How to wear seat belts
properly
Pull the belt out evenly from the
retractor and guide it over the
shoulder, making certain that it is not
twisted at any point. The belt must not
rest against your neck or arm.
The seatback must not be tilted back
too far (the recommended maximum
tilting angle is approx. 25°).
Insert the latch plate into the buckle.
Seat belt buckles are designed such
that latch plates cannot be inserted in
the incorrect buckle.
The lap belt must not be twisted and
must fit snugly across the body.
Tension the belt frequently whilst
driving by tugging the diagonal part of
the belt.
The centre rear seat belt position has
a twin buckle arrangement. Engage
the smaller latch plate (1) into the
correct buckle, then pull the belt
across and audibly engage into the
buckle marked CENTER (2).
9 Warning
The belt must not rest against
hard or fragile objects in the
pockets of your clothing. Do not
place any objects (e.g. handbags)
between the belt and your body.

Child restraints
Child restraint systems 3
When a child restraint system is
being used, pay attention to the
following usage and installation
instructions and also those supplied
with the child restraint system.
The country in which you are driving
could require the use of child restraint
systems at specific seats. Follow all
local and national regulations.
9 Warning
When using a child restraint
system on the front passenger’s
seat, the airbag systems for the
front passenger’s seat must be
deactivated; if not, the triggering
of the airbags poses a risk of fatal
injury to the child.
This is especially the case if rearfacing child restraint systems are
used on the front passenger’s
seat.
Selecting the right system
Your child should be transported
facing rearwards in the vehicle for as
long as possible. It is appropriate to
change the system when the child’s
head can no longer be properly
supported at eye height. The child’s
cervical vertebrae are still very weak
and in an accident they suffer less
stress in the semi-prone rearward
position than when sitting upright.
„ Children under 12 years or under
150 cm tall should only travel in an
appropriate child safety seat.
„ Never carry a child whilst travelling
in the vehicle. The child will
become too heavy to hold in the
event of a collision.
„ When transporting children, use a
child restraint system that is
suitable for the child's weight, age
and height.
„ Ensure that the child restraint
system to be installed is compatible
with the vehicle type.
„ Ensure that the mounting location
of the child restraint system within
the vehicle is correct.
3-9
„ Only allow children to enter and exit
the vehicle at the side facing away
from the traffic.
„ When the child restraint system is
not in use, secure the seat with a
seat belt or remove it from the
vehicle.
„ A child restraint system which has
been subjected to stress in an
accident must be replaced.
„ Vauxhall produce a range of child
restraint systems. We recommend
you consult a Vauxhall Authorised
Repairer.

Airbag system
The airbag system consists of several
individual systems.
When triggered, the driver’s and front
passenger’s airbags inflate to form
safety cushions for the driver and
front passenger.
When triggered, the side airbag
inflates to form a safety cushion for
the driver and/or front passenger in
the respective door area.
When triggered, the curtain airbag
inflates to provide a safety barrier in
the head area on the respective side
of the vehicle.
No impairment of view will occur, as
airbags inflate and deflate so quickly
that they are often not noticed in an
accident.
9 Warning
The systems can be triggered
abruptly and cause injury if they
are handled improperly.
„ The airbag system and belt
tensioner control electronics can be
found in the centre console area. In
order to avoid malfunctions, do not
store magnetic objects in this area.
„ Do not stick or place anything on
the steering wheel, instrument
panel, front seatbacks in the vicinity
of the airbags and seat areas or
cover them with other materials.
„ Each airbag can be triggered only
once. Once triggered, an airbag
must be replaced immediately.
Seek the assistance of a workshop.
„ Do not perform any modifications to
the components of the airbag
system, as this will render the
vehicle unroadworthy.
„ We recommend having the
steering wheel, the instrument
panel, all panelling parts, the door
seals, handles and the front seats
removed by a workshop.

Driving and operating
Engine exhaust
We recommend that you do not turn
the ignition off during cleaning.
