In brief
Vauxhall Full-size airbag system
The Vauxhall Full-size airbag system
comprises several individual systems.
Front airbag system 3
The front airbag system will be triggered in
the event of a serious accident 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 and head
thereby substantially reduced.
Side airbag system 3
The side airbag system triggers when a
side-on collision occurs and provides a
safety barrier for the driver and/or
passenger in the respective front door
area. This reduces the risk of injury to the
upper body considerably in the event of a
side-impact.
6 Further information – see page 82.
23
Active head restraints 3
In the event of a rear-end impact, the
active head restraints automatically tilt
forward a little. The head is more
effectively supported by the head restraint
and the danger of injuries caused by
whiplash in the neck area is reduced.
Active head restraints are identified by the
lettering ACTIVE on the head restraint
guide bushes.

Mobile telephones and radio
equipment (CB) 3
The Vauxhall installation instructions and
the operating guidelines provided by the
telephone manufacturer must be observed
when fitting and operating a mobile
telephone. Failure to do so could invalidate
the vehicle’s operating permit (EU Directive
95/54/EG).
Prerequisites for fault-free operation:
z Professionally installed exterior antenna
to obtain the maximum range possible,
z Maximum transmission power 10 Watt,
z Installation of the telephone in a suitable
spot (see information on page 87).
Obtain advice on predetermined
installation locations for the external
antenna and equipment holder and ways
of using devices with transmission power of
more than 10 Watts. We recommend that
you consult your Vauxhall Authorised
Repairer, who will have brackets and
various installation kits available as
accessories and will install them in
accordance with regulations.
43
For reasons of safety, we recommend that
you avoid using the phone whilst driving.
Even the use of the hands-free attachment
could be a distraction from the traffic
situation. Be sure to follow the laws of the
country in which you are driving.
9 Warning
When used in the vehicle interior, mobile

Fault
If the central locking system cannot be

z Frequent, repeated operation of the
radio frequency remote control outside
the reception range of the vehicle (e.g.
too far from vehicle, remote control is
then no longer recognised). Remote
control synchronisation - see page 50.
z If the central locking system is
overloaded as a result of repeated
operation at short intervals. The power
supply is cut-off for a brief period.
z Interference from higher-power radio

objects are to be stacked, the heavier
objects should be placed at the bottom.
Unsecured objects in the load

vehicle is braked heavily or driven
around a bend, the handling of the
vehicle may change.
z Do not drive with load compartment
open when transporting bulky objects,
for example, since toxic exhaust fumes

z Roof loads increase the vehicle’s
sensitivity to crosswinds and has a
negative affect on driveability due to an
raised centre of gravity.
z Do not allow the load to protrude above
the upper edge of the rear seat
backrests, or above the upper edge of
the front seat backrests if the rear seat
backrests are folded down.
z If objects are transported in the load
compartment, the split load
compartment grille 3 must always be
locked in one of the retainers and the
lever must be engaged at its bottom
position – see page 69.
z The warning triangle 3 and first-aid kit
(cushion) 3 must always be freely
accessible.
z When stowing objects in the stowage
compartment above the front seats,
secure against falling out.
z Do not place any objects in front of the
rear window or on the instrument panel.
They are reflected in the glass, obstruct
the driver’s view and will be thrown
through the vehicle, for instance in the
event of heavy braking.
z No objects must be placed in the area in
which the airbags inflate, as they could
cause injury when the airbags are
triggered.
z The load must not hinder handbrake

z The automatic seat belt locking devices
prevent the belt strap from being pulled
out and thus ensure that the vehicle
occupants are retained in their seats.
z The front seat belt buckles are pulled
downwards. As a result, the seat belts
are instantaneously tightened and the
occupants are made aware of the
deceleration of the vehicle at a very early
stage. This reduces the stress placed on
the body.
z The airbag systems are also triggered in
the event of severe accidents and form a
safety cushion for the occupants.
75
9 Warning
The airbag systems serve to supplement
the three-point seat belts and belt
tensioners. The seat belts must therefore
always be worn. Disregard of these
instructions may lead to injuries or
endanger life. Vehicle passengers must
be informed accordingly.
Thoroughly read the instructions
accompanying the child restraint system!

Safety systems
Seat belts
Testing the belts
Please check all parts of the belt system
occasionally for damage and correct
operation. Have damaged parts replaced.
In case of an accident, please replace
overstretched belts and triggered belt
tensioners. We recommend that you
consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
9 Warning
Always wear your seat belt, and that
means also in urban traffic and when you
are a rear seat passenger. It can save
your life!
Pregnant women must always wear a
seat belt – see page 79.
Do not perform any alterations on the
belts, their anchorages, the automatic
retractors or the belt buckles.
In the event of an accident, persons not
wearing seat belts endanger their fellow
occupants and themselves.
Control indicator X for the seat belt
warning device 3 – see page 24.
Seat belts are designed to be used by only
one person at a time. They are not suitable
for children under 12 years of age or
150 cm.
For children up to 12 years of age, we
recommend the Vauxhall child restraint
system - see page 89.
Make sure that belts are not damaged or
trapped by sharp-edged objects.
Picture no: 13190s.tif
Three-point seat belts
The vehicle is equipped with three-point
seat belts with automatic retractors and
locking devices, allowing freedom of body
movement although the spring-tensioned
belts always ensure a snug fit.
Information on correct seating position see pages 63, 79, 83.
The belt has a "vehicle sensitive retractor"
which is designed to lock during heavy
acceleration or deceleration in any
direction.
Safety systems
Belt tensioners
77
If the seat belts are undamaged the
operation thereof is unaffected, even if the
belt tensioners have been triggered.
The front seat belts are equipped with belt
tensioners. In the event of a head-on or
rear-end collision of a certain severity, the
buckles are pulled downwards, thereby
tightening the belts.
Important information - see page 82.

Control indicator v for belt tensioners
The functionality of the belt tensioners is
electronically monitored together with
the airbag systems. Operational readiness
is indicated by control indicator v in
the instrument panel. When the ignition
is switched on, the control indicator
illuminates for approx. 4 seconds. If it does
not illuminate, does not go off within
4 seconds, or illuminates whilst driving,
there is a fault in the belt tensioner system
or the airbag systems – see page 86. The
belt tensioner or the airbag systems may
fail to trigger in the event of an accident.
Triggered belt tensioners are indicated by
steady illumination of v.
Important
z Do not fit accessories not specifically
released for your vehicle type or store
objects in the belt tensioner operating
area (in the area of the belt tensioners)
due to the risk of injury in the event the
belt tensioners are triggered.
z Do not make any modifications to the
components of the belt tensioners, as
this will render the vehicle unroadworthy.
9 Warning
Improper handling (e.g. removal or
installation) could cause the belt
tensioners to be triggered. Risk of injury!
z The belt tensioner and airbag system
control electronics can be found in the
centre console area. In order to avoid
malfunctions, do not store magnetic
objects in this area.
z We recommend that you have the front
seats removed by a Vauxhall Authorised
Repairer in the event of actuation of the
belt tensioners.
z The belt tensioners only actuate once.
Please replace belt tensioners that have
been triggered. We recommend that you
consult your Vauxhall Authorised

Using the belts
Fitting seat belts
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
would affect the operation of the seat
belts; recommended maximum tilting
angle approx. 25°. The lap belt must be
straight and lie snugly against the body.
Tighten lap belt at frequent intervals whilst
driving by tugging diagonal part of belt.
Picture no: 11596s.tif
9 Warning
On pregnant women in particular, the lap
belt must be positioned as low as
possible across the pelvis so as not to put
too much pressure on the abdomen.
Bulky clothing prevents the belt from fitting
properly. The belt must not rest against
hard or fragile objects in the pockets of
your clothing (e.g. ballpoint pens, keys,
spectacles) because these could cause
injury. Do not place any objects (e.g.
handbags, mobile phones) between the
belt and your body.

