Fitting and removing the safety net*

The safety net prevents loads from being thrown forward in the passenger compartment in the event of sudden braking.

The safety net is fitted into four mounting points.

For reasons of safety, the safety net must always be fastened and anchored as described below.

The net is made of a strong nylon fabric and can be secured two different locations in the car:

  • Rear fitting - behind the rear seat.
  • Front fitting - behind the front seats.

Warning

Loads in the luggage compartment must be anchored well, and also using a correctly fitted safety net.

Fitting the safety net

Warning

It is necessary to ensure that the upper securing points of the safety net are fitted correctly and that the puller-straps are hooked in properly.

Damaged safety nets must not be used.

Note

With forward mounting, the safety net is most easily mounted via one of the rear doors.

Unfold the safety net with the upper attachment hooks facing up.

Hook one retaining hook of the net into the front or rear roof mounting with the anchoring strap locks turned towards you.

Remove any clothing hooks from the roof bracket by turning it a quarter turn clockwise on the left-hand side and a quarter turn anticlockwise on the right-hand side respectively.

Take care to press forward the net's retaining hooks for each respective roof mounting's front end position.

Rear fitting.

For rear fitting:

With the net fitted in the rear roof mountings, hook the safety net's puller-straps into the front load retaining eyelets in the cargo area.

Front fitting.

For front fitting:

With the net fitted in the front roof mountings, hook the anchoring straps into the outer eyes on the rear of the seat slide rails - it is easier if the backrests are straightened and the seats are moved forward slightly.

Pay attention to make sure that you do not press the seat and backrest hard against the net when they are moved back again - only adjust until the seat or backrest makes contact with the net.

Important

If a seat or backrest is pushed backwards hard into the safety net, the net and roof mounts may be damaged.

Tension the safety net with the anchoring straps.

Removing the safety net

The safety net can be easily removed and folded up.

Reduce safety net tension by pressing the button in the anchoring strap lock and feeding out a little of the anchoring strap on each side.

Press in the catches and detach both of the anchoring strap's hooks.

Undo the upper attachments and release the net from the roof mountings.

Fold up the net and store it in its case.

Refit any clothing hook if required.
