Attention!

In M-vehicles, discs for increasing the coefficient of friction (1) may be installed between the brake disc and wheel rim on the front axle (also refer to Electronic Parts Catalogue)!

This disc for increasing the coefficient of friction (1) must be installed again or, in the event of damage, be replaced!!

Centre disc for increasing the coefficient of friction (1) using special tool 83 30 2 459 458 (3 centering pins) on brake disc and install!


Attention!

The wheel is balanced electronically.

Observe safety information on raising the vehicle.

Adhere to the instructions on initializing the Run Flat Indicator (RPA).

During the installation of all four wheels (e.g. when changing from summer to winter wheels), the tyre pressure must be checked!

Observe the notes on tolerance compensation for the tyre pressure control!

To avoid tyre damage, advise the customer to check the tyre pressure on a regular basis (see Owner's Handbook)!


Observe the following procedure to prevent clamping errors and imbalance:
  • Loosen the wheel studs.
  • Wheel positioned with valve facing down.
  • If several wheels are simultaneously removed, mark installation position of wheels on tyres (e.g. with a piece of chalk).
  • Mark out wheel to wheel hub.
  • Mark out lockable wheel stud in relation to wheel.
  • Loosen wheel bolts. Remove wheel.
Attention!

Some of the rim styling must be positioned in a certain direction!

The assignment of left and right, or front and rear must be carried out using the Electronic Parts Catalogue!

Observe direction-of-rotation arrow on the wheel rim.


Attention!

Contact surfaces between:

  • brake disc and wheel rim,
  • brake disc and wheel hub,

must be clean and free from grease.


Remove dirt, grease residues and corrosion from contact surface with a drill and special tool 81 25 2 344 011 .Attention!

Clean wheel bolts and check threads for damage, renew if necessary.

Renew corroded wheel bolts.

Attention!

Do not apply oil to wheel studs.


Attention!
Under no circumstances use pneumatic or electric screwdrivers to screw in and tighten the wheel bolts.

Attention!

The wheel rim must rest uniformly against the brake disc.

In the case of non-original BMW wheel studs/rims it may be necessary to retighten the wheel studs on account of setting properties (refer to manufacturer's documents).


Tightening specifications:
  1. Screw in wheel bolts and evenly tighten crosswise by hand in order to centre the wheel rim.
  2. Tighten down wheel studs in crosswise sequence with a calibrated torque wrench to prescribed tightening torque 36 10 1AZ.
  3. Check all the wheel bolts in the same order or retighten to the prescribed tightening torque again.
