Introduction FOR YOUR SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION Warning symbols in this guide How can you reduce the risk of personal injury and prevent possible damage to others, your vehicle and its equipment? In this guide, answers to such questions are contained in comments highlighted by the warning triangle symbol. Note: Important information is also given in paragraphs starting with the highlighted word Note. Warning symbols on your vehicle When you see this symbol, it is imperative that you consult the relevant section of this guide before touching or attempting adjustment of any kind.
RUNNING IN Avoid driving too briskly during the first 1,000 miles (1,500 km). Vary the speed frequently and avoid labouring the engine. This is necessary to give the moving parts a chance to bed in. New tyres require a running-in distance of approximately 300 miles (500 km). During this period, the car may exhibit different driving characteristics. Therefore, avoid driving too briskly during the first 300 miles (500 km). If possible, you should avoid heavy use of the brakes for the first 100 miles (150 km) in town and for the first 1,000 miles (1,500 km) on motorways. From 1,000 miles (1,500 km) onwards you can gradually increase the performance of your vehicle up to the permitted maximum speeds. We wish you safe and pleasurable driving with your Ford vehicle.

When returning the seats to their original positions, make sure the seat belts will function properly and are positioned in front of the seatback.
Seating and safety restraints Transporting luggage
Luggage and other loads should be placed as low and as far forward as possible within the luggage compartment. Driving with the tailgate/rear door open is potentially dangerous as exhaust fumes may be drawn into the vehicle’s interior.
If objects have to be placed in the passenger compartment, secure them with the seatbelts.
Seating and safety restraints SEAT BELTS • Use seat belts at all times. • Never use a seat belt for more than one person. • Avoid wearing thick clothing. • The seat belts should fit tightly around the body. Fastening the seat belts Make sure that each seat belt uses the correct buckle. In order to ensure that the centre belt works properly, the rear seatback must be correctly engaged.
Pull the belt out steadily. It may lock if pulled sharply or if the vehicle is on a slope. Insert the tongue into the buckle until a distinct click is heard, otherwise the seat belt will not be locked correctly. To release the belt, press the red button on the buckle and let the belt rewind completely and smoothly.
Do not recline the front seats excessively as the belts provide maximum protection when the seats are in the near upright position.
Seating and safety restraints The lap strap should be fitted comfortably across the hips, low beneath the pregnant abdomen. The diagonal part of the seat belt should be placed between the breasts, and worn above and to the side of the pregnant abdomen. Always wear seat belts without slack or twists. For optimum protection, the seat belts should fit tightly around the body. Do not recline the front seats excessively, as the belts provide maximum protection when the seats are in the near upright position. Never wear just the lap strap of a lap/shoulder diagonal seat belt and never sit on the lap strap using just the shoulder strap. Both of these actions are extremely dangerous and may increase your risk of serious injury.
Seat belt pretensioner The belt pretensioners must not be removed. If the pretensioners deployed during an accident, they must be replaced. Have the pretensioners serviced and disposed of by specially trained personnel.
The restraint system, with belt pretensioner in the front seat, helps to reduce the risk of serious injury in a head-on collision. During a crash the seat belts are pretensioned to help reduce slack in the belt. The belt pretensioner is only triggered in major frontal collisions provided the deployment threshold is reached and the seat belt is correctly engaged in the buckle. Refer to the section Air bag for further details.
Periodically check the belts for damage or fraying. Do not attempt to repair or lubricate retractor or buckle mechanisms or to modify the belts in any way. Belts subjected to strain – as a result of an accident – should be renewed and the anchorages checked by an expert. Repositioning or uprating radio speakers may adversely affect seat belt operation. For further guidance consult your dealer. For information about cleaning the seat belts, please refer to section Cleaning the seat belts in the chapter Maintenance and care.
AIR BAG The system The air bag system comprises the following: • dual−stage inflatable air bags with gas generators. • side air bags. • seat belt pretensioners. • a variety of crash sensors. • a warning light in the instrument panel. • an electronic control and diagnostic unit. Note: A loud bang will be heard when an air bag deploys and it is normal to see a cloud of harmless powdery residue.
Front air bags The seat and back must be set correctly for the air bag to be optimally effective. Refer to section Sitting in the correct position at the beginning of this chapter. This is the ideal seating position for driver and passenger and helps reduce the risk of injury from sitting too close to an inflating air bag.
