Station swapping
When two FM stations are close to each other, and an electronic dead spot, such as static or multipath area, interrupts the original signal, sometimes the stronger second signal will be selected automatically until the original one returns.

This swapping can also occur as you drive away from the selected station and approach another station of a stronger signal.

Compact disk player

To avoid damage to compact disc player and discs.

  • Use only compact discs labeled as shown, having no dirt, damage or warpage.
  • Never attempt to disassemble or oil any part of the player unit.
    Do not insert any object other than a disc into the slot.
    Remember there are no user-serviceable parts inside the compact disc player.
  • Do not allow the disc to sustain any fingerprints, scrapes or stickers on the surfaces.
    This may cause poor sound quality.
    Hold the disc only on the edge or center hole.
  • When not in use, take the disc out of the player, put the disc back into its case and store it away from dust, heat, damp and direct sunlight.
    Leaving the disc on the dashboard in the sun can damage the disc.
  • If the disc gets dirty, clean the disc by wiping the surfaces from the center to the outside in a radial direction with a soft cloth.
    Do not use a conventional record cleaner or anti-static record preservative.
    Disc cleaners are available in audio stores.


  • Always unscrew the external antenna before using an automatic car-wash.

On the Cabriolet and Targa the external antenna is mounted on the right front fender.