Vauxhall Full-size airbag system
The Vauxhall Full-size airbag system
comprises several individual systems.
Picture no: 14125s.tif
Front airbag system 3
The front airbag system will be triggered in
the event of a serious accident 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 and head are
thereby substantially reduced.
Picture no: 14742s.tif
Side airbag system 3
The side airbag system triggers when
a side-on collision occurs and provides
a safety barrier for the driver and/or
passenger in the respective front door
area. This reduces the risk of injury to the
upper body considerably in case of a sideimpact.
82
Safety systems
Examples of events triggering the front
airbag system:
z Impact against a non-yielding obstacle:
the front airbags are triggered at low
vehicle speed.
z Impact against a yielding obstacle:
(such as another vehicle): the front
airbags are only triggered at a higher
vehicle speed.
Picture no: 16424s.tif
Front airbag
The front airbag system is identified by the
word AIRBAG on the steering wheel and
above the glove compartment 3.
The front airbag system comprises:
z an airbag with inflator in the steering
wheel and a second one behind the trim
panel above the glove compartment 3
z the control electronics with impact
sensor
z the airbag systems control indicator v in
the instrument panel.
Picture no: 11734s.tif
The front airbag system will be triggered:
z depending on the severity of the
accident
z depending on the type of impact
z within the range shown in the illustration
z independently of the side airbag
system 3.
Safety systems
Picture no: 11600s.tif
When triggered, the front airbags inflate in
milliseconds to form a safety cushion for
the driver and front passenger. The forward
movement of the front seat occupants is
checked, thereby substantially reducing
the risk of injury to the upper body and
head.
No impairment of view will occur, because
the airbags inflate and deflate so quickly.
Picture no: 13193s.tif
9 Warning
The front airbag system provides
optimum protection when the seat,
backrest and head restraint are properly
positioned: Adjust the driver’s seat
suitably to occupant’s height so that
when the driver is sitting upright, the
steering wheel is held in the area of its
upper spokes with the driver’s arms
slightly bent. The front passenger’s seat
should be slid back as far as possible with
the backrest upright (see page 63). Do
not place the head, body, hands or feet
on the covers of the airbag systems.
Do not place any objects in the area in
which the airbags inflate. Important
information – see page 78.
83
Picture no: 13190s.tif
9 Warning
The three-point seat belt must be
correctly fitted – see page 79.
The front airbag system will not be
triggered in the event of:
z the ignition being switched off
z minor frontal collisions
z accidents in which the vehicle overturns
z collisions involving a side or rear-impact
that is to say, if it would not be of benefit to
the occupants.
84
Safety systems
9 Warning
Seat belts must therefore always be worn.
The front airbag system serves to
supplement the three-point seat belts.
If you do not wear your seat belt you risk
being seriously injured, or even thrown
from the vehicle, in the event of an
accident.
In the event of an accident the belt helps
to keep you in the correct seating
position, so that the front airbag system
can provide you with effective protection.
Picture no: 11601s.tif
Side airbag 3
The side airbag system is identified by the
word AIRBAG on the outboard sides of the
front seat backrests.
The side airbag system comprises:
z an airbag with inflator in the back of the
driver’s and front passenger’s seat
respectively
z the control electronics
z the side-impact sensors
z the airbag systems control indicator v in
the instrument panel.
Picture no: 13195s.tif
The side airbag system will be triggered:
z depending on the severity of the
accident
z depending on the type of impact
z within the range shown in the illustration
on the centre door pillar of the driver’s or
front passenger’s side
z independently of the front airbag
system.
Safety systems
9 Warning
There must be no objects in the area in
which the airbag inflates or in the area
between the seat backs and the vehicle
body. Do not place the hands or arms on
the covers of the airbag systems.
Important information – see page 87.
The three-point seat belt must always be
correctly fitted – see page 79.
Picture no: 11602s.tif
When triggered, the side airbag inflates in
milliseconds 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 upper body
in the event of a side-on collision.
85
The side airbags will not be triggered in the
event of:
z the ignition being 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.
86

Safety systems
Important
z Accessories and other objects must not
be affixed or placed in the area in which
the airbags inflate as they could cause
injury if the airbags are triggered.
z Do not place any objects between the
airbag systems and the vehicle
occupants. Risk of injury. Do not install a
child restraint system 3 on the front
passenger’s seat. Danger to life.
9 Warning
As with any other object, child restraint
systems must not be carried on a
passenger’s lap. Danger to life.
z Use the hooks in the roof frame only to
hang up light articles of clothing or coat
hangers. Do not place any objects in the
pockets of the hanging items – risk of
injury.
z The airbag systems and belt tensioner
control electronics can be found in the
centre console area. In order to avoid
malfunctions, do not store magnetic
objects in this area.
z Do not stick anything on the steering
wheel, instrument panel or front seat
backrests in the vicinity of the airbags.
Do not cover any of these areas with
other materials.
z Use only a dry cloth or interior cleaner to
clean the steering wheel, instrument
panel and front seat backrests. Do not
use any aggressive cleaning agents.
z Only protective covers which are
approved for your Combo with side
airbag may be fitted on the front seats.
When fitting the protective covers, make
sure that the airbag units on the
outboard sides of the front seat
backrests are not covered.
z The airbag systems are triggered
independently of one another
depending on the severity of the
accident and type of impact.
z Each airbag can be triggered only once.
Once triggered, an airbag must be
replaced without delay. We recommend
that you consult your Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer.
z The speeds, directions of movement and
deformation properties of the vehicles,
and the properties of the obstacle
concerned, determine the severity of the
accident and triggering of the airbags.
The degree of damage to your vehicle
and the resulting repair costs alone are
not indicative that the criteria for
triggering of the airbags were met.
87
z Do not perform any alterations on the
components of the airbag system, as this
would render the vehicle unroadworthy.
9 Warning
The systems can be triggered abruptly
and cause injury if they are handled
improperly.
z We recommend having the steering
wheel, the instrument panel, all panelling
parts, the door seals, the handles and
the seats removed by your Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer.
z Applicable safety directives must always
be observed when disposing of the
vehicle. For this reason, disposal should
be performed by an authorised recycling
company. We recommend that you
consult your Vauxhall Authorised
Repairer.
z Anyone weighing less than 35 kg should
sit in the rear seat.

Safety systems
Use of child restraint systems 3
9 Warning
No child restraint system 3 may be
installed on front passenger’s seat.
Danger to life.
Child restraint systems must only be
installed on the seats of the rear row 3.
On model variants without rear row of
seats, no child restraint system may be
installed on the front passenger’s seat.
Mountings 3 for ISO-FIX
child restraint systems
Mountings 3 for the attachment of ISO-FIX
child restraint systems are located between
the backrest and seat cushions of the
outboard rear seats.
Closely follow the installation instructions
accompanying the ISO-FIX child restraint
system.
Only use ISO-FIX child restraint systems
that have been specifically approved for
the vehicle. We recommend that you
consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
Safety systems
Child restraint system 3
The Vauxhall child restraint system is
designed specifically for your Vauxhall and
thus provides optimum safety for your child
in the event of impact. If a different child
safety seat is used, follow the
manufacturers’ instructions for fitting and
use.
The country in which you are driving could
require the use of child restraint systems
and specific seats. Follow all local and
national regulations.
Selecting the right system
Your child should be transported facing
rearward in the vehicle as long as possible.
Change the system when the height of
the child is such that the head extends over
the top of the system and is no longer
supported at eye level. The child’s neck
area is still very weak. In the event of an
accident, they are subjected to less stress in
the semi-prone rearward position than
when upright.
9 Warning
Child restraint systems must not be
carried on a passenger’s lap. Danger to
life.
89
Note
z Children under 12 years of age or 150 cm
must only travel in an appropriate child
restraint system on the rear seats 3.
z When transporting children, use the child
restraint systems suitable for the child’s
weight.
z Be sure that child restraint systems are
properly installed - see the instructions
accompanying the child restraint
system.
z The covers of the Vauxhall child restraint
system can be wiped clean.
z Do not stick anything on the child
restraint systems and do not cover them
with any other materials.
z Only allow children to enter and exit at
the side facing away from the traffic.
z A child restraint system which has been
subjected to stress in an accident must
be replaced.

Light bezels
The inside of the light bezels may mist
briefly when subjected to adverse wet and
cold winter conditions, strong rain or after
the vehicle is washed. The misting will clear
up on its own after a brief period. This can
be facilitated by switching on the lights.
This causes glare for oncoming traffic if the
vehicle is driven in countries where traffic
drives on the opposite side of the road.
To prevent glare, have the headlights
adjusted by a workshop or mount a bezel
on each headlight. We recommend that

Pollen filter
Note
Maintenance
The pollen filter cleans the air entering from
outside and filters dust, soot, pollen and
spores from the interior air if the air
recirculation system 3 is active. The active
carbon layer 3 eliminates most odours and
harmful ambient gases from the air.
If the windscreen is misted due to damp
weather, temporarily set the system as
described under "Window demisting".
Settings - see pages 106, 109.
In order to ensure consistently good
operation of the AC compressor 3, it must
be operated for several minutes once per
month irrespective of the weather or
season. It is not possible to operate the AC
compressor when outside temperatures
are low.
Have the pollen filter replaced at the
intervals specified in the Service Booklet.
Cooling 3 functions most efficiently when
the windows are closed. If the passenger
compartment has heated up considerably
after a long period in direct sunlight, briefly
open the windows so that the hot air can
escape quickly.
When cooling 3 (air conditioning
compressor) is switched on condensation
forms, which is expelled from the underside
of the vehicle.
At least one air vent must be open while
cooling 3 (air conditioning compressor) is
on in order to prevent the evaporator from
icing up due to lack of air movement.
If a fault occurs, consult a workshop.