Diesel particle filter (DPF) 3
The diesel particle filter removes
polluting soot particles out of the
exhaust.
The system contains a self-cleaning
function at certain intervals. The filter
is cleaned by burning the soot
particles at high temperature. This
procedure runs automatically under
certain vehicle conditions and can
take up to 30 minutes, during which
time fuel consumption may increase.
The smell and the noise that occur
are normal.
Self-cleaning may begin
automatically during idling; engine
speed increases and cooling fan
operates automatically.
The system cannot automatically
clean itself under certain vehicle
conditions, such as driving short
distances.
If control indicator 8 illuminates, you
should continue driving, and as soon
as the road and traffic situation
permits it, increase speed to more
than 50 mph (75 km/h) and diesel
particle filter cleaning will start.
Cleaning is quicker at faster speeds
and under load. The control indicator
extinguishes as soon as cleaning is
complete.
If regeneration of the diesel particle
filter is not successful or possible,
control indicator A may illuminate
and the vehicle goes into limp home
mode: interrupt your journey and
seek the assistance of a workshop
immediately.
Driving and operating
Catalytic converter
Caution
Damage to the catalytic converter or
the vehicle may result if the following
points are not observed.
Controlling exhaust emission
The catalytic converter reduces to a
minimum the proportion of noxious
materials in the exhaust, such as
carbon monoxide (CO),
hydrocarbons (CH) and nitrogen
oxides (NOx ).
Leaded fuel will damage the catalytic
converter and parts of the electronic
system, thereby rendering them
inoperative.
„ If the engine misfires or runs
roughly after a cold start, the
engine power has reduced
significantly or other unusual
operating problems occur that
indicate a fault in the ignition
system, seek the assistance of a
workshop as quickly as possible.
Drive at a slower speed and with
less engine revs for a short time, if
necessary.
„ If unburned fuel enters the catalytic
converter, this may result in
overheating and irreparable
damage to the catalytic converter.
You should therefore avoid
frequent cold starts, unnecessarily
long use of the starter when setting
off, running the tank dry (an
irregular fuel supply leads to
overheating) and starting the
engine by pushing or towing.
9-8
„ If the control indicator for exhaust
emissions Z illuminates whilst
driving, seek the assistance of a
workshop immediately. Control
indicator Z for exhaust emissions
3 5-11.
Exhaust gases
9 Danger
Engine exhaust gases contain
poisonous carbon monoxide,
which has no colour or odour and
can be lethal if inhaled.
If exhaust fumes penetrate the
vehicle interior, open the windows
and seek the assistance of a
workshop immediately.
9-9
Driving and operating
Brakes
Foot brake
The brake system comprises two
separate brake circuits.
If one brake circuit should fail, the
vehicle can still be braked with the
second remaining circuit.
If this happens, the brake pedal must
be fully depressed with greater pedal
pressure. The distance required for
braking will be greater. Seek the
assistance of a workshop.
In order to utilise the full pedal travel,
particularly in the event of a brake
circuit fault, there must be no mats in
the area of the pedals 3 9-1.
With the engine stopped, the brake
servo assistance is discontinued after
the brake pedal has been depressed
once or twice. The braking effect is
not reduced, but increased foot
pressure will be necessary. Take
extra care if the vehicle is being
towed.
Brake system control indicator 3 5-9.
Anti-lock Brake System
(ABS) u
The ABS prevents the wheels from
locking during heavy braking.
It starts to regulate braking pressure
as soon as a wheel shows a tendency
to lock. The vehicle remains
steerable, even during heavy braking,
e.g. on bends or when swerving to
avoid an obstacle. Even in the case of
extreme braking, ABS makes it
possible to drive round obstacles
without releasing the foot brake.
ABS control indicator 3 5-9.
Fault
Caution
If there is a fault in the ABS, the
wheels may lock during heavy
braking. This may cause the vehicle
to swerve.
Have the cause of the fault remedied
by a workshop.
Parking brake
Always apply the parking brake firmly
without actuating the release button.
