Storage Roof rack system Loading information Roof rack ■ Heavy objects in the load compartment should be evenly distributed and placed as far forward as possible. Ensure the backrests are securely engaged. If objects can be stacked, the heavier objects should be placed at the bottom. With rear seats in the folded position, objects must not be stacked higher than the seat backrests. ■ Secure objects with lashing straps attached to lashing eyes 3 70. ■ Secure loose objects in the load compartment, e.g. with a luggage floor net, to prevent sliding. ■ When transporting objects in the load compartment, the backrests of the rear seats must not be angled forward. ■ Do not allow the load to protrude above the upper edge of the backrests. For safety reasons and to avoid damage to the roof, the vehicle approved roof rack system is recommended. For further information contact a workshop. Fasten the roof rack to the roof rails following the instructions that accompany the system, ensuring that the roof load is evenly distributed over the side or cross rails. Loads must not be placed on the roof surface. To prevent damage or loss, check frequently that roof loads are securely fastened. Driving with a roof load affects the vehicle centre of gravity; drive carefully in crosswinds and do not drive at high speeds. Remove the roof rack when not in use. 71 ■ Do not place any objects on the load compartment cover or the instrument panel, and do not cover the sensor on top of the instrument panel. ■ The load must not obstruct the operation of the pedals, electrical parking brake and gear selector, or hinder the freedom of movement of the driver. Do not place any unsecured objects in the interior. ■ Do not drive with an open load compartment. 9 Warning Always make sure that the load in the vehicle is securely stowed. Otherwise objects can be thrown around inside the vehicle and cause personal injury or damage to the load or vehicle. ■ The payload is the difference between the permitted gross vehicle weight (see identification plate 3 201) and the EC kerb weight. 72 Storage To calculate the EC kerb weight, enter the data for your vehicle in the Weights table at the front of this manual. The EC kerb weight includes weights for the driver (68 kg), luggage (7 kg) and all fluids (tank 90 % full). Optional equipment and accessories increase the kerb weight. ■ Driving with a roof load increases the sensitivity of the vehicle to cross-winds and has a detrimental effect on vehicle handling due to the vehicle's higher centre of gravity. Distribute the load evenly and secure it properly with retaining straps. Adjust the tyre pressure and vehicle speed according to the load conditions. Check and retighten the straps frequently. Do not drive faster than 75 mph. The permissible roof load is 100 kg. The roof load is the combined weight of the roof rack and the load.

Stop-start system 3 125. Starting the vehicle at low temperatures In extremely cold temperatures, i.e. below -20 °С, it may be necessary to crank the engine for up to 30 seconds for it to start. Turn key to position START and hold until engine starts. Start attempts should not last longer than 30 seconds. If engine does not start, wait 10 seconds before repeating starting procedure. Ensure the engine oil is of the correct viscosity, the correct fuel is used, vehicle services are performed regularly and the battery is sufficiently charged. Turbo engine warm-up Upon start-up, engine available torque may be limited for a short time, especially when the engine temperature is cold. The limitation is to allow the lubrication system to fully protect the engine. Overrun cut-off The fuel supply is automatically cutoff during overrun, i.e. when the vehicle is driven with a gear engaged but accelerator is released. 125 Stop-start system The stop-start system helps to save fuel and to reduce the exhaust emissions. When conditions allow, it switches off the engine as soon as the vehicle is at a low speed or at a standstill, e.g. at a traffic light or in a traffic jam. It starts the engine automatically as soon as the clutch is depressed. A vehicle battery sensor ensures that an Autostop is only performed if the vehicle battery is sufficiently charged for a restart. Activation The stop-start system is available as soon as the engine is started, the vehicle starts-off and the conditions as stated below in this section are fulfilled. 126 Driving and operating Deactivation Deactivate the stop-start system manually by pressing the eco button. The deactivation is indicated when the LED in the button extinguishes. Autostop If the vehicle is at a low speed or at a standstill, activate an Autostop as follows: ■ Depress the clutch pedal ■ set the lever to neutral ■ release the clutch pedal The engine will be switched off while the ignition stays on. An Autostop is indicated by the needle at the AUTOSTOP position in the tachometer. During an Autostop, the heating, power steering and brake performance will be maintained. Air conditioning system may or may not inhibit the stop-start system according to the cooling performance. Caution The steering assist can be reduced during an Autostop. Conditions for an Autostop The stop-start system checks if each of the following conditions is fulfilled. ■ The stop-start system is not manually deactivated ■ the bonnet is fully closed ■ the driver's door is closed or the driver's seat belt is fastened ■ the vehicle battery is sufficiently charged and in good condition ■ the engine is warmed up ■ the engine coolant temperature is not too high or low ■ the engine exhaust temperature is not too high, e.g. after driving with high engine load ■ the ambient temperature is not too low ■ the defrosting function is not activated ■ the climate control system does not inhibit an engine stop ■ the brake vacuum is sufficient Driving and operating ■ the self-cleaning function of the diesel particle filter is not active ■ the vehicle has moved since the last Autostop Otherwise an Autostop will be inhibited. Certain settings of the climate control system may inhibit an Autostop. See Climate control chapter for more details 3 117. Immediately after motorway driving an Autostop may be inhibited. New vehicle running-in 3 124. Vehicle battery discharge protection To ensure reliable engine restarts, several vehicle battery discharge protection features are implemented as part of the stop-start system. Restart of the engine by the driver Depress the clutch pedal to restart the engine. The engine start is indicated by the needle at the idle speed position in the tachometer. If the selector lever is shifted out of neutral before depressing the clutch first, control indicator - illuminates. Control indicator - 3 90. Restart of the engine by the stop-start system The selector lever must be in neutral to enable an automatic restart. If one of the following conditions occurs during an Autostop, the engine will be restarted automatically by the stop-start system. ■ The stop-start system is manually deactivated ■ the bonnet is opened ■ the driver's seat belt is unfastened and the driver's door is opened ■ the engine temperature is too low ■ the charging level of the vehicle battery is below a defined level ■ the brake vacuum is not sufficient ■ the vehicle is driven at least at walking speed ■ the defrosting function is activated 127 ■ the climate control system requests an engine start ■ the air conditioning is manually switched on If an electrical accessory, e.g. a portable CD player, is connected to the power outlet, a brief power drop during restart might be noticeable. Parking 9 Warning ■ Do not park the vehicle on an easily ignitable surface. The high temperature of the exhaust system could ignite the surface. ■ Always apply the electrical parking brake. Pull switch m. The electric parking brake is applied when control indicator m illuminates 3 86.

