In Brief
Airbag System
The a irb ag system c onsists of several
separate systems.
Front airb ag system
The front airbag system will be triggered
in the event of a serious accid ent inv olv ing
a frontal im pact and forms safety c ushions
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.
Side airb ag system
The sid e airbag is triggered in the event of
a side-on c ollision to form a safety cushion
for the driver or front passenger in the
respective door area. This substantially
reduces the risk of injury to the upp er body
and pelv is.

Three-stage safety system
Com prising:
z Three-point seat belts.
z Belt tensioners at the seats.
z Airbag sy stems for driver and front
passenger.
The three stages are activated in sequence
depending on the sev erity of the accident:
z The automatic seat belt locking d evices
prevent the belt strap from b eing pulled
out and thus ensure that the vehicle
occ upa nts are retained in their seats.
z The seat belts are p ulled down at the
belt buckles. This m eans the b elts fit
snugly, the occupants are d ecelerated
early with the vehic le and the body
load ing is reduced .
z The airbag systems are also triggered in
the ev ent of severe accidents and form
a safety c ushion for the occupants.
9 Warning
The a irba g sy stems serve to supplem ent
the three-point seat belts and belt
tensioners. The seat belts m ust therefore
alway s b e worn. Disregard of these
instructions may lead to injuries or
enda nger life. Vehicle p assengers should
be informed accordingly.
Alw ays read the instructions prov ided w ith
the child restraint system!
Three-point seat belts
The vehicle is equipped with three-point
seat belts with automatic retrac tors and
locking d evices, allowing freedom of body
mov ement although the spring tensioned
belts always ensure a snug fit.
For information on correct seating position
– see pages 47, 48, 56.
The belt has a " vehicle sensitive retra ctor"
which is designed to lock during hea vy
acc eleration or deceleration in any
direction.
Seats, Interior
9 Warning
Put on your seat belt b efore each trip –
even in urban traffic – it can sav e your life!
Pregnant women m ust alwa ys wear
a seat belt – see pa ge 54.
In the event of an accident, persons not
wearing seat belts endanger their fellow
occupants and themselv es.
Control indicator X 3 for the seat belt –
see page 68.
Seat b elts are designed to be used by only
one person at a time. They are not suitable
for any one und er 12 years of age or 150 cm .
For children up to 12 y ears of age, we
recommend the Vauxhall child restraint
sy stem – see pa ge 55.
51
Testing the belts
C heck all p arts of the belt system
periodica lly for damage and func tion.
Replace damaged components. After an
accident, have the belts and triggered belt
tensioners replaced by a workshop.
Do not perform any altera tions on the
belts, their anchorages, the automatic
retrac tors or the belt buck les.
Mak e sure that b elts are not da maged
or trapped by sharp-edged objec ts.
52
Seats, Interior
Belt tension ers
The sea t belts are fitted with belt tensioners.
The seat belts are pulled down at the
buckles on a front or rear impa ct above

When the ignition is turned on, the control
indicator comes on for a pprox. 4 seconds.
If it does not come on, or if it does not go
out after 4 sec onds, or if it comes on while

Using the belts
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 buc kle. Backrest must
not be tilted too far ba ck as this would
affect the operation of the sea t belts;
recomm ended tilting angle approx . 25°.
The lap belt must be straight and lie snug ly
against the body. Tighten lap belt at
frequent intervals whilst driving by tugging
diagonal part of belt.
9 Warning
O n pregnant women in particular, the
lap belt must be positioned as low as
possible across the pelv is 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
ha rd or fragile objects in the pockets of
your clothing (e.g. ballpoint pens, keys,
spectacles) because these could cause
injury. Do not place any objec ts (e.g.
ha ndb ags, mobile phones) b etween the
belt and your body.
Remov ing the belt
To remove the belt, depress the red
pushb utton on the b uc kle; the belt will

Child restraint systems 3
When using a child restraint sy stem, follow
the instructions for installation and use.
The c ountry in which y ou a re travelling

systems on certain seats. Alw ays comply
with the local or na tional regulations.
Selecting the right system
Your child should travel fa cing backwa rd s
in the c ar for as long as possible. A child
has a very weak neck area and in the ev ent
of a n accident is less likely to suffer injury in
a rearward-facing, semi-lying position
than if seated upright.

