CAUTION

Improper use of the tire jack may lead to death or serious injuries due to the vehicle suddenly falling off the jack.

  • Do not use the tire jack for any purpose other than replacing tires or installing and removing tire chains.
  • Only use the tire jack that comes with this vehicle for replacing a flat tire.

Do not use it on other vehicles, and do not use other tire jacks for replacing tires on this vehicle.

  • Always check that the tire jack is securely set to the jack point.
  • Do not raise the vehicle while someone is in it.
  • When raising the vehicle, do not put an object on or under the jack.
  • Do not raise the vehicle to a height greater than that required to replace the tire.
  • Use a jack stand if it is necessary to get under the vehicle.
  • Do not put any part of your body under the vehicle supported by a jack.
  • Do not start or run the engine while your vehicle is supported by the jack.

Take particular care when lowering the vehicle to ensure that no one working on or near the vehicle may be injured.

  • Using the jack handle

CAUTION

  • Replacing a flat tire

  • Observe the following precautions.

Failure to do so may result in serious injury:

  •  Lower the spare tire completely to the ground before removing it from under the vehicle.
  •  Do not try to remove the wheel ornament by hand. Take due care in handling the ornament to avoid unexpected personal injury.
  •  Do not touch the disc wheels or the area around the brakes immediately after the vehicle has been driven.

After the vehicle has been driven the disc wheels and the area around the brakes will be extremely hot. Touching these areas with hands, feet or other body parts while changing a tire, etc. may result in burns.

  • Failure to follow these precautions could cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the tire to fall off, resulting in death or serious injury.
  •  Have the wheel nuts tightened with a torque wrench to 97 ftlbf (131 Nm, 13.4 kgfm) as soon as possible after changing wheels.
  •  When installing a tire, only use wheel nuts that have been specifically designed for that wheel.
  •  If there are any cracks or deformations in the bolt screws, nut threads or bolt holes of the wheel, have the vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer.
  •  Do not attach a heavily damaged wheel ornament, as it may fly off the wheel while the vehicle is moving.
  •  When installing the wheel nuts, be sure to install them with the tapered ends facing inward.

 

NOTICE

  • Do not drive the vehicle with a flat tire

Do not continue driving with a flat tire.

Driving even a short distance with a flat tire can damage the tire and the wheel beyond repair.

  • When stowing the flat tire

Ensure that there is no object caught between the tire and the vehicle underbody.

  • When replacing the tires

When removing or fitting the wheels, tires or the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter, contact your Toyota dealer as the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter may be damaged if not handled correctly.

  • To avoid damage to the tire pressure warning valves and transmitters

When a tire is repaired with liquid sealants, the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter may not operate properly. If a liquid sealant is used, contact your Toyota dealer or other qualified service shop as soon as possible. Make sure to replace the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter when replacing the tire.
