Selector lever positions
P - Parking lock
The driving wheels are locked mechani-
cally.
The parking lock may only be engaged
when vehicle is standing still. To move
lever into and out of the "P" position the
safety catch in lever handle must be
pressed.
R - Reverse gear
The reverse gear must also be engag-
ed when vehicle is stationary and the
engine idling. Before "R" can be engaged
the safety catch in lever handle must be
pressed.
N - Neutral
D - Normal driving position
The three forward gears are shifted up
and down automatically according to
throttle opening and road speed.
2 - Position for hilly stretches
The 1 st and 2nd gears are shifted up and
down automatically according to throttle
opening and road speed. The 3rd gear
is not used. This increases the engine
braking effect.
The road speed must not exceed 90 km/h
(56 mph).
The lever can be moved from "D" into
"2" with accelerator pedal depressed.
However as the shift into 2nd gear takes
place immediately this must only be
done at speeds below 85 km/h.
1 - Position for steep hills
To engage this gear, the catch in lever
handle must be pressed. The vehicle re-
mains in 1st gear and 2nd and 3rd gears
are not used. This gives maximum possi-
ble engine braking effect.
The road speed must not exceed 50 km/h
(30 mph).
The lever can be moved from "2" into "1
with accelerator pedal depressed. How
ever as the shift into 1st gear take
place immediately this must only b
done at speeds below 45 km/h.
Kick-down device
The kick-down device gives maximum
acceleration. When the accelerator pe
dal is pressed right down past the fu
throttle position, depending on roa
speed and engine speed, either the up
shift is delayed (forced throttle) or th
box changes down into the next lowe
gear.
