Drivin g hints Driving hints 95 The first 600 miles (1000 km) Power steering Driv e y our v ehicle at various speed s. Do not use full throttle. Never allow the engine to labour at low rev s. N ever leav e the steering wheel on full lock when the vehicle is stationary as this m ay dam age the power steering pum p. Make good use of all gears. Depress the accelerator ped al a ma ximum of around three quarters of the available p edal travel in all gea rs and drive ra nges. If the power steering should fail - e. g. when the vehicle is being towed with the engine switched off - the vehic le can still be properly steered b ut c onsiderab ly greater effort is necessary. Do not d riv e faster than three quarters of maximum speed . The inform ation c oncerns the engine and parts of the power train, e. g. the final drive. Never coast with engine not run ning Many units will then not function (e.g. turn signal indicators, brake servo unit, p ow er steering, airba g system). Driving in this manner is a d anger to yourself a nd others. Brake servo unit With the engine not running the brake servo unit is no longer effective once the brake peda l has been depressed once or twice. The braking effect is not red uced but substantia lly grea ter foot pressure is necessary to stop the vehicle. Driving in mo untainous terrain or with caravan/trailer Electrically driven fan: The fan cooling cap acity is not dep endant on engine speed. It is not necessary, therefore, w hen driving uphill to shift down into a lower gear if the vehicle can climb in a higher gear. Driving with a roof load Do not exceed the perm issible roof load. For safety reasons, distribute the loa d evenly and secure it tightly with strap s so that it cannot slip. Set the tyre inflation pressure to the value given for full load. Do not drive faster than 75 m ph (120 km/h). C heck a nd retighten straps at frequent interva ls. 96 Drivin g hints Switching off the engine Engine rpm Clu tch operation If the engine temperature is v ery high, e.g. after driv ing in mountainous terrain: allow the engine to idle for approxim ately tw o minutes in order to prevent heat accumulation. Und er all d riv ing cond itions drive in a fa vourab le engine speed range. Alway s d epress the c lutch pedal hard to the floor to p revent shifting difficulties and transmission damage. There must be no ma ts in the area of the pedals. When you switch off, fans in the engine compartment may continue running for a time to cool the engine. Vehicles with turbocharged engine After running at hig h engine speeds or high engine loa ds, operate the engine briefly at a low load or run in neutra l for approx. 30 seconds before sw itching off in order to protect the turbocha rger. Save energy – mo re miles Please observe the running-in hints on the previous pag e and the tips for energ y saving on the following pages. Good, technica lly correct and economical driving ensures ma ximum durability and performance for your vehic le. Overrun The fuel supply is autom atically shut off during overrun, e.g. when the vehicle is being driven down long gradients or d uring braking. To enable the overrun cut-off to come into action, do not accelerate or declutch during ov errun. Warm ing up Allow the engine to warm up while driving. Do not warm it up by letting it run at idling speed. Do not apply full throttle until the engine has reached op erating temperature. When driving do not use the pedal as a foot rest; this will cause substantial clutch wear. After a cold start, Tecshift 3 do not shift into higher gears until hig her engine speeds have been reached. This allow s the catalytic converter to quickly reac h the temperature required for optimum pollutant reduction. Do not place any ob jects in the foot well which could slip under the ped als and inhibit the pedal trav el. Correct gear selection Battery c are whilst driving Do not race your engine whilst in neutral or with a low gea r selected. Driving too fast in indiv idua l gea rs or drive ranges as w ell as stop-and-go traffic increa se engine wear and fuel consum ption. 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. Pedals To ensure the pedal travel is uninhibited, there must be no mats in the area of the pedals. When driving slowly or when the v ehicle is stationary , e.g. in slow urban traffic, stopand-go traffic or traffic jams, turn off all unnecessary electrical load s w here possible (heated rear window, aux iliary hea dlights etc.). When starting the eng ine, depress the clutch pedal so that transmission resistance is elimina ted a nd the starter motor and battery are relieved.