Apply as fully as possible on uphill or
downhill inclines.
To release the parking brake, press
and hold the button, pull the lever up
slightly and lower lever while holding
the button in.
To reduce the operating forces of the
parking brake, depress the foot brake
at the same time.
Brake system control indicator 3 5-9.
Driving and operating
Brake assist
Rapid powerful application of the
brake pedal automatically applies
maximum brake force amplification to
achieve the shortest possible braking
distance under full braking (brake
assist).
Maintain steady pressure on the
brake pedal for as long as full-on
braking is to continue. When the
brake pedal is released, the
maximum brake force amplification is
taken away.

Electronic Stability Program
(ESP ®) 3
The Electronic Stability Program
improves driving stability when
necessary, independently of the type
of road surface and the tyre grip. It
also prevents the drive wheels from
spinning.
The system monitors vehicle
movements. As soon as the vehicle
starts to swerve (understeers/
oversteers), engine output is reduced
(the sound of the engine changes)
and individual wheels are specifically
braked. This considerably improves
the driving stability of the vehicle on
snow and ice and on wet or slippery
road surfaces.
ESP® is ready for operation as soon
as the ignition is switched on and the
control indicators R, ESP and
TCSS OFF extinguish.
When the ESP® comes into action,
control indicator R flashes rapidly in
the instrument cluster. Some noise or
vibration may be apparent.
Caution
Do not let this special safety feature
tempt you into taking risks when
driving.
Traffic safety can only be achieved
by adopting a responsible driving
style.
ESP active control indicator 3 5-10.
Interruption of power supply
If the vehicle’s battery has been
disconnected and reconnected,
ESP® is deactivated and control
indicator R flashes once per second.
Reactivate ESP® by driving in a
straight line at over 9 mph ( 15 km/h)
for a few seconds until flashing
ceases. Several seconds may lapse
before the control indicator
extinguishes, depending on road
conditions.

Refuelling
9 Warning
Before refuelling, switch off the
engine and any heating systems
with combustion chambers.
Switch off mobile phones.
Fuel is inflammable and
explosive, therefore avoid dealing
with fuel near naked flames and
doing anything that would
generate sparks. No smoking!
This also applies where the smell
of fuel is noticeable. If the smell of
fuel vapour occurs in the vehicle
itself, have the cause remedied
immediately by a workshop.
Observe the operating and safety
instructions of the petrol station
when refuelling.
9-13

Fuel consumption,
CO 2 emissions
Directive 80/1268/EEC (last changed
by 2004/3/EG) has applied for the
measurement of fuel consumption
since 1996.
The directive is oriented to actual
driving practices: Urban driving is
rated at approx. 1/ 3 and extra-urban
driving with approx. 2 /3 (urban and
extra-urban consumption). Cold
starts and acceleration phases are
also taken into consideration.
The specification of CO 2 emission is
also a constituent of the directive.
The figures given must not be taken
as a guarantee for the actual fuel
consumption of a particular vehicle.
All values are based on the EU base
model with standard equipment.
The calculation of fuel consumption
as specified by directive 2004/3/EG
takes account of the vehicle’s kerb
weight, ascertained in accordance
with these regulations. Optional
extras may result in slightly higher
fuel consumption and CO 2 emission
levels than those quoted.

tyres.
Winter tyres improve safety at
temperatures below 7 ° C and should
therefore be fitted on all the wheels.
Depending on national regulations, a
notice indicating the maximum
permissible speed for the tyres must
be affixed within the driver's field of
vision.
The maximum permissible speed
varies from country to country on
account of national regulations.
Ensure that winter tyres are inflated
to the correct pressure specified by
the tyre manufacturer.

After having checked the tyre
pressures, securely tighten the valve
caps.
The specified tyre pressures are valid
for cold tyres. The increased tyre
pressure resulting from extensive
driving must not be reduced. The tyre
pressures specified apply to both
summer and winter tyres.
