Jacking instructions

The jack is provided for emergency tire changing only.

To prevent the jack from rattling while the vehicle is in motion, store it properly.

Follow jacking instructions to reduce the possibility of personal injury.

WARNING - Changing tires

Never attempt vehicle repairs in the traffic lanes of a public road or highway.

  • Always move the vehicle completely off the road and onto the shoulder before trying to change a tire. The jack should be used on a firm level ground. If you cannot find a firm, level place off the road, call a towing service company for assistance.
  • Be sure to use the correct front and rear jacking positions on the vehicle; never use the bumpers or any other part of the vehicle for jacking support.

WARNING - Jack

Do not place any portion of your body under a vehicle that is only supported by a jack since the vehicle can easily roll off the jack. Use vehicle support stands.

  • Do not allow anyone to remain in the vehicle while it is on the jack.
  • Make sure any children present are in a secure place away from the road and from the vehicle to be raised with the jack.

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.
