Storage

Align the bicycle in the longitudinal

direction of the vehicle: Slightly

loosen the pedal mount.
Place the bicycle upright using the

rotary lever on the pedal crank

recess.
If the two bicycles obstruct one

another, the relative positions of the

bicycles can be adapted by adjusting

the wheel recesses and the rotary

lever on the pedal crank recess until

the bicycles no longer touch one

another. Make sure there is sufficient

clearance from the vehicle.

Tighten the attachment screw for the

pedal bearing mount to its maximum

point by hand.
Secure both bicycle wheels to wheel

recesses using strap retainers.
Check the bicycle to make sure it is

secure.

Caution

Ensure gap between bicycle and

vehicle is at least 5 cm. If

necessary, loosen handlebar and

swivel sideways.

The settings for the wheel recesses

and on the rotary lever on the pedal

crank recess should be noted and

saved for each bicycle. Correct

presetting will facilitate refitting of the

bicycle.

Note

It is recommended to attach a

warning sign at the rearmost bicycle

to increase visibility.

The rear seat backrest is divided into

three parts. All parts can be folded

down individually to increase the size

of the load compartment.

9 Warning

Do not stow objects under or

behind the seats. The objects

might be damaged and prevent

the guide rails from locking

properly.

A completely flat load bay is created

if first the centre seat and then the

outer rear seat backrests are folded

down.

Storage

Pull the loop on the rear of the

backrest and fold down the backrest.
To fold up, pull the loop and raise the

backrests into an upright position until

When folding up, ensure that

backrests are securely locked in

position before driving. Failure to

do so may result in personal injury

or damage to load or vehicle in the

event of heavy braking or collision.

space between the load-bay floor and

the spare wheel well cover can be

used as a stowage compartment.
In this position, if the rear seat

backrests are folded forwards, an

almost completely flat load bay is

created.
In the upper position, the double load-

bay floor is able to withstand a

maximum load of 100 kg. In the lower

position, the double load-bay floor is

must point away from the lower net

rod.

Fasten Velcro tape tightly about the

net next to the length adjusters. The

length adjusters and net rods must lie

flat next to each other.

Storage

79

Roof rack system

Roof rack

For safety reasons and to avoid

damage to the roof, the vehicle

approved roof rack system is

recommended. For further

information contact your workshop.
Follow the installation instructions

and remove the roof rack when not in

use.

Detach the cover from each mounting

point.

Loading information

● Heavy objects in the load

compartment should be placed

against the seat backrests.

Ensure that the backrests are

securely engaged. If objects can

be stacked, heavier objects

should be placed at the bottom.

● Secure objects with lashing

straps attached to the lashing

eyes 3 76.

● Use the hook at the left sidewall

of the load compartment for

hanging up carrier bags. Pull out

the hook. Maximum load: 3 kg.

● Secure loose objects in the load

compartment to prevent them

from 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.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

80

Storage

● 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, 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 3 224) and the EC kerb

weight.

To calculate the payload, 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 (fuel

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

120 km/h.
The permissible roof load is

60 kg. The roof load is the

combined weight of the roof rack

and the load.
