First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

If the power fails in the vehicle (for example if the battery is discharged) and the vehicle has to be pushed or towed, the manual release mechanism must be used to put the selector lever in the N position.

The manual release mechanism is located under the cover of the gearshift gate on the right-hand side, as seen from the direction of travel. A screwdriver, or other suitable object, is needed in order to unlock the selector lever lock.

Preparation

  • Apply the handbrake.
  • Switch off the ignition.

Removing the cover of the gearshift gate

  • Pull the cover upwards in the area around the selector lever sleeve  .
  • Pull the cover up and over the selector lever  .

Unlocking the selector lever lock manually

  • Push the release lever   in the direction of the arrow and hold it in this position.
  • Press the lock button   on the selector lever and put the selector lever into position N.

WARNING

Never move the selector lever out of the position P if the handbrake is not applied. Otherwise, the vehicle could move unexpectedly if it is stopped on a slope, which could lead to accidents and serious injuries.

NOTICE

The automatic gearbox will become damaged if the vehicle is allowed to roll for a long period of time or at a high speed (for example while being towed) with the selector lever in position N and the engine switched off.
