3 Ca r radio reception differs from domestic radio reception: As the vehicle a ntenna is rela tiv ely near the ground , the broa dcasting com panies cannot guarantee the same quality of reception as obtained w ith a domestic radio using an overhead antenna. z Changes in distance from the transmitter, z multi-pa th recep tion due to reflection and z shadowing may cause hissing, noise, d istortion or loss of reception altogether.

In fotain men t system 3 The infotainment sy stem is opera ted as described in the operating instructions supplied.

Mobile telephones and radio equ ipment 3 The Vauxhall installation instruc tions and the op erating guidelines prov ided by the telephone manufacturer m ust be observed when fitting and op erating a m obile telephone. Fa ilure to do so could inv alidate the vehicle’s operating permit (EU Directiv e 95/54/EG). Prerequisites for fault-free operation: z Professionally installed ex terior antenna to obtain the ma ximum range possible z Maximum tra nsmission power 10 Watt, z Installation of the telep hone in a suita ble spot (see inform ation on p age 61).

Instruments O btain advice on pred eterm ined installation locations for the ex ternal antenna and equipment holder and w ays of using devices with transmission power of more tha n 10 Watts. We recommend that you consult y our Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, who will ha ve brackets and various installation kits available as accessories and w ill install them in accordance with reg ulations.

For rea sons of safety , we recomm end that you do not use the p hone while driving. Even use of a hands-free set can be a distraction while driving. Be sure to observe any country -specific reg ulations.

9 Warning When used in the vehicle interior, mobile telephones and radio equipment (C B) with integrated antenna m ay ca use malfunctions in the vehicle electronics. Mobile telephones and radio equip ment (CB) should only be used with an antenna fitted on the vehicle exterior.

3 The Vauxhall child restraint system is designed specifica lly for y our Va ux ha ll and thus prov ides optimum safety for your child in the event of im pact. I f a different child safety seat is used, follow the manufacturers’ instructions for fitting and use. The country in which you are d riv ing could req uire the use of c hild restraint system s and specific seats. Follow a ll loc al and nationa l regulations.

Selec ting the rig ht system Your child should be transported facing rearward in the car as long as possible. Change the sy stem when the height of the child is such that the head ex tends over the top of the system and is no longer supported at ey e level. The child’s cervical vertebrae are still very weak. In the event of an accident, they are subjected to less stress in the sem i-prone rea rw ard position than w hen upright.


Not e z Children under 12 yea rs or under 150 cm tall should only trav el in an ap prop ria te child sa fety sea t. z When transporting c hildren, use the child restra int system s suitable for the child’s weight. z Ensure correct installation of c hild restra int system , see the instructions enclosed with the sy stem.

9 Warning

z The covers of the Vauxhall child restraint sy stem can b e wiped clean.

C hild restaint sy stems must not be carried on a p assenger’s lap. Danger to life.

z Do not stick any thing on the child restra int systems and do not cover them with any other m aterials. z Only allow child ren to enter and exit at the side fa cing away from the traffic. z A child restraint sy stem which has been subjected to stress in an accident must be replaced.

Drivin g Hints

Driving Hints

The first 600 miles Driv e y our v ehicle at various speed s. Do not use full throttle. Never allow the engine to labour at low rev s. Make good use of all gears. In all g ears depress the acc elera tor pedal a m aximum of around three quarters of the available pedal tra vel. Do not d riv e faster than three quarters of maximum speed . Do not b rake unnec essarily ha rd for the first 125 miles.

Never coast with engine not run ning Many units w ill not function in this situation (e.g. brake servo unit, power steering 3 ). Driv ing in this ma nner is a danger to yourself and others.

Brake servo unit When 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 significantly greater force is required for braking.

Electric po wer steering 3 If 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 mo untainous terrain or with a trailer/caravan The cooling fan is electrically operated. Its cooling power is therefore independent of the engine speed. S ince a c onsiderab le am ount of heat is generated at high engine speeds and less at slower speeds, do not shift down when climb ing hills whilst the vehic le is still coping with the gradient in the hig her gear.