Always wear the seat belt and keep sufficient distance between the driver and the steering wheel. Only when the seat belt is used properly, can it hold the body in a position which allows the airbag to achieve its optimum effect. There is a risk of injury when the airbag deploys.
The front air bags activate during major collisions which are either frontal or up to 30 degrees from the left or the right. The air bags inflate within a few thousandths of a second. They will deflate on contact with the front occupants thus cushioning forward body movement.
Do not modify the front of the vehicle in any way as this can adversely affect air bag deployment.
The front air bags are not activated in minor collisions, overturns, rear or side collisions.
Seating and safety restraints Always keep the areas in front of the air bags free. Never affix anything to or over these areas.
These areas should only be wiped with a damp cloth, never with a wet cloth. Repairs to the steering wheel, steering column and air bag system should be carried out by properly trained technicians.
Side air bags
A label on the seatback indicates that side air bags are fitted. The side air bags are fitted on the side of the seatbacks of the front seats. In case of a severe lateral collision, the air bag on the side affected by the collision will be inflated, even if the respective seat is not occupied.
The air bag will inflate between the door panel and occupant. Once the occupant’s body contacts the air bag, the propellant escapes thereby cushioning the impact. The side bags are not activated in minor lateral collisions, front or rear collisions. The crash sensors for the side air bags are located under the outboard side of the seats, fixed to the floor. If water has entered the floor area, do not start the vehicle. Keep the sensors free from water, heavy or sharp objects.
Repairs to either of the front seat covers, the sensors attached to the seats as well as to the roof lining should only be carried out by properly trained technicians. Injuries may result if the side air bags are triggered inadvertently. Do not block, obstruct or cover the air bag because it may prevent proper deployment. Do not poke any sharp objects into the areas where air bags are fitted. This could damage the air bags. Do not use any accessory seat covers that are not specifically designed for seats with side air bags. These seat covers must be fitted by properly trained technicians.
Seating and safety restraints Air bag/seat belt pretensioner warning light
Baby safety seat
When the ignition switch is turned to position II, the warning light in the instrument cluster illuminates for approximately three seconds to indicate that the system is functional. If the warning light does not illuminate, if it stays on or illuminates intermittently or continuously while driving, it means there is a malfunction. Have the system checked by an expert.
Driving direction Extreme Hazard! Do not use a child restraint on a seat protected by an air bag in front of it! Original text according to ECE R94.01: Extreme Hazard! Do not use a rearward facing child restraint on a seat protected by an air bag in front of it! There is a risk of death or serious injury when the air bag deploys.
Seating and safety restraints Whenever installing a child seat/restraint, always read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. There is a risk of death or serious injury when the manufacturer’s instructions are not followed properly or when the child seat/restraint is modified in any way. Do not hold a child on your lap while the vehicle is moving.
Note: • If the vehicle has been involved in an accident, have the child safety seat checked by specially trained technicians as it might be damaged. • Do not leave unaccompanied children in the child safety seat or in the vehicle. • When installing a child seat/restraint with the seat belt, always ensure belts fit without slack or twists.
Children of height 150 cm or under or aged 12 years or under should be secured in special restraints for children, such as baby seats, child safety seats or booster cushions. Such equipment must be suitable and government approved (depending on country). Together with the adult seat belt, these restraints help to provide maximum security for the children.

Never use a booster seat with only a lap belt. Never put the shoulder belt under a child’s arm or behind the back. Never use pillows, books, or towels to boost a child.
Driving direction • Children between three and a half and twelve years and weighing between 15 and 36 kg should use a booster cushion in the rear seat. An adjustable auxiliary belt fixed to the booster cushion ensures optimum routing of the diagonal belt over the shoulder. Make sure that your child sits in an upright position.
Starting GENERAL POINTS ON STARTING Do not operate the starter for longer than 15 seconds at a time or 30 seconds for vehicles with diesel engines. Release the ignition key as soon as the engine has started. If the engine has not started, return the ignition key/ignition switch to position 0 and repeat the starting procedure. If the engine does not start, refer to the instructions regarding the fuel injection system shut-off switch on page 115. Vehicles with a petrol engine If the battery has been disconnected the vehicle may exhibit some unusual driving characteristics for approximately 5 miles (8 km) after battery reconnection. This is because the engine management system must realign itself with the engine. Any unusual driving characteristics during this period may be disregarded.
