Towing and recovery

Fitting and removing the towing eye

Обновления 7/23/2018

Use the towing eye if the car shall tow another vehicle. The towing eye is screwed into a threaded socket behind a cover on the right-hand side of the rear bumper.


If the car is equipped with a towbar, there is no rear mounting for a towing eye.

Remove the cover - press on the marking with a finger and, at the same time, fold out the opposite side/corner using a coin or similar.

The cover pivots around its centre line and can then be removed.

Screw the towing eye right in until it stops. Screw the eye in firmly. For example, thread through the wheel bolt wrench* and use it as a lever.
