Erasing all prog ramm ed button settingsBefore selling the vehic le, it is a good idea to erase b utton settings.

Button settings can only be era sed as a unit. I t is not p ossible to erase individual button settings. Buttons can, how ever, be indiv idua lly rep rogram med (see "Reprogramm ing ind iv idual button settings").

In order to erase the programming of all 3 buttons, press both outer buttons and relea se as soon as the LED begins to flash (a fter approx. 20 seconds). All button settings have now been cleared and can be prog ra mmed anew at any tim e.

NoteRetain the ma nual remote control in case reprog ra mming is required. It is also possible to continue using the manual remote control.

If a fter repeated ly performing the above steps a system fails to respond to the universal rad io control, consult a workshop. We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

During programm ing, the vehicle should be within the range of the receiver. Under no circumstances should the vehicle be in the movement zone of a system (e.g. garag e door).

Do not programm e systems which do not have an automatic safety stop (manufactured b efore 1982).

Notes on loading the vehiclez Heavy objec ts in the lug gage

com partment should be placed as far forward as possible aga inst the engag ed rear seat backrests or, if the rear seat backrests are folded down, against the front seat b ackrests. If objects a re to be stacked, the heav ier objects should be placed at the b ottom. Unsecured objec ts in the luggage compartment would be thrown forward with great force in the event of heavy braking, for exam ple.

z Secure heavy objec ts with lashing straps 3 atta ched to lashing eyes – see page 86. If heavy loads slip when the vehicle is braked heavily or driven around a bend, the handling of the vehicle may chang e.

z Saloon: loose objects in the lugg age com partment should be secured ag ainst slipping using a luggage net 3 – see pa ge 86.

z Estate: when transporting objects in the lugga ge compa rtm ent, fit a safety net 3 – see page 84, or FlexOrganizer 3 – see pa ge 86.

z Estate: close the luggage compa rtm ent cover so there is no reflection in the rea r wind ow.

z If objects are being transp orted in the luggage compa rtm ent, the rear sea t back rests m ust be locked in position – see page 82.

z Do not a llow the load to protrude ab ove the upp er edge of the rear seat back rests, or above the upper ed ge of the front seat b ackrests if the rear seat back rests a re folded down.

z The warning triangle 3 and first-aid kit 3 must always b e freely a ccessib le.

z Do not place any objec ts in front of the rear window or on the instrum ent panel. They a re reflected in the glass, obstruct the driver’s view and will be thrown through the vehicle, for instance in the event of heavy braking.

z Objects m ust not be stored in the a irb ag inflation area, because they could cause injury if the airbag inflates.

z Do not drive with the luggage compartment op en, e.g. when tra nsporting bulky ob jects, since toxic exhaust gas could p enetrate the interior.

z Weights, payload and roof loa d – see page 262.

z Driv ing with a roof load – see p ages 158, 161, 188, increases the sensitivity of the vehicle to cross-winds and has a detrimenta l effec t on vehicle handling owing to the vehicle’s higher centre of gravity.

Disregarding the instructions can potentially lead to fatal injury. Vehicle passeng ers should be inform ed accordingly.

Safety systems Three-stage restraint systemComprising:

z three-point seat belts,

z belt tensioners at the front seats and the rea r outer seats,

z airbag systems for driver, front passenger and outer rea r seats 3.

The three stag es are a ctivated in sequence depending on the seriousness of the accident:

z The automa tic seat belt locking devices prevent the belt strap from being pulled out and thus ensure that the vehicle occupants are retained in their seats.

z The front seat b elt buckles and outer rea r seats are pulled downwards. As a result, the seat belts are instanta neously tightened and the occupants are mad e aware of the deceleration of the vehicle at a very ea rly sta ge. This reduc es the stress p laced on the body.

z The airbag systems a re also triggered in the event of serious accidents and form a safety cushion for the occupants. Depending on the severity of the accident, the front a irb ags inflate in two stages.

Be sure to rea d the a ccompanying desc ription of the child restraint system !

The airbag systems serve to supp lement the three-point seat belts and belt tensioners. The seat belts must therefore always be worn. Disregard of these instructions may lea d to injuries or endanger life. Vehicle p assengers should be informed accordingly.

95

Seat belts In the event of an accident, persons not wearing sea t belts enda ng er their fellow oc cup ants and themselves.

Warning light X for the seat belt – see page 35.

Sea t belts are desig ned to be used by only one person at a time. They are not suitable for a nyone under 12 years of age or 150 cm.

For children up to 12 years of age we recommend the Vauxhall child restraint system – see page 110.

Three-point seat beltsThe vehicle is equipped with three-point seat belts with automatic retrac tors and locking d evices, allowing freedom of body movement although the spring-tensioned belts always ensure a snug fit. For seat position – see pages 69, 99.

The belt has a "vehicle sensitive retra ctor" which is designed to lock during hea vy acc eleration or deceleration in any direction.

Alwa ys wea r your seat belt, and that means also in urb an traffic and when you are a rear seat passenger. It can save your life!

Pregnant women m ust alwa ys wear a seat belt – see page 98.

96

Belt tens ionersThe front seat belt and outer rear seat systems are equipped with b elt tensioners. If a head-on or tail-end collision of a certa in severity occurs, the belt buckles are pulled downward and the shoulder and lap belts are tightened in an instant.

Actuation of belt tensionersis indicated by illum ina tion of control indica tor v, see next p age.

The belt tensioners must be replaced after activation. We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

If the seat belts are unda maged the op eration thereof is unaffected, even if the belt tensioners have been triggered.

Further inform ation – see page 99.

Control indic ator v for belt tensionersThe belt tensioners are monitored electronically together with the a irb ag systems and their operational rea diness is indicated on the instrument panel by control ind icator v . When the ignition is switched on, the c ontrol indicator lights up for approx. 4 seconds. If it does not light up, does not go off after 4 seconds, or lights up while d riv ing, there is fault in the belt tensioner system or the a irb ag system s – see page 105. The belt tensioners or airbag systems may fail to trigger in the event of an a ccident.

97

The system ’s integrated self-diagnostics allows faults to be quickly remedied. have Ca r Pass on hand when consulting a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

The c ontrol indicators can also be located in the tac hometer d isplay dial – see page 37.

Imp or tant

z Accessories and other objects must not be affixed or placed within the action zone of the belt tensioners a s this may result in injury if the belt tensioners are triggered.

z Do not make any modifications to the components of the belt tensioners, as this will render the vehicle unroad-worthy.

z The belt tensioner and airbag system control electronics can be found in the centre console area. In order to avoid malfunctions, do not store mag netic objects in this a rea.

z We recom mend that you have the front seats removed by a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

z The belt tensioners only actuate once. Please replace belt tensioners that have been triggered. We recom mend tha t you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

z Applicable safety directives must always be ob served when disposing of the vehicle. For this reason, d isposal should be performed by an authorised recycling company. We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Have the cause of the fault remedied . We recom mend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Rep airer.

Imp roper handling (e.g. removal or installation) can activate the belt tensioners – risk of injury .

98

Using the belts Fitting seat bel ts Pull the belt out of the retractor and guide it across the body, making certain that it is not twisted.

Insert the la tch plate into the buckle. The front sea t b ackrest must not be tilted back too far or the seat belt will not op erate properly . The recommended angle of inclina tion is 25° . Make sure that the lap belt is not twisted and that it fits snugly across the body. Tension the belt frequently while d riv ing by tugging the diagonal pa rt of the belt.

Bulky clothing prevents the belt from fitting prop erly. The belt must not rest against ha rd or fragile objects in the pockets of your clothing (e.g. ballpoint pens, keys, spectacles) because these could cause injury. Do not place any objec ts (e.g. ha ndb ags, mobile phones) b etween the belt and your body.

Height adjustm entof seat belt upper anchora ge p oint:

1. Pull b elt out slig htly.

2. Front seat b elts: Press button down or slide belt guide up.Rear seat belts: Press belt guide and slide it upwards or downwards.

3. Set desired height.

4. Allow anchorage to lock aud ibly into position.

Do not adjust height while driving .

On pregnant women in particular, the lap belt must be positioned as low as possible ac ross the pelv is so as not to put too much pressure on the abdomen.

99

Adjust height such that the belt p asses over the wearer’s shoulder and rests against the shoulder. It must not pass over the neck or upper arm.

Rem oving the b el tTo remove the belt, d epress the red pushbutton on the buckle; the b elt will retract automatically.

Three-point seat b el t on centre rear sea tThe belt can only be pulled out of the retractor if the ba ck seat rests are engaged in their retainers – see page 82.

Testing the beltsPlea se check all parts of the b elt system occasionally for dama ge a nd correct operation. H ave da maged parts replaced . In ca se of an accident, please replace overstretc hed belts and triggered belt tensioners. We recommend consulting a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Do not perform any altera tions on the belts, their anchorages, the automatic retrac tors or the belt buck les.

Make sure that b elts are not da maged or trapped by sharp-edged objec ts.

Vauxhall Full-Size airbag systemFront airb agThe front airbag system is identified by the word AIRBAG on the steering wheel and above the glove c om partment.

The front airbag system comprises:

z an airbag with inflator in the steering wheel and a second one in the instrum ent panel,

z the control elec tronics with impact sensor,

z the a irb ag system s control indicator v in the instrument panel,

z seat occupancy recognition 3 ,

z the control indica tor for Vauxhall child restraint systems y with transponders 3 in the instrument panel.

The front airb ag system will be trigg ered :

z depending on the severity of the accident,

z depending on the type of impact,

z within the range shown in the figure,

z indep endent of side airbag a nd curta in airbag system 3.

Exception: Passenger sea t with seat occupancy recognition system 3 . The seat occupancy recognition system deactiva tes the passenger front and side airbags if the passenger seat is unoccupied or a Vauxhall child restraint system with transponders 3 has been fitted to the passenger seat. Seat occupa ncy recognition – see page 105. Vauxhall child restraint system w ith transponders 3 – see page 110.

Examples of events triggering the front airbag system:

z Impact against a non-y ielding obstacle: the front airbags are trigg ered at low vehicle speed.

z Impact against a yield ing obstacle(such as another vehicle): the front airbags are only triggered at a hig her vehicle speed.

101

When trigg ered , the front airbags inflate in milliseconds to form a safety cushion for the d river and front passenger. The forward movement of the front seat occupants is c hecked, thereby sub stantially reducing the risk of injury to the upp er body and hea d.

No im pairment of view will occur, because the a irb ags inflate and deflate so quickly .

The front airbag system will not be triggered in the event of:z the ignition being switched off,z minor frontal collisions,z accidents in which the vehicle overturns,z collisions involving a sid e or rear impac t,that is to say, if it w ould not be of benefit to the oc cup ants.

The front airbag system provides optimum p rotection when the seat, back rest and head restra int are correctly adjusted: Adjust the driver’s seat according to the occupant’s height such that with the driver sitting upright the steering wheel is held in the a rea of its upper sp okes with the d river’s arms slightly bent. The front passenger’s sea t should b e as far b ack as possible, w ith the back rest upright – see pa ges 5, 6, 69. Do not place the head, b od y, hands or feet on the covers of the airbag systems.

Do not place any objects in the area in which the airb ags inflate. Im portant inform ation – see page 107.

The three-point seat belt must be correctly fitted – see page 98.

