Re: Towing dolly panda 4x4 to spain

The owners handbook explains:
4x4 and Cross versions (except 2WD Cross models)
"the car can only be towed in one of the following ways...
- with all the wheels on the road surface
- with the front (or rear) wheels raised or resting on an emergency vehicle and the rear (or front) wheels resting on a specific trolley
- loaded on the flatbed of the rescue vehicle with all the wheels on the flatbed"

So, don't tow it with a towing dolly...

Removing the the propshaft is a major operation so probably not an option.

A flatbed trailer is probably the best option.

You could potentially tow on an a-frame (all wheels on ground), IF you can find a way to actuate the Pandaís braking system - Iíve seen it done on Smart cars etc, but itís quite a hassle and will involve modifications to your Panda.