Driving with a roof load Do not exceed the perm issible roof load and m aximum loa ding height, see pag es 102, 150. For reasons of safety, distribute the loa d ev enly a nd secure it properly with reta ining straps so that it cannot slip . Adjust the tyre pressure to suit the load. Do not drive faster than 75 mp h. Chec k and retighten the straps freq uently .

Switching off the engin e When y ou 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.

Driving Hints Vehi cles w ith turb ocharged engine After running at hig h engine speeds or high engine loads, opera te the engine briefly at a low load or run in neutral for approx. 30 sec onds before switching off in order to protect the turbocha rger.

Save energy – mo re miles Please 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 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 do not de-clutch. To prevent dam age to the cata ly tic converter, overrun cut-off is temp orarily deactivated when the cataly tic conv erter temperature is high. Vehi cles w ith turb ocharged engine Flow -g enerated noises may be aud ible if the a ccelerator is released quickly due to air flow in the turbocharger.


Engine speed


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

Do not place any ob jects in the foot well which could slip under the ped als and inhibit the pedal trav el.

Warm ing up Allow 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.

Correct gear selection Do not race your engine whilst in neutral or with a low gea r selected. Driving too fast in indiv idua l gea rs as well as stop-a nd -g o tra ffic increase eng ine wear and fuel consumption.

Change down When 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 operation Alw ays dep ress the clutch ped al hard to the floor to prev ent shifting difficulties and tra nsmission dam age. When driving do not use the pedal as a foot rest; this will ca use substantial clutch wear.

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

Battery c are When driving slowly or when the v ehicle is stationary , e.g. in slow urban traffic, stopand-go traffic or traffic jams, turn off all unnecessary electrical load s w here possible (e. g. heated rear window, auxiliary headlights, etc.). Declutch w hen sta rting in order to relieve the strain on the starter and the ba ttery.

Energy and environmentconscio us driving

Trend-setting technology When dev eloping and manufac turing your vehic le, Vauxhall used environmentfriendly and pred om inantly recyc la ble materials. The production methods used to mak e y our v ehicle 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 adv anced design mea ns that your vehic le can be easily disassembled at the end of its serv ic e life, and the ind ividual 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 C FC -free.

z High noise levels and exhaust em issions are often a result of driving w ithout due attention to saving energy and protecting the environment. z Y ou should therefore drive with energy in mind – "more miles with less fuel" . Reduce the noise level and exhaust emissions b y adopting an environmentconsc ious driving style. This is ex tremely worthwhile and im proves the quality of life. Fuel consum ption d epend s to a great extent on your own personal d riv ing style. The follow ing hints will help you to achieve fuel consumption as close as possible to the specified levels – see pages 148 to 149. C heck y our v ehicle’ s fuel consumption every time you refuel. This facilitates early detection of any irregula rities causing increased fuel consumption.

Warming up z Full throttle and w arming up at idle speed increase w ear, fuel consumption, ex haust em ission, the am ount of pollutant in the exhaust and the am ount of noise. z Driv e off imm ediately after starting. Wa rm up the engine b y running it at moderate eng ine speeds.

Uniform speed z Hectic driving significantly increases fuel consumption, the ex haust 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, watching the road. 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 .

Idling z 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. Fiv e m inutes of idling corresponds to ap prox imately one 0.6 miles of driving.

Saving fuel, Protecting the environment Overrun z The fuel supply is automatically shut off during ov errun, e. g. when the vehicle is being driven down long gradients or when braking – see page 83. z To enable the overrun cut-off to come into action and sav e fuel, do not accelerate or d eclutch during overrun.

Correct gear selection z High revs increase engine w ear and fuel consumption. z Do not race your engine. Avoid d riv ing at high engine speeds. Making use of the tac hometer 3 helps to save fuel. Drive in a low engine speed ra nge for each gear as much a s possible with uniform engine speeds. Drive as often as possible in top gear, select the next higher gear a s soon as possible, and only chang e down when the engine is no longer running perfectly smoothly .

High speed z The higher the speed , the higher the consumption and the noise level. At top speed, you consume a great deal of fuel and produce excessive noise and exhaust em issions.

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 pressure z 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 loads z The power consum ption of electrical equip ment increa ses fuel consumption. z Sw itch off all aux iliary electrical loads (e. g. air c onditioning 3, heated rear window) when not needed.

