Driver's and front passenger's seats
When you switch on the ignition :
• If the driver's seat belt is not fastened, the warning lamp 1 illuminates in
the instrument panel.
• If the passenger's seat belt is not fastened, the warning lamp 3 lights
up.
Above 20 km / h, the warning lamp flashes for non-fastening/unfastening,
accompanied by a message and a sound signal for around 2 minutes. Then
the warning lamp(s) 1 and/or 3 remain on.
The driver's and the front and rear
pasengers' seats have sensors
that detect non-fastening/unfastening of the seat belts.
The fastened/non-fastened status
of the seat belts for each type of
seat is indicated by the illumination
or flashing of the warning lamps 1,
2 and 3.
When you switch on the ignition, warning lamp 2 lights up to make the driver
and any passengers aware.
Once the doors are closed and the engine started, a message tells you the
fastening status of the rear belts for 30 seconds.
After this time, if one or more of the rear belts are not fastened :
• Warning lamp 2 comes on, if your speed is less than around 20 km / h.
• Warning lamp 2 flashes, accompanied by a message and a sound signal
for about two minutes, if your speed is above around 20 km / h.
Note :
• The detection of non-fastening of rear seat belts is deactivated when you
switch off the ignition or if one of the vehicle's doors is opened.
• A child seat installed on the front passenger's seat may not be
detected.

Your vehicle may be equipped with
an ANTI-INTRUSION ALARM. This
provides :
• Exterior perimeter protection by
means of detectors on the vehicle access points (doors, boot,
bonnet) as well as on the electrical supply.
• Interior volumetric protection
by means of ultrasonic sensors
(detecting movement inside the
passenger compartment). This
can be deactivated using the
control 1.
Anglais_indexe.indd Sec1:37
The installation also has a siren,
and a warning lamp on the control 1 which is visible from outside
the vehicle, indicating the three
possible statuses of the alarm :
• Alarm not active (disarmed),
warning lamp off.
• Alarm active (armed), the warning lamp flashes slowly.
• Alarm triggered (signalling an
intrusion), the warning lamp
flashes rapidly if the alarm is
deactivatéd by a press on the
control A. It stops as soon as
you switch on the ignition.
Note : If there is a malfunction,
the warning lamp remains permanently on.
Unlock the doors with the key. The
siren triggers. Enter the vehicle,
insert the key in the ignition and
turn it to the drive position to stop
the siren. Otherwise the siren will
continue for approximately 30 seconds.

OPERATING THE ALARM
Deactivating the volumetric detection
First make sure all the doors are closed.
The alarm is armed by pressing button B on the remote
control.
With the alarm armed, the protections are active after 5
seconds (perimeter) and 45 seconds (volumetric).
When the alarm is armed (on standby), any intrusion
will trigger the siren for 30 seconds, accompanied by
the direction indicators lighting up.
The alarm then goes back on standby, but the triggering remains memorised and is signalled by the rapid
flashing of the warning lamp on control 1 after you have
deactivated the alarm with a press on the unlocking
button A. The flashing stops when you switch on the
ignition.
The siren is also triggered if there is a cutting of the
electrical supply. To stop it, restore the electrical supply
then press on the unlocking button A.
Note :
• If you want to lock your vehicle without arming the
alarm, just lock with the key only.
• If you lock your vehicle and a door, or the boot, is still
open, the central locking does not operate but the
alarm will arm itself after approx. 45 seconds.
Note : The siren is automatically deactivated (for example for disconnecting the battery) as soon as the vehicle
is unlocked using the remote control.
You can operate the alarm with perimeter protection
only, by deactivating the volumetric protection (if for
example you wish to leave an animal in the vehicle).
For this, switch off the ignition then immediately press
button 1 for at least one second.
The warning lamp on button 1 should come permanently on. It will start to flash when the alarm is armed.
Arm the alarm by locking your vehicle with the remote
control.

Range
This is the distance that can still be travelled on the
amount of fuel remaining in the tank. When the distance
that can still be travelled is less than around 30 km (or
20 miles), only four dashes are displayed.
Instantaneous consumption
This is the result from the consumption recorded

above 30 km / h.
Distance to be travelled
To enter it, see « Multifunction display ».
Distance travelled
This is the distance that has been travelled since the
last reset to zero of the Journey selected.
Average consumption
This is the relationship between the fuel consumed and
the distance travelled since the last reset to zero of the

Average speed
This is obtained, from the last reset to zero of the trip
computer, by dividing the distance travelled by the time
taken (with ignition switched on).

The deflation detection system is a driving aid, but which does not absolve the driver from the need to be vigilant and
responsible.
This system does not dispense with the requirement to check the tyres on a regular basis (see « Vehicle identification »), to make sure that the vehicle is behaving correctly and to avoid premature tyre wear arising from driving too
fast etc..
Do not forget to check the pressure in the spare wheel.
Note : If you drive at high speed, the system reminds you of the importance of checking your tyre pressures. This
information can be deactivated by a CITROËN dealer.
Any repair or replacement of a tyre on a wheel that is equipped with a sensor must be carried out
by a CITROËN dealer.
The system may suffer from temporary interference caused by radio transmissions on neighbouring

UNLOCKING IN
EMERGENCY
In the event of a malfunctioning
of the electric parking brake or of a
battery failure and if your gearbox
is not in the park position (P) :
1.Open the lower compartment in
the central armrest by actioning
the control B.
2.Detach the CD storage section
by pulling on the tabs C.
3.Disengage the strap from its
location D.
4.Pull the strap the unlock the
brake. A loud click confirms that
the brake is unlocked.
Remark : Presence of the diagnostic socket
Take care not to place dusty or damp items close to the socket E, which is
vital to the maintenance operations on your vehicle.
This strap cannot apply the parking brake. To re-apply the electric parking
brake (after first resolving the malfunction or the battery failure), pull then
release the control A. The time for applying the brake subsequent to the
emergency unlocking will be longer.

