can be fixed, e.g. g., on the vehicle body ÿ .  
Introduction to the topic  
The vehicle can be used to pull a trailer if it has the  
corresponding technical equipment. The additional  
mass towed impacts wear, fuel consumption and  
vehicle power, and under certain circumstances can  
result in shorter service intervals.  
Depending on the equipment, the lighting unit has  
two levels of light intensity:

199 1 . The lighting uintiteinllsuimtyi.nates with the highest  
2. Depending on the version, press the key again  
ÿ fig. 199 1 to lower the intensity to 50%.  
Driving with a trailer puts more effort on the vehicle  
and, in turn, requires more concentration from the driver.  
3. Press the button again ÿ fig. 199 1 to turn off the  
lighting unit.
