The pedals must always be free to move and must never be obstructed by floor mats or any objects in the footwell.

Ц Make sure that the accelerator, brake and clutch pedals are not obstructed and can be pressed all the way down to the floor.
Ц Make sure that all pedals are able to return freely to their original positions.

Only use floor mats which leave the pedal area free and can be securely fastened in the footwell.

If one of the brake circuits should fail, increased brake pedal travel will be required to bring the vehicle safely to a stop.


Any obstructions that restrict pedal travel can cause loss of vehicle control and critical situations on the road.

Х Never place objects in the driver's footwell. Such objects could move under the pedals and interfere with their proper function. In the event of sudden braking or a change of direction, you would not be able to use the pedals. This could result in a loss of control and possibly cause an accident.
