Aston Martin DB11 202 Roll-Over Protection System User Guide
Roll-Over Protection System
Warning: Do not attempt to service or modify the deployable roll-bar system.
Warning: Do not allow any person to sit on the deployable roll-bar covers at any time.
Warning: Do not place any objects on the top of the deployable roll-bar covers.
Warning: Do not attempt to reset the deployable roll-bar system after it has deployed.
Warning: Do not attempt to raise or lower the roof after the deployable roll-bar system has deployed.
Caution: If the roof is raised the deployable roll bars will break through the rear glass.
Caution: Extreme maneuvers may cause the vehicle system to predict a roll-over event and activate the roll-over protection system. If such driving is anticipated by the customer (track day driving, for example) the roof should be fully lowered so the roll bars can be deployed without damaging the vehicle. The roll-over protection system has electronic sensors mounted to the vehicle body that monitors and determine if a roll-over has taken place. If the system senses a rollover, two roll bars mounted under trim panels in the tonal lid, will deploy to protect vehicle occupants. If the roll bars are deployed the door mounted airbags will also be deployed to further protect vehicle occupants.
Do Not Cover is embossed into the tonal cover above the roll bars.
The wind deflector can be used to greatly reduce wind turbulence when the roof is lowered. It is easily installed to mounts in the vehicle and can be left in place with the roof raised or lowered.
Caution: Take care when adjusting the driver or passenger seat position with the wind deflector installed. Make sure that the seats do not come into contact with the wind deflector.
The wind deflector can easily be folded and stowed away when not used. When the wind deflector is not required, remove it from the vehicle and place it in the storage bag. Place the storage bag in the vehicle luggage compartment.
To install the wind deflector:
- Remove the wind deflector from the storage bag.
- Unfold the base panels.
- Open the main net panel and join the two base panels with the snap connectors.
Caution: Do not try to join the base panels with the snap connector before folding down from their stored position. If you do, you will damage the snap connectors.
- Insert the two locating tabs into the rear seat belt openings. Use the two slide bolts to lock the wind deflector above the rear seats.
When the wind deflector is installed it can used in the raised or lowered position. Grab the top bar of the wind deflector to raise or lower the panel until it clicks into position.
Caution: Do not use the wind deflector to store items. This can cause damage to the wind deflector such as a rip in the net area.
Caution: Do not grab the main net panel. Sharp objects can pierce or otherwise damage the net.
To remove the wind deflector, do the installation procedure in reverse.
Emergency Roof operation
In the unlikely event of the roof failing, it can be manually raised and locked.
Make sure the ignition is set to off before you begin this procedure. This will prevent accidental operation of the roof which can cause injury.
Aston Martin recommends that a minimum of two people are required to manually raise and lock the roof. The roof mechanism will move very slowly when being raised manually.
Keep your fingers clear of the roof linkage when moving the roof manually.
Caution: Vehicle Security: If the roof fails, always raise and lock the roof. Do not lower the roof as tonneau lid locks will not be available.
If the roof fails in the stored position it can stay stored and locked if required. Contact your Aston Martin Dealer.
If the roof fails after the tonal locks have been released the message “Open/close top completely” will show in the instrument cluster and a continuous audible warning will sound until the roof has been locked in the raised position.
To Raise the Roof
Once the manual roof raise procedure is complete, you will not be able to operate the convertible roof until it has been reset by an Aston Martin Dealer.
- Remove the wind deflector (if installed).
- Remove the head rests (A) for the rear seats.
- Remove the roof emergency tool (B) and put to one side. This will be needed to lock the roof.
- Pull the two release cables (C) for the tonal latches.
- Lift the tonal cover at the points shown.
- Push the hinge pivot (D) rearward to lock the tonneau into position.
- With a person each side, support the tension bow (E) and fully lift the roof to its closed position.
Caution: The tension bow must not be allowed to fall until the front latches for the roof are in their receivers. If the tension bow does fall back before this point, the inner lining for the roof will be damaged.
- Whilst supporting the tension bow, unlock the hinge and close the tonneau cover
- Once the tonneau cover is fully closed, lower the tension bow.
Caution: Do not allow the tonneau lid to rest on the roof fabric.
- Inside the vehicle, remove the trim plug from the front header panel.
- Use the small end of the roof emergency tool to remove the screw (F) from the roof motor.
- Use the large end of the roof emergency tool to disengage the drive spline (G) and turn the motor one turn counterclockwise.
You must contact your Aston Martin dealer to reset the drive to the roof latch motor.
If the roof is manually raised or lowered, both the tension bow and the tonneau cover cannot be locked.