102

In addition, the front airb ag system will not be triggered for the front passenger in versions with seat occupancy recognition 3 if:

z the front passenger’s seat is unoccupied,

z there is a prop erly fitted Va uxha ll child restraint system with transponders 3 . Seat oc cup ancy recognition – see page 105. Vauxhall child restraint system with transponders 3 – see pa ge 110.

Side airb ag 3 The side a irb ag system is identified by the word AIRBAG on the outb oa rd sides of the front seat backrests.

The side a irb ag system c om prises:

z an airbag with infla tor in the back of the driver’s and front passenger’s seat respectively ,

z the control electronics,

z the side impact sensors,

z the airbag systems control ind icator v in the instrum ent panel,

z seat occ upa ncy rec og nition 3,

z the control indicator for Va uxha ll child restraint systems y with transponders 3 in the instrum ent panel.

The side airbag system will be triggered:

z depending on severity of the a ccident,

z depending on the type of im pact,

z within the range shown in the figure on the centre door pillar of the driver’s or front passenger side,

z ind epend ently of the front airbag system.

Exception: Passenger sea t with seat occupancy recognition system 3. Seat occupancy recognition system deactiva tes the passenger front and side airbags if the passenger seat is unoccupied or a Vauxhall child restraint system with transponders 3 has been fitted to the passenger seat. Seat occupa ncy recognition – see page 105. Vauxhall child restraint system with transponders 3 – see pag e 110.

Seat belts must therefore always be worn. The front airbag system serves to supplement the three-point seat belts. If you d o not wear your seat belt you risk being seriously injured, or even thrown from the vehic le, in the event of an accident.

In the event of an accident the belt helps to keep you in the correct seating position, so that the front airb ag system can provide you with effective protection.

103

When the side a irb ag is triggered it inflates within milliseconds and provides a safety barrier for the driver and/or pa ssenger in the v icinity of the relevant front door. This red uces the risk of injury to the upper body considerably in case of a side impact.

The side airba gs will not be triggered in the event of

z the ig nition being sw itched off,

z fronta l collisions,

z accidents in which the vehicle overturns,

z collisions involving a rear impac t,

z collisions involving a side imp act outside the passenger cell.

In addition, the side airbag system w ill not be triggered for the front passenger in versions with seat occupa ncy recognition 3 if

z the front p assenger’s sea t is unoccupied,

z there is a properly fitted Vauxhall child restraint system with transpond ers 3. Seat occupancy recognition – see page 105. Vauxhall child restraint system w ith transp onders 3 – see p age 110.

Cur tain ai rbag 3 The curtain a irba g system is identified by the word AIRBAG on the roof pillar trim.

The curtain a irba g system com prises

z an airbag w ith inflator in the roof frame on the d river’s and front passenger’s side respectively,

z the control electronics,

z the side im pact sensors,

z the airbag systems control indicator v in the instrument panel.

There must be no objects in the area in which the airb ag inflates or in the a rea between the seat backs and the vehicle body. Do not place the hands or arms on the covers of the airba g systems. Imp ortant information – see page 107.

The three-p oint seat b elt m ust always b e correctly fitted – see page 98.

104

The curtain airbag system will be trigg ered

z depending on the severity of the accident,

z depending on the typ e of impa ct,

z within the rang e shown in the figure on the centre door pillar of the d river’s or front passenger side,

z together with the side airbag system,

z irrespective of seat occupancy recognition,

z independently of the front airbag system .

When the curtain airbag is triggered it inflates w ithin milliseconds and provides a safety barrier in the hea d area on the respective side of the vehicle. This reduces the risk of injury to the head considerably in case of a side impact.

The curtain airbags will not b e triggered in the event of

z the ignition being switched off,

z frontal collisions,

z accidents in which the vehicle overturns,

z collisions involving a rear impact,

z collisions involving a side impact outside the passenger cell.

There m ust be no objec ts in the area in which the airbag inflates. Do not place the hands or arms on the covers of the airbag systems. Important information – see page 107.

The three-point seat belt must always be correctly fitted – see pag e 98.

105

Control indica tor v for airb ag systemsThe front airbag system , the side airbag system 3 and the curtain airbag system 3 are monitored electronically together with seat occupancy recognition 3 and the belt tensioners. Their opera tional readiness is shown b y control ind icator v in the instrument panel. When the ignition is switched on, the control indic ator lights up for approx. 4 seconds. If it does not light up, d oes not go out after 4 seconds or lights up while driving, there is a fault in the airbag systems, seat occupancy recognition 3 or the belt tensioners – see page 96. The system s m ay fail to trigg er in the event of an accident.

The system’s integ ra ted self-diagnostics allow s faults to be quickly remedied. have Car Pass on ha nd when consulting a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

The control indica tors can a lso be located in the tachometer display dial – see page 37.

Seat occupancy recognition 3The seat occupancy recognition system deactivates the front a nd side airbag s for the front passenger if the front passenger seat is not occupied or a Vauxhall child restraint system w ith transponders 3 is fitted on the front passenger seat. The curtain airb ag system 3 remains activated .

The control indicator for seat occupancy recognition is located in the instrument panel. If this control indicator lights up for app rox . 4 seconds after the ignition is switched on, the vehicle is equip ped with seat oc cup anc y recog nition – see next pag e, Fig. 13068 J .

If a Vauxha ll child restraint system with transponders 3 is installed, this warning light remains on after the ignition has been switched on a s soon as the system ha s detected the seat. Only then can the child restraint system be used on the pa ssenger seat.

Have the cause of the fa ult remedied. We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised R epairer.

106

Vehicles with seat oc cup anc y recog nition can be identified by the sticker on the side of the instrum ent panel, which is visib le when the driver’s door is open.

Vauxhall child restraint system s w ith trans-ponders 3 are a utomatica lly detected if correctly fitted to the front pa ssenger sea t. When these child restraint system s are being used on the front passenger seat, the front a nd side airbag systems for the front passenger seat are deac tivated. The curtain airbag system rema ins activa ted. Pay attention to seat occupancy recognition 3 c ontrol indicator – see page 106.

Seat occupancy recognition in a vehicle is indicated by the control indica tor in the courtesy light. I f this control indicator lig hts for approx. 4 seconds when the ignition is switched on, it indica tes that the vehicle is equipp ed with seat occupancy rec ognition – see pa ge 105.

Seat occupancy recognition in a vehicle is also indicated by a sticker on the side of the instrum ent panel, visible when the driver’s door is open – see previous page, Fig. 12106 A.

The seat occupancy recognition system detects Vauxhall child restraint systems with transponders 3 and switches off the front a nd side airbag systems for the front passenger’s sea t. The curtain airbag system rem ains activated. Seat occ upa ncy recognition – see pa ge 105.

Vauxhall c hild restraint system s w ith tra nsponders 3 can be identified by the sticker on the child restraint system.

Child restraint systems 3 The Vauxhall c hild restraint system is designed specifically for your vehicle and thus provides op tim um safety for your child in the event of impact. If a different child safety seat is used, follow the ma nufacturers’ instructions for fitting and use.

Selecting the right systemYour child should be transported facing bac kwards in the car as long a s possible. It is appropriate to change the system when the child’s head can no longer be properly supported a t eye heig ht. The child’s cervical vertebrae are still very weak and in an ac cident they suffer less stress in the sem i-p rone backwards position than when sitting up right.

Cooling 3 functions most effic iently when the w indows and sun roof 3 are closed. I f the p assenger compartment has heated up consid erably after a long period in direc t sunlight, briefly open the windows and sun roof 3 so that the hot air can escape quickly .

When cooling 3 (air c onditioning compressor) is switched on condensation forms, which is expelled from the underside of the vehicle.

At lea st one air vent must b e open while cooling 3 (air conditioning compressor) is on in order to prevent the evaporator from icing up due to lack of air movement.

When the auxiliary heating 3 is switched on there m ay briefly be som e smoke and noise.

When the auxiliary heating / auxiliary ventilation 3 is switched on the anti-theft alarm system monitoring of the vehicle interior 3 is dea ctivated.

Aux iliary hea ting 3 consumes fuel (approx. 0.3 litres p er hea ting proc ess on a verage).

Aux iliary heating 3 will only switch on if coolant temperature is less tha n approx. 80 °C.

In order to im prove heating power and ensure that the engine operating temperature is rea ched quickly , auxiliary heating 3 also switches on automatically when driving if the outside temp erature is less than ap prox . 8 °C. This occurs irresp ective of stored auxiliary heating switch-on tim es. Aux iliary heating switches itself off automatically when the engine is switched off, while the combustion air fa n continues running for ap prox . 2 minutes (humming noise).

MaintenanceIn order to ensure consistently efficient performa nc e, the cooling system 3 must be switched on for a few m inutes once a month regardless of the weather or season. Operation with cooling 3 (cooling compressor) is not possible a t low outside temperatures. Aux ilia ry heating 3 should be run for a few minutes every 6 months at a pre-selected temperature over 22 °C.

In the event of a fault, consult a workshop . We recommend a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Automatic transmission 3

The automatic transmission allows you to cha ng e gears autom atically (autom atic mode) or manually (m anual mod e).

Selecting D puts the transmission in autom atic mode. If the selector lever is moved to the left in the D position, ma nual mode is ac tivated, and the gears can be selected manually by tapp ing the selector lever forw ard or backward.

After sta rting the engine and before shifting into a gea r, depress the brake pedal, If the brakes are released w hen a gear is engaged , the vehicle will "creep". Never ac tuate accelerator and b rake pedals simultaneously .

Selector lever in P, R, N and D(Automatic mode)P Park. Front wheels loc ked.

Only with vehic le stationa ry andhandbrake on.

R Reverse. Only engage whenvehicle stationary.

N Neutral.

D Drive position for normal drivingconditions in first to fifth gear.

Disregard of these instructions may lead to injuries or endanger life.

145

The selector lever ca n only b e moved out of P or N when the ig nition is switched on and the foot brake is depressed (selector lever lock).

In positions P or N the control indica tor j in the selector lever indica tor strip will light up red – see figure.

CVTronic 3

CVTronic is an autom atic transmission with the following facilities:

z Continuously va riable autom atic m od e,

z Out of c ontinuously variable a utomat ic mode,

z Manual m ode.

In continuously variable automatic mode the transm ission ra tio is continuously variable. The engine speed is in the op tim um torque range. Moving the selector lever from N to D puts the tra nsmission into this m od e.

When op erating out of continuously variable autom atic mode, the CVTronic electronically simulates the shifting of a conventional autom atic transmission w ith defined gears. This mode is selected by moving the selec tor lever from D to the left.

Gears can be selected manually in manual mode. H ig her or lower tra nsmission ratios are manually selected by moving the selector lever from D to the left and tapping towa rd + or -.

After starting the engine, op erate the brake before selecting a mode. If a mode is selected and the b ra ke is released, the vehicle "creeps" . Never operate the acc elerator and brake ped als simultaneously.

Disregard of these instructions ma y lead to injuries or endanger life.

Driving hints

The first 600 miles / 1000 kmDrive your vehicle at various speeds. Do not use full throttle. Never allow the eng ine to labour at low revs.

Make good use of all gea rs. Depress the accelerator pedal a maximum of around three quarters of the ava ila ble ped al travel in all gears.

Do not drive faster than three quarters of max imum speed.

Do not brake unnecessarily hard for the first 125 miles (200 km ).

