WARNING

Flammable material such as leaves, grass or twigs may ignite if they come into contact with hot parts of the exhaust system or exhaust gas flow. There is a risk of fire.

Park the vehicle so that no flammable material can come into contact with hot vehicle components. In particular, do not park on dry grassland or harvested grain fields.

WARNING

If you leave children unattended in the vehicle, they may be able to set the vehicle in motion if, for example, they:

  • release the parking brake

  • shift the automatic transmission out of park position P or shift manual transmission into neutral

  • start the engine

In addition, they may operate vehicle equipment and become trapped. There is a risk of an accident and injury.

When leaving the vehicle, always take the key with you and lock the vehicle. Never leave children unattended in the vehicle.

When the vehicle is parked, always remove the key to prevent the battery from becoming discharged.

Always park your vehicle safely and according to legal requirements and secure it against rolling away.

To ensure that the vehicle is properly secured against rolling away unintentionally:

  • the parking brake must be firmly applied

  • on vehicles with an automatic transmission, the transmission must be in position P and the key must be removed from the ignition lock

  • on vehicles with a manual transmission, first gear or reverse gear must be engaged

  • on steep uphill or downhill gradients, the front wheels must be turned towards the kerb

  • on steep uphill or downhill gradients, the empty vehicle must be secured at the front axle, e.g. with a wheel chock or similar object

  • on steep uphill or downhill gradients, the laden vehicle must also be secured at the rear axle, e.g. with a wheel chock or similar object

On vehicles with all-wheel drive, use the folding wheel chocks more.

Parking brake

WARNING

If you must brake the vehicle with the parking brake, the braking distance is considerably longer and the wheels could lock. This increases the risk of skidding and an accident.

Only use the parking brake to brake the vehicle when the service brake is faulty. Do not apply the parking brake too firmly. If the wheels lock, release the parking brake until the wheels begin turning again.

The brake lamps are not illuminated when you brake the vehicle using the parking brake.

As a rule, you should only apply the parking brake when the vehicle is stationary.

To apply the parking brake: depress parking brake pedal mbsymb6_inv_003b.png firmly.

The mbsymb1a_inv_0063.png warning lamp in the instrument cluster lights up if the engine is running.

To release the parking brake: depress the brake pedal and keep it depressed.

Pull release handle mbsymb6_inv_003a.png.

The parking brake is released abruptly. The mbsymb1a_inv_0063.png indicator lamp in the instrument cluster goes out.

Exceptionally, if the service brake fails, the parking brake can be used to brake the vehicle in an emergency.

Emergency braking: pull release handle mbsymb6_inv_003a.png and gradually depress parking brake pedal mbsymb6_inv_003b.png.

Switching off the engine

../../../../global/pictures_mb/symb_ruf.png

If the coolant temperature is very high, e.g. after driving on hilly roads, leave the engine running at idle speed for about two minutes before turning it off.

This allows the coolant temperature to return to normal.

Stop the vehicle.

Shift the manual transmission into neutral or the automatic transmission to position P.

Apply the parking brake.

Turn the key to position 0 in the ignition lock and remove it.

The immobiliser is activated.

Secure the vehicle to prevent it from rolling away more.

Wheel chock

Use a wheel chock or similar object to prevent the vehicle from rolling away, e.g. when parking or changing a wheel. Mercedes-Benz recommends that you always keep a wheel chock in the vehicle.

Vehicles with all-wheel drive are equipped with 2 foldable wheel chocks. The foldable wheel chocks are located in the base of the co-driver's seat more

To set up the foldable wheel chock: swing both plates out mbsymb6_inv_003a.png.

Swing the lower plate out mbsymb6_inv_003b.png.

Push the lugs of the lower plate fully into the openings in base plate mbsymb6_inv_003d.png.
