Skoda Fabia Owners Manual

  • Remove the full wheel trim » page 155 or caps » page 155.
  • First of all slacken the anti-theft wheel bolt and then the other wheel bolts
  • Jack up the vehicle until the wheel that needs changing is clear of the ground
  • Unscrew the wheel bolts and place them on a clean surface (cloth, paper, etc.).
  • Remove the wheel carefully.
  • Attach the spare wheel and slightly screw on the wheel bolts.
  • Lower the vehicle.
  • Tighten the opposite wheel bolts alternately (cross-wise) with the wheel wrench. Tighten the anti-theft wheel bolt last
  • Reinstall the wheel trim/wheel trim cap or the caps.

Note

  • All bolts must be clean and must turn easily.
  • Under no circumstances grease or oil the wheel bolts!
  • When fitting unidirectional tyres, ensure that the direction of rotation is correct » page 153, Unidirectional tyres.

Subsequent steps

The following steps must also be performed after changing the wheel.

  • Stow and attach the replaced wheel in the spare wheel well using a special screw » page 154, Spare and back-up wheel.
  • Stow the tool kit in the space provided and secure using the strap.
  • Check the tyre pressure on the installed spare wheel as soon as possible.
  • Have the tightening torque of the wheel bolts checked with a torque wrench as soon as possible.
  • Change the damaged wheel or consult a specialist garage about repair possibilities.

Note

  • If it is determined that the wheel bolts are corroded and difficult to turn when changing the wheel, the bolts must be replaced before checking the tightening torque.
  • Drive cautiously and only at a moderate speed until the tightening torque has been checked.