the front airbags are trigg ered at low
vehicle speed.
z Impact against a yielding obstacle (such
as another vehicle): The front airba gs are
only triggered a t a higher vehicle speed.
Seats, Interior
When trigg ered , the front airbags inflate in
milliseconds and form a safety cushion for
driver and front passeng er. Forward
movement is checked and the risk of
injuries to the upper body a nd head
thereby substantially reduced.
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 a nd head restraint are correctly
adjusted: Adjust the driver’s seat
according to the 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 as far back as possible, with the
back rest upright (see pa ges 46, 47, 48).
Do not place the head, b od y, hands or
feet on the c ov ers of the airbag sy stems.
Do not place any objects in the area
in which the a irb ags inflate. Im portant

Heating and ventilation system,
air conditioning system 3
Ventilation, heating and cooling 3 a re
combined into one unit that is d esigned to
prov ide com fort regardless of the season,
weather or outside temperature.
When cooling 3 is activated, the air is
cooled and dried.
The heating unit heats the air as required
in a ll op erating modes depending on the
position of the temperature switch. The air
supply can be adjusted to suit requirements
by means of the fan.
The buttons for cooling n and a ir
recirculation 4 are only found on
versions with optional air conditioning
sy stem 3.
Air conditioning system 3 - see page 98.
Air vents
The interior ventilation can be adjusted to
a comfortab le level by ad justing the

Drivin g and Operation
Driving hints
The first 600 mil es / 1000 km
Drive your vehicle at v arious speeds.
Do not use full throttle. Never allow
the engine to lab our at low revs.
Make good use of all gea rs. Depress
the a ccelerator peda l a max imum of
about 3 /4 of the available pedal travel
in all gears.
Do not drive faster than three quarters
of max imum speed.
Do not brake unnecessarily hard for the
first 125 miles (200 km ).
Never coa st with engine not running
Many units will not function in this situation
(e. g. brak e serv o unit, elec tric power
steering). Driving in this manner 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.
Electri c power steering
If the power-assisted steering fails when
being towed with the engine switched off,
the vehicle can still be steered, but
considera bly more forc e is req uired.
Dr iving in mountainous terrai n
The cooling fan is electrically operated. Its
cooling p ow er is therefore independent of
the engine speed.
Since a considerable amount of heat is
genera ted at high engine speeds and less
at slower speeds, do not shift d ow n when
climbing hills whilst the v ehicle is still coping
with the gradient in the higher g ear.
Sw itching off the engi ne
When y ou switch off, fans in the eng ine
compa rtm ent may continue running for
a tim e to c ool 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.
Vehicles with turbocharged engine
After running at high eng ine speeds or high
eng ine loads, op erate the engine briefly at
a low load or run in neutral for approx.
30 seconds before switching off in order
to protec t the turbocharger.
Sa ve energy – m ore miles
Plea se observe the running-in hints on the
this pa ge and the tips for sav ing energy on
the following pa ges.
Good, technically correc t and ec onomical
driving ensures m aximum d urab ility and
performa nc e for your vehicle.
Driving an d Operation
O verrun
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 on m anual vehicles, do not
release the clutc h. To prev ent dam age to
the c atalytic converter, overrun cut-off is
tem porarily deactivated when the catalytic
converter tem perature is high.
Wa rming 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 operating temp erature.
Vehicles with turbocharged engine
Flow -g enerated noises may be aud ible
if the a ccelerator is released quickly on
account of air flow in the turbocharger.
Correct g ear selection
Do not race your engine whilst in neutral or
with a low gear selected. Driv ing 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.
Eng ine sp eed
Drive in a low engine speed range for each
gear as much as possible.
After a cold start, the Easytronic 3 does
not switch to higher g ears until the speed
increases when it is in automatic m ode.
This allows the ca ta lytic converter to
quic kly reach the temperature that is
required for optim um em ission reduction.
Change dow n
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 op era tion
Alw ays dep ress the clutch ped al hard to
the floor to prevent shifting difficulties
and transmission d amage.
When driving do not use the pedal as a foot
rest; this will cause substantial clutch w ear.
109
C ool ing fan
The cooling fan is controlled v ia a therm oswitch and therefore only runs if necessa ry .
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.
Bat tery ca re
When driving slowly or when the vehicle is
stationary, e.g. in slow urban traffic, stopand-go traffic or traffic jams, turn off all
unnecessa ry electrical loads where possible
(e. g. hea ted rear window, heated seats).
De-clutch w hen sta rting in order to relieve
the strain on the starter and the ba ttery.