5.Make sure that you position
the strap back in its location D.
Otherwise, applyng the brake
will not be possible after five
attempts.
Contact a CITROËN dealer.
Note : During the emergency unlocking, the warning lamp for the electric
parking brake will light up
in the instrument panel.
Note : It is essential to
make sure that the parking brake warning lamp
does indeed light up in the

BRAKES
62
If the Electric Parking Brake is released, the lighting of this warning lamp along with the STOP
warning lamp, accompanied by a message, indicates either that the brake fluid level is low or that
the braking distributor is malfunctioning. It is essential to stop the vehicle. Consult a CITROËN
dealer as soon as possible.
ABS system
The ABS system enhances your safety by preventing the wheels from locking in the event of sudden braking
or in conditions of poor road adherence. It enables you to retain control of the steering.
The functioning capability of all the electrical components essential to the ABS is monitored electronically
before and during your journey. The ABS warning lamp lights up when you switch on the ignition: it should go out
after a few seconds.
If the monitoring warning lamp does not go out, that means that the ABS has disconnected because there is a fault.
Also, the fact that the monitoring warning lamp comes on during the journey shows that the ABS system is inactive.
In both cases, the normal braking system remains efficient, exactly as on a vehicle without ABS. However, in order
for the security associated with the correct functioning of the ABS to be restored, the vehicle should be examined as
soon as possible by a CITROËN dealer.
On roads with poor adherence (chippings, snow, ice etc.), it is always imperative to drive with prudence.
SYSTEM OF EMERGENCY BRAKING ASSISTANCE
The emergency braking assistance system helps you to attain the required braking pressure more rapidly, thus to
reduce the stopping distance. It operates as a function of the speed of action on the brake pedal, decreasing the
resistance to this action. To prolong this action of the emergency braking assistance system, simply keep your foot
on the brake pedal.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAMME (ESP) AND TRACTION
CONTROL (ASR)
These systems are closely associated with ABS and additional to it. In the
event of a loss of control of the vehicle by the driver, the ESP ESP system
acts automatically on one or more wheels and also on the engine to bring
the vehicle back on trajectory. The ASR ASR system optimises traction and
prevents wheel spin by acting on the brakes of the driving wheels as well as
on the engine. It also improves steering stability during acceleration.
A
OPERATION
When either the ESP or the ASR system is brought into operation
the warning lamp « ESP/ASR » flashes.
DEACTIVATION
In exceptional conditions (vehicle stuck in snow, soft ground, etc.) it may
prove useful to deactivate the ESP/ASR systems to allow the wheels to spin
and thus regain traction.
Press on button A, the « ESP/ASR » warning lamp, as well as the lamp on
the button A, light up. The ESP/ASR systems are no longer active.
The ESP/ASR systems will activate again :
• Automatically after the ignition has been switched off.
• Automatically when you drive at above approx. 50 km / h.
• Manually with another press on button A.
The ESP system offers increased
driving safety but is not in place to
encourage the driver to take additional risks or to drive at excessive
speeds.
The functioning of this system is
subject to compliance with the
manufacturer’s recommendations
on wheels (tyres and rims), brake
parts and electronic components,
as well as with the assembly and
repair procedures approved by
CITROËN.
After any collision, have this system
checked by a CITROËN dealer.
OPERATIONAL ANOMALY
If the systems malfunction, the « ESP/ASR » warning lamp comes on,
accompanied by a message on the multifunction display.
Contact a CITROËN dealer to have the system checked.

In addition to the catalytic converter, this filter contributes actively to the preserving of air quality, by collecting the
polluting particles that have not been burnt off. Black exhaust fumes are thus eliminated.
CLOGGING OF THE PARTICLE FILTER
If there is a risk of clogging, a message appears on the multifunction screen, accompanied by a sound
signal and the lighting of the SERVICE warning lamp.
This alert is caused by the particle filter starting to be saturated (in exceptionally prolonged urban driving, for example : reduced speed, traffic jams, etc.).
To regenerate the filter, it is advised to drive, as soon as possible when traffic conditions permit, at a speed of 60 km / h
or more for at least 5 minutes, until the alert message disappears. If this alert persists, contact a CITROËN dealer.
Note : If the vehicle has been running for long periods at very low speeds or at idle, vapour emissions may be seen
coming from the exhaust under acceleration. These have no consequences for the running of the vehicle or for the
environment.
The simultaneous lighting of the SERVICE warning lamp and the depollution system warning
lamp, accompanied by a message and a sound signal, indicates an increased risk of clogging.
Contact a CITROËN dealer as soon as possible.
DIESEL ADDITIVE LEVEL
If the additive level is low, a message appears on the multifunction screen, accompanied by a sound signal and the

AIR CONDITIONING
Air inlet
This system automatically adjusts the temperature, the
flow of air and the distribution of air inside the cabin,
depending on your desired comfort level.
Provided you retain automatic mode (by pressing button
« AUTO ») and all the air vents are open, you will maintain an optimum comfort level, also removing humidity
and misting, whatever the ambient climatic conditions.
The temperature inside the cabin cannot be lower than
the temperature outside if the air conditioning is not
operating.
To be effective, the air conditioning should only be used
with the windows closed. If after a lengthy stop in bright
sunlight the interior temperature is excessive, air the
passenger compartment by opening the windows for a
few moments, then close them again.
To keep the air conditioning compressor well sealed, it
is essential to operate the air conditioning at least once
in every month.
The air conditioning operates by using power from the
engine. This results in a slight increase in fuel consumption.
Check that the exterior grille for the air inlet, at the bottom of the windscreen, is clean and free of dead leaves,
snow, etc..
If washing the vehicle with a high pressure jet, avoid
targeting the air inlet zone.
Sensors
The automatic regulation of the air conditioning inside
the cabin uses a number of sensors (sunlight, ambient
temperature, inside temperature, etc.) relieving you of
the need to make your own adjustments within a normal
temperature range.
The humidity sensor is there to prevent misting inside
the vehicle.
Be careful not to obstruct the sensors A and C.
Anglais_indexe.indd Sec1:75
III
Air circulation
For your comfort we advise you to maintain a proper
distribution of air within the cabin, both at the front and
at the rear.
The air vents to the face have thumbwheels so that you
can adjust the flow of air, and grilles to orient the direction.
There are air vents on the floor underneath the front
seats and on the rear control panel, for enhanced heating of the rear seat positions.
Do not obstruct the air outlets located in the boot area.
Dust/pollen filter
There is a filter for excluding pollen and dust.
This filter has to be changed according to the vehicle
maintenance schedule. See « Maintenance Guide ».
Additional heating
Vehicles with an HDi engine may be provided with automatic additional heating for enhanced comfort.
It is normal to notice slight odours or smoke emissions,
especially when the vehicle is idling or stationary.

