RECOVERY METHOD

CAUTION

Make sure that vehicle recovery or transportation is carried out by suitably qualified personnel and the vehicle is secured correctly. If the vehicle is not secured correctly, it may move or fall off, which may cause serious damage to the vehicle.

CAUTION

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

CAUTION

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

NOTES

The steering column cannot be unlocked with the battery disconnected.

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

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