STARTING THE ENGINE Vehicles with a petrol engine Cold/hot engine • Depress the clutch pedal fully and start the engine without touching the accelerator. • If the engine does not start within 15 seconds, wait for a short period and repeat the procedure. • If the engine does not start after three attempts wait 10 seconds and follow the Flooded engine procedure. • If starting difficulty is experienced at temperatures below −25 ºC, depress the accelerator pedal 1/4 to 1/2 of its travel to assist starting. Flooded engine • Depress the clutch pedal fully. • Slowly depress the accelerator fully, hold it in this position and start the engine. • If the engine does not start repeat the Cold/hot engine procedure.
Engine speed limiter The engine speed is limited electronically to protect the engine.
Vehicles with a diesel engine Cold/hot engine • Depress the clutch pedal without touching the accelerator. • Turn the key to position II and ensure the glow plug indicator light illuminates. Glow plug indicator light off
The engine can be started only with the selector lever in the N or P position. Your vehicle is fitted with an additional selector lever locking device which operates when the selector lever is in the park position. After starting the engine, the lever can be moved out of this position only when the foot brake is depressed and the locking button pressed down. Apply the handbrake or depress the footbrake before selecting a gear. Failure to do so could result in the vehicle pulling away when you have engaged a gear. A cold engine runs at a higher idling speed after starting. This causes a strong ‘creep’ tendency in reverse and all forward gears.
• Wait until the light extinguishes before starting and continue cranking without pausing until the engine starts. • If the engine stalls, repeat the full starting procedure. • At temperatures below −15ºC it may be necessary to operate the starter for up to 30 seconds. If these weather conditions persist, an engine block heater is recommended.
Starting Switching off the engine First let the speed drop to idle ...
... and never depress the accelerator Wait until the engine has reached idle speed, then switch off. If the engine is switched off at high speed, the turbocharger will continue running after the engine oil pressure has dropped to zero. This will lead to premature turbocharger bearing wear.
With the engine idling and the brake pedal depressed, move the selector lever to one of the driving positions. Release the brakes. The vehicle will start to move slowly in the selected direction. Depress the accelerator pedal to increase speed. It is not possible to tow start or push start a vehicle fitted with automatic transmission. Use jump leads attached to a booster battery.
If the driving wheels are stuck, try to rock the vehicle free by driving forwards and backwards. To do this, move the selector lever alternately to D and R and depress the accelerator as little as possible. To increase the effect, move the selector lever to R while the vehicle is still moving forward and vice versa. To avoid excessive wear on the transmission when shifting between forward and reverse (rocking) keep the engine speed as low as possible. As an exception, position 2 may be used for initial drive-off on icy or snowy road surfaces.
The automatic transmission can be made to provide increased torque for steep gradients or for overtaking. To achieve this kickdown effect, depress the accelerator pedal fully and hold it down in the selector lever position D. The transmission will change into the next higher gear when the maximum engine speed has been reached.
Manual gear changes Moving off
Select position 1, release the handbrake and depress the accelerator pedal. Move the selector lever to position 2 and D as the road speed increases. Changing down If the selector lever is moved from position D to position 2 while driving, the automatic transmission will change down to second gear once the speed drops below 70 mph (110 km/h) and remain in this gear. If the selector lever is moved to position 1, the automatic transmission remains in second gear until the speed drops to 28 mph (45 km/h). It will then change down to first gear and stay in this gear. Change down on downhill gradients, long uphill gradients and twisty roads.
Driving Stopping Release the accelerator pedal and depress the footbrake. Leave the selector lever where it is. To move off again release the footbrake. REFUELLING Filling up Refer also to section Fuel in the chapter Capacities and specifications. To avoid fuel spillage that could be hazardous to other road users, always stop refuelling after the fuel nozzle stops the second time. Additional fuel will fill the expansion space in the fuel tank which could lead to fuel overflowing. The fuel system is under pressure. There is a risk of injury if the fuel system is leaking. Do not use any kind of flames or heat near the fuel system.
Incorrect fuel If you fill your vehicle with incorrect fuel or additives, do not attempt to start the engine. This may lead to engine damage. Driving with a catalytic converter • Avoid running out of fuel. • Avoid unnecessarily long engine cranking periods. • Do not run the engine with a disconnected spark plug. • Do not push-start or tow-start the vehicle with the engine at operating temperature; use jump leads. • Never switch off the ignition while driving. Parking It is important to avoid parking, idling or operating the vehicle on dry leaves or dry grass. Even when the engine is switched off, the exhaust will continue to radiate a considerable amount of heat for a short period creating a potential fire hazard.
