Предупреждение

Do not press the extend/retract button if a trailer is attached to the towbar.

Примечание

The towbar must finish the extension procedure before it can then be moved to locked position. This procedure may take several seconds. If the towbar is not fixed in locked position, wait a few seconds and try again.