To prevent damage, Easytronic
disengages the "creep function" when the
temperature 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 cause of the fault remedied.
We recommend that you consult your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. The
system’s integrated self-diagnostics allows
faults to be quickly remedied.

Driving hints
Driving hints
The first 600 miles (1000 km)
Drive your vehicle at various speeds.
Do not use full throttle. Never allow the
engine to labour at low revs.
Make good use of all gears. Depress the
accelerator pedal a maximum of around
three quarters of the available pedal travel
in all gears.
Do not drive faster than three quarters of
maximum speed.
Do not brake unnecessarily hard for the
first 125 miles (200 km).
Never coast with engine not
running
Many units will not function in this situation
(e.g. brake servo unit, Electric Powerassisted Steering 3). 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
footbrake 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 with the engine switched off –
the vehicle can still be steered, but
considerably more force is required.
117
Driving in mountainous terrain or
with a caravan / trailer
The cooling fan is electrically operated. Its
cooling power is therefore independent of
the engine speed.
Since a considerable amount of heat is
generated at high engine speeds and less
at slower speeds, do not shift down when
climbing hills whilst the vehicle is still coping
with the gradient in the higher gear.
Diesel engines: On gradients of 10% or
more, do not drive faster than 20 mph
(30 km/h) in first gear or 30 mph (50 km/h)
in second gear.
Driving with a roof load
Do not exceed the permissible roof load –
see page 202. For reasons of safety,
distribute the load evenly and secure it
properly with retaining straps so that it
cannot slip. Adjust tyre pressure to the load
conditions. Do not drive faster than 75 mph
(120 km/h). Check and retighten the straps
frequently.
Switching off the engine
When you switch off, fans in the engine
compartment 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 idle for approximately two
minutes in order to prevent heat
accumulation.
118
Driving hints
Vehicles with turbocharged engine
After running at high engine speeds or high
engine loads, operate the engine briefly at
a low load or run in neutral for approx.
30 seconds before switching off in order to
protect the turbocharger.
Save energy – more miles
Please observe the running-in hints on the
previous page and the tips for saving
energy on the following pages.
Good, technically correct and economical
driving ensures maximum durability and
performance for your vehicle.
Overrun
The fuel supply is automatically 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 accelerate during
overrun and, if in manual transmission
mode, do not depress clutch pedal. To
prevent damage to the catalytic converter,
overrun cut-off is temporarily deactivated
when the catalytic converter temperature
is high.
Vehicles with turbocharged engine
Flow-generated noises may be audible if
the accelerator is released quickly on
account of airflow in the turbocharger.
Engine speed
Drive in a low engine speed range for each
gear as much as possible.
Warming up
Allow the engine to warm up whilst driving.
Do not warm it up by letting it run at idling
speed. Do not apply full throttle until the
engine has reached operating
temperature.
Following a cold start, the Easytronic 3
does not shift into the higher gears until a
fairly high engine speed has been reached.
This ensures that the catalytic converter
quickly attains the temperature required
for optimum pollutant reduction.
Correct gear selection
Do not race your engine whilst in neutral or
with a low gear selected. Driving too fast in
individual gears as well as stop-and-go
traffic increases engine wear and fuel
consumption.
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 climbing.
Clutch operation
Always depress the clutch pedal hard to
the floor to prevent shifting difficulties and
transmission damage.
When driving do not use the pedal as a
footrest; this will cause substantial clutch
wear.
Cooling fan
The cooling fan is controlled via a
thermoswitch and therefore only runs if
necessary.
Vehicles with diesel particle filter 3:
the cooling fan switches on automatically
while the diesel particle filter is cleaned.
Pedals
Do not place any objects in the footwell
which could slip under the pedals and
inhibit the pedal travel.
To ensure the pedal travel is uninhibited,
there must be no mats in the area of the
pedals.
Battery care
When driving slowly or when the vehicle is
stationary, e.g. in slow urban traffic, stopand-go traffic or traffic jams, turn off all
unnecessary electrical loads where
possible (e.g. heated rear window 3,
heated front seats, etc.).
Depress clutch pedal when starting in order
to relieve the strain on the starter and the
battery.

Energy and environmentconscious driving
Trend-setting technology
When developing and manufacturing your
vehicle, Vauxhall used environmentfriendly and in the main recyclable
materials. The production methods used to
make your vehicle are likewise
environmentally-compatible.
Recycling of production wastes keeps the
circulation of material closed. Reduction of
energy and water requirements also helps
to conserve natural resources.
A highly advanced design means that your
vehicle can be easily disassembled at the
end of its working life, and the individual
materials separated for subsequent re-use.
Materials such as asbestos and cadmium
are not used. The refrigerant in the air
conditioning system 3 is CFC-free.
z High noise levels and exhaust emissions
are often a result of driving without due
attention to saving energy and
protecting the environment.
z You should therefore drive with energy in
mind – "more miles with less fuel".
Reduce the noise level and exhaust
emissions by adopting an environmentconscious driving style. This is extremely
worthwhile and improves the quality of
life.
Fuel consumption depends to a great
extent on your own personal driving
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.
Check your vehicle’s fuel consumption
every time you refuel. This facilitates
early detection of any irregularities
causing increased fuel consumption.
119
Warming up
z Full throttle and warming up at idle
speed increase wear, fuel consumption,
exhaust emission, the amount of
pollutant in the exhaust and the amount
of noise.
z Drive off immediately after starting.
Warm up the engine by running it at
moderate engine speeds.
Uniform speed
z Hectic driving significantly increases fuel
consumption, the exhaust 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
traffic and in queues of traffic by means
of clever planning. Select roads with
good traffic flow.
Idling
z The engine also consumes fuel when
idling.
z If you have to wait for more than one
minute, it is worthwhile switching off
the engine. Five minutes of idling
corresponds to approximately 0.6 miles
(1 km) of driving.
120
Saving fuel, protecting the environment
Overrun
z The fuel supply is automatically shut off
during overrun, 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 save fuel, do not
accelerate or depress clutch pedal
during overrun.
Correct gear selection
z High revs increase engine wear and fuel
consumption.
z Do not race your engine. Avoid driving at
high engine speeds.
Making use of the tachometer helps to
save fuel. Drive in a low engine speed
range for each gear as much as possible
with uniform engine speeds. Drive as
often as possible in top gear, select the
next higher gear as soon as possible,
and only change down when the engine
is no longer running perfectly smoothly.
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 emissions.
z Slightly releasing the accelerator pedal
results in distinct fuel savings with no
major loss of speed.
Drive at no more than around three
quarters of maximum speed and you will
use up to 50% less fuel, without losing a
great deal of time.
Tyre pressure
z Inadequate tyre pressure, leading to
higher road resistance, costs money in
two ways: for more fuel and increased
tyre wear.
z Regular checks (every 14 days) pay off.
Electrical loads
z The power consumption of electrical
equipment increases fuel consumption.
z Switch off all auxiliary electrical loads
(e.g. air conditioning 3, heated rear
window 3) when not needed.
Roof racks
z Due to air resistance, a roof load
can increase fuel consumption by
approx. 3.5 gal./1000 miles (1 l/100 km).
z Remove them if they are not being used.
Repair and maintenance
z Improper repairs or adjustment and
maintenance work can increase fuel
consumption. Do not carry out work on
the engine yourself.
You may out of ignorance infringe
environmental laws by not disposing of
materials properly.
Appropriate parts might not be recycled.
Contact with some of the materials
involved may pose a health hazard.
z We recommend that repair and
maintenance be entrusted to your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
Extreme driving conditions
z Going up steep slopes, cornering, driving
on poor roads and winter driving all
increase fuel consumption.
Fuel consumption increases dramatically
in urban traffic and at winter
temperatures, especially on short trips
when the engine operating temperature
is not reached.
z Follow the hints given above to keep
consumption to a minimum under such
conditions.
Fuel consumption, fuel, refuelling
Fuel consumption,
fuel, refuelling
Fuel consumption
Fuel for petrol engines
Fuel consumption is determined under
specific driving conditions – see page 200.
Commercially available high-quality fuel
with a maximum ethanol content of 5% as
per DIN EN 228 (catalytic converter see page 124, octane numbers see page 198).
Special equipment increases the weight of
the vehicle. As a result, they can increase
fuel consumption and reduce the specified

There is increased friction between engine
and transmission parts during the first
600 miles (1000 kilometres). This increases
fuel consumption.

