.

3. Switch the ignition off.

4. Apply the electronic parking brake.

5. For a manual gearbox, engage 1st gear;

for an automatic gearbox, move the gear
lever to 

P

.

6. Use the warning triangle to draw the at-

tention of other road users to your vehicle.

7. Always take the vehicle key with you when

you leave the vehicle.

All turn signals flash simultaneously when the
hazard warning lights are switched on. The
two turn signal turn signal lamps 

 

 and the

turn signal lamp in the switch 

 will flash at

the same time. The simultaneous hazard
warning lights also work when the ignition is
switched off.

Emergency braking warning

If the vehicle brakes suddenly and continu-
ously at a speed of more than 80 km/h (50
mph), the brake light flashes several times per
second to warn the vehicles driving behind. If
you continue braking, the hazard warning
lights will come on automatically when the
vehicle comes to a standstill. They switch off
automatically when the vehicle starts to
move again.

WARNING

The risk of an accident increases if your

vehicle breaks down. Always use the haz-
ard warning lights and a warning triangle to
draw the attention of other road users to
your stationary vehicle.

Due to the high temperatures that the

catalytic converter can reach, never park
in an area where the catalytic converter
could come into contact with highly inflam-
mable materials, for example dry grass or
spilt petrol. This could start a fire.

Note

The battery will run down if the hazard

warning lights are left on for a long time,
even if the ignition is switched off.

The use of the hazard warning lights de-

scribed here is subject to the relevant stat-
utory requirements.

Dynamic headlight range control

The control is not mounted in vehicles with
dynamic headlight range control. The head-
light range is automatically adjusted accord-
ing to the vehicle load status when they are
switched on.

WARNING

Heavy objects in the vehicle may mean
that the headlights dazzle and distract oth-
er drivers. This could result in a serious ac-
cident.

Adjust the light beam to the vehicle load

status so that it does not blind other driv-
ers.

Stick stickers on the headlights or
adapt them

In those countries where vehicles drive on the
other side of the road to the home country,
the asymmetric dipped beam may dazzle
drivers of oncoming vehicles.

The direction of the headlights can be adjus-
ted from the instrument cluster, in the 

Tou-

rist light

 sub-menu of the menu 

Config-

uration> Lights and visibility

.

For those vehicles in which it is not possible to
adjust the headlights from the menu, adhe-
sive strips are used to cover certain parts of
the headlamp cover or the headlights may
be adjusted at a specialised workshop. For
further information, please refer to a special-
ised workshop. SEAT recommends visiting a
technical service.

Note

Use of the 

Tourist light

 option and the

adhesives on the headlights is only allowed
if they are to be used for a short period of
time. To modify the direction of the head-
lights permanently, please take the vehicle
to a specialised workshop. SEAT recom-
mends visiting a technical service centre.

Interval wipe for rear window. The wip-

er will wipe the window approximately
every six seconds.

The rear window wash function is acti-
vated by pressing the lever, and the
rear wiper starts simultaneously.

WARNING

In cold conditions you should not use the
wash/wipe system unless you have
warmed the windscreen with the heating
and ventilation system. The windscreen
washer fluid could otherwise freeze on the
windscreen and obscure your view of the
road.

CAUTION

If the ignition is switched off while the wind-
screen wipers are switched on, they com-
plete their wipe and return to the rest posi-
tion. When the ignition is switched back on,
the windscreen wiper will continue to oper-
ate at the same wiping level. Ice, snow and
other obstacles on the windscreen may
damage the wiper and the windscreen wip-
er motor.

If necessary, remove snow and ice from

the windscreen wipers before starting your
journey.

Do not switch on the windscreen wipers if

the windscreen is dry. Cleaning with the

windscreen wipers while dry can cause
damage.

In icy conditions, always check that the

wiper blades are not frozen to the glass be-
fore using the wipers. In cold weather, it
may help to leave the vehicle parked with
the wipers in service position 

››› 

page 50

.

Note

The windscreen and window wipers only

function when the ignition is switched on
and the bonnet or rear lid, respectively, are
closed.

The interval wipe speed varies according

to the vehicle speed. The faster the vehicle
is moving, the more often the windscreen is
cleaned.

The rear wiper is automatically switched

on when the windscreen wiper is on and the
car is in reverse gear.

Wiper functions

Windscreen wipers performance in differ-
ent situations

If the vehicle is stopped, the activated posi-

tion temporarily moves to the previous posi-
tion.

The air conditioner comes on for approxi-

mately 30 seconds in air recirculation mode
when the windscreen washer is activated, 

to prevent the smell of the windscreen wash-
er fluid entering the inside the vehicle.