Incorrect tyre pressures will impair
safety, vehicle handling, comfort and
fuel economy and will increase tyre
wear.
Vehicle care
9 Warning
If the pressure is too low, this can
result in considerable tyre warmup and internal damage, leading
to tread separation and even to
tyre blow-out at high speeds.
Tyre condition
Drive over edges slowly and at a right
angle if possible. When parking,
ensure that the tyres are not pressed
against the edge of the kerb.
Check tyres regularly for damage
(foreign bodies, punctures, cuts,
cracks, bulges in sidewalls). Check
wheels for damage. In the event of
damage or abnormal wear, seek the
assistance of a workshop.
Different tyre and wheel
types
If tyres of a different size to those
fitted at the factory are used (this
includes winter tyres), the electronic
speedometer may possibly need to
be reprogrammed, to ensure that the
speed displayed is correct.

9 Warning
This must be done with extreme
care. Any deviation from the
following instructions could lead
to personal injury or damage
resulting from battery explosion,
as well as to damage to the
electrical systems in both
vehicles.
Never expose the battery to naked
flames or sparks.
„ A discharged battery can freeze at
temperatures of 0 °C. Defrost the
battery in a warm room before
connecting the jump leads.
„ Do not allow battery fluid to contact
eyes, skin, fabrics or painted
surfaces. The fluid contains
sulphuric acid which can cause
injuries and damage in the event of
direct contact.
„ Wear eye protection and protective
clothing when handling a battery.
„ Use auxiliary battery with same
voltage (12 volts). Its capacity (Ah)
must not be considerably less than
that of the discharged battery.
Voltage and capacity information
can be found on the batteries.
„ Use jump leads with insulated
terminals and a width of at least
16 mm2 (25 mm 2 for diesel
engines).
„ Do not disconnect the discharged
battery from the vehicle.
„ Switch off all unnecessary
electrical consumers. Infotainment
system may be damaged if
switched on while jump starting.
„ Do not lean over the battery during
jump starting procedure.
„ Do not allow the terminals of one
lead to touch those of the other
lead.
„ The vehicles should not touch while
jump starting.
„ Apply parking brake.
Vehicle care
„ Manual transmission in neutral,
automatic transmission 3 in P.
3. Connect one end of the second
jump lead to the negative terminal 3
of the battery providing the jump
start (identified by "-" sign on
battery case or terminal).
4. Connect the other end of the
second jump lead 4 to ground on
the vehicle with the discharged
battery, e.g. on the engine block.
9 Warning
Connect the leads in the order shown
in the illustration:
1. Connect one end of the first jump
lead to the positive terminal 1 of the
battery providing the jump start
(identified by “+” sign on battery
case or terminal).
2. Connect the other end of the first
jump lead to the positive terminal 2
of the discharged battery (“+” sign).
Care must be taken to ensure that
the leads do not inadvertently
contact metal surfaces within the
compartment area.
„ Do not connect leads to negative
terminal of discharged battery.
„ The last connection point should be
as far away from the discharged
battery as possible.
„ Route leads so they cannot catch
on rotating parts in engine
compartment.
„ Start the engine of the vehicle
providing the jump start.
10-27
„ After 5 minutes, start the other
engine. Start attempts should be
made at intervals of 1 minute and
should not last longer than
15 seconds.
„ After starting, allow both engines to
idle for approx. 3 minutes with
leads connected.
„ In order to avoid excess voltage in
the electrical system, before
removing a lead, switch on an
electrical consumer (e.g. lamps,
heated rear window) in the vehicle
receiving the jump start.
„ Operate discharged vehicle for
approx. 20 minutes to allow for
recharging.
„ Reverse above sequence exactly
when removing leads.

Vehicle care
Towing
Caution
Towing the vehicle
Towing from the front is permissible
in emergency situations only.
For fixing of the front towing eye,
remove the towing eye socket cover
by pressing the lower part of the
cover.
The towing eye attachment is stored
below the spare wheel in the luggage
compartment 3 10-25.