Fuel quality has a decisive influence on
power output, running behaviour and
service life of the engine. The additives
contained in the fuel play an important role
in this regard. You should therefore only
use high-quality fuels containing additives.
Fuels with ethanol content greater than 5%
do not comply with DIN EN 228 and must
not be used unless the vehicle has been
specifically developed and approved for
use of such.
Fuel with too low an octane number can
cause pinking. Vauxhall cannot be held
liable for resulting damage.
Petrol with a higher octane number can
always be used.
Pump nozzles for leaded fuel cannot be
inserted into the filler neck of vehicles that
operate on unleaded fuel.
The ignition timing is automatically
adjusted according to the grade of fuel
used (octane number) – see page 198.
Use of petrol with an octane rating of 95
will ensure economical driving.

Fuel consumption, fuel, refuelling
Fuel for diesel engines
Refuelling
Diesel engines must be operated only on
commercially available diesel fuel meeting
the specifications of DIN EN 590.
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-Oil Methyl Ester). This is in
accordance with the current 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 and do
not influence the vehicle’s driveability.
Important: Diesel fuel mixed with 5% FAME
according to DIN EN 590 must not be
confused with 100% Bio Diesel, which is not
to be used in Vauxhall engines.
The flow and filterability of diesel fuel are
temperature-dependent.
Diesel fuels with improved low temperature
properties are therefore available on the
market during the winter months. Make
sure that you fill the tank with winter fuel
before the start of the cold weather
season.
Additives can be used with diesel fuels with
winter properties that are guaranteed by
the manufacturer and when using diesel
fuel filters that are heated depending on
the outside temperature.
Do not mix diesel fuel with fuel for petrol
engines.
9 Warning
Care must be taken when handling fuel.
Before refuelling, switch off the engine
and any external heaters with
combustion chambers (identified by a
sticker on the tank flap). Switch off
mobile phones.
Picture no: 15829t.tif
Fuel filler cap
If replacing the fuel filler cap, be sure to use
a genuine Vauxhall fuel filler cap for your
model to ensure full functionality. Dieselengined vehicles have special fuel filler
caps.
Fuel is flammable and explosive.
Therefore, avoid naked flames and
sparks when handling or in the vicinity of
fuel. Do not smoke! This also applies in
places where fuel can only be detected
by its characteristic smell. If you can smell
fuel in the vehicle, have the cause thereof
remedied immediately. We recommend
that you consult your Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer.
Fuel consumption, fuel, refuelling
Correct filling depends to a large extent on
proper operation of the fuel dispensing
pump:
1. Fully insert the pump nozzle and switch
it on.
2. After the automatic cut-off, the nominal
capacity of the fuel tank can be
obtained by topping up with two doses
of fuel. Make sure the nozzle is fully
inserted.
Picture no: 11628s.tif
To close, place fuel filler cap in position and
turn, overcoming the resistance until the
ratchet on the cap engages audibly. Lock
the fuel filler cap with the ignition key 3.
Fuel filler neck at right rear side of vehicle.
Close fuel tank cover.
With a central locking system 3, the tank
flap is unlocked together with the doors 3 see page 51.
Wipe off any overflowing fuel immediately.
Open the tank flap. To prevent damage,
the right-hand sliding door cannot be fully
opened if the tank flap is open.
Unlock the fuel filler cap with the ignition
key 3, unscrew and suspend from tank
flap.
The fuel tank has a limiting system which
prevents overfilling of the tank.

Catalytic converter for petrol
engines
Leaded fuel will damage the catalytic
converter and parts of the electronic
system, rendering them inoperative.
Use of high-quality fuels other than those
specified on page 121 (e.g. LRP1)) could
damage the catalytic converter.
On vehicles with a catalytic converter, the
fuel tank filler neck is of a narrow design so
that a dispensing pump for leaded fuel
cannot be inserted.
Damage to the catalytic converter or the
vehicle may result if the following points
are not observed:
1)
LRP = Lead Replacement Petrol.
You should therefore avoid
unnecessarily long use of the starter
when starting-off, running the tank dry
(an irregular fuel supply will lead to
overheating) and starting the engine by
pushing or towing.
z If the exhaust emission control
indicator Z flashes, slow down until the
flashing stops and the control indicator
is steady. Contact a workshop
immediately. We recommend your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Picture no: 18087s.tif
Controlling exhaust emissions
Through design-related measures – mainly
in the area of the fuel-injection and ignition
systems – the proportion of noxious
materials in the exhaust, such as carbon
monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC) and
nitrogen oxides (NOx), is reduced to a
minimum.
Picture no: 11717s.tif
Control indicator Z for exhaust
emissions
Illuminates when the ignition is switched on
and during the start attempt. Goes off
shortly after the engine starts running.
If it illuminates while the engine running
there is a fault in the emission control
system. The permitted emission values
may be exceeded. Consult a workshop
immediately. We recommend your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
126
Catalytic converter, exhaust gases
Flashing with the engine running indicates
a fault that may damage the catalytic
converter. You can continue to drive
without causing damage by slowing down
until the flashing stops and the control
indicator Z is steady. Consult a workshop
immediately. We recommend your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
If it illuminates briefly, but does not recur, it
is of no significance.
Illumination of A can also indicate water
in the diesel fuel filter 3. Have the diesel
fuel filter checked for water - see page 184.
We recommend that you consult your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
If it flashes after the ignition is switched on,
there is a fault in the immobiliser system;
the engine cannot be started see page 45.
Picture no: 11718s.tif
Control indicator A for engine
electronics
Illuminates for a few seconds when ignition
is switched on.
If it comes on when the engine is running,
there is a fault in the engine or transmission
electronics. The electronics switch to the
emergency running programme, fuel
consumption may increase and the
driveability of the vehicle may be affected.
In some cases, the fault can be eliminated
by switching the engine off and back on
again. If control indicator A illuminates
again when the engine is running, consult a
workshop to have the cause of the fault
remedied. We recommend your Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer.
Catalytic converter, exhaust gases
Exhaust gases
9 Warning
Engine exhaust gases contain poisonous
carbon monoxide, which is colourless and
odourless and could be fatal if inhaled.
If exhaust fumes penetrate the vehicle
interior, open the windows and consult a
workshop immediately. We recommend
your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
During the first drive smoke may develop
because of wax and oil evaporating on the
exhaust system. Park the vehicle in the
open for a while after the first drive and
avoid inhaling the fumes.
Diesel particle filter 3
The diesel particle filter system includes a
self-cleaning function in specific intervals.
The filter is cleaned through the
combustion of soot particles. Some noise
and smoke is normal during this procedure.
The heated rear window 3 is automatically
deactivated during self-cleaning 3.
Maintenance
Have all maintenance work carried out
at the intervals specified by Vauxhall. We
recommend that you entrust this work
to your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, who
has proper equipment and trained
personnel available. Electronic testing
systems permit rapid diagnosis and
remedy of faults. This way you can be
certain that all components of the vehicle’s
electrical, injection and ignition systems
operate correctly, that your vehicle has a
low level of pollutant emission and that the
catalytic converter system will have a long
service life.
127
You are thereby making an important
contribution towards keeping the air clean
and compliance with emissions legislation.
Checking and adjustment of the fuelinjection and ignition systems is part of the
scope of a Service. For this reason you
should have all maintenance work carried
out at the intervals specified in your Service
Booklet.