Notes :
• When starting from cold, in order to prevent unwanted
cold air, the air flow will increase only gradually to its
optimum level.
• If you enter the vehicle after a fairly prolonged stop
and the temperature inside the vehicle is far from
comfortable, it serves no purpose to modify the
temperature that is displayed as an attempt to go
immediately to the desired comfort level. The system
automatically uses all of its power to compensate
the temperature gap as quickly as possible.
Notes :
• Water arising from the condensation in the air conditioning drains out through a hole provided for this
purpose ; a pool of water may thus form underneath
the vehicle when stationary.
• Whatever the time of year, even in cool weather the
air conditioning is useful in removing humidity and
misting.
• You are advised to have the air conditioning system checked on a regular basis. See « Maintenance
Guide ».
• If you are towing a heavy trailer and outside temperatures are high, the air conditioning may be temporarily paused if the engine cooling requires this.

with the logo TOP TETHER
behind the head restraint.
ISOFIX child seats have two
latches which are easy to secure
on the two bottom rings a and b.
Some ISOFIX child seats also have
a top belt which is for attaching on
the ISOFIX top ring c.
To attach the top belt, raise the
head restraint of the vehicle seat,
then pass the buckle between the
two supports. Next fix the buckle
on the top ring c and tension the
top belt.
This fixing system is intended for
children weighing up to 18 kg.

A
A
While you are refuelling, the
engine must be stopped and the
ignition switched off.
For a petrol engine with a catalytic converter, unleaded fuel is
compulsory.
The filler neck is narrower to ensure
that only unleaded petrol can be
put in.
When you are seeking to fill your
tank, do not persist after the
third cut-off ; that could cause
your vehicle to malfunction.
To open the flap, press button A.
Undo the cap and attach it to the
tab on the inside of the flap.
Note : The fuel flap is locked when
you lock your vehicle with the
remote control.
The petrol engines are designed to
run on RON 95.
However,
for
better
performance (petrol engine), we recommend RON 98
If you should put in fuel that is not suitable for your vehicle's
engine type, it is imperative to have the tank drained before
you start the engine again.

MAINTENANCE
TOWBAR
if cleaning the vehicle with a high
pressure system :
• Your Piloted Deflector has to be
closed.
• It is not advisable to clean the
underside of the vehicle, for
fear of damaging the electric
parking brake.
• As water may penetrate into
the vehicle interior via the door
apertures, do not target these
areas.
(Boat, caravan, etc.)
It is recommended that you
have your towbar installed and
removed by a CITROËN dealer.
If you are climbing a steep gradient
and the engine gets excessively
hot, certain functions become unavailable (e.g. sequential control of
the automatic gearbox, the air conditioning).
If you are towing, it is necesaary
to deactivate the parking assistance by pressing the control on the
dashboard. See « Parking assistance ».
It is recommended that remove
the towing ball, so that it does not
interfere with the functioning of the
proximity sensors, when you are
not using a trailer.

Recommendations :
• Spread the load evenly, avoiding overloading on one
side.
• Position the heaviest weight as low down as possible.
• Tie the load down securely and add warning signs if
it is protruding.
• Drive conservatively, as the vehicle will be more vulnerable to side winds.
The stability of your vehicle may be altered.
• Remove the roof rack or roof bars when you are not
using them
Do not exceed the maximum permitted
load.
For the maximum distributed load on the
roof bars : see the chapter « General ».

ADVICE ON ADJUSTING THE DRIVING POSITION
Adjusting the seat
See « Front seats ».
• Reach :
Adjust the seat so as to be able to :
- Fully depress the clutch.
- Place your right foot on the accelerator and your left foot on the foot
rest for driving.
Your thighs should be supported by the seat cushion.
• Backrest angle :
Adjust the angle of the backrest so that your back is comfortably supported along the full height of the seat. For the seat belts to be fully effective, do not drive with the backrest inclined excessively.
Head restraint :
For the head restraint to fulfil its role as an effective safety component,
the top of it should be at least as high as the top of the occupant’s head
or, failing that, positioned to its maximum height.
3 Incorrect (too far away)
Steering column adjustment
See « Steering column adjustment ».
Adjust the steering wheel so that
your arms are slightly bent in the
« quarter-past-nine »
position
when grasping the steering wheel.
Ensure that you can see all the
dashboard displays.
Floor mat on driver's side
To avoid your feet becoming jammed under the pedals :
• Make sure that the floor mat is correctly positioned.
• Never fit more than one floor mat superimposed.
Anglais_indexe.indd Sec2:II
As a matter of safety,
do not attempt to adjust
the driving position
when the vehicle is in
motion.

