Vauxhall Full Size airbag system
The Vauxhall Full Size airbag system
comprises several individual systems.
Front airb ag system 3
The front airbag system will be triggered in
the event of a serious ac cident involving a
frontal impact and forms safety cushions
for the driver and front passenger. The
forward movement of the driver and front
passenger is checked and the risk of
injuries to the upper body a nd head
thereby substantially reduced.
Picture no: 18088s.tif
Side airb ag system 3
The side a irb ag system triggers when a
side-on collision occurs a nd provides a
safety barrier for the driver and/or
passenger in the respective front door
area. This reduc es the risk of injury to the
up per body considerably in case of a side
impact.

Fitting seat bel ts
Pull the belt out of the retractor and guide
it across the body , making certain that it is
not twisted.
Insert latch plate into buckle. Backrest
must not be tilted too far back as this

9 Warning
O n pregna nt women in particular, the lap
belt must be positioned a s low as
possible across the pelvis so as not to put
too much pressure on the abdomen.
Bulk y clothing prevents the belt from fitting
prop erly. The belt must not rest against

Vauxhall Full Size airbag system
The Vauxhall Full Size airbag system
comprises several individual systems.
Front a irbag system 3
The front airbag sy stem will b e triggered in
the event of a serious accident inv olv ing a
frontal impa ct and forms sa fety cushions
for the driver and front passenger. The
forward movement of the driver a nd front
passenger is check ed a nd the risk of
injuries to the up per body and head
thereby substantially reduced.
Si de airba g system 3
The side airbag sy stem triggers when a
side-on collision occurs and provides a
safety barrier for the driver a nd/or
passenger in the respective front door
area. This reduces the risk of injury to the
upper body considera bly in case of a side
impa ct.
82
Safety systems
Examples of events triggering the front
airbag sy stem:
z Impact against a non-y ielding obstacle:
the front airbags are trigg ered at low
vehicle speed.
z Impact against a yield ing obstacle:
(such as another vehicle): the front
airbags are only triggered at a hig her
vehicle speed.
Front airb ag
The front airbag system is identified by the
word AI RBAG on the steering wheel and
above the glov e c om partment 3.
The front airbag system comprises:
z an airbag with inflator in the steering
wheel and a second one in the
instrum ent panel 3,
z the control elec tronics with impact
sensor,
z the a irba g system s control indicator v in
the instrument panel.
The front airb ag system will be trigg ered :
z depending on the severity of the
accident
z depending on the type of impact
z within the range shown in the illustration
z indep endently of the side airb ag
system 3.
Safety systems
When trigg ered , the front airbags inflate in
milliseconds to form a safety cushion for
the d riv er and front passenger. The
forward movement of the front seat
occupants is c hecked, thereby
sub stantially reducing the risk of injury to
the upp er body and hea d.
No im pairment of view will occur, because
the a irb ags inflate and deflate so quickly
that it is often not ev en noticed in an
accident.
9 Warning
The front airbag sy stem provides
optimum p rotection when the seat,
back rest and head restraint are p roperly
positioned: Adjust the driver’s seat
suitab ly to occupant’s height so that
when the driver is sitting upright, the
steering wheel is held in the a rea of its
upper sp ok es with the d riv er’s arms
slightly bent. The passenger seat should
be slid back as fa r as possible with the
back rest upright (see pa ge 63). Do not
place the head, body, hands or feet on
the covers of the airba g systems.
Do not place any objects in the area in
which the airb ags inflate. Im portant
inform ation – see page 78.
83
9 Warnin g
The three-point seat belt must b e
correctly fitted – see pag e 79.
The front airbag sy stem will not be
triggered in the ev ent of
z the ignition is switched off
z minor frontal collisions
z accidents in which the vehicle overturns
z collisions involving a sid e or rear impac t
that is to say, if it w ould not be of benefit to
the oc cup ants.
84
Safety systems
9 Warning
Seat belts m ust therefore a lways be worn.
The front a irb ag system serv es to
supplement the three-point seat belts. If
you do not wea r your seat belt you risk
being seriously injured, or even thrown
from the vehic le, in the ev ent of an
accident.
In the event of an ac cident the belt helps
to keep you in the correct seating
position, so tha t the front airbag system
can provid e you with effective p rotection.
Side airb ag 3
The side a irb ag system is identified by the
word AIRBAG on the outb oa rd sides of the
front seat backrests.
The side a irb ag system c om prises:
z an airbag with infla tor in the back of the
driver’s and front passenger seat
respectively
z the control electronics
z the side impact sensors
z the airbag systems c ontrol indicator v in
the instrum ent panel.
The side airbag sy stem will be triggered:
z depending on the sev erity of the
accident
z depending on the ty pe of im pact
z within the range shown in the illustration
on the centre d oor pillar of the driver’s or
front passenger side,
z ind epend ently of the front airbag
sy stem.
Safety systems
9 Warning
There must be no objects in the area in
which the airb ag inflates or in the a rea
between the seat backs and the vehicle
body . Do not place the hand s or arms on
the covers of the airba g systems.
Imp ortant information – see page 87.
The three-point sea t b elt must a lw ays be
correctly fitted – see page 79.
When triggered, the sid e airbag inflates in
milliseconds to form a safety cushion for
the d riv er or front passenger in the
respective door area. This substantially
red uces the risk of injury to the upper body
in the event of a sid e-on collision.
85
The side airbags will not b e trig gered in the
event of
z the ignition is switched off
z frontal collisions
z accidents in which the vehicle overturns
z collisions involving a rear impact
z collisions involving a side impact outside
the passenger cell.