Turn the steering wheel until the steering wheel lock is felt to engage. For vehicles with automatic transmission, depress foot brake and shift into P before pushing key into ignition switch and removing. ■ If the vehicle is on a level surface or uphill slope, engage first gear or move the selector lever to P before switching off the ignition. On an uphill slope, turn the front wheels away from the kerb. If the vehicle is on a downhill slope, engage reverse gear or move the selector lever to P before switching off the ignition. Turn the front wheels towards the kerb. ■ Close windows and sunroof. ■ Lock the vehicle with button p on the radio remote control 3 21. Activate the anti-theft alarm system 3 25. Engine exhaust 9 Danger Engine exhaust gases contain poisonous carbon monoxide, which is colourless and odourless and could be fatal if inhaled. If exhaust gases enter the interior of the vehicle, open the windows. Have the cause of the fault rectified by a workshop. Avoid driving with an open load compartment, otherwise exhaust gases could enter the vehicle. Malfunction indicator light 3 85. Diesel particle filter The diesel particle filter system filters harmful soot particles out of the exhaust gases. The system includes a self-cleaning function that runs automatically during driving without any notification. Driving and operating The filter is cleaned by periodically burning off the soot particles at high temperature. This process takes place automatically under set driving conditions and may take more than 15 minutes. Autostop is not available and fuel consumption may be higher during this period. The emission of smells and smoke during this process is normal. If cleaning of the filter is required and previous driving conditions did not enable automatic cleaning, it will be indicated by control indicator % 3 88. % illuminates, accompanied by a warning chime, when diesel particle filter is full. Start cleaning process as soon as possible. % flashes when diesel particle filter has reached the maximum filling level. Start cleaning process immediately to avoid damage to the engine. A warning chime sounds every 3 minutes until the cleaning process is complete. Cleaning process Under certain driving conditions, e.g. short distances, the system cannot clean itself automatically. To activate the cleaning process, continue driving, keeping engine speed above 2000 revolutions per minute. Shift down if necessary. Diesel particle filter cleaning is then started. If control indicator Z illuminates additionally in the instrument cluster when the engine is running, there may be a fault in the diesel particle 129 filter 3 85. Cleaning is not possible, seek the assistance of a workshop immediately. Caution If the cleaning process is interrupted, there is a risk of provoking severe engine damage. Cleaning takes place quickest at high engine speeds and loads. Do not switch off the engine until the cleaning process is complete. This is indicated by the extinguished control indicator %. Catalytic converter The catalytic converter reduces the amount of harmful substances in the exhaust gases. 130 Driving and operating Caution Fuel grades other than those listed on pages 3 144, 3 205 could damage the catalytic converter or electronic components. Unburnt petrol will overheat and damage the catalytic converter. Therefore avoid excessive use of the starter, running the fuel tank dry and starting the engine by pushing or towing. In the event of misfiring, uneven engine running, a reduction in engine performance or other unusual problems, have the cause of the fault rectified by a workshop as soon as possible. In an emergency, driving can be continued for a short period, keeping vehicle speed and engine speed low. Malfunction indicator light 3 85. Automatic transmission D The automatic transmission permits automatic gearshifting (automatic mode) or manual gearshifting (manual mode). Selector lever = drive position (automatic mode) 1-6 = selected gear in manual mode Transmission display The mode or selected gear is shown in the transmission display. P = park position R = reverse gear N = neutral P = park position, wheels are locked, engage only when the vehicle is stationary and the electrical parking brake is applied R = reverse gear, engage only when vehicle is stationary N = neutral or idle D = drive position (automatic mode with all gears) Driving and operating The selector lever is locked in position P and N and can only be moved when the ignition is on and the foot brake is applied. To engage P or R, push the release button. Never shift to P or R while the vehicle is moving. The engine can only be started with lever in position P or N. Depress foot brake or apply electrical parking brake before starting. Do not accelerate while engaging a gear. Never depress the accelerator pedal and brake pedal at the same time. When a gear is engaged, the vehicle slowly begins to creep when the foot brake is released. Engine braking To utilise the engine braking effect, select a lower gear in good time when driving downhill - see Manual mode. Use of the engine braking effect, as opposed to the use of the foot brake when driving downhill, can extend the life of the brakes. Rocking the vehicle Rocking the vehicle is only permissible if the vehicle is stuck in water, ice, sand, mud, snow or a dip. Move the selector lever between D and R in a repeat pattern while applying light pressure to the accelerator pedal when the vehicle is in gear. Do not race the engine and avoid sudden acceleration. If the vehicle cannot be released after rocking the vehicle several times, your vehicle may need to be towed 3 192. Parking Apply the electrical parking brake and engage P. The ignition key can only be removed when the selector lever is in position P. 131 Manual mode Move selector lever out of position D towards the left and then forwards or backwards. < = Shift to a higher gear. ] = Shift to a lower gear. Tip selector lever in the appropriate direction. It then returns to the centre position. Gearshifting in manual mode can be achieved whilst accelerating. If the engine speed is too low, the 132 Driving and operating transmission will automatically shift to a lower gear, even in manual mode, to prevent the engine from stalling. If a higher gear is selected when vehicle speed is too low, or a lower gear when vehicle speed is too high, the shift is not executed. In manual mode, no automatic shifting to a higher gear takes place at high engine revolutions. Gears can be skipped by moving the selector lever repeatedly at short intervals. After stopping, 1st gear is automatically selected. When starting on slippery surfaces, tip selector lever forwards to engage 2nd gear. To move back to position D, move selector lever back to the right. Electronic driving programmes ■ Following a cold start, the operating temperature programme increases engine speed to quickly bring the catalytic converter to the required temperature. Kickdown In both automatic and manual modes, if the accelerator pedal is pressed down completely the transmission shifts to a lower gear depending on engine speed. Full engine power is available for acceleration. Fuel economy mode Activate fuel economy mode to allow the transmission to adapt gearshift patterns, improving the vehicle's fuel economy. Activation In automatic mode, press button s; control indicator s illuminates in the instrument cluster 3 90. The settings of certain electronic systems are adapted to reduce fuel consumption: ■ The engine reacts less quickly to the accelerator pedal. ■ Automatic upshift points occur sooner and downshift points occur later. ■ The transmission locks itself to the engine at cruising speeds, to improve efficiency and increase power and torque. ■ The fuel supply is automatically cutoff more quickly during vehicle deceleration. Overrun cut-off 3 125. Do not use fuel economy mode whilst towing, e.g. a trailer. Driving and operating Deactivation Fuel economy mode is switched off by pressing button s again; control indicator s extinguishes in the instrument cluster. Fault In the event of a fault in the automatic transmission, control indicator Z illuminates in the instrument cluster 3 85. Automatic shifting may be much harsher than normal or, in the case of a serious fault, cancelled altogether. Have the cause of the fault remedied by a workshop. If control indicator g illuminates in the instrument cluster when the engine is running, this may indicate a fault in the transmission electronics 3 85. The electronics switch to the emergency running programme, fuel consumption may increase and the driveability of the vehicle may be affected. Seek the assistance of a workshop. Interruption of power supply The clutch is not disengaged if the vehicle battery is discharged and a gear has been selected. The vehicle cannot move. The selector lever cannot be moved out of position P or N. If the battery is discharged, start the vehicle using jump leads 3 190. If the battery is not the cause of the fault, release the selector lever: 1. Switch off ignition and remove the key. 2. Depress and hold foot brake. 133 3. Remove trim cover. 4. Press and hold shift lock release button. 5. Shift to neutral (N). 6. Replace trim cover. 7. Start engine and shift to chosen gear. Have the cause of the power supply interruption remedied by a workshop. 