Brakes
Brake system
The effectiveness of the brakes is an
important factor for traffic safety.
To improve effectiveness, do not brake
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 Booklet is therefore
of the utmost importance for traffic safety.
Brake system........................................ 128
Anti-lock Brake System (ABS u) 3.... 131
Have worn brake pads replaced.
We recommend that you consult your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, who will fit
pads that have been tested and approved
by Vauxhall and guarantee optimum
braking power.
Brake pads worn to their minimum
thickness generate a grinding noise.
Continued driving is possible. Have the
brake pads replaced as soon as possible
by a workshop. We recommend your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
Brakes
Footbrake
The footbrake comprises two independent
brake circuits.
If a brake circuit fails, the vehicle can still be
braked using the other brake circuit. If this
occurs, however, the brake pedal must be
depressed quite far using considerable
force before braking effect occurs.
The distance required for braking will be
greater. Consult a workshop before
continuing your journey. We recommend
your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
Picture no: 11629s.tif
Brake assist
When the footbrake is quickly and
forcefully depressed, the vehicle is
automatically braked with maximum brake
force amplification in order to obtain the
shortest possible braking distance during
full-on braking (brake assist).
Maintain steady pressure on the brake
pedal for as long as full-on braking is to
continue. When the brake pedal is
released, the maximum brake force
amplification is taken away.
To ensure the full pedal travel can be
utilized, especially in case of a fault in one
of the brake circuits, there must be no mats
in the vicinity of the pedals.
When the engine is not running, the
assistance of the brake servo unit
disappears once the brake pedal has been
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 brake lights before starting out
on a journey.
129
Shortly after starting each journey the
effectiveness of the brake system should
be tested at low speed and without
inconveniencing other traffic, especially if
the brakes are wet, e.g. after the vehicle
has been washed.
The brake fluid level should be checked
regularly. If the brake fluid level is too low
and the handbrake is not applied, control
indicator R on the instrument panel
illuminates - see page 26.
130
Brakes
9 Warning
If the control indicator R illuminates
when the handbrake is not applied: stop.
Interrupt your journey immediately.
Consult a workshop. We recommend your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
Picture no: 12481s.tif
Handbrake
Always apply handbrake firmly. On slopes
apply the handbrake as firmly as possible.
The mechanical handbrake acts on the
brakes on the rear wheels. It engages
automatically when applied.
To release the handbrake pull the lever up
slightly, press the ratchet knob, and fully
lower the lever.
In order to reduce the handbrake
operational forces, depress the footbrake
at the same time.
Picture no: 12482s.tif
Brake system control indicator R
The control indicator illuminates when the
ignition is switched on if the handbrake is
applied or if the brake or clutch fluid level is
too low. Brake fluid - see page 186.
Brakes
Anti-lock Brake System (ABS u) 3
The ABS continually monitors the brake
system and prevents the wheels from
locking, regardless of the road conditions
and tyre grip.
It starts to regulate the braking pressure as
soon as a wheel shows a tendency to lock.
The vehicle remains steerable, even in the
event of very heavy braking, for instance
on bends or when swerving to avoid an
obstacle. Even in the case of full-on
braking, the ABS makes it possible to drive
round an obstacle without releasing the
brakes.
ABS control is made apparent through a
pulse in the brake pedal and the noise of
the regulation process.
9 Warning
For optimum braking, keep the brake
pedal fully depressed throughout the
braking process, despite the fact that the
pedal is pulsating. Do not reduce the
pressure on the pedal.
Do not let this special safety feature
tempt you into taking risks when driving.
Traffic safety can only be achieved by
adopting a responsible driving style.
131
9 Warning
If there is a fault in ABS, the wheels may
be subject to locking due to braking that
is heavier than normal. The advantages
of ABS are no longer operational.
You can continue driving, provided you
drive with care and anticipation.
Picture no: 12147s.tif
Control indicator u for ABS
The control indicator illuminates for several
seconds when the ignition is switched on
and the system undergoes a self-check at
the same time (may be audible). The
system is ready for operation when the
control indicator goes out.
If the control indicator does not go out
after a few seconds, or if it illuminates
whilst driving, there is a fault in the ABS.
The brake system remains operational
without ABS regulation.
Have the cause of the fault remedied. We
recommend that you consult your Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer. The system’s
integrated self-diagnostics allows faults to
be quickly remedied.

If tyres of a different size than those fitted
at the factory are used, the electronic
speedometer may require reprogramming
to ensure that the correct speed is
displayed.
9 Warning
Use of unsuitable tyres or wheels may
lead to accidents and render the vehicle
unroadworthy.
Fitting new tyres
Fit tyres in pairs or in sets, which is even
better. Ensure that tyres on one axle are:
z the same size
z the same design
z the same make
z and have the same tread pattern.
Fit directional tyres such that they roll in the
direction of travel. 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 tyre) should be
refitted as soon as possible. This is the only
way to benefit fully from the design
properties of the tyre.
9 Warning
We recommend that you have your tyres
changed by your Vauxhall Authorised
Repairer, who will be familiar with the
requirements of the law as regards
disposal of tyres and can thus help to
protect the environment and your health.
Wheels, tyres
133
Some brands of tyres have a beaded edge
for alloy wheels to protect against
damage. If a wheel trim is used on steel
wheels with beaded-edge tyres, comply
with the following:
z The use of wheel trims and tyres that
Vauxhall has approved for the vehicle
and therefore fulfil all requirements for
the relevant combination of wheels and
tyres.
z If the wheel trims and tyres used are not
Vauxhall-approved, the tyres must not
have a beaded edge.
9 Warning
Use of unsuitable tyres or wheel trims
could lead to sudden loss of air and
thereby accidents.
Tyre pressure
Check tyre pressure, including the spare
wheel, at least every 14 days and prior to
any long journey; the tyres should be
checked when cold. Don’t forget to check
the spare 3.
Picture no: 12117s.tif
Picture no: 9358t.tif
Use the valve cap key to make unscrewing
the valve caps easier. The key is located on
the inside of the tank flap.
Incorrect inflation pressures will impair
safety, vehicle handling, comfort and fuel
economy and will increase tyre wear.
Tyre pressures – see pages 205, 206.
Pressure that is too low can result in
considerable tyre warm-up and internal
damage, leading to tread separation and
even to tyre blow-out at high speeds.
Do not reduce tyre pressure when the tyres
are warm. Otherwise the pressure may
drop below the permissible minimum when
the tyres cool down.
After having checked the tyre pressure,
tighten the valve caps using the valve cap
key.
Hidden tyre damage is not eliminated by
adjusting the tyre pressure.
9 Warning
Incorrect tyre pressure could lead to a flat
tyre.

General information
z The danger of aquaplaning is greater if
the tyres are worn.
z Tyres age, even if they are used only very
little or not at all. A spare wheel which

z Never fit used tyres the previous history
and use of which you do not know.
z So as not to impair brake cooling, use
only wheel trims approved for use on
your vehicle.
Picture no: 6457u.tif
The legally permissible minimum tread
depth (1.6 mm) has been reached when
the tread has worn down as far as one of

temperatures below 7 °C and should
therefore be fitted on all the wheels.
Wheel trims 3
If the wheel trims and tyres used are not
Vauxhall-approved, make sure that the
tyres do not have a beaded edge see page 133.
The design of summer tyres means they
have limited qualities for winter driving.
If the maximum permissible speed for the
winter tyres is less than that of the vehicle,
a notice indicating the maximum
permissible speed for the tyres must be
affixed within the driver’s field of vision1).
Use of a spare wheel fitted with a summer
tyre may affect the vehicle’s driveability,
especially on slippery road surfaces.
Obtain a replacement for the faulty tyre as
soon as possible, and have the wheel
balanced and fitted to the vehicle.
Picture no: 6459u.tif
Tyre chains 3
See page 205 for restrictions.
Tyre chains are only permitted on the front
wheels. They must be fitted to the tyres
symmetrically in order to achieve a
concentric fit.
Always use fine mesh chains that add no
more than 10 mm to the tyre tread and the
inboard sides (including chain lock).
We recommend that you consult your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
1)
Varies from country to country on account of
national regulations.
Wheels, tyres
Wheel trim on steel wheels could come into

Tyre chains may only be used at speeds up
to 30 mph (50 km/h) and, when travelling
on roads that are free of snow, they may be
used for brief periods only since they are
subject to rapid wear on a hard road and
may snap.
Temporary spare wheel 3
Tyre chains must not be used on the
temporary spare wheel. If you need to use
tyre chains after suffering a flat front tyre,
fit the temporary spare on the rear axle
and transfer one of the rear wheels to the
front axle.