Safety systems
Child restraint system 3
The Vauxhall child restraint system is
designed specifica lly for y our Va ux ha ll and
thus prov ides optimum safety for your child
in the event of im pact. I f a different child
safety seat is used, follow the
manufacturers’ instructions for fitting and
use.
The country in which you are d riv ing could
req uire the use of child restra int systems at
specific seats. Follow all local and national
reg ulations.
Selec ting the rig ht system
Your child should be transported facing
rearward in the car as long as possible.
Change the sy stem when the height of the
child is such that the head ex tends over the
top of the system and is no longer
supported at ey e level. The child’s cervical
vertebrae are still very weak. In the event of
an accident, they are subjected to less
stress in the sem i-prone rea rw ard position
than w hen upright.
9 Warning
C hild restaint sy stems must not be carried
on a p assenger’s lap. Danger to life.
89
Not e
z Children under 12 years of age or 150 cm
must only tra vel in a n appropriate c hild
restra int system on the seats in the rear
row 3.
z When transporting c hildren, use the child
restra int system s suitable for the child’s
weight.
z Be sure that c hild restra int system s a re
properly installed - see the instructions
accompanying the child restraint
sy stem.
z The covers of the Vauxhall child restraint
sy stem can b e wiped clean.
z Do not stick any thing on the child
restra int systems and do not cover them
with any other m aterials.
z Only allow child ren to enter and exit at
the side fa cing away from the traffic.
z A child restraint sy stem which has been
subjected to stress in an accident must
be replaced.

"Rockin g the car"
Kickdown
Accelerator pedal pressed past the
pressure point: below certa in speeds, the
transm ission shifts down into a lower gear.
Full engine power is availab le for
acceleration.
During kick down no ma nual gea r shifting is
possible.
When the engine speed a pproaches its
upper limit, the transmission shifts to a
higher gear during kick down even in
Manual mode.
Without kick down this automatic shift is
not effec ted in Ma nual m ode.
If it becomes necessary to rock the vehicle
to free it from sand, mud, snow or a hole,
move the selector lever between the mid
position and R in a repeat pattern while
simultaneously app ly ing light pressure to
the accelerator pedal. Do not rac e the
engine a nd avoid sudden acceleration.
This applies only to the exceptional
circum stances mentioned a bove.
The last g ear engaged is retained. When
the selector lever is in position N no g ear is

Never actuate a ccelerator and brake
pedals simultaneously.
It is possible to continue driving if only
control indicator A illum inates. Manual
mode can then no longer be selected.
To prevent dam age, Ea sytronic
disengages the "creep function" when the
tem perature of the automatic clutch is
high.
If an "F" is also shown in the transmission
display , it is not possible to continue
driving.
Have the ca use of the fault rem edied.

Drivin g hints
Driving hints
The first 600 miles (1000 km)
Driv e y our v ehicle at various speed s. Do
not use full throttle. Never allow the engine
to labour at low rev s.
Make good use of all gears. Depress the
accelerator ped al a ma ximum of around
three quarters of the available p edal travel
in all gea rs.
Do not d riv e faster than three quarters of
maximum speed .
Do not b rake unnec essarily ha rd for the
first 125 miles (200 km).
Never coast with engine not
run ning
Many units w ill not function in this situation
(e.g. brake servo unit, power steering 3 ).
Driv ing in this ma nner is a danger to
yourself and others.
Brake servo unit
When the engine is not running, the brake
servo unit is no longer effective once the
brake peda l has been depressed once or
twice. Braking effect is not reduced , but
significantly greater force is required for
braking.
Electric power-assisted steering 3
If the power-assisted steering fails when
being towed w ith the eng ine switched off –
the vehicle can still be steered, but
considera bly more forc e is req uired.
117
Driving in mo untainous terrain or
with a trailer/caravan
Ca ra van/t r ail er t owi ng
The cooling fan is electrically operated. Its
cooling power is therefore independent of
the engine speed.
S ince a c onsiderab le am ount of heat is
generated at high engine speeds and less
at slower speeds, do not shift down when
climb ing hills whilst the vehic le is still coping
with the gradient in the hig her gear.
Diesel engines: On gradients of 10% or
more, do not drive faster than 20 mph
(30 k m/h) in first gear or 30 m ph (50 km /h)
in second g ear.
Driving with a roof load
Do not exceed the perm issible roof load –
see page 202. For reasons of safety,
distribute the loa d ev enly a nd secure it
properly with reta ining straps so that it
cannot slip . Adjust ty re p ressure to the
load c onditions. Do not drive faster than
75 mph (120 km /h). C heck a nd retighten
the straps frequently .
Switching off the engin e
When y ou switch off, fans in the eng ine
compa rtm ent may continue running for a
time to cool the engine.
If the engine temperature is very high, e.g.
after driving in mountainous terrain: allow
the engine to id le for approx im ately two
minutes in order to prevent heat
acc um ulation.
118
Drivin g hints
Vehi cles w ith turb ocharged engine
After running at hig h engine speeds or high
engine loads, opera te the engine briefly
at a low load or run in neutral for approx.
30 sec onds before switching off in order to
protect the turbocha rger.
Save energy – mo re miles
Please observe the running-in hints on the
previous pag e and the tips for sav ing
energy on the following pa ges.
Good, technica lly correct and economical
driving ensures ma ximum durability and
performance for your vehic le.
Overrun
The fuel supply is autom atically shut off
during overrun, e.g. when the vehicle is
being driven down long gradients or when
braking. To enable the overrun cut-off to
take effect, do not acc elerate during
overrun and, if in manual transm ission
mode, do not depress clutch ped al. To
prevent damage to the catalytic converter,
overrun cut-off is temporarily d eactiva ted
when the catalytic conv erter temperature
is high.
Vehi cles w ith turb ocharged engine
Flow -g enerated noises may be aud ible if
the a ccelerator is released quickly on
account of air flow in the turbocharger.
Engine speed
Cooling fan
Driv e in a low engine speed range for each
gear a s m uc h as possible.
The cooling fan is controlled v ia a
therm oswitch and therefore only runs if
nec essary .
Warm ing up
Allow the engine to warm up while driving.
Do not warm it up by letting it run at idling
speed. Do not apply full throttle until the
engine has reached op erating
temperature.
Following a cold start, the Ea sy tronic 3
does not shift into the higher gears until a
fa irly high engine speed has been reached.
This ensures that the c atalytic converter
quic kly attains the temperature req uired
for optimum pollutant reduction.
The cooling fan a utomatica lly switches on
when the diesel particle filter is being
cleaned 3 depending on the engine.
Pedals
Do not place any ob jects in the foot well
which could slip under the ped als and
inhibit the pedal trav el.
To ensure the pedal travel is uninhibited,
there must be no mats in the area of the
pedals.
Correct gear selection
Battery c are
Do not race your engine whilst in neutral or
with a low gea r selected. Driving too fast in
indiv idua l gea rs as well as stop-a nd -g o
tra ffic increases engine wear a nd fuel
consumption.
When driving slowly or when the v ehicle is
stationary , e.g. in slow urban traffic, stopand-go traffic or traffic jams, turn off all
unnecessary electrical load s w here
possible (e. g. heated rear window, heated
front seats, etc. ).
Change down
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.
Clutch operation
Alw ays dep ress the clutch ped al hard to
the floor to prev ent shifting difficulties and
tra nsmission dam age.
When driving do not use the pedal as a
foot rest; this will ca use substantial clutch
wear.
Depress clutch pedal when sta rting in order
to relieve the strain on the starter and the
battery.

