Check that no object or
person prevents the front
seat from locking. If so,
remove any obstacles
behind the front seats. Adjust the
seat to allow sufficient room in the
rear. The rear occupants/objects
should then return to the vehicle.
Lift handle 6, tilt the seatback and slide
the seat forwards.
To return the seat to its original position
(memorised position depending on vehicle):
– slide the seat backwards until it
locks;
Repeat the above until the seat is
locked correctly.
– lift the seatback until it locks.
Make sure the seat is correctly locked
in position.

during vehicle acceleration or braking.
Do not move handle 1 and handle 6
at the same time.
1.23
SEAT BELTS (1/4)
Always wear your seat belt when travelling in your vehicle. You must also
comply with the legislation of the particular country you are in.
Before starting, first adjust your driving position, then ask all occupants
to adjust their seat belts to ensure
optimum protection.
Adjusting your driving
position
Make sure that the rear bench seat
is locked in position correctly so that
the rear seat belts will operate efficiently. Refer to the information on
the “Rear bench seat: functions” in
Section 3.
Incorrectly adjusted or
twisted seat belts may
cause injuries in the event
of an accident.
Use one seat belt per person,
whether child or adult.
Even pregnant women should wear
a seat belt. In this case, ensure that
the lap belt is not exerting too much
pressure on the abdomen, but do
not allow any slack.
1.24
– Sit well back in your seat (having
first removed your coat or jacket).
This is essential to ensure your back
is positioned correctly;
– adjust the distance between the
seat and the pedals. Your seat
should be as far back as possible
while still allowing you to depress
the clutch pedal fully. The seatback
should be adjusted so that your arms
are slightly bent when you hold the
steering wheel;
– adjust the position of your headrest. For the maximum safety, your
head must be as close as possible to
the headrest;
– adjust the height of the seat. This
adjustment allows you to select the
seat position which offers you the
best possible view;
– adjust the position of the steering
wheel.

Adjusting the seat belts
Sit with your back firmly against the
seatback.
Shoulder strap 1 should be as close as
possible to the base of the neck but not
on it.
Lap belt 2 should be worn flat over the
thighs and against the pelvis.
The belt should be worn so that it is
as close as possible to your body, i.e.:
avoid wearing heavy clothing or keeping bulky objects under the belts, etc.

SEAT BELTS (4/4)
The following information applies to the vehicle’s front and rear seat belts.
–No modification may be made to the component parts of the restraint system (belts and seats and their mountings)
fitted originally. For special operations (e.g. fitting child seats) contact an approved Dealer.
–Do not use devices which allow any slack in the belts (e.g. clothes pegs, clips, etc.): a seat belt which is worn too
loosely may cause injury in the event of an accident.
– Never wear the shoulder strap under your arm or behind your back.
– Never use the same belt for more than one person and never hold a baby or child on your lap with your seat belt around
them.
– The belt should never be twisted.
– Following an accident, have the seat belts checked and replaced if necessary. Always replace your seat belts as soon as
they show any signs of wear.
– When putting back the rear bench seat, make sure the seat belts are correctly positioned so that they can be used properly.
– Make sure that the buckle is inserted into the appropriate catch.
– Ensure that no objects are placed in the area around the seat belt catch as they could prevent it from being properly secured.
1.27
METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS (1/4)
Depending on the vehicle, they are
composed of:
– seat belt inertia reel pretensioners;
–Have the entire restraint
system checked following
an accident.
– lap belt pretensioners;
– chest-level load limiters;
– anti-submarining air bags;
– air bags for driver and front passenger.
These systems are designed to act
independently or together when the
vehicle is subjected to a frontal impact.
Depending on the severity of the impact,
the system can trigger:
– seat belt locking;
– the seat belt inertia reel pretensioner
(which engages to correct seat belt
slack);
– the front air bag;
– the lap seat belt pretensioners to
hold the occupant in his seat.
2
3
1
Pretensioners
The pretensioners hold the seat belt
against the body, holding the occupant
more securely against the seat, thus increasing the seat belt’s efficiency.
In the event of a severe frontal impact
and if the ignition is switched on, the
system may engage the following depending on the force of the impact:
– seat belt inertia reel pretensioner 1
which instantly retracts the seat belt;
– lap belt pretensioner 2 on the front
seats or anti-submarining air bag 3.
1.28
–No operation whatsoever is permitted on any part of
the system (pretensioners, air
bags, computers, wiring) and the
system components must not
be reused on any other vehicle,
even if identical.
– To avoid incorrect triggering of
the system which may cause
injury, only qualified personnel
from an approved Dealer may
work on the pretensioner and air
bag system.
– The electric trigger system may
only be tested by a specially
trained technician using special
equipment.
– When the vehicle is scrapped,
contact an approved Dealer for
disposal of the pretensioner and
air bag gas generators.
METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS (2/4)
Chest-level and lap belt load
limiters
Air bag for driver and front
passenger
Above a certain severity of impact, this
mechanism is used to limit the force of
the belt against the body so that it is at
an acceptable level.
Fitted to the driver and passenger side.
Anti-submarining air bag
Located on each of the front seats, it
deploys in order to prevent the occupant from sliding under the seat belt.
The presence of this equipment is indicated by the word “Air bag” on the
steering wheel and dashboard (air bag
zone A) and, depending on the vehicle,
a symbol on the lower section of the
windscreen.
A
Each air bag system consists of:
– an air bag and gas generator fitted
on the steering wheel for the driver
and in the dashboard for the front
passenger;
– an electronic unit for system monitoring which controls the gas generator
electrical trigger system;
å
– a single
warning light on the
instrument panel.
The air bag system uses
pyrotechnic principles. This
explains why, when the air
bag inflates, it will generate heat, produce smoke (this does
not mean that a fire is about to start)
and make a noise upon detonation.
In a situation where an air bag is
required, it will inflate immediately
and this may cause some minor, superficial grazing to the skin or other
problems.
1.29
METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS (3/4)

