USING SNOW CHAINS

WARNING

Only use traction devices in heavy snow conditions, on compacted snow. Failure to do so may result in accidents causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) must be switched off when using traction devices, to avoid accidents that could lead to serious injury or death.

WARNING

Never exceed 30 mph (50 km/h) when traction devices are fitted. Doing so may result in accidents causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

Never fit traction devices to a temporary-use spare wheel. Doing so may result in accidents causing serious injury or death.

NOTES

When using snow chains, select the grass gravel snow program. See GRASS/GRAVEL/SNOW.

Traction devices approved by the vehicle manufacturer may be used to improve traction in heavy snow conditions, on compacted snow. Traction devices should not be used in off-road conditions where there is no compacted snow.

If it becomes necessary to fit traction devices, the following points must be observed:

  • Only vehicle manufacturer approved traction devices should be used on the vehicle. Only vehicle manufacturer approved traction devices have been tested to make sure that they do not cause damage to the vehicle. Contact a retailer/authorized repairer for information.

  • The wheels and tires fitted to the vehicle must conform to the specifications of the vehicle manufacturer's original equipment. This helps to enhance the performance of the traction devices. See TIRE MARKINGS.

  • Full chain traction devices can be fitted to the rear wheels of vehicles fitted with 19 and 20 in diameter wheels.

  • Half chain traction devices can be fitted to the rear wheels of vehicles fitted with 21 and 22 in diameter wheels.

  • Do not fit a traction device to a temporary-use spare wheel.

  • Fit traction devices in pairs on the same axle.

  • Always read, understand, and follow the traction device manufacturer's instructions. Pay particular attention to the maximum speed and fitting instructions.

  • Avoid tire and/or vehicle damage, by removing the traction devices as soon as the conditions allow.

NOTES

Contact a retailer/authorized repairer for details and availability of approved snow chains.