Trend-setting technology
When dev eloping and manufac turing your
vehic le, Vauxhall used environmentfriendly and in the m ain recyc la ble
materials. The p roduction m ethods used to
mak e y our v ehicle are likewise
env ironmenta lly -compatible.
Recycling of production wastes keeps the
circulation of material closed. Reduction of
energy a nd water requirements a lso help s
to conserve natural resources.
A highly adv anced design mea ns that your
vehic le can be easily disassembled at the
end of its working life, and the individual
materials separated for subsequent re-use.
Materia ls such as asbestos and cadmium
are not used . The refrigerant in the air
conditioning system 3 is C FC -free.
z High noise levels and exhaust em issions
are often a result of driving w ithout due
attention to saving energy and
protecting the environment.
z Y ou should therefore drive with energy in
mind – "more miles with less fuel" .
Reduce the noise level and exhaust
emissions b y adopting an environmentconsc ious driving style. This is ex tremely
worthwhile and im proves the quality of
life.
Fuel consum ption d epend s to a great
extent on your own personal d riv ing
style. The following hints are intended to
help you consume fuel at a rate that is as
close as possible to the specified levels –
see page 200.
C heck y our v ehicle’ s fuel consumption
every time you refuel. This facilitates
early detection of any irregula rities
causing increased fuel consumption.
119
Warming up
z Full throttle and w arming up at idle
speed increase w ear, fuel consumption,
ex haust em ission, the am ount of
pollutant in the exhaust and the am ount
of noise.
z Driv e off imm ediately after starting.
Wa rm up the engine b y running it at
moderate eng ine speeds.
Uniform speed
z Hectic driving significantly increases fuel
consumption, the ex haust emissions, the
proportion of pollutant in the exhaust
gas and the noise level.
z Do not accelerate a nd brake
unnecessarily . Drive at uniform speed,
watching the road.
Avoid frequent starting off and stopping
e.g . at traffic lights, in short distance
tra ffic and in queues of traffic by m eans
of clever planning . Select road s w ith
good traffic flow .
Idling
z The eng ine also consumes fuel when
idling .
z If you have to wait for more than one
minute, it is worthwhile switching off
the eng ine. Five minutes of idling
corresponds to ap prox imately one
kilometre of driving.
120
Saving Fuel, Protecting th e En viro nment
Overrun
z The fuel supply is automatically shut off
during ov errun, e. g. when the vehicle is
being driven down long gradients or
when braking – see page 118.
z To enable the overrun cut-off to come
into action and sav e fuel, do not
accelerate or d epress clutch pedal
during ov errun.
Correct gear selection
z High revs increase engine w ear and fuel
consumption.
z Slightly relea sing the accelerator ped al
results in distinct fuel savings with no
major loss of speed.
Drive at no more tha n around three
quarters of max imum speed and you will
use up to 50% less fuel, without losing a
great deal of time.
Tyre pressure
z Inadequate ty re p ressure, leading to
higher road resistance, costs m oney in
two wa ys: for more fuel and increased
tyre wear.
z Do not race your engine. Avoid d riv ing at
high engine speeds.
z Regular checks (every 14 d ays) pay off.
Making use of the tachom eter helps to
save fuel. Drive in a low engine speed
ra nge for each gear as much a s possible
with uniform engine speeds. Drive as
often as possible in top gear, select the
next higher gear a s soon as possible,
and only chang e down when the engine
is no longer running perfectly smoothly .
z The power consum ption of electrical
equip ment increa ses fuel consumption.
High speed
z The higher the speed , the higher the
consumption and the noise level. At top
speed, you consume a great deal of fuel
and produce excessive noise and
exhaust em issions.
Electrical loads
z Sw itch off all aux iliary electrical loads
(e. g. air c onditioning 3, heated rear
window) when not needed.
Roof racks
z Due to air resistance, a roof load
can increase fuel consum ption by
approx . 3.5 gal./1000 miles (1 l/100 km).
z Remove them if they are not being used.
Repair and maintenanc e
z Improper repairs or adjustm ent and
maintenance work can increase fuel
consumption. Do not carry out w ork on
the eng ine yourself.
You may out of ignorance infringe
environmental law s b y not disposing of
materials properly.
Appropriate parts might not b e recycled.
Contact with some of the materia ls
inv olv ed may p ose a hea lth haz ard.
z We recom mend that repair and
maintenance be entrusted to your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
Extreme drivin g conditions
z Going up steep slopes, cornering, driving
on poor road s a nd winter driving a ll
increase fuel consumption.
Fuel consumption increa ses dramatically
in urba n tra ffic a nd at winter
temperatures, especially on short trip s
when the engine operating tempera ture
is not reached.
z Follow the hints given above to keep
consumption to a m inimum under suc h
cond itions.

