If it has, switch the ignition off and on
again and reactivate it.
Operating principle
After the vehicle is started, the system
automatically locks the doors when
you are driving at approximately 6 mph
(10 km/h) and over.
The door can be unlocked:
– by pressing the door unlocking
button 1.
– by opening a front door (vehicle stationary).
Note: if a door is opened or closed, it
will automatically lock again when the
vehicle reaches a speed of 6 mph (10
km/h).
Driver’s responsibility
If you decide to keep the
doors locked when you are
driving, remember that it
may be more difficult for those assisting you to gain access to the
passenger compartment in the
event of an emergency.

SEAT BELTS (1/3)
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 securely locked in position so that
the rear seat belts will operate efficiently. Please refer to the information on the “Rear bench seat” in
Section 3.
Seat belts which are incorrectly adjusted or twisted
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.
– 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, e.g.:
avoid wearing heavy clothing or having
bulky objects under the belts, etc.

SEAT BELTS (3/3)
The following information applies to the vehicle’s front and rear seat belts.
– No modification may be made to the component parts of the originally fitted restraint system: belts, seats and their
mountings. For special operations (e.g. fitting child seats), contact an authorised 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.
– Make sure that the buckle is inserted into the appropriate catch.
– When refitting the rear bench seat, take care that the seat belts are correctly positioned so that they can be used properly.
– Ensure that no objects are placed in the area around the seat belt catch as they could prevent it from being properly secured.
– Make sure the seat belt catch is properly positioned (it should not be hidden away, crushed or flattened by people or objects).
1.25
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.
– 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.
– 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 anti-submarining air bag to pin
the occupant into his seat;
– the low volume front air bag;
– the lap seat belt pretensioners to
hold the occupant in his seat;
– the large volume front air bag.
Pretensioners
– 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 pretensioners hold the seat belt
against the body, holding the occupant
more securely against the seat, thus increasing the seat belt’s efficiency.
– The electric trigger system may
only be tested by a specially
trained technician using special
equipment.
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:
– When the vehicle is scrapped,
contact an approved dealer for
disposal of the pretensioner and
air bag gas generators.

– seat belt inertia reel pretensioner 1
which instantly retracts the seat belt;
– the lap pretensioner 2 on the front
seats.
1.26
METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS (2/4)
Load 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.
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.
Air bags for driver and front
passenger
Fitted to the driver and passenger side.
Depending on the vehicle, the presence of this equipment is indicated
by the word “Airbag” on the steering
wheel, dashboard (air bag zone A) and
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;
– a single indicator light
instrument panel;
– remote sensors.
å
on the
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.
1.27
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 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.
1.28
Special feature of the front air
bag
After a violent impact, it has two deployment volumes and integrates a ventilation system:
– small volume air bag, this is the first
stage of operation;
– large volume air bag, the air bag
seams rip so that a larger volume of
gas is released into the bag (for the
most severe impacts).
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 the air bag 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.
1.29
METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE REAR SEAT BELTS
Depending on the vehicle, they are
composed of:
– seat belt pretensioners built into
the inertia reels,
– force limiter.
These systems are designed to act independently or together when the vehicle is subjected to a frontal impact.
There are two possibilities, depending
on the force of the impact:
– protection is provided by the seat
belt only;
– the pretensioner is triggered to rectify seat belt slack.
Rear seat belt pretensioners
This system is only operational when
the ignition is switched on.
If the vehicle is subjected to a severe
frontal impact, a device retracts the
seat belt, pulling the seat belt tight
against the body and thus improving its
effectiveness.
1.30
– Have the entire restraint
system checked following
an accident.
– 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.
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.
SIDE PROTECTION DEVICES
Side air bags
These air bags are fitted to the front
seats and are activated at the sides of
the seats (door side) to protect the occupants in the event of a severe side
impact.
Curtain air bags
These are air bags fitted along the sides
of the vehicle in the ceiling which trigger
along the front and rear side windows
to protect the passengers in case of a
severe side impact.
Warnings concerning the side air bag
– Fitting seat covers: seats equipped with an air bag 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 air bags 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 air bag 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.
– The area between the rear bench seatback and the trim is the area of air bag
operation: no objects must be placed here.
1.31
ADDITIONAL METHODS OF RESTRAINT
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 the air bag inflates.
1
The air bag 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 air bag is deployed, although such minor injuries are always
possible with air bags.
If the vehicle should overturn or suffer a rear impact, however severe, the pretensioners and air bags are not always triggered. Shocks to the underbody 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 air
bag system (air bags, pretensioners, computer, wiring harness, etc.), except
by qualified personnel from an approved dealer.
– 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 air bag system.
– As a safety precaution, have the air bag 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 driver’s handbook with the vehicle.
– When scrapping your vehicle, contact your approved dealer for disposal of the
gas generator(s).
1.32
Operating faults
Warning light 1 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 come on when the ignition
is switched on, or if it comes on when
the engine is running, there is a fault
with the system (air bags, pretensioners, etc.) in the front and/or rear seats.
Contact your approved dealer as soon
as possible. Your protection will be reduced until this fault is rectified.
CHILD SAFETY: General information (1/2)
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).
Driver’s responsibility
when parking or stopping
the vehicle
Never leave an animal,
child or adult who is not self-sufficient alone on your vehicle, even for
a short time.
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 fourthfloor 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.
They may pose a risk to themselves
or to others by starting the engine,
activating equipment such as the
electric windows or by locking the
doors.
Also, in hot and/or sunny weather,
please remember that the temperature inside the passenger compartment increases very quickly.
RISK OF DEATH OR SERIOUS
INJURY.
1.33
CHILD SAFETY: General information (2/2)
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.
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.
1.34
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 for 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.
Forward-facing child seats
The child’s head and abdomen need to
be protected as a priority. A forward-facing 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 for
as long as their size permits.
Choose a bucket type seat for optimum
side protection.
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/her 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 fitted with a belt strap guide 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.
1.35
CHILD SAFETY: choosing a child seat mounting (1/2)
The are two ways of attaching child
seats: the seat belt or 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.
Check that the seatback
of the forward-facing child
seat is in contact with the
seatback of the vehicle
seat. In this case, the child seat may
not always rest on the seat base of
the vehicle seat.
1.36
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
originally fitted: seat belts,
ISOFIX seats and their mountings.
Attachment with the ISOFIX system
Authorised ISOFIX child seats are approved in accordance with regulation
ECE-R44 in one of the three following
scenarios:
– universal ISOFIX 3-point forwardfacing seat;
– semi-universal ISOFIX 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 and 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 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.
Fix the hook of the strap onto ring 3 and
pull the strap so that the seatback of the
child seat comes into contact with the
seatback of the vehicle seat.
Special note for two-door version
To access the ring 4 from the rear seat,
unlock the vehicle’s rear bench seat
back (please refer to the information
on the “Rear bench seat functions” in
section 1), pass the strap through then
raise the seat back up again: check that
it is correctly locked in place.
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 fittings.
Check that nothing is obstructing the anchorage points.
If your vehicle has been involved in a road accident, have the ISOFIX fittings
checked and replace your child seat.

