RECOVERY METHOD

CAUTION

Make sure that vehicle recovery or transportation is carried out by suitably qualified personnel and that the vehicle is secured correctly.

CAUTION

The recovery agent must activate the transmission park release before recovery starts. The procedure is covered in a separate publication for service personnel. Failure to activate the transmission park release can result in serious transmission damage.

CAUTION

Make sure that the steering column is unlocked during vehicle recovery. The smart key must remain inside the vehicle and the ignition must be switched on.

CAUTION

The vehicle should not be towed on all four wheels and should not be recovered with the front or rear wheels suspended. Doing so can result in serious transmission damage.

NOTES

If the vehicle's battery is to be disconnected, the steering column must be unlocked first. The steering column cannot be unlocked with the battery disconnected.

The recommended method for recovery or transportation of the vehicle is on a transporter or trailer designed for that purpose.