C om mercially availab le high-quality fuel
with a maximum ethanol content of 5% as
per DIN EN 228 (catalytic c onverter - see

Fuel quality ha s a dec isive influenc e on
power outp ut, running behaviour and
service life of the engine. The additives
contained in the fuel pla y an important role
in this regard. You should therefore only
use high-quality fuels containing additives.
Special equipm ent increases the weight of
the vehicle. As a result, they c an inc rease
fuel consumption and reduce the specified
maximum speed .
There is increa sed friction b etween eng ine
and transmission p arts during the first
600 miles (1000 kilometres). This increases
fuel consumption.

Fuels with ethanol content greater than 5%
do not comp ly with DIN EN 228 and m ust
not be used unless the vehicle has been
spec ifically dev eloped and ap prov ed for

Refuelling
Diesel engines must be operated only on
commercially ava ila ble diesel fuel meeting
the specific ations of DIN EN 590.
9 Warnin g
Care must be ta ken when hand ling fuel.
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 a nd filterability of diesel fuel 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
sure that you fill the ta nk with winter fuel
before the start of the cold wea ther
season.
Additives can be used with d iesel fuels with
winter p roperties that are guaranteed by
the m anufacturer and when using diesel
fuel filters that are heated depending on
the outside temperature.
Diesel fuels must not be diluted with fuels
that are intended for petrol engines.
Before refuelling, switch off the eng ine
and any external heaters with
combustion chamb ers (identified b y a
sticker on the tank fla p). Switch off
mobile phones.

Fuel filler cap
If replacing the fuel filler c ap, be sure to use
a genuine Vauxhall fuel filler cap for y our
model to ensure full functionality . Dieselengined vehicles hav e special fuel filler
caps.
Fuel is flam mable and explosiv e.
Therefore, avoid naked flames and
spa rk s when handling or in the vicinity of
fuel. Do not smoke! This also ap plies in
places where fuel can only be detected
by its characteristic smell. If you ca n smell
fuel in the vehicle, ha ve the cause thereof
remedied immediately . We recommend
tha t you consult your Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer.
Fuel consumption , fuel, refuellin g
Correct filling depends to a la rg e ex tent on

Di esel pa rticle filt er 3
The diesel particle sy stem filters polluting
soot particles out of the exhaust.
The system c ontains a self-cleaning
function at certain intervals. The filter is
cleaned by burning the soot pa rticles at
high temperature. This procedure runs
autom atic ally under c ertain vehic le
conditions and can tak e up to 25 minutes,
during which tim e fuel consumption may
increase. The smell and the noise that
oc cur are normal.
The system c annot automatically clean
itself under certain v ehicle conditions such
as driving short distances.
If the control indicator ! flashes, you
should continue driving and as soon as the
road and traffic situation permits.
Increase speed to more than 25 mph
(40 km/h) and diesel particle filter cleaning
will start. Cleaning is quicker at faster
speeds and under load. The engine sp eed
should not drop below 2000 rpm. The
control indicator goes off as soon as
cleaning is complete.
We rec om mend that you do not turn the

When the brake peda l is q uick ly and
forcefully depressed, the vehicle is
automatically braked with ma ximum b ra ke
force a mplification in order to obtain the
shortest possib le brak ing distance during
full-on bra king (brake assist).
Maintain steady pressure on the brak e
pedal for as long as full-on brak ing is to
continue. When the brake ped al is
released, the max imum brak e force
amp lification is taken away.
To ensure the full pedal travel can be
utilized, esp ecially in c ase of a fault in one
of the brake circuits, there must be no mats
in the vicinity of the p edals – see page 117.
When the engine is not running, the
support of the brake servo unit disappears
once the brake peda l has b een depressed
once or twice. Braking effect is not reduced ,
but braking requires significantly greater
force. This is especially important to bear in
mind when towing.
Check the brak e lights before sta rting out
on a journey.
129
S hortly a fter sta rting each journey the
effectiveness of the brake sy stem should
be tested at low speed a nd without
inconveniencing other traffic, especially if
the brakes are wet, e.g. a fter the v ehicle
has been washed.
The brake fluid level should be checked
regula rly . If the brake fluid level is too low
and the handbrake is not a pplied, control
indicator R on the instrum ent panel
illuminates - see pag e 26.

Handb rake
Always app ly handbrake firm ly. O n slopes
apply the handbrake as firmly as possible.
The m echanical handbrake acts on the
brakes on the rea r wheels. It engag es
automatically when applied.
To release the handbrak e pull the lever up
slig htly , press the ratchet knob, a nd fully
lower the lev er.
In order to reduce the handbrak e
opera tional forces, depress the footbrake
at the sam e tim e.

applied or if the brake or clutc h fluid level is
too low. Brake fluid - see page 186.
Brakes
Anti-lock brake system (ABS u) 3
9 Warnin g
The ABS continually monitors the b ra ke
system a nd prevents the wheels from
locking, regardless of the road cond itions
and ty re grip.
If there is a fault in ABS, the wheels may
be subject to locking due to braking that
is heavier tha n normal. The ad vantages
of AB S are no longer opera tional. The
vehicle can no longer b e steered and may
swerve.
It starts to regulate the braking p ressure as
soon as a w heel shows a tendency to lock.
The v ehicle remains steera ble, even in the
event of very heavy braking, for instance
on bends or when sw erving to av oid an
obstacle. Even in the ca se of full-on
braking, the ABS makes it p ossible to drive
round an obsta cle without releasing the
brakes.
ABS control is made app arent though a
pulse in the brake peda l and the noise of
the regulation proc ess.
9 Warning
For optimum b ra king, keep the brak e
pedal fully depressed throughout the
braking p rocess, despite the fac t that the
pedal is pulsating. Do not red uce the
pressure on the pedal.
Do not let this special safety feature
tempt y ou into tak ing risks when driving.
Traffic safety can only be achieved by
adopting a responsib le driving style.
131
Y ou can continue driving, provided y ou
drive with care and anticipation.
Control i nd icator u for ABS
The control indicator illuminates for several
second s w hen the ignition is switched on
and the system undergoes a self-c heck at
the same time (m ay be audible). The
sy stem is ready for operation when the
control indicator goes out.
If the control indicator does not go out
after a few sec onds, or if it illuminates while
driving, there is a fault in the ABS . The
brake sy stem rem ains operational without
AB S reg ulation.
Hav e the cause of the fa ult remedied. We
recommend that y ou consult y our Vauxhall
Authorised Repa irer. The sy stem’s
integrated self-diagnostics allows faults to
be quickly remedied .