Legislation makes it compulsory for all the vehicle's occupants to wear seat
belts, including pregnant women and however short the journey.
Never deactivate the passenger's airbag when a passeger is present (unless
a child in a rear-facig child seat).
A warning lamp informs you if the driver's and/or front/rear passengers' seat
belts are not fastened, when the ignition is switched on.
In the event of a collision or on emergency braking, the seat belt will hold you
in your seat, preventing you from being thrown from the vehicle.
Pyrotechnically pretensioned seat belts with force-limiters
In the event of a collision :
• The pretensioners pull back the front seat belts. The occupants are thus
held more firmly against their seats.
• The force limiters reduce the pressure of the seat belt against the occupant’s chest, thus enhancing the protection that the seat belt provides.
Warning
When
the
pretensioners
are
deployed, there is a light discharge
of harmless smoke and a loud
noise, both due to the detonation
of the integral explosive cartridges
that activate them.
Depending on the nature and the
force of the impact, this triggering
may happen prior to, and independently of, the deployment of the
airbags.
In all cases, the airbag warning
lamp comes on.
Anglais_indexe.indd Sec2:III
Seat belts and pyrotechnic pretensioner systems
They must be replaced following a deployment, this preferably by a CITROËN
dealer or by an authorised repairer.
By reason of the safety regulations in force, any check or any replacement
should preferably be carried out by the CITROËN network which guarantees
the work and ensures that it is done correctly.
Any repair that is not done in strict compliance with requirements could
result in the systems operating ncorrectly or randomly, with the risk of
bodily injuries being caused.

To unfasten the belt, press on the
red button in the buckle.
The belt retracts automatically
when not in use.
Recommendations
Functioning of the seat belt
Pull the belt down in front of you in
a steady movement, making sure
that it does not become twisted.
Press the fastening into its buckle.
Check that it is properly secured
and that the automatic locking
mechanism operates correctly by
pulling sharply on the belt strap.
The abdominal part of the strap
should be positioned as low down
as possible in the lap and as tight
as possible.
The chest part should be positioned if possible in the channel of
the shoulder.
Each belt has a reel that adjusts its
length automatically to the girth of
the seat occupant
Anglais_indexe.indd Sec2:IV
To be effective, a seat belt :
• Must be able to restrain a single
person of adult size
• Must not bear any signs of
being cut or frayed.
Do not swap buckles, as then they
would not fulfil their proper roles.
Before and after use, make sure
that the belt is correctly retracted.
If the seats have armrests, the
central part of the belt should pass
underneath.
Positioning of the belt recommended
for
pregnant
women
Position the lower part of the belt
as low down as possible on the lap,
so that it exerts no pressure on the
abdomen.
• Always adjust your seat belt while the vehicle is stationary.
• Do not pass the belt over hard or breakable objects that you
may have in your pockets.
• Never use clamps or clips to loosen your seat belt.
• Never carry a child on your knee.
• Regularly check the condition and cleanliness of the seat belts.
See « Maintenance ».
• Have the seat belts checked periodically by a CITROËN dealer as
well as after any accident, even a minor one.

Your vehicle may have :
• A driver’s airbag located in the steering wheel, under
the central cover.
• A knees airbag under the steering column.
• A passenger's airbag in the dashboard.
• Two side airbags located in the backrests of the driver’s seat and front passenger’s seat (door side).
• Two curtain airbags located on the interior edges of
the roof.
• The equipment for control, detection and operation.
These deploy the airbags depending on the intensity, angle and point of impact of the collision.
The passenger's airbag can be deactivated. See
« Deactivation of passenger's airbag ».
Each time you switch on the ignition, a warning lamp
lights up for a few seconds in the instrument panel.
If there is a fault, depending on version :
• The warning lamp flashes for a few minutes then
remains on.
• The warning lamp does not light up.
• A message appears on the display.
At the earliest opportunity, consult a CITROËN dealer
or authorised repairer.

AIRBAGS
User Precautions :
• The wearing of seat belts is compulsory for all
vehicle occupants.
• Children under ten years of age should always be
carried in the rear seats. See « Child safety ».
• The driver and passengers should always adopt a
normal upright sitting position to permit the airbags
to deploy.
• Never fix or attach anything to the steering wheel
central boss, to the sides of the front seats, to the pillars or to the roof, as this could cause facial injuries
should the airbags be activated.
• Never drive with your hands on the steering wheel
central boss or holding the branches of the steering
wheel.
• Do not smoke in the vehicle (risk of burns or injury
should the airbag be deployed.
• Do not leave any accessory or object on the dashboard or between your body and the airbag (risk of
malfunction or personal injury).
• Fit only seat covers that are approved by CITROËN.
Warning
When an airbag is deployed, there is a light discharge of
harmless smoke and a loud noise, both due to the detonation of the explosive cartridge that is integral to the
airbag system. The smoke is non-toxic but may cause
irritation to people suffering from respiratory problems.
The noise of the detonation may affect hearing for a
brief time.
Vacate the vehicle as soon as possible after the accident (provided it is safe to do so). If this is not possible,
open the windows or doors.
Despite all the safety precautions recommended, injuries to the head, arms and body cannot be excluded
following an airbag deployment under certain particular
conditions, considering the very nature of this type of
equipment and its mode of operation. This device can
only operate one single time. It cannot operate to provide further protection in the event of a second impact.
It is essential for the system to be repaired by a CITROËN dealer or authorised repairer.
IMPORTANT
For your safety, it is essential :
That you always sit with your back fully
supported by the backrest.
To ensure that passengers never place their feet
on the dashboard.

Front airbags and knees airbags
The airbags are safety devices, complementary to the seat belts, designed to
operate in the event of a violent frontal impact. In such a situation, their role is to
inflate and to absorb the impact of the front occupant(s) on the dashboard, and
thus to reduce the risks of injuries to the head, chest and lower limbs.
These airbags will not be deployed by a minor frontal impact, or by a side or
rear impact, nor by the vehicle overturning, as their use would not serve any
purpose.
The front passenger’s airbag can be deactivated. See « Passenger's airbag
deactivation ».
Operation :
In the event of a violent frontal impact, the airbag(s) inflate instantaneously, tearing the break points that are worked
into the steering wheel central cover, the dashboard on the passenger's side and/or under the steering column. The
airbag(s) cushion the forward projection of the occupants(s) then rapidly deflate. The material of the front airbags may
then cause irritations to the skin.
Side airbags and curtain airbags
They are designed to come into play in the event of a substantial lateral impact
and are oriented to that particular impact zone.
The role of the side airbag is to place itself between the occupant (driver or front
passenger) and the door panel, thus limiting the risk of injuries to the chest.
The role of the curtain airbag is to place itself between the front or rear occupant and the windows, thus limiting the risk of injuries to the head.
These airbags will not be deployed by a minor impact on the side of the vehicle,
or by a front or rear impact, nor by the vehicle overturning, as their use would
not serve any purpose.
Operation :
In the event of a violent side impact, the side and curtain airbags on the side affected inflate instantly.
The side airbag absorbs the projection of the occupant on the door panel and then rapidly deflates.
The curtain airbags are located on the interior edges of the roof and deploy along the length of the side door windows.
The complete process takes approximately one tenth of a second.

