Important information about wheel nuts

Factory-fitted rims and wheel nuts are spe-
cially matched during construction. There-
fore, if different rims are fitted, the correct
wheel nuts with the right length and heads
must be used. This ensures that wheels are
fitted securely and that the brake system
functions correctly.

In certain circumstances, you should not even
use wheel nuts from vehicles of the same
model.

In wheels with full hubcaps, the anti-theft
locking bolt must be threaded onto positions

›››

, taking the tyre valve’s po-

sition as reference 

1

. Otherwise it will not be

possible to mount the hubcap.

WARNING

If the wheel nuts are not properly tight-
ened, they could come loose while driving

and cause an accident, serious injury and
loss of vehicle control.

Use only wheel nuts which correspond to

the rim in question.

Never use different wheel nuts.

Wheel nuts and threads should be clean,

free of oil and grease, and it should be pos-
sible to screw them easily.

To loosen and tighten wheel nuts, only

use the wheel wrench that came with the
car from the factory.

The wheel nuts should only be loosened

slightly (about one turn) before raising the
vehicle with the jack. Risk of accident!

Never apply grease or oil to wheel nuts or

to the wheel hub threads. Even if the bolts
have been tightened to the prescribed tor-
que, they could come loose while driving.

Never loosen the screwed joints of wheel

rims with bolted ring trims.

If wheel nuts are tightened below the

prescribed torque, the bolts and rims could
come loose while driving. If tightening tor-
que is too high, the wheel nuts or threads
can be damaged.

Raise the vehicle

Fig. 38 

Cross member: positioning the jack on

the vehicle.

Rest the jack (vehicles tools) on firm

ground. If necessary use a large, strong
board or similar support. If the surface is slip-
pery (for example tiles) place the jack on a
rubber mat or similar to prevent it from slip-
ping

Emergencies

Find the support point on the strut (sunken

area) closest to the wheel to be changed

››› 

Fig. 37

.

Turn the jack crank handle, located below

the strut support point, to raise it until the
tab 

1

 

››› 

Fig. 38

 is below the housing provi-

ded.

Align the jack so that tab 

1

 “grips” onto

the housing provided on the strut and the mo-
bile base 

2

 is resting on the ground. The

base plate 

2

 should fall vertically with re-

spect to the support point 

1

.

Continue turning the jack until the wheel is

slightly lifted off the ground.

WARNING

The factory-supplied jack is only designed
for changing wheels on this model. On no
account attempt to use it for lifting heavier
vehicles or other loads. Risk of injury.

Make sure the jack remains stable. If the

surface is slippery or soft, the jack could
slip or sink, respectively, with the conse-
quent risk of causing injuries.

Lift the vehicle using only the jack sup-

plied from the factory. Other jacks, even
those approved for other SEAT models
could slip, with the consequent risk of in-
jury.

Place the jack only at the support points

provided on the strut and align it. Other-
wise, the jack could slip because it does

not have sufficient grip on the vehicle: risk
of injury!

You should never place a body limb such

as an arm or leg under a raised vehicle that
is solely supported by the jack.

If you have to work underneath the vehi-

cle, you must use suitable stands addition-
ally to support the vehicle, there is a risk of
accident!.

Never raise the vehicle if it is tilting to one

side or the engine is running.

Never start the engine when the vehicle is

raised. The vehicle may come loose from
the jack due to the engine vibrations.

CAUTION

The vehicle must not be raised on the
crossbar. Place the jack only at the support
points provided on the strut and align it.
Otherwise, the vehicle may be damaged.

Removing and installing a wheel

Change the wheel after loosening the wheel
nuts and raising the vehicle with the jack.

When removing/fitting the wheel, the rim may
hit and damage the brake disc. For this rea-
son, please take care and get a second per-
son to assist you.

Taking off the wheel

Unscrew the wheel nuts using the box

spanner and place them on a clean surface.

Take off the wheel.

Putting on the spare wheel

Check the direction of rotation of the tyre

››› 

page 47

.

Place the spare wheel or temporary spare

wheel into position.

Screw on the wheel nuts in position and

tighten them loosely with a box spanner.

To tighten the anti-theft locking wheel nuts

use the corresponding adaptor.

Carefully lower the vehicle using the jack.

Use the wheel spanner to tighten all of the

wheel nuts clockwise. Tighten the bolts in di-
agonal pairs (not in a circle).

Put the caps, trim or full hubcap back on.