134 Driving and operating Manual transmission Caution It is not advisable to drive with the hand resting on the selector lever. To engage reverse, with the vehicle stationary, wait 3 seconds after depressing clutch pedal and engage the gear. If the gear does not engage, set the lever to neutral, release the clutch pedal and depress again; then repeat gear selection. Do not slip the clutch unnecessarily. When operating, depress the clutch pedal completely. Do not use the pedal as a foot rest. Drive systems All-wheel drive All-wheel drive is an active-ondemand system that engages automatically, with no action required by the driver. Depending on the driving environment, the vehicle switches between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, to give the vehicle more traction and stability when necessary. If the front wheels begin to slip, the rear wheels will automatically begin to drive the vehicle as required. More torque is transferred to the wheels that have the most traction, so the vehicle has optimum grip at all times. There may be a slight engagement noise during hard use. As well as enabling the vehicle to be driven off-road, this system also enables the vehicle to be driven on normal roads without incurring excessive tyre and drivetrain wear or causing poor control. Driving and operating Ensure tyres (including the spare) are inflated to the correct pressure 3 210 and are suitable for the prevailing road conditions. For optimum system performance, the vehicle's tyres should not have varying degrees of wear. If control indicator B flashes in the instrument cluster during driving, Allwheel drive is temporarily disabled. If B flashes continuously, there is a fault in the system; seek the assistance of a workshop. All-wheel drive control indicator B 3 86. On-road driving The increased traction of All-wheel drive vehicles offers greater driving control in adverse road conditions, particularly heavy snow and ice. However, All-wheel drive vehicles are not "skid-proof" and do not decrease stopping distances. All-wheel drive vehicles have a higher centre of gravity than conventional vehicles. Always approach curves at an appropriate driving speed. Do not attempt to go as fast through turns as you might in a conventional vehicle. Strong crosswinds can affect the normal steering of the vehicle. Drive slower under strong crosswind conditions. Off-road driving ■ Avoid protruding objects (such as rocks or tree stumps) that may damage the underbody and tyres of your vehicle. ■ Test the brakes after operating in mud, to clear excess mud from the braking surfaces. ■ Grip the steering wheel when travelling over rough terrain. Terrain conditions can cause rapid and unexpected movement in the steering. The ground clearance, ramp angle, angle of approach and departure and wading depth need to be considered, especially in hilly conditions and when wading, to prevent the vehicle becoming stuck and possibly damaged. Vehicle dimensions 3 207. 135 Towing the vehicle 3 192. Driving through water Do not exceed the maximum wading depth 3 207. Check the depth of water: choose the lowest entry and departure angles before entering. Maintain a steady engine speed, to help prevent water from entering the exhaust system, but do not exceed 3 mph, to avoid splashing the water. Drive with the flow wherever possible, not against it. If you have to drive against the flow, try to drive at an angle to it, so that the leading corner of the vehicle will help deflect water from the engine compartment. Avoid splashing the water - if the ignition system becomes wet, the engine may stall. Avoid water entering the air intake system. If water enters the air intake system, engine seizure with severe costly damage may result. Test the brakes after leaving the water - wet brakes are less effective than dry ones. Perform the service 136 Driving and operating operations for wading , involving checks for water contamination, at the earliest opportunity. Service checks after wading Check for the ingress of water into the following: ■ Brake fluid reservoir ■ Air cleaner element ■ Engine ■ Transmission ■ Axles ■ Interior of vehicle Renew any lubricating oil or hydraulic fluid that has a milky appearance, indicating contamination with water. Cleaning Clean the vehicle thoroughly and as soon as possible after driving offroad. Do not let mud remain dry on any part of the vehicle as it becomes abrasive and can damage paint, glass, seals, bearings and brake components. If left to build up, mud can seriously affect the airflow through and over mechanical components and cause localised overheating and failure of parts, especially in the engine compartment. Ensure the radiator core and the area between the radiator and intercooler/ oil cooler (where installed) is cleaned, to maintain proper cooling air flow. Check the radiator and cooler cores for blockage (sand, silt etc.). Check the tyre treads. Clean and check the mechanical parts of the vehicle, particularly the following areas: ■ Driveshafts, including sealing bellows ■ Front brake calipers, pads and discs ■ Front suspension ■ Clutch fork sealing bellows ■ Rear brake calipers, pads and discs ■ Rear suspension ■ Fuel tank and underguard ■ Breathers, axles and fuel tank ■ Load sensing valve ■ Transfer box and underguard ■ Engine oil pan and underguard Observe the following: ■ Do not spray high-pressure water directly at the vehicle seals ■ The wheels must be removed to clean all mud and stones from the brake calipers and to check brake pad wear ■ The areas on the upper side of the underguards must be cleared of stones, to prevent damage to the engine oil pan and the fuel tank Driving and operating Brakes The brake system comprises two independent brake circuits. If a brake circuit fails, the vehicle can still be braked using the other brake circuit. However, braking effect is achieved only when the brake pedal is depressed firmly. Considerably more force is needed for this. The braking distance is extended. Seek the assistance of a workshop before continuing your journey. When the engine is not running, the support of the brake servo unit disappears once the brake pedal has been depressed once or twice. Braking effect is not reduced, but braking requires significantly greater force. It is especially important to bear this in mind when being towed. Control indicator R 3 85. Antilock brake system Antilock brake system (ABS) prevents the wheels from locking. ABS starts to regulate brake pressure as soon as a wheel shows a tendency to lock. The vehicle remains steerable, even during hard braking. ABS control is made apparent through a pulse in the brake pedal and the noise of the regulation process. For optimum braking, keep the brake pedal fully depressed throughout the braking process, despite the fact that the pedal is pulsating. Do not reduce the pressure on the pedal. After starting off, the system performs a self-test which may be audible. Control indicator u 3 86. Fault 9 Warning If there is a fault in the ABS, the wheels may be liable to lock due to braking that is heavier than normal. The advantages of ABS are no longer available. During 137 hard braking, the vehicle can no longer be steered and may swerve. You can continue driving, provided you drive with care and anticipation. Have the cause of the fault remedied by a workshop. Parking brake Electrical parking brake 138 Driving and operating Applying when vehicle is stationary Pull switch m, the electrical parking brake operates automatically with adequate force. For maximum force, e.g. parking with a trailer or on inclines, pull switch m twice. The electrical parking brake can always be activated, even if the ignition is off. Do not operate electrical parking brake system too often without engine running as this will discharge the battery. Before leaving the vehicle, check the electrical parking brake status. Control indicator m 3 86. Releasing Switch on ignition. Keep foot brake depressed and then push switch m. If the foot brake is not depressed when attempting to release electrical parking brake, a warning chime will sound and control indicator illuminates in the instrument cluster 3 90. Drive away function With the engine running, selecting a forward gear (manual transmission) or engaging D (automatic transmission) and then depressing the accelerator pedal automatically releases the electrical parking brake. This is not possible when the switch m is pulled at the same time. This function also helps driving away on inclines. Aggressive drive away may reduce life time of wear parts. Dynamic braking when vehicle is moving When the vehicle is moving and the switch m is kept pulled, a warning chime will sound and the electrical parking brake system will decelerate the vehicle, but will not apply statically. As soon as the switch m is released, dynamic braking will be stopped. Fault Failure mode of electrical parking brake is indicated by control indicator j 3 86. In the event of a fault, to apply electrical parking brake: pull and hold the switch m for a few seconds. If control indicator m illuminates, electrical parking brake has been applied successfully. To release electrical parking brake: push and hold the switch m for a few seconds. If control indicator m extinguishes, electrical parking brake has been released successfully. If control indicator m flashes: electrical parking brake is not fully applied or released. When m is continuously flashing, with ignition switched on depress brake pedal, release electrical parking brake and retry applying. If m continues to flash, do not drive the vehicle. If necessary, place wedge blocks or equivalent in front of and behind wheels to prevent vehicle Driving and operating movement. Seek the assistance of a workshop to have the cause of the fault remedied. Ride control systems Brake assist Electronic Stability Control (ESC) improves driving stability when necessary, regardless of the type of road surface or tyre grip. It also prevents the drive wheels from spinning. As soon as the vehicle starts to swerve (understeer/oversteer), engine output is reduced and the wheels are braked individually. This considerably improves the driving stability of the vehicle on slippery road surfaces. ESC is operational as soon as control indicators b and t extinguish in the instrument cluster after switching on the ignition. When ESC is active b flashes 3 87. If the brake pedal is depressed quickly and forcefully, maximum brake force is automatically applied (full braking). Maintain steady pressure on the brake pedal for as long as full braking is required. Maximum brake force is automatically reduced when the brake pedal is released. Hill start assist The system helps prevent unintended movement when driving away on inclines. When releasing the foot brake after stopping on an incline, the brakes remain on for a further 2 seconds. The brakes release automatically as soon as the vehicle begins to accelerate. Electronic Stability Control 139 9 Warning Do not let this special safety feature tempt you into taking risks when driving. Adapt speed to the road conditions. Deactivation With ESC active, if wheels are slipping on wet, snowy or icy roads, engine speed may not increase when accelerator pedal is depressed. The vehicle may not move. 140 Driving and operating Switch off ESC function, to allow engine rpm to increase, by pressing button t briefly. Control indicator t illuminates in the instrument cluster. ESC is reactivated by pressing button t again. The control indicator extinguishes. Control indicator t 3 88. Hydraulic brake assist When the ESC function comes into action and recognises any emergency situation requiring hard braking, it automatically delivers increased braking pressure to the wheels. Active rollover protection If the vehicle moves in an unstable manner, this function helps the vehicle maintain normal stability. Trailer stability assist If the system detects snaking movements, engine power is reduced and the vehicle/trailer combination is selectively braked until the snaking ceases. While system is working keep steering wheel as still as possible. Descent control system Activation The Descent control system (DCS) allows the vehicle to travel at a low speed without depressing the foot brake. The vehicle will automatically decelerate to a low speed and remain at that speed when the system is activated. Some noise or vibration from the brake system may be apparent when the system is active. Caution Use only when descending steep grades while driving off-road. Do not use when driving on normal road surfaces. Unnecessary usage of the DCS function, such as while driving on normal roads, may damage the brake system and the ESC function. At speeds below approx. 