Roof racks z Due to air resistance, a roof load can increase fuel consump tion by approx. 3.5 gals/h. z Remove them if they are not being used.


Repair and maintenanc e z 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 might not b e recycled. Contact with some of the materia ls inv olv ed may p ose a hea lth haz ard. z We recom mend that repair and maintenance be entrusted to your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Extreme drivin g conditions z Going up steep slopes, cornering, driving on poor road s a nd winter driving a ll increase fuel consumption. z 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.

Fuel consumption, fuel, refuelling

Fuel c onsum ption

Fuel for petrol engines

Fuel consumption is determined under specific driving conditions – see page 148.

C om mercially availab le high-quality fuel with a maximum ethanol content of 5% as per DIN EN 228 (catalytic c onverter - see pag e 88, octane numbers - see page 146). Fuel quality ha s a dec isive influenc e on power outp ut, running behaviour and service life of the engine. The additives contained in the fuel pla y an important role in this regard. You should therefore only use high-quality fuels containing additives.

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, friction between the engine and transmission components is higher. This increases fuel consumption.

Fuels with ethanol content greater than 5% do not comp ly with DIN EN 228 and m ust not be used unless the vehicle has been spec ifically dev eloped and ap prov ed for use of such. Fuel with too low an octane number can cause ping ing. Va ux ha ll cannot b e held liable for resulting damage. Petrol with a hig her octane number can alway s be used . 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 is automatically adjusted according to the grad e of fuel used (octane num ber) – see page 146. Use of petrol with an octane rating of 95 will ensure economical driv ing.

Roof racks, caravan and trailer towin g 3 Use only towing equipment tha t has b een approved for y our vehicle. We recommend entrusting the retrofitting of tow ing equipm ent to y our Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, who will advise y ou on any possible towed load increases. Your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer ha s instructions on how to install the towing equipm ent and m ake any necessary changes to the vehicle that affect the cooling sy stem, heat shields or other equipm ent.

Caravan/trailer loads 1)

Mounting dimensions of towing eq uipm ent – see pa ge 157.

The permissible caravan/trailer loads for your vehicle are given in the vehicle docum ents. Unless otherwise stated, they are v alid for gradients up to ma x. 12 %.

Towing equipment

The permissible caravan/trailer loads are vehicle-dependent and eng ine-dependent maximum values which must not be exc eeded. The actual c aravan/trailer load is the difference between the actual g ross weight of the caravan/trailer and the actual coupling socket load w ith the caravan/trailer coupled. When the caravan/trailer load is being checked, therefore, only the carava n/trailer wheels – and not the jockey wheel – must be standing on the weighing app aratus.

The permissible caravan/trailer load should be fully utilised only by d riv ers who are adeq uately experienced in towing large or heavy caravans/trailers.


Obs erve na tiona l reg ula tio ns.


The permitted carava n and trailer load app lies up to the specified incline and up to an altitud e of 1000 metres above sea level. S ince engine power decreases as altitud e increa ses b ecause of the air becoming thinner, therefore reducing climb ing ability, the permitted towing weight also decreases by 10 % for every 1000 metres of add itional altitude commenced. The towing weight d oes not have to be reduc ed when driving on roads with slight inclines (less than 8%, e. g. motorways). The actual caravan/trailer load p lus the actual g ross weight of the towing vehicle must not ex ceed the maximum permitted towing weight. For exa mple, if the permitted gross vehicle weight is utilised, the trailer/carav an load must only be used until the ma ximum permitted towing weight is reached . The maximum permitted towing weight is shown on the identification plate, see page 144.


Roof racks, caravan and trailer towing

Coupling so cket load

Driving characteristics, towing tips

The c oupling socket load is the load exerted by the trailer/caravan on the coupling ball. It can b e varied by changing the w eight distribution when loa ding the trailer/caravan.

In the ca se of trailers/caravans with brake, attach break away stopping cable to eye at the side on the coupling ba ll bar. Before attaching the trailer/carav an, lubricate the ball of the trailer/caravan towing device. However, do not lubricate the ball if a stabiliser, w hich a cts on the coupling ball, is b eing used to d amp snaking.

