Service Procedure

 

Spare tire replacement procedure

 

  1. Remove the plastic access cover located on the side of the front passenger’s seat. To remove the cover, pull the front part of the cover (closest to the front of the seat) toward you to release a locking tab. Once the front of the cover is loose, slide the cover toward the front of the seat until it is free from the seat frame, then remove cover (Figure 1).

 

  1. To remove the jack and tools, turn the wing bolt counterclockwise then remove the wing bolt and slide the assembly out from under the seat (Figure 2).

 

  1. Release the tool bag straps from the jack and remove tools from bag (Figure 3).

 

  1. Assemble the tools for lowering/raising the spare tire (Figure 4).

 

  1. Using a trim stick remove the access cover near the top right side of the rear bumper (Figure 5).

 

  1. Insert the tool into the cone-end of the receiving end and turn counterclockwise to lower the spare tire, then remove tire from the winch (Figure 6).

 

  1. Disconnect the winch cable from the tire and remove the tire from the vehicle and DISCARD. Install the NEW valve stem and NEW tire onto the NEW wheel, balance and set tire pressure to what’s indicated on the tire placard label.

 

NOTE: Dealer are required to drill a half inch hole into the side-wall of  the removed tire, and dispose it in accordance to their state rules and  regulations.

 

  1. Align the NEW spare tire to the underbody and insert the winch cable end into the center of the wheel (Figure 7).

 

  1. Turn the winch in the clockwise direction until the tire is fully retracted into the spare tire area (Figure 6).

 

  1. Reinstall the access cover (Figure 5).

 

  1. Disassemble the winch tool and place them into the storage bag.

 

  1. Strap the storage bag unto the jack and insert the assembly under the passenger seat, making sure to align the jack end to the wing bolt (Figure 2).

 

  1. Align the plastic side cover to the seat and install the cover (Figure 1).

 

DANGER: After using the jack and tools, always reinstall them in the original carrier and location. While driving you may experience abrupt stopping, rapid acceleration or sharp turns. A loose jack, tools, bracket or other objects in the vehicle may move around with force, resulting in serious injury.

 

  1. Return the vehicle to the customer.