When wiping at intervals, the intervals vary

according to the speed. The higher the vehi-
cle speed the shorter the intervals.

Heated windscreen washer jets

The heating only thaws the frozen jets, it does
not thaw the water in the washer hoses.
When the ignition is switched on the heated
windscreen washer jets automatically adjust
the heat depending on the ambient tempera-
ture.

Headlight washer system

The headlight washer cleans the glass of the
headlights and only works when the dipped
beam headlights are on. After switching on
the ignition, the headlights are also washed
when the automatic wiper is activated for the
first time and then every fifth time.

Regularly clean dirt that has become encrus-
ted on the headlights, e.g., remains of insects.

To ensure the headlight washers work cor-
rectly in winter, clean away any snow that
may be present on the jet covers located on
the bumper. If necessary, remove ice with an
anti-ice spray.

Note

The wiper will try to wipe away any ob-

stacles that are on the windscreen. The

126

Visibility

wiper will stop moving if the obstacle
blocks its path. Remove the obstacle and
switch the wiper back on again.

If you stop the vehicle with the wind-

screen wiper in position 1 or 2, it will auto-
matically change to a lower position
speed. The set speed will be resumed when
the vehicle pulls away.

The windscreen will be wiped again ap-

proximately 5 seconds after the wind-
screen washer has been activated, provi-
ded the vehicle is moving (“drip” function).
If you activate the wipers less than 3 sec-
onds after the “drip” function, a new wash
sequence will begin without performing the
last wipe. For the “drip” function to work
again, you have to turn the ignition off and
then on again.

Modified behaviour of the rain sensor

Possible causes of faults and mistaken read-
ings 

on the sensitive surface

 

››› 

Fig. 122

 of the

rain sensor include:

Damaged wipers: a film of water on the

damaged blades may lengthen the activa-
tion time, reduce the washing intervals or re-
sult in a fast and continuous wipe.

Insects: insects on the sensor may trigger

the windscreen wiper.

Salt on the road: in winter, salt spread on

the roads may cause an excessively long
wipe when the windscreen is almost dry.

Dirt: dry dust, wax, coating on glass (Lotus

effect) or traces of detergent (car wash) may
reduce the effectiveness of the rain sensor or
make it react more slowly, later or not at all.

Windscreen crack: the impact of a stone

will trigger a single wipe cycle with the rain
sensor on. Next the rain sensor detects the re-
duction in the sensitive surface area and
adapts accordingly. The behaviour of the
sensor will vary with the size of the damage
caused by the stone.

WARNING

The rain sensor may not detect enough rain
to switch on the wipers.

If necessary, switch on the wipers man-

ually when water on the windscreen ob-
structs visibility.

Operation

Note

Clean the sensitive surface of the rain

sensor regularly and check the blades for
damage 

›››

To remove wax and coatings, we recom-

mend a window cleaner containing alco-
hol.

Do not put stickers on the windscreen in

front of the rain sensor. This may cause
sensor disruption or faults.

The automatic anti-dazzle function is deacti-
vated when reverse gear is engaged or the
interior or reading lights are on.

WARNING

In the event that an automatic anti-dazzle
rear vision mirror breaks, an electrolyte flu-
id may leak. This could cause irritation to
the skin, eyes and respiratory organs. If you
come into contact with this liquid, it must
be rinsed with large quantities of water. If
necessary, get medial help.

CAUTION

In the event that an automatic anti-dazzle
rear vision mirror breaks, an electrolyte flu-
id may leak. This liquid attacks plastic sur-
faces. Clean it with a wet sponge as soon
as possible.

Note

If the light falling on the interior mirror is

obstructed (e.g. with the sun blind), the an-
ti-dazzle mirror with automatic adjustment
will not operate perfectly.

When the interior lights are on or reverse

gear engaged, the mirrors do not darken

WARNING

Convex or wide-angle exterior mirrors give
a larger field of vision. However, they make
objects look smaller and further away than
they really are. If you use these mirrors to
estimate the distance to vehicles behind
you when changing lane, you could mis-
judge the distance. Risk of accident!

WARNING

Fold and unfold the exterior mirror, taking
care to avoid injuries.

Only fold or unfold the exterior mirror

when there is no-one in the way of the mir-
ror.

When moving the mirror, take care not to

trap fingers between the mirror and the
mirror bracket.

CAUTION

If one of the mirror housings is knocked

out of position (e.g. when parking), the mir-
rors must first be fully retracted with the
electric control. Do not readjust the mirror
housing by hand, as this will interfere with
the mirror adjuster function.