Never coast with engine not runningMany units w ill not function in this situation (e.g. brake servo unit, e lectro-hydraulic power steering). Driving in this ma nner is a danger to yourself a nd others.

Brake servo unitWhen the engine is not running, the brake servo unit is no longer effective once the brake peda l has been depressed once or twice. Braking effect is not reduced , but braking requires significantly grea ter force.

Electro-hydraulic power ass isted steeringIf the power-assisted steering fails when being towed with the engine switched off, the vehicle can still be steered, but considera bly more forc e is req uired.

Driving in mountainous terrain or with a caravan / trailerThe cooling fan is electrically operated. Its cooling p ow er is therefore independent of the engine speed.

Since a considerable amount of heat is genera ted at high engine speeds and less at slower speeds, do not shift d ow n when climbing hills whilst the vehicle is still coping with the gradient in the higher g ear.

Diesel engine: On rising gradients of 10 % or more, do not drive faster than 20 mph (30 km/h) in 1st gea r, 30 m ph (50 km /h) in 2nd gear; with autom atic transmission 3 in gear 1 and with CVTronic 3 in m anual mode in transm ission ratio 1, do not exceed 25 mph (40 km/h).

Driving with a roof loadDo not exceed the perm issible roof load – see pages 188, 263. For reasons of safety, distribute the loa d evenly a nd secure it properly with reta ining straps so that it cannot slip . Set the ty re p ressure to the va lue sp ecified for a full load. Do not drive faster than 75 m ph (120 km/h). Check and retig hten the straps frequently.

Switching off the engineWhen you switch off, fans in the eng ine compa rtm ent may continue running for a time to cool the engine.

If the engine temperature is very high, e.g. after driving in mountainous terrain: allow the engine to id le for approx im ately two minutes in order to prevent heat acc um ulation.

Vehicles with engine Z 20 N ET1):After running at high eng ine speeds or high eng ine loads, op erate the engine briefly at a low load or run in neutral for approx. 30 seconds before switching off in ord er to protec t the turbocharger.

Save energy – more milesPlease observe the running-in hints on the previous pag e and the tips for energ y saving on the following pages.

Good, technica lly correct and economical driving ensures ma ximum durability and performance for your vehic le.

Overrun 3 The fuel supply is autom atically shut off during overrun, e.g. when the vehicle is being driven down long gradients or when braking. To enable the overrun cut-off to take effect, do not acc elerate during overrun and, if in manual transm ission mode, do not de-clutch. To prevent dam age to the cata lytic converter, overrun cut-off is temp orarily deactivated when the catalytic converter temperature is high.

Vehicles w ith engine Z 20 N ET1):Flow -g enerated noises may be aud ible if the a ccelerator is released quickly on account of air flow in the turbocharger.

Engine speedDrive in a low engine speed range for each gear a s m uc h as possible.

Warming upAllow the engine to warm up while driving. Do not warm it up by letting it run at idling speed. Do not apply full throttle until the engine has reached op erating temperature.

After a cold start, the automatic tra nsmission or CVTronic does not shift to higher gears until faster speeds have been reached . This allows the catalytic converter to quic kly reach the temperature req uired for optimum pollutant reduction.

Correct gear selectionEngine in neutral a nd without revving in the low er gears. Stop-and-go traffic and driving a t a speed too high for the selected gear or transmission ratio increases wear and fuel consum ption.

Change downWhen decreasing speed, shift down into the next lowest gear. Do not slip the clutch with a high-revving engine. This is especially important when hill climb ing.

Clutch operationAlways d epress the c lutch pedal hard to the floor to p revent shifting difficulties and transmission damage.

When driving do not use the pedal as a footrest; this will cause sub stantial clutch wear.

PedalsDo not place any ob jects in the footwell which could slip under the ped als and inhibit the pedal travel.

To ensure the pedal travel is uninhibited, there must be no mats in the area of the pedals.

Battery careWhen driving slowly or when the vehicle is sta tionary, e.g. in slow urban traffic , stop-start traffic or traffic jams, turn off all unnecessary electric al loads where possible (e.g. heated rear window, heated seats).

Declutch w hen sta rting in order to relieve the strain on the starter and the ba ttery.

Save fuel, protect the environment

Trend-setting technologyWhen developing and manufac turing your vehic le, Vauxhall used environment-friendly and in the m ain recyc la ble materials. The production methods used to make your vehicle are likewise env ironmenta lly -compatible.

Recycling of production wastes keeps the circulation of material closed. Reduction of energy a nd water requirements a lso help s to conserve natural resources.

A highly advanced design mea ns that your vehic le can be easily disassembled at the end of its working life, and the individual materials separated for subsequent re-use.

Materia ls such as asbestos and cadmium are not used . The refrigerant in the air conditioning system 3 is CFC-free.

New painting techniques employ wa ter as a solvent.

End-of-life vehicle recovery Information on end-of-life vehicle recovery centres and the recycling of end-of-life vehicles is availab le at ww w.vauxhall.co.uk

Drive in an energy andenvironment-conscious wayz High fuel consumption, noise levels and

exhaust emission are often caused b y a driving style that is not energy and env ironment-c onscious.

z You should therefore drive with energy in mind – "more miles with less fuel" .

Reduce the noise level and exhaust emissions b y adopting an environment-consc ious driving style. This is extremely worthwhile and im proves the quality of life.

Fuel consumption depends to a great extent on your own personal driving style. The follow ing hints are intended to help you consume fuel at a rate that is as close as possible to the specified levels – see page 260, 261.

Check your vehic le’s fuel consum ption every time you refuel. This facilita tes early detection of a ny irregularities causing increased fuel consumption.

Warming upz Full throttle and w arming up at idle

speed increase w ear, fuel consumption, exhaust em ission, the am ount of pollutant in the exhaust and the am ount of noise.

z Drive off imm ediately after starting. Wa rm up the engine b y running it at moderate eng ine speeds.

Uniform speedz Hectic driving significantly increases fuel

consumption, the exhaust emissions, the proportion of pollutant in the exhaust gas and the noise level.

z Do not accelerate a nd brake unnecessarily . Drive at uniform speed.

Avoid frequent starting off and stopping e.g . at traffic lights, in short distance tra ffic and in queues of traffic by m eans of clever planning . Select road s w ith good traffic flow .

Idlingz The eng ine also consumes fuel when

idling .

z If you have to wait for more than one minute, it is worthwhile switching off the engine. Five m inutes of idling corresponds to ap prox imately 0.6 miles (1 k ilom etre) of d riv ing.

161

Overrunz The fuel supply is automatically shut off

during overrun, e.g. when the vehicle is being driven down long gradients or when braking – see page 159.

z To enable the overrun cut-off to take effect a nd save fuel, during overrun do not ac celera te and do not declutch.

Correct gear selectionz High revs increase engine w ear and fuel

consumption.

z Do not race your engine. Avoid d riv ing at high engine speeds.

Driv ing with an eye on the tachom eter saves fuel. I f possib le, drive a t low revs in each gear and a t a consta nt speed. Drive in top g ear as m uch a s p ossible, shift up as soon as possib le and do not shift down until the engine is no longer running truly .

High speedz The faster the speed, the higher the

consumption and the noise level. Driving at full throttle uses up a g reat deal of fuel and generates excessive noise a nd hig h emission levels.

z Slightly relea sing the accelerator ped al results in distinct fuel savings with no major loss of speed.

Drive at no more tha n around three quarters of max imum speed and you will use up to 50 % less fuel, without losing a great deal of time.

Tyre inflation pressurez Inadequate ty re p ressure, leading to

higher road resistance, costs m oney in two wa ys: for more fuel and increased tyre wear.

z Regular checks (every 14 d ays) pay off.

Electrical loadsz The power consum ption of electrical

equip ment increa ses fuel consumption.

z Sw itch off additional consumers (e.g. air conditioning 3, hea ted rear window) when they are no longer required.

Roof racks, ski-holdersz Roof loads can increase fuel

consump tion by approx. 3.5 gal./1000 miles (1l/100 km) due to air resistanc e.

z Remove them if they are not being used.

Repair and maintenancez Improper repairs or adjustm ent and

maintenance work can increase fuel consumption. Do not carry out w ork on the eng ine yourself.

You may out of ignorance infringe environmental law s b y not disposing of materials properly.

Appropriate parts m ight not be rec ycled .

Contact with some of the materia ls involved may p ose a hea lth haz ard.

z We recom mend that repair and maintenance be entrusted to a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Extreme driving conditionsz Driv ing up steep gradients, cornering,

driving on poor roads and winter driving all increase fuel consumption.

Fuel consumption increa ses dramatically in urba n tra ffic a nd at winter temperatures, especially on short trip s when the engine operating tempera ture is not reached.

z Follow the hints given above to keep consumption to a m inimum under suc h cond itions.

162

Fuel consumption, fuel, refuelling

Fuel consumptionFuel consumption is determined under specific driving conditions – see page 260.

Fitting special equipment will increase the weight of the vehicle. This in turn increases fuel consumption and reduces the specified m aximum speed of the vehicle.

For the first few thousand miles / kilometres, friction between the engine and tra nsmission components is higher. This increases fuel consum ption.

Fuel for petrol enginesCom mercially availab le high-quality fuels are suitable (catalytic converter – see pag e 164, octane numbers – see pag es 256, 257). Fuel quality has a d ecisive influence on the power output, running behaviour and service life of the engine. The ad ditives conta ined in the fuel play an important role in this reg ard. You should therefore only use high-quality fuels containing additives.

Fuel with too low an octane number can cause pink ing. Va uxhall cannot be held liable for resulting damage.

Petrol with a hig her octane number can always be used .

The use of 91 octane fuel is not permitted in vehicles with engine Z 22 YH1).

Pump nozzles for leaded fuel ca nnot be inserted into the filler nec k of vehicles tha t operate on unlead ed fuel.

The ignition timing adjusts automatically to the grade of fuel used (octane number) – see pages 256, 257.

Use of petrol with an octane rating of 95 will ensure economical driv ing.

1) Sales des ignation – see page 256.

163

Fuel for diesel enginesDiesel engines must be operated only on commercially ava ila ble diesel fuel meeting the specific ations of DIN EN 590. Do not use ma rine diesel oils, heating oils or entirely or partially plant-b ased diesel fuels, such as rape seed oil or b io diesel, Aquazole and sim ilar diesel-w ater emulsions.

The flow a nd filterability of diesel fuel are tem perature-d epend ent.

Diesel fuels with improved low-tem perature properties are therefore ava ilab le on the market during the winter months. Make sure that you fill the tank with winter fuel before the start of the cold weather season.

Additives can be used with d iesel fuels with winter p roperties that are guaranteed by the m anufacturer and when using diesel fuel filters that are heated depending on the outside temperature.

Refuelling

The fuel tank filler neck is located on the rig ht, rear side of the vehicle.

The tank flap is locked together with the doors – see page 58.

Open the tank flap .

Unscrew fuel filler c ap to open, remove and suspend from tank fla p.

The fuel tank has a limiting system which prevents overfilling of the tank.

Correct filling depends to a large extent on proper operation of the fuel disp ensing pump:

1. Fully insert the pump nozz le and switch it on.

2. After the automatic cut-off, the nominal capacity of the tank ca n be obtained by top ping up with two doses of fuel. Make sure the nozzle is fully inserted.

To close, position the fuel filler cap a nd rotate until the cap audibly clicks over the reta iner.