CHILD SAFETY: fitting a child seat (1/5)
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 seats indicated may
not be available. Before using a different child seat, check with the manufacturer that it can be fitted.
Fit the child seat in a rear
seat wherever possible.
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.
1.38
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.
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 in front
as far as it will go, although without allowing it to come into contact with the
child seat.
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.
RISK OF DEATH OR
SERIOUS INJURY: before
installing a rear-facing child
seat in this seat, check that
the airbag has been deactivated
(please refer to “Child safety: front
passenger airbag deactivation/activation” in Section 1).
Ensure that the child seat
or the child’s feet do not
prevent the front seat from
locking correctly. Refer to

The vehicle requires an oil change as soon as possible.
Depending on the vehicle, the mileage before an oil change varies according to the driving style (frequent driving at low speed,
door-to-door journeys, extensive use at idling speed, towing a trailer, etc.). The distance remaining until the next oil change can
therefore decrease more quickly in some cases than the actual distance travelled.
Resetting: to reset the mileage before the next service, press and hold button 2 or 3 for approximately 10 seconds until the

SPECIAL FEATURES OF PETROL VERSIONS
The following operating conditions
should be avoided:
– 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.
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 Document.
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;
may cause the catalytic converter to
overheat, reducing its efficiency which
may irreparably damage it and cause
heat damage to the vehicle.
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
cause of the fault.
If the fault cannot be identified, do not
continue to try and 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

and ©, consult an authorised dealer immediately.
Precautions to be taken in
winter
To avoid any faults in icy weather:
– 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.
When driving, depending on the fuel
grade 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.
Running out of fuel
If the tank has been completely drained, the system must be reprimed after
the tank is refilled: see information on
the “fuel tank” in section 1 before restarting the engine.

DRIVING ADVICE, ECO-DRIVING (2/3)
An overall rating from 0 to 100 is displayed to let you assess your eco driving performance. The higher the score,
the better your eco-driving performance.
Eco advice is given to help improve
your performance.
With your favourite journeys saved, you
can evaluate your performance.
For more information, please see the
multimedia system instructions.
On versions with an automatic gearbox, it is preferable to keep the gear
lever in position D.
– Avoid sudden acceleration.
– Brake as little as possible. If you anticipate an obstacle or bend in advance, you may then simply release
the accelerator pedal.
– 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.
Driving advice, Eco-driving
Obstructions to the driver
On the driver’s side, only
use mats suitable for the
vehicle, attached with the
pre-fitted components, and check
the fitting regularly. Do not lay one
mat on top of another.
There is a risk of wedging the
pedals
2.16
Behaviour
– 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.
– Do not overrev the engine in the intermediate gears.
You should always use the highest
gear possible.
– 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.
DRIVING ADVICE, ECO-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:
–
Tyres
Advice on use
– An underinflated tyre increases fuel
consumption.
– 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”).
– The use of non-recommended tyres
can increase fuel consumption.
– Use the air vents. Driving with the
windows open at 60 mph (100 km/h)
will increase fuel consumption by
4%.
–
–
–
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.
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.
– Never fill the fuel tank right to the
brim to avoid overflow.
2.17
MAINTENANCE AND ANTIPOLLUTION ADVICE
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 of the parts on your vehicle have
been designed to be recycled later.
These parts are easily removable in
order to be collected and reprocessed
in recycling networks.
Furthermore, by virtue of its design,
moderate fuel consumption and initial
settings, your vehicle also conforms
to current anti-pollution regulations.
The manufacturer is actively striving
to reduce pollutant exhaust gas emissions and to save energy. However,
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.
Maintenance
It is important to remember that failure to respect anti-pollution 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 anti-pollution
regulations.
Have your vehicle adjusted and
checked by an authorised 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
– Air filter, fuel filter: a choked element will reduce efficiency. It must
be replaced.
– Idle speed: no adjustment is needed.
2.18
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.
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.
Ä
– 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
an authorised dealer as soon as possible.
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 of
the manufacturer eco² signature.
Emissions
Manufacture
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 has been manufactured at
a factory which complies with a policy
to reduce the environmental impact
on the surrounding areas (reduction of
water and energy consumption, visual
and noise pollution, atmospheric emissions and waste water; sorting and reusing waste).
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).
For certain diesel vehicles, this system
also has a particle filter to reduce the
volume of soot particles emitted.
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.
Recycling
Your vehicle is 85% recyclable and
95% recoverable.
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).
2.19
TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (1/4)
If the vehicle is equipped with the function, this system monitors the tyre pressure.
1
Operating principle
Each wheel (except for the emergency
spare wheel) has a sensor in the inflation valve which periodically measures
the tyre pressure. The system informs
the driver via the on-board computer 1
that the tyres are sufficiently inflated
and warns if they are underinflated or
2
3
leaking. The warning light
on the
display 1 comes on to notify the driver if
the pressure is too low.
Resetting the standard level
for the tyre pressures
This should be done:
This function is an additional driving aid.
However, the function does
not take the place of the
driver. It cannot, therefore, under
any circumstances replace the vigilance or the responsibility of the
driver.
Check the tyre pressures, including
the emergency spare wheel, once a
month.
2.20
– when the standard tyre pressure
needs to be changed to adapt to
usage conditions (empty, carrying a
load, motorway driving, etc.);
– after swapping wheels over;
– after changing a wheel.
It should always be done after checking
the tyre pressure of all four tyres when
cold.
Tyre pressures must correspond to the
current usage of the vehicle (empty,
carrying a load, motorway driving, etc.).
With the ignition on:
– make short presses on one of the
buttons 2 or 3 to select the display of
the tyre pressures on the display 1.
– press and hold (around 3 seconds)
button 2 or 3 to start initialisation. A
flashing tyre followed by the message “Pressure ref Ongoing” indicates that the request to learn the
reference pressure has been taken
into account;
– reset can take several minutes of
driving.

DRIVER CORRECTION DEVICES AND AIDS (1/5)
Depending on the vehicle, they may
comprise:
– the ABS (anti-lock braking
system);
– ESC (electronic stability program)
with understeer control and traction control;
– emergency brake assist with, depending on the vehicle, braking
anticipation;
– rear wheel steering.
These functions are an additional aid in the event of
critical driving conditions,
enabling the vehicle behaviour to be adapted to suit the driving conditions.
However, the functions do not take
the place of the driver. They do
not increase the vehicle’s limits
and should not encourage you
to drive more quickly. Therefore,
they 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).
2.24
ABS (anti-lock braking
system)
Under heavy braking, the ABS prevents
the wheels from locking, allowing the
stopping distance to be managed and
keeping control of the vehicle.
Under these circumstances, the vehicle can be steered to avoid an obstacle
whilst braking. In addition, this system
can increase stopping distances, particularly on roads with low surface grip
(wet ground etc.).
You will feel a pulsation through the
brake pedal each time the system is
activated. The ABS does not in any way
improve the vehicle's physical performance relating to the road surface and
roadholding. It is still essential to follow
the rules of good driving practice (such
as driving at a safe distance from the
vehicle in front etc.).
In an emergency, apply firm and
continuous pressure to the brake
pedal. There is no need to pump
it repeatedly. The ABS will modulate the force applied in the braking
system.

DRIVER CORRECTION DEVICES AND AIDS (2/5)
Hill start assistance
This function assists the driver when
starting on hills. It prevents the vehicle
from rolling backwards, depending on
the slope, by automatically applying the
brakes when the driver lifts his/her foot
off the brake pedal to depress the accelerator pedal.
System operation
It only operates when the gear lever is
in a position other than neutral (other
than N or P for automatic transmissions) and the vehicle is completely
stationary (brake pedal depressed)
The system holds the vehicle for approximately 2 seconds. The brakes are
then gradually released (the vehicle will
move according to the slope).
The hill start assistance
system cannot completely
prevent the vehicle from rolling backwards in all situations (extremely steep gradients,
etc.).
In all cases, the driver may depress
the brake pedal to prevent the vehicle from rolling backwards.
The hill start assistance function
should not be used for prolonged
stops: use the brake pedal.
This function is not designed to immobilise the vehicle permanently.
If necessary, use the brake pedal to
stop the vehicle.
The driver must remain particularly
vigilant when driving on slippery or
low-grip surfaces and/or on hills.
Risk of serious injury.

DRIVER CORRECTION DEVICES AND AIDS (3/5)
Electronic stability control
ESC with understeer control
and traction control
Electronic stability control ESC
This system helps you to keep control
of the vehicle in critical driving conditions (avoiding an obstacle, loss of grip
on a bend, etc.).
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 driver input to
the actual trajectory of the vehicle and
corrects the trajectory if necessary by
controlling the braking of certain wheels
and/or engine power. In the event that
the system is engaged, indicator light
2.26
flashes on the instrument panel.
Understeer control
Operating faults
This system optimises the action of the
ESC in the case of pronounced understeer (loss of front axle road holding).
When the system detects an operating
fault the message “Check ESC” and
warning light © appear on the instrument panel.
Traction control
In this case, the ESC and traction
control system are deactivated. Consult
an authorised dealer.
This system helps to limit wheelspin of
the drive wheels and to control the vehicle when pulling away accelerating or
decelerating.
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.
The system also adjusts the engine
speed to the grip available under the
wheels, independently of the pressure
exerted on the accelerator pedal.
DRIVER CORRECTION DEVICES AND AIDS (4/5)
The traction control system offers additional safety. It is recommended that
you do not drive with the function disabled. Correct this as soon as possible
by pressing the switch 1 again.
Note: The function is reactivated automatically when the ignition is switched
on or when a speed of approximately
24 mph (40 km/h) is exceeded.

Emergency brake assist
This system supplements the ABS
and helps reduce vehicle stopping distances.
Disabling the traction control
system
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 message “Traction control off” is
displayed on the instrument panel to
inform you.
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 switching on
Depending on the vehicle, these may
light up in the event of sudden deceleration.
Operating faults
When the system detects an operating fault the message “Check braking
system” appears on the instrument
panel along with the © warning
light.
Consult an approved dealer.
Braking anticipation
Depending on the vehicle, when you
rapidly release the accelerator, the
system anticipates the braking manoeuvre in order to reduce stopping
distances.
Special cases
When using the cruise control:
– if you use the accelerator, when you
release it, the system may be triggered;
– if you do not use the accelerator, the
system will not be triggered.

Rear wheel steering
On equipped vehicles, this system,
when the vehicle is being driven, steers
the rear wheels according to driving
conditions: at low speed this system
offers manoeuvrability, at higher speeds
it optimises stability.
When driving at low speeds, the rear
wheels steer in the opposite direction to
the front wheels (figure A) to increase
the vehicle’s manoeuvrability. This is
used when driving in towns, on winding
roads, during parking manoeuvres, etc.
2.28
When driving at speeds above 40 mph
(60 km/h), the rear wheels steer in the
same direction as the front wheels
(figure B) to optimise the vehicle’s stability. This is useful when changing
lanes or when cornering etc.

on the instrument panel information display to inform you of this situation.
Exceeding the limit speed
It is possible to exceed the limit speed
at any moment. To do this: press the
accelerator pedal firmly and fully
(beyond the kickdown point).
Whilst the speed is being exceeded,
the cruising speed displayed on the instrument panel flashes.
Driving
When a limited speed has been stored
and this speed is not reached, driving is
similar to driving a vehicle without the
speed limiter function.
Then, release the accelerator pedal:
the speed limiter function will return as
soon as you reach a speed lower than
the stored speed.
Once you have reached the stored
speed, no effort on the accelerator pedal
will allow you to exceed the programmed speed except in an emergency
(refer to information on “Exceeding the
limit speed”).
The speed limiter function is
in no way linked to the braking system.

This cruising speed may be set at any
speed above 20 mph (30 km/h).
This function is an additional driving aid. However,
the function does not take
the place of the driver.
Therefore, it can under no circumstances replace the driver’s responsibility to respect speed limits and to
be vigilant (the driver must always
be ready to brake). Cruise control
must not be used in heavy traffic, on
undulating or slippery roads (black
ice, aquaplaning, gravel) and during
bad weather (fog, rain, side winds

PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL (1/4)
Operating principle
Ultrasonic detectors, installed in the
front or rear bumper depending on the
vehicle, measure the distance between
the vehicle and an obstacle whilst reversing.