Operation
This system is only operational when
the ignition is switched on.
In a severe frontal impact, the air bags
inflate rapidly, cushioning the impact
of the driver’s head and chest against
the steering wheel and of the front passenger against the dashboard. The air
bags then deflate immediately so that
the passengers are not in any way hindered from leaving the vehicle.
1.30
Operating faults
å
Warning light 4
will light up on
the instrument panel when the ignition
is turned on and then go out after a few
seconds.
If it does not light up when the ignition
is switched on, or comes on when the
engine is running, there is a fault in the
system.
Contact your approved Dealer as soon
as possible. Your protection will be reduced until this fault is rectified.
METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS (4/4)
All of the warnings below are given so that the air bag is not obstructed in any way when it is inflated and also to prevent
the risk of serious injuries caused by items which may be dislodged when it inflates.
Warnings concerning the driver’s air bag
–Do not modify the steering wheel or the steering wheel boss.
–Do not cover the steering wheel boss under any circumstances.
– Do not attach any objects (badge, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to the steering wheel boss.
– The steering wheel must not be removed (except by qualified personnel from our Network).
– When driving, do not sit too close to the steering wheel. Sit with your arms slightly bent (see the information on “Adjusting
your driving position” in Section 1). This will allow sufficient space for the air bag to deploy correctly and be fully effective.
Warnings concerning the passenger air bag
– Do not attach or glue any objects (badge, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to the dashboard on or near the air bag.
– Do not place anything between the dashboard and the passenger (pet, umbrella, walking stick, parcels, etc.).
– The passenger must not put his or her feet on the dashboard or seat as there is a risk that serious injuries may occur. In
general, parts of the body should be kept away from the dashboard (knees, hands, head, etc.).
– The devices in addition to the front passenger seat belt should be reactivated as soon as a child seat is removed, to ensure
the protection of the passenger in the event of an impact.
A REAR-FACING CHILD SEAT MUST NOT BE FITTED TO THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT UNLESS
THE ADDITIONAL RESTRAINT SYSTEMS, I.E. THE PASSENGER AIR BAG, ARE DEACTIVATED.
(refer to the information on “Child safety: deactivating/activating the front passenger air bag” in Section 1)
Warnings concerning the anti-submarining air bag
Do not let a child under the age of 12 sit in this seat. When triggered, the anti-submarining air bag may project objects left on
the seat base with a great deal of force.
Risk of serious injury.
1.31
Methods of restraint in addition to the rear seat belts
Force limiter
Above a certain severity of impact, this
mechanism is used to limit the force of
the belt against the body so that it is at
an acceptable level.
–Have the entire restraint
system checked following
an accident.
–No operation whatsoever
is permitted on any part of the
system (air bags, electronic control units, wiring) and the system
components must not be reused
on any other vehicle, even if identical.
– Only qualified personnel from
our Network may work on the air
bags; otherwise the system may
trigger accidentally and cause
injury.
1.32
SIDE PROTECTION DEVICES
Side Airbags
This airbag may be fitted to each of the
front seats and is activated at the sides
of the seats (door side) to protect the
occupants in the event of a severe side
impact.
Curtain Airbags
This airbag may be fitted along the top
of each side of the vehicle and is triggered along the front and rear side windows to protect the passengers in the
event of a severe side impact.
Warning relating to the side airbag
– Fitting seat covers: seats equipped with an airbag require covers specifically designed for your vehicle. Contact an approved Dealer to find out
if these covers are available. The use of any covers other than those designed for your vehicle (and including those designed for another vehicle) may
affect the operation of the airbags and reduce your protection.
– Do not place any accessories, objects or even pets between the seatback, the
door and the internal fittings. Do not cover the seatback with any items such as
clothes or accessories. This may prevent the air bag from operating correctly
or cause injury when the airbag is deployed.
– No work or modification whatsoever may be carried out on the seat or internal
fittings, except by qualified personnel from an approved Dealer.
Depending on the vehicle, a marking on the windscreen informs you
of the presence of additional means
of restraint (air bags, pretensioners, etc.) in the passenger compartment.
– This airbag operates through slits in the front seatbacks (door side): never
insert any objects in these slits.
1.33
ADDITIONAL METHODS OF RESTRAINT
All of the warnings below are given so that the airbag is not obstructed in any way when it is inflated and also to prevent
the risk of serious injuries caused by items which may be dislodged when it inflates.
The airbag is designed to complement the action of the seat belt. Both the air bags and seat belts are integral parts of
the same protection system. It is therefore essential to wear seat belts at all times. If seat belts are not worn, the occupants are exposed to the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident. It may also increase the risk of minor superficial injuries occurring when the airbag is deployed, although such minor injuries are always possible with air bags.
If the vehicle should overturn or in the event of a rear impact, however severe, the pretensioners and airbags are not always
triggered. Impacts to the underside of the vehicle, e.g. from pavements, potholes or stones, can all trigger these systems.
– No work or modification whatsoever may be carried out on any part of the airbag system (airbags, pretensioners, computer,
wiring harness, etc.), except by qualified Network personnel.
– To ensure that the system is in good working order and to avoid accidental triggering of the system which may cause injury,
only qualified Network personnel may work on the airbag system.
– As a safety precaution, have the airbag system checked if your vehicle has been involved in an accident, or is stolen or
broken into.
– When selling or lending the vehicle, inform the user of these points and hand over this handbook with the vehicle.
– When scrapping your vehicle, contact your approved Dealer for disposal of the gas generator(s).
1.34
Child safety: General information
Carrying children
Children, and adults, must be correctly
seated and strapped in for all journeys.
The children being carried in your vehicle are your responsibility.
A child is not a miniature adult. Children
are at risk of specific injuries as their
muscles and bones have not yet finished growing. The seat belt alone
would not provide suitable protection.
Use an approved child seat and ensure
you use it correctly.
To prevent the doors being
opened, use the “Child
safety” device (refer to the
information on “Opening
and closing the doors” in
Section 1).
Using a child seat
The level of protection offered by the
child seat depends on its ability to restrain your child and on its installation.
Incorrect installation compromises the
protection it offers the child in the event
of harsh braking or an impact.
Before purchasing a child seat, check
that it complies with the regulations for
the country you are in and that it can
be fitted in your vehicle. Consult an approved dealer to find out which seats
are recommended for your vehicle.
Before fitting a child seat, read the
manual and respect its instructions. If
you experience any difficulties during
installation, contact the manufacturer
of the equipment. Keep the instructions
with the seat.
A collision at 30 mph (50 km/h) is the same as falling a distance of 10
metres. Transporting a child without a restraint is the equivalent of allowing him or her to play on a fourth-floor balcony without railings.
Never travel with a child held in your arms. In the event of an accident,
you will not be able to keep hold of the child, even if you yourself are wearing a
seat belt.
If your vehicle has been involved in a road accident, replace the child seat and
have the seat belts and ISOFIX anchorage points checked.
Set a good example by always fastening your seat belt and teaching
your child:
– to strap themselves in correctly;
– to always get in and out of the car
at the kerb, away from busy traffic.
Do not use a second-hand child
seat or one without an instruction
manual.
Check that there are no objects in
the vicinity of the child seat which
could impede its operation.
Never leave a child unattended in the vehicle.
Check that your child is
always strapped in and that
the belt or safety harness used is
correctly set and adjusted. Avoid
wearing bulky clothing which could
cause the belts to slacken.
Never let your child put their head or
arms out of the window.
Check that the child is in the correct
position for the entire journey, especially if asleep.
1.35
Child safety: Choosing a child seat
Rear-facing child seats
A baby’s head is, proportionally, heavier
than that of an adult and its neck is very
fragile. Transport the child in this position as long as possible (until the age of
2 at the very least). It supports both the
head and the neck.
Choose a bucket type seat for best side
protection and change it as soon as the
child’s head is higher than the shell.
1.36
Forward-facing child seats
The child’s head and abdomen need
to be protected as a priority. A forwardfacing child seat which is firmly attached to the vehicle will reduce the risk
of impact to the head. Ensure your child
travels in a forward-facing seat with a
harness or buckle for as long as their
size permits.
Choose a bucket type seat for optimum
side protection.w
Booster cushions
From 15 kg or 4 years, the child can
travel using a booster seat, which will
enable the seat belt to be adapted to
suit his size and shape. The booster
seat cushion must be fitted with guides
to position the seat belt on the child’s
thighs rather than the stomach. It is
recommended that you use a seatback
which can be adjusted in terms of height
to position the seat belt in the centre of
the shoulder. It must never rest on the
neck or on the arm.
Choose a bucket type seat for optimum
side protection.
child safety: choosing a child/baby seat mounting (1/2)
There are two ways of attaching child
seats: via the seat belt or using the
ISOFIX system.
Attachment via the seat belt
The seat belt must be adjusted to
ensure that it is effective in the event of
harsh braking or an impact.
Ensure that the strap paths indicated
by the child seat manufacturer are respected.
Always check that the seat belt is correctly fastened by pulling it up, then
pulling it out fully whilst pressing on the
child seat.
Check that the seat is correctly held by
moving it from side to side and back
to front: the seat should remain firmly
fixed.
Check that the child seat has not been
installed at an angle and that it is not
resting against a window.
Do not use the child seat
if it may unfasten the seat
belt restraining it: the base
of the seat must not rest on
the buckle and/or catch of the seat
belt.
The seat belt must never
be twisted or the tension
relieved. Never pass the
shoulder strap under the
arm or behind the back.
Check that the seat belt has not
been damaged by sharp edges.
If the seat belt does not operate normally, it will not protect the child.
Consult an approved dealer. Do not
use this seat until the seat belt has
been repaired.
No modifications may be
made to the component
parts of the restraint system
(seat belts, ISOFIX and
seats and their mountings) originally
fitted.
Attachment using the ISOFIX
system
Authorised ISOFIX child seats are approved in accordance with regulation
ECE-R44 in one of the three following
cases:
– ISOFIXuniversal 3-point forwardfacing seat;
– ISOFIXsemi-universal 2-point seat;
– specific.
For the latter two, check that your child
seat can be installed by consulting the
list of compatible vehicles.
Attach the child seat with the ISOFIX
locks, if these are provided. The ISOFIX
system allows quick, easy, safe fitting.
The ISOFIX system consists of 2 rings
and, in some cases, a third ring.
Before using an ISOFIX
child seat that you purchased for another vehicle,
check that its installation is
authorised. Consult the list of vehicles which can be fitted with the
seat from the equipment manufacturer.