The wheel nuts should be clean and turn
easily. Before fitting the spare wheel, inspect
the wheel condition and hub mounting surfa-
ces. These surfaces must be clean before fit-
ting the wheel.

Tightening torque of the wheel nuts

The recommended tightening torque for
wheel nuts for steel and alloy wheels is

120 Nm

. After changing a wheel, have the

46

Self-help

tightening torque checked immediately with a
torque wrench that is working perfectly.

Before checking

 tightening torque, have any

rusty wheel nuts that are difficult to screw re-
placed and clean the wheel hub threads.

Never apply grease or oil to wheel nuts or to
the wheel hub threads. Even if the bolts have
been tightened to the prescribed torque, they
could come loose while driving.

Tyres with directional tread pattern

Tyres with directional tread pattern have
been designed to operate best when rotating
in only one direction. An arrow on the tyre
sidewall indicates the direction of rotation on
tyres with directional tread. Always observe
the indicated direction of rotation in order to
guarantee optimum grip and help avoid
aquaplaning, excessive noise and wear.

If the tyre is mounted in the opposite direction
of rotation, drive with extreme caution, as the
tyre is no longer being used correctly. This is
of particular importance when the road sur-
face is wet. Change the tyre as soon as pos-
sible or remount it with the correct direction
of rotation.

Works after changing a wheel

Alloy wheels:

 replace the wheel bolt caps.

Plate wheels:

 replace the wheel hubcap .

Return all tools to their proper storing loca-

tion.

If the replaced wheel does not fit in the

spare wheel housing, store it safely in the lug-
gage compartment 

››› 

page 128

.

Check the tyre pressure of the newly moun-

ted tyre as soon as possible.

In vehicles fitted with a tyre pressure indica-

tor, adjust the pressure and store it in memory

››› 

page 295

.

Have the tightening torque of the wheel

nuts checked as soon as possible with a tor-
que wrench

blades

Fig. 41 

Changing the rear wiper blade

The windscreen wiper blades are supplied as
standard with a layer of graphite. This layer is
responsible for ensuring that the wipe is silent.
If the graphite layer is damaged, the noise of
the water as it is wiped across the windscreen
will be louder.

Check the condition of the wiper blades reg-
ularly. 

If the wipers scrape across the

glass

, they should be changed if they are

damaged, or cleaned if they are dirty 

››› 

.

If this does not produce the desired results,
the setting angle of the windscreen wiper
arms might be incorrect. They should be
checked by a specialised workshop and cor-
rected if necessary.

Damaged windscreen wiper blades should
be replaced immediately. These are availa-
ble from qualified workshops.

Tow start and towing

Introduction

Tow-starting

 means starting the engine of

the vehicle while another pulls it.

Towing

 means one vehicle pulling another

that is not roadworthy.

Always consider the legal provisions relating
to tow-starting and towing.

For technical reasons, towing a vehicle
with a discharged battery is not allowed.
The jump start should be used instead

››› 

page 49

.

If the vehicle comes with the Keyless Access
system, towing is only allowed with the igni-
tion on!

The vehicle battery drains if the vehicle is
towed with the engine switched off and the
ignition connected. Depending on the battery
charge status, the drop in voltage may be so
large, even after just a few minutes, that no
electrical device in the vehicle may work e.g.
the hazard warning lights. In vehicles with the

Keyless Access system, the steering wheel
could lock 

››› 

.

WARNING

A vehicle with no power should never be
towed.

When towing, never remove the ignition

key or disconnect the ignition with the start
button. Otherwise, the electronic lock of
the steering column could suddenly be-
come blocked and it would be impossible
to steer the vehicle. This could cause an
accident, serious injury and loss of control
of the vehicle.

If during towing the vehicle runs out of

power, stop towing immediately and re-
quest the assistance of specialist person-
nel.

WARNING

Vehicle handling and braking capacity
change considerably during towing. Please
observe the following instructions to mini-
mise the risk of serious accidents and in-
jury:

As the driver of the vehicle being towed:

You should depress the brake much
harder as the brake servo does not op-
erate. Pay the utmost attention to avoid
crashing into the towing vehicle.

More strength is required at the steer-
ing wheel as the power steering does

not operate when the engine is switch-
ed off.

As the driver of the towing vehicle:

Accelerate with particular care and
caution.

Avoid sudden braking and manoeuvres.

Brake earlier than usual and more
smoothly.