When children are in the car
For maximum safety, consult the
competent authority in your country to be sure that you know the
rules for the carrying of children.
Observe the following recommendations :
• Children should not be left alone
in the vehicle.
• All children less than 12
years of age must be carried
in child seats that are appropriate to and approved for
their ages and weights. They
must be installed in seat positions equipped with seat belts.
Check that the child seat is in
compliance with current legislation, ensuring that it bears an
orange label featuring the range
of weights for which it is suitable
as well as its approval no..
Anglais_indexe.indd Sec2:VIII
CHILD SAFETY
• It is compulsory for a child
weighing less than 9 kg to be
transported in the rear facing
position. It is recommended
to use this position for as long
as possible (up to 2 or 3 years
old).
• Statistically, the safest seats for
the carrying of children are the
vehicle’s rear seat positions.
CITROËN recommends you to
install your child in one of the
rear seat positions, even when
using a rear-facing child seat.
• Children must not under any
pretext be carried on the knees
of a passenger (risk of being
thrown against the dashboard
or windscreen should there be
a collision).
• Children must not be allowed to
stand between the backrests of
the front seats, as they could be
thrown forwards under sudden
braking or in the event of a collision.
• The rear doors are equipped
with a « Child Safety » locking
device. This allows the doors
to be opened from the outside
unless they are under central
locking.
Each time you switch on the
ignition, check that this device
is activated.
• Never leave a child in a vehicle
that is exposed to sunshine.
• Before opening a door, make
sure that it is safe to do so.
• When leaving your vehicle,
remove the ignition key and
properly apply the parking
brake.
• Do not leave the key in the
vehicle, as children could lock
themselves in, either using the
remote control or by pressing
the central locking button.
Regulations for the carriage
of children in the front passenger seat position
If the child is travelling in a rearfacing child seat, it is essential to
deactivate the passenger's front
airbag. Otherwise the child risks
being killed or seriously injured
should the airbag deploy.
In the front passenger's seat, children less than 10 years of age
must not be carried « forward-facing », except if :
• The rear seats are occupied by
other children.
• The rear seats cannot be
used (if they are folded or not
present).
If your child is travelling forwardfacing in the front passenger seat
position, slide the front passenger
seat to an intermediate position
and leave the airbag activated.

In wet,
weather
cold
and
foggy
• Keep your safety distance, slow
down, switch on dipped headlamps or foglamps if there are
areas of fog.
• Tyre adhesion is reduced on
wet or slippery roads, particularly if tyre treads are worn.
• Aquaplaning can occur even
with tyres in good condition.
• Change the windscreen wiper
blades when they start to leave
streaks on the glass.
• Be particularly careful if the
ambient temperature is 3°C or
lower (risk of ice on the roads).
• Never use the windscreen or
rear screen wash/wipe in frosty
weather on starting.
Driving on snow
• The very poor grip will considerably reduce traction power,
control of steering and braking.
• If you are using snow tyres,
drive carefully without sudden
acceleration or braking.
• Do not spin the wheels when
starting off, drive at reduced
speed.
• Driving downhill, make maximum use of engine braking
(in second gear or first gear),
touching the brakes as delicately as possible.
• Snow chains and snow tyres
are available from the CITROËN network, to offer you
greater safety.
Damaged and flooded roads
• Driving on poor road surfaces
can cause damage to tyres,
wheel rims, underbody and
suspension geometry settings.
• On flooded roads, water could
be sucked into the engine, causing severe and irreversible damage (destroying the engine).
• If you unexpectedly encounter
a flooded road and the depth of
water is such that it would touch
the underbody of the vehicle,
stop immediately and find an
alternative route.
*This list of recommendations is
not exhaustive.
Anglais_indexe.indd Sec2:X
Lighting and visibility
• Ensure that you can see and be
seen by others.
• Check that the windows and
the interior and exterior rear
view mirrors are clean. For
optimum wipe quality, use the
screen wash products that are
distributed by the CITROËN
network. Silicones are not recommended.
• Clean the wiper blades regularly using a soft cloth with
screen wash fluid. Residues of
grease, silicone product and
fuel will adversely affect the
wiper blades.
• Check that the rear view mirrors
are correctly positioned.
• Always carry a set of spare
bulbs.
• The vehicle lighting equipment
is designed specially for your
safety and that of others. All
lamps must be in good working
order, correctly adjusted and
clean.
ADVICE
Replace the wiper blades once or
twice a year, for example in Spring
and Autumn.