The ma ximum permissible coup ling socket load (35 kg) for the towing vehicle is stated on the type plate of the towing equipment and in the vehicle documents. Alway s aim for this. The coupling load should nev er be less than 25 k g. When mea suring the coup ling socket load, mak e sure that the drawbar of the loa ded trailer/caravan is at the sa me height as it will be when the trailer/caravan is coupled with the towing vehicle load ed. Particularly important for trailers/carav ans w ith tandem axle.

Rear axle load during to wing When the caravan/trailer is coupled and the towing v ehicle fully loaded (including all occupants), the p ermissible rea r axle load (see identifica tion plate, page 144, or vehic le documents) ma y be exceeded by 15 kg and the perm issible gross vehicle weight by 27 kg . I f the perm issible rear axle load is ex ceeded , a m aximum speed of 50 mph (80 km/h) applies. I f na tional reg ulations specify a lower m aximum speed for vehicles towing a caravan/tra iler, this must be observed.

Picture no: 9358t.tif

Tyre pressure

Increase the tyre pressure on the towing vehicle to the v alue specified for a full load – see page 152. Also check the p ressure of the spare wheel and carava n/trailer wheels.

C heck c aravan/trailer lighting before starting to drive. The fog tail lig hts on the vehicle a re deactivated when towing a carav an or trailer. Trailers with LED turn signals m ust have a provision enables light m onitoring for comm ercial bulbs. Turn signal control indicator – see page 19.

Roof racks, caravan and trailer towin g Handling is greatly influenced by the loading of the trailer/carav an. Loads should therefore be secured so that they cannot slip and be placed in the c entre of the trailer/carav an if possible, i.e. above the a xle. In the case of trailers/c aravans with low direc tional stability, a speed of 50 mph (80 k m/h) should not be exceed ed; the use of a stabilizer which functions acc ording to the friction principle is strongly recom mended. Do not drive faster tha n 50 mph (80 km/h) if possible, even in c ountries where higher speeds are p ermitted . Make sure that y ou hav e enough room when c ornering and avoid sudden manoeuv res. If the tra iler/ca ra van starts to sway , drive more slowly, do not attem pt to correct the steering and brake sharply if necessary. If it is nec essary to apply the brak es fully , depress the brake pedal as hard a s possible. Remem ber that the braking distance for vehic les towing caravans/trailers w ith a nd without brake is a lways grea ter than that for vehicles not towing a caravan/trailer.


When driving downhill, towing a cara van/ tra iler subjects the b rakes to a heavier load than normal. For this reason, select the sam e gea r as when driving uphill and drive at a similar speed. 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 v ehicle is still coping with the gradient in the higher g ear. Diesel engine: O n gradients of 10 % or more, do not drive fa ster tha n 20 mph (30 km/h) in 1st gear or 30 mph (50 k m/h) in 2nd g ear.

Picture no: 11804h.tif

Starting o n inclines

The most fav ourable eng ine speed when starting off on a n incline is between 2500 and 3000 rpm for petrol eng ines and between 2000 and 2500 rpm for diesel eng ines. Hold engine rpm constant, ease the clutch out grad ually , release b ra ke – and open throttle. If p ossible, the engine speed should not d rop during this procedure. Before starting off under ex treme conditions (high combination weight, mountainous terrain w ith steep inclines), switch off all unnecessary electrical loads (e.g. heated rear window, air conditioning system 3).

Starting Do not sta rt wit h quick charger This prevents d amage to electronic components. Do not sta rt by pushing or towing Because your vehicle is fitted with a cataly tic converter, it must not be started by pushing or towing – see page 88. The v ehicle can only be started using jum p leads – see follow ing page.



z Use auxiliary battery with sam e v olta ge (12 volts). Its capacity (Ah) m ust not be considera bly less than that of the discharged ba ttery. Voltage and capacity information can be found on the batteries.

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

9 Warning

z Use jump leads with insulated terminals and a cross section of at least 16 mm2 .

This must be d one with extreme care. Any deviation from the following instructions could lead to personal injury or d amage resulting from ba ttery explosion, as well as to dam age to the electrical systems in both v ehicles.

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 Never ex pose the b attery to nak ed flames or spark s.

