle at the
prescribed distance.

Have all the occupants get out. The passengers should not stand on the
road while the wheel is being changed (they should remain behind a crash
barrier, for instance).

When fitting unidirectional tyres, ensure that the direction of rotation is cor-
rect 

» page 150

.

All bolts must be clean and must turn easily. If screws are corroded and diffi-
cult to move, these must be replaced.

WARNING

Undo the wheel bolts just a little (about one turn), provided the vehicle

has not yet been jacked up. Otherwise the wheel could come loose and fall
off – risk of injury.

Under no circumstances must the bolts be greased or oiled - cause an ac-

cident.

Subsequent steps

After changing the wheel, the following work must be carried out.

Stow the replaced wheel in the well under the floor covering of the luggage
compartment and secure with a locking screw.

Stow the vehicle tool kit in the space provided.

Check tyre pressure on the mounted wheel and adjust if necessary and, with
vehicles with tyre pressure monitoring, save the tyre pressure values in the
system 

» page 123

.

Have the tightening torque of the wheel bolts checked as soon as possible.
The prescribed tightening torque is 120 Nm.

Replace the damaged wheel or consult a specialist garage about repair op-
tions.

WARNING

Tightening torque which is too high can damage the threads and this can
result in permanent deformation of the contact surfaces on the rim. Where
tightening torque is too low, the wheels may become loose while driving -
There is a risk of an accident. Therefore drive cautiously and only at a mod-
erate speed until the tightening torque has been checked.

Jump-starting

Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:
Jump-starting using the battery from another vehicle

161

WARNING

The following instructions must be followed at all times when working on

the engine compartment 

» page 142

.

When handling the vehicle battery, the following warnings must be ob-

served 

» page 147

.

A discharged vehicle battery may already freeze at temperatures just be-

low 0 °C. If the battery is frozen, do not carry out a jump start with the bat-
tery of another vehicle – There is a risk of explosion and injury!

Never jump-start vehicle batteries with an electrolyte level that is too low

– There is a risk of explosion and caustic burns!

Jump-starting using the battery from another vehicle

Fig. 178  Jump-starting:  - Discharged battery,  - power-supplying bat-
tery / ground point of the engine for the START-STOP system

Read and observe   on page 161 first.

If, because of a discharged battery, it is not possible to start the engine, the
battery of another vehicle can be used to start the engine. To do this, jump-
start cables are required which have a sufficiently large cross-section and in-
sulated terminal clamps.
The rated voltage of the two batteries must be 12 V. The capacity (Ah) of the
power-supplying battery must not be significantly lower than the capacity of
the discharged battery.

The jump-start cables must be attached in the following sequence.

Attach clamp 

1

 to the positive terminal of the discharged battery.

Attach clamp 

2

 to the positive terminal of the power-supplying battery.

Attach clamp 

3

 to the negative terminal of the power-supplying battery.

For vehicles with the START-STOPsystem, attach clamp 

4

 to the earth point

of the engine 

A

» Fig. 178

.

For vehicles without the START-STOPsystem, attach clamp 

4

 to a solid

metal part firmly attached to the engine block or directly to the engine block.

Starting engine

Start the engine on the vehicle providing the power and allow it to idle.

Initiate the starting process in the vehicle with the discharged battery.

If the engine does not start within 10 s, then cancel the starting procedure
and repeat after half a minute.

Remove the jump start cables in the reverse order as attachment.

161

Emergency equipment and self-help

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WARNING

Never clamp the jump cable to the negative terminal of the discharged

battery -There is a risk of an explosion.

The non-insulated parts of the terminal clamps must never touch each

other – risk of short circuit!

The jump-start cable connected to the positive terminal of the battery

must not come into contact with electrically conducting parts of the vehicle
– risk of short circuit!

Position the jump cables so that they cannot be caught in rotating parts

in the engine compartment - danger of injuries and the risk of vehicle dam-
age.

Towing the vehicle

Information about the towing process

Fig. 179  Braided tow rope / Spiral tow rope

To tow with a tow rope, only use a braided synthetic fibre rope 

» Fig. 179

 -

» 

.

Attach the tow rope or the tow bar to the towing eyes at the front

» page 163

towing eyes at the rear 

» page 163

 or to the towing device of

the trailer device 

» page 124

.

Conditions for towing.

Cars with automatic gearboxes must not be towed with the rear wheels
raised - there is a risk of gearbox damage!
If the gearbox has no oil, your vehicle must be towed with the front axle
raised clear of the ground or on a breakdown vehicle or trailer.

The maximum towing speed is 50 km/h.
The vehicle must be transported on a special breakdown vehicle or trailer
if it is not possible to tow in the vehicle in the way described or if the tow-
ing distance is greater than 50 km.

Driver of the tow vehicle

On vehicles with manual transmission, engage gear slowly when starting.

On vehicles with automatic transmission, accelerate with particular care.

Only then approach correctly when the rope is taut.

Driver of the towed vehicle

If possible, the vehicle should be towed with the engine running. The brake
booster and power steering only operate if the engine is running, otherwise
much greater force has to be applied to the brake pedal and more power has
to be expended for steering.

If it is not possible to start the engine, switch on the ignition so that the
steering wheel does not lock and so that the turn signal lights, windscreen
wipers and windscreen washer system can be used.

Take the vehicle out of gear or move the selector lever into position N if the
vehicle is fitted with an automatic gearbox.

Keep the tow rope taut at all times during the towing procedure.

WARNING

Spiral tow ropes must not be used for towing 

» Fig. 179

, the towing

eye may unscrew out of the vehicle - There is a risk of an accident.

Ensure tow rope is not twisted - risk of accident.

CAUTION

Do not tow-start the engine – There is a risk of damaging the engine. The

battery from another vehicle can be used as a jump-start aid