If your vehicle has a detachable towball arm, always remove it when driving without a trailer. The maximum vehicle and trailer payloads represent technically binding values for gradients up to 12 % and at an altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level. In high altitude regions, thinner atmosphere can reduce engine performance so the following restrictions will apply: Above 1,000 metres the stipulated maximum permitted gross train weight must be reduced by 10 % for every 1,000 metres in altitude.
Never leave the detached towball arm unsecured inside the vehicle. This would increase the risk of injury in an accident.
Steep gradients Change down in plenty of time before downhill gradients. Remember the limited effect of the trailer brakes. Only use the foot brake in short intervals to avoid overheating the brakes. If you have automatic transmission, move the selector lever to position 1 when going up or down steep hills. The overrun brake on a trailer is not controlled by the anti-lock braking system.
To mount the towball arm, remove the cover (3- and 5-door models only) located in the apron beneath the rear bumper. Remove both screws and the cover carefully.
Driving The screws for the cover should be lubricated before and after the winter season.
When not in use the towball arm should always be carried securely fastened in the luggage compartment. The towball arm may be inserted only when the mechanism is unlocked correctly. Special care should be taken when fitting the towball arm, as the safety of the vehicle and the trailer depends on this.
Unlocking the towball arm mechanism
• Remove the protecting cap. Insert the key and turn anticlockwise to unlock. • Pull the handwheel out and turn it clockwise until it clicks. • The red mark on the handwheel must align with the white mark on the towball. • Release the handwheel. The towball arm is unlocked. Do not use any tools for mounting/dismounting the towball arm. Do not modify the trailer coupling. Do not disassemble/repair the towball arm.
Driving Inserting the towball arm The towball arm may only be inserted when completely unlocked.
• To lock: Turn the key in a clockwise direction and remove the key. • Cover the lock with the protective cap. Driving with a trailer Before starting your journey, ensure the towball arm is properly locked. Check:
• Pull out the plug.
• Insert the towball arm vertically and press it upwards until it engages. (Do not hold your hand near the handwheel.) • The towball arm locks automatically. The green area must align with the white mark.
• The alignment of the green area with the white mark. • The handwheel is correctly fitted to the towball arm. • The key has been removed. • Secure positioning of the towball arm. (Must remain perfectly in place when jerked.) If any of the above conditions cannot be met, do not use the tow bar and have it inspected by a dealer.
• Unhitch the trailer. • Remove the protecting cap. Insert the key and unlock in an anticlockwise direction. • Hold the towball arm. Pull the handwheel out, turn it clockwise until it clicks and remove the towball arm. • Release the handwheel. When unlocked in this way, the towball arm can be reinserted at any time.
• Insert the plug into its seat.
• Reinstall the cover (3- and 5-door models only) and the two screws in the apron beneath the rear bumper. • If the system is not used for a prolonged period, set the assembly to its locked position: Press the release lever forwards. To avoid risk of injury, never unlock the towball arm with the trailer attached. Maintenance Keep the system clean. Periodically lubricate bearings, sliding surfaces, and locking balls with resin-free grease or oil and the lock with graphite. Remove the towball arm and protect the seat with the plug before steam cleaning your vehicle. Keep a note of the key number.
When the roof rack is removed from the vehicle, reinsert the plugs into the fixing points. Pull back the rubber sealing from the roof flange to locate the retaining points for the roof rack which are positioned centrally above the doors. (On 3-door variants, the rear retaining points are positioned near the tailgate.) Remove the screw plugs.
Estate with integral roof rack
The side mounting rails are designed such that racks (for bicycles, skis etc.) from the Ford accessories range can be fitted.
Driving The maximum permissible roof rack load is 100 kg. Loads should be evenly distributed on the cross rails and/or the side rails. Never place any loads directly onto the roof surface. 550 mm
BRAKES Dual circuit braking system
700 mm Your vehicle is equipped with a diagonally split dual circuit braking system. If one of the brake circuits fails, the other remains operative.
Note: Lockable cross rails with fitting key from the Ford accessories range can be obtained from your Ford Dealer. Take care not to install the cross rails over the rear area of the sunroof in such a way that it would restrict the tilting mechanism. To minimise wind noise, the two cross rails can be fitted 30 cm apart or be completely removed when they are not in use.
If a brake circuit fails, you will at first experience a softer feel to the brake pedal. You will then need to exert a greater force on the brake pedal and make allowance for increased stopping distances. Have the braking system checked by an expert immediately.
