Land Rover Discovery Owners & Service Manuals

Land Rover Discovery: Wheel changing

Before raising the vehicle, refer to all warnings at the beginning of this section of the Owner's Handbook.

Before changing a wheel, read and observe the warnings

If your vehicle is fitted with side steps or tubes, DO NOT use them as jacking points.

Note: Your vehicle may be fitted with a tilt sensor, which activates the alarm if the vehicle is tilted in any direction after it has been locked. To lock the doors while changing the wheel, and avoid the alarm activating, the tilt sensor can be temporarily disabled.

Wheel changing

  1. Before raising the vehicle, use the wheel nut brace to slacken the wheel nuts of the wheel to be replaced, by half a turn counter-clockwise.
  2. Locate the jack under the relevant jacking point.

Note: Do not allow the jack to contact the sill at any other point, as damage may result.

  1. Unfold the cranking handle from its stowed position on the jack. Fit the wheel nut brace to the end of the cranking lever.
  2. Rotate the handle clockwise to raise the jack until the jack, pin locates into the jacking point.
  3. Raise the vehicle until the wheel is clear of the ground.
  4. Remove the wheel nuts and place them together where they cannot roll away.
  5. Remove the wheel and place it to one side. Do not lay the wheel on its face, as this may damage the finish.
  6. Fit the temporary spare wheel to the hub.
  7. Re-fit the wheel nuts and lightly tighten them. Make sure the wheel is making contact with the hub evenly.
  8. Make sure the space under the vehicle is clear of obstructions before lowering the vehicle slowly and smoothly.
  9. With all of the wheels on the ground and the jack removed, fully tighten the wheel nuts. The wheel nuts must be tightened in sequence (see the illustration below) to the correct torque of 133 Nm.

Wheel changing

Note: If it is not possible to torque the wheel nuts when a wheel is replaced, they should be set to the correct torque as soon as possible.

Check and adjust the tyre pressure as soon as possible.