End-o f-life vehic le reco very For detailed information on Va ux ha ll’ s ongoing com mitment to ac hieving an environmentally susta inab le future, including; design for recycling, take back of End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs) and the recycling of ELVs view www.va ux ha ll. co.uk/recycling for details. Trend-setting technology When dev eloping and manufac turing your vehic le, Vauxhall used environmentfriendly and in the m ain recyc la ble materials. The production methods used to mak e y our v ehicle are likewise env ironmenta lly -compatible. Recycling of production wastes keeps the circulation of material closed. Reduction of energy a nd water requirements a lso help s to conserve natural resources. A highly adv anced design mea ns that your vehic le can be easily disassembled at the end of its working life, and the individual materials separated for subsequent re-use. Materia ls such as asbestos and cadmium are not used . The refrigerant in the air conditioning system 3 is C FC -free. Drive in an energy and enviro nmen t-co nscious way z High fuel consumption, noise lev els and exhaust emission are often caused b y a driving style that is not energy and env ironment-c onscious. z Y ou should therefore drive with energy in mind: "more miles with less fuel". z 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 consumption depends to a great extent on your own personal driving style. The follow ing hints are intended to help you consume fuel at a rate that is as close as possible to the specified lev els. Check your vehic le’s fuel consum ption every time you refuel. This facilita tes early detection of a ny irregularities causing increased fuel consumption. 97 Warming up z Full throttle and w arming up at idle speed increase w ear, fuel consumption, fuel emission, the a mount of pollutant in the exhaust a nd 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 quantity of emission and the p roportion of polluta nt in the ex haust. z Do not accelerate a nd brake unnecessarily . Drive at uniform speed. Avoid frequent starting off and stopping e.g . at traffic lights, in short distance tra ffic and in queues of traffic by m eans of clever planning . Select road s w ith good traffic flow . Idling z The eng ine also consumes fuel when idling . z If you have to wait for more than one minute, it is worthwhile switching off the engine. Fiv e m inutes of idling corresponds to ap prox . one kilometre (0.6 m iles) of driv ing . 98 Save fuel, protect th e environment Overrun z The fuel supply is automatically shut off during ov errun, e. g. when the vehicle is being driven down long gradients or during b ra king - see page 96. z To enable the overrun cut-off to take effect and save fuel, do not accelerate or declutch. Correct gear selection z High revs increase engine w ear and fuel consumption. z Do not race your engine. Avoid d riv ing at high engine speeds. Driv ing with an ey e on the tachom eter saves fuel. I f possib le, drive a t low rev s in each gear and a t constant speed. Drive in top gear as much as possible, shift up as soon as possible and do not shift down prema turely. High speed z The faster the speed, the higher the consumption and noise lev el. Driv ing at full throttle uses up a g reat deal of fuel and generates ex cessive noise a nd hig h emission levels. z Slightly relea sing the accelerator ped al results in distinct fuel savings with no major loss of speed. Drive at no more tha n around three quarters of max imum speed and you will use up to 50% less fuel, without losing a great deal of time. Tyre inflation pressure z Inadequate ty re p ressure, leading to higher road resistance, costs m oney in two wa ys: for more fuel and increased tyre wear. z Regular checks (every 14 d ays) pay off. Electrical loads z The power consum ption of electrical equip ment increa ses fuel consumption. z Sw itch off all a dditional c onsumers (e. g. air conditioning 3, heated rear window 3 ) when they are no longer req uired. Roof racks z Roof racks can increase fuel consump tion by approx. 3.5 gal /1000 miles (1litre /100 km) due to air resistance. z Remove them if they are not being used. Repair and maintenanc e z Improper repairs or adjustm ent and maintenance work can increase fuel consumption. Do not carry out w ork on the eng ine yourself.

Extreme drivin g conditions z Driv ing up steep gradients, cornering, driving on poor roads, and winter driving all increase fuel consumption. Fuel consumption increa ses dramatically in urba n tra ffic a nd at winter temperatures, especially on short trip s when the engine operating tempera ture is not reached. z Follow the hints given above to keep consumption to a m inimum under suc h cond itions. Fuel consumption , fuel, refuellin g Fuel consumption, fuel, refuelling Fuel c onsum ption Fuel for petrol engines Optional equip ment (e.g. w id e ty res, air conditioning system, tow ing equipment) increases the k erb weight and in some cases also the permissible gross vehic le weight. This in turn increases fuel consumption and reduc es the m aximum speed of the vehicle. C om mercially availab le high-quality fuel with a max imum ethanol content of 5 % as per DIN EN 228 (catalytic c onverter - see pag e 102, octane numbers - see page 163). Fuel quality has a d ecisive influence on p ow er output, running behaviour and service life of the engine. The ad ditiv es conta ined in the fuel play an important role in this reg ard. Y ou should therefore only use high-quality fuels containing additives. When the vehicle is new, there is increased friction between the engine and tra nsmission components lasting for several thousand miles. This inc reases fuel consumption.

Fuel with too low an octane number can cause pink ing. Va ux hall cannot be held liable for resulting damage. Petrol with a hig her octane number can alway s be used . Pump nozzles for leaded fuel ca nnot be inserted into the filler nec k of vehicles tha t operate on unlead ed fuel. The ignition timing is automatically adjusted according to the grad e of fuel used (octane num ber) – see page 163. Use of petrol with an octane rating of 95 will ensure economical driv ing. 100 Fuel c onsum ption, fuel, refuelling Fuel fo r diesel en gines Diesel engines must be operated only on commercially ava ila ble diesel fuel meeting the specific ations of DIN EN 590. Do not use ma rine diesel oils, heating oils or entirely or partially plant-b ased diesel fuels, such as rape seed oil or b io diesel, Aquazole and sim ilar diesel-w ater emulsions. The flow a nd filterability of diesel fuel are tem perature-d epend ent. Diesel fuels with improved lowtem perature properties are therefore ava ilab le 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 d iesel fuels with winter p roperties that are guaranteed by the m anufacturer and when using diesel fuel filters that are heated depending on the outside temperature. Do not mix diesel fuel with fuel for petrol engines. Refu elling 9 Warning C are m ust be taken when handling fuel. Before refuelling, switch off the engine and a ny ex ternal heaters with combustion cha mbers (identified by a sticker on the tank flap). S witch off mobile phones. Fuel is flammab le and explosive. Therefore, av oid naked flames and sparks when handling or in the v ic inity of fuel. Do not smoke! This also applies in places where fuel can only b e detec ted by its characteristic sm ell. If y ou can smell fuel in the vehicle, have the ca use thereof rem edied imm ediately. We recomm end that you consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Parkin g distance sensor 3 The parking dista nc e sensor makes rev erse park ing easier b y measuring the dista nce between the rear of the v ehicle and an obstacle through ultrasonic reflection and warning y ou w ith a n acoustic signal in the passenger compartment. The sy stem rec ords the distance using sensors in the rear bum per. The parking distance sensor is automatically enabled when the ignition is switched on a nd reverse gear is selected. Readiness for operation is indica ted by brief acoustic a la rm . 6 108 Drive con trol systems As the vehic le slowly gets close to an ob ject while reversing, a n intermittent acoustic signa l is aud ible in the passenger compartment. Permanent deac tiva tion With the ignition on and rev erse gear selected, press and hold E pushbutton on instrument panel for ap prox . 3 seconds. The interv al between the signals becomes shorter as the distance is reduced. If the distance is less than 25 c m, a continuous signa l is aud ible. The sy stem is dea ctivated and will not operate. When reverse gear is selected, no acoustic sig nal will sound. To reactivate perma nent dea ctiv ation: Press again and hold E pushbutton for three seconds. The next time rev erse g ear is selec ted p arking dista nce sensor will function. 9 Warning Und er certain circum stances, various reflective surfaces on objects or clothing as w ell as external noise sourc es may cause the system to fail to detect ob stacles. For this reason, care must be ta ken when reversing even if the pa rk ing distance sensor is operational. This is of particular importance when in the vicinity of p edestrians. It is possible to permanently or temporarily deactiv ate the sy stem. The sy stem registers the d istance by means of sensors on the rear bumper. When reverse gea r is selected, no acoustic signal will sound indicating deactivation. To ensure that the sensors function correctly and that the information provided is accurate, they must b e undamaged and free of dirt, snow and ice.

