Cargo net

Updated 7/23/2018

A cargo net prevents cargo from being thrown forward in the passenger compartment in the event of heavy braking.

The cargo net is fitted into four mounting points.

The cargo net is fitted into four mounting points.

For safety reasons, the cargo net must always be correctly fastened and secured. The mesh is made of a strong nylon fabric and secured behind the front seat backrests.

Warning

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

Attaching

Note

The easiest way to fit the safety net is via one of the rear doors.

Warning

It is necessary to ensure that the upper securing points of the safety net are fitted correctly and that the puller-straps are secured properly. Damaged nets must not be used.

Unfold the cargo net and make sure that the split upper rod is locked in the extended position.

Hook one end of the rod into the roof mounting with the anchoring strap locks turned towards you.

Hook the other end of the rod into the roof mounting on the opposite side - the telescopic spring-loaded retaining hooks facilitate alignment. Take care to press forward the rod's retaining hooks for each respective roof mounting's front end position.

Hook the cargo net's anchoring straps into the 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/backrest hard against the net when the seat/backrest is moved back again - only adjust until the seat/backrest makes contact with the net.

Important

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

Tension the cargo net with the anchoring straps.

Removal and storage

The cargo net can be easily removed and folded up.

The cargo net can be easily removed and folded up.

Release the tension in the net by pressing in the button on the anchoring strap's lock and feeding out part of the strap.

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

Unhook the rod from its roof mounting by pulling back on the rod in the roof mountings' rear end position. Press the rod in any direction so that the hook engages in the rod, which at the same time releases the hook on the other side.

Finally, remove the remaining roof mounting hook from the roof mounting.

Break the rod in the centre, fold it together and roll up the net.

Insert the net in the storage bag.

The folded cargo net is stored in its bag in the cargo area.
