DIFFICULT OPERATING CONDITIONS, DRIVING ABROAD
The vehicle construction and equipment
is designed for normal operating con-
ditions. This also applies to the frequency
and the extent of the maintenance laid
down in the maintenance schedule.
If the vehicle is used in difficult operat-
ing conditions (e.g. continuous trailer
towing, exceptionally high or low ambient
temperatures, very dusty
conditions,
poor quality fuel, etc.) it may be neces-
sary to carry out special technical pre-
parations, such as using oil of the appro-
priate viscosity, installing special air clea-
ners (cyclone filters), modifying the igni-
tion timing etc. Furthermore the mainten-
ance must also be matched to the ope-
rating conditions.
If the vehicle is to be taken abroad, the
following must also be born in mind:
In many countries there is a large net-
work of V.A.G workshops where your
vehicle can be serviced. Despite this
there are certain countries in which there
is only a limited amount of V.A.G service
or even none at all.
In certain countries it is also possible
that your vehicle model is not sold so that
certain spare parts are not available for
your vehicle or that the V.A.G personnel
is not familiar with the repair procedure
should anything go wrong.
The Volkswagen factory or the Importer
concerned will be only too pleased to
give advice on the necessary technical
preparation of the vehicle, on the main-
tenance required and on the repair pos-
sibilities.
The addresses are given in the vehicle
wallet.
When the vehicle is used in a country
which drives on the opposite side of the
road to the home country the wedge
shaped areas on the headlight lenses
must be masked - see page 100.