With the engine stopped the serv o assista nce is discontinued after the brake pedal ha s b een depressed once or twice. The braking action will not b e reduc ed but greater ped al pressure will be necessary. Ta ke extra care w hen the v ehicle is being tow ed. Foot brake The b ra king sy stem com prises two separate brake circuits. If one brake circuit should fail, the vehicle can still b e stopped with the second remaining circuit. I f this happens, the brake pedal must be fully depressed w ith greater pedal p ressure. The distance required for brak ing will be greater. C onsult a workshop before continuing to drive. We recom mend that you consult a Va ux ha ll Authorised Repairer. Check the brak e lights before sta rting out on a journey. Shortly after the start of eac h journey the brake system should be tested at low speed for its effectiveness, especially if the brakes are wet, e.g. after w ashing your vehicle. The brake fluid lev el should be checked regularly - see p age 151. Hand brake Alway s a pply the hand brake firmly. On slopes apply the hand b ra ke as firmly as possible. The mechanical hand brake acts on the brak es on the rear wheels. It eng ages automatically when app lied. To release the hand brake pull the lev er up slightly , press the ratchet knob, and fully lower and release. Brakes ABS u 3 The ABS (anti-lock b ra ke system ) continuously monitors the v ehicle's brake sy stem and prevents the wheels from lock ing , irrespec tiv e of the road condition and tyre grip. Cont rol indica tor R for bra ke system Control indicator lights up when ignition is switched on if hand brake is app lied and/or fluid level for brake system is too low. Brak e fluid lev el - see pa ge 151. 9 Warning If the control ind icator lights up w hen the hand brake is not ap plied: stop v ehicle; interrupt your journey immediately . Consult a workshop. We recommend y our Vauxhall Authorised Rep airer. It starts to regulate the brak ing pressure as soon as a wheel shows a tendency to loc k. The vehic le remains steerable, even in the event of very heav y braking, for instance on b ends or when swerv ing to avoid a n ob stacle. Even in the case of full-on braking, the ABS m akes it possible to d riv e round an obstacle without releasing the brakes. AB S control is m ade apparent through a pulse in the brak e pedal a nd the noise of the reg ulation process. 115 9 Warnin g For optimum braking, keep the brak e peda l fully dep ressed throughout the braking process, despite the fa ct that the peda l is pulsating. Do not reduce the pressure on the pedal. Do not let this special safety feature tempt you into ta king risk s w hen driving. Tra ffic safety can only b e ac hieved by adopting a responsible d riv ing sty le. 116 Brakes 9 Warning If there is a fault in the ABS , the rear wheels may tend to lock in the event of unusually heav y braking. This may ca use the v ehicle to swerv e. The benefits of the ABS are lost. You can continue driving, prov ided you drive with care a nd antic ipation Cont rol indica tor u for ABS When the ig nition is sw itched on, the ABS control indica tor lig hts up. At the same time, the system performs a self-check which may be audible. When the control indicator goes out the system is ready for opera tion. If the control indicator does not g o out after a few seconds, or if it lights up during driving, there is a fault in the ABS. The vehic le's brake system remains operational without AB S reg ulation. Have the ca use of the fault rem edied. We recommend that you consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

If tyres of a different size to those fitted at the factory are used (this includes winter tyres), the electronic speedometer m ay possibly need to be reprogrammed to ensure that the speed d isplay ed is correct. 117 Fitti ng new tyr es N ew ty res should be fitted in pairs, or for preference in sets. Mak e sure that both tyres on an axle are z the same siz e z the same design z the same make z and have the same tread pattern. 9 Warnin g We recom mend that you consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repa irer to have the tyres replaced. Your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer knows the legal reg ulations conc erning the disposa l of tyres and therefore protects the env ironment and your health. Tyre inflation pressure C heck ty re pressures, including the spare wheel, a t least every 14 da ys and prior to any long journey . The ty res should be checked when cold. Don't forget to check the spare. Tyre pressures - see page 167. 118 Wheels, tyres 9 Warning If the pressure is too low, this ca n result in consid erable tyre warm-up and internal dam age, lead ing to tread separation and ev en to ty re blow-out at high speeds. Hidden ty re d amage is not eliminated by subsequently adjusting the inflation pressure. Increa sed pressure resulting from tyre warm-up must not be red uced, otherw ise the p ressure may drop below the permissible minimum. After having checked the ty re p ressures, securely tighten the valve caps. Incorrect inflation pressures will impair safety, vehicle handling , comfort and fuel economy and will increase tyre wear. Tyre condition, wheel co nditio n Driving over sha rp edg es can lead to hidden tyre damage and w heel d amage which is only noticed la ter on: there is a danger of tyre blow-out. Drive over edges slowly and at a right angle if possible. When parking, ensure that the tyres are not pressed ag ainst the edge of the kerb. Wheels, tyres 119 Check ty res regularly for da mage (foreign bodies, punctures, cuts, cra cks, bulges in sidewalls). C heck w heels for dama ge. In the event of damage or abnormal w ear, consult a workshop. We rec om mend that you consult y our Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. 