Ener gy and environm ent-conscious d riving
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:
"m ore miles – 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 166.
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.
Warm ing 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 and 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 .
I dling
z The eng ine also consumes fuel when
idling .
z If you have to wait for more than one
minute, it is worthwhile sw itching off the
engine. Five minutes of idling corresponds
to app roximately 0.6 miles (1 km) of
driv ing.
Driving an d Operation
O verrun
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 109.
z To enable the overrun cut-off to come
into action and sav e fuel, do not
accelerate or d e-clutch during overrun.
Corr ect gear sel ec tion
z High revs increase engine w ear and fuel
consumption.
z Do not rac e y our engine. Av oid driving
at high engine speeds.
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 .
High speed
z The higher the speed, the higher the
consump tion and the noise lev el. At
top speed, you consume a great deal
of fuel and produc e excessive noise
and exhaust emissions.
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, w ithout losing

Extr em e d riving 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

112
Drivin g and Operation
Fuel consumption
Fuel consump tion is determined und er
specific driv ing cond itions – see page 166.
Special equipment increases the weight of
the v ehicle. As a result, they can increase
fuel consump tion and reduce the specified
max imum speed.
There is increased friction betw een engine
and transm ission parts during the first 600
miles (1000 km ). This increases fuel
consump tion.
Fuel
Fuel for petrol engines
Normal commercial high-quality fuels
with a maxim um ethanol content of 5 % in
accordance with DIN EN 228 are suitable
(for cataly tic c onverter see pa ge 114, for
octane numbers see page 164). The quality
thereof has considerable effect on the
performance, running and service life of the
engine. The additives mixed with the fuel
are extrem ely important. For this reason
you must only refuel with high-quality fuels
conta ining additives.
Fuels with ethanol content greater than 5%
do not comply w ith DI N EN 228 a nd must
not b e used unless the v ehicle ha s b een
specifically develop ed a nd approved for
these fuels.
Fuel with too low an octane number can
cause pinking. Vauxhall cannot be held
lia ble for resulting dama ge.
Petrol with a higher octane number can
always be used.
The ignition tim ing is a utoma tica lly
adjusted according to the grade of fuel
used (octane number) – see page 164.
Use of petrol w ith a n oc ta ne rating of 95
will ensure economica l driving.
Fuel for diesel engi nes
Diesel engines m ust be operated only on
comm ercially av ailable diesel fuel meeting
the specifications of DIN EN 590.
S ince Ja nuary 2004, some oil comp anies
have mix ed their diesel fuel with upto 5%
Bio fuel (FAME = Fatty Acid Methyl Esters)
like RME (Rape-Oil Methyl Ester). This is in
acc orda nce with the current DIN EN 590
and d oes not ha rm the fuel/injection
system. The characteristics of a diesel fuel
mix ed up with 5% Bio fuel (FAME) do not
differ from conventional diesel fuel and do
not influence the vehicle’s driveability.
I mporta nt: Diesel fuel m ixed with 5% FAM E
acc ording to DI N EN 590 m ust not be
confused with 100% Bio Diesel, which is not
to be used in Vauxhall eng ines.
The flow and filterability of diesel fuel a re
temperature-dependent.
Diesel fuels w ith improved low temp erature
properties are therefore a vailable on the
ma rk et during the winter months. Make
sure that y ou fill the tank with winter fuel
before the start of the cold weather
season.
Additives can be used with diesel fuels with
winter prop erties that are guaranteed by
the manufa cturer 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 eng ines.

rea diness is indicated by a short tone.
If the vehicle slowly gets close to an
obstacle w hile rev ersing, an intermittent
acoustic signal is audible in the passenger
compartment when the vehicle tail is less
than one m etre from the obstacle. The
interval between the signals becomes
shorter as the distance is reduced. If the
distance is less than 30 c m, a continuous
signa l is aud ible.
9 Warning
Under certain circumstances, v arious
reflective surfaces on objects or c lothing
as well as ex ternal noise sources may
cause the system to fail to d etec t

