Today, on our 2005 BMW X3 were going to do a test fit of part number PW2029. The first thing well do, well go ahead and take the cables and lay them out on top of the tire. Now there are hooks on the side of the tire that go around the cables. We want make sure that those hooks are facing towards the outside or you want to see the end of the hooks facing to the outside. Well go ahead and drape them over the tire. Center them up as best we can and well tuck the end with the latch the forward side of the tire.
Well roll forward a little bit, so we have the latch at the back side of the tire and we have access to the other half of the chain. Well start off with the inside part of the chain. Well run our latch up as far we can on the hooks. Well pull the end of the side cable on the inside first with the knobs to meet the keyhole latch. Well take the keyhole latch and run it up on the cable as far as we can until it meets one of the knobs.
Latch it in place. And then, well repeat the same process on the cable going to the outside of the tire. The chain is still centered on the tire. And then, well close the lever lock. Well pull the lever up 180 degrees towards the top of the wheel.
On the outside cable, well do the same thing to the inside. Make sure our latch is completely opened up. Again, well run the keyhole on the cable to meet the knobs as far as we can go. And then, well go ahead and move the lever back down to take up the tension, and well run it over the cable and let it catch. Then, well use the plastic clips to help take care of the extra cable thats left over.
Thats how it looks on the tire.With that, thatll finish it for our test fit of part number PW2029 on our 2005 BMW X3.
