Seat belts (1/4)
Always wear your seat belt when travelling in your vehicle. You must also
comply with the legislation of the particular country you are in.
Before starting, first adjust your driving position, then ask all occupants
to adjust their seat belt to ensure optimum protection.
Adjusting your driving
position
Make sure that the rear bench seat
is locked in position correctly so that
the rear seat belts will operate efficiently. Refer to the information on
the “Rear bench seat: functions” in
Section 3.
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.

SEAT BELTS (4/4)
The following information applies to the vehicle’s front and rear seat belts.
–No modification may be made to the component parts of the restraint system (belts and seats and their mountings)
fitted originally. For special operations (e.g. fitting child seats) contact an approved Dealer.
–Do not use devices which allow any slack in the belts (e.g. clothes pegs, clips, etc.): a seat belt which is worn too
loosely may cause injury in the event of an accident.
– Never wear the shoulder strap under your arm or behind your back.
– Never use the same belt for more than one person and never hold a baby or child on your lap with your seat belt around
them.
– The belt should never be twisted.
– Following an accident, have the seat belts checked and replaced if necessary. Always replace your seat belts as soon as
they show any signs of wear.
– 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.
1.26
Methods of restraint in addition to the front seat belts (1/3)
Depending on the vehicle, they are
composed of:
– seat belt pretensioners;
1
2
– air bags 1 for driver and front passenger.
–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.
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 2 locking;
– the seat belt pretensioner (which engages to correct seat belt slack);
– the front air bag.
–Have the entire restraint
system checked following
an accident.
Pretensioners
The pretensioners hold the seat belt
against the body, holding the occupant
more securely against the seat, thus increasing the seat belt’s efficiency.
With the ignition on, following a significant frontal impact and depending on
the severity of the impact, the system
may trigger the seat belt pretensioner
which instantly retracts the seat belt.
– 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.
1.27
Methods of restraint in addition to the front seat belts (2/3)
Air bags for driver and front
passenger
It is fitted to the front seats on the driver’s side and, depending on the vehicle,
on the passenger’s side as well.
Depending on the vehicle, the presence of this equipment is indicated by
the word “air bag” on the steering wheel
and dashboard (air bag zone A) and
a symbol on the lower section of the
windscreen.
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.
1.28
å
on the
Operation
This system is only operational when
the ignition is switched on.
In a severe frontal impact, the air bags
inflate rapidly, cushioning the impact
of the driver’s head and chest against
the steering wheel and of the front passenger against the dashboard. The air
bags then deflate immediately so that
the passengers are not in any way hindered from leaving the vehicle.
A
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.
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.
Methods of restraint in addition to the front seat belts (3/3)
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 cradle, etc.) to the steering wheel boss.
– The steering wheel must not be removed (except by qualified personnel from our Network).
– Do not sit too close to the steering wheel when driving: sit with your arms slightly bent (see Section 1 “Adjusting your driving
position”). 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 cradle, etc.) to the dashboard in the air bag zone.
– Do not place anything between the dashboard and the passenger (animal, 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. As a
general rule, keep all body parts (knees, hands, head, etc.) away from the dashboard.
– 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).
1.29
Side PROTECTION devices
Side air bags
(depending on vehicle)
This air bag may be fitted to each of the
front seats and is activated at the sides
of the seats (door side) to protect the
occupants in the event of a severe side
impact.
Curtain air bags
(depending on vehicle)
These air bags may be fitted along the
top of each side of the vehicle and are
triggered along the front and rear side
windows to protect the passengers in
the event 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.
A marking on the windscreen informs you of the presence of additional means of restraint (air bags,
pretensioners, etc.) in the passenger compartment.
1.30
– These air bags operate through slits in the front seatbacks (door side): never
insert any objects in these slits.
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. Impacts to the underside of the
vehicle, eg. 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 handbook with the vehicle.
– When scrapping your vehicle, contact your approved Dealer for disposal of the
gas generator(s).
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.
1.31
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).
1.32
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.
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.
1.33
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.
1.34
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 or
buckle for as long as their size permits.
Choose a bucket type seat for optimum
side protection.w
Booster cushions
From 15 kg or 4 years, the child can
travel using a booster seat, which will
enable the seat belt to be adapted
to suit his/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.
child safety: choosing a child/baby seat mounting (1/2)
The are two ways of attaching child
seats: via the seat belt or using the
ISOFIX system.
Attachment via the seat belt
The seat belt must be adjusted to
ensure that it is effective in the event of
harsh braking or an impact.
Ensure that the strap paths indicated
by the child seat manufacturer are respected.
Always check that the seat belt is correctly fastened by pulling it up, then
pulling it out fully whilst pressing on the
child seat.
Check that the seat is correctly held by
moving it from side to side and back
to front: the seat should remain firmly
fixed.
Check that the child seat has not been
installed at an angle and that it is not
resting against a window.
Do not use the child seat
if it may unfasten the seat
belt restraining it: the base
of the seat must not rest on
the buckle and/or catch of the seat
belt.
The seat belt must never
be twisted or the tension
relieved. Never pass the
shoulder strap under the
arm or behind the back.
Check that the seat belt has not
been damaged by sharp edges.
If the seat belt does not operate normally, it will not protect the child.
Consult an approved Dealer. Do not
use this seat until the seat belt has
been repaired.
No modifications may be
made to the component
parts of the restraint system
(belts, ISOFIX and seats
and their mountings) originally fitted.
Attachment with the ISOFIX system
Authorised ISOFIX child seats are approved in accordance with regulation
ECE-R44 in one of the three following
scenarios:
– ISOFIX universal 3 point forwardfacing seat;
– ISOFIX semi-universal 2 point seat;
– specific.
For the latter two, check that your child
seat can be installed by consulting the
list of compatible vehicles.
Attach the child seat with the ISOFIX
locks, if these are provided. The ISOFIX
system allows quick, easy, safe fitting.
The ISOFIX system consists of 2 rings
and, in some cases, a third ring.
Before using an ISOFIX
child seat that you purchased for another vehicle,
check that its installation is
authorised. Consult the list of vehicles which can be fitted with the
seat with the equipment manufacturer.

