Selecting reverse gear

(vehicle stationary)

Follow the grid marked on knob 1 and, depending on the vehicle, lift the ring against the knob to engage reverse gear.

The reversing lights will come on as soon as reverse gear is selected with the ignition on.


To release

Pull lever 3 up slightly, press button 2 and then lower the lever to the floor.

The warning light } on the instrument panel will go out.

The red warning light on the instrument panel will come on if you are driving with an incorrectly released handbrake.

To apply

Pull the lever 3 upwards and make sure the vehicle is immobilised. The warning light } on the instrument panel will come on.

An impact to the underside of the vehicle while manoeuvring (e.g.: striking a post, raised kerb or other street furniture) may result in damage to the vehicle (e.g.: deformation of an axle).

To prevent any risk of accident, have your vehicle checked by an approved dealer.

Make sure that the handbrake is properly released when driving (red indicator light off), otherwise overheating, or even damage, may occur.

Depending on the gradient and/or vehicle load, it may be necessary when stationary to apply the brake by at least a further two notches and engage a gear (1st or reverse gear).