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

z A discharged battery can freeze at temperatures below 0° C or as high as 0° C . Defrost the ba ttery b efore connecting jump leads.

z Do not touch the vehicles while jump starting.

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 Apply hand b ra ke. Transmission in neutral.


Self-help 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 Start the engine of the vehicle providing the jump start. z After 5 minutes, start the other engine. Start attempts should b e m ade at intervals of 1 m inute and should not la st longer than 15 seconds.

Connect the lea ds in the order shown in the illustration: 1. Connect one end of the first jump lead to the positiv e 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 negativ e 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 After starting, allow both engines to idle for approx. 3 minutes with the leads connected. z In order to avoid excess v oltage in the electrical system, before remov ing a lead, switch on an electrical consum er (e. g. light, heated rear window) in the vehicle receiving the jump start. z Reverse above sequence ex actly when rem oving lead s.

Towing the vehicle The towing eye is located behind a flap. To open, release the fla p at the bottom and pull downward. To close, position the flap at the top and engage at the bottom. Attach a tow rop e 3 – or better still a tow rod 3 – to the towing ey e. The tow ing eye is only to be used for towing, not for rec ov ery.

Self-help Switch on ignition to release steering column lock and to permit operation of brake lights, horn a nd windscreen w ip ers. Manual transm ission in neutra l. Drive slowly . Do not drive jerkily . Ex cessive tractive forc e ca n damage the vehicle.

9 Warning Significa ntly greater force is required for braking: the brake servo unit is only op erational when the engine is running. Considerably g reater steering force is necessary since this unit is operative only when the engine is running.


To prev ent the entry of exhaust fumes from the towing vehic le, switch on the air recirculation sy stem and close the wind ow s. Consult a work shop. We recom mend y our Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, w ho w ill serve you best to get your vehicle ba ck on the road.

Towing service Entrust y our v ehicle only to the towing service of your choice and obta in a n estimate of towing costs before employing any towing service. In this way you avoid unnec essary costs and p ossible insura nce prob lems during claim proc essing.

Towing another vehicle Towing eye at rea r in centre, below the bumper. Attach tow rope 3 – or, better still, tow rod 3 – to the towing ey e, never to the rear ax le. Drive off slowly and avoid jerky mov ements. Imperm issible trac tiv e forces could da mage the vehicles.

A note on safety

Alw ays switch ignition off w hen perform ing checks in the engine c om partment (e.g. checking the brake fluid lev el or the engine oil level) due to risk of injury from liv e c ables and rotating parts.

9 Warning The cooling fan is controlled by a thermoswitch and ca n 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.

Picture no: 16191h.tif

N ever carry out any repairs or adjustment and m aintenance work on the vehicle y ourself. 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 y ourself and other road users.

Engine oil

Information on engine oils is available in the S ervice Booklet. Eng ine oi l level, engine oil consump tion Ev ery engine consumes engine oil for tec hnical reasons. The engine oil consump tion cannot be assessed until a fairly long distance has been driv en, a nd may be a bove the specified value when the vehic le is first b eing driven (run-in period ). Frequent d riv ing at high revs increases engine oil consumption. In vehicles with engine oil lev el check 3, the engine oil level is checked automatically. It is particularly adv isable to check the engine oil level before emb arking on a long journey.

Pict ure no: 16193h.tif

Engine oil l ev el chec k, topping up engine oil The illustrations show chec king and top ping up of various petrol and diesel engines. The oil lev el m ust be check ed with the vehicle on a level surface and with the engine (which m ust be at operating temperature) switched off. Wait at least 5 minutes before c hecking the level to allow the normal engine oil acc um ulation in the engine to drain into the oil pan.

9 Warning Do not allow the engine oil level to drop below the m inimum level!

Picture no: 15155h.tif

To check the engine oil level, insert wiped oil dipstick into handle as fa r as it will go. Top engine oil up if the level has dropped into the range of the top-up m ark MI N. The engine oil level must not exceed the upper mark MAX on the dipstick. Excess eng ine oil must be drained off or extracted. If the engine oil level is above the M AX ma rk there is a risk of damage to the eng ine or the catalytic converter. The amount filled must be between the MI N and MA X marks – see pag e 155.

