b) Repeat the following ten times: Shift to N for 3 seconds, then shift to D for 3 seconds.

XP is indicated in the P position in the display.

c) Repeat the following ten times: Shift to N for 3 seconds, then shift to R for      3 seconds.

2) Step-up ratio Adaptation:

a) Accelerate the vehicle to a speed > 80 km/h. Release the accelerator pedal and allow the vehicle to coast. The gearbox adapts itself for 4500, 4000... 1500 and 1400 rpm. P is indicated in the P position in the display.

b) The engine has now reached operating temperature. The idle speed is 800 rpm. Repeat step 2 and 3 of clutch adaptation.
