How To Install 2022 Mercedes C Class Wheel Spacers?
How to install 2022 Mercedes C Class wheel spacers? After reading this article, you can easily and safely install wheel spacers on your car. Mercedes-Benz’s entry-level sports sedan, the C Class, has been completely redesigned for the 2022 model year. The 2022 C Class inherits the manufacturing elements and technology of the S-Class and insists on affordable price and luxurious interior, which doesn’t fall behind its rivals Audi A4, BMW 3-Series, and Genesis G70 in the market competition. So how do install 2022 Mercedes C Class wheel spacers to retrofit and upgrade the vehicle? Let’s get started now!
Step 1: Stop The Car In Right Place
Before you start installing the 2022 Mercedes C Class wheel spacers, you need to park the vehicle in a level and spacious place. Park, turn off, pull the handbrake, and make sure your surroundings are safe.
Step 2: Jack Up
While the vehicle is still on the ground, use a wrench to loosen the wheel bolts one by one, but not completely (this is so that you don’t have to put on the brakes and then loosen the bolts after the vehicle is jacked up). Then use the jack to lift the vehicle (refer to the vehicle manual for the position of the jack). Jack up the vehicle until the tires are about 3 cm off the ground, and place a jack stand on the same side of the jack to ensure safe.
Step 3: Remove The Wheel Bolts
After the vehicle is stably jacked up, use a wrench to remove all loose wheel bolts. Note that when removing the last wheel bolts of each wheel, support the tire to avoid injury caused by the tire falling.
Step 4: Put The Wheel On The Ground
Remove the tire from the axle hub, with the tire outside facing up and laying flat on the ground.
Step 5: Check For Rust And Clean The Mounting Pad
Check the axle hub and wheel hub of the vehicle for rust. If there is slight rust, you need to use a rust remover, sandpaper, and other tools to clean up the rust to ensure that the surfaces of the axle hub and wheel hub are smooth and flat; If there is serious rust, please replace the auto parts to ensure the safety of the vehicle drive.
Step 6: Check The Wheel Size Matching
Put the BONOSS 2022 Mercedes C Class wheel spacer into the wheel hub first, and check whether the spacer matches the wheel size.
Step 7: Put The Wheel Spacer On
Align the BONOSS 2022 Mercedes C Class wheel spacer with the axle hub and place it on the mounting pad. If you feel a slight damping feeling, please don’t worry, this is a phenomenon of high-precision matching (because the accuracy of this product is as high as 0.02mm, if it cannot be installed, please confirm again whether the wheel hub and the axle hub are clean or not).
Step 8: Put The Tire Back With Extended Bolts
Lift the tire that was set aside and place it on the axle hub where the spacer has been installed. Use the extended wheel bolts that come with the spacer to pass through the tire and the spacer’s bolt holes in sequence to secure the tire to the vehicle.
Step 9: Crosswise Screw The Wheel Bolts
Use a torque wrench to tighten the wheel bolts in a crosswise manner. Refer to the vehicle manual for the required wheel tightening torque.
Step 10: Put The Vehicle Back On The Ground And Steer To Check
Always remember to remove the jack stand first, then slowly release the jack to lower the vehicle. After the vehicle has completely returned to the ground, start the vehicle, turn the steering wheel left and right on the spot, and check whether the tires rub against the wheel arch, the fender, or other parts when turning. If there is a problem, it needs to be adjusted in time to avoid affecting driving safety.
Step 11: Final Check
After completing the above steps, drive the vehicle slowly back and forth a few times to ensure that the wheel turns a few rounds, and stop and turn off the vehicle. Use a torque wrench to re-tighten all wheel bolts to the required wheel tightening torque to ensure firm installation.
If you’ve done all these steps perfectly, then you’re ready to drive your newly modified Mercedes C Class out the door.