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.
Rear parking distance control

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 a lower engine
speed.
Accelerating and overtaking
Depress the accelerator pedal firmly

kickdown point).
This will enable you to change down
to the optimum gear within the
engine range.
AUTOMATIC GEARBOX (2/3)
Driving in manual mode
Special circumstances
Parking the vehicle
With the selector lever in position D,
move the lever to the left. Shifting the
lever repeatedly allows you to change
gears manually:
– If the road contours and bends
do not allow you to stay in automatic mode (e.g.: in the mountains),
we recommend that you change to
manual mode.
This will prevent the automatic gearbox from changing gears repeatedly
when climbing, and permit engine
braking on long descents.
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.
– To move down through the gears,
push the lever backwards;
– To move up through the gears, push
the lever forwards.
The gear selected is displayed on the
instrument panel.
Special cases
Under certain driving conditions (e.g.
engine protection, electronic stability
program (ESP) operational etc.: ESC),
the “automatic system” may change
gear automatically.
Likewise, to prevent incorrect manoeuvres, a gear change may be refused by
the automatic system: in this case the
gear display flashes for a few seconds
as a warning.
Apply the handbrake or, depending
on the vehicle, ensure that the electronic parking brake is applied.
– In cold weather, to prevent the
engine from stalling, wait a few moments before shifting the selector
lever from position P or N and engaging D or R.
– 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 before starting
the engine to avoid wheelspin when
starting.
In very cold weather, the system
may prevent the gears from being
shifted in manual mode until the
gearbox reaches the right temperature.
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).

Temperature adjustment
The automatic climate control system
guarantees comfort in the passenger compartment and good visibility
(except in the event of extreme conditions), whilst optimising consumption.
The system controls the ventilation
speed, air distribution, air recirculation, and starting and stopping the air
conditioning and air temperature. This
mode consists of a choice of three programmes:
Press either button 1 or 5 to increase
or decrease the temperature. Pressing
button 3 for more than 2 seconds sets
the passenger temperature to the driver’s temperature.
AUTO: allows the selected comfort
level to be best attained, depending on
the exterior conditions. Press button 3.
SOFT: gently brings the temperature to
the desired comfort level. The comfort
level is then maintained gently and silently. Press button 2.
Special note: the highest and lowest
settings allow the system to produce
maximum hot or cold temperature levels
(“LO” and “HI” display on screen 12).
Stopping the system
Press the bottom of button 11 several times to stop the system. To start
it, press the top of switch 11 or one of
switches 2, 3 or 4.

Varying the ventilation speed
In automatic mode, the system uses
the most suitable amount of air to reach
and maintain the desired comfort level.
You can always adjust the ventilation
speed by pressing on the top or bottom
of button 11 to increase or decrease the
ventilation speed.
In this situation, the ventilation speed,
which is no longer automatically controlled, appears on the display.
Where possible, it is recommended that automatic mode is
used by selecting one of the automatic programmes: AUTO, SOFT
or FAST.
In automatic mode (indicator light
for button 3 on), all heating and air
conditioning functions are controlled
by the system.
You can also change the system selection, in this case, indicator light
for button 3 will go out and the changed function, which is no longer
controlled by the system, is shown
on display 12.
To return to automatic mode, press
one of programmes: AUTO, SOFT
or FAST.
The displayed temperature values
show a comfort level.
When starting the engine, increasing or decreasing the value
displayed will not allow the comfort level to be reached any more
quickly. The system will always optimise the temperature increase or
decrease (the 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.

