Recovering a vehicle that has become stuck

Mercedes-Benz GL-Class / Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Owners Manual / Breakdown assistance / Towing and tow-starting / Recovering a vehicle that has become stuck

Pull away smoothly, slowly, and in a straight line when pulling out a vehicle that has become stuck. Excessive tractive power could damage the vehicles.

If the drive wheels get trapped on loose or muddy ground, recover the vehicle with the utmost care, especially so if the vehicle is laden.

Never attempt to recover a vehicle with a trailer attached.

Pull out the vehicle backwards, if possible, using the tracks it made when it became stuck.

Tow-starting (emergency engine starting)

Vehicles with an automatic transmission must not be tow-started. You could otherwise damage the automatic transmission.