Drive slowly and avoid jerky
movements. Impermissible tractive
forces could damage the vehicles.
Screw in towing eye attachment
clockwise until it is firmly in place. If
necessary, use jack handle to tighten.
Attach a tow rope 3 - or better still a
tow rod 3 - to the front towing eye.
The front towing eye must only be
used for towing and not recovering
the vehicle.
Switch on the ignition ( 3 9-1) to
release the steering column lock and
to permit operation of the brake
lamps and the windscreen wiper.
Manual transmission in neutral,
automatic transmission 3 in N.
More brake pedal pressure is
necessary when braking since the
brake servo unit is operative only
when the engine is running.
Considerably greater steering force is
necessary since this unit is operative
only when the engine is running.
To prevent entry of exhaust fumes
from towing vehicle, switch on air
recirculation mode (3 8-3) and close
the windows.
Do not tow the vehicle with a tow
rope 3 or tow rod 3 for extended
periods, to avoid causing damage to
the vehicle. Only tow in this manner
on hard-surfaced roads.
Vehicles with manual or automatic
transmission 3 can be towed from
the front, provided the front axle is
raised off the ground and the parking
brake is released.
Vehicle care
Vehicles with manual transmission
can also be towed from the front with
all four wheels on the ground. In this
case, the gearshift lever must be in
neutral with the parking brake
released and the key in ignition
switch position ACC, to permit
release of the steering column lock
before towing.
Seek the assistance of a workshop.
Caution
Never tow the vehicle with the front
wheels on the ground, to avoid
causing damage to the automatic
transmission 3.
After towing, unscrew the towing eye
attachment anti-clockwise and refit
the cover.
Towing another vehicle
Caution
The rear lashing eye is designed for
shipping purposes only.
Towing another vehicle from the
rear is not permitted!
10-29
Interior care
Interior and upholstery
Clean the vehicle interior regularly,
including the instrument panel facia,
using Interior/Upholstery Cleaner.
Clean fabric upholstery with a
vacuum cleaner and brush. To
remove stains, use a cleaner that is
suitable for both fabrics and vinyl.
Caution
Open Velcro fasteners on clothing
could damage seat upholstery.
Make sure that Velcro fasteners are
closed.
Clean seat belts only with lukewarm
water or Interior/Upholstery Cleaner.
10-30
Vehicle care
Exterior care
Locks
The locks are lubricated with a highgrade lock cylinder grease at the
factory.
Only use de-icing agents in
emergencies, as they have a
degreasing effect and will impair the
function of the locks. After using a
de-icing agent, have the locks
regreased. Seek the assistance of a
workshop.
Washing the vehicle
The paintwork of your vehicle is
exposed to environmental influences,
e.g. continuous changes in weather
conditions, industrial waste gases
and dust or thawing salts, so wash
and wax your vehicle regularly. When
using automatic car washes, select a
program which includes 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.
If using a car wash, comply with the
pertinent instructions of the car wash
manufacturer. The windscreen wiper
and rear window wiper must be
switched off 3 5-2, 5-3. Remove
detachable rod antenna by
unscrewing it.
Do not use high-pressure jet
cleaners.
If you wash your vehicle by hand,
make sure that the insides of the
wings are also thoroughly rinsed out.
Do not use household dishwashing
liquid, to avoid removing 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 vehicle. Rinse leather frequently.
Use separate leathers for paint and
window surfaces; remnants of wax on
the windows will impair vision.
Also wash aluminium trim parts,
avoiding the use of abrasive
materials such as automotive or
chrome polish, steam or caustic
soap. Washing with water is normally
sufficient.
Observe national regulations.
Exterior lamps/lenses
Headlamp and other protective lamp
bezels are made of plastic. If they
require additional cleaning after the
vehicle has been washed, clean them
with Car Shampoo. Do not use any
abrasive or caustic agents, do not
use an ice scraper, and do not clean
them dry.