30 mph, press button u. The green control indicator u flashes in the instrument cluster, to show DCS is in operation. DCS will not activate at speeds above 30 mph, even if the button is pressed. Deactivation Press button u again. The green control indicator u extinguishes. Depressing the foot brake or accelerator will also cause the system to be deactivated. Driving and operating Fault The yellow control indicator u flashes to indicate that the system is not ready for conditions to operate, due to the high temperature (approx. 350 - 400 °C) of friction material, through severe or repeated braking. It will extinguish when the temperature drops below 350 °C. The yellow control indicator u illuminates when there is a malfunction in the system, due to the extremely high temperature (over 400 °C) of friction material, through severe or repeated braking. It will extinguish when the temperature drops below 350 °C. These temperatures may differ according to vehicle conditions or outside conditions. Flashing or illumination of the yellow control indicator u reminds the driver that the friction material needs to cool down: drive the vehicle without braking as much as possible. If the control indicator does not extinguish, have the cause of the fault remedied by a workshop. DSC control indicators u 3 87. Automatic level control The rear level of the vehicle is automatically adjusted to the load conditions while driving. Suspension and ground clearance are increased, which improves driving conditions. The automatic level control is activated after the vehicle has been driven for some distance, depending on the vehicle load and the road conditions. Do not use full payload in the event of a fault. Have the cause of the fault remedied by a workshop. Headlight range adjustment 3 107. 141 Driver assistance systems 9 Warning Driver assistance systems are developed to support the driver and not to replace the driver's attention. The driver accepts full responsibility when driving the vehicle. When using driver assistance systems, always take care regarding the current traffic situation. Cruise control The cruise control can store and maintain speeds above 25 mph. Deviations from the stored speeds may occur when driving uphill or downhill. For safety reasons the cruise control cannot be activated until the foot brake has been operated once. 142 Driving and operating stored and maintained. Control indicator m illuminates green. Accelerator pedal can be released. Vehicle speed can be increased by depressing the accelerator pedal. When the accelerator pedal is released, the previously stored speed is resumed. Increase speed Do not use the cruise control if it is not advisable to maintain a constant speed. With automatic transmission, only activate cruise control in automatic mode. Control indicator m 3 91. Activation Press the e button; control indicator m illuminates yellow in the instrument cluster. Accelerate to the desired speed, press the - SET button and release it. The current speed is With cruise control active, press and hold the + RES button or tap the + RES button repeatedly: speed increases continuously or in small increments. Alternatively accelerate to the desired speed and store by pressing the - SET button. Reduce speed With cruise control active, press and hold the - SET button or tap the - SET button repeatedly: speed decreases continuously or in small increments. Deactivation Press the e button; control indicator m extinguishes and the vehicle slowly decelerates. Automatic deactivation: ■ vehicle speed below approx. 25 mph, ■ the brake pedal is depressed, ■ the clutch pedal is depressed, ■ selector lever in N, ■ the Electronic Stability Control is operating. Resume stored speed Press the + RES button at a speed above 25 mph. The stored speed will be obtained. Deleting the stored speed The stored speed will be deleted by pressing the e button or switching off the ignition. Driving and operating Parking assist Activation 143 30 cm, the signal is continuous. The acoustic signal may differ depending on the type of object detected. Deactivation The parking assist system makes parking easier by measuring the distance between the vehicle and obstacles to the front and rear, and giving acoustic signals. It is the driver, however, who bears full responsibility for the parking manoeuvre. The system consists of four ultrasonic parking sensors in both the front and rear bumpers. Control indicator r 3 87. With the ignition on, the system must be activated manually. Press button r on the instrument panel. The LED in the button will illuminate and will activate when a forward gear or reverse gear is engaged and the electrical parking brake is released. An obstacle is indicated by an acoustic signal. The interval between the sounds becomes shorter as the vehicle gets closer to the obstacle. When the distance is less than To deactivate, press the button again and the LED in the button will extinguish. The control indicator r in the instrument cluster will illuminate until the vehicle speed exceeds 18 mph. The system is deactivated automatically when the vehicle speed is above 5 mph or when selector lever is in neutral (automatic transmission in N or P). If the b button is pressed again, the LED in the button will extinguish and the system will be reactivated as soon as a forward gear or reverse gear is engaged and the electrical parking brake is released. Fault In the event of a fault in the system, control indicator r illuminates in the instrument cluster. 144 Driving and operating If the acoustic signal sounds 3 times continuously when there are no obstacles near the front or rear bumper, there is a fault in the system. Have the cause of the fault remedied by a workshop. Important hints for using the parking assist system 9 Warning Under certain circumstances, various reflective surfaces on objects or clothing as well as external noise sources may cause the system to fail to detect obstacles. Special attention has to be paid to low obstacles which can damage the lower part of the bumper. Caution Performance of the system can be reduced when sensors are covered, e.g. by ice or snow. Performance of the parking assist system can be reduced due to heavy loading. Special conditions apply if there are taller vehicles in the vicinity (e.g. off-road vehicles, mini vans, vans). Object identification and correct distance indication in the upper part of these vehicles cannot be guaranteed. Objects with a very small reflection cross-section, e.g. objects of narrow size or soft materials, may not be detected by the system. Parking assist systems do not detect objects outside the detection range. Fuel Fuel for petrol engines Only use unleaded fuel that complies with European standard EN 228 or E DIN 51626-1 or equivalent. Your engine is capable of running with E10 fuel that fulfills these standards. E10 fuel contains up to 10 % bioethanol. Use fuel with the recommended octane rating 3 205. Use of fuel with too low an octane rating can reduce engine power and torque and slightly increases fuel consumption. Caution Do not use fuel or fuel additives that contain metallic compounds such as manganese-based additives. This may cause engine damage. Driving and operating Caution Use of fuel that does not comply to EN 228 or E DIN 51626-1 or equivalent can lead to deposits or engine damage and may affect your warranty. Caution Use of fuel with too low an octane rating could lead to uncontrolled combustion and engine damage. Notice Use unleaded Premium fuel only for the following countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Moldova. Fuel for ethanol adapted engines (E85) If access to E85 is limited then fuel with a different proportion of ethanol or normal RON 95 can be used for refuelling. The engine's control management system is adjusted automatically according to the amount of ethanol in the fuel. E85 fuel must fulfil the CWA 15293 or SS 155480 standard. When the temperature is about -10 °C or lower a greater proportion of petrol should be used. E85 in combination with low temperatures could lead to the car being more difficult to start. A slightly higher proportion of petrol improves the cold start properties considerably. During the engine's warm-up phase (below +50 °C) engine torque is limited when driving with a proportion of ethanol. Ethanol contains less energy per litre than petrol, which is why fuel consumption increases when driving on E85 compared with petrol. A consequence of this is that a tank of E85 covers fewer miles than a tank of petrol. 145 Caution Certain additives in petrol could, in combination with ethanol, cause reduced driveability. For this reason, refuel with a full tank of petrol every 6,000 miles. Use up the majority of this before refuelling the vehicle again. Fuel for diesel engines Only use diesel fuel that complies with EN 590. In countries outside the European Union use Euro-Diesel fuel with a sulphur concentration below 50 ppm. Caution Use of fuel that does not comply with EN 590 or similar can lead to engine power loss, increased wear or engine damage and loss of warranty. 