Data on the replacement fuse must

match the data on the defective fuse.
There are three fuse boxes in the

vehicle:

compartment

● in left-hand drive vehicles, in the

interior behind the storage

compartment, or, in right-hand

drive vehicles, behind the

glovebox

● behind a cover on the left side of

the load compartment

Before replacing a fuse, turn off the

respective switch and the ignition.
A blown fuse can be recognised by its

melted wire. Do not replace the fuse

until the cause of the fault has been

remedied.
Some functions are protected by

several fuses.
Fuses may also be inserted without

existence of a function.

Wheels and tyres

Tyre condition, wheel condition

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.
In accordance with country-specific

regulations, affix the speed sticker in

the driver's field of view.
4-door notchback

Tyre size 205/65 R16 is only suitable

as a winter tyre.
All engines except A14XER,

B14XER, B14NEL, B14NET,

B14NET LPG, B16XER:

Tyre size 215/50 R17 is only suitable

as a winter tyre.

Tyre designations

E.g. 215/60 R 16 95 H
215 : tyre width, mm

60 : cross-section ratio (tyre height

to tyre width), %

R

: belt type: Radial

RF : type: RunFlat

16 : wheel diameter, inches

95 : load index e.g. 95 is equivalent

to 690 kg

H

: speed code letter

Speed code letter:
Q : up to 160 km/h

S : up to 180 km/h

T : up to 190 km/h

H : up to 210 km/h

V : up to 240 km/h

W : up to 270 km/h
Choose a tyre appropriate for the

maximum speed of your vehicle.

The maximum speed is achievable at

kerb weight with driver (75 kg) plus

125 kg payload. Optional equipment

could reduce the maximum speed of

the vehicle.
Performance 3 265.

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.

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.
