Roof racks and load carriers

Roof rack

WARNINGS:
If you use a roof rack, the fuel consumption of your vehicle will be higher and you may experience different driving characteristics.

Read and follow the manufacturerТs instructions when you are fitting a roof rack.

CAUTION:
Do not exceed the maximum permissible roof load of 75 kilogrammes (165 pounds) (including the roof rack).

Check the security of the roof rack and tighten its fittings as follows: Х before starting.

Х after driving 50 kilometres (30 miles).

Х at 1 000 kilometres (600 miles) intervals.

To minimise windnoise when the roof rack is not in use, cross rails should be moved rearwards and placed together. To reduce fuel consumption, cross rails should be removed when not in use.