Waxing
Wax your vehicle regularly, in
particular after it has been washed
using Car Shampoo and at the latest
when water no longer forms beads on
the paintwork, otherwise the
paintwork will dry out.
Also wax aluminium trim parts, edges
and folds on opened doors and flaps
as well as the areas they cover.
Vehicle care
Polishing
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.
Plastic body parts should not be
treated with wax and polish.
Use Metallic Paintwork Wax on
vehicles with a metallic-effect paint
finish.
Plastic and rubber parts
For additional cleaning of plastic and
rubber parts, use a cleaner suitable
for vehicle interiors. Do not use any
other agent, and in particular do not
use solvents or petrol.
Windows and wiper blades
When cleaning the heated rear
window, make sure that the heating
element on the inside of the window
is not damaged. Never place stickers
on the inside of the rear window.
Use a soft, lint-free cloth or chamois
leather, in conjunction with Window
Cleaning Spray and Insect Remover.
Do not use sharp instruments or
abrasive cleaners.
Windscreen Wash Solvent is suitable
for de-icing windows.
For mechanical removal of ice, use a
commercially available sharp-edged
ice scraper. Press the scraper firmly
against the glass so that no dirt can
get under it and scratch the glass.
Wax, such as that used in car
washes, can cause streaks to form on
the windscreen when the wiper is
used.
Wiper blades can be cleaned with a
soft cloth and Windscreen Wash
Solvent. Do not use abrasive
cleaners.
Tyres and wheels
Do not use high-pressure jet cleaners
on wheels and tyres.
Use a pH-neutral wheel cleaning
agent to clean the wheels.
10-31
Avoid using abrasive materials and
brushes that can damage the finish.
Wheels are painted and can be
treated with the same agents as the
body. For alloy wheels 3, we
recommend the use of Alloy Wheel
Preserver.
Paint damage
Repair small areas of paint damage
such as stone impacts, scratches etc.
before rust can form. If rust has
already formed, have the cause
remedied. Seek the assistance of a
workshop.
Underbody
Your vehicle has a factory-applied
PVC undercoating in the wheel
arches (including the longitudinal
members) which provides permanent
protection and needs no special
maintenance. The surfaces of the
vehicle underbody not covered by
PVC are provided with a durable
protective wax coating in critical
areas.
10-32
Vehicle care
On vehicles which are washed
frequently in automatic car washes
with underbody washing facility, the
protective wax coating may be
impaired by dirt-dissolving additives.
Check the underbody after washing
and have it waxed if necessary.
Before the start of the cold weather
season, check the PVC coating and
protective wax coating and, if
necessary, have them restored to
perfect condition.
The underbody should be washed
following the end of the cold weather
season to remove any dirt adhering to
the underbody since this may also
contain salt. Check protective wax
coating and, if necessary, have it
restored to perfect condition.
Engine compartment
Areas of the engine compartment that
are painted in the same colour as the
vehicle must be looked after like any
other painted surface.
It is advisable to wash the engine
compartment before and after winter
and preserve it with wax. Cover
alternator and fluid reservoirs with
plastic sheets before washing the
engine.
When washing the engine with a
steam-jet cleaner, do not direct the
steam-jet at components of the
Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), the air
conditioning system 3 or the belt
drive and its components.
Protective wax that has been applied
is also removed during the engine
wash. For this reason, have the
engine, brake system components in
the engine compartment, axle
components with steering, body parts
and cavities thoroughly preserved
with protective wax after the wash.
An engine wash can be performed in
the spring in order to remove dirt that
has adhered to the engine
compartment, which may also have a
high salt content. Check protective
wax layer and make good if
necessary.

Additional servicing
Additional operations ⊕
Additional work is work that is not
required every service but can be
performed in conjunction with a
regular service.
Time allowances for such work are
not included in the scope of regular
services and will be charged for
additionally. It is more economic if
these operations are performed as
part of a scheduled service than
having them performed separately.
