General comments

Requirements of "Traffic regulations" concerning towage should be observed.

The towing cable should be elastic not to damage both cars. It is necessary to use only a cable from synthetic fibers or similar elastic materials. However it is safer to use a towing bar!

It is necessary to watch constantly that did not arise it is inadmissible a big tension, and at the same time there was no considerable resistance to a car kacheniye. At car towage on edge of a dirt road always there is a danger of demolition on a roadside.

Before trying to start the engine towage, it is necessary to use whenever possible the storage battery of other car for engine start – address to the previous section.

Both drivers should know features of driving at the towage, stated below, and to have sufficient experience. Inexperienced drivers should not be at a wheel of any, other car.

When using a towing cable the driver of the towing car should at a troganiye from a place and gear shifting especially smoothly to release a coupling pedal.

The driver of the towed car should watch that the towing cable was constantly tense.

On both cars external light devices according to "Traffic regulations" should be switched on.
Ignition should be included the wheel was not blocked, and it was possible to include if necessary the turn index, a sound signal, screen wipers and stekloomyvatel.

The amplifier of a drive of working brake system executes the function only at the working engine therefore at the switched-off engine it is necessary to press much more strongly when braking a brake pedal.

As at the idle engine the amplifier of a wheel does not function, at turns it is necessary to make bigger effort a steering wheel.

In the absence of oil in AT it is necessary to tow the car only with the hung-out driving wheels.

There is a danger to remain outside when pushing or car towage:

The car is locked, if the electronic key is in the ignition lock in situation 2 (model with KEYLESS-GO system: in the provision of movement) and the car moves.

Function «During movement» can be switched off automatic locking (address to subsection «AUTOMATIC LOCKING of DOORS» in the section «Individual installation»).

After a detachment of plugs of the storage battery or at the discharged storage battery the electronic key in the lock of ignition does not turn any more, and the lever of the AT selector remains blocked in the situation "R". (The charging of the storage battery is considered in Head Routine maintenance, or the Section engine Start by means of the auxiliary storage battery).

Towage is allowed only by means of towing eyes. Do not attach a towing cable or a towing bar to elements of a running gear.

Cap 1 on a front bumper

Reception nests for a being screwed towing eye are behind caps on bumpers.

The towing eye is in a set of the onboard tool.

Cap 2 on a rear bumper

Installation of a towing eye

In a place of marking press in the arrow direction, raise a cap, do not pull together. A towing eye screw against the stop and tighten it by means of the key lever for wheels (from a set of the onboard tool).

Removal of a towing eye

Unscrew a towing eye and lay it in a runduchok for a set of the onboard tool.

Get a cap and fix it.

Instead of towage it is necessary to prefer car transportation on the special car or the trailer.

When towage is inevitable, we recommend to use a towing bar.

Povorachivaniye of an electronic key in the lock of ignition it is possible only at the attached and charged storage battery. If the electronic key in the lock of ignition does not give in to a povorachivaniye, the lever of the AT selector remains blocked in the situation "R".

Electronic key in the lock of ignition turn in situation 2.

The lever of the AT selector transfer to the situation "N".

Maximum speed of towage:

50 km/h.
Maximum distance of towage: 50 km.

Non-compliance maximum or distances of towage can lead speeds to transmission damage.

On big distances or in case of transmission damage towage is authorized only with the lifted back bridge or disconnected (from the back bridge) the driveshaft.

At towage with the lifted forward bridge or control of the parking brake at the stand for test of brakes the engine should be switched off. Otherwise owing to active braking action of electronic antiprobuksovochny system (ESP) there will be a damage of brake system of the back bridge.

Towage for the purpose of engine start

Emergency start of the engine by towage is impossible.

Car transportation

For car loading on the special car or the trailer towing eyes can be used.

When pushing car the lever of the AT selector transfer to the situation "N".

Fastening of the car is made only on wheels/disks.

In order to avoid damages it is impossible to fix the car for elements of a running gear, as, for example, cross-section or longitudinal levers of a suspension bracket.
