All Wheel Drive (AWD) is an a ctive-ondema nd sy stem that eng ages
autom atic ally with no action req uired by
the driver. Depending on the driving
environment, the v ehicle switches between
two-w heel drive and four-wheel drive to
give the vehicle m ore traction a nd stability
when necessary.
If the front wheels b egin to slip, the rear
wheels will automatically begin to drive the
vehicle as required .
More torque is transferred to the wheels
that ha ve the most traction, so the vehicle
ha s optimum grip at all tim es.
There m ay be a slight eng agem ent noise
during hard use.
As well as enabling the vehic le to b e driven
off-road, this system a lso enables the
vehicle to be driven on normal roads
without incurring exc essive tyre and
drivetrain wear or causing poor control.

On-road driving
The increased traction of All Wheel Driv e
vehic les offers greater driving control in
adv erse road conditions, particularly
heav y snow and ice. However, All Wheel
Drive vehicles are not "skid-proof" and do
not dec rease stopping distances.
All Wheel Driv e v ehicles have a higher
centre of gravity tha n conv entional
vehic les. Always ap proa ch curv es at an
appropriate d riv ing speed. Do not attempt
to go as fast through turns as you might in
a conventional v ehicle.
Strong crosswinds can affect the normal
steering of the vehicle. Drive slower under
strong c rosswind cond itions.
Alw ays ex ercise c aution when in slippery
conditions (c aused by sand, grav el, wa ter,
snow or ice on the road) in order to
maintain vehicle control.

Good, technically correc t and ec onomical
driving ensures m aximum d urab ility and
performa nc e for your vehicle.
The fuel supp ly is autom atically shut-off
during overrun, e.g. when the vehicle is
being driven down long gradients or during
brak ing. To enable the ov errun cut-off to
come into action, do not accelerate or
declutch during ov errun.
Drivin g hints
Engine rpm
Change down
Battery c are whilst driving
Under all driving conditions, drive in a
favourable engine speed rang e.
When decreasing speed, shift down into
the next lowest gear. Do not slip the clutch
with a high-revving engine. This is
especially important when hill climb ing.
When driving slowly or when the v ehicle is
stationary , e.g. in slow urban traffic,
stop-and-go traffic or traffic jam s, turn off
all unnecessary electric al loads where
possible (e. g. heated rear window,
auxiliary headlights).
Warming up
Allow engine to warm up whilst driving . Do
not warm it up by letting it run at idling
speed. Do not app ly full throttle until
engine reaches op erating temperature.
After a cold sta rt, automatic
transm ission 3 does not shift into higher
gears until higher engine speeds have been
rea ched. This allow s the ca talytic converter
to quickly reach the temp erature required
for optimum pollutant reduction.
Correct gear selection
Do not race y our eng ine whilst in neutral or
with a low gear selected. Driving too fast in
individual gears or drive rang es as well as
stop -a nd -go traffic increase engine wear
and fuel consumption.
Clutch operation
Alw ays dep ress the clutch ped al hard to

containing additives.
This in turn inc reases fuel consumption and
reduces the m aximum speed of the v ehicle.
When the vehicle is new, there is increased
friction between the engine and

several thousand miles / kilometres. This
also increases fuel consumption.
Petrol with too low a n oc ta ne number can

Fuel fo r diesel en gines
Diesel engines must be operated only on
commercially ava ila ble diesel fuel meeting

Since January 2004, some oil companies
have mixed their diesel fuel with up to 5%
Bio fuel (FAME = Fatty Acid Methyl Esters)
like RME (Rape-O il Methy l Ester). This is in
accordance with the c urrent DIN EN 590
and does not harm the fuel injection
system. The characteristics of a diesel fuel
mixed up with 5% Bio fuel (FAME) do not
differ from conventional diesel fuel a nd do
not influence the vehicle’s drivea bility .
Im portant : Diesel fuel m ix ed with 5% FAME
according to DIN EN 590 m ust not be
confused w ith 100% Bio Diesel, which is not
to be used in Vauxhall engines.
The flow and filterab ility of diesel fuels are
tem perature-d epend ent.
Diesel fuels with improved low temperature
properties are therefore av ailable on the
market during the w inter months. Make