C lose fuel tank cover.

Wipe off a ny overflowing fuel immediately .

Care must be ta ken when handling fuel.

Before refuelling, it is absolutely vital to switch off the engine and any heating systems with combustion cha mbers. Sw itch off all mobile phones.

Petrol is flamma ble and exp losive. Please therefore avoid naked flames and sparks when ha ndling fuel, even when you are in the vicinity of fuel. Do not smoke! This also applies in places where petrol can only be detected by its characteristic smell. If you ca n smell petrol in the vehicle, have cause thereof rem edied imm ediately. We recomm end that you consult a Va uxhall Authorised Repairer.

Catalytic converter, exhaust gases

Catalytic converter for petrol engines 3Leaded fuel will da mage the cata lytic converter and parts of the electronic system, rend ering them inoperative.

Use of high-qua lity fuels other than those specified on p age 162 (e.g. LR P1)) could damage the catalytic converter.

On vehicles with a c atalytic converter, the fuel ta nk filler nec k is of a narrow design so that a dispensing pump for leaded fuel cannot b e inserted .

Dama ge to the catalytic converter or the vehicle m ay result if the following points are not observed :

z If the engine misfires or runs roughly after a cold start, the engine power has reduced significantly or other unusua l operating problems occur that indicate a fault in the ignition system , please contac t a workshop as quickly a s possible. We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. Drive a t a slower speed a nd with less engine revs for a short tim e if necessa ry .

Irregular engine running a nd a loss of engine power when the Traction Control system 3 or the Electronic Stability Program me 3 come into action are determined b y the op erating conditions and are therefore of no significance – see pages 168, 170.

z If unb urnt fuel enters the c atalytic converter, this may result in overheating and irreparable damage to the c atalytic converter.

You should therefore avoid unnecessarily long use of the starter when starting off, running the tank dry (an irregular fuel supply w ill lead to overhea ting) and starting the engine by pushing or towing.

Catalytic converter for diesel engines 3Damage to the ca talytic converter or the vehicle may result if the follow ing points are not observed:

z If the engine runs roug hly , the engine power ha s reduc ed significa ntly or other unusual operating problems occur, please contact a workshop as quickly a s possible. We recomm end that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. Drive at a slower speed and with less eng ine revs for a short time if necessary.

Irregular engine running and a loss of eng ine power when the Traction Control system 3 or the Electronic S ta bility Programme 3 com e into action are determined by the opera ting conditions and are therefore of no significance – see pages 168, 170.

Controlling exhaust emissionThroug h design-rela ted measures – mainly in the a rea of the fuel-injection and ignition systems – the proportion of nox ious ma terials in the exhaust, such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC) a nd nitrogen oxides (NOx), is reduced to a minimum.

166

Control indica tor Z for exhaust Lights up when ignition is switched on a nd rem ains illuminated during starting. Goes out shortly a fter engine starts.

If it lights while the engine is running there is a fault in the emission control system. The p ermitted em ission values may be exceeded. Consult a workshop immedi-ately . We recomm end a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Flashing with the engine running indicates a fault that may damage the catalytic converter. You can continue to drive without causing damage by slowing down until the fla shing stop s and the control indica tor is stead y. Consult a workshop immed iately. We recommend tha t you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Control ind icator A for engine elect ronics (w ithin tachometer display dial) If it lights w hen the engine is running , there is a fault in engine or transmission electronics. The electronic system switches to an emergency running programme. Fuel consumption may be increased a nd the driveab ility of the vehicle may be impaired.

In some cases the fault can be eliminated by sw itc hing the engine off and back on aga in. If the c ontrol indicator lights up aga in when the engine is running, consult a workshop to have the cause of the fault remedied. We recom mend a Va uxha ll Authorised Repa irer.

If it lights b riefly, but does not rec ur, it is of no significance.

Flashing with the ignition switched on indicates a fault in the immobiliser system. The engine c annot be started – see pag e 55.

167

Exhaust gases

When the vehicle is driven for the first time, wax and oil on the exhaust system ma y evaporate, producing sm oke-like emissions. Allow wax and oil to eva pora te while the vehic le is in open a ir. Avoid inhaling.

MaintenanceHave all maintena nce work c arried out at the intervals spec ified by Va uxha ll. We recommend that you entrust this work to a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, w ho has prop er equipment a nd trained personnel available. E lectronic testing systems permit ra pid diagnosis and remedy of faults. This way you can be certain that all components of the vehic le’s electrical, injection and ignition system s operate correctly, that your vehicle has a low level of polluta nt em ission and tha t the catalytic converter system will have a long serv ice life.

You are thereby making an im portant contribution towards keeping the air clean and c om pliance w ith emissions legislation.

Checking and adjustment of the fuel-injection and ignition systems is part of the scope of inspec tion. For this reason you should have a ll maintenance work carried out a t the intervals specified in your Serv ice Booklet.

Engine exhaust ga ses contain poisonous carbon monox ide, which is colourless and odourless and could be fatal if inhaled.

If exhaust fumes penetrate the vehicle interior, open the windows and c onsult a workshop imm ediately. We recomm end that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Drive control systems Traction Control system (TCPlus) 3TCPlus p revents the driving wheels from spinning, irrespective of the road conditions and tyre grip.

The system m onitors the rotational sp eed of all wheels. As soon as at lea st one driving wheel sta rts to spin, the engine output is reduced (the sound of the engine cha ng es) and the spinning wheel is b ra ked. This improves the vehicle’s directional control and d riv ing power, particularly on snow and ic e as well as on wet or slippery road s.

TCPlus is ready for operation as soon as the ignition is switched on and the c ontrol indicator v goes out.

When the TCPlus comes into ac tion, v flashes.

The vehicle is now in a critical situa tion; TCPlus allows you to keep control of the vehicle a nd reminds you to ad apt your speed to the road conditions.

Do not let this special safety feature tempt you into taking risks when driving.

Tra ffic safety can only b e ac hieved by adopting a responsible d riv ing sty le.

Electronic StabilityProgram me (ESPPlus) 3 ESPPlus imp roves driving stability when necessary, irrespective of the road surface and the ty re grip in all d riv ing situations. I t also contains the functions provided by the Traction Control system.

The system monitors vehicle m ovements. As soon as the vehicle starts to swerve (und ersteers / oversteers) engine output is red uced (the sound of the engine changes) and individual wheels are specifically braked. This considerably im proves the driving stability of the vehicle on snow and ice and on wet or slipp ery road surfaces.

ESPPlus is read y for op eration as soon as the ignition is switc hed on and c ontrol indica tor v goes out.

When the ESPPlus comes into action, v flashes.

The vehic le is now in a critical situation; ESPPlus allows you to keep c ontrol of the vehicle and remind s you to adapt your speed to the road c onditions.

Switching off 3ESPPlus can be deactivated by pressing button v 3.

Deactivation is only possible up to a speed of 40 mph (60 km/h) and is ind icated by illumination of control indica tor v on the instrument panel.

ESPPlus is reactivated by pressing button v again or the next time the ignition is switched on.

172

Cruise control 3 Cruise control can store and maintain speeds from approx. 20 to 125 mph (30 to 200 km /h).

For safety reasons, the c ruise c ontrol cannot be activated until the foot brake has been activated once.

Cruise control is operated with buttons m , g, and § on the turn signal stalk.

Do not use the c ruise control if it is not adv isable to maintain a c onstant sp eed (e.g. in situations presenting a danger to yourself and other road users, in heavy traffic or on winding , slippery or greasy roads).

With automatic transmission or CVTronic, it is ad visab le to only use the cruise control in D gear or continuously variable a utoma tic mode.

When the cruise control is active, reaction times may be increased due to the different position of the feet.

Control ind icator m Lights up for a few seconds when ignition is switched on. The system is now ready for op eration.

When driving, the control indicator m will lig ht up as soon as the system is switched on.

To act ivate:Tap button m : the current sp eed is stored and m ainta ined. The accelerator pedal can b e released .

Vehicle speed can be increased by depressing the accelerator pedal. When the accelerator ped al is relea sed, the previously stored sp eed is resum ed.

Inc rea seWith cruise control a ctive, hold down button m or tap it repeatedly: speed is increa sed continuously or in steps of1.2 mph (2 km /h) without using the acc elerator pedal.

When button m is released the current speed is stored and maintained.

Disreg ard of these instructions may lead to injuries or end ang er life.

173

Decelera teWith cruise control active, press button g or tap it repeatedly: speed is reduced continuously or in steps of 1.2 mph (2 km/h).

When button g is released the current speed is stored and m aintained.

To dea ctivate:Ta p button § : cruise control is switched off, control indicator m goes out and the vehicle slowly dec elera tes. To continue driving, depress the accelerator pedal in the usual manner.

For reasons of safety, c ruise control switches off automatically under certa in driving conditions.For example:

z the vehicle’s speed drops belowapprox . 20 mph (30 km/h) or

z the brake peda l is depressed or

z the clutch p edal is depressed or

z automatic transmission or CVTronic selector lever in N.

Resuming the stored speedTap button g at a speed above 20 m ph (30 km/h): the speed selected before the cruise control w as switched off is resumed.

The stored speed is erased when the ignition is switched off.

174

Parking distance sensors 3 The p arking dista nce sensors m akes reverse p arking easier by m easuring the distance b etween the vehicle and an obstacle, and giving an acoustic signal in the p assenger compartment.

The system registers distance b y means of four sensors in each of the front and rear bumpers.

To act ivate:With the ignition switched on and in vehicles with automatic transmission or CVTronic, the front and rear parking distance sensors are a utomatically ena bled when reverse gear is selected or the selector lever is moved to the R position.

The parking distance sensors c an also be activa ted a t speed s of less than 15 mph (25 km/h) by pressing the r button on the instrument panel.

The functional read iness of the system is indicated by the LED in the button lighting up.

175

If the vehicle approaches a n ob stacle to the front or rea r, a series of signals is sounded in the vehicle interior. The interval between the signals becomes shorter a s the d istance is reduced. If the dista nce is less than 30 cm , the signal will b e continuous.

To deactivate:To d eactiva te the system, press button r again, the LED in the button w ill go dark.

The system switches itself off autom atically when the forwards speed exceeds approx. 15 mph (25 km/h).

Control ind icator r If it lights upFault in the system. The system is not ready for operation. Have the fault remedied. We recommend that you consult a Va uxha ll Authorised Repairer. The system’s integrated self-diag nostics a llows faults to be q uick ly remedied.

If it flashesThe fault is d ue to sensors obstructed with snow or ice. The sensors must be undam aged a nd free of d irt, snow and ic e.

Interference due to external sources of ultra sound (e.g . pneum atic drills, rota ry machines). Once the source of interference is removed, the system will operate normally .

Carava n / trailer tow ing equipm ent 3, ca ravan / t railer tow ingThe system automatically detects if a towbar is fitted to the vehicle.

When towing, inserting the tra iler plug in the socket automatically switches off the park ing distance sensors.

Fitting rear load racks 3 Rear load racks, e.g . bicycle racks, fitted nea r the sensors could disrupt the system .

Und er certain circum stances, various reflective surfaces on objects or clothing as w ell as external noise sourc es may cause the system to fail to detect ob stacles. For this reason, care must be ta ken when reversing even if the park ing distance sensors are op erational. This is of p artic ular im porta nce when in the vicinity of ped estria ns.