The two rings 1 are located between
the seatback and the seat base of the
seat and are identified by a marking.
To ensure your child seat can be easily
fitted and locked on rings 1, use access
guides 2 on the child seat.
The third ring is used to attach the
upper strap on some child seats:
The ISOFIX anchorage points have been exclusively designed for child
seats with the ISOFIX system. Never fit a different type of child seat, seat
belt or other objects to these anchorage points.
Check that nothing is obstructing the anchorage points.
If your vehicle has been involved in a road accident, have the ISOFIX anchorage
points checked and replace your child seat.
1.38
– depending on the vehicle, unclip
mobile floor cover 6 then pass
through strap 3;
– hook 4 must be fitted to ring 5 or
to the ring located under cover 6
marked with  . The strap must
then be tightened.
Check that the seatback
of the forward-facing child
seat is in contact with the
back of the vehicle seat.
In this case, the child seat may not
always rest on the base of the vehicle seat.
Child safety: Fitting a child seat
Some seats are not suitable for fitting
child seats. The diagram on the following page shows you how to attach a
child seat.
The types of child seat indicated may
not be available. Before using a different child seat, check with the manufacturer that it can be fitted.
Ensure that the child seat
or the child’s feet do not
prevent the front seat from
locking correctly. Refer to
the information on the “Front seat”
in Section 1.
Check that when installing the child
seat in the vehicle it is not at risk of
coming loose from its base.
If you have to remove the headrest,
check that it is correctly stored so
that it does not come loose under
harsh braking or impact.
Always attach the child seat to the
vehicle even if it is not in use so that
it does not come loose under harsh
braking or impact.
In the front seat
The laws concerning children travelling in the front passenger seat differ in
every country. Consult the legislation in
force and follow the indications on the
diagram on the following page.
Before fitting a child seat in this seat (if
authorised):
– lower the seat belt as far as possible;
– move the seat as far back as possible;
– gently tilt the seatback away from
vertical (approximately 25°);
– on equipped vehicles, raise the seat
base as far as possible.
Do not change these settings after the
child seat is installed.
RISK OF DEATH OR
SERIOUS INJURY: before
installing a rear-facing child
seat in the front passenger seat, make sure the airbag has
been deactivated (refer to the information on “Child safety: front passenger airbag deactivation/activation” in Section 1).
In the rear side seat
A carrycot can be installed across the
vehicle and will take up at least two
seats. Position the child with his or her
feet nearest the door.
Move the front seat as far forward as
possible to install a rear-facing child
seat, then move back the seat or seats
in front in accordance with the child
seat instructions.
For the safety of the child in the forward-facing seat, do not move the seat
in front back past the middle of the
runner, do not tilt the seatback too far
(maximum of 25°) and raise the seat as
much as possible.
Check that the forward-facing child seat
is resting against the back of the vehicle seat and that the headrest of the vehicle is not obstructing its use.
Rear centre seat
Check that the belt is suitable for securing your child seat. Consult an approved dealer.
Fit the child seat in a rear
seat wherever possible.

External temperature indicator
As ice formation is related
to climatic exposure, local
air humidity and temperature, the
external temperature alone is not
sufficient to detect ice.
If the electrical supply is cut (battery
disconnected, broken supply wire,
etc.), the clock will lose its time setting.
The time must then be set.
We recommend that you do not
adjust these settings while driving.
Steering wheel/Power-assisted steering
Power Assisted Steering
Never drive with an inadequately
charged battery.
Variable power assisted

Adjusting the steering wheel
height and depth
Steering is made easier during parking
manoeuvres (for added comfort) whilst
the force needed to steer increases
progressively as the speed rises (for
enhanced safety at high speeds).
(depending on vehicle)
Pull lever 1 and place the steering
wheel in the required position; push the
lever beyond the point of resistance to
lock the steering wheel in place.
With the engine switched off, or if
there is a system fault, it is still possible to turn the steering wheel. The
force required will be greater.
Make sure that the steering wheel is
correctly locked.
For safety reasons, only
adjust the steering wheel
when the vehicle is stationary.
Never leave the steering wheel on
full lock when the vehicle is stationary.
Never switch off the ignition when travelling downhill, and avoid doing so in

FUEL TANK (1/2)
Fuel grade
Use a high grade fuel that complies
with the standards currently in force in
each country.
Diesel version
A
1
2
It is essential to use diesel fuel that
conforms to the specifications given on
the label inside fuel filler flap A.
Make sure that no water accidentally
enters the fuel tank during filling. The
closure and its surrounding area must
be dust-free.
B
Filling the tank
To open cover A, place your finger into
recess B.
When filling, use the cap holder 1 on
the cover A to secure the cap 2.
Useful capacity of the fuel tank:
55 litres approximately.
Fuel filler cap: this is specific.
If you have to replace it,
make sure it is identical
to the original cap. Contact an approved Dealer.
Never place the cap near a source
of heat or flame.
Do not wash the filler area with a
high-pressure washer.
After filling, check that the cap and
cover are closed.
1.84
Do not mix even small
amounts of petrol (unleaded
or E85) with diesel.
Do not use ethanol-based
fuel if your vehicle is not compatible
with this fuel.
FUEL TANK (2/2)
Petrol version
It is essential to use unleaded petrol.
The octane rating (RON) must conform with the specifications given on
the label inside fuel filler flap A. Refer
to the information on “Engine specifications” in Section 6.
Special features of vehicles running
on ethanol-based fuel:
It is essential to use unleaded petrol or
fuel containing a maximum of 85% ethanol (E85).
To make it easier to start the engine in
very cold conditions, it is recommended
to use unleaded petrol or, on equipped
vehicles, to use the heater integrated in
the engine.
In this case, connect the special end of
the extension piece supplied into the
socket integrated into the radiator grille
and the other end into a 220V socket
for at least 6 hours before starting.
Note: when using ethanol-based fuel,
you may notice over-consumption.
Filling up with fuel
Petrol versions
Using leaded petrol will damage the
antipollution system and may lead to a
loss of warranty.
To ensure that the fuel tank is not filled
with leaded petrol, the fuel tank filler
neck contains a restrictor fitted with a
foolproof system which only allows
the nozzle for unleaded petrol to be
used (at the pump).
– Insert the nozzle so that the valve is
pushed back and then fully insert it
before beginning to fill the tank (risk
of splashback).
Persistent fuel odour
If you notice a persistent
fuel odour you should:
– stop the vehicle as soon as traffic conditions allow and switch off
the ignition;
– switch on the hazard warning
lights and ask your passengers to
leave the vehicle and stay clear
of the traffic;
– contact an approved Dealer.
– Keep the nozzle in this position
throughout the entire filling operation.
Petrol and diesel versions
When the pump cuts out automatically
at the end of the filling procedure, a
maximum of two further filling attempts
may be made, as there must be sufficient space in the fuel tank to allow for
expansion.
No modifications whatsoever are permitted on
any part of the fuel supply
system (electronic unit,
wiring, fuel circuit, injector, protective covers, etc.) as this may be
dangerous (unless undertaken by
qualified Network personnel).

The steering locks. Check that it is correctly locked in position.
With the engine switched off, any accessories being used (radio, heating
and air conditioning, etc.) will continue
to function for a few minutes.
When the driver’s door is opened, the
accessories stop working.
Never leave your vehicle
with the RENAULT card
inside and never leave a
child (or a pet) unsupervised, even
for a short while.
There is a risk that they could start
the engine or operate electrical
equipment (electric windows etc.)
and trap part of their body (neck,
arms, hands, etc.).
Risk of serious injury.
Never switch off the ignition before
the vehicle has stopped completely.
Once the engine has stopped, the
brake servo, power-assisted steering, etc. and the passive safety devices such as air bags and pretensioners will no longer operate.
SPECIAL FEATURES OF PETROL VERSIONS
The following operating conditions:
– driving for long periods when the low
fuel level warning light is lit;
– using leaded petrol;
– using fuel or lubrication additives
which are not approved.
Or operating faults such as:
– faulty ignition system, running out of
fuel or disconnected spark plugs resulting in the engine misfiring or cutting out when driving;
– loss of power,
as they may cause the catalytic converter to overheat and thus reduce its
efficiency, or damage it irreparably
and cause heat damage to the vehicle.
If you notice any of the above operating
faults, have the necessary repairs carried out as soon as possible by an approved Dealer.
These faults may be avoided by regularly taking your vehicle to an approved
Dealer at the intervals specified in the
Maintenance Service Booklet.
Starting problems
To avoid damaging the catalytic converter, do not keep trying to start the
engine (using the start button, or by
pushing or towing the vehicle) without
having identified and corrected the
starting fault.
If the fault cannot be identified, do not
keep trying to start the engine, but contact an approved Dealer.
Do not park the vehicle or
run the engine in locations
where combustible substances or materials such as
grass or leaves can come into contact with the hot exhaust system.
2.9
SPECIAL FEATURES OF DIESEL VERSIONS
Diesel engine speed
Precautions to be taken in winter
Diesel engines are fitted with injection
equipment which prevents the engine
speed being exceeded irrespective of
the gear selected.
To avoid faults in icy weather:
Running out of fuel
You may start the engine normally after
refilling the fuel tank even if you have
completely run out of fuel, provided
that the battery is fully charged.
– ensure that the battery is always fully
charged;
– always keep the diesel tank relatively full to avoid water vapour condensing in it and accumulating at the
bottom of the tank.
However, if the engine fails to start after
a few seconds and several attempts,
contact an approved Dealer.
Do not park the vehicle or
run the engine in locations
where combustible substances or materials such as
grass or leaves can come into contact with the hot exhaust system.
2.10
DIESEL VERSIONS WITH PARTICLE FILTER
As a guide, this type of cleaning should
take up to 20 minutes.
If the © warning light comes on,
accompanied by the message “Check
antipollution”, consult an approved
Dealer as soon as possible.
When driving, depending on the grade
of fuel used, it is possible that white
smoke may be emitted.
This is due to the exhaust particle filter
being cleaned automatically, and does
not affect the way the vehicle runs.
Diesel engine speed

Diesel engines are fitted with injection
equipment which prevents the engine
speed being exceeded irrespective of

Ü
Warning light 1
comes on to indicate a filter saturation risk.
To clean the particle filter, for 60 miles
(100 km) after the message appears,
drive at an average speed of at least
24 mph (40 km/h), where suitable traffic conditions and the speed limit will
allow, until the warning light goes out.
You may need to restart the operation if
the vehicle has to stop before the warning light goes out.
Do not park the vehicle or
run the engine in locations
where combustible substances or materials such as
grass or leaves can come into contact with the hot exhaust system.

