WARNING
QReplacing light bulbs
O Turn off the lights. Do not attempt to
replace the bulb immediately after
turning off the lights. The bulbs
become very hot and may cause
burns.
O Do not touch the glass portion of
the light bulb with bare hands.
When it is unavoidable to hold the
glass portion, use and hold with a
clean dry cloth to avoid getting
moisture and oils on the bulb. Also,
if the bulb is scratched or dropped,
it may blow out or crack.
O Fully install light bulbs and any
parts used to secure them. Failure
to do so may result in heat damage,
fire, or water entering the light unit.
This may damage the lights or

cause condensation to build up on
the lens.
Q To prevent damage or fire
Make sure bulbs are fully seated and
locked.

Q Using an emergency hammer* for
emergency escape
The front side windows and rear side
windows, as well as the rear window
can be shattered with an emergency
hammer* used for emergency
escape.
However, an emergency hammer
cannot shatter the windshield as it is

aftermarket accessory manufac-
turer for further information about
an emergency hammer.
QEscaping the vehicle from the
