    Has anyone changed a tire on hey model X themselves? I have a spare tire for road trip emergencies and I am interested in where to place a scissor jack on the undercarriage to lift the car. Any thoughts? Thanks……..Dave

    The jack points, and the procedure (very important to put it in jack mode due to the self leveling suspension) are described in the owners manual. :)

    As was said above never forget too lock the air suspension, I made that mistake with my Touareg, almost dropped the damn thing on me while changing to off road tires, after the vehicle was jacked up and the wheel was already off it decided to level out, lucky for me I quickly pushed one of the spare Tires underneath the axel and it stopped.