Roof racks, caravan and trailer towing
Caravan and trailer loads1)
The permissible caravan / trailer loads are
vehicle-dependent and engine-dependent
maximum values which must not be
exceeded. The actual caravan / trailer load
is the difference between the actual gross
weight of the caravan / trailer and the
actual coupling socket load with the
caravan / trailer coupled. When the
caravan / trailer load is being checked,
therefore, only the caravan / trailer wheels
– and not the jockey wheel – must be
standing on the weighing apparatus.
The permissible caravan / trailer loads for
your vehicle are given in the vehicle
documents. Unless otherwise stated, they
are valid for gradients up to max. 12%.
1)
Observe national regulations.
The permissible caravan / trailer load
should be fully utilised only by drivers who
are adequately experienced in towing
large or heavy caravans / trailers.
The permitted caravan / trailer load
applies up to the specified incline and up to
an altitude of 1000 metres above sea-level.
Since engine power decreases as altitude
increases because of the air becoming
thinner, therefore reducing climbing ability,
the permitted towing weight also decreases
by 10 % for every 1000 metres of additional
altitude. The towing weight does not have
to be reduced when driving on roads with
slight inclines (less than 8%, e. g.
motorways).
The actual caravan / trailer load plus the
actual Gross Vehicle Weight of the towing
vehicle must not exceed the maximum
permitted towing weight. For example, if
the permitted Gross Vehicle Weight is
utilised, the caravan / trailer load must only
be used until the maximum permitted
towing weight is reached. The maximum
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 caravan / trailer on the
coupling ball. It can be varied by changing
the weight distribution when loading the
caravan / trailer.
The maximum permissible coupling socket
load (50 kg) is specified on the towing
equipment identification plate and in the
vehicle documents. Always aim for the
maximum load, especially in the case of
heavy caravans / trailers. The coupling
socket load should never fall below 25 kg.
When measuring the coupling socket load,
make sure that the drawbar of the loaded
caravan / trailer is at the same height as it
will be when the caravan / trailer is coupled
with the towing vehicle loaded. Particularly
important for caravans / trailers with
tandem axle.
Rear axle load during towing
The permissible axle loads must not be
exceeded.
140
Roof racks, caravan and trailer towing
Handling is greatly influenced by the
loading of the caravan / trailer. Loads
should therefore be secured so that they
cannot slip and be placed in the centre of
the caravan / trailer if possible, i.e. above
the axle.
In the case of trailers with low driving
stability, do not exceed a speed of 50 mph
(80 km/h); the use of a friction-type
stabiliser is highly recommended.
Do not drive faster than 50 mph (80 km/h)
if possible, even in countries where higher
speeds are permitted.
Picture no: 9358t.tif
Tyre pressure
Increase tyre pressure on the towing
vehicle to the value specified for a full load
(see pages 205, 206). Also check the
inflation pressure of the spare wheel and
the caravan / trailer wheels.
Picture no: 13228s.tif
Driving characteristics, towing
tips
For caravans / trailers with brake, attach
the break-away stopping cable to the eye
(see arrow in figure).
Before attaching the caravan / trailer,
lubricate the ball of the towing device.
However, do not lubricate the ball if a
stabiliser, which acts on the coupling ball, is
being used to damp snaking.
Check caravan / trailer lighting before
starting to drive. The fog tail light on the
vehicle is deactivated when towing a
caravan or trailer.
Caravans / trailers with LED turn signals
require a provision that make bulb
replacement as with standard bulbs
possible.
Turn signal control indicator O see page 25.
Roof racks, caravan and trailer towing
Make sure that you have enough room
when cornering and avoid sudden
manoeuvres.
If the caravan / trailer starts to sway, drive
more slowly, do not attempt to correct the
steering and brake sharply if necessary.
If full-on braking is required, depress the
brake pedal as hard as possible.
Remember that the braking distance for
vehicles towing caravans / trailers with and
without brake is always greater than that
for vehicles not towing a caravan / trailer.
When driving downhill, towing a caravan /
trailer subjects the brakes to a heavier load
than normal. For this reason, select the
same gear as when driving uphill and drive
at a similar speed.
Easytronic 3 in Automatic mode will
automatically select the driving
programme with optimum engine braking
effect.

The cooling fan is electrically operated. Its
cooling power is therefore independent of
the engine speed.
Since a considerable amount of heat is
generated at high engine speeds and less
at slower speeds, do not shift down when
climbing hills whilst the vehicle is still coping
with the gradient in the higher gear.
Diesel engine: on gradients of 10% or more,
do not drive faster than 20 mph (30 km/h)
in first gear or 30 mph (50 km/h) in second
gear.

Starting on inclines
For vehicles with manual transmission, the
most favourable engine speed when
starting-off on an incline is between 2500
and 3000 rpm for petrol engines and
between 2000 and 2500 rpm for diesel
engines. Hold engine speed constant,
engage clutch gradually (let slip), release
handbrake and open throttle. If possible,
the engine speed should not drop during
this procedure.
For vehicles with Easytronic 3, it is
sufficient to apply full throttle when in
Automatic mode.
Before starting-off under extreme
conditions (high combination weight,
mountainous terrain with steep inclines),
switch off all unnecessary electrical loads
such as heated rear window 3,
air conditioning system 3 and heated front
seats 3.

General information
Depending on the model variant, the spare
wheel may be designed for use as a
temporary spare 3. The temporary spare is
designated by a sticker on the rim. Follow
the instructions on this page and
pages 137, 205.
Notes on temporary spare wheel 3
z Using a temporary spare wheel may
change the driving behaviour of the
vehicle, particularly if using winter
tyres 3. Replace defective tyre as quickly
as possible, balance wheel and fit to
vehicle.
Information on directional tyres 3
Directional tyres perform optimally when
they are mounted in their prescribed
direction of rotation. If after a flat tyre, the
tyre or spare wheel is mounted against its
prescribed direction of rotation, bear in
mind the following:
On vehicles with alloy wheels 3 the spare
wheel may have a steel rim.
z Fit only one temporary spare wheel.
z Vehicle handling may be altered. Have
the defective tyre replaced as soon as
possible and have the wheel balanced
and mounted on the vehicle.
If you use winter tyres 3, the spare wheel
may still be fitted with a summer tyre. If you
use the spare wheel the vehicle’s handling
may be altered. Obtain a replacement for
the faulty tyre as soon as possible, and
have the wheel balanced and fitted to the
vehicle.
The spare wheel may have a smaller tyre
and a smaller rim than the wheels mounted
on the vehicle1): using the spare wheel may
alter the driving behaviour of the vehicle.
Have the defective tyre replaced as soon
as possible and have the wheel balanced
and mounted on the vehicle.
z Do not drive faster than 50 mph
(80 km/h).
z Take curves slowly.
z Do not use the temporary spare wheel
for a lengthy period.
z Replace temporary spare wheel with full
specification wheel without delay.
z Do not use tyre chains. If tyre chains
must be used when one of the front tyres
has a flat, mount the temporary spare
wheel on the rear axle and transfer one
of the rear wheels to the front axle.
Check the tyre pressure and correct if
necessary - see pages 205, 206.
z Note the information on the temporary
spare wheel on pages 205, 137.

Changing wheels
Some model variants have a tyre repair kit
instead of a spare wheel – see page 157.
To ensure your safety, make the following
preparations and observe the following
information when changing wheels:
z Park the vehicle on a level, firm and
non-slippery surface.
z Switch on the hazard warning lights,
apply the handbrake, engage first gear
or reverse.
z Correctly set up the warning triangle.
Warning triangle – see page 148.
z Remove the spare wheel from beneath
the floor.
z Before raising the vehicle, set the front
wheels to the straight-ahead position.
z Before raising the vehicle, slacken the
wheel bolts half a turn. Do not unscrew
the bolts at this time.
z Never change more than one wheel at a
time.
z Block the wheel diagonally opposite the
wheel to be changed by placing wedge
blocks or equivalent in front and behind
the wheel.
z Use the jack only to change wheels.
z If the ground on which the vehicle is
standing is soft, a solid board (max. 1 cm
thick) should be placed under the jack.
Using a thicker board could damage the
jack and the vehicle.
z Upon a wheel change, the taper of each
wheel bolt must be lightly greased
before the bolt is tightened. Use
commercially available lubricating
grease for this purpose. We recommend
that you consult your Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer.
z No people or animals may be in the

Bulb replacement
Before replacing a bulb, switch ignition off
and switch relevant switch off.
Only hold new bulb at base! Do not touch
the bulb glass with bare hands, otherwise
fingerprints on the glass evaporate.
Residue builds up on the reflector
eventually resulting in a dull reflector.
Inadvertently stained bulbs may be
cleaned with a clean non-fluffy cloth, using
alcohol or white spirits.
The replacement bulb must be in
accordance with the data on the base of
the defective bulb. Do not exceed wattage
given on bulb base.

Service Plan
In order to guarantee economical and safe
vehicle operation and to maintain the
value of your vehicle, it is of vital
importance that all maintenance work is
carried out at the proper intervals as
specified by Vauxhall.
On vehicles with fixed oil change and
service interval, InSP appears in the trip
odometer display after the ignition is
switched on when it is time for servicing:
Have service work carried out within one
week or 300 miles (500 km). We
recommend that you consult your Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer.

