1.6.2. A small-sized spare wheel

Aуди-Купе And Quattro

The small-sized spare wheel is located on a luggage carrier left-hand side. It is closed and kept by means of the plastic screw with накатанной a head.

To remove a casing from a spare wheel, undertake edge of a casing behind a wheel one hand and for an aperture in the centre of a casing other hand. In regular intervals remove a casing two hands.

Models Aуди of 1986-1989:

For cars without ABS and without a drive on all wheels: As this wheel is less in the sizes, than a standard wheel, the backlash between road and the car bottom decreases approximately for 30 mm. Try not to go through acting subjects and do not call in on an automatic sink of cars at the established spare wheel not to receive damages.

The prevention

Bolts of fastening of a spare wheel always should be twisted reliably. In no event it is impossible to store a spare wheel in a luggage carrier not fixed. It can lead to traumas of passengers in case of failure.

Periodically check pressure in the tyre of a spare wheel (it should equal 60 psi or to 4.2 bars) that it was ready to use.

At use of a small-sized spare wheel pay attention to following moments:

 – After installation of a small-sized spare wheel, it is necessary to check up pressure in the tyre and if it is necessary, to pump up the tyre to pressure in 60 psi/4.2 a bar;
 – As much as possible the safe load is noted on a lateral face of the tyre of a spare wheel and should not be exceeded;
 – It is necessary to return a spare wheel into place in a luggage carrier right after repair or replacement of a standard wheel;
 – As the small-sized spare wheel has been developed specially for cars Audi, it should not be used on other cars. Similarly, small-sized spare wheels of other cars should not be established on your car;
 – The small-sized tyre cannot be put on a standard wheel, and also standard tyres, winter tyres, caps of wheels or finishing rings should not be put on a small-sized spare wheel. If you try to make similar attempt, you can damage these or other elements of the car.

The prevention

The small-sized spare wheel is intended only for time use about what corresponding marks in its lateral surface are made.

Long operation of a small-sized spare wheel can lead to its exit out of operation, to loss of controllability by the car and is possible to traumas for passengers.

Do not establish winter chains on a small-sized spare wheel. As the tyre of a spare wheel of the smaller size, than usual, a chain will not keep reliably and can damage the car. You can lose a chain, together with driving.

In case at you will lower a forward wheel in conditions when application of winter chains is necessary, remove the intact back wheel on the same party of the car and establish on its place a small-sized spare wheel. Then remove the damaged forward wheel, remove chains and establish them on the removed back wheel before establishing it to the place of the forward. Check up and adjust pressure in tyres.
The prevention

Do not go with a speed more, than 80 km/h at the established small-sized spare wheel. Also, try to avoid fast dispersal, sharp braking and abrupt turns not to run away the car.

Never use two or more small-sized spare wheels simultaneously.
