General
information
You

exceptional
cir-
cumstances.

speeds
and
long
distances:
The
maximum
permitted
towing
speed
is
30
mph
(50

Additional
information
on
towing
with
a
tow
truck
The
vehicle
may
only
be
towed
with
the
front
axle
raised.

not
wrap
any
chains
or

Tow
bar
and
towing
cable
The

be
towed
with

Both

should
be
familiar

the
special

ly
when
using
a

cable.
Always
make
sure
the
traction
force
does
not
ex-
ceed

permitted
level

are
no
shock

There
is
always
the
risk of
the

safety

security,
drive
with
a
tow
bar.
You

a
towing
cable
made
of
synthetic
elastic
cable
similar