146 Driving and operating Do not use marine diesel oils, heating oils, Aquazole and similar dieselwater emulsions. Diesel fuels must not be diluted with fuels for petrol engines. Refuelling 9 Danger Before refuelling, switch off engine and any external heaters with combustion chambers. Switch off any mobile phones. Follow the operating and safety instructions of the filling station when refuelling. Caution In case of misfuelling, do not switch on ignition. Fuel filler flap is located at left rear side of vehicle. The fuel filler flap can only be opened if the vehicle is unlocked 3 21. Release the fuel filler flap by pushing the flap. Caution Wipe off any overflowing fuel immediately. After refuelling, replace the fuel filler cap and turn it clockwise until you hear several clicks. Ensure the cap is screwed in completely, otherwise control indicator Z may illuminate in the instrument cluster 3 85. Close fuel filler flap. 9 Danger Fuel is flammable and explosive. No smoking. No naked flames or sparks. If you can smell fuel in your vehicle, have the cause of this remedied immediately by a workshop. The fuel filler cap can be retained in the holder on the inside of the fuel filler flap. When refuelling, fully insert the pump nozzle and switch it on. After the automatic cut-off, the fuel tank can be topped up with a maximum two doses of fuel. Fuel filler cap To unlock fuel filler cap: turn it anticlockwise. If hissing occurs, wait until it stops before completely unscrewing the cap. Only a genuine fuel filler cap provides full functionality. Diesel-engined vehicles have special fuel filler caps. Driving and operating Fuel consumption - CO2Emissions The fuel consumption (combined) of the model Vauxhall Antara is within a range of 25 to 45 mpg. The CO2 emission (combined) is within a range of 255 to 167 g/km. For the values specific for your vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of Conformity provided with your vehicle or other national registration documents. General information The official fuel consumption and specific CO2 emission figures quoted relate to the EU base model with standard equipment. Fuel consumption data and CO2 emission data are determined according to regulation R (EC) No. 715/2007 (in the latest applicable version), taking into consideration the vehicle weight in running order, as specified by the regulation. The figures are provided only for the purpose of comparison between different vehicle variants and must not be taken as a guarantee for the actual fuel consumption of a particular vehicle. Additional equipment may result in slightly higher results than the stated consumption and CO2 figures. Furthermore, fuel consumption is dependent on personal driving style as well as road and traffic conditions. 147 Trailer hitch General information The coupling ball bar is kept in a bag, fastened with a strap and is stowed below the floor cover in the load compartment. Only use towing equipment that has been approved for your vehicle. Entrust retrofitting of towing equipment to a workshop. It may be necessary to make changes that affect the cooling system, heat shields or other equipment. Control indicator á illuminates in the instrument cluster when a trailer is connected to the vehicle 3 91. Driving characteristics and towing tips In the case of trailers with brakes, attach the break-away stopping cable to the eye - not to the coupling ball bar. 148 Driving and operating If no eye is available, loop cable around coupling ball bar. Ensure cable is crossed under the vertical coupling socket to ensure the trailer nose cannot drop to the ground if it becomes separated from the trailer hitch. Do not allow the cable to drag along the ground and always allow enough slack to permit full turning. Follow the instructions supplied with the towing equipment. Before attaching a trailer, lubricate the coupling ball. However, do not do so if a stabiliser, which acts on the coupling ball, is being used to reduce snaking movements. For trailers with low driving stability, the use of a friction-type stabiliser is strongly recommended. Do not drive faster than 50 mph, even in countries where higher speeds are permitted. When driving uphill, do not drive faster than 20 mph in 1st gear, or 30 mph in 2nd gear. If the trailer starts snaking, drive more slowly, do not attempt to correct the steering and brake sharply if necessary. When driving downhill, drive in the same gear as if driving uphill and drive at a similar speed. Adjust tyre pressure to the value specified for full load 3 210. Trailer towing Trailer loads The permissible trailer loads are vehicle-dependent and enginedependent maximum values which must not be exceeded. The actual trailer load is the difference between the actual gross weight of the trailer and the actual coupling socket load with the trailer coupled. When the trailer load is being checked, therefore, only the trailer wheels - and not the jockey wheel must be standing on the weighing apparatus. The permissible trailer loads are specified in the vehicle documents. In general, they are valid for gradients up to max. 12 %. The permitted trailer load applies up to the specified incline and up to an altitude of 1000 metres above sea level. Since engine power decreases as altitude increases due to the air becoming thinner, therefore reducing climbing ability, the permissible gross train weight also decreases by 10 % for every 1000 metres of additional altitude. The gross train weight does not have to be reduced when driving on roads with slight inclines (less than 8 %, e.g. motorways). The permissible gross train weight must not be exceeded. This weight is specified on the identification plate 3 201. Vertical coupling load The vertical coupling load is the load exerted by the trailer on the coupling ball. It can be varied by changing the weight distribution when loading the trailer. The maximum permissible vertical coupling load (80 kg) is specified on the towing equipment identification plate and in the vehicle documents. Always aim for the maximum load, Driving and operating especially in the case of heavy trailers. The vertical coupling load should never fall below 25 kg. When measuring the vertical coupling load, ensure the drawbar of the loaded trailer is at the same height as it will be when the trailer is coupled with the towing vehicle loaded. This is particularly important for trailers with tandem axle. Rear axle load When the trailer is coupled and the towing vehicle is fully loaded (including all occupants), the permissible rear axle load (see identification plate or vehicle documents) must not be exceeded. National regulations regarding maximum speeds for vehicles towing a trailer must be observed. Towing equipment Caution 149 Remove sealing plug from the hole for the coupling ball bar and stow it in the load compartment. When operating without a trailer, remove the coupling ball bar. Towing equipment with detachable coupling ball bar The coupling ball bar is kept in a bag, fastened with a strap and is stowed below the floor cover in the load compartment. Fitting the coupling ball bar Confirm that the colour marking on the lever is red. 150 Driving and operating Inserting the coupling ball bar 9 Warning Towing a trailer is permitted only when the coupling ball bar is fitted correctly. If the coupling ball bar cannot be properly attached, seek the assistance of a workshop. Insert the coupling ball bar into the coupling housing and push firmly downwards until the coupling ball bar audibly engages. If it does not engage, repeat fitting procedure. Do not swing the coupling ball bar to the left or right, or upwards and downwards, to avoid disrupting correct fitting. Lock coupling ball bar by turning the supplied key in the lock cylinder of the coupling ball bar. Remove key. Check that the coupling ball bar is correctly attached: ■ Green marking must be visible on lever. ■ Coupling ball bar must be seated firmly in coupling housing. Coupling ball bar must be locked and key must be removed. Eye for break-away stopping cable In the case of trailers with brakes, attach the break-away stopping cable to the eye - not to the coupling ball bar. Dismounting the coupling ball bar Driving and operating Unlock coupling ball bar and remove key. Push lever to the left, towards the coupling ball bar and turn it downwards. Pull coupling ball bar out of coupling housing. Remove any rust or dirt from area around the coupling housing and coupling ball bar connection before inserting sealing plug in the hole. Place the coupling ball bar in the bag supplied, fasten it with the strap and stow it below the floor cover in the load compartment. Do not use steam-jet cleaners or other high-pressure cleaners to clean the coupling ball bar. Trailer stability assist If the system detects snaking movements, engine power is reduced and the vehicle/trailer combination is selectively braked until the snaking ceases. While system is working keep steering wheel as still as possible. Trailer stability assist (TSA) is a function of the Electronic Stability Control 3 139. 151 152 Vehicle care Vehicle care General Information ................... 152 Vehicle checks ........................... 153 Bulb replacement ....................... 161 Electrical system ........................ 167 Vehicle tools .............................. 175 Wheels and tyres ....................... 177 Jump starting ............................. 190 Towing ....................................... 192 Appearance care ....................... 194 General Information Accessories and vehicle modifications We recommend the use of genuine parts and accessories and factory approved parts specific for your vehicle type.

Caution Do not allow objects to protrude above the top of the rear floor storage compartment, to avoid damage to the storage area and the load compartment floor. Tyre repair kit 3 183. Drive over edges slowly and at right angles if possible. Driving over sharp edges can cause tyre and wheel damage. Do not trap tyres on the kerb when parking. Regularly check the wheels for damage. Seek the assistance of a workshop in the event of damage or unusual wear. Winter tyres Winter tyres improve driving safety at temperatures below 7 °C and should therefore be fitted on all wheels. Tyres of size 215/70 R 16 are recommended as winter tyres. In accordance with country-specific regulations, affix the speed sticker in the driver's field of view. If winter tyres are installed that have not been approved for your vehicle, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system performance may be affected 177 3 139. Seek the assistance of a workshop regarding availability of approved winter tyres. If winter tyres are in use, the temporary spare wheel may still be fitted with a summer tyre. Vehicle driveability could be affected, especially on slippery road surfaces. Spare wheel 3 189. Tyre designations E.g. 235/65 R 17 104 H 235 = Tyre width, in mm 65 = Cross-section ratio (tyre height to tyre width), % R = Belt type: Radial RF = Type: RunFlat 17 = Wheel diameter, in inches 104 = Load index e.g. 91 is equivalent to 618 kg H = Speed code letter Speed code letter: Q = up to 100 mph S = up to 112 mph T = up to 118 mph H = up to 130 mph 178 Vehicle care V = up to 150 mph W = up to 168 mph Tyre pressure Check the pressure of cold tyres at least every 14 days and before any long journey. Do not forget the spare wheel. This also applies to vehicles with tyre pressure monitoring system. Use the valve cap key to make unscrewing the valve caps easier. The valve cap key is located on the inside of the tank flap. Tyre pressure 3 210. The tyre pressure data refers to cold tyres. It applies to summer and winter tyres. Always inflate the spare tyre to the pressure specified for full load. The ECO tyre pressure serves to achieve the smallest amount of fuel consumption possible. Incorrect tyre pressures will impair safety, vehicle handling, comfort and fuel economy and will increase tyre wear. Tyre pressures differ depending on various options. For the correct tyre pressure value, follow the procedure below: 1. Identify the engine identifier code. Engine data 3 205. 