General notes

You can make a connection to the 13-pin socket on the ball coupling using an adapter or, if necessary, an adapter cable. Both can be obtained in a qualified specialist workshop.

Installing the adapter

Make sure that there is enough slack in the cable for cornering so that the cable cannot become detached.

► Open the socket cover.


Open the socket cover.

Insert the connector with lug 1 into groove 2 on the socket and turn the connector clockwise to the stop.

Make the cover engage.

If you are using an adapter cable, secure the cable to the trailer with cable ties.

When the socket is connected, the ultrasonic backing up aid is deactivated.
