Polaris 500 Offroad Vehicle User Manual

Driving Safely
Driving Through Water
If your vehicle becomes fully immersed, and it's impossible to take it to
a dealer before starting it, follow the steps described on page 100. Have
the vehicle serviced by your dealer promptly.
If water has been ingested into the transmission (PVT), follow the pro-
cedure on page 105.
Always follow the procedures outlined in this
manual for driving through water. Never drive
through deep or fast-flowing water.
If the vehicle stops while fully submerged, major engine damage can result if the
machine is not thoroughly inspected. Take the vehicle to your dealer before
starting the engine.
