Before towing, releasing the emergency brake, to install the lever of gear shifting in neutral situation.

Pay attention that the bigger effort for pressing a brake pedal as the vacuum amplifier of brakes works only at the working engine is required. On models with the amplifier of steering the bigger effort for turn of a steering wheel will also be required.


On models with automatic transmission towage is allowed with a speed no more than 75 km/h and on distance no more than 100 km. If one of these indicators needs to be exceeded, then forward wheels have to be lifted above the ground.
