Vehicle care

Move the safety catch sideways to the

left vehicle side and open the bonnet.

Pull up the support rod lightly from the

holder. And then secure it at the left

side hook on the bonnet.
If the bonnet is opened during an

Autostop, the engine will be restarted

automatically for safety reasons.

Closing

Before closing the bonnet, press the

support into the holder.
Lower the bonnet and allow it to fall

into the latch from a low height

(20-25 cm). Check that the bonnet is

engaged.

Caution

Do not press the bonnet into the

latch, to avoid dents.

Engine oil

Check the engine oil level manually

on a regular basis to prevent damage

to the engine. Ensure that the correct

specification of oil is used.

Recommended fluids and lubricants

3

 206.

The maximum engine oil

consumption is 0.6 l per 1000 km.
Check with the vehicle on a level

surface. The engine must be at

operating temperature and switched

off for at least five minutes.
Pull out the dipstick, wipe it clean,

insert it to the stop on the handle, pull

out and read the engine oil level.
Insert dipstick to the stop on the

handle and make half a turn.

When the engine oil level has

dropped to the MIN mark, top up

engine oil.

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

Vehicle care

167

We recommend the use of the same

grade of engine oil that was used at

last change.
The engine oil level must not exceed

the MAX mark on the dipstick.

The engine oil filler cap is located on

the camshaft cover.

Caution

Overfilled engine oil must be

drained or suctioned out.

Capacities 3 217.
Fit the cap on straight and tighten it.

Engine coolant

The coolant provides freeze

protection down to approx. -30 °C. In

northern countries with very low

temperatures the factory filled coolant

provides frost protection down to

approx. -40 °C.

Caution

Only use approved antifreeze.

Coolant level

Caution

Too low a coolant level can cause

engine damage.

If the cooling system is cold, the

coolant level should be above the

filling line mark. Top up if the level is

low.

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

168

Vehicle care

9 Warning

Allow the engine to cool before

opening the cap. Carefully open

the cap, relieving the pressure

slowly.

To top up use a 1:1 mixture of

released coolant concentrate mixed

with clean tap water. If no coolant

concentrate is available, use clean

tap water. Install the cap tightly. Have

the coolant concentration checked

and have the cause of the coolant

loss remedied by a workshop.

Power steering fluid

Caution

Extremely small amounts of

contamination can cause steering

system damage and cause it to not

work properly. Do not allow

contaminates to contact the fluid

side of the reservoir cap/dipstick or

from entering the reservoir.

Power steering fluid level normally

does not need to be checked. If an

unusual noise sounds during steering

or the power steering reacts

conspicuously, seek the assistance of

a workshop.

Washer fluid

Fill with clean water mixed with a

suitable quantity of approved

windscreen washer fluid which

contains antifreeze.

Caution

Only washer fluid with a sufficient

antifreeze concentration provides

protection at low temperatures or

a sudden drop in temperature.

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

Vehicle care

169

Brakes

In the event of minimum thickness of

the brake lining, a squealing noise

sounds during braking.
Continued driving is possible but

have the brake lining replaced as

soon as possible.
Once new brake linings are installed,

do not brake unnecessarily hard for

the first few journeys.

Brake fluid

9 Warning

Brake fluid is poisonous and

corrosive. Avoid contact with eyes,

skin, fabrics and painted surfaces.

The brake fluid level must be between

the MIN and the MAX marks.
If fluid level is below MIN seek the

assistance of a workshop.
Brake and clutch fluid 3 206.

Vehicle battery

The vehicle battery is maintenance-

free provided that the driving profile

allows sufficient charging of the

battery. Short-distance-driving and

frequent engine starts can discharge

the battery. Avoid the use of

unnecessary electrical consumers.

Batteries do not belong in household

waste. They must be disposed of at

an appropriate recycling collection

point.
Laying up the vehicle for more than

four weeks can lead to battery

discharge. Disconnect the clamp from

the negative terminal of the vehicle

battery.
Ensure the ignition is switched off

before connecting or disconnecting

the vehicle battery.

Replacing the vehicle battery

Note

Any deviation from the instructions

given in this section may lead to

temporary deactivation of the stop-

start system.

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

170

Vehicle care

When the vehicle battery is being

replaced, please ensure that there

are no open ventilation holes in the

vicinity of the positive terminal. If a

ventilation hole is open in this area, it

must be closed off with a dummy cap,

and the ventilation in the vicinity of the

negative terminal must be opened.
Only use vehicle batteries that allow

the fuse box to be mounted above the

vehicle battery.
In vehicles with an AGM (Absorptive

Glass Mat) battery, make sure to

have the battery replaced with

another AGM battery.

An AGM battery can be identified by

the label on the battery. We

recommend the use of an original

Opel vehicle battery.

Note

Using an AGM vehicle battery

different from the original Opel

vehicle battery may result in a lower

performance.

We recommend that you have the

vehicle battery replaced by a

workshop.
Stop-start system 3 127.

Charging the vehicle battery

9 Warning

On vehicles with stop-start

system, ensure that the charging

potential does not exceed

14.6 volts when using a battery

charger. Otherwise the vehicle

battery might be damaged.

Jump starting 3 198.