Before washing the vehicle in an auto-

matic car wash, please make sure to re-
tract the exterior mirrors to prevent them
from being damaged. Electrically retracta-
ble exterior mirrors must not be folded in or
out by hand. Always use the electrical
power control.

Note

If the electrical adjustment should fail to

operate, both of the mirrors can be adjus-
ted by hand by lightly pressing the edge of
the mirror glass.

The fold-in function on the exterior mir-

rors will not activate at speeds over
40 km/h (25 mph).

Operation

WARNING

Incorrect seat adjustment may lead to ac-
cidents and severe injuries.

Only adjust the seats when the vehicle is

stationary, as the seats could move unex-
pectedly while the vehicle is in motion and
you could lose control of the vehicle. Fur-
thermore, an incorrect position is adopted
when adjusting the seat.

Adjust the height, position and inclination

of the front seats only when their move-
ment area is empty.

Make sure there are no objects in that

area.

Make sure that the movement and lock-

ing areas of the seats are clean.

WARNING

Incorrectly using upholstery and seat cov-
ers might cause an accidental activation of
the electrical seat adjustment system and
make it move unexpectedly while driving.
This might cause loss of control of the vehi-
cle and thus accidents or injuries. More-
over, the electrical components of the front
seats might be damaged.

Never attach or place seat upholstery or

covers on the electric controls.

Never use upholstery or seat covers that

have not been explicitly authorised for the
seats of the vehicle.

Headrest

Introduction

The possibilities for the adjustment and disas-
sembly of the headrests are described below.
Always make sure that the seats are correctly
adjusted 

››› 

page 12

.

All seats are equipped with a headrest. The
rear headrests have been designed exclu-
sively for the corresponding seat of the sec-
ond or third row. Therefore, never mount them
on any other seat.

Correct adjustment of headrest

Adjust the headrest so that its upper edge is
at the same level as the top of your head and
under no circumstances below eye level.
Keep the back of your head always as close
to the headrest as possible.

In vehicles with horizontally adjustable headr-
ests on the front seats, move the headrest as
close as possible to the back of the head.

Adjusting the headrest for short people

Lower the headrest completely, even if your
head is below its upper edge. In the lowest
position, there may be a small distance be-
tween the headrest and the backrest.

Adjusting the headrest for tall people

Push the headrest up as far as it will go.

WARNING

If travelling with the headrests removed or
improperly adjusted, the risk of severe or
fatal injuries in the event of accidents and
sudden braking or manoeuvres increases.

Always travel with the headrest correctly

installed and adjusted.

To decrease the risk of cervical injuries in

the event of an accident, adjust the head-
rest correctly based on your height, always
making sure that its upper edge is at the
same height as the top of the head, but
never below eye level. Keep the back of
your head always as close to the headrest
as possible and centred.

Never adjust the headrest while the vehi-

cle is in motion.

Under no circumstances should the rear

passengers travel while the headrests are
in the non-use position.

»

133

Operation

CAUTION

When assembling and disassembling the
headrests, do not let them meet the top lin-
ing of the vehicle, the back rest of the front
seat or other parts of the vehicles. If not,
this could damage the vehicle.

Operation

Never use the convenient entry function

when the vehicle is in motion.

Avoid trapping or damaging the seat belt

when folding the rear seats back.

Keep your hands, fingers, feet and other

body parts out of the hinges and the seat
locking mechanism when folding and un-
folding.

Mats or other objects can be caught in

the hinges of the seat backrests or rear
seat. This could prevent the seat backrest
from locking safely when positioned up-
right.

All seat backrests must engage correctly

for the seat belts on the rear seats to work
properly. When the seat backrest of an oc-
cupied seat is not correctly locked in place,
the passenger can be thrust forward with
the seat backrest in case of sudden brak-
ing, sudden manoeuvres or an accident.

A red mark on the side of the seat

 indicates that the seat back-

rest is not engaged. The mark is no longer
visible when it is correctly engaged.

If the seat backrest or seat are folded

down and are not correctly locked in place,
no passenger should use them.

When getting in or out, never lean or hold

onto the folded seat on the second row of
seats.

WARNING

If child seats are fitted to all the seats in the
second row then it is possible that the
seats of this row cannot be folded down
from the third row of seats in the event of an
accident. In the event of an emergency,
passengers in the third row of seats will not
be able to leave the vehicle or to help
themselves.

Child seats should not occupy all the

seats of the second row if other passengers
are to occupy the third row.

CAUTION

Before folding down the rear seat back-

rest for returning it to its position, adjust the
front seats so that the headrests and seat
backrests do not hit each other when fold-
ing and unfolding.

Any objects located in the footwell of the

second row of seats may be damaged on
folding the rear seat forwards. Remove any
objects before folding the seat down.