Brake system
The b ra kes are an important factor for
traffic sa fety.
To improve effectiveness, do not b ra ke
unnecessarily hard for the first 125 miles
(200 km) after new brake pads have been
fitted.
Brake pad wear must not exceed a
specified limit. Regular maintenance as
detailed in the Service Book let is therefore
of the utm ost importance for traffic safety.
123
Have worn brake pads replaced by
a workshop.
Tested a nd approved pads give optimum
braking performance.
Brake pads worn to the minimum level
cause grinding noises. You may continue
to drive but ha ve the pads replaced as
soon as possible. To change the pad s,
contact a workshop.
Brak e assi st
If the brake pedal is operated with a
powerful push, the vehic le is a utoma tica lly
brak ed a t full b ra king power in ord er to
achieve the shortest p ossib le brak ing
distance when full-on brak ing occurs
(braking a ssistant).
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 .
124
Drivin g and Operation
Foot brak e
The foot brake comprises two independent
brake circuits.
If one brake circuit fa ults, the vehicle can
still be b ra ked with the other b ra ke c ircuit.
However the braking effect will occ ur a t
a lower pedal position and considera bly
more force is required. The braking
distance is longer. Contact a w ork shop
before continuing to drive.
To ensure that full pedal travel can be
utilized, espec ia lly in case of a fa ult in one
of the brak e circuits, there must b e no mats
in the vicinity of the pedals – see page 109.
When the engine is not running, the support
of the brake servo unit disa ppears once the
brake p edal has been depressed once or
tw ice. Braking effect is not reduced, b ut
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.
Shortly after starting ea ch journey the
effectiveness of the brake system should
be tested at low sp eed and without
inconveniencing other traffic, especially if
the brakes are wet, e.g. after the vehicle
ha s b een washed.
The brake fluid lev el should be checked
regularly. If the brak e fluid level is too low
and the hand brake is not a pplied, control
indica tor R on the instrument panel

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS u )
ABS continuously monitors the v ehicle’ s
brak e system and prev ents the wheels from
locking regardless of the road condition
and ty re grip.
It starts to regula te the braking pressure as
soon as a wheel shows a tendency to lock .
The v ehicle rem ains steerable, even in the
event of very heavy bra king, for instance
on bends or when sw erving to avoid an
obsta cle. Even in the ca se of full-on braking,
the ABS makes it possible to driv e round an
obsta cle without releasing the brak es.
ABS control is mad e ap parent thoug h
a pulse in the brak e 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 fact that
the pedal is pulsa ting. Do not reduce
the pressure on the peda l.
Do not let this special safety feature

– see pa ge 127.
Wheel trim on steel wheels could come into
contact with parts of the cha in and be
dam aged . Remove the wheel trim – see
pag e 140.
See page 170 for restric tions.
Tyre cha ins may only be used at sp eeds up
to 30 mph (50 km/h) and, when trav elling
on roads that are free of snow , they m ay be
used for brief periods only since they are
subject to rap id wea r on a hard road a nd
ma y sna p.
Winter tyres im prove safety at
tem peratures below 7 °C and should
therefore be fitted on all the wheels.
The d esign of summ er tyres mea ns they
have limited qualities for winter driving.
If the maxim um perm issible speed for the
winter ty res is less than that of the vehicle,
a notice ind icating the ma ximum
permissible speed for the tyres must be
affixed within the driver’s field of v ision 1).
If y ou use the spare wheel when it is fitted
with a summer tyre, the v ehicle’ s
driveability may be affected, espec ia lly on
slip pery roa d surfaces. Ob ta in a
rep la cement for the faulty ty re as soon a s
possible, and hav e the wheel balanced
and fitted to the v ehicle.
Tyre chains 3
Limitations and further information – see
page 170.
Wheel c overs 3
If the wheel trims a nd ty res used are not
Vaux hall-approved , make sure that the
tyres do not have a beaded ed ge – see
page 127.
Alw ays use fine mesh chains that add no
more than 10 mm to the tyre tread and
the inboard sides (including chain lock).