CAUTION

To avoid damaging the vehicle, for exam-

ple the paint, remove and replace the lid
and towing eye carefully.

Unburnt fuel could enter the catalytic

converter and damage it during towing.

Instructions for tow-starting

Vehicle's should not generally be tow-
started. The jump start should be used in-
stead

 

››› 

page 49

.

For technical reasons, towing the following
vehicles is 

not

 allowed:

Vehicles with an automatic gearbox.

If the vehicle battery is discharged, be-

cause in vehicles with the Keyless Access
locking and ignition system the steering re-
mains locked and the electronic parking
brake cannot be deactivated nor can the

»

51

Emergencies

electronic lock of the steering column be re-
leased if they are activated.

If the battery is flat, it is possible that the

engine control units may not operate correct-
ly.

However, if the vehicle must absolutely be
tow-started (in the case of manual gear-
boxes):

Engage the 2nd or 3rd gear.

Keep the clutch pressed down.

Switch on the ignition and the hazard warn-

ing lights of both vehicles.

Once both vehicles are moving, release the

clutch.

Once the engine starts, press the clutch

and disengage the gear to avoid colliding
with the towing vehicle.

CAUTION

When tow-starting, unburnt fuel could

enter the catalytic converter and damage
it.

Do not tow a vehicle for more than 50 m

in attempt to start it. There is risk of dam-
age to the catalytic converter.

Towing instructions

Towing requires some expertise and experi-
ence, especially when using a tow rope. Both
drivers should be familiar with the difficulties
involved in towing. For this reason, inexper-
ienced drivers should abstain from towing.

During towing, it should be ensured that no
impermissible tractive forces or shocks are
generated. When towing on an unpaved
road, there is always a risk of overloading and
damaging the anchorage points.

During towing, the towing vehicle can signal
the change of direction even with the hazard
warning lights turned on. To do so, at the
same time, the turn signal lever must be oper-
ated with ignition switched on. Meanwhile, the
hazard warning lights will go off. When the
turn signal lever is returned to the rest posi-
tion, the hazard warning lights will be auto-
matically reactivated.

Notes for the driver of the towed vehicle

Leave the ignition on, so that the steering is

not blocked, and the electronic parking brake
may be deactivated and the turn signals and
wash/wipe operated.

More strength is required at the steering

wheel as the power steering does not oper-
ate when the engine is switched off.

You should depress the brake much harder

as the brake servo does not operate. Avoid
hitting the towing vehicle.

Bear in mind the information and instruc-

tions in the manual of the vehicle to be towed.

Notes for the driver of the towing vehicle

Accelerate with particular care and cau-

tion. Avoid sharp manoeuvres.

Brake earlier than usual and smoothly.

Bear in mind the information and instruc-

tions in the manual of the towed vehicle.

Tow rope or tow bar

It is safer for the vehicle to be towed using a
tow bar, avoiding damage to the vehicle. A
tow rope should only be used if a tow bar is
not available.

A tow rope should be slightly elastic to avoid
damage to both vehicles. It is advisable to
use a tow rope made of synthetic fibre or sim-
ilarly elastic material.

Only attach the tow rope or the tow bar to
the towing eyes provided or a towing bracket.

If the vehicle has a 

factory-fitted towing de-

vice,

 towing with a tow bar is 

only

 permitted

if it has been specially designed to be instal-
led on a tow hitch 

››› 

page 256

.

52

Self-help

When the vehicle has to be towed:

Check whether the vehicle may be towed

››› 

page 53, Cases where towing the vehi-

cle is not permitted

.

The vehicle can be towed using a tow bar or
tow rope in the normal way, with all four
wheels on the road; it can also be towed with
either the front or rear wheels lifted off the
road.

Switch the ignition on.

Put the gearbox lever in neutral or the se-

lector lever in the 

N

 

››› 

page 196

 position.

Do not allow the vehicle to be towed at

speeds of over 50 km/h (30 mph).

The vehicle must not be towed further than

50 km (30 miles).

If a breakdown lorry is used, vehicles with

automatic transmission are only allowed to
be towed with the front wheels suspended.

Cases where towing the vehicle is not per-
mitted

If, due to a fault, the gearbox is out of lubri-

cant.

If the battery is flat and the steering cannot

be unlocked as a result, the electronic steer-
ing lock and electronic parking brake cannot
be disengaged.

If a distance above 50 km needs to be trav-

elled.