9 Warning Da mage may lead to tyre blowout. Tr ead depth Check tread depth regularly. S hould the front tyres show greater wear tha n the rea r tyres, have both front wheels exchanged with the rea r wheels so that the ty res with deeper tread are on the front axle. For safety reasons, tyres should be replaced when their tread depth has worn down to 2 to 3 mm . The legal p ermissible minimum tread d epth (1.6 mm) has been reached when the tread has worn down as far as one of the wear indicators. A num ber of wear indicators are spaced at equal interva ls around the tyre within the tread. Their p osition is indicated by markings on the tyre sidewall. 120 Wheels, tyres If y ou use the spare wheel when it is fitted with a summer tyre: the vehicle's driveability ma y be affected , especially on slippery road surfaces. O btain a replacem ent for the faulty ty re as soon as possible, and ha ve the wheel balanced and fitted to the v ehicle. Genera l informa tion Note that the da nger of aquaplaning is greater if the tyres are worn. Tyres a ge, even if they are used only very little or not at a ll. A spare wheel 3 which has not been used for six years should be used only in emergencies; driv e slowly when using such ty res.

Y our Vauxhall Authorised Repairer has instructions on how to install the trailer hitch and making any changes to the vehicle that are need ed that a ffect the cooling system or other equip ment. Mounting dimensions of towing equipment - see page 171. 1) Ob serve n atio nal regula tions. Roof rack, caravan and trailer towin g The p ermissible carav an/trailer loads for your v ehicle are given in the vehic le p apers. Unless otherwise stated, they are v alid for gradients up to m ax. 12%. The permissible cara van/trailer load should be fully utiliz ed only by driv ers who are adequately ex perienced in towing large carava ns/trailers. In higher elevations the engine output and gradab ility may drop so that it may not be possible for the permissible caravan/trailer loads to be fully utiliz ed in m ountainous territory. The a ctual caravan/trailer load plus the actual gross vehicle weight m ust not exceed the maxim um perm itted towing weight. For exam ple, if the perm itted gross vehic le weight is utilised, the ca ra van/ trailer load must only be used until the max imum permitted towing weight is rea ched. The max imum permitted towing weight is shown on the identifica tion plate, see page 161. 123 Coupling socket load The coupling sock et load is the load exerted by the caravan/tra iler on the coupling ball. It can be varied by cha nging the weight distribution when loading the caravan/trailer. The max im um perm issible coupling sock et loa d for the towing vehicle, stated on the label, should alway s be a im ed for, particula rly in the ca se of heavy carav ans/ tra ilers. The coupling socket loa d should never be below 25 kg. In the case of caravan/tra iler loads of 1200 k g or more, the c oupling socket load should not be less than 50 kg. When m easuring the coupling sock et load, make sure that the draw bar of the loaded caravan/trailer is at the same heig ht a s it will be when the c aravan/trailer is coupled with the towing v ehicle loaded. Particularly important for trailers/caravans with tand em axle. Rear axle load during towing When the carav an/trailer is coupled and the towing vehic le fully loaded (including all occupants), the perm issible rear ax le loa d must not be exceeded. Tyre inflation pressure Increase the ty re p ressure on the towing vehicle to the value specified for full load (see page 167). Also check the pressure of the caravan/trailer tyres. 124 Roof rack, caravan and trailer towing Driving characteristics, towing tips In the case of cara vans/trailers with b ra kes, attach the break away stopping cab le. Before coupling the carav an/trailer, lubricate the ball of the caravan/tra iler towing device. However, do not do so if a stabilizer which acts on the coupling ball is being used to dam p rolling motions. Handling is greatly influenced by the loading of the caravan/trailer. Loads should therefore be secured so that they cannot slip a nd placed in the centre of the carava n/trailer if possib le, i. e. above the axle. Genuine Vauxhall Accessories which can be subsequently fitted aid trailer opera tion, e.g. large mirrors for wide trailers/ca ra vans. In the case of trailers/c aravans with low direc tional stability, it is advisable to use a stabilizer to d amp rolling motions. Do not drive faster tha n 50 mph (80 km/h) if possible, even in c ountries where higher speeds are p ermitted . Make sure that you have enough room when cornering and a void sud den manoeuvres. If the cara van/trailer starts to sway, drive more slowly, d o not a ttempt to correct the steering and b ra ke sharply if necessary. Elec trica lly driven fan: The fan cooling capacity is not dependant on engine speed. It is not necessary, therefore when driving uphill to shift down into a lower gear if the vehicle can c lim b in a higher gear. When coup led to a caravan/tra iler the vehicle requires m ore braking effort when driving down long gradients, so select the sam e gear as you would d riv ing uphill and drive at roug hly the same speed. Remember that the bra king dista nce for vehicles towing c aravans/trailers is always greater tha n the braking distance for vehicles not towing a caravan/trailer. Starting o n inclines Hold engine rpm constant, engage clutch gradually (let slip), relea se b ra ke and open throttle. I f possible, the eng ine speed should not drop during this proced ure. For vehicles with Tecshift 3 in automatic mode, a pply sufficient throttle. Before starting off under ex treme conditions (high combination weight, mountainous terrain w ith steep inclines), switch off all unnecessary electrical loads (e.g. heated rear window).

