Changing a wheel
« on: January 24, 2013, 09:00:07 PM »
hey, heres a quick guide to changing a wheel

Tools Required
Jack preferable Hydraulic one
Socket most common sizes 17,19,21. Better than the wheel wrench in the boot
Torque Wrench and setting ( should be in the handbook )
Remove access to wheel nuts if required


Loosen, DON’T remove the wheel nuts
Jack the car up using the jacking points, reinforced sections

Place the spare wheel under the sill or use an axle stand
NEVER CLIMB UNDER A CAR SUPPORTED ONLY BY A JACK, IF ACCESS UNDER THE CAR IS REQUIRED SUPPORT IT USING AXLE STANDS
Remove the nuts carefully
Remove the wheel

If you have any fit some copperslip to the hub, or the back of the wheel. This will help to remove the wheels at a later date

Line up the new wheel and fit the nuts loosely by hand

Tighten up in this order until the wheel turns
5 Stud

Lower the car back to the ground and switch to the torque wrench
Set the torque wrench to the specified amount
Tighten the nuts in the same order as above until the wrench clicks or shows specified amount ( this will depend on what wrench your using)



note : I tightened up in the opposite order to what I showed above. Done in the order 1,5,4,3,2 numbers were
 added to the pic after id finished . as long as you do opposite wheel bolts


This is a simple guide, always read all instruction provided by you tool manufactures and in your cars handbook,
I take no responsibility for any loss or damage by following this information :)