Fit directional tyres such that they roll in the
direction of trav el. The rolling direction is
indicated by a symbol (e.g. an arrow) on
the sidewall.
Tyres fitted opposing the rolling direction
(such as when changing a ty re) should b e
refitted as soon as possible. This is the only
way to benefit fully from the d esign
properties of the tyre.

Some brands of tyres have a beaded edge
for alloy wheels to protect against
dam age. If wheel trim is used on steel
wheels with bead ed-edge tyres, c om ply
with the following:
z The use of wheel trims and tyres tha t
Vauxhall has approved for the vehicle
and therefore fulfill all requirements for
the relevant combination of wheels and
ty res.
z If the wheel trims and tyres used are not
Vauxhall-approved, the tyres m ust not
hav e a bea ded edge.
9 Warning
Use of unsuitable tyres or wheel trims
could lead to sudden loss of air and
thereby accidents.
Tyre pressure
Check ty re pressure, including the spa re
wheel, at least ev ery 14 day s and prior to
any long journey; the ty res should be
check ed when cold. Don’t forget to check
the spare 3.
Use the valv e cap key to m ake unscrewing
the valve ca ps easier. The k ey is located on
the inside of the ta nk flap.
Incorrect inflation pressures will impair
safety, vehicle handling, comfort and fuel
econom y and w ill increase tyre wear.
Ty re p ressure – see pages 205, 206.
Pressure that is too low 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.
Do not reduce ty re pressure when the tyres
are wa rm. O therwise the pressure may
drop b elow the perm issible minimum when
the tyres cool down.
After having chec ked the tyre pressure,
tig hten the va lv e ca ps using the v alve cap
key .
Hidd en tyre dama ge is not elim inated by
adjusting the tyre pressure.
9 Warnin g
Incorrect ty re pressure could lead to a flat
tyre.

Wheels, tyres
Check tyres regularly for dama ge (foreign
bodies, punctures, cuts, crack s, bulg es in
sidewalls). Chec k wheels for damage. In
the event of dam age or abnorm al wear,
consult a workshop. We recommend your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
9 Warning
Dama ge m ay lead to ty re blow-out.
Tyre condition, wheel condition
Drive over edges slowly and at a rig ht
angle if p ossible. Driving ov er sha rp edges
can lead to hidden ty re damage a nd wheel

General i nformati on
z The danger of aq uap laning is greater if
the ty res are worn.
z Tyres age, even if they a re used only very
little or not at all. A spare wheel which
has not b een used for six years should be
used only in emergencies; drive slowly
when using suc h ty res.
z Never fit used tyres the prev ious history

z So as not to im pair brake cooling , use
only wheel trims app rov ed for use on
your vehicle.
The legally permissible minimum tread
depth (1.6 m m) has been reached when
the tread has worn down as far as one of
the w ear indicators (TWI 1 )). A number of

Caravan and trailer loads 1)
The p ermissible carav an/trailer loads are
vehic le and engine d epend ent max imum
values w hich m ust not be ex ceeded . The
actual c aravan/trailer load is the difference
between the actual g ross weight of the
carava n/trailer and the actual coupling
soc ket load with the carav an/trailer
coupled. When the c aravan/trailer load is
being checked, therefore, only the
carava n/trailer wheels – and not the jockey
wheel – must be standing on the weighing
appa ra tus.
The p ermissible carav an/trailer loads for
your vehicle are given in the v ehicle
documents. Unless otherwise stated, they
are valid for grad ients up to max. 12%.
1)
Ob serve na tion al reg ulations.
The permissible caravan/trailer load should
be fully utilised only by d riv ers who are
adeq uately experienced in towing large or
heavy caravans/trailers.
The permitted caravan/trailer load applies
up to the spec ified incline and up to an
altitude of 1000 metres above sea level.
Since engine power decreases as altitude
increases because of the air b ecoming
thinner, therefore reducing climbing ability ,
the permitted towing weight also decreases
by 10% for every 1000 m etres of a dditional
altitude. The tow ing weight does not have
to be reduced when driving on roads with
slight inclines (less than 8%, e. g.
motorwa ys).
The actual carav an/trailer load plus the
actual gross vehicle w eight of the towing
vehicle must not exceed the ma ximum
permitted towing weight. For exam ple, if
the permitted g ross vehicle weight is
utilised, the trailer/caravan load m ust only
be used until the maxim um perm itted
tow ing weight is rea ched. The max imum
permitted towing weight is shown on the
identification plate – see page 196.
139
Coupling socket load
The coupling socket load is the load
exerted by the trailer/carav an on the
coupling ball. It can be va ried by changing
the weight distribution when loading the
trailer/caravan.
The m aximum permissible coupling socket
load (50 kg) is specified on the towing
equipment identifica tion plate and in the
vehicle d oc um ents. Always aim for the
ma ximum load, especially in the case of
hea vy ca ravans/trailers. The coupling
socket loa d should never fall below 25 kg.
When measuring the coupling socket load ,
ma ke sure that the drawbar of the loaded
trailer/caravan is at the same height as it
will be when the trailer/caravan is coupled
with the towing vehic le loa ded. Particularly
important for trailers/ca ra vans with
tandem ax le.
Rear axle load during towing
The permissib le ax le loads must not be
exceeded.
140
Roof racks, Caravan and trailer to wing
Handling is greatly influenced by the
loading of the trailer/c aravan. Loads
should therefore b e sec ured so that they
cannot slip and be placed in the centre of
the tra iler/ca ra van if possible, i.e. ab ov e
the axle.
In the case of trailers with low driv ing
stability, do not ex ceed a sp eed of 50 mph
(80 km/h); the use of a friction-type
stabiliser is hig hly recomm ended.
Do not drive faster than 50 m ph (80 km/h)
if possible, even in countries where higher
speeds are permitted.
Tyre pressure
Increa se tyre pressure on the towing
vehic le to the value spec ified for a full loa d
(see pages 205, 206). Also check the
infla tion pressure of the sp are wheel a nd
the c aravan/trailer wheels.
Drivin g charac teristics, towing
tips
For c aravans/trailers with b ra ke, attach the
break-a way stop ping ca ble to the ey e (see
arrow in fig ure).
Before a tta ching the trailer/caravan,
lubricate the ball of the trailer/carav an
tow ing devic e. H ow ever, do not lubricate
the ball if a stab iliser, which acts on the
coupling b all, is being used to damp
hunting.
Check caravan/trailer lighting before
starting to drive. The fog tail lights on the
vehicle are deactiv ated w hen towing a
caravan or trailer.
Carava ns/trailers w ith LED turn signals
must hav e a provision that mak es it
possible to monitor standard light bulbs.
Turn signa l control indicator - see page 25.
Ro of racks, Caravan and trailer towin g
Make sure that y ou hav e enough room
when c ornering and avoid sudden
manoeuv res.
If the tra iler/ca ra van starts to sway , drive
more slowly, do not attem pt to correct the
steering and brake sharply if necessary.
If full-on braking is required , depress the
brake pedal as hard as possib le.
Remem ber that the braking distance for
vehic les towing caravans/trailers w ith a nd
without brake is a lways grea ter than that
for vehicles not towing a caravan/trailer.
When driving downhill, towing a cara van/
tra iler subjects the b rakes to a heavier load
than normal. For this reason, select the
sam e gea r as when driving uphill and drive
at a similar speed.
Easytronic 3 in automatic mode will
autom atic ally select the d riv ing
prog ra mme with optimum eng ine braking
effect.
141
The cooling fan is electrically operated. Its
cooling power is therefore independent of
the engine speed.
S ince a c onsiderab le am ount of heat is
generated at high engine speeds and less
at slower speeds, do not shift down when
climb ing hills whilst the vehic le is still coping
with the gradient in the hig her gear.
Diesel engine: On gradients of 10% or
more, do not drive faster than 20 mph
(30 k m/h) in first gear or 30 m ph (50 km /h)
in second g ear.