2. Identify the respective tyre. The tyre pressure tables show all possible tyre combinations 3 210. For the tyres approved for your vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of Conformity provided with your vehicle or other national registration documents. The driver is responsible for correct adjustment of tyre pressure. 9 Warning If the pressure is too low, this can result in considerable tyre warmup and internal damage, leading to tread separation and even to tyre blow-out at high speeds. If the tyre pressure must be reduced or increased on a vehicle with tyre pressure monitoring system, switch off ignition. Tyre pressure monitoring system The tyre pressure monitoring system checks the pressure of all four wheels once per minute when vehicle speed exceeds a certain limit. Caution Tyre pressure monitoring system warns only about low tyre pressure condition and does not replace regular tyre maintenance by the driver. All wheels must be equipped with pressure sensors and the tyres must have the prescribed pressure. If wheels without sensors are mounted, the tyre pressure monitoring system is not operational. Vehicle care Notice In countries where the tyre pressure monitoring system is legally required, the use of wheels without pressure sensors will invalidate the vehicle type approval. The TPMS sensors monitor the air pressure in the tyres and transmit tyre pressure readings to a receiver located in the vehicle. Each tyre, including the spare, should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the recommended inflation pressure 3 210. Low tyre pressure condition A detected low tyre pressure condition is indicated by control indicator w 3 89. If w illuminates, stop as soon as possible and inflate the tyres as recommended 3 210. When the system detects a malfunction, w will flash for approx. one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When w is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tyre pressure as intended. 179 Tyre pressures in Info-Display The current tyre pressures can be shown in the menu item Tyres in the Board Computer menu. Press the BC button on the Infotainment system and select the menu item. The tyre pressure monitoring system automatically detects the vehicle load. A corresponding message may appear on the Info-Display if inconsistent tyre pressures are detected. In some versions, the message is displayed in abbreviated form. 180 Vehicle care For example, the following messages can be displayed: If the tyre pressure is to be reduced or increased, switch off the ignition. Tyre pressures 3 178, 3 210. Temperature dependency A graphic indicating the left rear tyre is shown together with the current tyre pressure; slight pressure deviation. Reduce speed. Check tyre pressure at next opportunity with an appropriate gauge and correct if necessary. On the Colour-Info-Display, this message will appear in yellow. A graphic indicating the front left tyre is shown together with the current tyre pressure; significant pressure deviation or direct pressure loss. Steer out of the flow of traffic as quickly as possible without endangering other vehicles. Stop and check the tyres. Mount the spare wheel if necessary 3 186. On the Colour-Info-Display, this message will appear in red. Acknowledgement of warnings 3 92, 3 95. Vehicle messages 3 100. Tyre pressure depends on the temperature of the tyre. During driving, tyre temperature and pressure increase. The tyre pressure value shown in the Info-Display is the actual tyre pressure. Therefore it is important to check tyre pressure with cold tyres. General information The use of commercially available liquid tyre repair kits can impair the function of the system. Factoryapproved tyre repair kits can be used. Tyre repair kit 3 183. External high-power radio equipment could disrupt the TPMS. The tyre pressure monitoring system valve cores and sealing rings must be replaced each time the tyres are changed. Vehicle care TPMS sensor matching process Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. The identification code must be matched to a new tyre/ wheel position after rotating the tyres or replacing one or more of the TPMS sensors. The TPMS sensor matching process should also be performed after replacing a spare tyre with a road tyre containing a TPMS sensor. The control indicator w and the warning message should extinguish at the next ignition cycle. The sensors are matched to the tyre/ wheel positions, using a TPMS relearn tool, in the following order: ■ left front tyre ■ right front tyre ■ right rear tyre ■ left rear tyre Consult your workshop for service or to purchase a relearn tool. There are two minutes to match the first tyre/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tyre/wheel positions. If it takes longer, the matching process stops and must be restarted. The TPMS sensor matching process is as follows: 1. Apply the electrical parking brake 3 137; on vehicles with automatic transmission move the selector lever to position P. 2. Turn the ignition on 3 124. 3. Initiate the TPMS Learn Mode by simultaneously pressing buttons p and q on the radio remote control, - or Press the INFO button on the Infotainment system until a tyre learn message appears on the Info-display. Press and hold the OK button. The horn sounds twice and the left front turn signal also illuminates as confirmation that Learn Mode has been enabled. 4. Start with the left front tyre. 181 5. Place the relearn tool against the tyre sidewall, near the valve stem. Then press the button to activate the TPMS sensor. A horn chirp confirms that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tyre and wheel position. The next relevant turn signal illuminates. 6. Proceed to the right front tyre, and repeat the procedure in Step 5. 7. Proceed to the right rear tyre, and repeat the procedure in Step 5. 8. Proceed to the left rear tyre, and repeat the procedure in Step 5. The horn sounds twice to indicate the sensor identification code has been matched, and the TPMS sensor matching process is no longer active. 9. Turn off the ignition. 10. Set all four tyres to the recommended inflation pressure 3 210. 182 Vehicle care Tread depth Check tread depth at regular intervals. Tyres should be replaced for safety reasons at a tread depth of 2-3 mm (4 mm for winter tyres). For safety reasons it is recommended that the tread depth of the tyres on one axle should not vary by more than 2 mm. indicators (TWI). Their position is indicated by markings on the sidewall. If there is more wear at the front than the rear, swap round front wheels and rear wheels. Ensure that the direction of rotation of the wheels is the same as before. Tyres age, even if they are not used. We recommend tyre replacement every 6 years. Changing tyre and wheel size The legally permissible minimum tread depth (1.6 mm) has been reached when the tread has worn down as far as one of the tread wear If tyres of a different size than those fitted at the factory are used, it may be necessary to reprogramme the speedometer as well as the nominal tyre pressure and make other vehicle modifications. After converting to a different tyre size, have the label with tyre pressures replaced. 9 Warning Use of unsuitable tyres or wheels may lead to accidents and will invalidate the vehicle type approval. If wheel rims of a different type are to be installed, the wheel nuts may also need to be changed. We recommend you consult a workshop. Wheel covers Wheel covers and tyres that are factory approved for the respective vehicle and comply with all of the relevant wheel and tyre combination requirements must be used. If the wheel covers and tyres used are not factory approved, the tyres must not have a rim protection ridge. Wheel covers must not impair brake cooling. Vehicle care 9 Warning Use of unsuitable tyres or wheel covers could lead to sudden pressure loss and thereby accidents. Tyre chains Tyre chains are only permitted on the front wheels. They must be fitted to the tyres symmetrically in order to achieve a concentric fit. Always use fine mesh chains that add no more than 15 mm to the tyre tread and the inboard sides (including chain lock). 9 Warning Damage may lead to tyre blowout. Tyre chains are permitted only on 16 inch wheels. We recommend you consult a workshop. If the use of tyre chains is required after suffering a flat front tyre, fit the temporary spare wheel on the rear axle and transfer one of the rear wheels to the front axle. General The use of tyre chains is not permitted on the temporary spare wheel. Tyre repair kit Minor damage to the tyre tread or sidewall can be repaired with the tyre repair kit. Do not remove foreign bodies from the tyres. 183 Tyre damage exceeding 4 mm or that is at the tyre's sidewall near the rim cannot be repaired with the tyre repair kit. In vehicles with a tyre repair kit, there may not be a jack and vehicle tool kit. Vehicle tools 3 175. Temporary spare wheel 3 189. 9 Warning Do not drive faster than 50 mph.

Inflate the tyre to the recommended inflation pressure using the pressure gauge. The prescribed tyre pressure should be obtained within 10 minutes 3 210. When the correct pressure Vehicle care is obtained, switch off the compressor. If the prescribed tyre pressure is not obtained within 10 minutes, remove the tyre repair kit. Move the vehicle one tyre rotation. Reattach the tyre repair kit and continue the filling procedure for 10 minutes. If the prescribed tyre pressure is still not obtained, the tyre is too badly damaged. Seek the assistance of a workshop. Drain excess tyre pressure with the button next to the pressure gauge. Do not run the compressor for longer than 10 minutes. 8. Detach the tyre repair kit and replace the tyre valve cap. 9. Remove any excess sealant using a cloth. 185 not be driven. Seek the assistance of a workshop. 10. Take the label indicating maximum permitted speed from the sealant canister and affix in the driver's field of view. 11. Continue driving immediately so that sealant is evenly distributed in the tyre. After driving approx. 6 miles (but no more than 10 minutes) stop and check tyre pressure. If the tyre pressure has fallen slightly, set it to the correct value. Repeat the procedure until there is no more loss of pressure. If the tyre pressure has fallen by more than 10 psi, the vehicle must 12. To adjust tyre pressure, screw compressor air hose (arrowed) directly onto tyre valve. 186 Vehicle care 13. Turn the selector switch clockwise to the air only position. Switch on the compressor to inflate the tyre with air only. Notice The driving characteristic of the repaired tyre is severely affected, therefore have this tyre replaced.

