Preparations for parking
Interrupting or stopping the parking procedure
The Park Assist system will interrupt the parking procedure if one of the following happens:
WARNINGWhen parking using the Park Assist system the steering wheel will automatically turn the steering wheel quickly. You could be injured if you attempt to touch the steering wheel spokes.
The Park Assist system has system-related limitations. The Park Assist system cannot, for example, help you park the vehicle in tight bends.
If the Park Assist system recognises that there is not enough space to manoeuvre the vehicle, the parking space may still be indicated on the instrument cluster display. You are then not invited to park the vehicle.
If you switch between driving forwards and reversing too early during the parking manoeuvre, i.e. before the permanent signal from the parking distance warning system can be heard, the parking result may not be optimal.
When parking perpendicular to the side of the road, a signal is emitted in order to tell the driver to switch between driving forwards and reversing because the change of direction should not take place in the permanent tone area of the parking distance warning system.
The Park Assist system can also be activated retroactively if you drive past a suitable parallel parking space at a maximum speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) or a perpendicular parking space at a speed of 20 km/h (12 mph) and then press the button.
The progress bar in the instrument cluster display will symbolically indicate the relative distance remaining.
If the Park Assist system turns the steering wheel when the vehicle is stationary, the symbol appears as well. Depress the brake pedal so that the steering movement takes place with the vehicle stationary, keeping the required number of parking movements to a minimum.
A parking space will be regarded as suitable if it is at least 0.8 m longer than the vehicle.
If the parking result worsens after a wheel is changed, the system will first have to learn the new wheel scope. The learning procedure is carried out automatically while the vehicle is in motion. You can support this learning process by driving slowly (less than 20 km/h (12 mph)) through a bend e.g. in an empty car park.
