Before starting to tow,
turn the ignition key to MAR and then to STOP. Do not remove the key. If the key is removed, the steering lock engages automatically resulting in the impossibility to steer the wheels.

When towing, remember
that without the help of the servobrake and power steering, a greater effort is required on the pedal and steering wheel. Do not use flexible cables for towing and avoid jerks. During towing operations make sure that fastening the joint to the car does not damage the components in contact with it.

When towing the car, you must comply with the specific traffic regulations regarding the tow ring and how to tow on the road.

Do not start the engine
when towing the vehicle.