176

Tyre pressure control system 3The tyre pressure c ontrol system continuously monitors the pressure in all four ty res whilst the vehic le is b eing driven.

Ea ch wheel is fitted with a pressure sensor. Information on indiv id ua l tyre pressures is sent to a c ontrol unit and the p ressures of the ty res on the same axle are compared. If the system detects one or m ore differences in tyre pressure, the ty res affected will be show n in the tachometer display. On vehicles with chec k control 3, the p ressure in the respective ty re w ill be accurately shown in the informa tion display.

In order for the system to b e operable, all wheels must b e equipped with pressure sensors and the tyres m ust be filled to the correct pressure. The ty re pressure control system detects automatically if the vehicle is driven with a tyre pressure correct for a load of up to 3 persons or for a full load.

Once the ignition is switched on, the system is operational and w ill continuously monitor the tyre pressures at speeds of approx. 20 m ph (30 km /h) and a bove.

Tyre p ressures – see pages 184, 268.

Genera l informa tionThe spare wheel is not fitted with a pressure sensor. When the spare wheel is fitted, the tyre pressure control system will not operate on this w heel, and the c ontrol indicator w will light up. The system rem ains operational for the other three wheels.

If a complete set of wheels not fitted with sensors for the tyre pressure control system is used, e.g. four w heels with winter ty res, or if retro-fitting a different size of tyre, no fault report will b e displayed. The system will not be operational. Sensors for the tyre pressure control system can b e fitted retrospectively if so desired. We recom mend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Vehicles with the tyre pressure control system can be recognised by metal ty re valve stems with aluminium valve cap s instead of conventiona l rubb er shafts with plastic valve caps. When m anually checking ty re pressure w ith p ressure gauge, screw ada pter to valve. Tyre pressure – see page 184.

The tyre pressure monitoring system valve cores and sealing rings must be replaced each time the tyres are changed. We recommend that you contact a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

The use of liquid filled run-flat systems or repair kits can impair the functioning of the system.

179

Autom atic Level Control System3 The Automa tic Level Control System a llows the vehicle height to be kept practically constant thus significantly imp rov ing the handling when the rear of the vehicle is sub jected to varying loads – such as when towing a ca ravan / trailer.

During travel, the vehicle is automatically ra ised at the rear, increasing the spring tra vel a nd ground clearance.

The Autom atic Level Control System is activated after ap prox . 2 miles (3 k ilometres), depending on the vehicle loa ding and the nature of the road surface.

Head lig ht range adjustment – see page 117.

In the event of m alfunctions, do not utilise the vehicle’s full load capa city. H ave the cause rem edied without delay . We recommend that you consult a Va uxha ll Authorised Repairer.

180

Brakes

Brake systemThe effectiveness of the brakes is a n important factor for traffic safety.

To improve effectiveness, do not b ra ke unnecessarily hard for the first 125 miles (200 km) after new brake pads have been fitted.

Brake pad wear must not exceed a specified limit. Regular maintenance as detailed in the Service Book let is therefore of the utmost importance for traffic safety.

Control ind icator F for brake pad w ea rIf it lights when the engine is running : front disc brake pads worn down to minimum thickness.

Have worn brake pads replaced. We recommend that you consult a Va uxha ll Authorised Repairer, who will fit pads that ha ve b een tested a nd approved by Vauxhall and guarantee optimum braking power.

Foot bra ke The foot brake comprises two independent brake circuits.

If a brake circuit fails, the vehicle can still be braked using the other brake circuit. If this occurs, however, the brake pedal must be depressed q uite far using considerab le force before braking effect occurs. The distance required for b ra king will be greater. Consult a workshop before continuing your journey. We recommend a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

181

To ensure that full pedal travel can be utilised, especially if there is a fault in one of the brake circuits, there must b e no mats in the p edal area.

When the engine is not running, the assistance of the brake servo unit disappears once the brake ped al has been depressed once or twice. Braking effect is not reduced, b ut b ra king requires significantly greater force. This is especially important to bear in mind when towing.

Check the brake lights b efore starting out on a journey. On vehicles with check control 3 the brake lights are checked automatically – see page 46.

Shortly after starting each journey the effectiveness of the b ra ke system should be tested at low speed and without inconveniencing other tra ffic, especia lly if the b ra kes are wet, e.g. after the vehicle has been washed.

The b ra ke fluid level should be checked reg ularly . If the brake fluid level is too low and the hand brake is not ap plied, control indicator R on the instrum ent panel lights up – see page 34.

Handbra keAlw ays apply handb ra ke firmly . On slopes apply the handb ra ke as firmly as possible.

The mechanic al handbrake acts on the brakes on the rear wheels. It engages autom atic ally when applied.

To release the handbrake pull the lever up slightly, press the ratchet knob , and fully low er the lever.

Brake system control indicator R The control indicator lights when the ignition is switched on, if the handbrake is app lied or if the b ra ke or clutch fluid level is too low. B ra ke fluid level – see page 240.

If the control indicator lights w hen the ha nd brake is not applied: Stop. Interrupt your journey immediately . Consult a workshop. We rec om mend a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

182

ABS u The Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) continuously monitors the vehicle’s brake system a nd prevents the wheels from locking regardless of the road c ondition and tyre grip.

It starts to regulate the braking p ressure as soon as a w heel shows a tendency to lock. The vehicle remains steera ble, even in the event of very heavy braking, for instance on bends or when sw erving to avoid an obstacle. Even in the ca se of full-on braking, the ABS makes it p ossible to drive round an obsta cle without releasing the brakes.

AB S control is m ade apparent though a pulse in the brake pedal a nd the noise of the reg ulation process.

For optimum braking, keep the brake peda l fully dep ressed throughout the braking process, despite the fact that the peda l is p ulsating. Do not reduce the pressure on the pedal.

Do not let this special safety feature tempt you into taking risks when driving.

Tra ffic safety can only b e ac hieved by adopting a responsible d riv ing sty le.

183

Control indica tor u for ABSIf illuminates for several seconds when the ignition is switched on and the system undergoes a self-check at the same time (may be audible). The system is ready for operation when the control indica tor goes off.

If the control indicator does not g o out after a few second s, or if it lights while driving, there is a fault in the ABS. The brake system remains operational without ABS regulation.

You can continue driving, prov ided you drive with care a nd antic ipation.

Have c ause of fault remedied. We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repa irer. The system’s integrated self-diagnostics allows faults to be quickly remedied .

If there is a fault in ABS, the wheels may be subjec t to locking d ue to brak ing that is heavier tha n normal. The adva ntages of ABS are no longer op erational. The vehicle ca n no longer be steered and may swerve.

184

Wheels, tyres

TyresSee page 268 for suitable tyres a nd restrictions.

Factory-fitted tyres are m atched to the chassis and offer optimum driving comfort and safety .

Changing tyre / wheel typeBefore switching to different tyres or wheels, seek advice on technical possibilities. We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, who will be able to advise you of any necessary mod ifications. If tyres of a size different than those fitted a t the factory are used, the electronic speedometer may require reprogramming to ensure tha t the correct speed is displayed.

Vehicles withTyre Pressure Control System 3When using winter ty res or you change to other tyre sizes, tyre pressure control system sensors can b e retro-fitted if required. We recommend tha t you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. Otherwise the system w ill not indicate tyre pressure differences.

Tyre p ressure control system 3 – see page 176.

Fitting new tyr esFit tyres in pa irs or in sets, which is even better. Ensure tha t tyres on one axle arez the same siz e,z the same design,z the same make,z and have the same tread pattern.

Fit directional tyres such that they roll in the direction of travel. The rolling direction is indicated by a symbol (e.g. an arrow) on the sidewall.

Tyres fitted opposing the rolling direction (e.g. when a tyre is changed) should be refitted as soon as possible. This is the only way to obtain full benefit from the design properties of the tyre.

Tyre inflation pressureCheck ty re pressures, including the spare wheel, a t least every 14 da ys and prior to any long journey ; the ty res should b e checked when cold. Don’ t forget to chec k the spare.

Use of unsuitab le tyres or wheels m ay lead to accidents and render the vehicle unroa d-worthy .

We recom mend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer to have the tyres replaced. A Vauxhall Authorised Repairer knows the legal regulations concerning the disposal of tyres and therefore protects the environment and your health.

Use the valve cap key to make it easier to unscrew the valve c aps. The key is located on the inside of the tank flap. On vehicles with Tyre pressure control system 3, there is an adapter in the valve cap key. For fitting the pressure ga uge ada pter to the valve – see page 176.

Tyre inflation pressures – see page 268 and label on inside of tank flap. After changing tyre siz es, have the la bel replaced.

Do not reduce tyre pressure when the ty res are warm. Otherwise the pressure m ay drop below the permissible minim um when the ty res cool down.

After having chec ked the tyre pressures, tig hten the va lve ca ps using the valve cap key .

Incorrect infla tion pressures will imp air safety, vehicle handling, comfort and fuel economy and will increase tyre wear.

If the pressure is too low, this can result in considera ble ty re warm -up and internal damage, leading to trea d separation and even to tyre blow-out at high sp eeds.

Hidden tyre d amage is not eliminated by subsequently adjusting the inflation pressure.

Tyre condition, wheel conditionDrive over edges slowly and at a right angle if possible. Driv ing over sharp edg es can lead to hidd en tyre damage and wheel dam age which is only noticed later on.

When p arking, ensure that the tyres are not pressed against the edge of the kerb.

Check ty res regularly for d amage (foreign bodies, punctures, cuts, cracks, bulges in sidewa lls). Check wheels for dam age. In the event of damag e or ab normal wear, consult a workshop. We recommend a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Incorrect ty re pressure may result in tyre blow-out.

Damage may lead to tyre blow-out.

186

Tread depthCheck tread depth regularly. If the front tyres show greater wear than the rear tyres, swa p the front wheels with the rea r wheels so that the tyres with deep er tread are on the front axle.

For reasons of safety, tyres should be rep la ced when their tread depth has worn down to 2 to 3 mm (winter tyres: 4 mm).

The leg ally permissible minimum trea d depth (1.6 mm) has been reached when the tread has worn down as far as one of the wear indicators (TWI1)). A number of wear indicators are sp aced at eq ual intervals around the tyre within the trea d. Their position is indicated by m arkings on the tyre sid ewall.

General information

z The danger of aq uap laning is greater if the ty res are worn.

z Tyres age, even if they a re used only very little or not at all. A spare wheel which has not b een used for six years should be used w ith ca re.

z Never fit used tyres the previous history and use of which you do not know.

z So as not to impair b ra ke cooling, use only wheel trims approved for use on your vehicle.

Winter tyresFor notes on fitting new tyres – see page 184.

See page 268 for restric tions.

Winter tyres (M+ S tyres) im prove safety at tem peratures below 7 °C and should therefore be fitted on all the wheels.

The d esign of summ er tyres mea ns they have limited qualities for winter driving.

If the maxim um perm issible speed for the winter ty res is less than that of the vehicle, a notice ind icating the ma ximum permissible speed for the tyres must be affixed within the driver’s field of v ision1).

If you use the spare wheel when it is fitted with a summer tyre, the vehicle’s driveability may be affected, espec ia lly on slip pery roa d surfaces. Ob ta in a rep la cement for the faulty ty re as soon a s possible, and have the wheel balanced and fitted to the vehicle.

Tyre chainsSee pag e 268 for restrictions.

Tyre chains are only p ermitted on the front drive wheels.

Alw ays use fine mesh chains that add no more than 15 m m to the ty re tread and the inboard sides (including chain lock).

We rec om mend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Wheel trim on steel wheels could come into contact with parts of the cha ins and b e dam aged . Remove the wheel trim – see pag e 209.

Tyre cha ins may only be used at sp eeds up to 30 mph (50 km/h)1). When driving on roads that are free of snow, they may only be used for brief periods since they are subject to rap id wea r on ha rd roads and could snap.

Tempora ry w heel 3 Tyre chains must not be used on the temporary spare wheel. If you need to use tyre chains after suffering a flat front tyre, fit the temporary spa re on the rear ax le and transfer one of the rea r wheels to the front axle.

Caravan and trailer loads1)

The permissib le caravan / tra iler loads are vehicle d epend ent and engine dependent ma ximum values which must not be exceeded. The actua l caravan / trailer load is the d ifference between the actual gross weight of the caravan / tra iler and the actual c oupling socket load with the caravan / tra iler attached . When the caravan / tra iler load is being checked, therefore, only the caravan / trailer wheels – and not the jockey wheel – must be standing on the weighing apparatus.

The permissib le caravan / tra iler loads for your vehicle are given in the vehicle documents. Unless otherwise stated, they are valid for g ra dients up to max. 12 %.

1) Observe n atio nal regulations.

196

The p ermissible caravan / trailer load should b e fully utilised only b y drivers who are adequa tely experienced in towing large or heavy caravans / trailers.

The p ermissible caravan / trailer load applies up to the specified incline and up to an altitude of 1000 m etres above sea level. Since engine power decreases as altitude increases because of the air becom ing thinner, therefore reducing climbing ability, the p ermitted towing weig ht a lso decreases by 10 % for every 1000 metres of additional altitude. The towing weight does not have to be reduced when driv ing on roads with slight inclines (less than 8 %, e.g. m otorways).

The ac tual ca ra van / trailer load plus the actual gross vehicle weight must not exceed the m aximum permitted towing weig ht. For exam ple, if the perm itted gross vehicle weight is utilised, the caravan / trailer load m ust only be used until the maximum perm itted towing weight is reac hed. The maximum permitted towing weig ht is shown on the identifica tion plate – see pag e 250.

Coupling socket loadThe coupling socket load is the load exerted by the caravan / trailer on the coupling ball. It can be varied b y chang ing the weight distribution when loading the caravan / trailer.

The maxim um perm issible coupling socket loa d (78 kg ) is specified on the towing equipment identification plate and in the vehicle documents. Always a im for the maximum loa d, especially in the case of heavy caravans / trailers. The coupling socket load should never fall below 25 kg.

When m easuring the coupling socket load, make sure that the draw bar of the loaded caravan / trailer is at the same height as it will be when the c aravan / trailer is coupled with the towing vehicle loaded. Particularly important for c aravans / trailers w ith tand em axle.

Rear axle load during towingWhen the caravan / trailer is coup led a nd the towing vehic le fully loaded (including all occupants), the perm issible rear ax le loa d (see identification plate or vehicle docum ents) may be exceeded by 40 kg (90 lbs). If the permissib le rear axle load is exc eeded, a maximum speed of 60 mph (100 km/h) a pplies. If national regula tions specify a low er ma ximum speed for vehicles towing a caravan / trailer, this must b e observed.

Tyre inflation pressureIncrease tyre pressure on the towing vehicle to the value specified for the loa d – see page 268. Also check the tyre inflation pressure on the caravan / trailer wheels and the spare w heel.

197

Driving characteristics, towing tipsBefore attaching the ca ra van / trailer, lubricate the ball of the caravan / trailer towing device. However, do not do so if a stabiliser, which acts on the coupling ba ll, is being used to damp hunting.

Handling is greatly influenced by the loading of the caravan / trailer. Loads should therefore be secured so that they cannot slip and be placed in the c entre of the c aravan / trailer if possib le, i.e. above the a xle.

When pulling trailers whose stability on the road is low, and caravans whose perm itted total weight exc eeds 1400 kg, speeds should b e kept below 50 mph (80 km/h); the use of an anti-hunting damper is emphatically recommend ed.

Check caravan / trailer lighting b efore starting to drive. The fog tail lights on the vehicle are deactivated w hen towing a caravan or trailer.

Do not d rive faster than 50 mph (80 km/h) if possible, even in countries where hig her speeds are permitted.

Make sure that you have enough room when cornering and a void sud den manoeuvres.

If the caravan / trailer starts to swa y, drive more slowly, d o not a ttempt to correct the steering and b ra ke sharply if necessary.

The cooling fan is electrically operated. Its cooling p ow er is therefore independent of the engine speed.

Since a considerable amount of heat is genera ted at high engine speeds and less at slower speeds, do not shift d ow n when climbing hills whilst the vehicle is still coping with the gradient in the higher g ear.

Diesel engine: On rising gradients of 10 % or more, do not drive faster than 20 mph (30 km/h) in 1st gea r or 30 mp h (50 km/h) in 2nd gear; with automatic transmission 3 , do not exceed 25 mph (40 km/h) in position 1.

The brakes are heav ily loaded when towing a caravan / trailer d ow n long gradients, so select the sam e gear as you would driving uphill and drive at roug hly the sam e speed. The automatic transmission 3 or CVTronic 3 w ill automatically select the driving programm e w ith the optimum eng ine brak ing effect.

If necessary, the gears can a lso be selec ted ma nually.

If it is necessary to apply the brakes fully , depress the brake pedal a s hard as possible.

Remem ber that the braking d istance for vehicles towing carava ns / trailers w ith and without brake is always greater than that for vehic les not tow ing a caravan / trailer.

198

Starting on inclinesVehicles with ma nual transmission:

The m ost favourable engine sp eed when starting off on an incline is b etween 2500 and 3000 rpm for p etrol engines a nd between 2000 and 2200 rpm for diesel engines. Hold engine rpm c onstant, enga ge c lutch grad ually (let slip), release brake and open throttle. If possib le, the engine sp eed should not drop d uring this proced ure.

In vehicles with autom atic transmission 3 or CVTronic 3 , use full throttle.

Before starting off under extreme conditions (high c om bination w eight, mountainous terrain with steep inc lines), switch off all unnecessary elec trica l loa ds (e.g. heated rear wind ow , air conditioning system 3, heated seats 3).

199

Self-help Diesel fuel system, bleedingNever let the tank run dry ! If c ontrol indica tor Y lights up, refuel as soon as possible. Refuel immediately if it fla shes.

It is p ossib le to restart the engine if the ta nk ha s b een run dry . A delayed start is to be exp ected. Attempt to start the engine for a maximum of 60 sec onds. If the eng ine d oes not sta rt, wa it a few minutes and try aga in.

Do not start with quick chargerThis prevents d amage to electronic components.

Do not start by pushing or towingBecause your vehicle is fitted with a catalytic converter, it must not be started by pushing or towing.

Disreg ard of these notes ca n lead to injuries which may be fatal. Vehicle passengers should be informed according ly .

200

Starting the engine with jump leads 3 A vehicle with a discharged battery can be started using jump lead s and the battery of another vehicle.

z Never expose the b attery to naked flames or sparks.

z Do not allow battery fluid to come into contact with eyes, skin, fa bric s or painted surfaces. The fluid contains sulp huric ac id which can cause injuries and d amage in the event of d irect contact.

z Wear eye protec tion and protective clothing when handling a b attery.

z Make sure that the battery p rov id ing the jump start has the same voltage as the battery in your vehicle (12 V). Its capa city (Ah) must not be substantially lower than that of the discha rg ed battery. The voltage and capa city are stated on the battery .

z Do not disconnect the discharged battery from the vehicle.

z Switch off all unnecessary electrical consumers.

z Do not lean over the ba ttery during jump starting.

z Do not allow the terminals of one lead to touch those of the other lead .

z Apply handbrake. Transmission in neutral, automatic transmission 3 or CVTronic 3 in P.

The battery is in a box at the front of the eng ine compartm ent, on the right-hand side as v iewed from the front. To open the box, pull the c over forwards and swing it upwards.

This must be done with extrem e ca re. Any dev iation from the following instruc tions c ould lea d to personal injury or damage resulting from battery explosion, as well as to damage to the elec trical systems in both vehicles.

201

Connect the lea ds in the order shown in the figure:

1. Connect one end of the first jump lead to the positive terminal 1 of the battery prov iding the jump start (identified by "+" sign on battery case or terminal).

2. Connect the other end of this lea d to the positive terminal 2 of the discharged battery ("+" sign).

3. Connect the first end of the other jump lead to the negative terminal 3 of the battery prov iding the start ("–" sign).

4. Connect the other end of the second jump lead 4 to ground on the other vehicle, e.g. engine block or screw connection in the engine suspension.

z Do not connect leads to negative term inal of discharged battery!

z The connection p oint should be as far away from the discharged battery as possible.

z Route the lead s so that they cannot catch on rotating parts in the engine compa rtm ent.

z The eng ine of the vehicle prov iding the jum p sta rt can be allowed to run d uring starting. Attempts to start the engine of the vehicle with the disc ha rg ed b attery should be made at intervals of one minute and should not la st longer tha n 15 seconds. After starting, allow both engines to idle for approx. 3 minutes w ith the leads still connected.

z In order to a void excess voltage in the electric al system, b efore removing a lead, sw itc h on a n electrica l consumer (e.g. light, heated rear window) in the vehicle receiving the jump sta rt.

z Reverse above seq uence exac tly when removing leads.

Maintenance,Inspection system

In ord er to guarantee economical and sa fe vehic le operation a nd to maintain the value of your vehicle, it is of vital importance tha t all maintenance work is carried out at the p roper intervals as specified by Vauxhall.

The oil c hange and serv ice intervals are flex ible, based on a numb er of different param eters and the conditions under which the vehicle is used. Various engine-specific da ta is c ontinuously record ed a nd used to ca lc ulate the remaining distance up to the next inspection date.

The rem aining driving dista nce can b e seen in the tachom eter disp la y when the ignition is off: Press the reset button und er the trip odometer; v and the remaining driving dista nce will then be displayed.

If the remaining dista nce to the next service is less than 1000 miles (1500 km ),v is disp layed with a remaining dista nce of 600 m iles (1000 km ) when the ignition is switched on. v is displayed for several second s if the rem aining d istance is less than 600 miles (1000 km ). Have the service work that is due ca rried out within one week or 300 miles (500 km). Ha ve this work carried out by a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer in ord er to avoid loss of warranty claims.

The service interval display takes acc ount of off-the-road periods during which the battery is disconnected.

Further information on maintenance and the inspection system can be found in the Service Booklet, which is in the glove compa rtm ent.

235

Have maintenance work, as well as repairs to the b od ywork and equipment, carried out by a professional. We recomm end a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, who is familiar with Vauxhall vehicles and in possession of the nec essary sp ecial tools and the latest Service Instructions from Vauxhall. It is particularly advisable to use a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer during the warranty p eriod to avoid invalidation of warranty claims. See the Serv ice Booklet for further information.

Separ ate anti-cor rosion serviceHave this carried out every 2 years, either within the scope of a Service or separately, see Service Book let. We recomm end that you c onsult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer in order to avoid loss of warranty claims for rust d amage.

