Seat Ibiza: Handbrake

Seat Ibiza Owners Manual

Using the handbrake

The handbrake should be applied firmly to prevent the vehicle from accidentally rolling away.


Fig. 105 Handbrake between the front seats

Always apply the handbrake when you leave your vehicle and when you park.

Applying the handbrake

– Pull the handbrake lever up firmly ⇒ fig. 105.

Releasing the handbrake

– Pull the lever up slightly and press the release knob in the direction of the arrow ⇒ fig. 105 and guide the handbrake lever down fully ⇒ .


Always apply the handbrake firmly. This prevents you driving with the handbrake applied ⇒   . The handbrake warning
lamp lights up when the handbrake
is applied and the ignition switched on. The warning lamp goes out when the handbrake is released.

WARNING

• Never use the handbrake to slow down the vehicle when it is in motion. The braking distance is considerably longer, as braking is only applied to the rear wheels. Risk of accident!

• If it is only partially released this will cause overheating of the rear brakes, which can impair the function of the brake system and could lead to an accident. This also causes premature wear on the rear brake pads/linings.


Caution

Always apply the handbrake before you leave the vehicle. The first gear should also be selected.

Parking

The handbrake should always be firmly applied when the vehicle is parked. Always note the following points when parking the vehicle: – Use the foot brake to stop the vehicle. – Apply the handbrake. – The first gear should also be selected.

– Switch off the engine and remove the key from the ignition lock. Turn the steering wheel slightly to engage the steering lock. – Always take you car keys with you when you leave the vehicle ⇒ 
.

Additional notes on parking the vehicle on gradients:

Turn the steering wheel so that the vehicle would roll against the kerb if it did start to roll.

• If the vehicle is facing downhill, turn the front wheels so that they point towards the kerb.

• If the vehicle is facing uphill, turn the front wheels so that they point away from the kerb.

• Secure the vehicle as normal by applying the handbrake firmly and selecting first gear.

WARNING

• Take measures to reduce the risk of injury when you leave your vehicle unattended.

• Never park where the hot exhaust system could ignite inflammable materials, such as dry grass, low bushes, spilt fuel etc.

• Never allow vehicle occupants to remain in the vehicle when it is locked. They would be unable to open the vehicle from the inside, and could become trapped in the vehicle in an emergency. In the event of an emergency, locked doors will delay assistance to occupants.

• Never leave children unsupervised in the vehicle. They could set the vehicle in motion, for example, by releasing the handbrake or the gear lever / selector lever.

• Depending on weather conditions, it may become extremely hot or cold inside the vehicle. This can be fatal.
