  • The wheel is removed.

Mercedes-AMG vehicles: observe the notes in the Supplement. Otherwise, you may not recognize dangers.

WARNING Risk of accident from losing a wheel
Oiled, greased or damaged wheel bolt/wheel nut threads or wheel hub/wheel mounting bolt threads can cause the wheel bolts/ wheel nuts to come loose.

As a result, you could lose a wheel while driving.

  • Never oil or grease the threads.
  • In the event of damage to the threads, contact a qualified specialist workshop immediately.
  • Have the damaged wheel bolts or damaged hub threads replaced.
  • Do not continue driving.
  • Observe the information on the choice of tires.

For tires with a specified direction of rotation, an arrow on the side wall of the tire indicates the correct direction of rotation. Observe the direction of rotation when installing.

  • Slide the wheel to be mounted onto the alignment bolt and push it on.
WARNING Risk of injury from tightening wheel bolts and nuts
If you tighten the wheel bolts or wheel nuts when the vehicle is raised, the jack could tip.
  • Only tighten wheel bolts or wheel nuts when the vehicle is on the ground.
  • Be sure to observe the instructions and safety notes on "Changing a wheel"
  • For safety reasons, only use wheel bolts which have been approved by Mercedes- Benz and for the wheel in question.
NOTE Damage to paintwork of the wheel rim when screwing on the first wheel bolt