The service interval display takes account
of off-the-road periods during which the
battery is disconnected.
For vehicles with flexible oil change and
service interval, the interval is determined
by several parameters stemming from how
the vehicle is used. For this purpose,
various engine-specific data is continually
recorded in order to calculate the
remaining distance before the next service.
Picture no: 14419s.tif
The remaining distance can be shown on
the trip odometer display when the ignition
is off: Press the reset button for the trip
odometer for 2 seconds. InSP and the
remaining distance are then displayed.
If the remaining distance is less than
1000 miles (1500 km), InSP is displayed
with a remaining distance of 600 miles
(1000 km) after the ignition is switched on
and off.
InSP is displayed for several seconds if the
remaining distance is less than 600 miles
(1000 km). Have the necessary service
work carried out within one week or 300
miles (500 km). Have this work carried out
by a repairer in accordance with Vauxhall
Motors’ recommendations, using genuine
Vauxhall Parts and Accessories, in order to
avoid loss of warranty claims.
Maintenance, Service Plan
181
Further information on maintenance and
the Service Plan can be found in the Service
Booklet, which is in the glove compartment.
Have maintenance work, as well as repairs
to the bodywork and units, carried out by a
professional. We recommend your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, who is
familiar with Vauxhall vehicles and in
possession of the necessary special tools
and the latest Service Instructions from
Vauxhall. In order to avoid invalidation of
any warranty claim, it is especially
important to entrust work to a Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer during the warranty
period. For further information, see the
Service Booklet.
Separate anti-corrosion service
Have this service performed once every
two years, either as part of a Service or
separately; see Service Booklet. To avoid
invalidation of any warranty claim against
rust-through, we recommend that you
consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
Picture no: 6526u.tif
A note on safety
Always switch ignition off when performing
checks in the engine compartment
(e.g. checking the brake fluid level or the
engine oil level) due to risk of injury from
live cables and rotating parts.
9 Warning
The cooling fan is controlled by a
thermoswitch and can therefore start
unexpectedly even if the ignition is
switched off. Risk of injury.
Electronic ignition systems generate very
high voltages. Do not touch the ignition
system; high voltage can be fatal.
Picture no: 11671s.tif
Never carry out any repairs or adjustment
and maintenance work on the vehicle
yourself. This especially applies to the
engine, chassis and safety parts. You may
unwittingly infringe the provisions of the
law and, by not performing the work
properly, endanger yourself and other
road users.
Checking and topping up fluids
To aid identification, the caps used when
topping up engine oil, coolant and wash
fluid as well as the oil dipstick are coloured
yellow.
182
Maintenance, Service Plan
Picture no: 18113s.tif
Engine oil
Information on engine oils is found in the
Service Booklet.
Engine oil level and consumption
All engines consume engine oil for
technical reasons. The engine oil
consumption can only be assessed after
driving a long distance, and may be above
the specified value during the initial stage
(run-in period). Frequent driving at high
revs causes engine oil consumption to
increase.
9 Warning
Do not allow the engine oil level to drop
below the minimum level!
Picture no: 13212s.tif
Engine oil level check,
topping up engine oil
The engine oil level must be checked with
the vehicle horizontal and with the engine
(which must be at operating temperature)
switched off. Wait at least five minutes
before checking the level to allow the
normal engine oil accumulation in the
engine to drain back into the oil pan.
In vehicles with engine oil level check 3, the
engine oil level is checked automatically see page 27. It is particularly advisable to
check the engine oil level before embarking
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.
Picture no: 16495s.tif
To check the engine oil level, wipe off the
dipstick and insert it up to the stop mark on
the handle. Top up engine oil if the level
has fallen to the MIN mark.
Engine oil should never pass the upper
MAX mark on the dipstick. Excess engine
oil must be drained or suctioned out. If the
engine oil level is above the MAX mark,
there is a danger of engine or catalytic
converter damage.
The amount filled must be between the
MIN and MAX marks – see page 209.
Maintenance, Service Plan
Picture no: 18114s.tif
When topping up, use the same brand of
engine oil that was used during the
previous oil change. Observe the
information in the Service Booklet.
When closing the cap, insert it straight and
screw it in all the way.
Capacities – see page 209.
Picture no: 12125s.tif
Engine oil change, oil filter change
Change the oil at the displayed service
intervals.
We recommend that you use genuine
Vauxhall engine oil filters.
183
Picture no: 12126s.tif
9 Warning
We recommend that you entrust engine
oil and filter changes to a Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer, who will be familiar
with the requirements of the law as
regards disposal of used oil and can thus
help to protect the environment and your
health.
184
Maintenance, Service Plan
Diesel fuel filter
Coolant
Check the fuel filter for any water residue
during each engine oil change.
We recommend that you consult your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
During operation the system is pressurised.
The temperature may therefore rise briefly
to over 100 °C.
Illumination of A indicates water in the
diesel fuel filter 3.
Have diesel fuel filter checked at shorter
intervals if the vehicle is subjected to
extreme operating conditions such as high
humidity (primarily in coastal areas),
extremely high or low outside temperatures
and substantially varying daytime and
night-time temperatures.
The glycol-based coolant provides
excellent corrosion protection for the
heating and cooling systems as well as
anti-freeze protection down to approx.
–28 °C. It remains in the cooling system
throughout the year and need not be
changed.
Use of certain anti-freezes can lead to
engine damage. We therefore recommend
that you use anti-freezes that have been
approved by Vauxhall.
9 Warning
Anti-freeze is a danger to health; it must
therefore be kept in the original container
and out of the reach of children.
Picture no: 11676s.tif
Anti-freeze and corrosion protection
Before the start of the cold weather season,
have the coolant checked for correct
concentration using a calibrated
hydrometer. We recommend that you
consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
The anti-freeze content must guarantee
frost protection down to approx. –28 °C. An
insufficient concentration will reduce frost
and corrosion protection. Add anti-freeze if
necessary.
If coolant loss is topped up with water,
have concentration checked and add antifreeze if necessary.
Maintenance, Service Plan
Top up anti-freeze. If no anti-freeze is
available, top up with clean tap water.
If tap water is unavailable, distilled water
can be used.
Coolant temperature
If the temperature gauge is in the red zone,
coolant temperature is too high. Check the
coolant level immediately:
After topping up with tap or distilled water,
have the anti-freeze concentration
checked, and anti-freeze added if
necessary. Have the cause of the coolant
loss remedied. We recommend that you
consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
z Coolant level low:
Top up coolant. Pay attention to the
instructions given under "Anti-freeze 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 cap, insert it straight and
screw it in all the way.
Picture no: 13213s.tif
Coolant level
Hardly any losses occur since the cooling
system is sealed and it is thus rarely
necessary to top up the coolant.
The coolant in the compensation tank
should be slightly above the KALT/COLD
mark with the cooling system cold. It rises
when the engine is warm and falls again as
it cools. If it drops below the marking in this
case, it should be topped up to a level just
above the marking.
9 Warning
Allow engine to cool down before
removing coolant filler cap. Remove filler
cap carefully so that pressure can escape
slowly, otherwise there is a risk of
scalding.
185
z Coolant level OK:
Have the cause of increased coolant
temperature remedied. Consult a
workshop. We recommend your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Maintenance, Service Plan
Brake fluid
Windscreen wiper
Brake fluid is hygroscopic, i.e. it absorbs
water. If the brakes become hot, such as
when driving on long downhill stretches,
vapour bubbles can occur in the water,
which can have an extremely adverse
effect on braking power (depending on the
proportion of water).
Clear vision is essential for safe driving.
The fluid change intervals specified in the
Service Booklet must therefore be
observed.
9 Warning
We recommend that you have brake fluid
changed 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 windscreen wiper for
cleaning effectiveness. We recommend
that wiper blades be replaced at least once
a year.
If the windows are dirty, operate the
windscreen wash before switching the
wiper on in order to prevent wiper blade
wear.
Do not switch windscreen wiper on if
windows are icy, since this may damage
the wiper edges or the wiper system.
If the wiper becomes frozen on to the glass,
we recommend that it be released with the
aid of Vauxhall De-icer Spray before
starting the vehicle, to prevent wiper motor
damage.
Smearing wiper blades can be cleaned with
a soft cloth and Vauxhall Windscreen
Wash Solvent.
Wiper blades whose lips have become
hardened, cracked or covered with silicone
must be replaced. This may be necessary
as a result of the effects of ice, thawing salt
or heat, or the incorrect use of cleaning
agents.
Switch off the windscreen wiper in
automatic car washes - see pages 15, 192.