Maintenance, Inspection System

Coolant During operation the sy stem is pressurized. The tempera ture may therefore rise briefly to over 100 °C . The g ly col-based c oolant provides excellent corrosion protection for the heating a nd cooling systems as well as anti-freez e protection d ow n to -28 °C . It rem ains in the cooling sy stem throughout the y ear and need not be changed. Certain anti-freezes can lea d to engine dam age. We therefore recommend the use of anti-freez es that have been approved by Vaux hall.

9 Warning Antifreeze is a d ang er to health; it must therefore be k ept in the original conta iner and out of the reach of children.

Picture no: 12952h.t if

Frost and c or rosi on p rotection Before the sta rt of the cold weather season, have the coolant checked for correct concentration using a calibrated hydrometer. We recom mend that you consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repa irer. The anti-freeze content must guarantee frost protection down to approx. -28 °C . An insufficient concentration will reduce frost and corrosion protection. Add anti-freez e if nec essary . If c oolant loss is topped up with wa ter, have anti-freeze c oncentration checked and a dd anti-freeze if necessary.

Mainten ance, Inspection System


After topping up with tap or distilled wa ter, have the anti-freeze concentration checked , and anti-freeze added if nec essary . Hav e the cause of the coolant loss remedied. We recommend tha t you consult y our Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. To close, position the cap and screw it into place. C ool ant temp era ture If the temp erature g auge is in the upp er warning zone, coolant temp erature is too high. C heck the coolant level imm ediately.

Pi cture no: 12519h.tif

Coola nt level Hardly 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 exp ansion tank should be just abov e the marking KALT/CO LD or between LO W and FU LL in diesel engines with the c ooling system cold. It rises when the engine has warmed up and drops again as the engine cools. I f it falls b elow the m arking KALT/CO LD or b elow LOW during this, top up to just a bove the marking KALT/C OLD or between LOW and FULL.

Pict ure no: 16194h.tif

9 Warning

Allow engine to cool down before rem oving coola nt filler cap . Rem ov e filler cap carefully so that p ressure can escape slow ly, otherwise there is a risk of scalding. Top up anti-freeze. I f no anti-freeze is available, top up w ith c lean tap water. If tap water is unav ailable, distilled water can be used.

z Coolant level too low: Top up coolant. Pay attention to the instructions giv en under "Anti-freeze and corrosion protection" and " Coolant level". Have the cause of coolant loss remedied . We recommend that you consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. z Coolant level O K: Have the c ause of inc reased coolant temperature remed ied. Contact a workshop. We rec om mend that you consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.


Maintenance, Inspection System Use of certain b ra ke fluids could lead to damage or red uc ed b ra king effec t. Stay well informed! We recommend the use of Vauxhall-app rov ed high perform ance brake fluid when necessary. Extreme cleanliness is im porta nt as b rake fluid c ontamination could cause b rake sy stem malfunction. After correcting the brake fluid level, have the cause of brake fluid loss remedied . We recommend that you consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Brake fluid

Brak e fluid level

9 Warning Bra ke fluid is poisonous and corrosive. Do not allow it to contac t ey es, skin, fabrics or painted surfa ces. Direc t conta ct may cause injuries a nd damage. The fluid level in the reserv oir must b e neither higher than the MAX m ark nor lower than the MIN mark.

Brak e fluid cha ng e Brake fluid is hygrosc op ic , i. e. it a bsorbs water. If the brakes become hot, such as when driving on long downhill stretches, va pour b ub bles can form in the water, which can hav e an a dverse effect on brak ing power (depending on the proportion of water). The fluid c hange interva ls specified in the S ervice Booklet m ust therefore be observed.

9 Warnin g We recommend that you have brak e fluid chang ed b y a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer, who will b e familiar w ith the requirem ents of the law a s regards disposal of brake fluid and ca n thus help to protect the environment a nd your health.

