head must be positioned at the same
height as plate mounting 1, as close as
possible to the wheel concerned, indi-
cated by an arrow 2.
If the vehicle is not equipped with a
jack or wheelbrace, you can obtain
these from your approved dealer.
If the vehicle is parked on
the hard shoulder, you must
warn other road users of
your vehicle's presence

off the ground.

or damage to the vehicle,
only crank the jack until the
wheel you are replacing is
a maximum of 3 centimetres off the
ground.