Starting on inclines
For vehicles with m anual transmission, the
most favourable engine speed when
starting off on an incline is b etween 2500
and 3000 rpm for p etrol engines a nd
between 2000 and 2500 rpm for diesel
engines. Hold engine speed constant,
enga ge c lutch grad ually (let slip), release
handbrake and open throttle. If possible,
the engine speed should not drop during
this procedure.
For vehicles with Easy tronic 3, it is
sufficient to apply full throttle when in
autom atic mode.
Before starting off under extreme
conditions (high c om bination w eight,
mountainous terrain with steep inc lines),
switch off all unnecessary elec trica l loa ds
such as hea ted rear window, a ir
conditioning system 3 and hea ted front
seats 3.

The service interval display takes account
of off-the-road p eriods during which the
battery is d isconnected.
For vehicles with flex ible oil change and
service internval, the interv al is determined
by several pa ra meters stemming from how
the vehicle is used. For this purp ose,
various engine-sp ecific data is continually
recorded in order to ca lculate the
remaining dista nce before the next service.
The remaining distance c an be shown on
the trip od om eter display when the ignition
is off: Press the reset button for the trip
odometer for 2 seconds. InS P and the
remaining distance are then displayed.
If the rema ining d istance is less than
1000 miles (1,500 k m), InS P is d isplay ed
with a remaining distance of 600 miles
(1,000 km ) a fter the ignition is sw itc hed on
and off. I nSP is disp layed for severa l
seconds if the remaining distance is less
than 600 miles (1,000 km). H ave the
nec essary service work carried out within
one week or 300 miles (500 km). Entrust this
work to a Vaux hall Authorised Repairer in
order to avoid loss of w arranty claims.

Further information on maintenance and
the inspec tion system can be found in the
service booklet, which is in the glove
compartment.
Hav e maintenance work, as well as repairs
to the body work and units, carried out by a
professional. We recom mend y our
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, who is
familiar with Vauxhall vehicles and in
possession of the nec essary sp ecial tools
and the latest service instructions from
Vauxhall. In order to avoid invalida tion of
any w arranty claim, it is especially
important to entrust work to a Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer during the warranty
period. For further information, see the
Service Booklet.
Separ ate anti-cor rosion servi ce
Hav e this service performed once a year,
either as part of an Annua l Inspection or

consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
A note on safety
Alw ays switch ignition off w hen perform ing
checks in the engine c om partment
(e.g. checking the brake fluid lev el or the
engine oil level) due to risk of injury from
liv e c ables and rotating parts.
9 Warning
The cooling fan is controlled by a
thermoswitch and ca n therefore start
unexp ectedly even if the ignition is
switched off. Risk of injury.
Electronic ignition systems generate very
high voltages. Do not touch the ignition
system; hig h voltage can be fatal.
N ever carry out any repairs or adjustment
and m aintenance work on the vehicle
y ourself. This especially applies to the
eng ine, chassis and safety parts. You may
unwittingly infringe the p rov isions of the
law and, by not performing the work
properly , endanger y ourself and other
road users.
Checking and topping u p fluids
To aid identification, the cap s used when
topping up engine oil, coolant and wash
fluid as w ell as the oil d ip stick are coloured
y ellow.

