Flat tire

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

This vehicle is equipped with the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). It monitors tire pressure of all tires except the spare. When the low tire pressure warning light is lit and the CHECK TIRE PRESSURE warning (if so equipped) appears on the vehicle information display, one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. If the vehicle is being driven with low tire pressure, the TPMS will activate and warn you of it by the low tire pressure warning light. This system will activate only when the vehicle is driven at speeds above 16 MPH (25 km/h). For more details, see “Warning/indicator lights and audible reminders” in the “2. Instruments and controls” section and “Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)” in the “5. Starting and driving” section.

- If the low tire pressure warning light illuminates while driving, avoid

- If the low tire pressure warning light illuminates while driving, avoid sudden steering maneuvers or abrupt braking, reduce vehicle speed, pull off the road to a safe location and stop the vehicle as soon as possible.

Driving with under-inflated tires may permanently damage the tires and increase the likelihood of tire failure. Serious vehicle damage could occur and may lead to an accident and could result in serious personal injury. Check the tire pressure for all four tires. Adjust the tire pressure to the recommended COLD tire pressure shown on the Tire and Loading Information label to turn the low tire pressure warning light OFF. If you have a flat tire, replace it with a spare tire as soon as possible.

- When a spare tire is mounted or a wheel is replaced, the TPMS will not function and the low tire pressure warning light will flash for approximately 1 minute. The light will remain on after 1 minute. Contact your NISSAN dealer as soon as possible for tire replacement and/ or system resetting.

- Replacing tires with those not originally specified by NISSAN could affect the proper operation of the TPMS.

- Do not inject any tire liquid or aerosol tire sealant into the tires, as this may cause a malfunction of the tire pressure sensors.

Changing a flat tire

If you have a flat tire, follow the instructions below.

Stopping the vehicle

1. Safely move the vehicle off the road and away from traffic.

2. Turn on the hazard warning flashers.

3. Park on a level surface and apply the parking brake. Move the selector lever to the P (Park) position.

4. Turn off the engine.

5. Raise the hood to warn other traffic, and to signal professional road assistance personnel that you need assistance.

6. Have all passengers get out of the vehicle and stand in a safe place, away from traffic and clear of the vehicle.

- Make sure the parking brake is securely applied and the transmission is

- Make sure the parking brake is securely applied and the transmission is shifted into the P (Park) position.

- Never change tires when the vehicle is on a slope, ice or slippery areas.

This is hazardous.

- Never change tires if oncoming traffic is close to your vehicle. Wait for professional road assistance.

Blocking wheels

Place suitable blocks 1 at both the front and back of the wheel diagonally

Place suitable blocks 1 at both the front and back of the wheel diagonally opposite the flat tire to prevent the vehicle from moving when it is jacked up.

Be sure to block the wheel as the vehicle may move and result in personal

Removing wheel cover (if so equipped)

Never use your hands to remove the wheel cover. This may cause personal injury.

Never use your hands to remove the wheel cover. This may cause personal injury.

To remove the wheel cover, use the jack rod 1 as illustrated.

Apply cloth 2 between the wheel and jack rod to prevent damaging the wheel and wheel cover.

Jacking up the vehicle and removing the damaged tire

- Never get under the vehicle while it is supported only by the jack. If it

- Never get under the vehicle while it is supported only by the jack. If it is necessary to work under the vehicle, support it with safety stands.

- Use only the jack provided with your vehicle to lift the vehicle. Do not use the jack provided with your vehicle on other vehicles. The jack is designed for lifting only your vehicle during a tire change.

- Use the correct jack-up points.

Never use any other part of the vehicle for jack support.

- Never jack up the vehicle more than necessary.

- Never use blocks on or under the jack.

- Do not start or run the engine while vehicle is on the jack, as it may cause the vehicle to move.

- Do not allow passengers to stay in the vehicle while it is on the jack.

Carefully read the caution label attached to the jack body and the following instructions.

Jack-up point
Jack-up point

1. Place the jack directly under the jack-up point as illustrated so the top of the jack contacts the vehicle at the jack-up point.

Align the jack head between the two notches in the front or the rear as shown.

Also fit the groove of the jack head between the notches as shown.

The jack should be used on level firm ground.

2. Loosen each wheel nut one or two turns by turning counterclockwise with the

2. Loosen each wheel nut one or two turns by turning counterclockwise with the wheel nut wrench. Do not remove the wheel nuts until the tire is off the ground. 3. To lift the vehicle, securely hold the jack lever and rod with both hands as shown above.

Carefully raise the vehicle until the tire clears the ground. Remove the wheel nuts, and then remove the tire.

Installing the spare tire

The spare tire is designed for emergency use. (See specific instructions under

The spare tire is designed for emergency use. (See specific instructions under the heading “Wheels and tires” in the “8.

Maintenance and do-it-yourself” section.)

1. Clean any mud or dirt from the surface between the wheel and hub.

2. Carefully put the spare tire on and tighten the wheel nuts finger tight. Check that all the wheel nuts contact the wheel surface horizontally.

3. With the wheel nut wrench, tighten wheel nuts alternately and evenly in the sequence as illustrated (1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 ), more than 2 times, until they are tight.

4. Lower the vehicle slowly until the tire touches the ground. Then, with the wheel nut wrench, tighten the wheel nuts securely in the sequence as illustrated. Lower the vehicle completely.

- Incorrect wheel nuts or improperly tightened wheel nuts can cause the wheel

- Incorrect wheel nuts or improperly tightened wheel nuts can cause the wheel to become loose or come off.

This could cause an accident.

- Do not use oil or grease on the wheel studs or nuts. This could cause the nuts to become loose.

- Retighten the wheel nuts when the vehicle has been driven for 600 miles (1,000 km) (also in cases of a flat tire, etc.).

- As soon as possible, tighten the wheel nuts to the specified torque with a torque wrench.

Wheel nut tightening torque:
80 ft-lb (108 N·m)

The wheel nuts must be kept tightened to specification at all times. It is recommended that wheel nuts be tightened to specifications at each lubrication interval.

- Adjust tire pressure to the COLD pressure.

COLD pressure:
After the vehicle has been parked for three hours or more or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km).

COLD tire pressures are shown on the Tire and Loading Information label affixed to the driver side center pillar.

Stowing the damaged tire and the tools

1. Securely store the damaged tire, jack and tools in the storage area.

2. Replace the luggage floor box.

3. Replace the lids on the luggage side boxes.

4. Close the luggage floor board.

5. Replace the cargo cover (if so equipped).

6. Close the lift gate.

- Always make sure that the spare tire and jacking equipment are properly

- Always make sure that the spare tire and jacking equipment are properly secured after use. Such items can become dangerous projectiles in an accident or sudden stop.

- The T-type spare tire and small size spare tire are designed for emergency use. See specific instructions under the heading “Wheels and tires” in the “8. Maintenance and do-it-yourself” section.