Rear screen de-icing/
demisting
Press button 7: the integrated indicator light comes on. This function permits rapid demisting/de-icing of the rear
screen and de-icing of the door mirrors
(on equipped vehicles).
To exit this function, press button 7
again. Demisting automatically stops
by default.
Clear View function
Press button 8, the integrated indicator comes on and the indicator light for
button 3 goes out.
This function quickly demists and deices the windscreen, the rear screen,
the front side windows, and the door
mirrors (depending on the vehicle). The
air conditioning and rear screen deicing functions must be activated.
Press button 7 to stop the heated rear
screen operating, and the integrated indicator goes out.
You can change the ventilation speed
by pressing button 11.
To exit this function, press:
– button 8 again;
– one of either button 2, 3 or 4.
AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL (4/4)
Note:
– 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.).
Manual use
9
Air recirculation
This function is controlled automatically, but it can also be activated manually.
Pressing button 9 allows air recirculation to be activated, in this case, the
integrated indicator comes on;
Prolonged use of this position may lead
to odours, caused by non-renewal of
air, and the formation of condensation
on the windows.
We therefore advise you to return to automatic mode as soon as the air recirculation function is no longer required,
by pressing button 9 again.
In automatic mode (AUTO lit on the
display), all heating and air conditioning functions are controlled by the
system.
When you modify certain functions,
AUTO goes out. Only the modified
function stops being controlled by
the system.
The demisting/de-icing will still take
priority over the air recirculation.
In some situations (high humidity,
etc.) air recirculation is not activated automatically, to ensure visibility remains the priority (ventilation
is maintained using air from the outside).
3.7
AIR CONDITIONING: information and advice on use
Advice on use
In some situations, (air conditioning
off, air recirculation activated, ventilation speed at zero or low, etc.) you
may notice that condensation starts
to form on the windows and windscreen.
If there is condensation, use the
“Clear View” function to remove it,
then use the air conditioning in automatic mode to stop it forming again.
If the condensation does not clear,
use the FAST programme.
Note
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.
Fuel consumption
Operating faults
You will normally notice an increase
in fuel consumption (especially
when driving in town) when the air
conditioning is operating.
As a general rule, contact your approved Dealer in the event of an operating fault:
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.
– 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 Document
for your vehicle for the inspection
frequency.
3.8
– reduction in de-icing, demisting or air conditioning performance. This may be caused
by the passenger compartment
filter cartridge becoming clogged;
Do not open the refrigerant fluid circuit. The fluid
may damage eyes or skin.
ELECTRIC WINDOWS, ELECTRIC SUNROOF (1/3)
These systems operate with the ignition on or off, until the driver’s door is
opened (limited to about 5 minutes).
Safety of rear occupants
The driver can disable operation of the electric windows and, depending on
the vehicle, the rear doors, by
pressing switch 4. The indicator
light integrated in the switch lights
up to confirm that the locks have
been activated.
Driver’s responsibility
Never leave your vehicle with the
RENAULT card inside and never
leave a child (or a pet) unsupervised, even for a short while. They
may pose a risk to themselves or to
others by starting the engine, activating equipment such as the electric windows or by locking the doors.
If any part of the body becomes
trapped, reverse the direction of the
window immediately by pressing the
relevant switch.
Risk of serious injury.

the window moving.
Note: if the window detects resistance
when closing (e.g. fingers, branch of
a tree, etc.) it stops and then lowers
again by a few centimetres.
Avoid resting any objects against a
half-open window: there is a risk that
the electric window winder could be
damaged.

moves back several centimetres.
Driver’s responsibility
Never leave your vehicle
with the RENAULT card
inside and never leave a
child (or a pet) unsupervised, even
for a short while. The reason for
this is that the child may endanger
himself or others by starting the

ENGINE OIL LEVEL: general information (1/2)
It is normal for an engine to use oil for
lubrication and cooling of moving parts
and it is normal to top up the level
between oil changes.
However, contact your approved Dealer
if more than 0.5 litres is being consumed every 600 miles (1,000 km) after
the running in period.

BODYWORK MAINTENANCE (1/2)
A well-maintained vehicle will last
longer. It is therefore recommended to
maintain the exterior of the vehicle regularly.
Your vehicle has been treated with very
effective anti-corrosion products. It is
nevertheless subject to various outside
influences.
Corrosive agents in the atmosphere
– atmospheric pollution (built-up and
industrial areas),
– saline atmospheres (near the sea,
particularly in hot weather),
– seasonal and damp weather conditions (e.g. road salt in winter, water
from road cleaners, etc.).
What you should not do
Do not degrease or clean mechanical components (e.g. the engine compartment), underneath the body, parts
with hinges (e.g. inside the doors) and
painted plastic external fittings (e.g.
bumpers) using high-pressure cleaning equipment or by spraying on products not approved by our Technical
Department. Doing this could give rise
to corrosion or operational faults.
Wash the vehicle in bright sunlight or
freezing temperatures.
Do not scrape off mud or dirt without
pre-wetting.
Allow dirt to accumulate on the exterior.
Minor impacts
Allow rust to form following minor impacts.
Abrasive action
Dust and sand in the air, mud, road grit
thrown up by other vehicles, etc.
Do not use solvents not approved by
our Technical Department to remove
stains as this could damage the paintwork.
You should take a number of minor precautions in order to safeguard your vehicle against such risks.
Do not drive in snow or muddy conditions without washing the vehicle, particularly under the wheel arches and
body.
You should
Wash your car frequently, with the
engine off, with cleaning products recommended by the manufacturer (never
use abrasive products). Rinse thoroughly beforehand with a jet:
– spots of tree resin and industrial
grime;
– mud in the wheel arches and underneath the body which forms damp
patches;
– 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;
– salt, particularly in the wheel arches
and underneath the body after driving in areas where the roads have
been gritted.
Remove any plant matter (resin, leaves,
etc.) from the vehicle regularly.
4.15
BODYWORK MAINTENANCE (2/2)
Respect local regulations about washing vehicles (e.g. do not wash your vehicle on a public highway).
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 in order to maintain your
anti-corrosion warranty. Refer to the
Maintenance Document.
If it is necessary to clean mechanical components, hinges, etc., spray
them with products approved by our
Technical Department to protect them
after they have been cleaned.
Vehicles with a matte paint
finish
This type of paint requires certain precautions.
Do not do the following
– use wax-based products (polishing);
– rub hard;
– wash the vehicle in a roller-type car
wash;
– wash the vehicle using a high-pressure device;
– attach stickers to the paintwork (risk
of leaving marks).
You should do the following
Wash the vehicle by hand using plenty
of water, using a soft cloth or a gentle
sponge.
Using a roller type car wash
Return the windscreen wiper stalk to
the Park position (refer to the information on the “Windscreen washer, wiper”
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.
Cleaning the headlights
As the headlights are made of plastic
“glass”, use a soft cloth or cotton wool
to clean them. If this does not clean
them properly, moisten the cloth with
soapy water, then wipe clean with a soft
damp cloth or cotton wool.
Finally, carefully dry off with a soft dry
cloth.
Cleaning products containing alcohol must not be used.
We have selected special products
to care for your vehicle and you can
obtain these from the manufacturer’s accessory outlets.

