Roof-mounted luggage rack

Note

Installation only possible with roof rack.

Roof racks are available as special accessories.

Attachment to the rack

Follow the installation instructions of the roof rack.

Mounting

Be sure that adequate clearance is maintained for tilting and opening the glass sunroof.

Loading

Because roof racks raise the vehicle's center of gravity when loaded, they have a major effect on vehicle handling and steering response.

Therefore, note the following when loading and driving:

► Do not exceed the approved roof/axle loads and the approved gross vehicle weight.
► Distribute the roof load uniformly.
► The roof load should not be too large in area.
► Always place the heaviest pieces on the bottom.
► Secure the roof luggage firmly, e.g., tie with ratchet straps.
► Do not let objects project into the opening path of the tailgate.
► Drive smoothly. Avoid sudden acceleration and braking maneuvers. Take corners gently.