Maintenance, Inspection System
Engine oil
Information on engine oils is found in the
Service Booklet.
Eng ine oi l level and consum ption
All engines c onsume engine oil for
tec hnical reasons. The engine oil
consump tion can only be assessed a fter
driving a long distance, and may be above
the specified v alue during the initial stage
(run-in period). Frequent driv ing at high
rev s causes engine oil consum ption to
increase.
9 Warning
Do not a llow the engine oil lev el to drop
below the minimum level!
Engine oil l ev el chec k,
topping up engine oil
The engine oil lev el must be check ed w ith
the vehicle horizonta l and with the engine
(w hich m ust be at operating temp erature)
switched off. Wait at least five minutes
before checking the level to allow the
normal engine oil accumulation in the
engine to d rain back into the oil pan
In vehicles w ith engine oil level check 3 , the
engine oil level is checked automatically see p age 27. It is p artic ularly advisable to
check the engine oil lev el b efore emb arking
on a long journey. .
9 Warning
It is the owner’ s responsibility to maintain
the correct level of an appropriate quality
oil in the engine.
To check the engine oil level, wipe off the
dipstick and insert it up to the stop m ark on
the ha ndle. Top up engine oil if the lev el
has fallen to the MIN mark.
Eng ine oil should never pass the up per
MAX m ark on the d ipstick. Ex cess engine
oil must be d ra ined or suctioned out. I f the
eng ine oil lev el is abov e the MAX mark,
there is a danger of engine or catalytic
converter dam age.
The amount filled must be between the
MI N and MA X marks – see pag e 209.
Mainten ance, Inspection System
When topping up, use the same brand of
engine oil that was used during the
previous oil change. O bserve the
inform ation in the Service Book let.
When closing the cap, insert it straight and
screw it in all the way .
Ca pacities – see p age 209.
Engine oil c hange, oil filt er change
Change the oil at the disp la yed service
intervals.
We rec om mend that you use genuine
Vauxhall engine oil filters.
183
9 Warnin g
We recom mend that you entrust engine
oil and filter changes to a Va ux ha ll
Authorised Repairer, who will be fa miliar
with the requirements of the law as
regards disp osal of used oil and can thus
help to protect the environment a nd your
health.

Diesel fuel filter
Coo lant
Check the fuel filter for any water residue
during ea ch engine oil cha nge.
We recommend that you consult y our
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
During operation the system is pressurised.
The temp erature ma y therefore rise briefly
to ov er 100 °C.
Illumination of A indicates wa ter in the
fuel filter 3.
Hav e fuel filter checked at shorter intervals
if the v ehicle is subjected to extrem e
opera ting conditions such as hig h humidity
(primarily in coastal areas), extrem ely high
or low outside temperatures a nd
sub stantially v arying day tim e a nd nig httime temp eratures.
The glycol-ba sed coolant provides
exc ellent corrosion protection for the
heating and cooling systems as well as
antifreeze protection down to ap prox .
–28 ° C. I t rema ins in the cooling system
throughout the year and need not b e
cha ng ed.
Use of certain a ntifreezes c an lead to
engine dam age. We therefore rec om mend
that you use antifreez es that have been
approved by Vauxhall.
9 Warning
Antifreeze is a d ang er to health; it must
therefore be k ept in the original conta iner
and out of the reach of children.
Anti freeze a nd corrosion prot ect ion
Before the sta rt of the cold weather season,
have the coolant checked for correct
concentration using a calibrated
hydrometer. We recom mend that you
consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repa irer.
The antifreeze content must guarantee
frost protection down to approx. –28 °C . An
insufficient concentration will reduce frost
and corrosion protection. Add antifreez e if
nec essary .
If c oolant loss is topped up with wa ter,
have concentration check ed a nd add
antifreeze if necessary.
Mainten ance, Inspection System
Top up antifreez e. I f no antifreeze is
available, top up w ith c lean tap water.
If tap water is una vailable, distilled water
can be used.
C ool ant temp era ture
If the temperature gauge is in the red zone,
coolant temperature is too high. Chec k the
coolant lev el im mediately:
After topping up w ith tap or distilled water,
ha ve the antifreez e concentration
checked, a nd antifreeze added if
necessary. H ave the cause of the coolant
loss remedied. We recommend that you
consult your Vaux hall Authorised Rep airer.
z Coolant level low:
Top up coolant. Pay attention to the
instructions given under "Antifreeze and
corrosion protection" and " Coolant
level". Have the cause of coolant loss
remedied . We recommend that you
consult your Vauxhall Authorised
Repairer.
When closing the c ap, insert it straight and
screw it in all the way.
Coola nt level
Hardly any losses occur since the cooling
system is sealed and it is thus rarely
necessary to top up the c oolant.
The c oolant in the compensation tank
should b e slightly above the mark KALT/
CO LD with the cooling sy stem cold. It rises
when the engine is w arm a nd falls ag ain as
it cools. If it drops below the marking in this
case, it should be topped up to a lev el just
above the marking.
9 Warning
Allow engine to cool d ow n before
removing coolant filler cap. Remove filler
cap c arefully so that pressure c an escape
slowly, otherwise there is a risk of
scalding.

Brake fluid
Windscreen wiper
Brake fluid is hy groscopic, i.e. it absorbs
water. If the brakes b ecome hot, suc h as
when d riv ing on long downhill stretches,
vap our bubb les can occur in the w ater,
which can have an extrem ely adverse
effect on braking power (depending on the
proportion of w ater).
Clea r vision is essential for safe driv ing.
The fluid change intervals specified in the
Service Booklet m ust therefore be
observed.
9 Warning
We recommend that y ou have brake fluid
cha nged by a Vauxhall Authorised
Repairer, who will be familiar with the
requirements of the law as regards
disposal of brake fluid and can thus help
to protect the environment and your
health.
Regularly check the windsc reen wiper for
their clea ning effectiveness.
We rec om mend that wiper b la des be
replaced at least onc e a yea r.
If the windows are dirty, op erate the
wind screen wash before switching the
wiper on in order to prev ent wiper blade
wear.
Do not switch windscreen wiper on if