OPERATE SAFELY
Work in safety
Any operation under the bonnet necessitates a number
of safety precautions.
Be particularly careful both before and during all checks
under the bonnet.
• Allow the engine to cool down.
• Keep children away from the vehicle.
• Make sure that you possess the necessary tools
and expertise.
The first rule of safety is to choose a suitable environment.
Do not use open roads or public rights of way. Other
traffic represents a hazard. If you need the engine
running, work outdoors and not in a confined space as
there is a health risk from exhaust gases.
Make sure that your vehicle is not parked over inflammable materials (dry grass, fuels, etc.) as the very high
temperatures associated with the catalytic converter
could ignite them.
Choose firm, level ground sheltered from the wind. Keep
children away from the vehicle.
Bonnet
Before opening the bonnet, make sure that your hands
and clothing are protected. Allow the engine to cool
down.
Make sure that the bonnet is stable in the open position.
Beware of gusts of wind that could cause the bonnet to
fall and cause seriuous injuries.
Moving parts
There will be a certain number of moving parts when
the engine is running.
Even when the engine is switched off, the cooling fan
could still operate without warning. Do not wear loose
clothing (ties, scarfs, etc.), tie back long hair, all of
which could become entangled in a pulley or be dragged
into a drive belt.
On the road
If a warning lamp comes on while you are driving, stop
the vehicle with due regard to the safety of other road
users and switch off the ignition.
Puncture
Switch on your hazard warning lamps and get all passengers away to a place of safety, well away from the
traffic (for example behind crash barriers or on the grass
verge).
Position the jack correctly to ensure that the vehicle is
stable. See « Changing a wheel ».
Never attempt any repairs under a vehicle that has been
jacked up, without first supporting it on axle stands or
some other reliable support.
Never underestimate the difficulties of
the repairs intended. Make sure that you
possess the necessary tools and level of
expertise to enable you to work in safety

Radiator
Fuel cut-off switch
In normal usage, the coolant temperature reaches or
exceeds 100°C. Never remove the cap of a radiator
that is hot: there is danger from projection of scalding
liquid and steam. See « Levels ».
The antifreeze contained in the coolant lends it the following properties :
• Protection against low temperatures (initial protection: -35°C).
• Anti-corrosion protection.
• Resistance to high operating temperatures
See the Maintenance Guide.
Your vehicle is equipped with a safety device which cuts
off the fuel supply in the event of a collision.
Oil
Petrol
Be extremely careful when decanting or draining petrol
or when repairing petrol leaks because of the high risk
of fire.
Diesel fuel
The diesel fuel system of An HDI vehicle is a high pressure system. Any repair work must be carried out by
suitably qualified personnel, such as can be guaranteed by the CITROËN network.
In normal use, the engine oil can exceed temperatures
of 130°C and thus can cause serious burns.
Exhaust system
Beware of the very high temperatures attained by the
various components of the exhaust system (risk of
burns).
AT ALL TIMES :
• Avoid attempting repairs while close to moving traffic. If this is absolutely necessary, take all possible
precautions.
• Ensure that your passengers seek safety away from the vehicle and off the roadway (road verges and
motorway hard shoulders are not safe places.
• Keep children away from the vehicle and in safety.
• Operate the hazard lamps and erect warning signs.
• Preferably summon assistance from a CITROËN-approved breakdown service.
• For guaranteed quality and safety, useCITROËN products.

BRAKING SYSTEM
XIII
Braking system
ABS system
Brake pads and linings
Your vehicle’s most important
safety feature, the braking system,
is provided by brake discs (or discs
and drums) and a dual hydraulic
circuit.
When the engine is running, power
assistance is provided so that
pedal effort is reduced.
The ABS system enhances your
safety by preventing the wheels
from locking in the event of sudden braking or in conditions of poor
road adherence. It enables you to
retain control of the steering.
Brake pad wear varies according
to the way you use your vehicle
(e.g. urban driving, frequent stops,
your style of driving or the type of
road).
Parking brake
Subject to ageing, the fluid should
be drained and refilled periodically.
Dirty fluid can reduce the efficiency
of the hydraulic system.
Follow the instructions in the
maintenance guide.
Note Follow the servicing schedules listed in the maintenance
guide scrupulously to ensure optimum performance and reliability.
Brakes
• If the brake warning lamp
comes on while you are driving,
stop immediately and contact
a CITROËN dealer.
• On wet roads, or after washing
the vehicle, there can be a slight
delay in brake response. From
time to time, apply the brakes
briefly so that the heat generated can dispel any moisture.
See « Driving : Brakes ».
Before leaving the vehicle, make
sure that the parking brake is sufficiently applied to prevent the
vehicle from moving if on a slope,
or if accidentally or deliberately
pushed.
As an additional precaution on
steep slopes :
• Apply the parking brake.
• Engage a gear.
• Turn the steering towards the
kerb (if there is one).
Brake fluid
When the engine is not running, the braking system will not
have power-assistance
The effort required on the brake pedal will be considerably
increased.
Take all reasonable safety precautions if you have to move the
vehicle.
Never drive the vehicle without the engine running.

