Towing methods when towing other vehicles

Tow bar

The tow fittings used should be on the same side on both vehicles.

Should it prove impossible to avoid mounting the tow bar at an offset angle, please observe the following:

▷ Clearance and maneuvering capability will be sharply limited during cornering.

▷ The tow bar will generate lateral forces if it is attached offset.

Tow rope

When starting to tow the vehicle, make sure that the tow rope is taut.

To avoid jerking and the associated stresses on the vehicle components when towing, always use nylon ropes or nylon straps.

Only secure the tow rope on the tow fitting; Attaching the tow rope correctly
Only secure the tow rope on the tow fitting; otherwise, damage can occur when it is secured on other parts of the vehicle.◀
