Towing with all wheels on the ground

Towing with all wheels on the ground

Towing ring fixings are placed at the front and at the rear of the vehicle.

To access them:

- at the front: push on the left to tilt the cover, then remove it.
- at the rear: push at bottom, then pull on top.

The cover remains attached to the bumper by means of a tab, so that it cannot become lost.

The ignition key should be in position "M" so as to retain steering.

Use a bar with hooks to attach on the towing rings.

Vehicles with manual transmission

For vehicles with manual transmission, the gear lever must be in neutral. Failure to observe this requirement can lead to the failure of certain braking components and a lack of braking assistance on restarting the engine.

If the engine is not running, the steering and braking systems will not be power-assisted. If towing another vehicle, the latter should be free-wheeling (that is, gearbox in neutral).