Y ou will find the Service Booklet in the literature pack. Hav e serv ice w ork – and repair work to body and equipment – carried out b y professionals. We recomm end that y ou consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repa irer. Y our Vauxhall Authorised Repa irer has excellent knowledg e of Vauxhall vehicles, and has the special tools and the latest Vauxhall service instructions. It is particularly a dvisable to use a Vauxhall Authorised Repa irer during the wa rra nty period to avoid loss of wa rra nty claims. See S ervice Booklet for ad ditional information. Sepa rate anti-p er for ation inspection Hav e this inspection performed regularly, either within the scope of a Service or sepa ra tely, see Servic e Booklet. We recommend that y ou consult y our Vauxhall Authorised Repa irer in order to avoid loss of warranty claims for repair. Service plan, mainten ance Nev er ca rry out any repairs or a djustment and maintenance work on the vehicle yourself. This especially applies to the engine, cha ssis a nd safety parts. Y ou m ay out of ignorance infringe the provisions of the law a nd , by not performing the w ork prop erly, you may endanger yourself and other road users. Checking and topping up fluids A note on safety To avoid the possibility of injury, only ca rry out engine compartment checks (e. g. check ing the b ra ke fluid level or the eng ine oil lev el) when the ignition is switched off. 9 Warning The cooling fan may be op erated by a thermoswitch a nd can therefore sta rt to op erate unexpectedly ev en when the ig nition is sw itched off. Risk of injury . Elec tronic ignition system s generate very high v oltag es. Do not touch the ignition system ; high voltage can be fatal. To aid identification, the engine oil filler cap, the coolant ex pansion tank cap , the lid of the fluid container for the windscreen wash system and the ha nd le of the oil dipstick may be coloured yellow . 145 Engine o il Information on engine oils is availab le in the Serv ice Booklet. Engine oil level It is normal for every engine to consume some oil, and it is som etimes necessary to check and top up the eng ine oil lev el between oil changes. 9 Warnin g Do not allow the engine oil level to d rop below the minimum level! For this reason the engine oil level should be chec ked every 300 miles (500 km) or before starting a long trip. 9 Warnin g Imp ortant: I t is the owner’ s responsibility to maintain the proper lev el of an appropriate qua lity oil in the engine. 146 Service plan, maintenance The illustra tions show checking and rep lenishing the oil in the petrol and diesel engines resp ectively. To check the level, rem ov e the oil gauge (dipstic k), wipe it clean and re-insert it a s far as it will go. Eng ine oi l level check and topp ing up The oil level must be c hecked with the vehic le horizonta l and with the engine (which must be a t operating temperature) switched off. Wait ap prox imately 10 minutes before check ing the level to allow the normal oil accumulation in the engine to drain bac k into the oil pan. On F9Q engines the oil gauge is mounted on the oil filler cap which must be rotated anti-clock wise to open. For M9R engines, rotate cap anticlockw ise, rem ov e the oil gauge, wipe it clean and re-insert it a s far as it will go. Service plan, mainten ance Top up if the oil level has dropped to the "ad d oil" ma rk A. The oil level must not go above the upper mark B on the dipstick . This would lead, for example, to increa sed oil consump tion, excessive formation of ca rb on residue and a p ossible risk of dam age to the cataly tic converter or engine. When replenishing , attem pt to use the sam e ty pe of oil as used at the last oil cha ng e. 147 To prevent spillage when replenishing the eng ine oil on F9Q engines, use the funnel stored in the front of the engine compa rtm ent. To release the funnel, raise the plastic catch on the funnel and lift upwards. 148 Service plan, maintenance Remove the caps and ensure funnel is securely located onto the filler pipe. Ensure the funnel is replaced securely together with both end ca ps fitted. Capacities - see page 168. A stab iliza tion of the oil consumption will not tak e p la ce until the v ehicle ha s b een driven sev eral thousand miles. O nly then can the ac tual degree of consumption be established. If consumption exc eeds m ore tha n 0.5 litre every 600 m iles (1000 km) after this running-in period, c onsult a workshop. We recommend your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. Remove the oil filler c ap and top up as required. Do not overfill. Service plan, mainten ance 149 O il change, oil filter change Engine oil changes are to be carried out depending on time intervals or mileage intervals, since oil loses its lubrication properties not only through engine opera tion but also through ageing. We recommend that you use genuine Vauxhall oil filters. 9 Warning Used engine oil filters and empty oil containers should not b e disposed of a s domestic refuse. We rec om mend that you entrust oil and oil filter changes to a Vauxhall Authorised Rep airer, w ho is fam ilia r with legal requirements regarding disposal of used oil and ca n thus help to protect both the environment and your health. Diesel fuel filter Dra in fuel filter of residual water at every engine oil c hange. Plac e a container und erneath the filter housing. Loosen the knurled screws on the filter cover a nd on the lower pa rt of filter by approx. one turn to drain off the water. The filter is drained as soon as diesel emerges from the knurled screw at the bottom . Retig hten the two screw s. Check fuel filter at shorter interv als if the vehicle is subjected to extreme op erating conditions such a s high humidity (primarily in coastal a reas), extremely high or low outside temperatures and sub stantially varying da ytime and night-tim e temperatures. Engine air flow indicator 3 O n certain models, an indicator is located in the engine induction system and indicates if the air-inta ke to the engine is restricted . C lear = No restriction Red tell-tale = Restricted If the red tell-tale is d isplay ed w hen the eng ine is running consult a workshop. We recommend your Vaux hall Authorised Repairer. 