Gear lever
Selecting reverse gear
Vehicles with manual gearbox: refer
to the grid on the gear lever knob 1.
Vehicles with automatic gearbox: refer to the information on the
“Automatic gearbox” in Section 2.
The reversing lights will come on as
soon as reverse gear is selected with
the ignition on.
2.12
An impact to the underside of the vehicle while
manoeuvring (e.g.: striking a post, raised kerb or
other street furniture) may result in
damage to the vehicle (e.g.: deformation of an axle).
To avoid any risk of accident, have
your vehicle checked by an approved Dealer.
Make sure that the handbrake is properly released
when driving (red indicator
light off), otherwise overheating may occur.
When stationary, and depending on the slope and/or
vehicle load, it may be necessary to pull up the handbrake at least two extra notches and
engage a gear (1st or reverse gear)
for vehicles with a manual gearbox
or position P for vehicles with an automatic gearbox.
Advice: antipollution, fuel economy and driving (1/3)
Your vehicle complies with criteria for
recycling and recovering vehicles at the
end of their service life which will come
into force in 2015.
Some parts of your vehicle have therefore been designed to facilitate future
recycling.
These parts are easy to remove so that
they can be recovered and reprocessed
by recycling companies.
By virtue of its design, moderate fuel
consumption and initial settings, your
vehicle also conforms to current antipollution regulations. The manufacturer is actively striving to reduce pollutant exhaust gas emissions and to
save energy. But the fuel consumption
of your vehicle and the level of pollutant
exhaust gas emissions are also your responsibility. Ensure that it is maintained
and used correctly.
Aiding fuel economy
Depending on the vehicle, in order to
optimise consumption, an indicator light
on the instrument panel will inform you
of the best moment to upshift or downshift gears:
\
[
shift up a gear;
shift down a gear.
Maintenance
It is important to remember that failure to
respect antipollution regulations could
lead to legal action being taken against
the vehicle owner. In addition, replacing
engine, fuel supply system and exhaust
components with parts other than those
originally recommended by the manufacturer may alter your vehicle so that
it no longer complies with antipollution
regulations.
Have your vehicle adjusted and checked
by an approved Dealer, in accordance
with the instructions given in your maintenance schedule: they will have all the
equipment necessary for ensuring that
your vehicle is maintained to its original
standard.
Engine adjustments
– ignition: this does not require adjustment.
– spark plugs: for optimum fuel economy, efficiency and performance
the specifications laid down by our
Design Department must be strictly
applied.
If the spark plugs have to be changed,
use the make, type and gap specified
for your vehicle’s engine. Contact an
approved dealer for this.
– idle: this does not require adjustment.
– air filter, diesel filter: a clogged element reduces performance. It must
be replaced.
2.13
Advice: antipollution, fuel economy and driving (2/3)
Exhaust gas monitoring
system
The exhaust gas monitoring system will
detect any operating faults in the vehicle’s antipollution system.
If this system malfunctions, toxic substances may be released into the atmosphere or damage may occur.
Ä
This warning light on the instrument panel will indicate if
there are any faults in the system:
This lights up when the ignition is
switched on and goes out when the
engine is started.
– If it lights up continuously, consult an
approved Dealer as soon as possible;
– if it flashes, reduce the engine speed
until the light stops flashing. Contact
your approved dealer as soon as
possible.
Driving
– Drive carefully for the first few miles
until the engine reaches its normal
operating temperature, rather than
let it warm up while the vehicle is stationary.
– Speed is expensive.
– Sporty driving uses a lot of fuel: drive
with a light right foot.
2.14
– Brake as little as possible. If you anticipate an obstacle or bend in advance, you may then simply release
the accelerator pedal.
– Avoid sudden acceleration.
– Do not overrev the engine in the intermediate gears.
Always use the highest gear possible without labouring the engine.
On versions with an automatic gearbox, it is preferable to keep the gear
lever in position D.
– Do not try to maintain the same
speed up a hill, accelerate no more
than you would on the level. Keep
your foot in the same position on the
accelerator pedal.
– Double declutching and accelerating
before switching off are unnecessary
in modern vehicles.
– Bad weather, flooded roads:
Do not drive through floods
if the water is above the
lower edge of the wheel
rims.
Advice: antipollution, fuel economy and driving (3/3)
– In vehicles fitted with air conditioning, it is normal to observe an
increase in fuel consumption (especially in urban conditions) when it is
used. For vehicles fitted with manual
air conditioning, switch off the system
when it is not required.
Advice for reducing consumption
and therefore helping to preserve
the environment:
If the vehicle has been parked in the
sun, open the doors for a few moments to let the hot air escape before
starting the engine.
Advice on use
– Electricity is fuel; switch off all the
electrical components which are
not really needed. However (safety
first), keep your lights on when the
visibility is bad (“see and be seen”).
– Use the air vents. Driving with the
windows open at 60 mph (100 km/
h) will increase fuel consumption by
4%.
– Never fill the fuel tank right to the
brim to avoid overflow.
– Do not leave an empty roof rack
fitted to the vehicle.
– It is better to fit a trailer for bulky objects.
– When towing a caravan, fit a wind
deflector and adjust it carefully.
– Avoid using the car for door-to-door
calls (short journeys with long waits
in between) because the engine
never reaches its normal operating
temperature.
Tyres
– An underinflated tyre increases fuel
consumption.
– The use of non-recommended tyres
can increase fuel consumption.
2.15
Environment
Your vehicle has been designed with
respect for the environment in mind for
its entire service life: during production,
use and at the end of its life.
This commitment is illustrated by the
Renault eco² group signature.
Manufacture
Your vehicle has been manufactured at
an industrial site which uses a progress
policy to reduce environmental impacts
on rivers and natural areas (reduction of water and energy consumption,
visual and noise pollution, atmospheric
emissions and waste water, sorting and
reusing waste).
Emissions
Recycling
Your vehicle has been designed to
emit fewer greenhouse gases (CO2)
while in use, and therefore to consume
less fuel (eg. 140 g/km, equivalent to
5.3 l/100 km for a diesel vehicle).
Our vehicles are also equipped with a
particle filter system including a catalytic converter, an oxygen sensor and
an active carbon filter (the latter prevents vapour from the fuel tank being
released into the open air).
Your vehicle is 85% recyclable and 95%
recoverable.
Please make your own
contribution towards
protecting the environment
too.
– Worn parts replaced in the course of
routine vehicle maintenance (vehicle battery, oil filter, air filter, batteries, etc.) and oil containers (empty or
filled with used oil) must be disposed
of through specialist organisations.
– At the end of the vehicle’s service
life, it should be sent to approved
centres to ensure that it is recycled.
– In all cases, comply with local legislation.
2.16
To achieve these objectives, many of
the vehicle components have been designed to enable them to be recycled.
The materials and structures have been
carefully designed to allow these components to be easily removed and reprocessed by specialist companies.
In order to preserve raw material resources, this vehicle incorporates numerous parts made from recycled plastics or renewable materials (vegetable
or animal-derived materials such as
cotton or wool).
ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM: ABS (1/2)
Under heavy braking, the essential requirements are to limit the stopping
distance and keep your vehicle under
control. However, there is a risk that
roadholding and directional control
may be lost and the wheels may lock
under braking, depending on the nature
of the ground, weather conditions and
your reactions. The Anti-lock Braking
System (ABS) has been designed to
combat this danger.
The safety enhancement is that the
brake control system prevents the
wheels from locking, even if the brakes
are applied too sharply, and allows the
vehicle to be steered and thus its direction to be controlled. Under these circumstances it is quite possible for the
driver to steer the vehicle and to avoid
an obstacle whilst at the same time applying the brake.
This system also allows you to optimise
stopping distances when the grip of one
or more wheels may be lost (wet roads,
slippery or varying road surfaces).
Although this system allows you to optimise stopping distances, the ABS does
not allow you to increase vehicle performance, which is physically linked
to the local conditions of tyre/road adhesion. It is still essential to follow the
rules of good driving practice (such as
driving at a safe distance from the vehicle in front). The fact that the vehicle’s
safety has been increased should
not encourage you to take risks.
You will feel a pulsation through the
brake pedal each time the system is activated. These tangible signs will warn
you that the grip of the tyres on the
ground has reached its limit and enable
you to adapt your driving style to suit
the road conditions.
This function is an additional aid in the event of
critical driving conditions,
enabling the vehicle behaviour to be adapted to suit the driving
conditions.
However, the function does not take
the place of the driver. It does not
increase the vehicle’s limits and
should not encourage you to
drive more quickly.
Therefore, it can under no circumstances replace the vigilance or responsibility of the driver when manoeuvring the vehicle (the driver
must always be ready for sudden incidents which may occur when driving).
2.17
ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM: ABS (2/2)
One of two situations may arise if there
is a fault in the ABS system:

along with © and
and the message ‘brake

This indicates that both the braking system and the ABS system
are faulty. Your braking systems are
only partially operational. However,
it is dangerous to brake suddenly
and it is essential to stop immediately, as soon as traffic conditions
allow. Contact an approved Dealer.
2.18
The braking modulation provided by
the ABS is independent of the effort
applied to the brake pedal. In an
emergency, apply firm and continuous pressure to the brake pedal
There is no need to pump it repeatedly.
ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAM: E.S.P. (1/2)
This system helps to keep control of
the vehicle in critical driving situations
(avoiding an obstacle, loss of grip when
cornering, etc.) and works in conjunction with the ‘understeer control’
system.
When the E.S.P. function starts operating, warning light A flashes to warn
you.
A
If the warning light comes on accompanied by the ‘traction control deselected’
message when the engine is started,
slowly turn the steering wheel from lock
to lock to reinitialise the system.
Understeer control
This function is an additional aid in the event of
critical driving conditions,
enabling the vehicle behaviour to be adapted to suit the driving
conditions.
However, the function does not take
the place of the driver. It does not
increase the vehicle’s limits and
should not encourage you to
drive more quickly.
Therefore, it can under no circumstances replace the vigilance or responsibility of the driver when manoeuvring the vehicle (the driver
must always be ready for sudden incidents which may occur when driving).
This system optimises the action of
the E.S.P. in the case of pronounced
understeering (loss of front axle road
holding).
Operating principle
A sensor in the steering wheel detects
the direction selected by the driver.
Other sensors throughout the vehicle
measure the actual direction.
The system compares the direction selected by the driver and the actual direction of the vehicle and corrects this
as necessary by applying the brakes
selectively and/or acting on the engine
power.
2.19
ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAM: E.S.P. (2/2)
Disabling the function
The function is deactivated by pressing
switch 1; warning light A will come on
to warn you that the system has been
deactivated.
This action also deactivates the traction control mechanism: the message
‘ASR deselected’ appears on the instrument panel. Refer to the information on “Traction control” in the following pages.

A
Correct this as soon as possible by
pressing switch 1 again.
The function is reactivated automatically when the ignition is switched on or
when a speed of approximately 30 mph
(50 km/h) is exceeded.
Operating faults
When the system detects an operating fault the message “Check ESP” appears on the instrument panel along
with warning lights © and A.
It is impossible to deselect this function
when travelling above a threshold of
approximately 30 mph (50 km/h).
Consult an approved dealer.
Deactivating the A.S.R.
function results in the E.S.P.
function being deactivated.

2.20
TRACTION CONTROL: A.S.R. (1/2)
This system helps to limit skidding on
drive wheels and to control the vehicle
when pulling away or accelerating.
The system also adjusts the engine
speed to the grip available under the
wheels, independently of the pressure
exerted on the accelerator pedal.
A
This function is an additional aid in the event of
critical driving conditions,
enabling the vehicle behaviour to be adapted to suit the driving
conditions.
However, the function does not take

When the function begins to operate,
warning light A flashes to warn you.
If the warning light comes on accompanied by the ‘traction control deselected’
message when the engine is started,
slowly turn the steering wheel from lock
to lock to reinitialise the system.
Operating principle
Using the wheel sensors, the system
measures and compares the speed of
the drive wheels at all times and slows
down their over-rotation.
If a wheel is starting to slip, the system
brakes automatically until the drive supplied becomes compatible with the level
of grip under the wheel again.
2.21
TRACTION CONTROL: A.S.R. (2/2)
Disabling the function
In some situations (driving on very wet
ground: snow, mud, etc. or driving with
snow chains fitted), the system may
reduce the engine output to limit wheelspin. If this is not required, it is possible
to deactivate the function by pressing
switch 1.
The ‘traction control deselected’ message is displayed on the instrument
panel along with warning light A to
inform you.

EMERGENCY BRAKE ASSIST
This system supplements the ABS
and helps reduce vehicle stopping distances.
Operating principle
The system is for detecting an emergency braking situation. In this case,
the braking assistance immediately develops maximum power and may trigger ABS regulation.
ABS braking is maintained as long as
the brake pedal is applied.
Hazard warning lights

suitable engine speed because the automatic system takes into account the
vehicle load and road contour and adjusts itself to the particular driving style
you have chosen.
Economical driving
When driving, always leave the lever
in position D, keeping the accelerator
pedal lightly depressed to ensure automatic gear changes at comparatively
low engine speeds.
Accelerating and overtaking
Depress the accelerator pedal firmly

– Vehicles not fitted with traction
control: on a slippery surface or
surface with a low level of adhesion,
change to manual mode and select
second gear (or even third) before
starting the engine to avoid wheelspin when accelerating.
In very cold weather, the system
may prevent the gears from being
shifted in manual mode until the
gearbox reaches the right temperature.
2.32
AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION (3/3)
Parking the vehicle
When the vehicle is stopped, move the
lever to position P while keeping your
foot on the brake pedal: the gearbox is
in neutral and the drive wheels are mechanically locked by the driveshaft.
Apply the handbrake.
Operating faults
– when driving, if the ‘check gearbox’
message appears on the instrument
panel, it indicates a fault.
Contact your approved Dealer as
soon as possible;
– when driving, if the message “gearbox overheating” appears on the instrument panel, avoid leaving the
lever in position D (or R) where traffic conditions allow: always return to
position N when stationary.
Contact your approved Dealer as
soon as possible;
– If a vehicle with an automatic gearbox breaks down, refer to the information on “Towing” in Section 5.
An impact to the underside of the vehicle while
manoeuvring (e.g.: striking a post, raised kerb or
other street furniture) may result in
damage to the vehicle (e.g.: deformation of an axle).
To avoid any risk of accident, have
your vehicle checked by an approved Dealer.

PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL (1/2)
Operating principle
Ultrasonic sensors, fitted in the vehicle’s rear bumper, measure the distance between the vehicle and an obstacle when reversing.
This measurement is indicated by
beeps which become more frequent the
closer you come to the obstacle, until
they become a continuous beep when
the vehicle is approximately 30 centimetres from the obstacle.
There is a beep when changing to reverse gear.
This function is an additional aid that indicates the
distance between the vehicle and an obstacle whilst
reversing, using sound signals.
Note: make sure that the ultrasonic
sensors are not obscured (by dirt, mud,
snow, etc.).
Under no circumstances should it
replace the driver’s care or responsibility whilst reversing.
The driver should always pay attention to sudden incidents during driving: always ensure that there are no
moving obstacles (such as a child,
animal, pram, bicycle, etc.) or small,
narrow objects such as stones or
posts in your path when manoeuvring.
Operating faults
When the system detects an operating
fault there will be a 5-second, continuous warning beep when reverse
gear is selected. Consult an approved
dealer.
When the vehicle is being driven at
a speed below approximately 6 mph
(10 km/h), certain noises (motorcycle, lorry, pneumatic drill, etc.) may
trigger the beeping sound.

after the ignition is switched off and the
engine restarted.
2.40
An impact to the underside
of the vehicle (e.g.: striking
a post, raised kerb or other
street furniture) may result
in damage to the vehicle (e.g.: deformation of an axle).
To avoid any risk of accident, have
your vehicle checked by an approved Dealer.

– bringing the passenger compartment
to the desired temperature as quickly
as possible.
Prolonged use of air recirculation
can lead to condensation forming on the side windows and windscreen, and discomfort due to the
use of non-renewed air in the passenger compartment.
We therefore advise you to return to

ventilation system does not start instantly at maximum speed: it gradually increases). This may take several
minutes.
Generally speaking, unless there
is a particular reason not to, the
dashboard air vents should remain
open.