A note on safetyTo avoid injury from cables cond ucting ignition voltage, only c arry out engine compartment checks (e.g. checking the brake fluid level or engine oil level) when the ignition is switched off.

Never carry out any repairs or adjustment and m aintenance work on the vehicle yourself. This especially applies to the eng ine, chassis and safety parts. You may unwittingly infringe the p rov isions of the law and, by not performing the work properly , endanger yourself and other road users.

Checking and topping up fluids To aid identification, the engine oil filler cap , coolant expansion tank ca p, hea dlight 3 and w indscreen wash fluid container ca p and the ha nd le of the oil dipstick a re coloured yellow.

The cooling fan is controlled by a thermo-switch and can therefore start unexp ectedly even if the ignition is switched off. Risk of injury.

Electronic ignition systems generate very high voltages. Do not touch the ignition system; hig h voltage can be fatal.

236

Engine oilThe oils listed on pag e 252 are particularly suitab le for this engine.

These high-quality oils are suitable for sum mer and winter operation.

Com mercially available oils must only be used in the grades a nd viscosities shown on page 252. This may reduce the cha nge interval. In case of doubt, conta ct a workshop. We recommend consulting a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

In the case of brand oils the ma nufacturers are responsible for ensuring that the oils they supply are suitable for Vauxhall vehic les.

Engine oil level and consumpt ionIt is norma l for every engine to consum e some oil. Engine oil consum ption cannot be reliably ascertained until the vehicle has covered a substantial numb er of miles / kilometres. During the running-in phase, it may b e above the spec ified level. Frequent running at high engine speeds increases oil consumption.

The engine oil level is checked autom atic ally – see p age 38. Before emba rk ing on a long journey it is recommended tha t the eng ine oil level is checked.

Checking the engine oil level, top ping up engine oilThe figures on this page show the chec ks for various petrol and d iesel engines, Fig. 15175 J on the next page shows checks for engine Y 30 DT1) .

The oil level must be checked with the vehicle horizontal and with the engine (which must be at operating tempera ture) switched off. Wait a t least five minutes before checking the level to allow the normal oil acc um ulation in the engine to drain ba ck into the oil pa n.

1) Sales des ignation – see page 257.

Imp ortant: It is the ow ner’s responsibility to maintain the proper level of an appropriate qua lity oil in the engine.

To check the level, rem ove the oil gauge (dipstic k), w ipe it clean and reinsert it as far as it will g o. At the very latest, top up if the oil level has dropped to just ab ove the "add oil" ma rk MIN .

The oil level must not go above the upper mark MAX on the dipstick. Excess oil m ust be drained or extracted b y suction. If the oil level does go above the mark MAX there is a risk of d amage to the engine or catalytic converter.

The a mount filled must be between the MIN and MA X marks – see pag e 276.

When top ping up, use the sam e oil a s a t the la st oil change, and pa y strict attention to the instructions on pa ge 252.

Lubricant charts – see p age 253, 254, 255.

Capacities – see page 276.

The oil consumption will not stabilise until the vehicle has been driven several thousand miles. Only then can the ac tual ra te of consum ption b e estab lished .

Oil chang e, oi l filter cha ng eCha nge the oil at the displayed serv ice interva ls.

We recommend that you use g enuine Vauxhall oil filters.

Used oil filters and empty oil cans do not belong in the domestic garb age. We recommend having oil changes and oil filter changes carried out by a Va uxhall Authorised Repairer. The Vauxhall Authorised Repairer knows the laws conc erning the disposa l of used oil and therefore protects the env ironment and your health.

238

Diesel fuel f ilterCheck fuel filter for a ny w ater residue when each engine oil cha ng e takes place. We recom mend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Have filter checked at shorter intervals in the c ase of extreme opera ting conditions suc h a s high humidity (prima rily in coastal areas), extremely high or low outside tem peratures and substantially varying daytim e a nd nig ht-time tem peratures.

CoolantDuring operation the system is pressurised. The temp erature ma y therefore rise briefly to over 100 °C.

The glycol-ba sed coolant provides exc ellent corrosion protection for the heating and cooling systems as well as anti-freeze protection down to –28 °C. It remains in the cooling system throughout the year and need not b e changed.

Certain a ntifreezes ca n lead to engine damage. We therefore strongly recommend the use of antifreezes that ha ve b een approved by Vauxhall.

Anti -freeze a nd corrosion protect ionBefore the sta rt of the cold weather season, have the coolant checked for correct concentration. We recommend that you consult a Vauxha ll Authorised Repairer. The amount of a ntifreeze must provide protec tion up to approx.–28 °C. If the antifreeze concentra tion is too low, this reduc es protection from freezing and corrosion. Top up antifreeze if necessary .

If c oolant loss is topped up with wa ter, have concentration checked and a dd anti-freeze if necessary.

Anti-freeze is a da nger to health; it must therefore be kept in the original container and out of the reach of children.

239

Coola nt levelHardly any losses occur since the cooling system is sealed and it is thus rarely necessary to top up the c oolant.

The c oolant in the compensation tank should b e slightly above the markKALT / COLD with the cooling system cold. It rises when the engine is warm and fa lls again as it c ools. If it drop s b elow the marking in this case, it should be topped up to a level just above the marking.

Top up anti-freeze. I f no anti-freeze is available, top up w ith c lean tap water. If tap water is unavailable, distilled water can be used.

After topping up w ith tap or distilled water, ha ve the anti-freez e concentration checked, a nd anti-freeze added if necessary. H ave the cause of the coolant loss remedied. We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

When closing, tighten coola nt filler cap as fa r as it will go.

Coolant temp era tureFor physical reasons, the engine temperature gauge shows the coolant temperature only if the coolant level is adequate.

During operation the system is pressurised. The tem perature may therefore rise to over 100 °C.

If the temp erature g auge enters the right-hand (w arning) zone or control indicator W lights up, chec k the c oolant level imm ediately.

z Coolant level low:Top up coolant. Pay strict attention to the instructions given under "Anti-freeze and corrosion protection" a nd "Coolant level". Have the cause of coolant loss remedied . We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

z Coolant level OK:Have the c ause of inc reased coolant temperature remed ied. Contact a workshop. We rec om mend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Allow engine to cool d ow n before removing coola nt filler ca p. Remove filler cap carefully so that p ressure can escape slowly, otherwise there is a risk of scalding.

240

Brake fluidBrake fluid level

The fluid level in the reservoir must b e neither higher than the MAX m ark nor lower than the MIN mark.

Use of some brake fluid s could c ause dam age or im pair braking effectiveness. Stay well informed. We recomm end that you only use Vauxhall-approved high performance brake fluid.

Extreme cleanliness is im porta nt, since brake fluid contam ination can lead to brake system malfunctions.

After correcting the brake fluid level, have the cause of the loss rem edied. We recommend that you consult a Va uxha ll Authorised Repairer.

Brake fluid changeBrake fluid is hygroscopic, i.e. it absorbs water. If the brakes become hot, such as when driving on long downhill stretches, vapour bubbles ca n oc cur in the water, whic h can have an extremely ad verse effect on brak ing power (depending on the prop ortion of water).

The fluid change intervals specified in the Serv ic e Booklet must therefore be ob served.

Windscreen wiperClear v ision is essential for safe driving.

You should therefore perform regular checks on the windscreen wiper a nd hea dlight wiper system 3 to m ake sure they are operating correc tly .

If the windsc reen is dirty, operate the screenwash b efore switching on the windscreen wiper or setting the wiper to automatic op eration with the rain sensor 3. This will avoid wip er blad e wear.

Do not switch on the windscreen wiper or set to a utoma tic operation with the rain sensor 3 if the windscreen is iced up as this could da mage the wiper blades or the wiper system.

If the wiper bec om es frozen on to the glass, we recomm end that it be released with the aid of Vauxhall De-icer Spray.

Smearing wiper blades c an be cleaned with a soft cloth and Vauxhall Wind screen Wash Solvent.

Wiper blades whose lips have become hardened, cracked or covered with silicone must be replac ed. This may be necessary as a result of the effects of ic e, thawing salt or hea t, or the incorrect use of cleaning agents.

Switc h off the windsc reen w ip er and automatic operation with rain sensor 3 in car washes – see pages 19, 246.

Caution – brake fluid is poisonous and corrosive. Do not allow it to come into contact with eyes, sk in, fabric or painted surfaces. Direct contact could cause injury and damage.

We recommend that you have brake fluid changed by a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, who will be familiar with the req uirements of the law as regards disposal of brake fluid a nd can thus help to protec t the env ironment and your hea lth.

241

To ensure proper operation of the ra in sensor 3, the sensor a rea must be free from dust, dirt and ice. The windscreen w ash system m ust also be operated at regular intervals and the sensor a rea m ust be de-iced. Vehicles with rain sensor 3 ca n be identified by the sensor area near the top of the w indscreen.

Service setting for front w indscreen w iper(e.g. for cha nging or cleaning the front wiper b la des).

Within 8 seconds of switching off the ignition, press the windscreen wip er stalk downwards. Release the windscreen wip er stalk as soon as the w ip er blad es are vertical.

Wiper blades on the windscreenActivating serv ice p osition, see preceding column. Lift wiper arm. Press the release lever a nd detac h the wiper blade.

242

Windscreen and headlight wash systems 3 The filler neck for the windscreen w ash reservoir and the headlight washing system 3 is at the front left of the engine compartment near the battery . The fluid level in the reservoir ca n be c hecked using the d ipstick. Do not fill fluid level to more than 1/1. Capa city – see p age 276.

Fill only with clean w ater to prevent the nozzles from clogging. To improve cleaning efficiency, we recommend that you add a little Vauxhall Wind screen Wash Solvent.

The windscreen wash system and headlight wash system w ill not freeze in winter:

When closing the container, press the lid firmly over the beaded ed ge a ll the way round.

BatteryThe battery is m aintenance-free.

Retro-fitted electrical or electronic acc essories can p lace an additional load on the battery or even discha rg e the battery. We recom mend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer regarding technical possibilities, suc h as fitting a more powerful battery.

We recom mend that you have battery chang es carried out by a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. The Vauxhall Authorised Repairer knows the laws conc erning the disposa l of used batteries a nd therefore protects the environment and your health.

243

Laying up the vehicle for more than 4 weeks can lead to ba ttery d ischarge, which may reduce the service life of the battery. Disconnect battery from on-board power supply by detaching negative term inal (anti-theft alarm system 3 is then disabled ).

Do not connect battery with ignition switched on. Then perform the following opera tions:

z Remove radio b lock 3, see rad io op erating instructions.

z Set date and time in information display – see page 44.

z Activate w indow and sun roofelec tronics 3 – see pages 121, 124.

In order to prevent the b attery from discharging , som e c onsumers suc h as the courtesy light automatically switch off after approx. 20 minutes.

Protecting electronic com ponentsIn order to prevent faults in electronic components in the electrica l system, never connect or disconnect battery with engine running or ignition switched on. Never start engine w ith b attery disconnected, e.g. when starting using jump leads.

The battery m ust b e disconnected from the vehicle b efore b eing charged: first disconnect the neg ative cable and then the positive cable. The polarity of the battery , i.e. the connections for the positive and neg ative cables, m ust not be interchanged. When reconnecting , first connect the positive cab le and then the neg ative cable.

To avoid damaging the vehic le, d o not ma ke a ny modifications to the electrical system, e.g. connecting ad ditional consum ers or tampering with electronic control units (chip tuning).