150 Service plan, maintenance Coolant During operation the sy stem is pressurized. The temp erature may therefore rise to ov er 100 °C . The a nti-freeze provides excellent corrosion protection for the c ooling and heating system , as well as freez e protection down to -28 °C. Certain types of a nti-freeze can lea d to engine dama ge. We therefore strongly recom mend the use of anti-freeze that has been app rov ed b y Vauxhall. 9 Warning Anti-freeze is a danger to health; it must therefore be kept in the original container and out of the rea ch of children. Freeze prot ect ion and corr osion protection Before the start of the cold weather season, ha ve the coolant checked for correc t concentration. We rec om mend that you consult y our Va ux ha ll Authorised Repairer. The amount of antifreez e m ust provide protection down to approx. –28 °C. If the antifreeze concentration is too low, this reduces protection from freezing and corrosion. Top up antifreeze if necessary. If coolant loss is top ped up with water, ha ve a nti-freeze concentration checked and more anti-freeze a dded as necessary. C ool ant level Hard ly any losses occur since the c ooling system is sea led a nd it is thus rarely nec essary to top up the coola nt. The coolant level in the expansion ta nk should be slightly abov e the MIN mark when the system is cold. It rises at eng ine operating temperature and drops a gain when the engine cools down. If the level falls below the MIN mark, the coolant should be replenished to a little over the ma rk . Service plan, mainten ance 9 Warning Allow engine to cool d ow n before removing coolant filler cap. Remove filler cap c arefully so that pressure c an escape slowly, otherwise there is a risk of scalding. Top up anti-freeze. If no anti-freez e is ava ilab le, top up with clea n ta p water. If tap water is unavailable, distilled water can be used. After top ping up with tap or d istilled water, have the anti-freeze conc entration check ed, and anti-freeze a dded if necessary. Have the cause of the coolant loss remed ied. We rec om mend that you consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. When closing, tighten coolant filler cap as far as it will go. 151 Coolant tem perature For physical reasons, the engine temperature gauge show s the coolant temperature only if the coolant level is adeq uate. During operation the system is pressurized. The temperature m ay therefore rise to over 100 °C. If the tempera ture gauge enters the up permost zone, check the coolant lev el immed iately. z C oolant level too low: Top up coolant. Pay strict attention to the instructions given under “Anti-freeze and c orrosion p rotection" and "C oola nt level". Have the cause of coolant loss rem edied. We recomm end that y ou consult y our Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. z C oolant level OK : Hav e the cause of increased coolant temperature remedied . Contact a workshop . We recommend that you consult y our Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. Brake fluid Brak e fluid level 9 Warnin g Caution - brake fluid is poisonous a nd corrosive. Do not allow it to contact ey es, skin, fabrics or painted surfa ces. Direc t contac t may cause injuries and damag e. 152 Service plan, maintenance The fluid level in the container must not be higher than the " MAX" mark or lower than the " MIN" mark. Use of some brake fluid s could c ause dam age or im pair braking effectiveness. Stay well informed. We recomm end that you use Vauxhall-approved high performance brake fluid. Ex treme cleanliness is important, sinc e brake fluid contamination can lead to brake system malfunctions. After correcting the brake fluid lev el, ha ve the c ause of the loss remedied. We recom mend tha t you consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. Brake fluid change As brak e fluid is hygroscopic, it ab sorbs water. Vapour bubbles which impair the braking effect may occur during braking. The fluid change intervals specified in the Serv ic e Booklet must therefore be ob served. 9 Warning We recomm end that you hav e brake fluid changed by a Vaux hall Authorised Repairer, who will be familiar with the req uirements of the law as regards disposal of brake fluid and can thus help to protec t the env ironment and your hea lth. Win dscreen wiper C lear v ision is essential for safe driving. Perform regular check s on the windsc reen wipers to ensure they are operating correc tly . We recommend wiper blade replacem ent at least once a year. If the windsc reen is dirty, operate the windscreen wash sy stem before switching on the wind screen wiper. This will avoid wiper blade wear. Do not switch on the windscreen wiper if the wind screen is iced up as this could dam age the wiper blades or the wiper system. If the w ip er become frozen on to the glass, we rec om mend that they be released with the aid of Vauxhall De-icer Spray . Service plan, mainten ance Sm earing w ip er b la des ca n be clea ned w ith a soft cloth and Vaux hall Windscreen Wash Solvent. Wiper b la des whose lips have become hardened, cracked or c ov ered with silicone must be replaced. This may be necessary as a result of the effects of ice, tha wing salt or heat, or the incorrect use of cleaning agents. Switch off the wind screen wiper in car washes – see pa ges 14 and 158. Wind screen wiper care – see page 160. To ensure proper op eration of the rain sensor 3, the sensor area must be free from dust, dirt and ice. The w indscreen wash sy stem must also be operated at reg ular intervals and the sensor area must be de-iced. Vehicles with ra in sensor can be identified b y the sensor area near the top of the windscreen. Front wi nd sc reen wi per Lift wiper arm, mov e release lever and detach wiper blade. Rear w indscreen w iper 3 Lift wiper arm, rotate wiper blade and detach. 