Airbag systems 3
Front airb ag
The front airbag system is identified by the
word “Airbag ” on the steering w heel and
above the glov e c om partment 3.
The front airbag system comprises:
z an a irba g with a n inflator in the steering
wheel, and a second one abov e the
glov e c om partment 3
z the control elec tronics with impact
sensor
z the airbag system control indica tor v in
the instrument panel.
z Front passenger airba g deactivation 3
The front airb ag system is 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 indep endently of the side airb ag and
curtain airbag system s 3.
Exa mples:
z Imp act against a non-yielding ob stacle:
the front airbag is triggered at low
vehicle speed.
z Imp act against a yielding obstacle (suc h
as another vehicle): the front a irb ag is
only triggered at a higher vehicle speed.
The front airbag system provides
optimum protection when the seat,
backrest and head restraint are correctly
adjusted. Adjust the driver's seat
according to the occ upa nt's height such
tha t with the driver sitting upright, the
steering wheel is held in the area of its
up per spokes with the driver's arm s
slightly b ent. The passeng er seat should
be as fa r back a s p ossible, with the
backrest upright. Do not place the head,
body, ha nds or feet on the cover of the
airbag system.
Do not place any objec ts in the area in
which the airbags inflate.
The three-point seat belt must b e
correctly fitted (see page 57).

62
Safety systems
The front airbag system will not be
triggered in the event of
z the ignition b eing switched off
z minor frontal collisions
z accidents in which the v ehicle ov erturns
z collisions involving a side or rear impact
where it would not be of b enefit to the
occ upa nts.
9 Warning
Seat belts m ust therefore a lways be worn.
The front a irb ag system serv es to
supplement the three-point seat belts. If
you do not wea r your seat belt you risk
being seriously injured, or even thrown
from the vehic le, in the ev ent of an
accident.
The belt helps to keep y ou in the correct
seating position, in which the front airbag
system will provide you with effective
protection in the event of an ac cident.
Side airb ag 3
The side a irb ags are m ounted on the
outboard sides of the front seat backrests
to protect the oc cup ants in the event of a
severe side im pact.
The side a irb ag system c om prises:
z an airbag with infla tor in the back of the
driver's a nd front passenger's seat
respectively
z the control electronics
z side im pact sensors
z the airbag systems control ind icator v in
the instrum ent panel.
The side airbag sy stem will be triggered:
z depending on the sev erity of the
accident
z depending on the ty pe of im pact
z within the range shown in the illustration
z ind epend ently of the front airbag
sy stem.
Safety systems
63
When triggered the side airbag inflates in
milliseconds and forms a sa fety cushion for
driver and/or front passenger in the
respective door area. The risk of injury to
the upp er body in the event of a side
impac t is thereby substantially reduc ed.
9 Warning
There m ust be no objects in the area in
which the airbag inflates or in the area
between the seat back s a nd the vehicle
body. Do not pla ce the hands or arms on
the covers of the airbag system s.

Safety systems
When triggered the curtain airbag inflates
within milliseconds and provides a safety
barrier in the head area on the respective
side of the vehicle. This reduces the risk of
injury to the head considerably in case of a
side im pact.
9 Warnin g

Child restraint systems 3
Vauxhall child restraint sy stems are
designed specifically for y our vehicle and
thus provide optimum safety for your child
in the event of im pact. The use of a
Vauxhall C hild restraint sy stem is therefore
recom mended.
9 Warning
While using a c hild restra int system on
the front p assenger seat, the airbag
system s for the front passenger seat must

This is espec ially the case if back wardsfac ing child restra int sy stems are used on
the front p assenger seat.
Selec ting the rig ht system
Your child should be transported facing
rearwards in the vehicle as long as
possible. It is appropriate to change the
sy stem when the child ’s head can no longer
be p roperly supported at ey e height. The
child’ s cerv ical v erteb rae are still very weak
and in an acc id ent they suffer less stress in
the semi-prone rearward position than
when sitting upright.
Not e
z Children und er 12 years or und er 150 cm
tall should only trav el in an ap prop ria te
child sa fety sea t.
z When transporting c hildren, use the child
restra int system s suitable for the child's
weight.
z Ensure that the c hild restraint system to
be installed is c om patible with the
vehicle type.
z The covers of the Vauxhall child restraint
sy stem can b e wiped clean.
z Do not stick any thing on the child
restra int systems and do not cover them
with any other m aterials.
z A child restraint sy stem which has been
subjected to stress in an accident must
be replaced.
z Ensure that the m ounting loc ation of the
child restraint system within the vehic le is
correct.
z You should also ob serve the instructions
on installa tion and use supplied with the

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

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).

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.

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.
You may out of ignorance infringe
environmental law s b y not disposing of
materials properly.
Appropriate parts m ight not be rec ycled .
Contact with some of the materia ls
inv olv ed may p ose a hea lth haz ard.
z We recom mend that repairs and
maintenance be entrusted to a Vauxhall
Authorised Repairer.
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 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 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.

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

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

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.

Towing equipment 3
Towi ng eq uipment aud ible wa rning 3
For vehicles fitted with towing equipment 3
when connected to a caravan or trailer the
pitch of the audible wa rning changes upon
operating the turn signal lights. The pitch
of the aud ible wa rning w ill cha nge if the
carav an/trailer or towing vehicle turn
signal light fails.
Caravan/trailer loads 1)
The permissib le carav an/trailer load s a re
vehicle a nd engine-dependent max imum
va lues whic h must not be exceeded. The
actual caravan/trailer load is the difference
between the ac tual gross weig ht of the
carav an/trailer and the actual c oupling
socket loa d with the ca ra van/trailer
coupled .
When the caravan/tra iler load is being
checked , therefore, only the ca ra van/trailer
wheels - and not the jock ey wheel - m ust b e
standing on the weighing apparatus.
If the v ehicle is not equip ped with a trailer
hitch, we recommend having this
retrofitted by a Vauxhall Authorised
Repairer, who will ad vise you on any
possible towed load increases. 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).

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

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

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.

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.