Waxing
Polishing
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.
Wax your vehicle regularly, in pa rticular
after it has been washed using shampoo
and at the latest when wa ter no longer
forms beads on the pa intwork, otherwise
the paintwork will d ry out.
Polishing is necessary only if the pa int has
become dull or if solid deposits hav e
become attached to it.
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.
When using c ar washes, follow the relevant
instructions of the car wash facility. The
windscreen wiper a nd rear w indow
wiper 3 m ust be off - see pag e 15. R emove
the a ntenna 3 and roof rack 3.
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.
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.
O bserve na tional regulations.
Also wax edg es a nd folds on op ened doors
and flaps as well a s the area s they cover.
Paintwork polish with silicone forms a
protec tiv e film, making w axing
unnecessary.
Plastic body parts should not be treated
with wax and polish.
Use Metallic Paintwork Wax on vehicles
with a metallic-effect paint finish.
Wheels
Use a pH-neutral w heel c leaning agent to
clean the wheels.
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
Plastic and rubber parts
Interio r and u pholstery
Repair small area s of p aint damage
suc h as stone im pacts, scratches etc.
immediately using a Va ux ha ll touch-up
applicator or Vauxhall sp ra y and touch-up
paint before rust can form . If rust has
alrea dy formed, ha ve the c ause remedied.
We recommend that you consult y our
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. Please also
pay attention to surfaces and edg es
beneath the v ehicle where which rust ma y
have form ed unnoticed for some time.
If the carw ash does not c lean plastic and
rubb er parts adequately , use cleaner
suitable for vehicle interiors. Do not use a ny
other agent, and in particular do not use
solvents or petrol.
C lean the vehicle interior, including the
instrument panel fascia, using interior
cleaner.
Do not use high-pressure jet clea ners.
C lean fabric upholstery w ith a vacuum
cleaner and brush. To remove stains, use
cleaner tha t is suitable for both fabrics and
vinyl.
Exterio r lights
Headlight and other protective lig ht bezels
are made of plastic. If they require
additional cleaning after the vehicle has
been washed, clea n them with C ar
Shamp oo. Do not use any ab ra sive or
caustic agents, do not use an ice scraper,
and do not clean them dry.
Wheels and tyres
Do not use high-pressure jet clea ners.
The instrum ent panel is only to be cleaned
with a soft, da mp cloth.
Do not use cleaners such a s a cetone,
carbon tetrachloride, pa int thinner, p aint
remover, nail varnish remover, washing
powder or bleach. Petrol is also unsuitable.
O pen v elcro fastenings in your clothing

Windows
Windscreen wiper blades
Locks
When cleaning the heated rea r window 3,
mak e sure tha t the heating element on the
inside of the wind ow is not d amaged.
Wax , such as that used in car washes, can
cause streaks to form on the w indscreen
when the w iper is used.
Use a soft lint-free cloth or chamois leather
in conjunction with Wind ow Cleaner and
Insect Remover.
Smearing wiper blades can be c leaned with
a soft c loth and Vauxhall Windscreen
Wash Solvent, and replaced if necessary –
see p age 186.
The lock s are lub ric ated with a high-grade
lock cylinder grease at the factory.
Vauxhall lock cy linder grease prevents the
locks from freezing up. Only use de-icing
agent in em ergencies, as they have a
degreasing effect and will im pair the
function of the loc ks. After using a d e-icing
agent, have the lock s re-greased. We
recommend that you entrust this to your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
Vauxhall Windscreen Wash Solvent is
suitab le for de-icing windows.
For mechanical removal of ice, use a
commercially a vailable sharp-edged ice
scraper. Press the sc ra per firmly against
the g lass so that no dirt can get und er it
and scratch the glass.
Vehicle care
Engine co mpartment
Underbody
Clean painted surfaces in the engine
compartment like any other p ainted
surface.
Your vehicle has a factory-app lied PVC
undercoating in the wheel arches
(including the longitudinal mem bers) which
prov ides permanent protec tion and needs
no special maintenance. The surfaces of
the vehicle underbody not covered by PVC
are provided with a durable p rotective wax
coating in critic al areas.
For best results, wash and wax the eng ine
compartment before and after winter.
Before washing the engine, cover the
alternator and brake fluid reservoir with
plastic sheeting.
When washing the engine with a steamjet cleaner, do not direct the steam jet
at com ponents of the Anti-lock Bra ke
Sy stem 3 , the automatic air conditioning
system 3 or the b elt 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.
Do not use high-pressure jet cleaners.
On vehicles which are washed frequently in
autom atic 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.
195
C aution - c om mercially available 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.
C heck p rotective wax c oa ting and , if
nec essary , have it restored to perfec t
condition.

Fuel consumption,
CO 2 emission s
Directive 80/1268/EEC (last c hanged by
1999/100/EC) has applied for the measurement of fuel consumption sinc e 1996.
The direc tiv e is oriented to actual driving
practices: Urba n driving is rated at
approx. 1/ 3 and off-road 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 stem from the EU b ase model
with standard equipment.
The calculation of fuel consumption as
spec ified by directive 1999/100/EC takes
acc ount of the v ehicle’ s kerb weight,
ascertained in accordance with the said
regula tion. Optional ex tras may result in
slightly higher fuel consumption and CO 2
emission lev els than those quoted.
To convert l/100 k m into mpg, divide 282
by num ber of litres/100 km.

Weights, payload and roof load
The p ayload is the difference between
the p ermitted gross vehicle w eight (see
identification plate, page 196) and the EC
kerb weight.
To calculate the kerb weight, enter the
data for y our vehicle below:
z Kerb weight from
Ta ble 1,
pages 203 to 204
+ .... .... .... .. kg
z Weight of heavy
accessories from Table 2,
page 204
+ .... .... .... .. kg
The total
= .... .... .... .. kg
is the EC k erb w eight.
O ptional equipment and accessories
increase the kerb weight, which m eans that
the p ayload will also change slig htly.
Note the weights given in the vehicle
documents and the identification plate.
The combined total of front a nd rear ax le
loa ds must not exceed the perm issible
gross vehicle weight. For exa mple, if
the front axle is b earing its max imum
permissib le load, the rear axle can only
bear a load that is eq ua l to the gross