Protecting electronic components
In order to prevent faults in electronic
components in the electrical system, never
connect or disconnect battery with engine
running or ignition switched on. Never start
engine with battery disconnected, e.g.
when starting using jump leads.
To avoid damaging the vehicle, do not
make any modifications to the electrical
system, e.g. connecting additional
consumers or tampering with electronic
control units (chip tuning).
9 Warning
Electronic ignition systems generate very
high voltages. Do not touch the ignition
system; high voltage can be fatal.
189
Disconnecting / connecting the battery
from / to the electrical system
Disconnect the battery from the vehicle
electrical system before charging: First
detach the negative and then the positive

Vehicle care
Washing
Waxing
Polishing
The paintwork of your vehicle is exposed to
environmental influences, e.g. continuous
changes in weather conditions, industrial
waste gases and dust or thawing salts, so
wash and wax your vehicle regularly. When
using automatic car washes, select a
programme which includes waxing.
Wax your vehicle regularly, in particular
after it has been washed using shampoo
and at the latest when water no longer
forms beads on the paintwork, otherwise
the paintwork will dry out.
Polishing is necessary only if the paint has
become dull or if solid deposits have
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
damage.
When using car washes, follow the relevant
instructions of the car wash facility. The
windscreen wiper and rear window
wiper 3 must be off - see page 15.
Remove the antenna 3 and roof rack 3.
If you wash your vehicle by hand, make
sure that the insides of the wings are 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
vehicle. Rinse leather frequently. Use
separate leathers for paint and window
surfaces: remnants of wax on the windows
will impair vision.
Observe national regulations.
Also wax edges and folds on opened doors
and flaps as well as the areas they cover.
Paintwork polish with silicone forms a
protective film, making waxing
unnecessary.
Plastic body parts should not be treated
with wax and polish.
Use Metallic Paintwork Wax on vehicles
with a metallic-effect paint finish.
Wheels
Use a pH-neutral wheel cleaning agent to
clean the wheels.
Wheels are painted and can be treated
with the same agents as the body. For alloy
wheels we recommend use of Alloy Wheel
Preserver.
Vehicle care
193
Paintwork damage
Plastic and rubber parts
Interior and upholstery
Repair small areas of paint damage
such as stone impacts, scratches etc.
immediately using a Vauxhall touch-up
applicator or Vauxhall spray and touch-up
paint before rust can form. If rust has
already formed, have the cause remedied.
We recommend that you consult your
Vauxhall Partner. Please also pay
attention to surfaces and edges beneath
the vehicle where rust may have formed
unnoticed for some time.
If the carwash does not clean plastic and
rubber parts adequately, use cleaner
suitable for vehicle interiors. Do not use any
other agent, and in particular do not use
solvents or petrol.
Clean the vehicle interior, including the
instrument panel facia, using interior
cleaner.
Wheels and tyres
Clean fabric upholstery with a vacuum
cleaner and brush. To remove stains, use
cleaner that is suitable for both fabrics and
vinyl.
Exterior lights
Headlight and other protective light bezels
are made of plastic. If they require
additional cleaning after the vehicle has
been washed, clean them with Car
Shampoo. Do not use any abrasive or
caustic agents, do not use an ice scraper,
and do not clean them dry.
Do not use high-pressure jet cleaners.
The instrument panel is only to be cleaned
with a soft, damp cloth.
Do not use cleaners such as acetone,
carbon tetrachloride, paint thinner, paint
remover, nail varnish remover, washing
powder or bleach. Petrol is also unsuitable.
Open velcro fastenings in your clothing
could damage the seat cushions. Close
velcro fastenings.
Seat belts
Always keep seat belts clean and dry.
Clean only with lukewarm water or cleaner.
194
Vehicle care
Windows
Windscreen wiper blades
Locks
When cleaning the heated rear window 3,
make sure that the heating element on the
inside of the window is not damaged.
Wax, such as that used in car washes, can
cause streaks to form on the windscreen
when the wiper is used.
Use a soft lint-free cloth or chamois leather
in conjunction with Window Cleaner and
Insect Remover.
Smearing wiper blades can be cleaned with
a soft cloth and Vauxhall Windscreen
Wash Solvent, and replaced if necessary –
see page 186.
The locks are lubricated with a high-grade
lock cylinder grease at the factory.
Vauxhall lock cylinder grease prevents the
locks from freezing up. Only use de-icing
agent in emergencies, as they have a
degreasing effect and will impair the
function of the locks. After using a de-icing
agent, have the locks re-greased. We
recommend that you entrust this to your
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.
Vauxhall Windscreen Wash Solvent is
suitable for de-icing windows.
For mechanical removal of ice, use a
commercially available sharp-edged ice
scraper. Press the scraper firmly against
the glass so that no dirt can get under it
and scratch the glass.
Vehicle care
Engine compartment
Underbody
Clean painted surfaces in the engine
compartment like any other painted
surface.
Your vehicle has a factory-applied PVC
undercoating in the wheel arches
(including the longitudinal members) which
provides permanent protection and needs
no special maintenance. The surfaces of
the vehicle underbody not covered by PVC
are provided with a durable protective wax
coating in critical areas.
For best results, wash and wax the engine
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 components of the Anti-lock Brake
System 3, the automatic air conditioning
system 3 or the belt drive and its
components.
Protective wax that has been applied is
also removed during the engine wash. For
this reason, have the engine, brake system
components in the engine compartment,
axle components with steering, body parts
and cavities thoroughly preserved with
protective wax after the wash. We
recommend that you consult your Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer.
An engine wash can be performed in the
spring in order to remove dirt that has
adhered to the engine compartment,
which may also have a high salt content.
Check protective wax layer and make good
if necessary.
Do not use high-pressure jet cleaners.
On vehicles which are washed frequently in
automatic car washes with underbody
washing facility, the protective wax
coating may be impaired by dirt-dissolving
additives, so check the underbody after
washing and have it waxed if necessary.
Before the start of the cold weather season,
check the PVC coating and protective wax
coating and, if necessary, have them
restored to perfect condition.
195
Caution - commercially available bitumen /
rubber materials can damage the PVC
coating. We recommend that you have
underbody work carried out by a Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer, 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 remove any dirt adhering to the
underbody since this may also contain salt.
Check protective wax coating and, if
necessary, have it restored to perfect
condition.

Technical data
Fuel consumption,
CO2 emissions
Directive 80/1268/EEC (last changed by
1999/100/EC) has applied for the
measurement of fuel consumption since
1996.
The directive is oriented to actual driving
practices: Urban driving is rated at
approx. 1/3 and extra-urban driving with
approx. 2/3 (urban and extra-urban
consumption). Cold starts and acceleration
phases are also taken into consideration.
The specification of CO2 emission is also a
constituent of the directive.
The figures given must not be taken as a
guarantee for the actual fuel consumption
of a particular vehicle.
All values stem from the EU base model
with standard equipment.
The calculation of fuel consumption as
specified by directive 1999/100/EC takes
account of the vehicle’s kerbweight,
ascertained in accordance with the said
regulation. Optional extras may result in
slightly higher fuel consumption and CO2
emission levels than those quoted.
To convert l/100 km into mpg, divide 282
by number of litres/100 km.
Saving fuel, protecting the environment see page 119.

Technical data
Weights, payload and roof load
The payload is the difference between
the permitted Gross Vehicle Weight (see
identification plate, page 196) and the EC
kerbweight.
To calculate the kerbweight, enter the data
for your vehicle below:
z Kerbweight from
Table 1,
see pages 203 to 204
+ .............. kg
z Weight of heavy
accessories from Table 2,
see page 204
+ .............. kg
The total
= .............. kg
is the EC kerbweight.
Optional equipment and accessories
increase the kerbweight, which means that
the payload will also change slightly.
Note the weights given in the vehicle
documents and the identification plate.
The combined total of front and rear axle
loads must not exceed the permissible
Gross Vehicle Weight. For example, if
the front axle is bearing its maximum
permissible load, the rear axle can only
bear a load that is equal to the Gross
Vehicle Weight minus the front axle load.
The permissible axle loads must not be
exceeded.
See the identification plate or vehicle
documents for permissible axle loads.
Towing a caravan / trailer - see page 138.
Roof load
The permissible roof load is 100 kg - 75 kg
for the Combo with roof rails. The roof load
consists of the weight of the roof rack plus
the load carried.

Tyres
Restrictions
Not all tyres available on the market
currently meet the structural requirements.
We recommend that you consult a
Vauxhall Authorised Repairer concerning
suitable tyre makes.
These tyres have undergone special tests
to establish their reliability, safety and
specific suitability for Vauxhall vehicles.
Despite continuous market monitoring, we
are unable to assess these attributes for
other tyres, even if they have been granted
approval by the relevant authorities or in
some other form.
Further information – see page 132.
Winter tyres 3
Tyres of size 185/60 R 15, 185/65 R 15,
195/45 R 16 and 195/50 R 16 are not
permitted for use as winter tyres.
If winter tyres are in use, the spare wheel
may still be fitted with a summer tyre.
Use of the spare wheel may alter vehicle
handling. Obtain a replacement for the
faulty tyre as soon as possible, and have
the wheel balanced and fitted to the
vehicle.
Further information – see page 136.
Tyre chains 3
Tyre chains may be used on the front
wheels only.
We recommend the use of Vauxhall-tested
fine-mesh chains that add no more than
10 mm to the tyre tread and the inboard
sides (including chain lock).
Tyre chains are not permitted on the
temporary spare wheel or on tyres of size
185/60 R 15, 185/65 R 15, 195/45 R 16 and
195/50 R 16.
Tyre chains are generally permitted on
