Hyundai Santa Cruz: If you have a Flat Tire / Changing Tires

WARNING

A vehicle can slip or roll off of a jack causing serious injury or death to you or those nearby. Take the following safety precautions:

  • Do not get under a vehicle that is supported by a jack.
  • NEVER attempt to change a tire in the lane of traffic. ALWAYS move the vehicle completely off the road on level, firm ground away from traffic before trying to change a tire. If you cannot find a level, firm place off the road, call a towing service for assistance.
  • Be sure to use the jack provided with the vehicle.
  • ALWAYS place the jack on the designated jacking positions on the vehicle and NEVER on the bumpers or any other part of the vehicle for jacking support.
  • Do not start or run the engine while the vehicle is on the jack.
  • Do not allow anyone to remain in the vehicle while it is on the jack.
  • Keep children away from the road and the vehicle.

WARNING

Tire jack

Do not place any portion of yourbody under a vehicle that is onlysupported by a jack since the vehiclecan easily roll off the jack. Use vehicle support stands.

WARNING

Running vehicle on jack

  • Do not start or run the engine of the vehicle while the vehicle is on the jack as this may cause the vehicle to fall off the jack.
  • To prevent the jack from rattling while the vehicle IS in motion, store it properly.

NOTICE

Retreaded tires

Possibly substantial variations in thedesign and age of the tire casingstructures can limit service life andhave a negative impact on roadsafety.

Follow these steps to change your vehicle’s tire:

1. Park on a level, firm surface.

2. Shift the gear to P (Park), apply the parking brake, and press the Engine Start/Stop button to the OFF position or place the ignition switch in the LOCK/OFF position.

3. Press the hazard warning flasher button.

4. Remove the wheel lug wrench, jack, jack handle, and spare tire from the vehicle.

[A] : Block

5. Block both the front and rear of the tire diagonally opposite of the tire you are changing.

6. Loosen the wheel nuts counterclockwise one turn each in the order shown above, but do not remove any wheel nuts until the tire has been raised off of the ground.

7. Place the jack at the designated jacking position under the frame closest to the tire you are changing. The jacking positions are plates welded to the frame with two notches. Never jack at any other position or part of the vehicle. Doing so may damage the side seal molding or other parts of the vehicle.

8. Insert the jack handle into the jackand turn it clockwise, raising the vehicle until the tire just clears the ground. This measurement is approximately 1.2 inches (30 mm). Before removing the wheellug nuts, make sure the vehicle is stable and that there is no chance for movement or slippage.

9. Loosen the lug nuts with the wheel lug nut wrench and remove them with your fingers. Remove the wheel from the studs and lay it flat on the ground out of the way. Remove any dirt or debris from the studs, mounting mounting surfaces and wheel.

WARNING

Wheels may have sharp edges. Handle them carefully to avoid possible severe injury. Before putting the wheel into place, be sure that there is nothing on the hub or wheel (such as mud, tar, gravel, etc.) that interferes with the wheel from fitting solidly against the hub.

If there is, remove it. If there is not good contact on the mounting surface between the wheel and hub, the wheel nuts could come loose and cause the loss of a wheel. Loss of a wheel may result in loss of control of the vehicle. This may cause serious injury or death.

10. Install the spare tire onto the studs of the hub.

11. Tighten the lug nuts with your fingers onto the studs with the smaller end of the lug nuts closest to the wheel.

12. Lower the vehicle to the ground by turning the jack handle counterclockwise.

13. Use the wheel lug wrench to tighten the wheel nuts in the order shown. Double-check each wheel nuts until they are tight. After changing tires, have an authorized HYUNDAI dealer tighten the wheel nuts to their proper torque as soon as possible. The wheel nuts should be tightened to 79~94 lbf.ft (11~13 kgf.m).

If you have a tire gauge, check the tire pressure (see “Tires and Wheels” section in chapter 2 for tire pressure instructions.). If the pressure is lower or higher than recommended, drive slowly to the nearest service station and adjust it to the recommended pressure. Always reinstall the valve cap after checking or adjusting tire pressure. If the cap is not replaced, air may leak from the tire. If you lose a valve cap, buy another and install it as soon as possible. After changing tires, secure the flat tire and return the jack and tools to their proper storage locations.

NOTICE

Check the tire pressure as soon as possible after installing a spare tire. Adjust it to the recommended pressure.

CAUTION

Your vehicle has metric threads on the studs and wheel nuts. Make certain during tire changing that the same nuts that were removed are reinstalled. If you have to replace your wheel nuts make sure they have metric threads to avoid damaging the studs and ensure the wheel is properly secured to the hub. Consult an authorized HYUNDAI dealer for assistance.

WARNING

Wheel studs

If the studs are damaged, they may lose their ability to retain the wheel. This could lead to the loss of the wheel and a collision resulting in serious injuries.

If any of the equipment such as the jack, wheel nuts, studs, or other equipment is damaged or in poor condition, do not attempt to change the tire and call for assistance.

Use of compact spare tires

Compact spare tires are designed for emergency use only. Drive carefully on the compact spare tire and always follow the safety precautions.

WARNING

To prevent compact spare tire failure and loss of control possibly resulting in an accident:

  • Use the compact spare tire only in an emergency.
  • NEVER operate your vehicle over 50 mph (80 km/h).
  • Do not exceed the vehicle’s maximum load rating or the load carrying capacity shown on the sidewall of the compact spare tire.
  • Do not use the compact spare tire continuously. Repair or replace the original tire as soon as possible to avoid failure of the compact spare tire.

When driving with the compact spare tire mounted to your vehicle:

  • Check the tire pressure after installing the compact spare tire. The compact spare tire should be inflated to 60 psi (420 kPa).
  • Do not take this vehicle through an automatic car wash while the compact spare tire is installed.
  • Do not use the compact spare tire on any other vehicle because this tire has been designed especially for your vehicle.
  • The compact spare tire’s tread life is shorter than a regular tire. Inspect your compact spare tire regularly and replace worn compact spare tires with the same size and design, mounted on the same wheel.
  • Do not use more than one compact spare tire at a time.
  • Do not tow a trailer while the compact spare tire is installed.

Information

When the original tire and wheel are repaired and reinstalled on the vehicle, the wheel nuts torque must be set correctly. The correct wheel nuts tightening torque is 79~94 lbf.ft (11~13 kgf.m).

NOTICE

To prevent damaging the compact spare tire and your vehicle:

  • Drive slowly enough for the road conditions to avoid all hazards, such as a potholes or debris.
  • Avoid driving over obstacles. The compact spare tire diameter is smaller than the diameter of a conventional tire and reduces the ground clearance approximately 1 inch (25 mm).
  • Do not use tire chains on the compact spare tire. Because of the smaller size, a tire chain will not fit properly.
  • Do not use the compact spare tire on any other wheels, nor should standard tires, snow tires, wheel covers or trim rings be used with the compact spare wheel.
