3.16.1. Replacement of a wheel

Replacement of a wheel is shown on the example of the Chevrolet Lanos car

1. Open a luggage carrier (is in it all necessary for replacement of a wheel) and, having hooked a finger through an opening an upholstery of a trunk floor and a cover of a niche for a spare wheel …
2. … cast away a cover together with an upholstery.
3. Turn off and remove a clamp of a spare wheel.
4. Take out a spare wheel from a luggage carrier and put it near the replaced wheel.
5. Take off a decorative cap, overcoming effort of its fixing spring.
6. Include the I transfer and the parking brake. Establish a jack under the car near a wheel which needs to be replaced (see. "Use of a jack").

Not to be soiled when replacing a wheel, put on gloves and overalls if they are in your car.

7. From the opposite side the car needs to be fixed, having enclosed under forward and back wheels an antiretractable emphasis so that the lifted car could not be displaced forward or back.
8. By means of a jack slightly raise the car, but so that the wheel demanding replacement did not come off the road. A balloon key weaken four bolts of fastening of a wheel.

In order that it was easier to turn out wheel bolts, it is possible to use not hands, but a leg, stepping from above on the handle of a balloon key.
For simplification of a reversing of bolts we recommend to get a special balloon key with the telescopic handle. It is convenient to work also with a balloon key of a crosswise form.

9. Lift a jack the car so that the wheel came off the road then completely turn out bolts and remove a wheel.

Try that the car as little as possible time was in the hung-out state with the removed wheel.
Raise the car a jack only on height necessary for removal and installation of a wheel.
If you use soft soil, enclose a thick board under the jack basis. Do not apply bricks to this purpose: they easily break up and the car can break from a jack, having hard injured you.

10. Establish a spare wheel to the place of removed, screw fixing bolts against the stop, but do not tighten them …

Rolling bolts, track that their conical parts were combined with conical surfaces of openings in a wheel disk, otherwise during the movement bolts will weaken and loss of a wheel is possible.

11. … lower the car and finally tighten bolts. Tighten wheel bolts cross-wise. In order to avoid damage of a disk of a wheel do not try "to hold on" bolts of fastening of a wheel, pressing a leg the key handle.

To feel necessary effort of an inhaling of bolts of fastening of a wheel (the moment of an inhaling of 90 N · l), at first apply a dynamometer key.
Do not grease fastening bolts — it can lead to their samootvorachivaniye during the movement of the car.

12. Establish a decorative cap.
13. Before continuing the movement, surely check air pressure in the tire of the established wheel.

Tubeless tires are installed on the car. If you have not enough skills of installation of tires, advise not to try to perform this work independently: one damage of a sidewall — also should be bought the new tire or to insert the camera.
In a desperate situation it is possible to use the special first-aid kit for repair of tubeless tires without razbortovka or sealant for tires. It is necessary to apply them according to the enclosed instruction.
Than the tubeless tire is better chamber? First, tubeless at a puncture "lowers" very slowly: it is possible, pumping up, for weeks to go with a nail in a wheel, there will be yet no opportunity to repair it. Secondly, when at very considerable run from the tubeless tire metal cord delays will begin to act, it still can be used as a spare wheel. To insert the camera into such tire it is useless: she will make a mistake already at the first inflating.
