Fig. 184 Location of the tyre pressure plateFirst read and observe the introductory information and safety warningsвЂ‰
The correct tyre pressure for factory-fitted tyres is shown on a sticker - applies to all-season, summer and winter tyres. The sticker вЂ‰ is located on the inside of the tank flap.
If the tyre pressure is too low or too high, the tyres will wear prematurely and the vehicle will not handle well вЂ‰. The correct tyre pressure is particularly important at high speeds. Incorrect tyre pressure causes premature wear and could cause tyre blow-out.
The pressure should therefore be checked at least once a month and before starting a journey.
The given tyre pressure applies to cold tyres. Tyre pressure is always higher in warm tyres than it is in cold tyres.
For this reason, never reduce the pressure in warm tyres to adjust the tyre pressure. This would result in low tyre pressures that could cause the tyre to burst suddenly.
Checking tyre pressure
The tyre pressure should be checked only if the tyres have not driven more than just a few kilometres at low speed in the last three hours.
The spare wheel or temporary spare wheel are filled to the highest tyre pressure permissible for the vehicle.
WARNINGA tyre pressure which is too high or too low may cause the tyre to suddenly lose pressure or burst while the vehicle is in motion. This could cause accidents and fatal injuries.
Under-inflated tyres will increase fuel consumption.
If the tyre monitoring display warns that the tyre pressure in at least one tyre is too low, check tyre pressures with a functioning tyre pressure tester. Low tyre pressure cannot be determined exclusively by looking at the tyre. This also applies to tyres with a low profile.
Please refer to the special points of the tyre pressure monitoring systems when checking tyre pressures вЂ‰ .
