2.8. Towage of the car

Engines of the cars equipped with catalytic converter of the fulfilled gases cannot be launched towage or pushing. It can lead to an overheat and failure of converter. In case of a discharge of the rechargeable battery do not try to launch the engine towage or pushing of the car.

For towage of the car (or its uses as a tower) fix a cable only in the eyes which are specially intended for this purpose …
… on a lobby …
… and back parts of the car.
Before towage turn on the light alarm system according to Traffic regulations.

The vacuum amplifier of the brake system and the hydraulic booster of steering operate only at the working engine. Therefore consider that circumstance that at towage of the car with the idle engine the effort to pedals of a brake and a steering wheel sharply increases.
