ПОСЛЕ ПОЕЗДКИ ПО БЕЗДОРОЖЬЮ

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, potentially leading to severe engine damage.

Make sure that the vehicle, including the underbody, 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 ВЫСОТА НА БЕЗДОРОЖЬЕ.

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.

The front grille is removable to aid cleaning access.

To remove the grille:

  1. Remove the four securing clips from the grille.

  2. Gently and evenly pull the grille forward to release the four lower clips. Remove the grille. Place the grille where it will not be damaged.

CAUTION

To prevent damage, always keep the pressure washer nozzle at a distance of at least 500 mm from the face of the radiator pack.

To clean the radiator pack and intercoolers through the lower bumper apertures, make sure that the pressure washer nozzle is always at a distance of at least 200 mm from the openings.

To improve aerodynamics, some vehicles are fitted with active vanes that only open when the engine's temperature rises. The active vanes also open when the Air Conditioning (A/C) is switched on. The active vanes must be opened manually to allow access to clean any debris from the radiator pack after off-road driving.

  1. Start the engine. Allow the engine to run for a few seconds. See ЗАПУСК ДВИГАТЕЛЯ.

  2. Switch the engine off.

  3. Switch the ignition on. See ВКЛЮЧЕНИЕ ЗАЖИГАНИЯ.

  4. Select sand mode on the terrain response system. See ИСПОЛЬЗОВАНИЕ СИСТЕМЫ TERRAIN RESPONSE.

  5. Switch the ignition off.

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. 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 a loss of control of the vehicle and can 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/authorised repairer immediately. Driving with damaged wheels can lead to a loss of control of the vehicle and can cause serious injury or death.

Autobiography vehicles with a V8 petrol (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/authorised repairer as soon as possible. Reduced braking performance can lengthen the distance needed to stop the vehicle and can lead to serious injury or death.
