First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The positions of the individual driving gears are shown on the gearshift lever  .

In some countries, the clutch pedal will have to be depressed fully in order to start the engine.

Selecting the reverse gear

Shifting down

You should always select the next immediate gear when shifting down gear whilst the vehicle is in motion. The engine revs should not be too high when doing this  . Damage to the clutch and the gearbox could occur if at high speeds or high engine revs one or more gears are skipped when shifting down gear, even if the clutch is not released when doing this  .

WARNING

When the engine is running, the vehicle will start to move as soon as a gear is engaged and the clutch released. This also applies when the handbrake is on.

WARNING

Shifting gears incorrectly to a lower gear can lead to a loss of control over the vehicle, with accidents and/or serious injuries as a consequence.

NOTICE

Serious damage to the clutch and gearbox could occur if the gear stick of the manual gearbox is shifted to a gear which is too low when travelling at high speeds or at high revs. This also applies if the clutch remains depressed and the gears do not engage.

NOTICE

Please note the following points in order to avoid damage and premature wear:
