Volvo XC90: Wheels and tires / Wheel bolts

The wheel bolts hold the wheel in place on the wheel hub.

Only use rims that have been tested and approved by Volvo and are included in Volvo's original product range.

Use a torque wrench to check that the wheel bolts are tightened correctly.

Do not grease the wheel bolt threads.

WARNING

The wheel bolts may need to be tightened again several days after a wheel change. Temperature fluctuations and vibrations can cause them to loosen slightly.

CAUTION

The wheel bolts should be tightened to 140 Nm (103 ft. lbs.). Over-tightening or under-tightening could damage the threaded joints.

Locking wheel bolt kit*

To loosen or tighten the locking wheel bolts, turn the wrench in the locking bolt until it fully engages in the code grooves. When removing a wheel, always start with the locking wheel bolts. When mounting a wheel, end with the locking bolt.

CAUTION

Make sure you have a solid connection between bolt and wheel bolt key when loosening/tightening the wheel bolts. Applying force at an angle could damage the slots in the wheel bolts and the wheel bolt key and make it impossible to install or remove the wheel.

When the wheel bolt key is not being used, stow it in its designated location in the foam block under the cargo compartment floor. This is important to remember so that the tool is available if the vehicle is taken to a workshop. If you lose the key, contact your Volvo retailer.