When, for example, after an accident, the

smooth rotation of the wheels or the steering
operation cannot be guaranteed.

When the vehicle is to tow another vehicle:

Observe legal requirements.

Keep in mind the instructions in the manual

on towing vehicles.

CAUTION

If there is no oil in the gearbox or no lubri-
cant in the automatic transmission the car
may only be towed with the driven wheels
lifted clear of the road, or transported on a
special car transporter or trailer.

Note

The vehicle can only be towed if the steer-
ing lock electronic gearbox lock is deacti-
vated. If the vehicle has no power supply or
there is an electric system fault, the engine
must be started using jump leads to deacti-
vate the steering column electronic gear-
box lock.

Fuses

Introduction

In general, a fuse can be assigned to various
electrical components. Likewise, an electrical
component can be protected by several
fuses.

Only replace fuses when the cause of the
problem has been solved. If a newly inserted
fuse blows after a short time, you must have
the electrical system checked by a special-

WARNING

The high voltages in the electrical system
can give serious electrical shocks, causing
burns and even death!

Never touch the electrical wiring of the

ignition system.

Take care not to cause short circuits in

the electrical system.

WARNING

Using unsuitable fuses, repairing fuses or
bridging a current circuit without fuses can
cause a fire and serious injury.

Never use a fuse with a higher value. Only

replace fuses with a fuse of the same am-

perage (same colour and markings) and
size.

Never replace a fuse by a metal strip, sta-

ple or similar.

CAUTION

To prevent damage to the vehicle's elec-

tric system, before replacing a fuse always
turn off the ignition, the lights and all elec-
trical elements and remove the key from
the ignition.

Protect the fuse boxes when open to pre-

vent the entry of dust or humidity as they
can damage the electrical system.

Note

One component may have more than one

fuse.

Several components may run on a single

fuse.

In the vehicle, there are more fuses than

those indicated in this chapter.

Note

In the vehicle, there are more fuses than

those indicated in this chapter. These

should only be changed by a specialised
workshop.

Positions not containing a fuse do not ap-

pear in the following tables.

Some of the equipment listed in the ta-

bles below pertain only to certain versions
of the model or are optional extras.

Please note that the above lists, while

correct at the time of printing, are subject
to change.

Changing bulbs

Introduction

Changing bulbs requires a certain degree of
practical skill. If you are unsure, SEAT recom-
mends that you consult a technical service or
request assistance from a specialist. In gen-
eral a specialist is needed if, in addition to the
bulbs, other vehicle components require re-
moval.

Always use identical bulbs with the same
designation. The name can be found on the
base of the bulb holder.

Depending on how equipped the vehicle is,
there are different sets of headlights and tail
lights:

ECOLED (full-LED) main headlights

58

Fuses and bulbs

High (full-LED) main headlights

Rear bulb light

LED rear light

Full-LED headlight system

Full-LED headlights handle all light functions
(daylight, side light, turn signal, dipped beam
and route light) with light emitting diodes
(LEDs) as a light source.

Full-LED headlights are designed to last the
lifetime of the car and light bulbs cannot be
replaced. In case of headlight failure, go to an
authorised workshop to have it replaced.

Bulbs (12 V)

Depending on the level of equipment fitted in
the vehicle, LEDs may be used for part or all
of the interior and/or exterior lighting. LEDs
have an estimated life that exceeds that of
the vehicle. If an LED light fails, go to an au-
thorised workshop for its replacement.

WARNING

Bulbs are highly sensitive to pressure. The

glass can break when you touch the bulb,
causing injury.

When changing the bulbs, take care not

to injure yourself on parts with sharp
edges.

CAUTION

Remove the ignition key before working

on the electric system. Otherwise, a short
circuit could occur.

Switch off the lights and the parking light

before changing a bulb.

Take good care to avoid damaging any

components.

For the sake of the environment

Please ask your specialist retailer how to
dispose of used bulbs in the proper manner.

Note

Depending on weather conditions (cold

or wet), the front lights, the fog lights, the
tail lights and the turn signals may be tem-
porarily misted. This has no influence on
the useful life of the lighting system. By
switching on the lights, the area through
which the beam of light is projected will
quickly be demisted. However, the edges
may continue to be misted.

Please check at regular intervals that all

lighting (especially the exterior lighting) on
your vehicle is functioning properly. This is
not only in the interest of your own safety,
but also that of all other road users.
