AFTER OFF-ROAD DRIVING

CAUTION

Make sure that the areas around air intakes and the front grille are clean and clear of debris. Pay particular attention to the lower grille, radiator pack and intercoolers. Failure to do so may cause the engine to overheat, leading to severe engine damage.

Make sure that the vehicle, including the underside, is cleaned as soon as possible after driving off-road.

For vehicles fitted with air suspension, raise the suspension to Off-Road 2 to improve cleaning access. See OFF-ROAD HEIGHT.

CAUTION

Make sure all mud and debris is removed from the rear air spring. Failure to do so may lead to permanent damage to the air spring sleeve.

After off-road driving, make sure that the area around the wheel and brake assemblies is clean and clear of debris. Inspect the wheel rims for signs of damage or scoring, and check for unusual brake noise when driving and applying the brakes.

WARNING

Do not drive the vehicle with damaged wheels. Driving with damaged wheels can lead to the loss of control over the vehicle and cause serious injury or death.

WARNING

If any damage is found, or suspected, to any of the brake components or wheels, have the vehicle checked by a retailer/authorized repairer as soon as possible. Driving with damaged wheels can lead to the loss of control over the vehicle and cause serious injury or death.

Autobiography vehicles with a V8 gasoline (405 kW) engine are fitted with brake cooling ducts on the front wheels. Pay careful attention to these areas after driving the vehicle off-road. Make sure the cooling duct (1) is clear from debris. A pressure washer may be used, if required.

For ease of access, start the engine and turn the steering to the relevant full lock. Switch off the ignition.

Check to make sure that off-road activity has not displaced the cooling duct.

WARNING

Blocked, displaced, or damaged brake cooling ducts reduce on-road braking performance. Have the vehicle checked by a retailer/authorized repairer as soon as possible.