The two rings 1 are located between
the seatback and the seat base, behind
the zip fasteners, 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.
Depending on the vehicle, pass the
strap between wheel arch liner 4 and
the underside of upper partition 5.
From the luggage compartment, attach
the strap hook to ring 3 on the corresponding side. Check that the bench
seatback is correctly locked.
Pull the belt so that the back of the child
seat comes into contact with the back
of the vehicle seat.
The anchoring points (rings) in luggage compartment 3 cannot be used if
they are already being used to mount two of the following three components: luggage net, load in the luggage compartment or child seat.
1.36
The ISOFIX anchorage
points have been exclusively designed for child
seats with the ISOFIX
system. Never fit a different type of
child seat, seat belt or other objects
to these anchorage points.
Check that nothing is obstructing
the anchorage points.
If your vehicle has been involved in
a road accident, have the ISOFIX
anchorage points checked and replace your child seat.
Child safety: Fitting a child seat (1/5)
Some seats are not suitable for fitting
child seats. The diagrams on the following pages show 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.
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
diagrams on the following pages.
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 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.
Push the vehicle seat fully forwards
to install a rear-facing child seat, then
push it back as far as possible without allowing it to make 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.

– do not use them when the windscreen or rear screen are dry;
– free them from the windscreen or
rear screen when they have not
been used for a long time.
Special note
In all cases, replace them as soon
as they begin to lose efficiency: approximately once a year.
If the windscreen wipers are operational when you select reverse gear, the
rear screen is wiped intermittently.
Before using the rear wiper, check
that no object obstructs the travel of
the blade.
Do not use the wiper arm to open or

