WARNING

If you uncouple a trailer with the overrun brake engaged, you could trap your hand between the vehicle and the trailer drawbar.

There is a risk of injury.

Do not uncouple a trailer if the overrun brake is engaged.

WARNING

Vehicles with level control: The vehicle is lowered as soon as you disconnect the trailer cable. This could result in your limbs or those of other people that are between the vehicle body and tires or underneath the vehicle being trapped. There is a risk of injury.

Make sure that nobody is in the immediate vicinity of the wheel housings or under the vehicle when you disconnect the trailer cable.

Do not disconnect a trailer with an engaged overrun brake. Otherwise, your vehicle could be damaged by the rebounding of the overrun brake.

Make sure that the automatic transmission is set to position P.

Apply the vehicle's electric parking brake.

Start the engine.

Close all doors and the tailgate.

Apply the trailer's parking brake.

Detach the trailer cable and decouple the trailer.

Switch off the engine.
