1.6.1. Jack and tools


The jack and tool kit fasten by means of a bolt to fastening on the left side of a luggage carrier.

Before cleaning a jack in a luggage carrier, its handle should be lowered up to the end down.
The face wrench, screw-driver, key of 10 x 13 mm, ear for towage and a plastic pin for replacement of wheels fasten to a jack by means of a rubber strip.


On the Audi-Kupe and Quattro models the jack and a tool kit fasten in a luggage carrier by means of a nut lamb. Always check, that these tools were reliably fixed and did not dangle, differently they can put a trauma to passengers in salon.

Use a jack only for wheel replacement. Never use a jack for lifting of other cars or other cargoes as it can lead to accident and traumas.

Never use a jack as a support at work under the car. If the jack casually to be displaced, you can get a serious trauma.

Do not lift the car, having established a jack under a bumper as in this case, you can seriously damage it. Also, the jack can jump out that will lead to receiving a corporal trauma.

Do not establish the car on shlakobetonny blocks, bricks or other props which can crumble under big weight.

Do not start the engine when the car costs on a jack.

At work under the car, always use the reliable support made specially for this purpose.

Face wrench

The face wrench is the tool serving for two purposes. The six-sided nest on the short end of a key approaches under bolts of fastening of wheels. The six-sided nest on the long end of a key approaches to spark plugs.

For convenience of removal and an inhaling of spark plugs, insert the screw-driver handle into a six-sided opening on the short end of a key.

The six-sided nest in the handle of a screw-driver is provided specially for simplification of removal and installation of bolts of fastening of wheels. Not to get injury, always clean a demountable edge when using the handle of a screw-driver for this purpose.


The handle of a screw-driver should not be used for untwisting or an inhaling of bolts of fastening of wheels.

The plastic pin is used for simplification of replacement of wheels. When you insert a pin into an opening for a bolt, it guarantees that openings in a wheel will coincide with carving openings in a wheel nave.

After installation, it is possible to stretch a towing cable through a towing ear.

At towage, observe towage rules.

Twirl a towing ear in an anchor nest and tighten a hand.