FUEL TANK (1/2)
Fuel grade
Use a high-grade fuel that complies
with the legislation in force in each
country. It must conform to the specifications given on label A inside the fuel
filler flap. Please refer to the information
on “Engine specifications” in Section 6.
B
A
1
2
Diesel versions
It is essential to use diesel fuel that
conforms to the specifications given on
the label inside fuel filler flap A.
Make sure that no water accidentally
enters the fuel tank during filling. The
shut-off system and its surrounding
area must be dust-free.
3
Filling the tank
With the vehicle unlocked, to open the
fuel filler flap, place your finger in opening 1 and pull the flap.
Use the ignition key to open the cap 2.
Place the cap in cap holder 3 on the
fuel filler flap B during filling to hold the
cap 2 in place.
Useful capacity of fuel tank: approximately 60 litres.
1.76
Fuel filler cap: this is of a
special type.
If you have to replace it,
make sure it is identical
to the original cap. Contact an approved Dealer.
Never place the cap near a source
of heat or flame.
Do not wash the filler area with a
high-pressure washer.
Do not mix even small
amounts of petrol (unleaded or E85) with diesel.
Do not use ethanol-based
fuel if your vehicle is not compatible
with this fuel.
Do not add additive to the fuel –
otherwise you risk damaging the
engine.
FUEL TANK (2/2)
Petrol versions
It is essential to use unleaded petrol.
The octane rating (RON) should match
the information given on the label A located inside the fuel filler flap. Please
refer to the information on “Engine
specifications” in Section 6.
Vehicles running on ethanol-based
fuel
It is essential to use unleaded petrol or
fuel containing a maximum of 85% ethanol (E85).
In very cold conditions, it may be very
difficult or even impossible to start the
engine. To avoid this problem, use unleaded petrol or, on equipped vehicles,
use the heater integrated in the engine:
connect the correct end of the extension piece supplied into the socket integrated into the radiator grille and the
other end into a 220 V socket for at
least 6 hours before starting.
Note: you may notice an increase in
fuel consumption with this type of fuel.
Filling with fuel
With the ignition off, insert the nozzle
so that the valve opens and then fully
insert it before beginning to fill the tank
(risk of splashback).
Keep the nozzle in this position throughout the entire filling operation.
When the pump cuts out automatically
at the end of the filling procedure, a
maximum of two further filling attempts
may be made so as to leave sufficient
room for expansion.
Petrol versions
Persistent smell of
fuel
If you notice a persistent
smell of fuel you should:
– stop the vehicle as soon as traffic conditions allow and switch off
the ignition;
– switch on the hazard warning
lights and ask your passengers
to leave the vehicle and to keep
away from traffic;
– contact an approved Dealer.
Using leaded petrol will damage the
antipollution system and may lead to a
loss of warranty.
To ensure that the fuel tank is not filled
with leaded petrol, the fuel tank filler
neck consists of a restrictor fitted with
a foolproof system which only allows
a nozzle for unleaded petrol to be
used (at the pump).
No modifications whatsoever are permitted on
any part of the fuel supply
system (electronic unit,
wiring, fuel circuit, injector, protective covers, etc.) as this may be
dangerous (unless undertaken by
qualified Network personnel).

Driver’s responsibility
Never leave your vehicle with the key inside and
never leave a child (or a
pet) unsupervised, even for a short
while.
There is a risk that they could start
the engine or operate electrical
equipment (electric windows etc.)
and trap part of their body (neck,
arms, hands, etc.).
Risk of serious injury.
Never switch off the ignition before
the vehicle has stopped completely.
Once the engine has stopped, the
brake servo, power-assisted steering, etc., and the passive safety devices such as the airbags and pretensioners will no longer operate.
2.3