Va ries fro m country to country o n account of
nationa l regula tions .
131
Ty re chains are only permitted on the drive
wheels (front axle). They must be fitted to
the tyres sym metrically in order to achiev e
a concentric fit.
Temporary spare wheel
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 on the rear ax le
and transfer one of the rea r wheels to the
front axle.

Vehicle care
When caring for your vehicle, observe all
nationa l environmental regulations,
particularly when washing it.
Regula r, thorough care helps to imp rov e
the a ppearance of your vehicle and
maintain its value ov er the years. It is also
prerequisite for warranty claim s for any
paint or corrosion dam age. The following
pages contain tip s for vehicle care which, if
used properly, w ill help comba t the
unavoidable damag ing effects of the
env ironment.

Wa shing
The p aintwork of your vehicle is ex posed to
environmental influences, e.g. continuous
cha ng es in wea ther conditions, industrial
waste gases and dust or thawing salts,
so wa sh and wax y our v ehicle regularly.
When using automatic ca r washes, selec t
a programme which includes wax ing .
Bird d ropp ings, dead insec ts, resin, pollen
and the like should be cleaned off
imm ediately, a s they contain aggressive
constituents which can ca use paint
dam age.
When using car washes, follow the
instructions of the c ar wash m anufacturer.
S witc h off the windsc reen w ip er – see
pag es 11, 87. U nscrew antenna rod 3 .
If y ou wash your vehicle by hand, make
sure that the insides of the wings are also
thoroughly rinsed out.
C lean edges and folds on opened doors
and flaps as well as the a reas they cover.
Thoroughly rinse off a nd leather-off the
vehicle. Rinse leather frequently. Use
sepa ra te leathers for paint and window
surfac es: rem nants of wax on the windows
will im pair vision.
O bserve national regulations.
Self-help, vehicle care
Waxing
Wax y our vehicle regularly, in particula r
after it ha s b een washed using shampoo
and at the latest when water no longer
forms bead s on the paintwork, otherwise
the p aintwork will dry out.
Also wax edges and folds on opened doors
and flaps as well as the areas they cover.
Polishing
Polishing is necessary only if the paint has
become dull or if solid deposits have
become attached to it.
Paintwork polish w ith silicone forms
a p rotective film , mak ing waxing
unnecessary.
Plastic body p arts should not b e treated
with wax and polish.
Use M etallic Paintwork Wax on v ehicles
with a m etallic-effect paint finish.
Wheels
Use a pH-neutral wheel cleaning agent to
clean the wheels.
Wheels are painted and can b e treated
with the same agents as the body. For alloy
wheels we recommend use of Alloy Wheel
Preserver.
Pa intwork dam age
Repair m inor p aintwork damage such as
stone chips, scratches etc. im mediately
using the touch-up pen or spra y before
rust forms. If rust ha s already formed,
ha ve a workshop eliminate the cause.
Also check the surfaces and edges fa cing
the road surfa ce on which rust may ha ve
developed for some time unnoticed.
Exterior light s
Head lig ht and other p rotective light bezels
are m ade of plastic. If they require
additiona l cleaning after the vehicle has
been washed, clean them with Car
Shampoo. Do not use a ny abrasive or
caustic a gents, do not use an ice scraper,
and do not clea n them dry .
159
Plastic and rubb er parts
If the carwash does not clean plastic
and rubber parts adequately, use cleaner
suita ble for vehicle interiors. Do not use any
other a gent, and in particular do not use
solvents or petrol.
Do not use high-pressure jet c leaners.
Wheels a nd tyr es
Do not use high-pressure jet c leaners.