INTERIOR TRIM MAINTENANCE (1/2)
A well-maintained vehicle will last
longer. It is therefore recommended to
maintain the interior of the vehicle regularly.
A stain should always be dealt with
swiftly.
Whatever type of stain is on the trim,
use cold (or warm) soapy water with
natural soap.
Detergents (washing-up liquid, powdered products, alcohol-based products) should not be used.
Use a soft cloth.
Glass instrument panel
(e.g. instrument panel, clock, exterior
temperature display, radio display, etc.)
Use a soft cloth (or cotton wool).
If this does not clean it properly, use a
soft cloth (or cotton wool) slightly moistened with soapy water and then wipe
clean with a soft damp cloth or cotton
wool.
Finally, carefully dry off with a soft dry
cloth.
Textiles (seats, door trim, etc)
Vacuum-clean the textiles regularly.
Liquid stain
Use soapy water.
Dab lightly (never rub) with a soft cloth,
rinse and remove the excess.
Solid or pasty stain
Cleaning products containing alcohol must not be used under any circumstances.
Carefully remove the excess solid or
pasty material immediately with a
spatula (working from the edges to the
centre to avoid spreading the stain).
Clean as for a liquid stain.
Seat belts
Special instructions for sweets or
chewing gum
Rinse and soak up the excess.
These must be kept clean.
Use products selected by our Technical
Department (Approved outlets) or
warm, soapy water and a sponge and
wipe with a dry cloth.
Detergents or dyes must not be used
under any circumstances.
Put an ice cube on the stain to solidify
it, then proceed as for a solid stain.
For further recommendations for
maintaining the interior, and/or for
any unsatisfactory results, please
see an authorised dealer.
4.17
INTERIOR TRIM MAINTENANCE (2/2)
Removal/replacing removable
equipment originally fitted in
the vehicle
If you need to remove equipment in
order to clean the passenger compartment (for example, mats), always
ensure that they are correctly refitted
and are the right way around (the driver’s mat should be fitted on the driver’s
side, etc.) and fit them with the components supplied with the equipment (for
example, the driver mat should always
be fixed using the pre-fitted mounting
components).
You should not:
You are strongly advised not to position objects such as deodorants,
scents, etc. near air vents, as this could
damage your dashboard trim.
With the vehicle stationary, ensure that
nothing will impede driving (anything
obstructing the pedals, heel wedged by
the mat, etc.).
You are strongly recommended not to use highpressure or spray cleaning
equipment inside the passenger compartment: use of such
equipment could impair the correct
functioning of the electrical or electronic components in the vehicle, or
have other detrimental effects.

PUNCTURE/EMERGENCY SPARE WHEEL
In the event of a puncture,
depending on the vehicle,
you will have:
1
An emergency spare wheel or tyre inflation kit (refer to the information on the
following pages).
1
2
Emergency spare wheel
Special note:
The Tyre Pressure Monitor function
does not check the emergency spare
wheel (the wheel replaced by the emergency spare wheel disappears from the
instrument panel display).
Refer to the information on the “Tyre
pressure monitor” in Section 2.
To access it:
– open the luggage compartment and
lift the luggage compartment carpets 1 and 2;
– remove the jack from its support;
– unscrew the central mounting from
the support to remove it;
– remove the emergency spare wheel.
If the emergency spare wheel has been stored for several years, have it checked by your Dealer to ensure that it is
safe to use.
Vehicles fitted with an emergency spare wheel smaller than the four other wheels:
– Never fit more than one emergency spare wheel to the same vehicle.
– Replace the emergency spare wheel as soon as possible with a wheel with the same dimensions as the original.
– When this is fitted to the vehicle, which must only be a temporary measure, the driving speed must not exceed the speed
indicated on the label on the wheel.
– Fitting an emergency spare wheel may alter the way the vehicle usually runs. Avoid sudden acceleration or deceleration and
reduce your speed when cornering.
– If you need to use snow chains, fit the emergency spare wheel to the rear axle and check the tyre pressure.
5.2
TYRE INFLATION KIT (1/5)
B
A
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
larger than 4 mm, or cuts in tyre
sidewall B.
Ensure also that the wheel rim is in
good condition.
Do not pull out the foreign body
causing the puncture if it is still in
the tyre.
A tyre which has been punctured
should always be inspected (and repaired, where possible) as soon as
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.