Windscreen wiper Clear vision is essential for safe driving. The cleaning effect of the wind screen w iper should therefore be checked at reg ular intervals. We recomm end replacing the wiper blades at least once a year. If the windows are dirty, operate the windscreen wash before switching the wiper on in ord er to prevent w iper blad e wear. Do not switc h wind screen wiper on if windows are icy, since this may dam age the w iper edges or the wiper sy stem. If the wiper becomes frozen onto the glass, we recommend tha t it be released with the aid of Vauxhall De-icer S pray. Sm earing w ip er b la des ca n be clea ned w ith a soft cloth and Vaux hall Windscreen Wash Solvent. Wiper b la des whose lips have become hardened, cracked or c ov ered with silicone must be replaced.

Win dscreen wash system

The fluid c ontainer for the windsc reen washer system and the rear window washer system is located on the rig ht-hand side of the engine compartment (viewed from the front of the vehicle).


Maintenance, Inspection System

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.

Parking the vehicle for more than 4 week s can discharge the battery. This ca n shorten the life of the battery. Therefore d isconnect the battery by d isconnecting the negative term ina l from the on-board power sup ply.

The w indscreen washer system will not freeze in winter:

Ensure that ig nition is switched off before connecting ba ttery. Failure to do so could result in the engine not being able to start or eng ine opera ting prob lems. Time and date must be set in the information disp lay after the battery is reconnected.

Vehicle care Washin g The paintwork of your v ehicle 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 v ehicle 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. If using a car w ash, comply w ith the pertinent instructions of the ca r wash manufacturer. The windsc reen w ipers and rea r window wiper must be in their park position – see pa ge 12. Remove antenna 3 and roof rack 3. S tand on the door sill to rea ch them m ore easily. If y ou w ash y our v ehicle 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. Observ e national regulations.

Waxing Wax 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.

Polishing Polishing is necessa ry only if the paint has become dull or if solid deposits have become attached to it. Pa intwork polish with silic one form s a protective film , ma king waxing unnec essary . Plastic body parts should not be treated with wax a nd polish. Use Metallic Paintw ork Wa x on vehic les with a metallic-effect paint finish.


Wheels Use 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 Preserv er.

Paintwork damage Repair small areas of paint damage such as stone impac ts, scratches etc. imm ediately using an Va ux ha ll touch-up app lic ator or Vauxhall spray and touch-up paint before rust can form. If rust has already formed , have the cause remedied . We recommend that you consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. Please also pay attention to surfaces and ed ges beneath the vehicle where which rust m ay have formed unnoticed for some time.


Veh icle c are

Exterio r lights

Wheels and tyres

Headlight 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 C ar Shamp oo. Do not use any ab ra sive or caustic agents, do not use an ice scraper, and do not clean them dry.

Do not use high-pressure jet clea ners.

Plastic and ru bber parts

In terior and uph olstery Clea n the vehicle interior, including the instrument panel fasc ia , using interior cleaner. The instrument panel should only be cleaned using a soft da mp cloth.

For additiona l cleaning of plastic and rubber parts use Interior Cleaner. Do not use any other agent, and in particular do not use solv ents or petrol.

Clea n fa bric upholstery with a va cuum cleaner and brush. To remove stains, use cleaner that is suitable for both fabrics a nd vinyl.

Do not use high-pressure jet cleaners.

Do not use cleaners such as acetone, carbon tetrachloride, paint thinner, paint remover, nail va rnish remov er, w ashing powder or bleach. Petrol is also unsuita ble. Open velc ro fa stenings in your clothing could damage the seat cushions. Close velcro fastenings.

Seat belts Alw ays keep seat belts clean and dry. Clea n only with luk ewarm water or C leaner.

Win dows When cleaning the hea ted rear window, ma ke sure that the heating element on the insid e of the window is not damaged. Use a soft lint-free cloth or chamois leather in conjunction with Window Cleaner a nd Insect R emover. Vauxhall Cleaning Solvent and Antifreeze is suitable for de-icing windows. For mec ha nical removal of ice, use a comm ercially available sharp-edged ice scraper. Press the scraper firmly against the glass so that no dirt can get under it and scratch the glass.

Win dscreen wiper blades Wax such as the wax used in car washes can c ause sm earing on the wind screen when the windscreen wipers are sw itc hed on. S mearing wiper blades c an be cleaned with a soft c loth and Vauxhall Clea ning S olv ent and Antifreeze. Rep la ce them if necessary – see page 137.