When stationary and depending on the slope and/or
vehicle load, it may be necessary to pull up the handbrake at least two extra notches and
engage a gear (1st or reverse gear)
for vehicles with a manual gearbox
or position P for vehicles with an automatic transmission.
Selecting reverse gear
(vehicle stationary)
Vehicles with manual gearbox: follow
the grid drawn on knob 1, and depending on the vehicle, lift ring against the
gear lever knob to select reverse.
Vehicle with automatic gearbox: refer
to the information on the “Automatic
gearbox” in Section 2.
The reversing lights will come on as
soon as reverse gear is selected (with
the ignition on).
2.4
An impact to the underside
of the vehicle (e.g.: striking
a post, raised kerb or other
street furniture) may result
in damage to the vehicle (e.g.: deformation of an axle).
To avoid any risk of accident, have
your vehicle checked by an approved Dealer.
Handbrake/Power-assisted steering
To apply:
Pull upwards, check that the vehicle is
properly immobilised.
1
2
Variable power-assisted
steering
The variable power-assisted steering
system is equipped with an electronic
control system which alters the level of
assistance to suit the vehicle speed.
Steering is made easier during parking
manoeuvres (for added comfort) while
the force needed to steer increases
progressively as the speed rises (for
enhanced safety at high speeds).
Handbrake
To release:
Pull lever 2 up slightly, press button 1
and then lower the lever to the floor.
Make sure that the handbrake is properly released
when driving (red indicator
light off), otherwise overheating, or even damage, may
occur.
When the vehicle is
stopped, depending on the
gradient and/or the vehicle
load, it may be necessary to
apply the handbrake by at least two
further notches and engage a gear
(1st or reverse).
Never switch off the ignition when travelling downhill, and avoid doing so in
normal driving (assistance
is not provided).
2.5
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.
Or operating faults such as:
– faulty ignition, 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.
If you notice any of the above operating
faults, have the necessary repairs carried out as soon as possible by an approved dealer.
These faults may be avoided by regularly taking your vehicle to an approved
Dealer at the intervals specified in the
Maintenance Service Booklet.
Starting problems
To avoid damaging the catalytic converter, do not keep trying to start the
engine (using the start button, or by
pushing or towing the vehicle) without
having identified and corrected the
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.
2.6
SPECIAL FEATURES OF DIESEL VERSIONS
Diesel engine speed
As a guide, this type of cleaning should
take up to 20 minutes.
Diesel engines are fitted with an injection pump with an electronic regulator
which prevents overrevving of the
engine irrespective of the gear engaged.
If the © warning light comes on,
contact an approved Dealer as soon as
possible.
When driving, depending on the fuel
grade used, it is possible that white
smoke may be emitted.
Running out of fuel
You may start the engine normally after
refilling the fuel tank even if you have
completely run out of fuel, provided
that the battery is fully charged.
However, if the engine does not start
after a few seconds and several attempts, refer to Section 5 “Diesel filter”.
Precautions to be taken in
winter
To avoid faults in icy weather:
– make sure that the battery is always
fully charged;
– always keep the diesel tank relatively full to prevent water vapour
condensing in it and accumulating at
the bottom of the tank.
1
This is due to the exhaust particle filter
being cleaned automatically, and does
not affect the way the vehicle runs.
Vehicles with particle filters
Depending on the vehicle, a 1 warning
light lights up on the instrument panel to
show that there is a risk of the particle
filter becoming clogged.
To clean the particle filter, in the
60 miles (100 km) following the appearance of the message, drive at an average speed of at least 24 mph (40 km/h)
where traffic conditions and the
speed limit will allow until the warning
light goes out.
You may need to restart the operation if
the vehicle has to stop before the warning light goes out.
Do not park the vehicle or
run the engine in locations
where combustible substances or materials such
as grass or leaves can come into
contact with the hot exhaust system.
2.7
Advice: antipollution, fuel economy and driving (1/3)
Your vehicle complies with criteria for
recycling and recovering vehicles at the
end of their service life which will come
into force in 2015.
Some parts of your vehicle have therefore been designed to facilitate future
recycling.
These parts are easy to remove so
that they can be recovered and reprocessed by recycling companies.
By virtue of its design, moderate fuel
consumption and initial settings, your
vehicle also conforms to current antipollution regulations. The manufacturer is actively striving to reduce pollutant exhaust gas emissions and to
save energy. But the fuel consumption
of your vehicle and the level of pollutant
exhaust gas emissions are also your
responsibility. Ensure that it is maintained and used correctly.
Aiding fuel economy
Depending on the vehicle, in order to
optimise consumption, an indicator light
on the instrument panel will inform you
of the best moment to upshift or downshift gears:
Š
‰
shift up a gear;
shift down a gear.
Maintenance
It is important to remember that failure to
respect antipollution regulations could
lead to legal action being taken against
the vehicle owner. In addition, replacing
engine, fuel supply system and exhaust
components with parts other than those
originally recommended by the manufacturer may alter your vehicle so that
it no longer complies with antipollution
regulations.
Have your vehicle adjusted and
checked by an approved Dealer, in accordance with the instructions given in
your maintenance schedule: they will
have all the equipment necessary for
ensuring that your vehicle is maintained
to its original standard.
Engine adjustments
– ignition: this does not require adjustment.
spark plugs: for optimum fuel economy, efficiency and performance
the specifications laid down by our
Design Department must be strictly
applied. If the spark plugs have to
be changed, use the make, type
and gap specified for your vehicle’s
engine. Contact an approved dealer
for this.
– idle speed: this does not require adjustment.
– air filter, diesel filter: a clogged element hinders performance. It must