Electronic ignition system s generate very hig h voltages. Do not touch the ignition system; high voltage can b e fatal.

244

Vehicle decom missioningObserve na tional regulations.

If the vehicle is decomm issioned for several months, the follow ing work must be ca rried out in order to prevent damage. We recom mend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Vehicle care Consult a Vauxhall Authorised Rep airer with regard to care a id s tested and recommended by Vauxhall.

When caring for your vehicle, observe all na tional environm ental reg ulations, particula rly when wa shing it.

Regular, thorough care helps to improve the appearance of your vehicle and maintain its value over the years. It is a lso a prerequisite for warranty claims for any paint or corrosion damag e. The following pages contain tips for vehicle care which, if used properly , will help combat the unavoida ble d amaging effects of the environment.

Vehicle care aids 3 Vehicle wash: z Wa sh brush,z Shampoo,z Sponge, z Insect Removal Sponge,z Chamois.

246

WashingThe paintwork of your vehicle is exposed to env ironmenta l influences, e.g. continuous changes in weather conditions, ind ustrial waste gases and dust or tha wing sa lts, so wash and wax your vehicle regularly. When using a utoma tic car washes, select a programme which includes wax ing.

Bird droppings, dead insects, resin, pollen and the like should be cleaned off immediately , as they contain aggressive constituents which can cause paint dam age.

Please follow the wash system manufacturer’s instructions w hen using wash systems. The wind screen wiper and the autom atic wiper w ith rain sensor 3 and the rear window wiper 3 must be switched off – see page 19. Unscrew the antenna rod 3 a nd the roof rack 3, standing on the door sill to make them easier to reach.

If you w ash your vehicle by hand, make sure that the insides of the wing s a re also thoroughly rinsed out.

Clea n edges and folds on op ened doors and flaps as well a s the area s they cover.

Thoroughly rinse off and leather-off the vehicle. Rinse leather frequently . Use separate leathers for paint and w indow surfaces: remnants of wax on the wind ow s will impair vision.

Observe national regulations.

WaxingWax your vehicle regularly, in pa rticular after it has been washed using shampoo and at the latest when wa ter no longer forms beads on the pa intwork, otherwise the paintwork will d ry out.

Also wax edg es a nd folds on op ened doors and flaps as well a s the area s they cover.

PolishingPolishing is necessary only if the pa int has become dull or if solid deposits have become attached to it.

Paintwork polish with silicone forms a protec tive film, making w axing unnecessary.

Plastic body parts should not be treated with wax and polish.

Use Metallic Paintwork Wax on vehicles with a metallic-effect paint finish.

WheelsUse a pH-neutral w heel c leaning agent to clean the wheels.

Wheels a re painted and ca n be treated with the same ag ents as the body. For alloy wheels we recomm end use of Alloy Wheel Preserver.

247

Paintwork damageRepair small area s of p aint damage suc h as stone impacts, scratches etc. immediately using a Va uxha ll touch-up applicator or Vauxhall sp ra y and touch-up paint before rust can form . If rust has alrea dy formed, ha ve the c ause remedied. We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. Please also pay attention to surfaces and edg es beneath the vehicle where rust ma y have formed unnoticed for some time.

Exterior lightsHeadlight and other protective lig ht bezels are made of plastic. If they require additional cleaning after the vehicle has been washed, clea n them with Car Shamp oo. Do not use any ab ra sive or caustic agents, do not use an ice scraper, and do not clean them dry.

Plastic and rubber partsFor add itional cleaning of plastic and rubb er parts use C leaner. Do not use any other agent, and in particular do not use solvents or petrol.

Wheels and tyresDo not use high-pressure jet clea ners on wheels and tyres.

Interior and upholsteryClean the vehicle interior, including the instrument panel fac ia , using interior cleaner.

C lean fabric upholstery w ith a vacuum cleaner and brush. To remove stains, use cleaner tha t is suitable for both fabrics and vinyl.

Do not use cleaning agents suc h as acetone, c arbon tetrachlorid e, paint thinner, paint remover, nail varnish remover, washing pow der or b leach to clean fabrics, carpets, the dashboard or leather trim 3 in the vehicle interior. Benzine is also unsuita ble.

Seat beltsAlways keep seat b elts clean a nd dry.

C lean only w ith lukewa rm water or C leaner.

248

WindowsWhen cleaning the heated rear window, make sure tha t the heating element on the inside of the wind ow is not d amaged.

Use a soft lint-free cloth or chamois leather in conjunction with Wind ow Cleaner and Insect Remover.

Vauxhall Windscreen Wash Solvent is suitab le for de-icing windows.

For mechanical removal of ice, use a commercially a vailable sharp-edged ice scraper. Press the sc ra per firmly against the g lass so that no dirt can get und er it and scratch the glass.

Windscreen wiper bladesSmearing wiper blades can be c leaned with a soft c loth and Vauxhall Windscreen Wash Solvent, and replaced if necessary – see p age 240.

LocksThe locks are lubricated with a hig h-grad e lock cylinder grease at the fac tory . Vauxhall lock cylinder grease prevents the locks from freezing up. Only use de-ic ing agent in emerg encies, a s they have a degreasing effect a nd will impair the function of the locks. After using a de-icing agent, have the locks re-greased. We recommend that you entrust this to a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Engine compartmentArea s in the engine compartment painted in the vehicle colour a re cared for like any other pa inted area. It is adv isable to wash and w ax the engine compartment before and a fter winter. Cover the alternator a nd brake fluid reservoir with plastic sheeting before washing the engine.

When washing the engine with a steam -jet cleaner, d o not direct the steam jet at components of the Anti-lock Brake System, the a utoma tic air cond itioning system, the auxiliary heating system hea ter or the belt drive and its components.

Protective wax that has been applied is also rem oved during the engine wash. For this reason, have the engine, brake system components in the engine c om partment, ax le components with steering , body parts and c avities thoroughly preserved with protec tive w ax after the wash. We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repa irer.

An eng ine wash can be performed in the spring in order to remove dirt that has adhered to the engine compartment, which ma y also have a high salt content. Check protective wax layer and make good if nec essary .

Do not use high-pressure jet c leaners on wheels and tyres.

249

UnderbodyYour vehicle has a fa ctory-applied PVC undercoating in the wheel arches (includ ing the longitudinal members) w hich provides permanent protection and needs no special m aintenance. The surfaces of the vehicle underbody not covered b y PVC are provided with a durable protective w ax coating in critical areas.

On vehicles which are washed frequently in autom atic car washes with underbody washing facility, the protective wax coating may b e impaired by d irt-dissolv ing additives, so check the underbody after washing and ha ve it waxed if necessary . Before the start of the cold weather season, check the PVC c oa ting a nd protective wax coating and, if necessary , have them restored to perfect condition.

Caution – commercially availa ble bitumen / rubber materials can damag e the PVC coating. We recommend that you have underbody work carried out by a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, who knows the prescribed materials and has experience in the use thereof.

The underbody should be washed following the end of the cold weather season to remove any dirt adhering to the underbody since this may also contain salt. Check p rotective wax c oa ting and , if nec essary , have it restored to perfec t condition.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emiss ionsDirective 80/1268/EEC (last c hanged by 1999/100/EC) has ap plied for the measurement of fuel consumption since 1996.

The direc tive is oriented to actual driving practices: Urban driv ing is rated at approx. 1/3 and extra-urb an driving with approx . 2/3 (urban and extra-urban consum ption). Cold starts and acceleration phases are also taken into consideration.

The specification of CO2 emission is also a constituent of the directive.

The figures given m ust not be taken as a guarantee for the actual fuel consumption of a p artic ular vehicle.

The calculation of fuel consumption as spec ified by directive 1999/100/EC takes acc ount of the vehicle’s kerbweight, ascertained in accordance with these regula tions. Optional extras ma y result in slightly higher fuel consumption and CO2 emission levels than those quoted.

To convert l/100km into mp g, divide 282 by number of litres/100km.

Saving fuel – see page 160.

Weights, payload and roof loadThe p ayload is the difference between the permitted g ross vehicle weight (see identification plate, page 250) and the EC kerbweight.

To ca lc ulate the kerbweight, enter the data for your vehicle below: z Kerb weight from

Ta ble 1,page 264 + ... ..... .... .. kg

z Ad ditional w eight ofequipment versions fromTa ble 2, p age 266 + ... .... ..... .. kg

z Weight of heavy accessories from Ta ble 3,page 267 + ... ..... .... .. kg

The total = ... ..... .... .. kg

is the EC kerbweight.

Optional equipment and accessories increase the kerbweight, w hich means that the p ayload will also change slig htly.

Note the weights given in the vehicle documents.

The combined total of front a nd rear ax le loa ds must not exceed the perm issible gross vehicle weight. For exa mple, if the front ax le is bearing its m aximum permissib le load, the rear axle can only bear a load that is eq ua l to the gross vehicle weig ht m inus the front axle load.

See the identification plate or vehicle docum ents for permissib le ax le loads.

Roof loa dThe permissib le roof load is 75 kg(Estate with roof railing – 100 kg). The roof load is the combined weight of the roof rack and the load .

Do not drive faster than 75 mph (120 km /h). Check fastening at frequent interva ls and tig hten.

For safety reasons and to avoid damage to the roof, we recommend that the use of Vauxhall-approved roof rack systems for your vehicle. A Va uxha ll Authorised Repairer w ould be p leased to advise you.

TyresRestrictionsNot a ll tyres ava ila ble on the market currently meet the structural requirem ents. We recommend that you consult a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer concerning suitab le tyre makes.

These ty res have und ergone special tests to establish their reliab ility , safety and specific suitability for Vauxhall vehicles. Despite continuous ma rket monitoring, we are unab le to assess these attributes for other tyres, even if they have been g ra nted approva l by the relevant authorities or in som e other form.

Further information – see pa ge 184.

Winter tyresTyres of size 215/50 R 17, 225/45 R 18 or 235/35 R 19 may not be used as winter tyres (M+ S tyres).

Only the winter tyres sp ecified on p age 274 may b e used on vehicles factory-fitted with tyre eq uipm ent 235/35 R 19.

If you use winter ty res 3, the spare wheel may still be fitted with a summ er tyre. If you use the spare wheel the vehicle’s handling may be a ltered. Ob tain a repla cement for the faulty tyre as soon a s p ossible, and ha ve the wheel balanced and fitted to the vehicle.

Further inform ation – see page 187.

Tyre chainsRestrictionsTyre c hains may be used on the front wheels only.

Alw ays use fine mesh chains that add no more than 15 m m to the ty re tread and the inboard sides (including chain lock).

Snow chains are not permitted on the temporary spare wheel 3 115/70 R 16 and tyre sizes 215/50 R 17, 225/45 R 18 and 235/35 R 19.

Further inform ation – see page 187.

WheelsWheel bolt tightening torque: 110 Nm.

On vehicles with alloy wheels 3 the spa re wheel m ay have a steel rim.

The spare wheel ma y have a smaller tyre and a sm aller rim: using the sp are wheel ma y cause d ifferent driving behaviour. Replace d efective tyre as soon as possible, bala nce wheel and have it fitted to the vehicle.

Tyre inflation pressures in bar1) The specified ty re pressures are valid for cold ty res. The increased tyre pressure resulting from extensive d riv ing must not be red uced. The specified pressures apply to both summer and winter ty res.