Additives can be used with d iesel fuels with

Brak e assi st
Rapid powerful applica tion of the brake
pedal automatically applies m aximum
brak ing force amp lification to achieve
shortest possible b ra king dista nce under
full braking (brak e assist).
Maintain steady pressure on the b rake
pedal for as long as full-on brak ing is to
continue. When the brake pedal is
released, the m aximum b ra ke force
am plification is taken away .
The b ra king sy stem com prises two
separate brake circuits.
If one brake circuit should fail, the vehicle
can still be braked with the second
rem aining circ uit.
If this happens, the brake ped al must be
fully depressed with greater p edal
pressure. The distance required for braking
will be greater.
If at any time during driving the b rake
pedal can be depressed further than
normal, the v ehicle repeatedly pulls to one
side und er braking, or brak e noise is heard,
consult a workshop.
In order to utilise the full pedal trav el particula rly in the event of a brake circuit
fa ult - there m ust be no mats in the area of
the pedals.
With the engine stopped, the brake servo
assista nce is discontinued after the brake
pedal ha s b een depressed once or twice.
The braking effect is not red uced but
increased foot pressure will b e necessa ry .
Ta ke extra care w hen the v ehicle is being
tow ed.
Check the brak e lights before sta rting out
on a journey. Shortly after the start of eac h
journey , the brake system should be tested
for its effectiveness at low speed and
without inconveniencing other road users,
especially if the bra kes are wet, e. g. after
washing y our v ehicle.
Excessive b ra king when going d ow nhill can
cause brak es to temp orarily overheat. Shift
to a lower gear rather than continuously
applying brak es.
The brake fluid lev el should be checked
regularly - see p age 188.

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) u
The AB S continually monitors the vehicle's
brak e system and prev ents the wheels from
locking, irresp ective of the road condition
and ty re grip.
It starts to regulate the braking pressure as
soon a s a wheel shows a tendency to lock.
The vehicle rema ins steerable, even in the
event of very heavy braking, e. g. on bends
or when swerving to avoid an obstac le.
Even in the case of full-on brak ing , the ABS
ma kes it possible to drive round an
obstacle without releasing the brak es.
ABS control is mad e ap parent throug h a
pulse in the brake pedal and the noise of
the regulation process.
9 Warnin g
For optimum braking, keep the brak e
peda l fully dep ressed throughout the
braking process, despite the fa ct that the
peda l is pulsating. Do not reduce the
pressure on the pedal.
Do not let this special safety feature
tempt you into ta king risk s w hen driving.
Tra ffic safety can only b e ac hieved by
adopting a responsible d riv ing sty le.
If ABS control indicator u illum inates
during driv ing along with brake system
control indicator 4 , there is a serious
fa ult in the brak e system. Have the system
checked imm ediately by a workshop.
9 Warnin g
If there is a fault in the ABS, the wheels
may tend to lock in the event of unusually
heavy braking. This may cause the
vehicle to sw erve. The benefits of the ABS
are lost.
Y ou can continue driving, provided y ou

Use of unsuitab le tyres or wheels m ay
lead to accidents and render the vehicle
unroa dworthy .
If tyres of a different size to those fitted at
the factory are used (this includes winter
tyres), the electronic speedometer m ay
possibly need to be reprogrammed to
ensure that the speed d isplay ed is correct.
Vehicles with tyre pressure m oni toring
system 3
When using w inter tyres or when switching
to different tyre sizes, sensors for the ty re
pressure monitoring system can b e fitted at
a la ter date by a workshop upon request.
O therwise, the system would not indicate
tyre pressure deviations.
Tyre pressure monitoring sy stem 3 –
see page 142.
Fitti ng new tyr es
N ew ty res should be fitted in pairs, or for
preference in sets. Mak e sure that both
tyres on an axle are:
z the same siz e
z the same design
z the same make
z and have the same tread pattern.
9 Warnin g
We recom mend that you consult your
Vauxhall Authorised Repa irer to have the
tyres replaced. Your Vauxhall Authorised
Repairer knows the legal reg ulations
conc erning the disposa l of tyres and
therefore protects the env ironment and
your health.
Wheels, tyres
Fit direc tional tyres such that they roll in the
direc tion of travel. The rolling d irection is
indicated by a symbol (e.g. a n arrow) on
the sidewall.
Tyres fitted opposing the rolling direction
(e. g. when a tyre is chang ed) should be
refitted a s soon as possible. This is the only
way to obtain full benefit from the design
properties of the tyre.
O bserve legal requirements w hen
disposing of ty res.
Some brands of tyres have a beaded edge
for alloy wheels to protect against
dam age. If wheel trims are used on steel
wheels with bead ed-edge tyres, the
follow ing procedure must b e followed :
z Wheel trim s and tyres that a re approved
by Vauxhall for the respective vehicle
and comp ly w ith all of the relev ant wheel
and tyre comb ination requirements must
be used.
z If the wheel trims and tyres used are not
Vauxhall-approved, the tyres m ust not
hav e a bea ded edge.