Self-help, vehicle care
Interior and upholstery
Clean the v ehicle interior, includ ing the
instrument panel fascia, using interior
cleaner.
Wi nd ows
When cleaning the heated rear w indow,
make sure that the hea ting element on the
inside of the window is not dama ged.
The instrum ent panel should only be
cleaned using a soft damp cloth.
Use a soft lint-free c loth or cham ois leather
in conjunction with Window C leaner and
Insect Rem over.
Clean fabric upholstery with a vacuum
cleaner and brush. To remove stains, use
cleaner that is suitable for both fabrics and
vinyl.
Do not use cleaning agents such a s
acetone, tetrachloride, p aint thinner, paint
rem ov er, na il varnish remover, washing
powder or bleach. Petrol is also unsuitable.
O pen velcro fasteners on clothing could
dam age seat upholstery . Mak e sure that
velcro fasteners are closed.
Seat b el ts
Always keep seat belts clean and dry.
Clean only with lukew arm wa ter or Cleaner.
Vauxhall Windscreen Wash Solvent is
suitable for defrosting w indows.
For mechanical rem oval of ice, use a
commerc ia lly availab le sharp-edg ed ice
scraper. Press the scraper firmly ag ainst
the glass so that no dirt c an get under it
and scra tch the glass.
Wi nd sc reen wi per blad es
Wax , such as that used in car washes, can
cause streaking on the wind screen when
the wiper is used.
Smearing wiper blades can be c leaned with
a soft c loth and Vauxhall Windscreen
Wash Solvent, and replaced if necessary –
see p age 184.
Locks
The locks are factory-lubricated with a hig h
quality lock cylinder grease. This p revents
the loc ks from freez ing. Only use Va ux ha ll
De-icer in urg ent cases as this destroys the
grease and d amages the func tion of the
locks. After using Vaux hall De-icer, ha ve a
workshop re-grease the loc ks.
Self-help, vehicle care
Eng ine compar tment
Clean painted surfaces in the engine
compartment like any other p ainted
surface.
It is adv isable to wash the engine
compartment before and after winter and
preserve it with wax. Before engine
washing, cover alternator and brak e
fluid reservoir w ith p la stic sheeting .
When washing the engine with a steam-jet
cleaner, do not d irect the steam jet at
components of the Anti-lock Brak e
Sy stem 3 , the automatic air conditioning
system 3 or the b elt drive and its
components.
Engine washing also rem ov es subsequently
applied protec tiv e wa x. Therefore after
washing, have a workshop protect the
engine, parts of the b ra king sy stem in the
engine bay, axle elements with steering ,
body elements and cav ities, thoroughly
with protective wax .
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.
Underbody
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.
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.
Caution - commercially av ailable bitum en/
rubb er ma terials can dama ge the PVC
coating. We recommend that you have
underbody w ork carried out b y a
work shop, who know s the prescribed
materials and has experience in the use
thereof.
161
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.
Retra ctabl e steel roof
C oa t all seals, such as on the roof and the
windscreen fra me, with silicone oil from
time to time. A consta nt close conta ct
between the fine rubb er lips and the
sealing faces ensures a tight fit and low
closing forces.
Do not use high-pressure jet c leaners.

Fuel consumption,
CO 2 emission s
Directive 80/1268/EEC (last c hanged by
1999/100/EC) has ap plied for the
measurement of fuel consumption since
1996.
The direc tiv e is oriented to actual driving
practices: Urban driv ing is rated at approx.
1/ and off-road d riv ing with approx.
3
2/ (urban and extra-urban consum ption).
3
Cold starts and acceleration phases are
also tak en into consideration.
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 values are b ased on the EU base 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.

kerb weight.
Optional equip ment and accessories
increase the kerb weight, whic h means
that the pay loa d will also change slightly.
Note w eight ranges in the vehicle

In spec tion system
In order to guarantee econom ica l a nd safe
vehicle operation and to mainta in the va lue
of your vehicle, it is of vital importa nce that
all maintenanc e work is carried out at the
proper intervals as specified.
For vehicles with fixed oil change and
serv ice intervals, InSP appears in the
odometer display when the ignition is
turned on before the service work becomes
due: arrange for the next service to b e
performed by a work shop within one week
or 300 miles (500 km).
The distance rem aining c an be displa yed
with the ig nition turned off: press the reset
button for the trip odometer for app rox .
2 seconds, InS P and the remaining
distance appea r.
If the rema ining d istance is less than 1000
miles (1500 k m), InsP is displayed with a
remaining distance of 600 m iles (1000 k m)
when the ignition is switched on and off.
I nsP is displayed for several seconds if the
remaining distance is less tha n 300 miles
(500 km). Hav e the service work that is d ue
carried out within one week or 300 miles
(500 km ). Have this work carried out by a
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer in order to
av oid loss of warranty claim s.
178
Service, Maintenance
Further information on maintenance and
the inspec tion system can be found in the
service booklet, which is in the glove
compartment.
Hav e serv ic e work and repa irs to the
bodyw ork and components performed
properly by a workshop. We recommend
your Vauxhall Authorised R epairer, who
has ex cellent k nowledge of Va ux ha ll
vehic les and is in possession of the
necessary tools and c urrent service
instructions from Vauxhall. To exclude the
possibility of loss of warranty, use of a
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer is
recom mended in particular during the
warranty p eriod. For further information
see the S ervice Booklet.
Separ ate anti-cor rosion servi ce
Have the work performed by a workshop at

