|The contents of this guide are separated into two parts.
|The first part contains information and important notes on the subject of „Trailer operation“. The technical prerequisites for towing trailers or the function of the trailer control unit, for example, are hereby explained.
|Listed in the second part are the trailer loads (braked, unbraked and drawbar load) of the vehicles (categorised according to engine performance) and, where possible, the prerequisites that have to be met to uprate the trailer load on a vehicle.
|Volkswagen vehicles are built according to the latest findings in safety engineering.
|It is therefore recommended that only spares marked as genuine Volkswagen parts are used. It has been established that these parts are reliable, safe and suitable.
|Despite constant appraisal of the market, it is not possible to assess other products on these points, even when in isolated cases they have been passed by official inspectors or have been granted official approval. It is obvious that no liability can therefore be assumed if these products are installed.