Tyre inflation pressure
Check tyre pressures, inc luding the spare
wheel 3, at lea st every 14 days and prior to
any long journey. The tyres should be
checked when cold , as warm tyres produce
inac curate rea ding s. Don't forget to check
the spare.
Use the v alve cap k ey 3 to mak e
unscrewing the valve cap s easier. The key
is located on the inside of the tank flap.
Ty re p ressures - see pa ge 207.
Increased pressure resulting from ty re
warm-up must not be reduced, otherwise
the pressure ma y drop b elow the
permissib le minimum when the ty res cool
Picture n o: s0017213T.tif
After hav ing checked the tyre pressures,
securely tighten the valve caps.
Incorrect inflation pressures will impair
safety, vehicle handling, comfort and fuel
econom y and w ill increase tyre wear.
If the pressure is too low , this can result in
consid erable tyre warm-up and interna l
dam age, lead ing to tread separation and
even to ty re blow-out at high speeds.

Tr ead depth
Check tread depth regularly. S hould the
front tyres show greater wear tha n the rea r
tyres, have both front wheels exchanged
with the rea r wheels so that the ty res with
deeper tread are on the front axle.
For safety reasons, tyres should be
replaced when their tread depth has worn
down to 2 to 3 mm . The legal p ermissible
minimum tread d epth (1.6 mm) has been
reached when the tread has worn down as
far as one of the wear indicators.
For information on how to change a wheel,
see p age 167.
A num ber of wear indicators are spaced at
equal intervals around the ty re within the
trea d. Their p osition is indica ted by
ma rk ings on the tyre sidewall.
Check the ty re pressures - see page 207.

maximum speed , whichev er is lower.
Tyre chains must not be used on the
temporary spare wheel. If y ou need to use
tyre chains after suffering a flat front tyre,
fit the temporary spa re wheel on the rear
ax le and transfer one of the rear w heels to
the front ax le.
When tra velling on roads that are free of
snow, they ma y only be used for brief
periods sinc e they are subject to rapid wear
on a hard road and may snap.
For notes on the tem porary spare wheel see page 167.
Av oid sharp turns, bumps and holes and

Notes on tempor ary spa re wheel
z Using a temporary spa re wheel m ay
cha nge the driving behav iour of the
vehicle, particularly if using winter
ty res 3. Replace defective tyre as quic kly
as possible, balance wheel and fit to
z Fit only one temp orary sp are wheel.
Notes on directional tyres 3
Ty res with a p rescrib ed rotating direction
can only achiev e their maxim um
performance if they a re fitted in the
prescribed rotating d irection. If a tyre or
spare wheel is fitted that is rotating in the
wrong direction due to a puncture, the
following must be noted:
z Ta ke c urv es slowly .
z The handling of the vehicle may be
different. Replace defective tyres a s soon
as possible, have wheel ba la nced and
fitted to the vehicle.
z Do not use the tem porary spare wheel
for a lengthy period.
z Do not drive faster than 50 m ph
(80 k m/h).
z Replace tem pora ry spare wheel with full
specification w heel without delay.
z Drive particularly carefully on wet and
snow-c ov ered road surfac es.
z When temp orary spare wheel is fitted, do
not tak e the vehicle through a n
automa tic ca r w ash with guid e rails. The
temporary spare wheel ma y get caught
on the rails, causing dam age to the tyre,
wheel and other vehicle pa rts.
For more informa tion on tyres with a
prescribed rotating d irection –
see p age 149.
z Do not d riv e faster than 50 mph
(80 km/h).
z Ty re chains are not permitted on the
temporary spare wheel.
If tyre cha ins are necessary after a front
wheel puncture, fit the temporary spare
wheel to the rear and a rea r wheel to the
front. C heck ty re p ressure and adjust if
necessary - see pa ge 207.
z Follow the temporary spare wheel
instruc tions on pages 152, 170, 206.