Pay attention to storage information on sealant canister. Replace the used sealant canister. To remove sealant canister, release sealant filler hose and air hose, slide canister out of housing and unscrew hose from canister. Dispose of the canister as prescribed by applicable laws. The accessory adapter supplied can be used to pump up other items e.g. footballs, air mattresses, inflatable dinghies etc. The adapter is located on the underside of the tyre repair kit. Wheel changing Some vehicles are equipped with a tyre repair kit instead of a spare wheel 3 183. Make the following preparations and observe the following information: ■ Park the vehicle on a level, firm and non-slippery surface. The front wheels must be in the straightahead position. ■ Apply the electrical parking brake 3 137 and engage first gear, reverse gear or P. ■ Remove the spare wheel 3 189. ■ Never change more than one wheel at a time. ■ Block wheel diagonally opposite the wheel to be changed, by placing wedge blocks or equivalent in front and behind the wheel. ■ Use the jack only to change wheels in case of puncture, not for seasonal winter or summer tyre changes. ■ Never exceed jack maximum working load (900 kg). ■ If the ground on which the vehicle is standing is soft, a solid board (max. 1 cm thick) should be placed under the jack. Vehicle care ■ Do not raise the vehicle more than is necessary to change a wheel. ■ No people or animals may be in the vehicle when it is jacked-up. ■ Never crawl under a jacked-up vehicle. ■ Do not start the engine when it is raised on the jack. ■ Clean wheel nuts and thread before mounting the wheel. 187 1. Pull off the wheel cover. 2. Install the wheel wrench ensuring that it locates securely and loosen each wheel nut by one turn by turning anticlockwise. 9 Warning Do not grease wheel bolt, wheel nut and wheel nut cone. 3. The location of front and rear jacking points is indicated by notches on the bottom edge of the vehicle, under the doors. 4. Before positioning the jack, set it to the necessary height by rotating the eye by hand. Position jack at the jacking point located nearest to the wheel concerned so that the jack claw spans the vertical base. Ensure the jack is positioned correctly. The jack base must be on the ground directly below the jacking point in a manner that prevents it from slipping. 188 Vehicle care 8. Screw on the wheel nuts and tighten slightly by hand by turning clockwise until wheel is held against the hub. 9. Rotate wrench anticlockwise and lower vehicle to the ground. 5. Attach wheel wrench to eye of threaded rod and rotate wrench clockwise to raise vehicle. If this is not the case, carefully lower the vehicle immediately and reposition the jack. Raise the vehicle until the wheel is just clear of the ground. 6. Unscrew wheel nuts completely and wipe clean with a cloth. Do not grease the threads. Put wheel nuts somewhere where the threads will not be soiled. 7. Change the wheel. Notes on spare wheel 3 189. 10. Install the wheel wrench ensuring that it locates securely and tighten each wheel nut in a crosswise sequence. Tightening torque is 140 Nm. 11. Stow the replaced wheel 3 189 and the vehicle tools 3 175. 12. Check the tyre pressure of the installed tyre as soon as possible. Have the defective tyre renewed and replace temporary spare wheel with a full specification wheel without delay. Jacking position for lifting platform Rear arm position of the lifting platform centrically under the recess of the sill. Vehicle care 189 corresponding speed limits apply, even though no label indicates this. Seek the assistance of a workshop to check the applicable speed limit. Use of the temporary spare wheel could affect driveability, particularly if using winter tyres. Have the defective tyre renewed as soon as possible and have the wheel balanced and fitted to the vehicle. Front arm position of the lifting platform centrically under the recess of the sill. Spare wheel Temporary spare wheel Some vehicles are equipped with a tyre repair kit instead of a spare wheel. The temporary spare wheel is designed for use on your vehicle only. If mounting a spare wheel which is different from the other wheels, this wheel might be classified as a temporary spare wheel and the Caution The use of a spare wheel that is smaller than the other wheels or in combination with winter tyres could affect driveability. Have the defective tyre replaced as soon as possible. The temporary spare wheel is located in the load compartment below the floor cover and is secured with a screw-in retainer. Push both levers on the floor cover towards the handle and pull up the cover by the handle. Hang the hook to the upper part of the tailgate opening. Vehicle tools 3 175. Remove the retainer by rotating it anticlockwise and remove temporary spare wheel from the spare wheel well. 190 Vehicle care Only mount one temporary spare wheel. Do not drive faster than 50 mph. Take curves slowly. Do not use for a long period of time. When the temporary spare wheel is fitted, do not take the vehicle through an automatic vehicle wash with guide rails. The temporary spare wheel may get caught on the rails, causing damage to the tyre, wheel and other vehicle parts. The use of tyre chains is not permitted on the temporary spare wheel. Tyre chains 3 183. Directional tyres Fit directional tyres such that they roll in the direction of travel. The rolling direction is indicated by a symbol (e.g. an arrow) on the sidewall. The following applies to tyres fitted opposing the rolling direction: ■ Driveability may be affected. Have the defective tyre renewed as soon as possible and have the wheel balanced and fitted to the vehicle. ■ Do not drive faster than 50 mph. ■ Drive particularly carefully on wet and snow-covered road surfaces. 9 Warning Storing a jack, a wheel or other equipment in the load compartment could cause injury if they are not fixed in place properly. During a sudden stop or a collision, loose equipment could cause personal injury or damage to the vehicle. Always store the jack and vehicle tools in their respective storage compartments and secure them properly. Always place the damaged wheel in the load compartment, secured in the spare wheel well with the screw-in retainer. Jump starting Do not start with quick charger. A vehicle with a discharged battery can be started using jump leads and the battery of another vehicle. 9 Warning Be extremely careful when starting with jump leads. Any deviation from the following instructions can lead to injuries or damage caused by battery explosion or damage to the electrical systems of both vehicles. 9 Warning Avoid contact of the battery with eyes, skin, fabrics and painted surfaces. The fluid contains sulphuric acid which can cause injuries and damage in the event of direct contact. ■ Never expose the battery to naked flames or sparks. Vehicle care ■ A discharged battery can already freeze at a temperature of 0 °C. Defrost the frozen battery before connecting jump leads. ■ Wear eye protection and protective clothing when handling a battery. ■ Use a booster battery with the same voltage (12 Volts). Its capacity (Ah) must not be much less than that of the discharged battery. ■ Use jump leads with insulated terminals and a cross section of at least 16 mm2 (25 mm2 for diesel engines). ■ Do not disconnect the discharged battery from the vehicle. ■ Switch off all unnecessary electrical consumers. The Infotainment system may be damaged if switched on while jump starting. ■ Do not lean over the battery during jump starting. ■ Do not allow the terminals of one lead to touch those of the other lead. ■ The vehicles must not come into contact with each other during the jump starting process. ■ Apply the electrical parking brake 3 137, transmission in neutral, automatic transmission in P. ■ Open the positive terminal protection caps of both batteries. Lead connection order: 1. Connect the red lead to the positive terminal 1 of the booster battery. 2. Connect the other end of the red lead to the positive terminal 2 of the discharged battery. 191 3. Connect the black lead to the negative terminal 3 of the booster battery. 4. Connect the other end of the black lead to a vehicle grounding point, such as the engine block 4 or an engine mounting bolt. Connect as far away from the discharged battery as possible, however at least 60 cm. Route the leads so that they cannot catch on rotating parts in the engine compartment. To start the engine: 1. Start the engine of the vehicle providing the jump start. 2. After 5 minutes, start the other engine. Start attempts should be made for no longer than 15 seconds at an interval of 1 minute. 3. Allow both engines to idle for approx. 3 minutes with the leads connected. 192 Vehicle care 4. Switch on electrical consumers (e.g. headlights, heated rear window) of the vehicle receiving the jump start. 5. Operate discharged vehicle for approx. 20 minutes to allow for adequate battery recharging. 6. Reverse above sequence exactly when removing leads. Towing Towing the vehicle Remove the spoiler lip from the front left-hand side of the vehicle by unfastening the six screws located on the underside of the vehicle. Then attach the towing eye. The towing eye is stowed with the vehicle tools 3 175. Screw in the towing eye as far as it will go until it stops in a horizontal position. Attach a tow rope - or better still a tow rod - to the front towing eye, never to the bumper or front suspension units. Do not tow the vehicle from the rear. The front towing eye must only be used for towing and not recovering a vehicle. Switch on ignition to release steering wheel lock and to permit operation of brake lights, horn and windscreen wiper. Transmission in neutral. Vehicle care Turn key to ignition switch position ACC and release the electrical parking brake before towing the vehicle. Caution Drive slowly. Do not drive jerkily. Excessive tractive force can damage the vehicle. When the engine is not running, considerably more force is needed to brake and steer. Keep tow rope clear of front bumper, and ensure it is securely fixed to the towing eye at both ends. Pull on the tow rope to check. To prevent the entry of exhaust gases from the towing vehicle, switch on the air recirculation system 3 116 and close the windows. Vehicles with manual transmission: The vehicle must be towed facing forwards. The maximum speed is 55 mph. In all other cases, and when the transmission is defective, the front axle must be raised off the ground. Vehicles with automatic transmission: Do not tow the vehicle using the towing eye. Towing with a tow rope could cause severe damage to the transmission. When towing a vehicle with automatic transmission, use flat bed or wheel lift equipment. Seek the assistance of a workshop. After towing, unscrew the towing eye and replace the spoiler lip. Store towing eye in the storage compartment below the floor cover in the load compartment. Vehicle tools 3 175. 