WARNING
Jack must be positioned directly under axle to prevent slippage.
Direct all personnel to stay clear of vehicle when vehicle is
supported in the air. Failure to do so could result in serious
injury and damage to equipment.
To prevent shifting of trailer, floor jack should be used only on a hard
level surface. Failure to follow this warning could result in serious
injury and damage to equipment.
Spare tire weighs 205 lbs. (93 kg) and may fall if procedures are
not followed carefully. Injury to personnel or damage to equipment
may occur.
NOTE
Wheel replacement in the form of tire-changing is also an
Operator task. If floor jacks and jack stands are not available,
use BII 20-ton jack.
There are twelve tire and wheel assemblies and they are removed and
installed the same way. This procedure covers one wheel assembly.
Outer wheel assembly (5) must be removed to replace inner wheel assembly (4).
