Use the towing eye for towing. The towing eye is screwed into a threaded socket behind a cover on the right-hand side of the bumper, front or rear.
Fitting the towing eye
Take out the towing eye from the foam block under the floor hatch in the cargo area.
Front: Remove the cover - use the marking along one of its short sides.
Rear: 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.
After use, unscrew the towing eye and return it to its place.
Finish by refitting the cover onto the bumper.
The towing eye may be used to pull the car up onto a recovery vehicle with a flatbed platform. The car's position and ground clearance determine whether it is possible.
If the slope of the recovery vehicle's ramp is too steep, or if the ground clearance under the car is inadequate, then the car may be damaged if you try to pull it up using the towing eye.
Raise the car using the recovery vehicle's lifting device if necessary.
