Without lifting (four wheels on the ground)
You must always use a tow bar. From the front or the rear Attach the tow bar to the towing eye. By lifting (two wheels only on the ground) It is preferable to lift the vehicle by the wheels. Special features of the automatic gearboxes When towing with all four wheels on the ground, the following rules mustbe adhered to:
- gear lever in position
- tow the vehicle at a speed less than 30 mph (50 km/h) over a dis- tance of not more than 30 miles(50 km),
- do not add oil to the gearbox. BOOT LUGGAGE CARRIER*
A boot luggage carrier is available
from your PEUGEOT dealer. This equipment is not compatible
with the fitting of a rear spoiler. When it is used, take care not to conceal the third brake light. Follow the manufacturer's recom- mendations.
* Available as an accessory.
TOWING YOUR VEHICLE
Never use the radiator crossmember.
TOWING A TRAILER,
CARAVAN, BOAT etc.
Only use original PEUGEOT tow bars that have been tested andapproved from the design stage of
your vehicle. The tow bar must be
fitted by a PEUGEOT dealer.
Your vehicle is primarily designed for transporting people and luggagebut it may also be used for towing a
trailer. Driving with a trailer subjects the towing vehicle to more significantstress and its driver must beparticularly careful. Air density decreases with altitude, thus reducing engine performance.Above 1000 metres, the maximumtowing load must be reduced by 10% and so on for every 1000 metres of altitude.Driving advice Distribution of loads :
the load in the trailer so that the heaviest items are as close as pos-sible to the axle and the nose weightapproaches the maximum permittedwithout exceeding it. Cooling :
Towing a trailer on a slope increases the temperature of the coolant. As the fan is electrically controlled, its cooling capacity is not dependenton the engine speed.
On the contrary, use a high gear to lower the engine speed and reduceyour speed. The maximum towing load on a long slope depends on the gradient andthe outside temperature. In all cases, pay attention to the coolant temperature. If the warning light comes on, stop
the vehicle and switch off the engineas soon as possible. Tyres : Check the tyre pressures of the tow-
ing vehicle and of the trailer, observ-ing the recommended pressures. Braking :
Towing increases the braking distance. Lights : Check the electrical signalling on the
trailer. Side wind :
Take into acount the increased sensitivity to side wind.