Checking and topping up fluids
Pict ure no: s11814.t if
A note on safety
To avoid the possibility of injury, only ca rry
out engine compartment checks (e. g.
check ing the b ra ke fluid level or the eng ine
oil lev el) when the ignition is switched off.
9 Warning
The cooling fan may be op erated by a
thermoswitch a nd can therefore sta rt to
op erate unexpectedly ev en when the
ig nition is sw itched off. Risk of injury .
Elec tronic ignition system s generate very
high v oltag es. Do not touch the ignition
system ; high voltage can be fatal.
To aid identification, the engine oil filler
cap, the coolant ex pansion tank cap , the
lid of the fluid container for the windscreen
wash system and the ha nd le of the oil
gauge (dip stick) m ay be coloured yellow.
Engine o il
Information on engine oils is availab le in
the Serv ice Booklet.
Engine oil level and consum ption
It is normal for every engine to consume
some oil, and it is som etimes necessary to
check and top up the eng ine oil lev el
between oil changes.
9 Warnin g
Do not allow the engine oil level to d rop
below the minimum level.
For this reason, the engine oil level should
be chec ked every 300 miles (500 km) or
before starting a long trip.
Service plan, maintenance

The illustra tions show checking and
rep lenishing the oil in the Z 24 XE petrol
and Z 20 DMH d iesel engines respectiv ely.
To check the level, rem ov e the dipstick
from the dipstick tub e, wipe it clean and
re-insert it as far a s it w ill go. After p ulling
the d ipstick out a gain, chec k the oil level
ensuring it is betw een the low er and upper

Engine oil l ev el chec k and topping up
The oil lev el m ust be check ed with the
vehicle horizontal and with the engine
(w hich m ust be at operating temp erature)
switched off. Wait a few minutes before
checking the level to allow the norm al oil
accumulation in the engine to drain back
into the oil pan.
Top up if the oil level ha s d ropp ed to the
"add oil" lower m ark or MIN mark.
The oil lev el m ust not go abov e the upper
(or M AX) m ark on the dipstick. This w ould
lead, for exa mple, to increased oil
consumption, excessive forma tion of
carbon residue and a possible risk of
damage to the catalytic converter or

When replenishing, attempt to use the
same type of oil as used at the last oil
C apacities - see pa ge 208.
A stabilization of the oil consum ption will
not take place until the vehicle has been
driven several thousand miles. Only then
can the actual degree of consumption be
If consum ption exceeds more than 0.5 litre
every 600 miles (1000 km ) after this
running-in period, consult a workshop.

