Did anyone else get their shiny new Jacking Tips Card from FCA?

It came in the mail today. Seems like they decided that they didn't explain how to change tires and use the winch, so they wrote an addendum to keep with your owners manual, and a slick little card to put with your jack!

I've only had the van for 2 years now, so I'm impressed with how helpful this is coming in the mail now. ;)

Oh darn when I used the jack I probably did it wrong, uh you do put it under the bumper, right?

Yes!

But did you know there was a little window on the winch?

You are supposed to "rotate the wrench handle until the winch mechanism window turns yellow and the operator hears 3 clicks from the device to show the wheel is properly stowed under the vehicle."

No yellow dot? Or black dot? see your dealer!

ps. If you have aluminum wheels, there's two more pages of info on how to store your spare!

pps. I suppose I should look under there some day....

Got mine today. Would have been nice to have last time I rotated the tires but better late than never

I got my first flat in years today, mine's only a month and a half old. That card was not much of a help, kinda like Ikea instructions. There is a plastic nut in inside the spare tire wheel that holds the flange of the winch in place. It takes a lot of turns on the jack to lift the van high enough to get the wheel on.