During recirculation, air is taken from
the passenger compartment and is recycled, with no air being taken from outside the vehicle.
Air recirculation allows the external atmosphere to be cut off (when driving in
polluted areas, etc.).
Prolonged use of the air recirculation
mode may cause the windows to mist
up or lead to odours, as the air is not
renewed.
We therefore advise you to return to
normal mode (external air) by pressing
button 14 again as soon as the air recirculation function is no longer required,
or return to automatic recirculation by
pressing the AUTO button.
3.15
AIR CONDITIONING: information and advice on use
Operating faults
Fuel consumption
You will normally notice an increase
in fuel consumption (especially
when driving in town) when the air
conditioning is operating. For vehicles fitted with manual air conditioning, switch off the system when it is
not required.
Advice for reducing consumption
and therefore helping to preserve
the environment:
Drive with the air vents open and
the windows closed.
As a general rule, contact your approved dealer in the event of an operating fault.
Do not add anything to the
vehicle’s ventilation circuit
(for example, to remove
bad odours).
There is a risk of damage or of
fire.
– Reduction in de-icing, demisting or air conditioning performance. This may be caused by the
passenger compartment filter
cartridge becoming clogged.
– No cold air is being produced.
Check that the controls are set
correctly and that the fuses are
sound. Otherwise, switch off the
system.
If the vehicle has been parked in
the sun, open the doors for a few
moments to let the hot air escape
before starting the engine.
Maintenance
Refer to the Maintenance Service
Booklet for your vehicle for the inspection frequency.
3.16
Notes
Presence of water under the vehicle. After prolonged use of the air
conditioning system, it is normal for
water to be present under the vehicle. This is caused by condensation.
Do not open the refrigerant fluid circuit. The fluid
may damage eyes or skin.

Bodywork maintenance (1/2)
Protection against the effects
of corrosive agents
Although your vehicle has been treated
with very effective anti-corrosion products, it nevertheless remains subject to
the effects of:
– corrosives in the atmosphere
–atmospheric pollution (urban and
industrial areas),
–saline atmospheres (near the
sea, particularly in hot weather),
–seasonal and damp climatic conditions, (e.g.: road salt in winter,
water from road cleaners, etc.).
– abrasives
Wind-borne dust and sand, mud,
road grit thrown up by other vehicles, etc.
– minor impacts
You should take a minimum number of
precautions in order to safeguard your
vehicle against such risks and not to
lose the benefit of your vehicle’s anticorrosion protection.
4.12
You should not:
– Degrease or clean mechanical components (e.g. the engine compartment), underneath the body, parts
with hinges (e.g. inside the fuel tank
flap) and painted plastic external fittings (e.g. bumpers) using high-pressure cleaning equipment or by spraying on products not approved by our
Technical Department. If adequate
precautions are not taken, this could
give rise to corrosion or operational
faults.
– Wash the vehicle in bright sunlight or
freezing temperatures.
– Scrape off mud or dirt without prewetting.
– Allow dirt to accumulate.
– Allow rust to form following minor impacts.
– Use solvents not approved by our
Technical Department to remove
stains as this could damage the
paintwork.
– Drive frequently in snow or muddy
conditions without washing the vehicle, particularly under the wheel
arches and body.
Bodywork maintenance (2/2)
You should
– Wash your car frequently, with the
engine off, with cleaning products
recommended by our Technical
Department (never use abrasive
products) and be sure to jet-rinse
off:
–spots of tree resin and industrial
grime;
–bird droppings, which cause a
chemical reaction with the paint
that rapidly discolours paintwork and may even cause the
paint to peel off;
Wash the vehicle immediately
to remove these marks since it
is impossible to remove them by
polishing;
– Observe the vehicle stopping distances when driving on gravelled
surfaces to prevent paint damage.
– Repair, or have repaired quickly,
areas where the paint has been damaged, to prevent corrosion spreading.
– Remember to visit the body shop
periodically if your vehicle has an
anti-corrosion warranty. Refer to the
Maintenance Service Booklet.
– Respect local regulations about
washing vehicles (e.g. do not wash
your vehicle on a public highway).
– Before going through a roller type car
wash, return the windscreen wiper
stalk to the Park position (refer to
the information on the “Windscreen
wash/wipe” in Section 1). Check the
mounting of external accessories,
additional lights and mirrors, and
ensure that the wiper blades are secured with adhesive tape.
Remove the radio aerial mast if your
vehicle is fitted with this equipment.
Remember to remove the tape and
refit the antenna after washing.
– Spray mechanical components,
hinges, etc. with products approved
by our Technical Department to
protect them after they have been
cleaned.
–salt, particularly in the wheel
arches and underneath the body
after driving in areas where the
roads have been gritted;
–mud in the wheel arches and underneath the body which form
damp patches.
We have selected special products
to care for your vehicle and you can
obtain these from the manufacturer’s accessory outlets.

TYRE PRESSURE KIT (1/3)
A
B
Do not attempt to use the
inflation kit if the tyre has
been damaged as a result
of driving with a puncture.
The kit is only approved for
inflating the tyres of the vehicle originally equipped
with the kit.
You should therefore carefully check
the condition of the tyre sidewalls
before any operation.
It must never be used to inflate the
tyres of another vehicle, or any other
inflatable object (rubber ring, rubber
boat, etc.).
Driving with underinflated, flat or
punctured tyres can be dangerous
and may make the tyre impossible
to repair.
This repair is temporary
The kit repairs tyres when
tread A has been damaged by objects smaller
than 4 mm. It cannot repair
all types of puncture, such as cuts
more than 4 mm, or cuts in the tyre
sidewall B.
Ensure also that the wheel rim is in
good condition.
5.6
A tyre which has been punctured
should always be inspected (and
repaired, where possible) by a specialist.
When taking a tyre which has been
repaired using this kit to be replaced,
you must inform the specialist.
When driving, vibration may be felt
due to the presence of the repair
product injected into the tyre.
Avoid spillage on skin when handling the repair liquid bottle. If droplets do leak out, rinse them off with
plenty of water.
Keep the repair kit away from children.
Do not dispose of the empty bottle
in the countryside. Return it to your
approved dealer or to a recycling organisation.
The bottle has a limited service life
which is indicated on its label. Check
the expiry date.
Contact an approved dealer to replace the inflation tube and repair
product bottle.

Start driving immediately, and after
6 miles (10 kilometres) or 10 minutes of
driving, stop to check the tyre pressure.
If it is above 1.3 bar, adjust it to the recommended pressure (refer to the information on “Tyre pressures”), otherwise
contact an approved dealer: repair is
not possible.
– adjust the pressure: to increase
it, continue inflation with the kit, to
reduce it, press button 7 located on
the inflation adapter.
If the correct pressure cannot be
achieved, repair is impossible. Do
not drive the vehicle. Consult an approved dealer.
Once the tyre is correctly inflated,
remove the kit: slowly unscrew the inflation adapter 6 to prevent any repair
product from escaping and screw the
hose to the bottle opening to prevent
the product from escaping.
5.8
Please be aware that a
poorly tightened or missing valve cap can make the
tyres less airtight and may
lead to pressure loss.
Always use valve caps identical to
those fitted originally and tighten
them fully.
Precautions when using the
kit
The kit should not be operated for more
than 15 consecutive minutes.
Nothing should be placed
around the driver’s feet
as such objects may slide
under the pedals during
sudden braking manoeuvres and
obstruct their use.
Following repair with the kit,
do not travel further than
120 miles (200 km). In addition, reduce your speed and
under no circumstances exceed
48 mph (80 km/h). The sticker, which
you must affix in a prominent position on the dashboard, reminds you
of this.
Depending on the country or local
legislation, a tyre repaired with the
inflation kit will need to be replaced.