Important: It is the owner’s responsibility
to maintain the correc t level of an
appropriate qua lity oil in the engine.
Service plan, mainten ance
9 Warning
Used engine oil filters and empty oil
containers should not be disposed of as
domestic refuse. We recommend that
you entrust oil and oil filter c hanges to a
Vauxhall Authorised R epairer, who is
familiar with legal requirements
reg arding disposal of used oil and can
thus help to protect b oth the environm ent
and y our health.
Picture no: s0013661.ti f
O il change, oil filter change
Engine oil changes are to be carried out
depending on time intervals or mileage
intervals, since oil loses its lubrication
properties not only through engine
opera tion but also through ageing.
We recommend that you use genuine
Vauxhall oil filters.
Engine oil is a danger to health; a void
prolonged contact with skin a nd wash
exposed a reas thoroughly.
Remember to reset the engine oil life
monitor 3 whenever the engine oil is
cha ng ed - see next column.
Engine oil life monit or 3
The engine oil life monitor lets you know
when to chang e the oil. Based on driv ing
conditions, the mileage at which an oil
change will be indicated can vary
consid erably .
For the sy stem to work properly, it must be
reset every time the oil is changed. Consult
a work shop.
When the system has calculated that oil life
has been diminished, c ontrol indicator C
illuminates in the instrum ent cluster see page 25. Engine power may b e
decreased. C hange oil immediately.
It is the owner’s responsibility to maintain
the correct level of a n appropriate q uality
oil in the engine.
Service plan, maintenance
Check d iesel fuel filter at shorter intervals if
the vehicle is sub jected to ex treme
op erating c onditions such as high humidity
(p rim arily in coastal areas), ex tremely hig h
or low outside temp eratures and
substantia lly vary ing daytime and
night-time tem peratures.
If water in diesel fuel control indicator 6
illuminates in the instrument cluster, drain
the water immediately - see page 25.
Picture no: s0013656.ti f
Diesel fuel filter
Drain diesel fuel filter of residual w ater at
every engine oil cha nge.
Place a container underneath the filter
housing. Turn drain plug, loca ted on the
left of the filter housing, a nticlockwise
using a suitable screwd riv er to drain off the
The d iesel fuel filter is drained as soon as
diesel emerges from the port. Retighten the
drain plug by turning it clockwise.
With engine switched off, turn ignition key
to O N, wa it approx. 5 seconds, and turn
key to LOC K to perform priming op eration.
Perform this operation 3 times or m ore
while the engine is switc hed off, to av oid air
entering the fuel line.
During operation, the sy stem is
pressurized. The temperature may
therefore rise to over 100 °C .
The anti-freeze provides excellent
corrosion protection for the cooling a nd
hea ting sy stem, as well as freeze
protec tion down to -28 °C .
C ertain types of anti-freeze can lead to
eng ine dam age. We therefore strongly
recommend the use of anti-freeze tha t has
been ap prov ed by Vauxhall.
9 Warnin g
Anti-freeze is a danger to health; it must
therefore be kept in the original container
and out of the reach of children.
Service plan, mainten ance
Anti-fr eeze a nd corrosion protect ion
Before the start of the cold weather season,
have the coolant checked by a workshop
for correct concentration. The amount of
anti-freez e m ust provide protection down
to approx. –28 °C. If the anti-freeze
concentration is too low, this reduces
protection from freezing and c orrosion.
Top up anti-freeze if necessary.
9 Warnin g
Allow engine to cool down before
removing c oolant filler cap. I f steam is
visib le, m ove away from the vehicle until
the eng ine is cool.
Remov e filler cap carefully so that
pressure can escap e slowly, otherw ise
there is a risk of scalding.
If coolant loss is topped up with
demineralised w ater, hav e a nti-freeze
concentration checked a nd more
anti-freez e ad ded as necessary.
Picture n o: s0013655.tif
Coolant lev el
Hardly a ny losses occur since the cooling
sy stem is sealed and it is thus rarely
necessary to top up the coolant.
The coolant lev el in the exp ansion tank
should be betw een the MIN and MA X
marks when the sy stem is cold. It rises at
engine operating tem perature and drops
again when the engine cools down.
If the level fa lls below the MIN mark, the
coolant m ust be rep lenished.
Top up w ith a mix of 56% demineralised
water a nd 44% anti-freez e specified for use
with y our v ehicle.
Do not use tap water, alcohol or methanol
anti-freeze to top up coolant level.
In extrem ely cold conditions, use a mix of
50% anti-freeze specified for use with your
vehicle a nd 50% demineralised water.
After topping up, have the anti-freeze
concentration check ed and anti-freeze
add ed if necessa ry . Elimina te the cause of
the coola nt loss. Consult a workshop.
When closing , tighten coolant filler ca p as
far as it will go.

Washin g
The paintwork of your v ehicle is exposed to
env ironmenta l influences, e. g. continuous
changes in weather conditions, ind ustrial
waste gases and dust or tha wing sa lts, so
wash and wax your v ehicle regularly. When
using a utoma tic car washes, select a
programme which includes wax ing.
Also wash aluminium trim parts, av oiding
the use of abrasive materials such as
autom otive or chrome polish, steam or
caustic soap. Washing with water is
normally sufficient.
Observ e national regulations.
Bird droppings, dead insects, resin, pollen
and the like should be cleaned off
immediately , as they contain aggressive
constituents which can cause paint
dam age.
Wax your vehicle regularly, in pa rticular
after it has been washed using C ar
Shampoo and at the latest when water no
longer forms bead s on the paintwork ,
otherwise the p aintwork will dry out.
If using a car w ash, comply w ith the
pertinent instructions of the ca r wash
manufacturer. The windsc reen w iper and

Also wax aluminium trim parts, ed ges and
folds on op ened d oors and flaps as well a s
the areas they cov er.
Do not use high-pressure jet cleaners.
If y ou w ash y our v ehicle by hand, make
sure that the insides of the wing s a re also
thoroughly rinsed out. Do not use
household dishwashing liquid to avoid
rem ov ing wax from the paintwork.
Clean edges and folds on opened doors
and flaps as well as the areas they cover.
Thoroughly rinse off and leather-off the
vehic le. R inse leather frequently. Use
separate lea thers for pa int a nd window
surfaces: remnants of wa x on the windows
will impa ir vision.
Polishing is necessa ry only if the paint
ha s b ecome dull or if solid deposits ha ve
become attached to it.
Pa intwork polish with silic one form s
a protective film, making wax ing
unnec essary .
Plastic body parts should not be treated
with wax a nd polish.
Use Metallic Paintw ork Wa x on vehic les
with a metallic-effect paint finish.
Use a pH-neutral w heel c leaning agent to
clean the wheels.
Avoid using abrasive materials and
brushes tha t can dama ge the finish.
Wheels a re painted and ca n be treated
with the same ag ents as the body. For alloy
wheels we recomm end use of Alloy Wheel
Preserv er.
Paintwork damage
Repair small areas of paint damage such
as stone impac ts, scratches etc.
imm ediately using a Vauxhall Touc h-up
Applicator or Vauxhall S p ra y and
Touch-up Paint before rust can form.
If rust ha s already formed, have the c ause

