Toyota Prius Owners Manual
Raising your vehicle
5. After making sure no one is inthe vehicle, raise it high enoughso that the spare tire can beinstalled.
Remember you will need more groundclearance when putting on the sparetire than when removing the flat tire.
To raise the vehicle, insert the jackhandle into the jack (it is a loose fit)and turn it clockwise. As the jacktouches the vehicle and begins to lift,double−check that it is properly positioned.
Never get under the vehicle whenthe vehicle is supported by thejack alone.
