CHECKING THE ELECTRIC MOTOR COOLANT LEVEL

CAUTION

Running the electric motor without coolant will cause serious electric motor damage.

CAUTION

If persistent coolant loss is noticed, seek qualified assistance immediately.

Check the electric motor coolant reservoir level at least every week. Check more frequently in high mileage or arduous conditions. Always check the level when the system is cold and the vehicle's electrical system is switched off.

To check the electric motor coolant level:

  1. Remove the relevant under-bonnet covers. See FLUID FILLER LOCATIONS and UNDER-BONNET COVERS REMOVAL.

  2. Check the electric motor coolant reservoir level. To achieve optimum benefit of the electric motor cooling system, keep the coolant system level at the MAX indicator mark on the expansion tank. Make sure the coolant level does not fall below the MIN indicator mark on the expansion tank.

NOTES

If the coolant level has dropped suddenly, or by a large amount, arrange for the vehicle to be examined by qualified personnel. Consult a retailer/authorised repairer as soon as possible.
