What Should I Do When Remove 4 wheels ? C5 X7

Post by sword1st »

Hi. I will paint my wheels. They will lift the car with car jack and put it on vehicle stand. Their vehicle stands doesn't have height adjustment. If i rise the car to the top point height sensor will triggered when it's on vehicle stand. Should i remove the battery and act like conventional suspension ? I don't wanna let them do anything they want. I will guide them with the info i take here. Thanks!

(This is a referance vehicle stand. They can't adjust the height with theirs.)

Read this - it explains the dangers of a burst tank when lifting the car where the wheels will be hanging unsupported:

There is also a link to some warning labels - but in English.

Any time you are going to disconnect the battery or remove it - follow this procedure to avoid any electrical problems:
