t  Technical data apply for the unladen weight of the vehicle ready for driving (full fuel tank and water reservoir for the windscreen wiper washer system, spare wheel and jack (if the vehicle was fitted at the factory with them), tool kit and without driver) (unladen weight).
t  Explanations concerning chassis PR Numbers → Chapter
If the corresponding unladen weight cannot be achieved (e.g. a vehicle with a tyre repair set or a vehicle with a fuel tank which is not completely full), the vehicle load must be set as follows:
–  Load the vehicle with a corresponding weight.
–  Determine the fuel volume in the fuel tank on the fuel gauge.
–  Place a weight above the fuel tank according to the following table:
Fuel gaugeWeight (kg)
Tank full0

t  Use as weight e.g. plastic tanks filled with water or canisters. 1 liter of water = 1 kg.
t  When fitting the weight onto the rear seat pay special attention so that the seat upholsteries are not dirty or damaged.