With the wheel on the ground, fully
tighten the bolts and check they are
correctly tightened as quickly as possible (tightening torque 110 Nm).
Anti-theft bolt
If you use anti-theft bolts, fit these
nearest the valve (otherwise it may
not be possible to fit the wheel
trim).
If you have a puncture, replace the wheel as soon as
possible.
A tyre which has been punctured should always be inspected
(and repaired, where possible) by a
specialist.
5.12
If the vehicle is parked on
the hard shoulder, you must
warn other road users of
your vehicle’s presence
with a warning triangle or with other
devices as per the legislation applying to the country you are in.
TYRES (1/3)
Tyre and wheel safety
The tyres are the only contact between
the vehicle and the road, so it is essential to keep them in good condition.
You must make sure that your tyres conform to local road traffic regulations.
1
2
When the tyre tread has been worn
to the level of the warning strips, they
become visible 2: it is then necessary to replace your tyres because the
tread rubber is now only 1.6 mm deep
at most, resulting in poor road holding on wet roads.
An overloaded vehicle, long journeys
by motorway, particularly in very hot
weather, or continual driving on poorly
surfaced minor roads will lead to more
rapid tyre wear and affect safety.
Maintaining the tyres
When they need to be replaced, only tyres of the
same make, size, type and
profile should be used.
Tyres fitted to the vehicle should
either be identical to those fitted
originally or conform to those
recommended by your approved
dealer.
The tyres must be in good condition
and the tread form must have sufficient
depth; tyres approved by our Technical
Department have wear warning
strips 1 which are indicators moulded
into the tread at several points.
Incidents which occur when
driving, such as striking the
kerb, may damage the tyres
and wheel rims, and could
also lead to misalignment of the
front or rear axle geometry. In this
case, have the condition of these
checked by an approved dealer.
5.13
TYRES (2/3)
Tyre pressures
Adhere to the tyre pressures (including
the emergency spare wheel). The tyre
pressures should be checked at least
once a month and additionally before
any long journey (refer to the label affixed to the edge of the driver’s door).
Pressures should be checked when the
tyres are cold; ignore higher pressures
which may be reached in hot weather
or following a fast journey.
If tyre pressures cannot be checked
when the tyres are cold, assume an increase of 0.2 to 0.3 bar (or 3 PSI).
Never deflate a hot tyre.
Emergency spare wheel
Refer to the information on the
“Emergency spare wheel” and instructions on “Changing a wheel” in
Section 5.
Changing wheels around
This practice is not recommended.
Fitting new tyres
Incorrect tyre pressures
lead to abnormal tyre wear
and unusually hot running.
These are factors which
may seriously affect safety and lead
to:
For safety reasons, this operation must be carried out
by a specialist.
Fitting different tyres may
change your vehicle as follows:
– poor road holding,
– risk of bursting or tread separation.
The pressure depends on the load
and the speed of use. Adjust the
pressure according to the conditions of use (refer to the label affixed
to the edge of the driver’s door).
5.14
Please be aware that a
poorly tightened or missing valve cap can make the
tyres less airtight and lead
to pressure loss. Always use valve
caps identical to the originals and
screw them down fully.
– it may mean that your vehicle no
longer conforms to current regulations;
– it may change the way it handles
when cornering;
– it may cause the steering to be
heavy;
– it may affect the use of snow
chains.
TYRES (3/3)
Use in winter
Chains
For safety reasons, fitting snow
chains to the rear axle is strictly forbidden.
Chains cannot be fitted to tyres which
are larger than those originally fitted to
the vehicle.
Chains may only be fitted
to tyres of the same size
as those originally fitted to
your vehicle.
Snow or Winter tyres
Studded tyres
We would recommend that these be
fitted to all four wheels to ensure that
your vehicle retains maximum road
holding.
This type of equipment may only be
used for a limited period and as laid
down by local legislation.
Warning: These tyres sometimes have
a specific direction of rotation and a
maximum speed index which may be
lower than the maximum speed of your
vehicle.
It is necessary to observe the speed
specified by current legislation.
These tyres must, at a minimum, be
fitted to the two front wheels.
Special features of
versions fitted with
165/65 R15 tyres
In all cases, we would recommend
that you contact an approved dealer
who will be able to advise you on
the choice of equipment which is
most suitable for your vehicle.
If you wish to fit studded
tyres, you must use special equipment.
Consult an approved dealer.

5.29
BATTERY: troubleshooting (3/4)
Connecting a battery charger
The battery charger must be compatible with a battery with nominal
voltage of 12 volts.
Switch the engine off and then disconnect both battery leads starting with
the negative terminal.
Do not disconnect the battery when the
engine is running. Follow the instructions given by the manufacturer for
the battery charger you are using.
Only a fully charged and well-maintained battery will have a long and
useful life and enable you to start the
vehicle’s engine normally.
The battery must be kept clean and
dry.
Have the battery’s charge status
checked regularly:
– especially if you use your vehicle for
short journeys or for frequent driving
in town;
– when the exterior temperature drops
(in winter), the charge decreases.
In winter, only use the electrical
equipment that is really necessary;
– finally, you should understand that
the charge decreases naturally as a
result of certain permanent electrical
consumers such as the clock, aftersales accessories, etc.
When many accessories are fitted to
the vehicle, have them connected to
the + after ignition feed. In this case, it
is advisable to have your vehicle fitted
with a battery which has an increased
nominal capacity. Contact an approved
Dealer.
If your vehicle is to be left stationary for
a relatively long time, disconnect the
battery or have it recharged regularly,
particularly during cold weather. It will
then be necessary, with the engine running, to move the steering wheel slowly,
from lock to lock and to reprogram the
electronic equipment with a memory
feature, radio, etc. The battery should
be stored in a cool and dry location protected from frost.
Note: if you have disconnected or recharged a battery, move the steering
wheel slowly from lock to lock to reset
the system.
Special procedures may be
required to charge some
batteries. Contact your approved Dealer.
Avoid all risk of sparks which may
cause an immediate explosion and
charge the battery in a well-ventilated area. Risk of serious injury.

Towing weight (Towing a caravan, boat, etc.)
– It is important to comply with the towing weights, governed by local legislation in each country and, in particular, laid down in
the Road Traffic Regulations. Contact an approved Dealer for any modifications to towing equipment.
– When towing, under no circumstances may the total train weight (vehicle + trailer) be exceeded. However the following is
permitted:
– the Maximum permissible weight at the rear may be exceeded by no more than 15%,
– the maximum permissible all-up weight may be exceeded by no more than 10% or 100 kg (whichever occurs first).
In either case, the maximum speed of the towing assembly must not exceed 60 mph (100 km/h) and the tyre pressure must be
increased by 0.2 bar (3 PSI). In all cases, comply with local legislation.
– The engine output and climbing capability are reduced with altitude. We recommend that the maximum load be reduced by
10% at an altitude of 1,000 metres and by an additional 10% for each 1,000 metres thereafter.
