Locking and unlocking with the detachable key blade
Pull out the front door handle on the left-hand side1 to its end position so that the lock cylinder become visible.
Insert the key in the lock cylinder.
Turn clockwise 45 degrees so that the key blade is pointing straight back.
Turn the key back 45 degrees to its starting position. Remove the key from the lock cylinder and release the handle so that the rear section of the handle is resting against the car again.
Locking will be performed in the same way, but with an anticlockwise turn 45 degrees instead of clockwise in step (3).
Switch off the alarm and start the car*
Place the remote control key on the key symbol in the backup reader in the bottom of the cup holder in the tunnel console.
Then turn the start knob clockwise and release it.
It is also possible to lock the car with the remote control key's detachable key blade e.g. in the event of a loss of power or if the key's battery has become discharged.
The left-hand front door can be locked with its lock cylinder and the detachable key blade.
Other doors have no lock cylinders and instead have a lock switch on the end of each door which must be depressed using the key blade - they are then mechanically locked/blocked to prevent them being opened from outside.
The doors can still be opened from the inside.
|The door can be opened from both the outside and the inside.|
|The door is blocked against opening from the outside. To return to position A, the inner door handle must be opened.|
The doors can also be unlocked with the unlock button on the remote control key or with the central locking button on the driver's door.
- A door's lock reset only locks that particular door - not all doors simultaneously.
- A manually locked rear door with activated manual or electric child safety locks cannot be opened from either the outside or the inside. A rear door that is locked in this way can only be unlocked with the remote control key or central locking button.
