If you have a fl at tyre, drive slowly to a level spot that is well off the road and out of the way of traffi c to change the tyre.

Stopping in traffi c or on the shoulder of a busy road is dangerous.

No person should place any portion of their body under a vehicle that is supported by a jack.

Never allow anyone inside a vehicle supported by a jack: Allowing someone to remain in a vehicle supported by a jack is dangerous. The occupant could cause the vehicle to fall resulting in serious injury.

NOTE

Make sure the jack is well lubricated before using it.

WARNING

Use only the front and rear jacking positions recommended in this manual: Attempting to jack the vehicle in positions other than those recommended in this manual is dangerous. The vehicle could slip off the jack and seriously injure or even kill someone. Use only the front and rear jacking positions recommended in this manual.

Do not jack up the vehicle in a position other than the designated jack-up position or place any objects on or under the jack: Jacking up the vehicle in a position other than the designated jack-up position or placing objects on or under the jack is dangerous as it could deform the vehicle body or the vehicle could fall off the jack resulting in an accident.

Use only the jack provided with your Mazda: Using a jack that is not designed for your Mazda is dangerous. The vehicle could slip off the jack and seriously injure someone.

Never place objects under the jack: Jacking the vehicle with an object under the jack is dangerous. The jack could slip and someone could be seriously injured by the jack or the falling vehicle.

  1. Insert the jack lever and attach the wheel brace to tyre jack.

WARNING

Do not jack up the vehicle higher than is necessary: Jacking up the vehicle higher than is necessary is dangerous as it could destabilize the vehicle resulting in an accident.

Do not start the engine or shake the vehicle while it is jacked up: Starting the engine or shaking the vehicle while it is jacked up is dangerous as it could cause the vehicle to fall off the jack resulting in an accident.

Never go under the vehicle while it is jacked up: Going under the vehicle while it is jacked up is dangerous as it could result in death or serious injury if the vehicle were to fall off the jack.

  1. Remove the wheel nuts by turning them anticlockwise; then remove the wheel and centre cap.

Mounting the Spare Tyre

  1. Remove dirt and grime from the mounting surfaces of the wheel and hub, including the hub bolts, with a cloth.

Mounting the Spare Tyre


WARNING

Make sure the mounting surfaces of the wheel, hub and wheel nuts are clean before changing or replacing tyres: When changing or replacing a tyre, not removing dirt and grime from the mounting surfaces of the wheel, hub and hub bolts is dangerous. The wheel nuts could loosen while driving and cause the tyre to come off, resulting in an accident.

  1. Mount the spare tyre.
  2. Install the wheel nuts with the bevelled edge inward; tighten them by hand.

Mounting the Spare Tyre


WARNING

Do not apply oil or grease to wheel nuts and bolts and do not tighten the wheel nuts beyond the recommended tightening torque: Applying oil or grease to wheel nuts and bolts is dangerous. The wheel nuts could loosen while driving and cause the tyre to come off, resulting in an accident. In addition, wheel nuts and bolts could be damaged if tightened more than necessary.

  1. Turn the wheel brace anticlockwise and lower the vehicle. Use the wheel brace to tighten the nuts in the order shown.

Mounting the Spare Tyre


If you are unsure of how tight the nuts should be, have them inspected at an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer.


WARNING

Always securely and correctly tighten the wheel nuts: Improperly or loosely tightened wheel nuts are dangerous. The wheel could wobble or come off. This could result in loss of vehicle control and cause a serious accident.

Be sure to reinstall the same nuts you removed or replace them with metric nuts of the same confi guration: Because the wheel studs and wheel nuts on your Mazda have metric threads, using a non-metric nut is dangerous. On a metric stud, it would not secure the wheel and would damage the stud, which could cause the wheel to slip off and cause an accident.

  1. Remove the tyre blocks and store the tools and jack.
  2. Store the damaged tyre in the luggage compartment.
  3. Check the infl ation pressure. Refer to Tyres on page 9-10 .
  4. Have the fl at tyre repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

NOTE

(With tyre pressure monitoring system) Do not press the tyre pressure monitoring system set switch after installing the spare tyre. The switch is only to be pressed after installing the repaired fl at tyre or installing a replacement tyre (page 4-37 ).

WARNING

Do not drive with any tyres that have incorrect air pressure: Driving on tyres with incorrect air pressure is dangerous. Tyres with incorrect pressure could affect handling and result in an accident.

When you check the regular tyres' air pressure, check the spare tyre, too.

NOTE

To prevent the jack and tool from rattling, store them properly.