Wet brake discs result in reduced braking efficiency. After leaving a carwash, dab the brake pedal while driving to remove the film of water.
The Brake system warning light remains illuminated when the handbrake is engaged.
The ABS operates only when the wheels are about to lock. Its operation is indicated by a pulsing of the brake pedal and full steering control is retained. Do not release the pedal whilst braking.
If it illuminates after releasing the handbrake or when driving, have the braking system checked by an expert immediately.
Although the ABS ensures optimum braking efficiency, stopping distances can vary greatly depending on the road surface and conditions. Use of the ABS cannot eliminate the dangers inherent in driving too close to the vehicle in front of you, aquaplaning, excessive cornering speed or poor road surfaces.
Driving TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM (TCS)/ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAM (ESP) Traction control system Drivers should never take unnecessary risks even though the Traction Control System offers inherently safer driving potential. Principle of operation
The system may become active when accelerating on a slippery road or loose surface, or when pulling away on a hill. Two different types of Traction Control System are available with this model range. Brake Traction Control System (BTCS) (1.4 l Zetec-SE and diesel engines) This system minimises cross-axle wheel slip to enhance traction at lower speeds. Traction Control System (TCS) (1.6 l Zetec-SE, 1.8 l Zetec-E, 2.0 l Zetec-E and 2.0 l Duratec-ST engines) This system controls wheel slip on the drive axle by a combination of engine torque reduction and brake control (BTCS) to enhance vehicle stability, steerability and traction at all vehicle speeds.
BTCS/TCS indicator light The Traction Control System reduces wheel spin at the driven wheels.
Driving Electronic Stability Program (ESP) Drivers should never take unnecessary risks even though the Electronic Stability Program system offers inherently safer driving potential.
ESP indicator light Principle of operation The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) system helps the driver to maintain the stability and steerability of the vehicle. The system integrates the anti-lock braking (ABS) and Traction Control (TCS) systems with a yaw reduction feature to further enhance the stability of the vehicle.
ESP constantly monitors the vehicle motion relative to the driver’s intended course. This is done by using added sensors that compare the steering inputs from the driver with the actual motion of the vehicle. When the system detects a discrepancy, ESP changes the force at each tyre to help correct it.
Driving If the vehicle begins to rotate excessively left or right, spin out, or slide sideways, the system will attempt to correct the excessive motion. If the vehicle does not respond to steering inputs, the system will attempt to alter the turning response of the vehicle. ESP does not work when the vehicle is travelling backwards. In reverse, the ABS and TCS systems will continue to function. Driving with TCS/ESP
BTCS/TCS indicator light
ESP indicator light While driving, the indicator light flashes during activation of the system (excluding BTCS).
If the indicator light does not illuminate when the ignition is switched on or if it illuminates continuously while driving, it indicates a malfunction. During a malfunction, the system switches off. Have the system checked by an expert. Note: If the system is switched off manually by pressing the Traction Control System (TCS)/Electronic Stability Program (ESP) switch, the indicator light illuminates and remains on until the system is either switched back on or the ignition is switched off.
Driving Switching off the Traction Control System (TCS)/ Electronic Stability Program (ESP) If you are driving with snow chains or a spare wheel fitted, or if you are ‘rocking’ out of snow, it is recommended that you switch off the system.
Note: The Brake Traction Control System (BTCS) cannot be switched off.
BTCS/TCS indicator light
ESP indicator light
The system can be turned off manually by pressing the Traction Control System (TCS)/Electronic Stability Program (ESP) switch.
When the system is off, the indicator light illuminates continuously. Each time the ignition is switched on, the system is automatically selected. For further details, refer to the sections Traction Control System(TCS)/Electronic Stability Program (ESP) switch, Spare wheel and Snow chains.
The system consists of ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper, one controller and a speaker. The system measures the distance to the closest obstacle when reversing and helps the driver to judge this distance correctly by audible signals.
The park distance sensor is an auxiliary system which is not intended to relieve the driver of his responsibility for exercising due care and attention. In particular, some objects close to the vehicle (approx. 30 cm) and above or below the sensors may not be detected by the park distance sensor and cause damage to the vehicle. Ultrasonic waves, heavy rain and/or conditions causing disruptive reflections may lead to objects not being detected by the sensors. In addition, objects which absorb ultrasonic waves may not always be detected due to their unfavourable surface characteristics. The system is activated automatically after the ignition is switched on and the reverse gear is selected. A short tone will sound to indicate system readiness.