153 154 Service plan, maintenance The w indscreen w ash sy stem w ill not freeze in winter: Freeze protection down to - 5 °C - 10 °C - 20 °C - 30 °C Mixture - Vauxhall Windscreen Wash Solvent : Water 1 :3 1 :2 1 :1 2 :1 When closing the container, press the lid firmly over the beaded ed ge. Windscreen wash system Power steering flu id The filler op ening of the fluid conta iner for the w indscreen wash system is located on the front left-hand side - as seen from the front of the engine compartment. The power steering fluid does not require any additiona l maintenance than tha t detailed in the Service Booklet. Fill only with clean w ater to prevent the nozzles from clogging. To improve cleaning efficiency, we recommend that you add a little Vauxhall Wind screen Wash Solvent. If the fluid in the reservoir falls below the MIN mark consult a workshop. We recommend your Vaux hall Authorised Repairer. Service plan, mainten ance 155 Battery maintenance 3 If the ba ttery installed to your vehicle is not maintenance free: Remove ba ttery ca ps and ensure electroly te level is 15 mm ab ov e the plates. Ad d distilled or demineralised water to correct the level. If ba ttery fluid lev el drops below the plates, do not attempt to test or recharge the battery or jum p sta rt the engine. 9 Warning Battery Batt ery acc ess The b attery is located beneath the front left-hand seat floor pa nel - see page 127. 9 Warning Ensure adequa te v entilation w hen cha rg ing the battery. There is a risk of explosion if gases generated during cha rg ing are a llowed to ac cum ulate! Add itional b attery 3 Dep ending on the v ehicle auxiliary equipm ent certain models ma y have an additional battery located nex t to the vehic le ba ttery. We recommend that you have battery changes ca rried out by a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. The Vauxhall Authorised Repairer knows the laws concerning the disposal of used batteries and therefore protects the environment and y our health. Elec trica l or electronic accessories fitted at a later stage can place an additional load on the battery or discharge the battery . Consult a work shop. We recom mend a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, a s regards technical possibilities, such as fitting a more powerful or an additional battery . Protection o f electronic com ponents In order to avoid the brea kdown of electronic components within the electrical system, never disconnect the b attery w ith the engine running. Nev er start the engine while the battery is disconnected (e.g. when using jump leads). 156 Service plan, maintenance The battery must be d isconnected from the vehic le before being charged : first disconnect the negativ e cable and then the positiv e ca ble. The polarity of the battery , i.e. the connections for the positive and nega tiv e ca bles, must not be interchanged . When rec onnecting, first connect the positive cable and then the nega tiv e ca ble. To avoid damaging the vehicle, do not mak e any modifications to the electrical system, e.g . connecting add itional consumers or tampering with elec tronic control units (chip tuning). 9 Warning Electronic ignition systems generate very high voltages. Do not touch the ignition system; hig h voltage can be fatal. Di sc onnecti ng/connect ing the bat ter y from/to the elec trica l system Disconnect the battery from the v ehicle electrica l sy stem before charging: First detach the negative and then the positive lead. Do not reverse the p ola rity of the battery, i.e. do not confuse the termina ls for the positive and negative lead s. When connecting, start with the positive lead and then connect the negative lead . Vehicle storage If y our vehicle is to be stored for long period s w ithout use, w e recommend you consult y our Vauxhall Authorised Repairer for adv ic e. Vehicle care Vehicle care Consult a Vauxhall Authorised Rep airer with regard to care a id s tested and recommended by Vauxhall. In caring for your vehicle observe all na tional environm ental reg ulations, particula rly when wa shing your vehicle. Regular, thorough care contributes to improving the a ppearance of your vehicle and maintaining its value. It is also a prereq uisite for cla im s made und er the warranty in the event of paint or corrosion damage. In the following pages, we g iv e you tips for v ehicle care whic h, w ith correct use, will help to ward off unavoidable and ha rm ful environm ental influences. Vehicle care aids 3 Vehicle wash: z Car S ha mpoo z Sponges z Chamois Leather z Wheel C leaners z Engine Cleaners z Glass C leaners Exterior care: z Touch-up Paints z Car Polishes/Colour Restorers z Car Wax es/Sealers z Rust Preventative z Lubricant S prays z De-icer Spray s z Windscreen Wash S olv ent Interior ca re: z Interior/Upholstery C leaner 157 158 Veh icle c are Washin g The paintwork of your v ehicle is exposed to env ironmenta l influences, e. g. continuous changes in weather conditions, ind ustrial waste gases and dust or tha wing sa lts, so wash and wax your v ehicle regularly. When using a utoma tic car washes, select a programme which includes wax ing. Bird droppings, dead insects, resin, pollen and the like should be cleaned off immediately , as they contain aggressive constituents which can cause paint dam age. If using a car w ash, comply w ith the pertinent instructions of the ca r wash manufacturer. The windsc reen w iper, the automatic wiper with rain sensor 3, and the back door / ta ilg ate window wiper m ust be switc hed off – see pa ge 14. Remove detachable rod antenna. Sta nd on the door sill to reach them more easily. If y ou w ash y our v ehicle by hand, make sure that the insides of the wing s a re also thoroughly