193 Towing another vehicle Remove the cover located on the rear bumper by pressing the lower part of the cover. The rear towing eye attachment is stored below the floor cover in the load compartment. Screw the rear towing eye attachment anticlockwise using a suitable screwdriver, until it is firmly in place and stops in a horizontal position. Attach a tow rope – or better still a tow rod – to the rear towing eye. 194 Vehicle care The towing eye must only be used for towing and not for recovering a vehicle. Caution Drive slowly. Do not drive jerkily. Excessive tractive force can damage the vehicle. To prevent damage, do not take up slack in the tow rope too quickly. After towing, unscrew the rear towing eye attachment clockwise to remove, and reinstall the cover. Appearance care Exterior care Locks The locks are lubricated at the factory using a high quality lock cylinder grease. Use de-icing agent only when absolutely necessary, as this has a degreasing effect and impairs lock function. After using a de-icing agent, have the locks regreased by a workshop. Washing The paintwork of your vehicle is exposed to environmental influences. Wash and wax your vehicle regularly. When using automatic car washes, select a programme that includes waxing. Bird droppings, dead insects, resin, pollen and the like should be cleaned off immediately, as they contain aggressive constituents which can cause paint damage. If using a car wash, comply with the car wash manufacturer's instructions. The windscreen wiper and rear window wiper must be switched off. Remove antenna and external accessories such as roof racks etc. If you wash your vehicle by hand, make sure that the insides of the wheel housings are also thoroughly rinsed out. Clean edges and folds on opened doors and the bonnet as well as the areas they cover. Caution Always use a cleaning agent with a pH value of 4 to 9. Do not use cleaning agents on hot surfaces. Have the door hinges of all doors greased by a workshop. Do not clean the engine compartment with a steam-jet or high-pressure jet cleaner. Vehicle care When cleaning with a high-pressure jet cleaner, ensure a minimum distance of 30 cm when working around the tailgate to prevent unintended unlocking. Thoroughly rinse and leather-off the vehicle. Rinse leather frequently. Use separate leathers for painted and glass surfaces: remnants of wax on the windows will impair vision. Exterior lights Headlight and other light covers are made of plastic. Do not use any abrasive or caustic agents, do not use an ice scraper, and do not clean them dry. Polishing and waxing Wax the vehicle regularly (at the latest when water no longer beads). Otherwise, the paintwork will dry out. Polishing is necessary only if the paint has become dull or if solid deposits have become attached to it. Paintwork polish with silicone forms a protective film, making waxing unnecessary. Plastic body parts must not be treated with wax or polishing agents. Windows and windscreen wiper blades Use a soft lint-free cloth or chamois leather together with window cleaner and insect remover. When cleaning the rear window, make sure the heating element inside is not damaged. For mechanical removal of ice, use a sharp-edged ice scraper. Press the scraper firmly against the glass so that no dirt can get under it and scratch the glass. Clean smearing wiper blades with a soft cloth and window cleaner. Sunroof Never clean with solvents or abrasive agents, fuels, aggressive media (e.g. paint cleaner, acetonecontaining solutions etc.), acidic or highly alkaline media or abrasive pads. Do not apply wax or polishing agents to the sunroof. 195 Wheels and tyres Do not use high-pressure jet cleaners. Clean rims with a pH-neutral wheel cleaner. Rims are painted and can be treated with the same agents as the body. Paintwork damage Rectify minor paintwork damage with a touch-up pen before rust forms. Have more extensive damage or rust areas repaired by a workshop. Underbody Some areas of the vehicle underbody have a PVC undercoating while other critical areas have a durable protective wax coating. After the underbody is washed, check the underbody and have it waxed if necessary. Bitumen/rubber materials could damage the PVC coating. Have underbody work carried out by a workshop. 196 Vehicle care Before and after winter, wash the underbody and have the protective wax coating checked. Towing equipment Do not clean the coupling ball bar with a steam-jet or high-pressure jet cleaner. Rear carrier system Clean the rear carrier system with a steam-jet or high-pressure jet cleaner at least once a year. Operate the rear carrier system once in a while if not in regular use, in particular during winter. Interior care Interior and upholstery Only clean the vehicle interior, including the instrument panel fascia and panelling, with a dry cloth or interior cleaner. Clean the leather upholstery with clear water and a soft cloth. In case of heavy soiling, use leather care. The instrument cluster and the displays should only be cleaned using a soft damp cloth. If necessary use a weak soap solution. Clean fabric upholstery with a vacuum cleaner and brush. Remove stains with an upholstery cleaner. Clothing fabrics may not be colourfast. This could cause visible discolourations, especially on lightcoloured upholstery. Removable stains and discolourations should be cleaned as soon as possible. Clean seat belts with lukewarm water or interior cleaner. Caution Close Velcro fasteners as open Velcro fasteners on clothing could damage seat upholstery. The same applies to clothing with sharp-edged objects, like zips or belts or studded jeans. Plastic and rubber parts Plastic and rubber parts can be cleaned with the same cleaner as used to clean the body. Use interior cleaner if necessary. Do not use any other agent. Avoid solvents and petrol in particular. Do not use highpressure jet cleaners. Service and maintenance Service and maintenance General information ................... 197 Recommended fluids, lubricants and parts .................................... 198 General information Service information In order to ensure economical and safe vehicle operation and to maintain the value of your vehicle, it is of vital importance that all maintenance work is carried out at the proper intervals as specified. The detailed, up-to-date service schedule for the vehicle is available at the workshop. Service display 3 81. European service intervals Main service Maintenance of your vehicle is required every 20,000 miles or after 1 year, whichever occurs first, unless otherwise indicated in the service display. A shorter service interval can be valid for severe driving behaviour, e.g. for taxis and police vehicles. The European service intervals are valid for the following countries: 197 Andorra, Austria, Belgium, BosniaHerzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom. Service display 3 81. International service intervals Main service Maintenance of your vehicle is required every 10,000 miles or 1 year, whichever occurs first, unless otherwise indicated in the service display. The international service intervals are valid for the countries which are not listed in the European service intervals. Service display 3 81. 198 Service and maintenance Confirmations Confirmation of service is recorded in the Service and Warranty Booklet. The date and mileage is completed with the stamp and signature of the servicing workshop. Make sure that the Service and Warranty Booklet is completed correctly as continuous proof of service is essential if any warranty or goodwill claims are to be met, and is also a benefit when selling the vehicle. Service interval with remaining engine oil life duration The service interval is based on several parameters depending on usage. The service display lets you know when to change the engine oil. Service display 3 81. Recommended fluids, lubricants and parts Recommended fluids and lubricants Only use products that meet the recommended specifications. Damage resulting from the use of products not in line with these specifications will not be covered by the warranty. 9 Warning Operating materials are hazardous and could be poisonous. Handle with care. Pay attention to information given on the containers. Engine oil Engine oil is identified by its quality and its viscosity. Quality is more important than viscosity when selecting which engine oil to use. The oil quality ensures e.g. engine cleanliness, wear protection and oil ageing control, whereas viscosity grade gives information on the oil's thickness over a temperature range. Dexos is the newest engine oil quality that provides optimum protection for gasoline and diesel engines. If it is unavailable, engine oils of other listed qualities have to be used. Recommendations for petrol engines are also valid for Ethanol (E85) fuelled engines. Select the appropriate engine oil based on its quality and on the minimum ambient temperature 3 202. Topping up engine oil Engine oils of different manufacturers and brands can be mixed as long as they comply with the required engine oil quality and viscosity. Use of engine oil with only ACEA A1/B1 or only A5/B5 quality is prohibited, since it can cause longterm engine damage under certain operating conditions. Service and maintenance Select the appropriate engine oil based on its quality and on the minimum ambient temperature 3 202. Additional engine oil additives The use of additional engine oil additives could cause damage and invalidate the warranty. Engine oil viscosity The SAE viscosity grade gives information of the thickness of the oil. Multigrade oil is indicated by two figures, e.g. SAE 5W-30. The first figure, followed by a W, indicates the low temperature viscosity and the second figure the high temperature viscosity. Select the appropriate viscosity grade depending on the minimum ambient temperature 3 202. All of the recommended viscosity grades are suitable for high ambient temperatures. Coolant and antifreeze Use only silicate-free long life coolant (LLC) antifreeze. Consult a workshop. The system is factory filled with coolant designed for excellent corrosion protection and frost protection down to approx. -28 °C. In northern countries with very low temperatures the factory filled coolant provides frost protection down to approx. -37 °C. This concentration should be maintained all year round. The use of additional coolant additives that intend to give additional corrosion protection or seal against minor leaks can cause function problems. Liability for consequences resulting from the use of additional coolant additives will be rejected. Brake and clutch fluid Over time, brake fluid absorbs moisture which will reduce braking effectiveness. The brake fluid should therefore be replaced at the specified interval. 199 200 Technical data Technical data Vehicle identification .................. 200 Vehicle data ............................... 202 Vehicle identification Vehicle Identification Number The Vehicle Identification Number is also engraved on the top right-hand side of the bulkhead near the centre of the engine firewall.

In general, this technical information documents the condition of parts, modules, systems or the environment: ■ Operating conditions of system components (e.g. filling levels) ■ Status messages of the vehicle and its single components (e.g. number of wheel revolutions / rotational speed, deceleration, lateral acceleration) ■ Dysfunctions and defects in important system components ■ Vehicle reactions in particular driving situations (e.g. inflation of an airbag, activation of the stability regulation system) ■ Environmental conditions (e.g. temperature) These data are exclusively technical and help identifying and correcting errors as well as optimizing vehicle functions. Motion profiles indicating travelled routes cannot be created with these data. If services are used (e.g. repair works, service processes, warranty cases, quality assurance), employees of the service network (manufacturer included) are able to read out this technical information from the event and error data storage modules applying special diagnostic devices. If required, you will receive further information at these workshops. After an error has been corrected, the data are deleted from the error storage module or they are constantly overwritten. 213 When using the vehicle, situations may occur in which these technical data related to other information (accident report, damages on the vehicle, witness statements etc.) may be associated with a specific person possibly with the assistance of an expert. Additional functions contractually agreed upon with the client (e.g. vehicle location in emergency cases) allow the transmission of particular vehicle data from the vehicle. 214 Customer information Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) RFID technology is used in some vehicles for functions such as tyre pressure monitoring and ignition system security. It is also used in connection with conveniences such as radio remote controls for door locking/unlocking and starting, and invehicle transmitters for garage door openers.