Driving A system failure will be indicated by a deep continuous tone or by a deep tone sounding in three-second intervals. In both cases the system is not reliable. Have the system checked by an expert.
Always keep the sensors free from dirt, ice and snow (do not clean with sharp objects).
The measuring range is divided into five warning zones. As the distance to an obstacle reduces, a warning sounds, beginning as a slow bleep and increasing to a continuous tone.
If the engine temperature continues to rise, the system will alternate fuelling to the engine’s cylinders. The disabled cylinders then act as air pumps and help cool the engine.
Press the switch to turn on or off. The hazard lights can be operated when the ignition is off. FAIL SAFE COOLING SYSTEM If the engine coolant supply becomes depleted, this feature allows the vehicle to be driven briefly without damage to the engine. This fail safe distance depends on the ambient temperature, vehicle load and terrain. Principle of operation
When this occurs, the Engine warning light also illuminates. The vehicle will continue to operate but will have limited engine power and no air conditioning capability (if fitted). Continued operation will increase engine temperature and cause the engine to shut down completely.
This is preceded by the Multi-function warning light: automatic transmission/cooling system flashing for 30 seconds. Stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so. If the engine overheats, the temperature gauge will enter the red section and the Multi-function warning light: automatic transmission/cooling system will illuminate.
Roadside emergencies When fail safe mode is activated: • Stop the vehicle as soon as possible. • Immediately turn off the engine to prevent severe engine damage. • Wait for the engine to cool. • Check the coolant level. Refer to the chapter Maintenance and care. • Have the vehicle checked by an expert immediately.
FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM SHUT-OFF SWITCH (vehicles with a petrol engine)
The fuel supply may be cut off as a result of an accident or sudden vibrations (e.g. collision when parking). The switch is located in the side panel in front of the right-hand door. The button will be raised when the switch is activated.
Roadside emergencies Do not reset the fuel pump shut-off switch if you see or smell leaking fuel. Resetting the switch • Turn the ignition switch to position 0. • Check fuel system for leaks. • If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the switch by pushing in the button (see illustration). • Turn the ignition switch to position II. After a few seconds return the key to position I. • Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system.
BULB REPLACEMENT Always switch off lights and ignition before replacing any bulb. Never touch the glass of the bulbs. Fit only bulbs having a UV filter. Always replace a faulty bulb with a new one of the same type. After replacing the bulb, check that the light operate correctly. Have the headlight alignment checked by an expert after each replacement of a bulb. On vehicles fitted with Xenon headlights, have your dealer change the headlight bulbs. There is a risk of injury due to high voltage. Adjusting Xenon headlights The headlights can be adjusted for driving on the left or right hand side of the road by an expert.

BATTERY Maintenance The battery requires very little maintenance. The fluid level is checked during the routine service inspections. Removal and installation If the battery has been disconnected the vehicle may exhibit some unusual driving characteristics for approximately 8 km after battery reconnection while the engine management system realigns itself with the engine. Procedure when starting the engine with jump leads Connect batteries with only the same nominal voltage (12 volts). Use jump leads with insulated clamps and adequate size cable. Do not disconnect the battery from the vehicle’s electrical system.
Roadside emergencies • Connect one end of the second lead to the negative (−) terminal of the booster battery and the other end as far away from the battery as possible to the engine block or the engine mount of the engine to be started. Do not connect to the negative (−) terminal of the flat battery. • Make sure that the jump leads are clear of any moving parts.
To connect the leads
• Position the vehicles so that they do not touch one another. • Switch off the engine and any electrical equipment. • Connect the positive (+) terminal of the flat battery to the positive (+) terminal of the booster battery.
To start the engine • Run the engine of the vehicle with the booster battery at moderately high speed. • Start the engine of the vehicle with the flat battery. • Run both vehicles for a further three minutes before disconnecting the leads. • Disconnect the leads in the reverse order. Do not switch on the headlights when disconnecting the leads. The peak voltage could blow the bulbs.
Roadside emergencies Starting manual transmission vehicles by towing or pushing To prevent damage to the catalytic converter you must not push or tow start your vehicle when the engine is at operating temperature. Use jump leads and a booster battery.
Mount for rear towing eye
It is possible to start the cold engine by towing or pushing the vehicle.
