Risk of damage to brake disks.

  • Always screw in both assembly aids when changing a wheel.

  1. Remove the remaining wheel bolts.
  2. Take the wheel off and put a new wheel on.
  • Please see the chapter "WHEEL BOLTS" on page 236.
  1. Insert wheel bolts and tighten by hand.

Screw in two assembly aids on vehicles with PCCB

  1. Remove assembly aids and screw in remaining wheel bolts.
    Initially tighten bolts only slightly in diagonally opposite sequence so that the wheel is centered.
  2. Inflate the tire if necessary.
  • Please see the chapter "TIRE PRESSURE FOR COLD TIRES (68 °F/ 20 °C)" on page 262.
  1. Lower the vehicle fully and remove the jack.
  1. Tighten wheel bolts in diagonally opposite sequence.
    Immediately after changing a wheel, use a torque wrench to check the prescribed tightening torque of the wheel bolts (160 Nm/118 ftlb.).

Note on operation for vehicles with Tire Pressure Monitoring

  • On vehicles with Tire Pressure Monitoring, the settings on the multi-function display must be updated after the wheel change.
  • Please see the chapter "TIRE PRESSURE MENU (TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING, TPM)" on page 104.

Checking tire pressure with a pressure gage

  1. Remove the valve stem cap from the tire.
  2. Press the pressure gage onto the valve stem.


  • Do not press too hard or force the valve stem sideways, or air will escape.
    If the sound of air escaping from the tire is heard, reposition the pressure gage.

  1. Read the tire pressure on the gage stem and compare it to the permissble tire pressure. This information can be found on the tire pressure plate or in the chapter Technical Data.
  2. Remove the pressure gage.
  3. Please see the chapter "TIRE PRESSURE MENU (TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING, TPM)" on page 104.
