■After completing the tire change Stow the tools and jack securely.

■After completing the tire change

The tire pressure warning system must be reset.

■When using the temporary spare tire

As the temporary spare tire is not equipped with the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter, low inflation pressure of the spare tire will not be warned. Also, if you replace the temporary spare tire after the tire pressure warning light comes on, the light remains on.

CAUTION

■Using the jack

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

●Do not use the jack for any purpose other than replacing tires or installing and removing tire chains.

●Only use the jack that comes with this vehicle for replacing a flat tire.

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

●Always check that the jack is securely set to the jack point.

●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.

●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.

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

■Using the jack handle

Tighten all the screws securely to prevent the extension parts from coming apart unexpectedly.

■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.

CAUTION

■Replacing a flat tire

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 83 ftlbf (113 Nm, 11.5 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.

■When using the temporary spare tire

●Remember that your temporary spare tire is specifically designed for use with your vehicle. Do not use your temporary spare tire on another vehicle.

●Do not use two temporary spare tires simultaneously.

●Replace the temporary spare tire with a standard tire as soon as possible.

●Avoid sudden acceleration, deceleration and braking, as well as sharp cornering.

CAUTION

■Speed limit when using the temporary spare tire

Do not drive at speeds in excess of 50 mph (80 km/h) when a temporary spare tire is installed on the vehicle.

The temporary spare tire is not designed for driving at high speeds. Failing to observe this precaution may lead to an accident causing death or serious injury.

■Driving with tire chains and the temporary spare tire

Do not fit tire chains to the temporary spare tire.

Tire chains may damage the vehicle body and adversely affect driving performance.

■When the spare tire is attached

The vehicle speed may not be correctly detected, and the following systems may not operate correctly: ●ABS & Brake assist

●VSC

●TRAC

●Active traction control system (if equipped)

●Hill-start assist control system (if equipped)

●Downhill assist control system (if equipped)

●AUTO LSD system

●Cruise control (if equipped)

Also, not only can the following system not be utilized fully, it may actually negatively effect the drive-train components: ●4WD system

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.

●Replace the grommets for the tire pressure warning valves and transmitters as well.

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