12V BATTERY
Removal
If the vehicle is fitted with an alarm, this should be deactivated before disconnecting the battery.
Disconnect the battery leads, negative lead first.
Refitting
Ensure that the battery is correctly positioned.
On certain models, the flange should be midway
between the two battery terminals.
Reconnect the battery starting with the positive lead
first.
Precautions
• Ensure that the posts and terminals are clean.
• If they become sulphated (white deposit), disconnect and clean them.
• Never disconnect the leads while the engine is running.
• Never recharge the battery without first disconnecting the battery leads.
Recharging using a battery charger
The voltage must never exceed 15,5 volts and the
charging current must never exceed 20 % of the rating
marked on the battery casing (for example: 250 A, - setting: 50 amps maximum).
Length of charge : 24 hours maximum.
Only battery chargers with a constant, regulated voltage output should be used.
If the vehicle is not in use for a prolonged
period
If the vehicle is to be taken out of use for periods of
more than one month, the battery should be disconnected.
If a metal object makes a contact between the two battery terminals or between the battery + and the
bodywork, this causes a short-circuit (risk of fire and serious burns).
The battery releases minute quantities of hydrogen, a gas which is explosive under certain conditions.
Never use a flame or create sparks close to the battery.
The battery contains dilute sulphuric acid which is highly corrosive :
• When handling batteries, always protect your face and especially your eyes.
• In the event of any contact with the skin, rinse immediately with copious amounts of fresh water.
Anglais_indexe.indd Sec2:XIV
06/10/2005 14:14:27
TYRES
Inspect the tyres regularly for wear
and damage such as cuts, cracks
or bulges, etc..
Remove
any
foreign
bodies
(stones, pieces of metal) that may
have pierced the tyre. They could
cause further damage to the tyre
carcass.
Correctly inflated tyres provide :
• Optimum roadholding.
• Precise, light steering.
• Improved fuel economy.
• Increased tyre life.
Use the tyre pressures recommended by CITROËN.
Check the tyre pressures when the
tyres are cold, on a frequent basis.
Never reduce the pressure of a
hot tyre
Puncture
A punctured tyre should always
be removed from the rim and thoroughly examined for any secondary damage before attempting any
repair. When a repair is possible, it
should be carried out as soon as
possible to prevent further damage
to the tyre.
Tyre repair should be carried out by
a tyre specialist who will assume
responsibility for the repair.
XV
Under-inflated tyres can
overheat, leading to structural damage and the risk
of a blow-out.
Impacts with kerbs, potholes or
hidden obstructions in the road
can cause internal damage and
premature failure of the tyre. Such
impacts can also cause misalignment of the steering geometry and
subsequent rapid tyre wear.
Advice
We therefore recommend that
you have the tyres and suspension geometries checked after any
such incidents.
Prolonged driving on poor surfaces may be the cause of damage
which may only become evident at
a later date.
If replacing your tyres, it is essential to use the tyre sizes that are
recommended for your vehicle.
Contact a CITROËN dealer.
Wear indicators
Check the tread depth frequently.
Minimum legal depth: 1,6 mm.
Check the wear indicators and the
tread depth regularly as worn tyres
have reduced grip. The wear indicators show when a tyre is at its
safe wear limit.
Drive with extra caution on slippery roads
Make sure that all 4 tyres are always in good condition and that
the tyre pressures (including for the spare wheel) are always
set correctly.

Carrying loads in your vehicle
In order to preserve the roadholding qualities of your vehicle, take
the following precautions.
• Never exceed the gross vehicle
weight.
• Modify your driving style and
speed to take account of the
additional load.
• Always anchor down any heavy
objects carried in the boot.
Never transport heavy objects
inside the vehicle unless they
are suitably lashed down. If
necessary, use the rear seats
and secure the loads with the
seat belts (protect the seats
and seat belts if necessary).
• Limit the use of the rear shelf to
light, soft items such as coats or
clothing. Remember that heavy
or hard objects can become
dangerous during harsh braking and, if they touch the rear
screen, could damage the heating elements.
• You are advised to adjust the
aim of the headlamps to compensate for the vehicle load.
Roof bars and roof box
Any loading of the vehicle roof will alter the behaviour of your vehicle when
in motion.
You are recommended to use roof bars and roof boxes that are approved
by CITROËN.
Towing (boat, caravan, etc.)
• Before departure :
- Check the tyre pressures of both car and trailer.
- Check all the exterior and signalling lamps of the car and trailer.
- Practice manoeuvring, especially reversing.
- Grease the towing ball hitch regularly, and remove it when not towing
for a long period.
• Spread the load inside the caravan and keep within the towing weight
limits.
• Always drive at moderate speeds, changing down a gear in good time
before hill climbs or descents. Be aware of the effect of side winds.
• Braking distances are increased. Use the brakes gently and progressively. Avoid sudden braking.
• If you have to park on an incline, make sure that the parking brake is
firmly applied. Check that the tow hitch is firmly attached and, if necessary, chock the wheels of the trailer.
When towing, the fuel consumption will increase.
Towing a vehicle
If you are towing another vehicle, the latter should be out of gear (gearbox
in neutral). Move the gear lever to neutral (position N for SensoDrive and
automatic gearboxes).
Observe your vehicle's towing limits
It is essential to comply with the max. Gross Trailer Weights and speed
limits as specified by legislation in each country.
For further information about the towing capacity of your vehicle and its
max. authorised Gross Train Weight, contact a CITROËN dealer

C ATA LY T I C C O N V E R T E R
The petrol or diesel engine of your
vehicle is fitted with a catalytic
converter, a device which helps to
reduce the level of harmful emissions in the exhaust gases.
WARNING : The catalytic converter is a delicate component.
On petrol vehicles, it is essential
to use unleaded fuel.
XVII
Poor engine running can cause premature failure of the catalytic converter.
Precautions to be taken :
1. Keep to the recommended service intervals, as defined in the Maintenance Guide.
2. If difficult cold starting is experienced, contact a CITROËN dealer or
authorised repairer as soon as possible.
3. If engine misfiring is experienced, reduce speed and contact a CITROËN
dealer or authorised repairer as soon as possible.
4. Refill with fuel as soon as the minimum fuel warning lamp comes on. A
fuel level that is too low could cause poor running.
5. Never tow or push the vehicle to start it.
6. Do not run the engine with one or more spark plugs disconnected, not
even for test purposes.
7. Allow the engine to return to idle before switching off the ignition.
8. Do not park or drive over highly inflammable material (dry grass, fuels,
etc). as the catalytic converter will be very hot.
WARNING: EXHAUST GASES
Exhaust gases are very hot, keep people away from the exhaust tailpipe.
Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, a highly toxic gas which is colourless and odourless and therefore virtually undetectable. Breathing in carbon
monoxide can cause loss of consciousness and possible death.
For this reason, it is highly dangerous to run the engine in a confined space
or in a poorly ventilated area.
Using leaded petrol could destroy the catalytic converter and
cause serious damage to other components.

ELECTRICAL ACCESSORIES
Your vehicle's electrical system is designed to operate with either standard or optional equipment.
Before installing electrical equipment or accessories on your vehicle, consult a CITROËN dealer.
Some electrical accessories (radio, immobiliser, alarm, radio-telephone, etc). or the method by which they are
fitted can have negative effects on the functioning of your vehicle or be the cause of failures, on either the
electronic control systems, the audio system or the electrical charging circuit. Certain modifications and adaptations
of your vehicle's electrical system may therefore be necessary.
CITROËN declines all responsibility for the consequences and costs that are caused by faults or repairs on
your vehicle resulting from the installation of accessories that are not supplied and/or not recommended
by CITROËN and not installed in conformity with CITROËN requirements.

