Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Preparation for changing a wheel

 → Wheel bolts

 → Lifting the vehicle with the jack

 → Changing a wheel

 → After changing a wheel

Some models are delivered without a factory-fitted jack or box spanner. If this is the case, the wheel should be changed by a qualified workshop.

The vehicle jack supplied with the vehicle is only designed for changing a wheel when one vehicle tyre is damaged and has to be replaced. Seek expert assistance if both tyres on one side of the vehicle, both tyres on one axle, or all tyres are damaged.

Only change the wheel yourself when the car is parked in a safe place, you are familiar with the necessary steps and safety procedures and you have access to all the correct tools. Seek expert assistance if this is not the case.
