Transportation mode: switching off  
The transportation mode is responsible for assuring the  
starting capability of vehicle.  
Battery discharging is reduced by the transportation mode,  
because electrical consumers are switched off.  
All vehicle functions which are not necessarily used during  
vehicle transportation and require no-load voltage or battery  
capacity are switched off with the activated transportation  
mode, with regard to the service life of battery.  
These are especially all functions in the vehicle which can  
reduce the battery capacity when being misused.  
Examples are radios, electronically operated flaps and at‐  
tachments and anti-theft alarm systems which can produce  
faults during transportation.

Transportation devices: removing  
blocking pieces  
On some models blocking pieces are fitted to the suspen‐  
sion strut piston rod.  
The blocking pieces prevent the springs compressing and  
possible damage to the vehicle when being driven onto a  
vehicle transporter or railway wagon.  
The blocking pieces must be removed without reservation be‐  
fore delivering the vehicle. A notice reading “Warning!” and  
attached to the interior rear view mirror highlights this point  
with absolute clarity.  
– Vehicles with blocking pieces fitted to the suspension struts  
have a label hanging from the mirror -arrow-.