Running-in period
During the first 1 500 km (1 000 miles), following the simple advice given below will optimise the performance, driving
pleasure and long-term reliability of your new vehicle :
• Pull away and accelerate gently, drive at moderate road speeds and avoid high engine speeds (if your vehicle has
a rev counter, limit engine speeds to 2/3 of the maximum).
• Do not drive for long periods at high road speeds.
• Avoid harsh braking.
• Do not tow a trailer during the first 1 000 km (600 to 700 miles).
From 1 000 km (600 to 700 miles) for petrol engines or 1 500 km (1 000 miles) for diesel engines, the road speed
and engine revs may be gradually increased, slowly building up to the maximum permitted. It should be noted that an
engine will not deliver its maximum performance until a running-in period of at least 3 000 km (2,000 miles) for petrol
engines or 5 000 km (3,000 miles) for diesel engines has been completed.
When your vehicle has covered between 1 500 and 2 500 km (1 000 and 1 500 miles), a first inspection carried out
by the CITROËN network is compulsory in order for you to benefit from the terms of the guarantee.
The change of engine oil, formerly carried out at this service visit, is now no longer necessary.
Check the engine oil level frequently during the running-in period,
as oil consumption could be relatively high at this time.

Starting in very cold weather
Snow chains
In very cold weather, the engine and gearbox oils become
much less fluid. To improve starting, depress the clutch
pedal before operating the starter motor, releasing the
pedal slowly once the engine has started.
Snow chains can be fitted on tyres with dimensions as
indicated in « General information ».
The chains should be fitted only on the front wheels.
Use only fine-link chains that are designed for your particular vehicle. Contact a CITROËN dealer.
If driving on roads which are not snow-affected, you
should remove the chains so that they, your tyres and
also the road surfaces are not damaged.
Diesel fuel heater
Your vehicle is equipped with a fuel heating system
which reduces the risk of fuel supply problems in cold
weather.
Radiator – coolant fluid
Top up preferably using CITROËN coolant fluid, which
protects the cooling and heating systems against frost
and corrosion.
From delivery of your vehicle, the coolant fluid gives
protection down to –35°C.
Screen wash fluid
For best results as well as for your safety, use only CITROËN approved products which protect at temperatures as low as –25° to –30°C.
ADVICE
When driving with snow-chains, speed should be
adapted to road and traffic conditions.
Special care is required in emergency braking.
Anglais_indexe.indd Sec2:XX

MAINTENANCE
Washing the bodywork
In order to keep the bodywork and
paintwork in good condition, it is
necessary to wash the vehicle frequently, preferably using plenty of
water. However, do not wash the
car in direct sunshine or in very low
temperatures.
In all cases, wait until the surfaces
to be washed have cooled.
If you use a car-shampoo, rinse
thoroughly and wipe dry with a
chamois leather.
Polishing the paintwork
The paintwork of your vehicle
should be protected with a suitable car polish. Apply after washing
the vehicle when it is seen that the
water no longer forms beads on the
paint surface. CITROËN car polish
will protect against the elements,
including the effects of chemicals
in the atmosphere.
XXI
Bird droppings, insect deposits and tree resins can be extremely injurious to
the paint surface and their destructive action is accelerated considerably in
hot weather, so they should be removed as soon as possible.
If you wash your vehicle in an automatic car wash :
• The brush pressure should be as low as possible.
• The wash water should contain a detergent.
• A thorough rinsing should follow the detergent wash.
Modern car wash installations usually meet these criteria.
The repeated use of a poorly maintained car wash can cause micro-scratching of the paint surface causing the paint to appear matt, particularly in the
case of dark colours. A light polishing of the paint surface will restore the
finish.
If cleaning the vehicle with a high pressure jet, do not direct the jet onto the
various rubber protectors, e.g. driveshaft and steering gaiters, exterior trims,
roof seals, etc..
IMPORTANT
Never use high pressure jets or compressed air inside the engine compartment.
Tar spots on paintwork and
plastic finishers
Do not try to scrape off the tar but
use a CITROËN tar remover as
soon as possible.
Radio aerial
It is essential to unscrew the aerial lead when putting the vehicle
through an automatic carwash.
When setting off, apply the brakes briefly from time to time so
that the heat generated dries out the brakes.

Wheel embellishers and light alloy wheel
rims
Before and after washing, rinse thoroughly with clean
water. Wash with soapy water. To preserve the bright
finish, use a CITROËN car care product.
Minor damage to the paintwork
Touch in scratches and paint chips using a CITROËN
paint pencil or aerosol, carefully following the instructions provided. These paint pencils and aerosols are
available in all the CITROËN colours (see paint code
on the door pillar label).
Should you discover rust spots, consult a CITROËN
dealer or authorised repairer as soon as possible.
It is recommended to clean and reprotect the vehicle
underbody each time you have driven on salted roads.
Soft vinyl roof
If you wash the vehicle with a high pressure cleaner
(max. 90 bars), keep the jet more than 40 cm away from
the vehicle.
Fabric trims and seat belts
De-dust with a vacuum cleaner or brush. Remove any
stains using soapy water, or if necessary with CITROËN
textile cleaning products.
Do not use solvent products based on acetone or alcohol.
Note : For leather trim, soapy water is recommended
(do not use solvents or alcohol-based products).
Plastic mouldings, screens and displays
Remove dust with a non-abrasive cloth, then use an
appropriate CITROËN interior cleaning product.
ADVICE
For the most effective results, inside and outside your
vehicle, use CITROËN car care products.
When applying polish to the bodywork, take care to avoid the plastic components,as it will be difficult
to remove the deposits of polish afterwards.
If the vehicle is left exposed to the sun for a long period you are advised to cover the rear shelf and
the top of the rear seat backrests to protect them from harmful rays.