sudden braking manoeuvres and
obstruct their use.
– Affix the driving recommendation
label, located under bottle 1, to the
dashboard where it can easily be
seen by the driver;
– store the kit;
– after the first inflation procedure the
tyre will still be leaking; it is vital to
drive in order to plug the hole;
– Start immediately and drive at between 12 and 36 mph (20 and
60 km/h) to distribute the product
evenly throughout the tyre, stopping
after a distance of 2 miles (3 kilometres) to check the pressure;
– if the pressure is above 1.3 bar but
lower than the recommended pressure, readjust it (refer to the label
affixed to the edge of the driver’s
door), otherwise contact an approved dealer: repair is not possible.
Note: after using the inflation kit, you
should visit an approved Dealer to replace the inflation hose and the bottle
of repair product.
Precautions when using the kit
The kit should not be operated for more
than 15 consecutive minutes.
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
those fitted originally and tighten
them fully.
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,

5.11
TYRES
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.
2
You must make sure that your tyres
conform to local road traffic regulations.
1
When the tyre tread has been eroded
to the level of the warning strips, they
become visible 2: it is then necessary
to replace your tyres because the tread
profile is no more than 1.6 mm deep
and this causes 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.
5.12
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
that 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.
TYRES (continued)
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, the normal
pressures must be increased by 0.2 to
0.3 bar (or 3 PSI).
Never deflate a hot tyre.
Incorrect tyre pressures
lead to abnormal tyre wear
and unusually hot running.
These are factors which
may seriously affect safety and lead
to:
Special note
Depending on the vehicle, there may
be an adapter which needs to be positioned on the valve before air is added.
Fitting new tyres
For safety reasons, this operation must be carried out
by a specialist.
Fitting different tyres may
change your vehicle as follows:
– 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.
– poor road holding,
– risk of bursting or tread separation.
The pressure depends on the load
and the speed of use. Adjust the
pressures according to the conditions of use (refer to the information
on “Tyre pressures”).
Emergency spare wheel
Please be aware that a
poorly tightened or missing valve cap can make the
tyres less airtight and lead
to pressure loss.
Refer to the information on the
“Emergency spare wheel” and instructions on “Changing a wheel” in
Section 5.
Always use valve caps identical to
those fitted originally and tighten
them fully.
5.13
TYRES (continued)
Changing wheels around
Use in winter
This practice is not recommended.
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.
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.
Snow or Winter tyres
We would recommend that these be
fitted to all four wheels to ensure that
your vehicle retains maximum adhesion.
Vehicles fitted with the
tyre pressure monitor
Each of the sensors incorporated in the valves is dedicated to a single wheel: under no
circumstances should you swap the
wheels, without having the system
reset.
There is a risk of incorrect information which could have serious consequences.
5.14
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.
Studded tyres
This type of equipment may only be
used for a limited period and as laid
down by local legislation. It is necessary to observe the speed specified by
current legislation.
These tyres must, at a minimum, be
fitted to the two front wheels.
Chains may only be fitted
to tyres of the same size
as those originally fitted to
your vehicle.
If your vehicle is originally fitted
with tyres with a diameter of 17”,
snow chains may be used (but only
specific chains). Consult an approved dealer.

prohibited
* Towing weight (towing a caravan, boat, etc.)
Towing is prohibited when the MTR - MMAC calculation is equal to zero, or when the MTR is equal to zero (or is not listed) on the
identification plate.
– 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 your approved dealer about any towing equipment.
– When towing, under no circumstances may the total train weight (vehicle + trailer) be exceeded. However the following is
permitted:
– rear axle MMTA exceeded by no more than 15%,
– maximum MMAC exceeded by no more than 10% or 100 kg (whichever is reached first).
In either case, the maximum speed of the vehicle and trailer must not exceed 60 mph (100 kph) and the tyre pressures must
be increased by 0.2 bar (3 PSI).
– 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.
Weight transfer
The towing load must not exceed 1,500 kg.
If the Maximum Authorised Mass of the vehicle has not been reached, up to 200 kg can be transferred to the braked trailer, within
the limits of the Gross Train Weight.

REPLACEMENT PARTS AND REPAIRS
Original parts are based on strict specifications and are subject to highly-specialised tests. Therefore, they are of at least the same
level of quality as the parts fitted originally.
If you always fit genuine replacement parts to your vehicle, you will ensure that it performs well. Furthermore, repairs carried out
within the manufacturer’s Network using original parts are guaranteed according to the conditions set out on the reverse of the
repair order.