Severe operating conditions o
Operating conditions are classified as
severe when one or more of the
following occurs frequently:
„ cold starts,
„ stop and go,
„ trailer/caravan towing,
„ gradients and/or high altitudes,
„ poor road surfaces,
„ sand and dust,
„ extreme temperature fluctuations.
Police vehicles, taxis and driving
school vehicles are also classified as
operating under severe conditions.
Under severe operating conditions, it
may be necessary to have certain
scheduled service work done more
frequently than the scheduled
intervals.
For example, if fuel is used that does
not comply with required standards,
the fuel filter may need more frequent
draining or replacement and it may
also be necessary to change other
components more often (e.g. spark
plugs).
It is recommended to seek technical
advice on the servicing requirements
dependent on the specific operating
conditions of your vehicle.
11-5
Recommended fluids,
and lubricants
Only use products that have been
tested and approved. Damage
resulting from the use of nonapproved materials will not be
covered by the warranty.
9 Warning
Operating materials are
hazardous and must be handled
with the appropriate level of care.
If consumed, seek medical
attention immediately. Do not
inhale fumes and avoid skin
contact. Keep out of reach of
children. Do not allow operating
materials to contaminate the
sewage system, surface water,
ground water or soil. Dispose of
empty containers properly.
Always bear in mind that
operating materials are
hazardous to your health.

Service and maintenance
Engine oil
Engine oil is identified by its quality
and also its viscosity. Quality is more
important than viscosity when
selecting which engine oil to use.
Engine oil quality
GM-LL-A-025:
Petrol engines
GM-LL-B-025:
Diesel engines
GM
General Motors Europe
LL
Longlife
A or B
Engine oil quality
specification
025
Validity index
Vauxhall engine oil meets
classifications GM-LL-A-025 and
GM-LL-B-025 and is therefore
suitable for both petrol and diesel
engines.
Topping up engine oil
Oils of different manufacturers and
brands can be mixed as long as you
comply with the specified engine oil
criteria (quality and viscosity).
Not every engine oil available on the
market meets the quality
requirements, always check the
required specification and rating is
marked on the container.
If engine oil of the required quality is
not available, a maximum of 1 litre of
ACEA A3/B4 or A3/B3 grade may be
used (only once between each oil
change). The viscosity should be of
the correct rating.
Use of ACEA A1/B1 and A5/B5
engine oil is expressly forbidden,
since they can cause long-term
engine damage under certain
operating conditions.
Engine oil additives
The use of engine oil additives could
cause damage and invalidate the
warranty.
The SAE viscosity rating defines the
ability of an oil to flow. When cold, oil
is more viscous than when hot.
Multigrade oil is indicated by two
figures. The first figure, followed by a
W, indicates low temperature
viscosity and the second figure the
high temperature viscosity.
Engine oil viscosity
Coolant and antifreeze
Diesel engines:
SAE 0W-30, 0W-40, 5W-30 or 5W-40
Use antifreeze of recommended
specification.
Petrol engines:
SAE 5W-30
Service and maintenance
The system is factory-filled with
coolant designed for frost protection
down to approx. -28 °C. This
concentration should be maintained
all year-round.
Coolant additives intended to give
additional corrosion protection or seal
against minor leaks can cause
function problems. Liability for
consequences resulting from the use
of coolant additives will be rejected.
Ensure it does become contaminated
with fluids containing mineral oil (oil,
petrol, cleaner) as this can damage
the seals and sleeves of the brake
system.
Caution
Due to its corrosive nature, brake
fluid must not come in contact with
the paintwork. Flush any escaped
brake fluid with plenty of water.
Brake and clutch fluid
Only use DOT4 brake fluid.
9 Warning
Brake fluid is poisonous!
Over time, brake fluid absorbs
moisture which will reduce braking
effectiveness. The brake fluid should
therefore be replaced at the specified
interval.
Brake fluid should be stored in a
sealed container to avoid water
absorption.
Transmission fluid
Use fluid meeting specification
Grade: API GL-4
Viscosity: 75W-85.
Automatic transmission fluid
Use fluid meeting specification
ATF3309.