be replaced.
2.8
Advice: antipollution, fuel economy and driving (2/3)
Exhaust gas monitoring
system
– Do not overrev the engine in the intermediate gears.
Always use the highest gear possible without labouring the engine.
– Do not try to maintain the same
speed up a hill, accelerate no more
than you would on the level. Keep
your foot in the same position on the
accelerator pedal.
– Double declutching and accelerating
before switching off are unnecessary
in modern vehicles.
– Bad weather, flooded roads:
The exhaust gas monitoring system will
detect any operating faults in the vehicle’s antipollution system.
If this system malfunctions, toxic substances may be released into the atmosphere or damage may occur.
Ä
This warning light on the instrument panel will indicate if
there are any faults in the system:
This lights up when the ignition is
switched on and goes out when the
engine is started.
– If it lights up continuously, consult an
approved Dealer as soon as possible;
– if it flashes, reduce the engine speed
until the light stops flashing. Contact
your approved dealer as soon as
possible.
Driving
– Drive carefully for the first few miles
until the engine reaches its normal
operating temperature, rather than
let it warm up while the vehicle is stationary.
– Speed is expensive.
– Sporty driving uses a lot of fuel: drive
with a light right foot.
– Brake as little as possible. If you anticipate an obstacle or bend in advance, simply release the accelerator pedal.
– Avoid sudden acceleration.
Do not drive through
floods if the water is
above the lower edge of
the wheel rims.
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.
Risk of pedals jamming
2.9
Advice: antipollution, fuel economy and driving (3/3)
– In vehicles fitted with air conditioning, it is normal to observe an
increase in fuel consumption (especially in urban conditions) when
it is used. For vehicles fitted with
manual air conditioning, switch off
the system when it is not required.
Advice for reducing consumption
and therefore helping to preserve
the environment:
If the vehicle has been parked in the
sun, open the doors for a few moments to let the hot air escape before
starting the engine.
Advice on use
– Electricity is fuel; switch off all the
electrical components which are
not really needed. However (safety
first), keep your lights on when the
visibility is bad (“see and be seen”).
– Use the air vents. Driving with the
windows open at 60 mph (100 km/h)
will increase fuel consumption by
4%.
2.10
– Never fill the fuel tank right to the
brim to avoid overflow.
– Do not leave an empty roof rack
fitted to the vehicle.
– It is better to fit a trailer for bulky objects.
– When towing a caravan, fit a wind
deflector and adjust it carefully.
– Avoid using the car for door-to-door
calls (short journeys with long waits
in between) because the engine
never reaches its normal operating
temperature.
Tyres
– An underinflated tyre increases fuel
consumption.
– The use of non-recommended tyres
can increase fuel consumption.
Environment
Your vehicle has been designed with
respect for the environment in mind for
its entire service life: during production,
use and at the end of its life.
This commitment is illustrated by the
Renault eco² group signature.
Manufacture
Your vehicle has been manufactured at
an industrial site which uses a progress
policy to reduce environmental impacts
on rivers and natural areas (reduction of water and energy consumption,
visual and noise pollution, atmospheric
emissions and waste water, sorting and
reusing waste).
Emissions
Recycling
Your vehicle has been designed to
emit fewer greenhouse gases (CO2)
while in use, and therefore to consume
less fuel (eg. 140 g/km, equivalent to
5.3 l/100 km for a diesel vehicle).
Our vehicles are also equipped with a
particle filter system including a catalytic converter, an oxygen sensor and
an active carbon filter (the latter prevents vapour from the fuel tank being
released into the open air).
Your vehicle is 85% recyclable and
95% recoverable.
Please make your own
contribution towards
protecting the environment
too.
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).
– Worn parts replaced in the course of
routine vehicle maintenance (vehicle battery, oil filter, air filter, batteries, etc.) and oil containers (empty or
filled with used oil) must be disposed
of through specialist organisations.
– At the end of the vehicle’s service
life, it should be sent to approved
centres to ensure that it is recycled.
– In all cases, comply with local legislation.
2.11
Driving correction devices (1/3)
Depending on the vehicle, this is composed of:
– ABS (anti-lock braking system);
– electronic stability program (ESP)
with understeer control and traction control (ASR);
– emergency brake assist with, depending on the vehicle, braking
anticipation;
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).
2.12
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).
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.
Operating faults:
x
– If the
warning light on the instrument panel comes on while driving, braking is still operational;
x
D
– If the
and
warning
lights on the instrument panel come
on when driving, this indicates a
fault with the braking system.
In these cases, the ABS, ESP and
emergency brake assist are all deactivated and the messages “Check ABS”,
“Check braking system” and “Check
ESP” are displayed on the instrument
panel.
Consult an approved dealer.
Your braking systems
are partially operational.
However, it is dangerous
to brake suddenly and
it is essential to stop immediately,
as soon as traffic conditions allow.
Contact an approved dealer.
Driving correction devices (2/3)
Electronic stability program
(ESP) with understeer control
and traction control (ASR)
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 the direction selected by the driver and the actual direction of the vehicle and corrects this
as necessary by applying the brakes
selectively and/or acting on the engine
power.
Understeer control
This system optimises the action of the
ESP in the case of pronounced understeering (loss of front axle road holding).
Traction control (ASR)
This system helps to limit wheelspin of
the drive wheels and to control the vehicle when pulling away accelerating or
decelerating.
Operating faults
When the system detects an operating fault the message “Check ESP” and
warning light © appear on the instrument panel. In this situation, ESP
and ASR are deactivated.
Consult an approved dealer.
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.