Genuine Vauxhall Parts and
Accessories
We rec om mend that you use "Genuine
Vauxhall Parts and Accessories" a nd
conv ersion p arts released ex pressly for
your vehicle type. These parts ha ve
undergone spec ia l tests to establish their
reliability, safety a nd specific suitability for
Vauxhall v ehicles. Despite continuous
market monitoring, we ca nnot assess or
guarantee these attributes for other
prod uc ts, even if they hav e b een granted
approval by the releva nt authorities or in
some other form.
"Genuine Vauxhall Parts and Accessories"
and conversion parts approved by

carry out engine c om partment checks
(e.g. checking brake fluid or engine oil
level) when the ignition is switched off.
9 Warnin g
The cooling fan is controlled b y a thermoswitch a nd can therefore sta rt
unexpectedly ev en if the ig nition is
switched off. Risk of injury .
Electronic ignition system s generate very
hig h voltages. Do not touch the ignition
sy stem; high voltage can b e fatal.
Servic e, Mainten ance
179
Engine oil
Information on eng ine oils is found in the
Serv ic e Booklet.
Engine oil l ev el and consumpt ion
Every engine consum es engine oil for
technical rea sons. The engine oil
consumption cannot be assessed until a
fa irly long dista nce has been driven, and
may be above the spec ified v alue when the
vehicle is first being driven (run-in period).
Frequent driving at high revs increases
engine oil c onsumption.
Never carry out any repairs or adjustm ent
and m aintenance work on the vehic le
yourself. This especia lly applies to the
engine, chassis and safety parts. You may
unwittingly infringe the provisions of the
law a nd , by not performing the work
properly , end ang er y ourself and other
road users.
Checking and to pping up fluids
To aid id entific ation, the caps used when
topping up engine oil, coolant and w ash
fluid as well as the oil dipstick are coloured
yellow.
In vehicles w ith engine oil level check 3 , the
engine oil level is checked automatically see p age 72. 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 proper level of an
appropriate quality oil in the engine.
Engine oil level check ,
top ping up engine oil
The oil level must be checked with the
vehicle on a level surface and w ith the
eng ine (which must be at operating
temperature) switched off. Wait at least
5 minutes before chec king the level to
allow the norm al engine oil accumulation
in the engine to d rain into the oil pan.
180
Service, Maintenance
To check the engine oil level, insert wiped
oil dipstick into handle a s far as it will go.
Top eng ine oil up if the level has dropped
into the range of the top-up m ark MIN .
Top up with the same brand of engine
oil that was used during the previous oil
cha ng e, following the instruc tions in the
service book let.
The engine oil level must not exceed the
upper mark M AX on the dipstick. Excess
engine oil must be drained off or extracted.
If the engine oil level is above the MAX
mark there is a risk of damage to the
engine or the ca ta lytic converter.
To close, position the cap and screw it into
place.
The a mount filled must be between the
MIN and MA X marks – see pag e 173.
Capacities – see page 173.
Engine oil change, oi l filter chang e
Hav e oil c hanged by a workshop as
a function of service interval display.
We recommend that you use g enuine
eng ine oil filters.
Servic e, Mainten ance
9 Warning
Waste engine oil c annot be disposed of
with domestic refuse. Observ e the legal
requirements for disposal of old oil and
filters to p rotect the environm ent and
your health.
181
Diesel fuel filter
Coolant
On each engine oil change, ha ve the fuel
filter check ed for any water resid ue by
a workshop.
The gly col-based coolant provides excellent
corrosion protection for the heating and
cooling systems as well as antifreeze
protection down to ap prox. -28 °C . It
rem ains in the cooling system throughout
the y ear and need not be changed .
Illum ination of A indica tes water in the
fuel filter 3.
Have fuel filter checked at shorter interv als
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 nighttim e temperatures.