When towing always drive off slowly and smoothly without jerking the towing vehicle. Excessive tow rope tension could result in damage to either vehicle. The ignition key must be set to position II when the vehicle is being towed so that the steering, direction indicator lights and brake lights are fully operational. Since the brake servo and the power steering do not operate with the engine switched off, you will need to exert greater force to the brake pedal and steering wheel. Make allowances for the increased braking distance and heavier steering.
• Turn the ignition key to position II. • Depress the accelerator pedal. • Depress the clutch pedal and select third gear. • Have the vehicle towed or pushed and release the clutch pedal slowly. It may be difficult to start a cold diesel engine by pushing or towing the vehicle, as the cold starting system cannot be activated if the battery is flat.
Roadside emergencies Towing vehicles with automatic transmission When a vehicle with an automatic transmission is towed, the selector lever must be in position N (neutral). Never tow a vehicle with automatic transmission faster than 30 mph (50 km/h) or further than 30 miles (50 kilometres).
Never tow a vehicle backwards with the drive wheels turning. If this instruction is not adhered to, it could cause damage to the automatic transmission. Push or tow starting is not possible on a vehicle fitted with automatic transmission. Use jump leads.
If it is necessary to tow the vehicle a greater distance, the drive wheels must be lifted clear off the ground. The towed vehicle must face forwards when being towed.
Roadside emergencies Emergency park position release lever (Automatic transmission)
With the key (or similar object) push down the locking lever in the slot beneath the cover and simultaneously move the selector lever out of the P position. If position P is selected again, this procedure must be repeated.
A mechanical emergency release lever is provided to enable the selector lever to be moved out of the park position P in the event of a discharged battery or electrical failure. Remove the cover in the centre console next to the selector lever with a flat-bladed screwdriver (or similar object).
Maintenance and care SERVICING • Check and top up fluid levels regularly. • Check tyre pressure. • Check brakes and lights are operating correctly. • Check warning lights. The electronic ignition system works with high voltage. Never touch these components with the engine running or the ignition switched on. The ignition must be switched off before working in the engine compartment. Under some operating conditions, the cooling system fan may continue to run for several minutes after the engine has been switched off. This is quite normal. Take care not to get any fingers or clothing such as ties or scarves caught in the fan.
Maintenance chart Every day check: • Operation of all exterior and interior lights and make sure that all lenses are clean. When refuelling check: • Engine oil level • Brake fluid level • Screen washer fluid level • Tyre pressures and condition (only when cold) Once a month check: • Coolant level (engine cold) • Assemblies, pipes, hoses and reservoirs for leaks • Power steering fluid level • Operation of air conditioning • Operation of handbrake • Operation of horn Note: The air conditioning should be used for at least 30 minutes per month.
• Swivel the Ford badge in the radiator grille to the side and turn the key first anticlockwise . Raise the bonnet slightly and turn the key fully clockwise to open the bonnet. To prevent damage to, or loss of the key, remove the key immediately after opening and swivel the Ford badge back.
• Raise the bonnet and support it in the retainer ensuring it is secure.
To close, replace the support strut in its retaining clip, lower the bonnet and allow it to drop into the catch for the last 20 − 30 cm. Always check to ensure that the bonnet lock is fully engaged.
Maintenance and care Engine oil dipstick The oil consumption of your engine is influenced by many factors. New engines reach the normal value only after approximately 5 000 km. Diesel and high performance engines consume slightly more. Under high loads your engine will also consume more oil. Make sure the vehicle is standing on level ground. Check the engine oil before starting the engine. If the engine was running, switch it off and wait some minutes for the engine oil to flow back into the sump before checking it. Pull out the dipstick, wipe it with a clean, non-fluffy cloth, re-insert it completely and pull it out once more. If the level lies between the marks, there is no need to refill. Hot oil may exceed the MAX mark by some millimetres due to thermal expansion. If it lies at the MIN mark refill using only engine oil meeting the Ford specification. Approximately 0.75 litre (diesel engine 1.5 litre) of engine oil will raise the level of the oil film on the dipstick from the MIN to the MAX mark. Top up to only the upper mark (MAX). For further details, refer to the chapter Capacities and specifications.

Brake/clutch fluid reservoir Do not allow this fluid to make contact with the skin or eyes. If this should happen rinse the affected areas immediately with plenty of water and contact your doctor.
1.8 l DuraTorq-TDCi only (twist-on fit) The oil filler cap is either a screw fit or twist-on fit design. To open, turn the cap anti-clockwise. Do not open the cap while the engine is running. Do not use oil additives or other engine treatments. They are unnecessary and could, under certain conditions, lead to engine damage which is not covered by Ford Warranty. To close, turn the cap clockwise until it clicks.
