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 top and engage

downwards.

Appearance care

Exterior care

Locks

The locks are lubricated at the factory

using a high quality lock cylinder

grease. Use a de-icing agent only

when absolutely necessary, as this

has a degreasing effect and impairs

lock function. After using a 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. Restrictions for

filmed or matt painted body parts or

decor tapes, see "Polishing and

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

199

If using a car wash, comply with the

car 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.
Clean bright metal mouldings with a

cleaning solution approved for

aluminium to avoid damages.

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 painted parts of 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.

Unpainted plastic body parts must not

be treated with wax or polishing

agents.
Matt filmed body parts or decor tapes

must not be polished, to avoid

gleaming. Do not use hot wax

programmes in automatic car washes

if the vehicle is equipped with these

parts.
Matt painted decor parts, e.g. mirror

housing cover, must not be polished.

Otherwise these parts would become

agleam or the colour would be

dissolved.

Windows and wiper blades

Switch off wipers before handling in

their areas.
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.

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

200

Vehicle care

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.
Clean smearing wiper blades with a

soft cloth and window cleaner.
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.

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.

Interior care

Interior and upholstery

Only clean the vehicle interior,

including the instrument panel fascia

and panelling, with a dry cloth or

interior cleaner.

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

Vehicle care

201

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.
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.

vehicle.

Recommended fluids,

lubricants and parts

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

petrol engines. If it is unavailable,

engine oils of other listed qualities

have to be used. Recommendations

for petrol 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

 207.

Topping up engine oil

Caution

In case of any spilled oil, wipe it up

and dispose it properly.

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 oils for all petrol

engines with only ACEA quality is

prohibited, since it can cause engine

damage under certain operating

conditions.

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

204

Service and maintenance

Select the appropriate engine oil

based on its quality and on the

minimum ambient temperature

3

 207.

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 3 207.
All of the recommended viscosity

grades are suitable for high ambient

temperatures.

Coolant and antifreeze

Use only silicate-free long life coolant

(LLC) antifreeze. 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.

Washer fluid

Use only washer fluid approved for

the vehicle to prevent damage of

wiper blades, paintwork, plastic and

rubber parts. Consult a workshop.

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.