coating in critic al areas.
It is adv isable to wash the engine
compartment before and after winter and
preserve it with wax. Cover alternator and
brake fluid reserv oir with plastic sheets
before washing the eng ine.
When washing the engine with a steam-jet
cleaner, do not d irect the steam-jet a t
components of the Anti-lock Brake System
(ABS), the air conditioning system or the
belt drive and its components.
Protective wax tha t has been applied is
also remov ed d uring the engine wash. For
this reason, have the engine, brake system
components in the engine com partment,
axle components with steering, body parts
and ca vities thoroughly p reserved with
protective wax after the wash. We
recom mend tha t you consult your Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer.
An engine wash can be performed in the
spring in ord er to remove dirt that has
adhered to the engine compartment,
which may also ha ve a high sa lt content.
Check p rotective wax layer and make good
if necessary.
On vehicles which are washed freq uently
in automa tic car washes with underbody
washing facility, the protective wax
coating may b e impaired by d irt-dissolv ing
additives, so check the underbody after
washing and ha ve it waxed if necessary .
Before the start of the cold weather season,
check the PVC c oa ting a nd protective wax
coating and, if necessary , have them
restored to perfect condition.
C aution – commercially a vailable bitumen /
rubber materials can damage the PVC
coating. We recom mend that y ou ha ve
underbody work carried out by a Vauxhall
Authorised Repa irer, who knows the
prescribed materials and has experience in
the use thereof.
The underbody should be washed
following the end of the cold weather
season to remov e any dirt adhering to the
underbody since this may also contain salt.

nec essary , have it restored to perfec t

Fuel consumption,
CO 2 emissions
Directive 80/1268/EEC (last c hanged
by 1999/100/EC) has applied for the
measurement of fuel consumption
since 1996.
The direc tiv e is oriented to actual driving
practices: Urba n driving is rated at
approx. 1/ 3 and extra-urban driving with
approx. 2/ 3 (urban and extra-urban
consumption). C old sta rts a nd acceleration
phases are also taken into considera tion.
The specification of CO 2 emission is also a
constituent of the directive.
The figures given m ust not be taken as a
guarantee for the actual fuel consumption
of a p artic ular vehicle.
All va lues are b ased on the EU ba se
model with standard equip ment.
The calculation of fuel consumption as
spec ified by directive 1999/100/EC takes
acc ount of the v ehicle’ s kerbweight,
ascertained in accordance with these
regula tions. O ptional extras ma y result
in slightly higher fuel c onsumption
and C O 2 emission lev els than those
quoted .
To convert l/100 k m into mpg, divide 282
by num ber of litres/100 km.

Tec hnic al data
Weights, payload and roof load
The p ayload is the difference between the
permissible Gross Vehicle Weight (see
identification plate on p ages 198) and the
EC kerbweig ht.
To calculate the EC k erbweight, enter the
data from your vehicle below :
z Kerb weight from
Ta ble 1,
page 204
+ .. .... ..... .. k g
z Weight of heavy
+ .. .... ..... .. k g
The total
= .. .... ..... .. k g
is the EC k erbweight.
O ptional equipment and accessories
increase the k erbweight and in some cases
also the permissible Gross Vehicle Weight,
which means that the payload will also
change slightly.
Note the weights given on the vehicle
identification plate.
The combined total of front a nd rear ax le
loa ds must not exceed the perm issible
Gross Vehicle Weight. For exam ple, if the
front ax le load is being fully utilized, the
rear axle c an only bear a load that is eq ual
to the Gross Vehic le Weight m inus the front
axle load.
Roof loa d
The maximum permissible roof load
is 100 kg.
See the vehicle identification plate on
pages 198 or the vehic le documents for
permissib le ax le loads.
Roof racks, c aravan and trailer towing see page 153.
The roof load is the c om bined weight of the
