Land Rover Discovery: Using wheel chocks

Note: Not all vehicles have wheel chocks supplied as part of the tool kit.

Wheel chocks are a useful addition to a vehicle's tool kit. Note the following advice when using wheel chocks:

  • Before raising the vehicle, the wheel diagonally opposite the one to be removed must be chocked.
  • Always chock the wheels using suitable wheel chocks. Place the chocks on both sides of the wheel diagonally opposite the wheel to be changed.
  • If jacking the vehicle on a slight slope is unavoidable, place the chocks on the downhill side of both wheels on the axle not being raised.


Do not use air tools or power tools to remove or to re-fit the locking wheel nut. Doing so may damage the locking wheel nut or the adaptor.

Locking wheel nuts can be removed and installed using only the special adaptor provided.

Note: A code number is stamped onto the underside of the adaptor. This number should be recorded in the service book, supplied with the literature pack. If a replacement adaptor is required, you will be asked to quote this number.


To release:

  1. Insert the wheel nut adaptor into the locking wheel nut, making sure that it is fully engaged.
  2. Locate the wheel brace over the adaptor and unscrew the wheel nut half a turn counter-clockwise.
  3. After raising the vehicle on the jack, remove the locking wheel nut.

Note: When the vehicle is first supplied, the wheel nut adaptor may be stored in the glovebox. If this is the case, the wheel nut adaptor must be moved to its correct storage position in the loadspace, as soon as possible.