Use of certain antifreez es can lead to
eng ine damage. We therefore recommend
that you use only approved antifreez es.
9 Warnin g
Antifreeze is a danger to health; it m ust
therefore be kept in the original container
and out of the reach of children.
182
Service, Maintenance
When the engine is at op erating
temperature, coolant lev el rises. It falls
aga in when the system cools. If it falls
below the KALT/C OLD mark when the
system is cold, top up to the mark.
Top up a ntifreeze. If no antifreeze is
av ailable, top up with clean tap water.
If tap water is unavailab le, distilled water
can b e used.
After filling with tap water or d istilled
water, measure the antifreeze
concentration and ad d antifreez e if
required. H ave a workshop establish the
cause of the coolant loss.
Antifreeze and corrosion protecti on
Before the start of winter, have a w orkshop
check the a ntifreeze protection. The
antifreez e lev el must guarantee protection
to approx. -28 ° C. Insuffic ient antifreez e
will reduc e the frost protec tion level and
the c orrosion p rotection. If necessary add
antifreez e.
If coolant loss is topped up with water,
have concentration checked and add
antifreez e if necessa ry .
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 should be a little above the
KALT/COLD ma rk in the expansion tank
with a cold cooling system. The coolant
level can also be read off from the outsid e
of the ex pansion tank.
9 Warning
Allow engine to cool down before
rem ov ing coolant filler cap. Remove filler
cap carefully so that pressure can escape
slowly , otherwise there is a risk of scalding.
Too low a coolant level can cause engine
dam age.
To close, position the cap and screw it into
place.
Servic e, Mainten ance
183
Coola nt temperat ure
If the temperature ga uge enters the red
zone, check the coola nt level im med ia tely.
z Coolant level too low:
add c oolant, see notes under "Antifreez e
and corrosion protection", and " Coolant
level". H ave a workshop eliminate the
cause of the coolant loss.
z Coolant OK :
Have the cause of the raised c oolant
temperature elim ina ted. Contact a
work shop.
Brake fluid
Brake fluid lev el
9 Warning
Brake fluid is poisonous a nd corrosive.
Do not allow it to come into contact with
eyes, skin, fab ric or painted surfaces.
Direct contac t could cause injury and
dam age.
Open the cover of the brake fluid reservoir
up wards, remov ing the sealing rubber on
the front edge.
The fluid level in the reservoir must be
neither hig her than the MA X mark nor
lower tha n the MI N mark.
Use of certain brake fluids can lead to
dam age or reduced braking effect. We
therefore rec om mend that you use only
high performa nce app roved b ra ke fluid.
Absolute cleanliness is important when
topping up, since contamination in the
brak e fluid can c ause brake sy stem
ma lfunctions.
After c orrecting the brak e fluid level, have
a work shop eliminate the cause of the
brak e fluid loss.
184
Service, Maintenance
Brak e fluid chang e
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 (dep ending on
the p roportion of water).
The fluid change intervals specified in the
Service Booklet m ust therefore be
observed.
9 Warning
Have the brak e fluid changed by a
work shop. O bserve the legal
requirements for disposal of brake fluid
to protect of the environm ent and y our
health.
Windscreen wiper
Clea r vision is essential for safe driv ing.
Therefore c heck w indscreen wiper and
headlight wash/wip e system 3 regularly for
cleaning effect. We recomm end replacing
the wiper blades after a y ear at most.
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
wind ow s a re icy , since this may damage
the wiper ed ges or the w ip er system.
If the wiper bec om es frozen on to the glass,
we rec om mend that they be released with
the aid of Vauxhall De-icer Spray .
S mearing wiper blades c an be cleaned with
a soft cloth and Vauxhall Wind screen
Wash Solvent.
Wiper blades whose lips have become
hardened, crack ed or covered with silicone
must be replac ed. This may be necessary
as a result of the effects of ic e, thawing salt
