CAUTION
  • Before driving onto a lifting platform, ensure that there is sufficient clearance between low-lying components and lifting platform.
  • Before raising the vehicle on a lifting platform, check that its weight does not exceed the authorised load capacity for the platform.
  • In order to avoid damage to the undercarriage and to ensure that it does not tip over, it should only be lifted at the lifting points shown in the illustrations.

  • If work is to be performed under the vehicle, it must be securely supported by suitable stands.