Brake and clutch fluid systems are supplied from the same reservoir. The level of the fluid must lie between the MIN and MAX marks on the side of the reservoir.
If the level falls below the MIN mark, the brake fluid level warning light will illuminate. Refer to the section Brake system warning light in the chapter Instrumentation.
The coolant should be added when the engine is cold. If coolant has to be added when the engine is hot, first wait 10 minutes for the engine to cool. Initially, unscrew the cap only one quarter turn to allow the pressure to escape. Wait a moment then open it fully. Take great care when adding coolant. Avoid spillage on any part of the engine.
To avoid scalding, never remove the cap from the coolant reservoir when the engine is hot. Do not restart the engine until the problem has been eliminated. The coolant level is visible through the translucent reservoir. The coolant level should be between the MIN and the MAX mark when the engine is cold. Hot coolant expands and may, therefore, extend beyond the MAX mark.
Add only coolant that meets the Ford Specification. For further details, refer to the chapter Capacities and specifications. Engine coolant Do not allow this fluid to make contact with the skin or eyes. If this should happen rinse the affected areas immediately with plenty of water and contact your doctor.
Maintenance and care Do not operate the washer for more than 10 seconds at a time, and never when the reservoir is empty.
Checking wiper blades
The headlight washer system operates only when the exterior lights are switched on and the front screen washer is used. The system is supplied from the screen washer fluid reservoir.
Adjusting screen washer jets
Check the wiper blades on your vehicle for roughness by running the tip of your fingers over the edge of the blade. Clean the wiper blade lips with water applied with a soft sponge. Renewing wiper blades
The eye ball jets can be adjusted precisely using a pin. The washer jet for the rear screen is located on the roof above the rear screen. To ensure the system functions properly, keep the washer jets free of snow and ice. Switching on the heated front screen defrosts both the front screen and the front washer jets.
Lift the wiper arm and position the wiper blade at a right angle to the wiper arm. To remove, press the retaining clip in the direction of the arrow, disengage the wiper blade and pull it off the arm in the opposite direction.
Maintenance and care TYRES For your safety If you have to mount a kerb, do so slowly and, if possible, approach it with the wheels at right-angles to the kerb. Avoid steep and sharp edged obstacles. Do not scrub the tyre sidewalls when parking. Regularly examine the tyre surface for cuts, foreign bodies and uneven wear. An uneven tread wear pattern could indicate faulty wheel alignment. Refer to the chapter Capacities and specifications for permissible snow chains.
WASHING YOUR VEHICLE The best procedure is brushless washing in a good car wash installation. In installations operating with high water pressure, water might be forced into the vehicle’s interior or parts may get damaged. Unscrew and remove the radio aerial before entering an automatic car wash. Switch off the heater blower to prevent contamination of the fresh air filter. If a waxing cycle is selected, please ensure that the wax is removed from the front screen afterwards. Cleaning the headlights To avoid damaging the clear plastic headlight lens do not use aggressive abrasives or chemical solvents. Do not wipe the lights when they are dry or use sharp objects to clean the lenses. Cleaning the rear screen To avoid damaging the heating elements when cleaning the inside of the rear screen use only a soft cloth or a damp chamois leather. Do not use solvent or sharp objects to clean the glass.
Maintenance and care Cleaning seat belts Use interior cleaner or clean warm water. Dry naturally, away from artificial heat. Do not use chemical cleaners, boiling water, bleach, or dye. Do not allow moisture to penetrate the seat belt retractor mechanism. PAINT CHIP REPAIR Paint damage from road chippings or minor scratches can be repaired using aerosol paint spray or touch-up paint. The Ford Accessory range is recommended. Observe the application instruction on each product. To retain vehicle warranty on paintwork, remove apparently harmless looking but often aggressive particles from the paintwork immediately – e.g. bird droppings, tree resins, insect remains, tar spots, road salt and industrial fall-out.
BODY PAINTWORK PRESERVATION Wax the body paintwork of your vehicle once or twice a year. This will help retain the glossy paintwork finish and water droplets will run off more easily. When polishing your vehicle ensure that polish does not come into contact with the plastic surfaces as it may prove difficult to remove. Do not polish the vehicle in strong sunshine. Do not apply polish to front or rear screen, as this may result in poor or noisy wiper action.
