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.

P4-1646-V40-load net overview

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.

Hook the hooks into the roof mounting with the anchoring strap locks turned towards you.

Thread the cargo net's anchoring straps through 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.

Depress the button in the anchoring strap's lock and thread the anchoring strap from below through the lock.

Tension the cargo net with the anchoring straps.

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

Unhook the hooks from the roof mountings.

Fold up the cargo net and place it in the storage bag in the cargo area.
