Peugeot 2008. Spare wheel Parking the vehicle

Immobilise the vehicle where it does not obstruct traffic: the ground must be level, stable and non-slippery.

With a manual gearbox, engage first gear to lock the wheels, apply the parking brake, unless it is programmed to be in automatic mode, and switch off the ignition.

With an automatic gearbox, select mode  P to lock the wheels, apply the parking brake, unless it is programmed to be in automatic mode, and switch off the ignition.

Check for the fixed illumination of the parking brake warning lamps in the instrument panel.

The occupants must get out of the vehicle and wait where they are safe.

If necessary, place a chock under the wheel diagonally opposite the wheel to be changed.

Never go underneath a vehicle raised using a jack; use an axle stand.

  • To remove the wheel bolt cover on each of the bolts, use tool  7 (alloy wheels).
  • Fit security socket  2 on wheelbrace  5 to slacken the security bolt.

  • Place the foot of jack  6 on the ground and ensure that it is directly below the front  A or rear  B jacking point on the underbody, whichever is closest to the wheel to be changed.

Peugeot 2008. Spare wheel

  • Extend jack  6 until its head comes into contact with jacking point  A or B; contact area  A or B on the vehicle must be properly inserted into the central part of the head of the jack.
  • Raise the vehicle until there is sufficient space between the wheel and the ground to admit the spare (not punctured) wheel easily.

Peugeot 2008. Spare wheel Ensure that the jack is stable. If the ground is slippery or loose, the jack may slip or collapse - risk of injury!

Take care to position the jack strictly at one of the jacking points  A or B under the vehicle, ensuring that the head of the jack is centred under the contact area of the vehicle.

Otherwise, there is a risk of damage to the vehicle and/or of the jack collapsing - risk of injury!
