Recommended maintenance for camera, sensor and radar units

In order that the cameras, parking sensors and radar units shall work correctly, they must be kept clean of dirt, ice and snow, and be cleaned regularly with water and car shampoo.

  • Do not affix any objects, tape or decals in the areas described below.
  • Clean camera lenses regularly with lukewarm water and car shampoo - be careful not to scratch the lenses.
  • Avoid fitting auxiliary lamps or similar in the grille as this may affect the performance of the front radar unit.
