Pulling a stuck vehicle

Pulling a stuck vehicle

If your vehicle is stuck in sand, snow, mud, etc., use a tow strap or other device designed specifically for vehicle recovery. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the recovery device. Attach the tow strap to the recovery hook.

CAUTION
► Tow chains or cables must be attached only to the main structural members of the vehicle or the towing hooks. Otherwise, the vehicle body will be damaged.
► Use the towing hook only to free a vehicle stuck in sand, snow, mud, etc. Never tow the vehicle for a long distance using only the towing hook.
► The towing hook is under tremendous force when used to free a stuck vehicle. Never pull the hook at an angle.
► Always pull the cable straight out from the front or rear of the vehicle.
► Pulling devices should be routed so they do not touch any part of the suspension, steering, brake or cooling systems.
► Pulling devices such as ropes or canvas straps are not recommended for use in vehicle towing or recovery.

Rocking a stuck vehicle

If your vehicle is stuck in sand, snow, mud, etc., use the following procedure: 1. Turn off the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system. 2. Make sure the area in front and behind the vehicle is clear of obstructions. 3. Turn the steering wheel right and left to clear an area around the front tires. 4. Slowly rock the vehicle forward and backward.
► Shift back and forth between R (Reverse) and D (Drive).
► Apply the accelerator as little as possible to maintain the rocking motion.
► Release the accelerator pedal before shifting between R and D.
► Do not spin the tires above 35 MPH (55 km/h). 5. If the vehicle cannot be freed after a few tries, contact a professional towing service to remove the vehicle.
