and caps

» page 224

.

When fitting a wheel with directional tyres, ensure that the direction of rota-

tion is correct 

» page 217

.

All bolts must be clean and must turn easily. If screws are corroded and diffi-

cult to move, these must be replaced.

WARNING

Undo the wheel bolts just a little (about one turn), provided the vehicle

has not yet been jacked up. Otherwise the wheel could come loose and fall

off – risk of injury.

Under no circumstances must the bolts be greased or oiled - cause an ac-

cident.

Subsequent steps

After changing the wheel, the following work should be carried out.

Stow the replaced wheel in the well under the floor covering of the luggage

compartment and secure with a locking screw.

Stow the tool kit in the space provided and secure using the strap.

Check tyre pressure on the mounted wheel and adjust if necessary and, with

vehicles with tyre pressure monitoring, save the tyre pressure values in the

system 

» page 193

.

Have the tightening torque of the wheel bolts checked as soon as possible.

The prescribed tightening torque is 120 Nm.

Replace the damaged tyre. Repairing the tyre is not recommended.

WARNING

Tightening torque which is too high can damage the threads and this can

result in permanent deformation of the contact surfaces on the rim. Where

tightening torque is too low, the wheels may become loose while driving -

risk of accident. Therefore, drive cautiously and only at a moderate speed

until the tightening torque has been checked.

Set the tyre pressure back to the correct value 

» page 217

.

Continue driving carefully to the nearest specialist garage at a maximum

speed of 80 km/h (50 mph).

WARNING

A tyre filled with sealant has the same driving characteristics as a standard

tyre. The following guidelines must therefore be observed.

Do not drive faster than 80 km/h (50 mph).

Avoid accelerating at full throttle, sharp braking and fast cornering.

Jump-starting

Introduction

WARNING

The following instructions must be followed at all times when working on

the engine compartment 

» page 209

.

When handling the vehicle battery, the following warnings must be ob-

served 

» page 214

.

A discharged vehicle battery can freeze at temperatures just below 0 °C.

If the battery is frozen, do not carry out a jump start with the battery of

another vehicle – risk of explosion and injury!

Never jump-start vehicle batteries with an electrolyte level that is too low

– risk of explosion and caustic burns!

Jump-starting using the battery from another vehicle

Fig. 267  Jump-starting:  - discharged battery,  - power-supplying

battery/ground point of the engine for the START-STOP system

Read and observe   on page 228 first.

If, because of a discharged battery, it is not possible to start the engine, the

battery of another vehicle can be used to start the engine. To do this, jump-

start cables are required which have a sufficiently large cross-section and insu-

lated terminal clamps.
The rated voltage of the two batteries must be 12 V. The capacity (Ah) of the

power-supplying battery must not be significantly lower than the capacity of

the discharged battery.

The jump-start cables must be attached in the following sequence.

Attach clamp 

1

 to the positive terminal of the discharged battery.

Attach clamp 

2

 to the positive terminal of the power-supplying battery.

Attach clamp 

3

 to the negative terminal of the power-supplying battery.

For vehicles with the START-STOP system, attach clamp 

4

 to the ground

point of the engine 

A

 

» Fig. 267

.

For vehicles without the START-STOPsystem, attach clamp 

4

 to a solid

metal part firmly attached to the engine block or directly to the engine block.

Starting engine

Start the engine on the vehicle providing the power and allow it to idle.

Initiate the starting process in the vehicle with the discharged battery.

If the engine does not start within 10 s, then cancel the starting procedure

and repeat after half a minute.

Detach the jumper cables in the exact reverse order that they were attach-

ed.

228

Do-it-yourself

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

WARNING

Never clamp the jump cable to the negative terminal of the discharged

battery - risk of explosion.

The non-insulated parts of the terminal clamps must never touch each

other – risk of short circuit.

The jump-start cable connected to the positive terminal of the battery

must not come into contact with electrically conducting parts of the vehi-

cle – risk of short circuit.

Position the jump cables so that they cannot be caught in rotating parts in

the engine compartment - danger of injuries and the risk of vehicle dam-

age.

Towing the vehicle

Information about the towing process

Fig. 268  Braided tow ropes/spiral tow rope

To tow with a tow rope, use only a braided synthetic fibre rope 

» Fig. 268

 - 

» 

.

Attach the tow rope or the tow bar to the towing eyes at the front

» page 230

towing eyes at the rear 

» page 230

 or to the towing device of the

trailer device 

» page 195

.

Conditions for towing.

Cars with automatic gearboxes must not be towed with the rear wheels

raised - there is a risk of gearbox damage!
If the gearbox has no oil, your vehicle must be towed with the front axle

raised clear of the ground or on a breakdown vehicle or trailer.

The maximum towing speed is 50 km/h.
The vehicle must be transported on a special breakdown vehicle or trailer

if it is not possible to tow the vehicle in the way described or if the towing

distance is greater than 50 km.

Driver of the tow vehicle

On vehicles with manual transmission, engage gear slowly when starting.

On vehicles with automatic transmission, accelerate with particular care.

Only then, approach correctly when the rope is taut.

Driver of the towed vehicle

If possible, the vehicle should be towed with the engine running. The brake

booster and power steering only operate if the engine is running, otherwise

much greater force has to be applied to the brake pedal and more power has

to be expended for steering.

If it is not possible to start the engine, switch on the ignition so that the

steering wheel does not lock and so that the turn signal lights, windscreen

wipers and windscreen washer system can be used.

Take the vehicle out of gear or move the selector lever into position N if the

vehicle is fitted with an automatic gearbox.

Keep the tow rope taut at all times during the towing procedure.

WARNING

Spiral tow ropes must not be used for towing 

» Fig. 268

- , the towing

eye may unscrew out of the vehicle – risk of accident.

The tow rope should not be twisted - risk of accident.

CAUTION

Do not tow-start the engine – There is a risk of damaging the engine. The

battery from another vehicle can be used as a jump-start aid
