Tire condition inflation pressure

Tires constitute a safety element and they can only fulfill the demands made on them if the inflation pressure is correct and there is adequate tread depth.

The specified inflation pressures are minimum pressures; under no circumstances should the tire pressure be allowed to sink below these levels as this will not only detrimentally affect the driving behavior, but also increases the risk of serious tire damage.

Valve caps protect the valves from dust and dirt and therefore prevent leakage. Always screw caps on tightly and replace any that are missing.

For safety reasons, a tire-pressure check should always be accompanied by a visual inspection to ensure adequate tread depth and a check for objects piercing the tire, slits, cuts, cracks and bulges in the side wall (cord break).

Inflation pressure with the tires cold (summer and winter tires).

Front 2.5 bar

Rear 3.0 bar

Collapsible spare wheel front/rear 2.5 bar

Diagnosis system:

Read out the fault memory

The procedure for reading out the fault memory is described in the operating instructions for System Tester 9288. A copy of the operating instructions is supplied with each tester.

The System Tester 9288 is connected to the vehicle via a 19-pole socket outlet.

Also refer to repair group 03, self-diagnosis for operating instructions.

Maintenance

Replacing engine oil and filter

Precondition:

engine at operating temperature

1. Remove engine guard. Undo the drain plugs in the crankcase and thermostat housing and drain out the engine oil.

Drain plug - thermostat housing

2. Undo oil drain plug at oil filter console and drain remaining used oil into a suitable container.

3. Undo the oil filter with a standard clamping band, e.g. Hazet 2171 - 2. Catch any remaining oil.

4. Clean the drain plug. Always replace the sealing rings. Tightening torque for the drain plug on the crankcase 70 Nm (52 ftlb). Drain plug on the thermostat housing

65 Nm (48 ftlb) and oil filter console plug 31 Nm (23 ftlb).

5. Apply a light film of oil to the seal on the oil filter, install by hand, turning until the seal makes contact. Finally, tighten by a further approx. 1/2 turn.

6. Fill with approx. 6 liters of engine oil. Run the engine at idle and top up with approx. 3 liter. The oil-change volume amounts to approx. 9 liter. Only use approved engine oils. Refer to the Technical Information Handbook.

Check the oil level at operating temperature and at idle speed. Check the engine, oil reservoir, lines and front oil cooler for leaks (visual inspection)