rinsed out. Clea n edges and folds on op ened doors and flaps as well a s the area s they cover. Thoroughly rinse off and leather-off the vehicle. Rinse leather frequently . Use separate leathers for paint and w indow surfaces: remnants of wax on the wind ow s will impair vision. Observ e national regulations. Waxing Wax your vehicle regularly, in pa rticular after it has been washed using shampoo and at the latest when wa ter no longer forms beads on the pa intwork, otherwise the paintwork will d ry out. Also wax edg es a nd folds on op ened doors and flaps as well a s the area s they cover. Polishing Polishing is necessary only if the pa int has become dull or if solid deposits have become attached to it. Paintwork polish with silicone forms a protective film , ma king 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 w heel c leaning agent to clean the wheels. Wheels a re painted and ca n be treated with the same ag ents as the body. For alloy wheels we recomm end use of Alloy Wheel Preserv er. Vehicle care 159 Paintwork damage Plastic and rubber parts Seat belts Repair small area s of p aint damage suc h as stone impacts, scratches etc. immediately using a Va ux ha ll touch-up applicator or Vauxhall sp ra y and touch-up paint before rust can form . If rust has alrea dy formed, ha ve the c ause remedied. We recommend that you consult y our Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. Please also pay attention to surfaces and edg es beneath the v ehicle where rust ma y have formed unnoticed for some time. For add itional cleaning of plastic and rubb er parts use cleaner suitable for vehicle interiors. Do not use any other agent, and in particula r do not use solvents or petrol. Alway s k eep seat b elts clean a nd dry. Wheels and tyres When cleaning the hea ted b ack door or tailgate windows, mak e sure that the hea ting element on the inside of the window is not dam aged. Exterio r lights Headlight and other protective lig ht bezels are made of plastic. If they require additional cleaning after the vehicle has been washed, clea n them with C ar Shamp oo. Do not use any ab ra sive or caustic agents, do not use an ice scraper, and do not clean them dry. Do not use high-pressure jet clea ners on wheels and tyres. In terior and uph olstery Clea n the vehicle interior, including the instrument panel fasc ia , using interior cleaner. Clea n fa bric upholstery with a va cuum cleaner and brush. To remove stains, use cleaner that is suitable for both fabrics a nd vinyl. Do not use cleaning agents such as acetone, carbon tetrachloride, paint thinner, paint remov er, nail v arnish remover, washing powder or blea ch to clean fabrics, ca rp ets, the dashboard or leather trim 3 in the vehicle interior. Petrol is a lso unsuitable. C lean only with lukewarm w ater or upholstery cleaner. Win dows Use a soft lint-free cloth or chamois leather in conjunction with Window Cleaner a nd Insect R emover. Vauxhall Wind screen Wash Solvent is suita ble for de-icing windows. For mec ha nical removal of ice, use a comm ercially available sharp-edged ice scraper. Press the scraper firmly against the glass so that no dirt can get under it and scratch the glass. 160 Veh icle c are Windscreen wiper blades Wax, such as that used in car wa shes, c an cause streak s to form on the windsc reen when the wiper is used . Sm earing w ip er b la des ca n be clea ned w ith a soft cloth and Vaux hall Windscreen Wash Solvent, and replaced if necessa ry – see page 152. Locks The locks are lubrica ted with a high-grade lock cy lind er grease at the factory. Vauxhall lock cylinder grease prevents the locks from freezing up. O nly use de-icing agent in emergencies, as they hav e a degreasing effect and will im pair the func tion of the lock s. After using a de-icing agent, have the locks re-greased. We recom mend that y ou entrust this to your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. Engine co mpartment Areas of the engine compartment that are painted in the same colour as the vehic le must be looked after lik e any other p ainted surface. It is adv isable to wash the engine compartment before and after winter and preserve it with wax. Cover alternator and brake fluid reserv oir with plastic sheets before washing the eng ine. When w ashing the engine with a steam-jet cleaner, do not direc t the steam jet at components of the anti-lock brake system 3, the air conditioning system 3 or the belt drive and its components. Protective wax that has been ap plied is also removed during the engine wash. For this reason, have the engine, brak e system components in the engine compartment, axle com ponents 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 w ash ca n be p erformed in the spring in order to remov e dirt that has adhered to the engine comp artment, whic h may also have a high salt content. Check protectiv e w ax la yer and ma ke good if necessary. Do not use high-pressure jet clea ners on wheels and tyres. 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. O n vehicles whic h are wa shed frequently in automatic ca r washes with underbody washing facility, the protective wax coating may be im paired by dirt-dissolving add itiv es, so check the underb od y after washing and have it wax ed if necessary. Before the sta rt of the cold weather season, check the PVC coating and protectiv e wax coating and, if necessary, ha ve them restored to perfect condition. C aution – comm ercially available bitumen/ rubber materials can damage the PVC coating. We recom mend that y ou ha ve underbody work carried out by a Vauxhall Authorised Repa irer, who knows the prescribed materials and has experience in the use thereof. The underbody should be washed following the end of the cold weather season to remov e any dirt adhering to the underbody since this may also contain salt. C heck p rotective wax c oa ting and , if nec essary , have it restored to perfec t condition.