Emergency brake assist
Consult an approved dealer.
This is an additional system to ABS
which helps reduce vehicle stopping
distances.
Disabling the ASR function
In some situations (driving on very wet
ground: snow, mud, etc. or driving with
snow chains fitted), the system may
reduce the engine output to limit wheelspin. If this is not required, it is possible
to deactivate the function by pressing
switch 1.
The message “Traction control deactivated” is displayed on the instrument
panel to inform you.
2.14
Operating principle
The system detects 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 not released.
When the system detects an operating
fault the message “braking fault” appears on the instrument panel along
with the © warning light.

Limited speed cannot be maintained
When driving down a steep gradient,
the system is unable to maintain the
limit speed: the stored speed will flash
on the instrument panel information display to inform you of this situation.
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.
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.

The cruise control function helps you to
maintain your driving speed at a speed
that you choose, called the cruising
speed.
This cruising speed may be set at any
speed above 20 mph (30 km/h).
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 etc.).
There is a risk of accidents.

To move out of position P, you must
depress the brake pedal before
pressing the unlocking button.
In most traffic conditions, you will not
have to touch the gear selector lever
again: the gears will change automatically at the right time and at the most
suitable engine speed because the automatic system takes into account the
vehicle load and road contour and adjusts itself to the particular driving style
you have chosen.
Accelerating and overtaking
Depress the accelerator pedal firmly
and fully (so that it goes beyond the
kickdown point).
This will enable you to change down

PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL (1/2)
Operating principle
Ultrasonic sensors, fitted in the vehicle’s rear bumper, measure the distance between the vehicle and an obstacle when reversing.
This measurement is indicated by
beeps which become more frequent the
closer you come to the obstacle, until
they become a continuous beep when
the vehicle is approximately 25 centimetres from the obstacle.
This function is an additional aid that indicates the
distance between the vehicle and an obstacle whilst
reversing, using sound signals.
There is a beep when reverse gear is
engaged. If the beep sounds for a long
time (3 seconds), this signals an operating fault.
Under no circumstances should it
replace the driver’s care or responsibility whilst reversing.
Note: make sure that the ultrasonic
sensors are not obscured (by dirt, mud,
snow, etc.).
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).
The driver should always pay attention to sudden incidents during driving: always ensure that there are no
moving obstacles (such as a child,
animal, pram, bicycle, etc.) or small,
narrow objects such as stones or
posts in your path when manoeuvring.
To avoid any risk of accident, have
your vehicle checked by an approved dealer.

