Mercedes-Benz C-Class Owners Manual: Parking the vehicle

WARNING Risk of accident and injury caused by an insufficiently secured vehicle rolling away.

  • Ensure that the parked vehicle is always properly secured against rolling away as follows:
    • On uphill or downhill gradients, turn the front wheels so that the vehicle rolls towards the curb if it starts moving.
    • Apply the parking brake.
    • Vehicles with automatic transmission: shift the transmission to position R.
    • Vehicles with manual transmission: engage first 1 or reverse gear R.

 

WARNING Risk of fire caused by hot exhaust system parts
Flammable material such as leaves, grass or twigs may ignite if they come into contact with hot parts of the exhaust system or exhaust gas flow.
  • Park the vehicle so that no flammable material can come into contact with hot vehicle components.
  • In particular, do not park on dry grassland or harvested grain fields.

  • Releasing the parking brake.
  • Shifting the automatic transmission out of park position P.
  • Starting the engine.

In addition, they may operate vehicle equipment and become trapped.
