Vehicle care

3. Connect the black lead to the

negative terminal of the booster

battery.

4. Connect the other end of the black

lead to a vehicle grounding point,

such as the engine block 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.

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.

4. Switch on electrical consumers

(e.g. headlights, heated rear

window) of the vehicle receiving

the jump start.

5. Reverse above sequence exactly

when removing leads.

Towing

Towing the vehicle

Disengage cap at bottom and remove

downwards.
The towing eye is stowed with the

vehicle tools 3 195.

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

Vehicle care

215

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 towing eye.
The towing eye must only be used for

towing and not for recovering the

vehicle.

Caution

Activate the child lock in both rear

doors if the rear seats are

occupied. Child locks 3 26.

Switch on ignition to release steering

wheel lock and to permit operation of

brake lights, horn and windscreen

wiper.
Transmission in neutral.

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.
To prevent the entry of exhaust gases

from the towing vehicle, switch on the

air recirculation and close the

windows.
Vehicles with automatic transmission:

The vehicle must be towed facing

forwards, not faster than 80 km/h nor

further than 100 km. In all other cases

and when the transmission is

defective, the front axle must be

raised off the ground.
Seek the assistance of a workshop.
After towing, unscrew the towing eye.

Insert cap at the bottom and close

cap.

Towing another vehicle

Disengage the cap at the bottom and

remove downwards.
The towing eye is stowed with the

vehicle tools 3 195.

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

216

Vehicle care

Screw in the towing eye as far as it will

go until it stops in a horizontal

position.
The lashing eye at the rear

underneath the vehicle must never be

used as a towing eye.
Attach a tow rope – or even better a

tow bar – to the towing eye.
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.

After towing, unscrew the towing eye.
Insert cap at the bottom and engage

cap.

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 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 vehicle

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.

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

Vehicle care

217

If using a vehicle wash, comply with

the vehicle 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.

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.
Do not use hard objects to remove

spots of tar. Use tar removal spray on

painted surfaces.

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 from

inside, always wipe in parallel to the

heating element to prevent damage.
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.
Remove dirt residues from smearing

wiper blades by using a soft cloth and

window cleaner. Also make sure to

remove any residues such as wax,

insect residues and similar from the

window.
Ice residues, pollution and continuous

wiping on dry windows will damage or

even destroy the wiper blades.

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

218

Vehicle care

Moonroof

Never clean with solvents or abrasive

agents, fuels, aggressive media (e.g.

paint cleaner, acetone-containing

solutions etc.), acidic or highly

alkaline media or abrasive pads. Do

not apply wax or polishing agents to

the middle part of the moonroof.

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.
Before and after winter, wash the

underbody and have the protective

wax coating checked.

Liquid gas system

9 Danger

Liquid gas is heavier than air and

can collect in sink points.
Take care when performing work

at the underbody in a pit.

For painting work and when using a

drying booth at a temperature above

60 °C, the liquid gas tank must be

removed.
Do not make any modifications to the

liquid gas system.

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

periodically 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.

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

Vehicle care

219

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 light-

coloured 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 high-

pressure jet cleaners.

Recommended fluids and

lubricants

Only use products that meet the

recommended specifications.

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

aging 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 gasoline

engines are also valid for

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG),

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) and

Ethanol (E85) fuelled engines.
Select the appropriate engine oil

based on its quality and on the

minimum ambient temperature

3

 225.

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 long-

term engine damage under certain

operating conditions.
Select the appropriate engine oil

based on its quality and on the

minimum ambient temperature

3

 225.

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

222

Service and maintenance

Additional engine oil additives

The use of additional engine oil

additives could cause damage and

invalidate the warranty.

Engine oil viscosity grades

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 3 225.
All of the recommended viscosity

grades are suitable for high ambient

temperatures.

Coolant and antifreeze

Use only organic acid type-long life

coolant (LLC) antifreeze approved for

the vehicle. 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.
