Stopping the vehicle

2. Turn on the hazard warning flashers.

3. Park on a level surface and apply the parking brake. Shift the Automatic Transmission (A/T) or the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) models into P (Park) or the Manual Transmission (M/T) model into R (Reverse).

4. Turn off the engine.

5. Raise the hood to warn other traffic and to signal professional road assistance personnel that you need assistance.

Jacking up vehicle and removing the damaged tire

Jacking up vehicle and removing the damaged tire

WARNING

  • Never get under the vehicle while it is supported only by the jack. If it is necessary to work under the vehicle, support it with safety stands.
  • Use only the jack provided with your vehicle to lift the vehicle. Do not use the jack provided with your vehicle on other vehicles. The jack is designed for lifting only your vehicle during a tire change.
  • Use the correct jack-up points. Never use any other part of the vehicle for jack support.
  • Never jack up the vehicle more than necessary.
  • Never use blocks on or under the jack.
  • Do not start or run the engine while vehicle is on the jack. It may cause the vehicle to move. This is especially true for vehicles with limited slip differentials.
  • Do not allow passengers to stay in the vehicle while it is on the jack.
  • Never run the engine with a wheel(s) off the ground. It may cause the vehicle to move.

Jacking up vehicle and removing the damaged tire

Always refer to the proper illustrations for the correct placement and jack-up points for your specific vehicle model and jack type.

Carefully read the caution label attached to the jack body and the following instructions.

1. Loosen each wheel nut 1 or 2 turns by turning counterclockwise with the wheel nut wrench. Do not remove the wheel nuts until the tire is off the ground.

2. Place the jack directly under the jack-up point as illustrated so the top of the jack contacts the vehicle at the jack-up point.

Align the jack head between the 2 notches in the front or the rear as shown. Also fit the groove of the jack head between the notches as shown.

The jack should be used on firm and level ground.

3. To lift the vehicle, securely hold the jack lever and rod with both hands. Carefully raise the vehicle until the tire clears the ground. Remove the wheel nuts, and then remove the tire.

Installing the spare tire

Installing the spare tire

The spare tire is designed for emergency use. For additional information, refer to "Wheels and tires" in the "Do-it-yourself" section of this manual.

1. Clean any mud or dirt from the surface between the wheel and hub.

2. Carefully put the spare tire on and tighten the wheel nuts finger tight.

3. With the wheel nut wrench, tighten wheel nuts alternately and evenly in the sequence illustrated ( A , B , C , D ) until they are tight.

4. Lower the vehicle slowly until the tire touches the ground. Then, with the wheel nut wrench, tighten the wheel nuts securely in the sequence illustrated ( A , B , C , D ).

Lower the vehicle completely.

WARNING

  • Incorrect wheel nuts or improperly tightened wheel nuts can cause the wheel to become loose or come off.

    This could cause an accident.

  • Do not use oil or grease on the wheel studs or nuts. This could cause the nuts to become loose.
  • Retighten the wheel nuts when the vehicle has been driven for 600 miles (1,000 km) (also in cases of a flat tire, etc.).

As soon as possible, tighten the wheel nuts to the specified torque with a torque wrench.

Wheel nut tightening torque: 83 ft-lb (113 N*m)

The wheel nuts must be kept tightened to specification at all times. It is recommended that wheel nuts be tightened to specification at each lubrication interval.

Adjust tire pressure to the COLD pressure.

COLD pressure: After vehicle has been parked for 3 hours or more or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km).

COLD tire pressures are shown on the Tire and Loading Information label affixed to the driver side center pillar.

5. Securely store the flat tire in the vehicle.

6. Install the jack in its storage area between floor and bracket for jack mounting.

7. Install tools between the side of the spare tire (3 o'clock position) and the spare tire pan without looseness.

8. Place the spare tire cover and the floor covering over the damaged tire.

9. Close the trunk.

WARNING

  • Always make sure that the spare tire and jacking equipment are properly secured after use. Such items can become dangerous projectiles in an accident or sudden stop.
  • The spare tire is designed for emergency use. For additional information, refer to "Wheels and tires" in the "Doit- yourself" section of this manual.