Vehicle care Locks The locks are lubrica ted with a high-grade lock cy lind er grease at the factory. Vauxhall lock cylinder grease prevents the locks from freezing up. O nly use de-icing agent in emergencies, as they hav e a degreasing effect and will im pair the func tion of the lock s. After using a de-icing agent, have the locks re-greased. We recom mend that y ou entrust this to your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

Engine co mpartment Areas of the engine compartment that are painted in the same colour as the vehic le must be looked after lik e any other p ainted surface. It is adv isable to wash the engine compartment before and after winter and preserve it with wax. Cover alternator and brake fluid reserv oir with plastic sheets before washing the eng ine. When washing the engine with a steam-jet cleaner, do not d irect the steam jet at components of the Anti-lock Brak e Sy stem 3 , the automatic air conditioning system 3 or the b elt drive and its components.

Protective wax that has been ap plied is also removed during the engine wash. For this reason, have the engine, brak e system components in the engine compartment, axle com ponents with steering, body parts and cavities thoroughly preserved with protective wax after the wash. We recommend that you consult your Vauxhall Authorised Repairer. An engine w ash ca n be p erformed in the spring in order to remov e dirt that has adhered to the engine comp artment, whic h may also have a high salt content. Check protectiv e w ax la yer and ma ke good if necessary. Do not use high-pressure jet clea ners.

Underbody Your vehicle has a factory-app lied PVC undercoating in the wheel arches (including the longitudinal mem bers) which prov ides permanent protec tion and needs no special maintenance. The surfaces of the vehicle underbody not covered by PVC are provided with a durable p rotective wax coating in critic al areas.


O n vehicles w hich are washed frequently in automatic c ar washes with underbody washing facility, the protective wax coating may be im paired by dirt-dissolving add itiv es, so check the underb od y after washing and have it wax ed if necessary. Before the sta rt of the cold weather season, check the PVC coating and protectiv e wax coating and, if necessary, ha ve them restored to perfect condition. C aution - c om mercially available bitumen/ rubber materials can damage the PVC coating. We recom mend that y ou ha ve underbody work ca rried out by an 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 remov e any dirt adhering to the underbody since this may also contain salt. C heck p rotective wax c oa ting and , if nec essary , have it restored to perfec t condition.

Fuel consumption, CO 2 emission

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

The direc tiv e is oriented to actual driving practices: urban d riv ing is ra ted at approx. 1/ and off-road driving with ap prox . 2 / 3 3 (urban a nd ex tra-urban c onsumption). Cold starts and acceleration phases are also tak en into consideration. The specification of CO 2 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. All values are b ased on the EU base model with standard equipment. The calculation of fuel consumption as spec ified by directive 1999/100/EC takes acc ount of the v ehicle’ s kerb weight, ascertained in accordance with the said regula tion. Optional ex tras may result in slightly higher fuel consumption and CO 2 emission lev els than those quoted. S aving fuel, p rotecting the environm ent see page 84.

Weights, payload and roof load Payload is the difference between the permissible gross vehic le weight (see identification plate) and the EC k erb weight. To calculate the kerb weight, enter the data for y our vehicle below: z Kerb weight from Ta ble 1, page 151

+ .... .... .... .. kg

z Weight of heavy accessories from Table 2, page 151 + .... .... .... .. kg The total

= .... .... .... .. kg

is the EC k erb w eight. O ptional equipment and accessories increase the kerb weight, which m eans that the p ayload will also change slig htly. Note the weights given in the vehicle documents and the identification plate.

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. When a trailer/caravan has been coupled and the towing v ehicle is fully lad en (including occupants), the p ermissible rear axle load (see identification plate for specification) m ay be exceeded by 15 k g and the permissible gross v ehicle weight may be exceeded by 27 kg. I f the permissib le rear axle load is exceeded, a maximum speed of 50 m ph applies. If na tional regulations specify a lower maximum speed when towing, this must be ob served. See the identification plate or v ehicle docum ents for permissib le ax le loads.

Roof loa d The permissible roof loa d is 35 kg. The roof load consists of the weight of the roof rac k plus the load carried. The height of the loa d – measured from the roof rail – m ust not exceed 50 cm. Driving hints – see page 82.