Air recirculation
Pressing button 12 activates air recirculation (the symbol lights up on the
display).
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.).
3.14
Prolonged use of the air recirculation
mode may cause the windows to mist
up or lead to odours, as the air is not
renewed.
We therefore advise you to return to
normal mode (external air or automatic
recirculation) as soon as air recirculation is no longer needed, by pressing
button 12.
AIR CONDITIONING: information and advice on use
Fuel consumption
You will normally notice an increase
in fuel consumption (especially
when driving in town) when the air
conditioning is operating.
For vehicles fitted with manual air
conditioning, switch off the system
when it is not required.
Advice for reducing consumption
and helping to preserve the environment
Drive with the air vents on and the
windows closed.
Operating faults
As a general rule, contact your approved Dealer in the event of an operating fault.
–Reduction in de-icing, demisting or air conditioning performance. This may be caused
by the passenger compartment
filter cartridge becoming clogged.
–No cold air is being produced.
Check that the controls are set
correctly and that the fuses are
sound. Otherwise, switch off the
system.
If the vehicle has been parked in
the sun, open the doors for a few
moments to let the hot air escape
before starting the engine.
Note
Maintenance
Refer to the Maintenance Service
Booklet for your vehicle for the inspection frequency.
Presence of water under the vehicle. After prolonged use of the air
conditioning system, it is normal for
water to be present under the vehicle. This is caused by condensation.
Do not open the refrigerant fluid circuit. The fluid
may damage eyes or skin.

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.
1
However, contact an approved Dealer if
more than 0.5 litres is being consumed
every 600 miles (1,000 km) after the

level from time to time and certainly
before any long journey to avoid the
risk of damaging your engine.
2
A
Reading the oil level
The oil level should be read with the vehicle on level ground, after the engine
has been switched off for some time.
The dipstick must be used to read
the exact oil level and make sure
that the maximum level has not been
exceeded (risk of engine damage).
Refer to the following pages.
The instrument panel display only
alerts the driver when the oil level is at
its minimum.
Minimum oil level display A

press button 1 or 2 again.
If the level is at the minimum
The message “adjust oil level” or “oil”
and the © warning light are displayed on the instrument panel.
It is vital to top up the oil as soon as
possible.
The display only warns the
driver if the oil level is at the
minimum level. It does not
inform the driver that the oil
level has exceeded the maximum
level as this can only be measured
using a dipstick.

it does, wash the affected area with
plenty of cold water. If necessary,
consult a doctor.
Depending on the vehicle, a system
continuously checks the battery charge
status.
When the ignition is off, some consumers may also be switched off (dipped
beam headlights, radio, ventilation,
etc.). On the instrument panel, the
message “battery saving mode” or “batt
save” appears when they are switched
off . When the level is extremely low,
the message “low battery, start engine”
is displayed.
The charge status of the battery can
decrease, especially if you use your vehicle:

Bodywork maintenance (1/2)
A well-maintained vehicle will last
longer. It is therefore recommended to
maintain the exterior of the vehicle regularly.
Protection against the effects
of corrosive agents
Although your vehicle has been treated
with very effective anti-corrosion products, it nevertheless remains subject to
the effects of:
– corrosives in the atmosphere
–atmospheric pollution (built-up
and industrial areas),
–saline atmospheres (near the
sea, particularly in hot weather),
–seasonal and damp climatic conditions, (e.g.: road salt in winter,
water from road cleaners, etc.).
– abrasives
Wind-borne dust and sand, mud,
road grit thrown up by other vehicles, etc.
– minor impacts
You should take a minimum number of
precautions in order to safeguard your
vehicle against such risks and not to
lose the benefit of your vehicle’s anticorrosion protection.
What you should not do
– Degrease or clean mechanical components (e.g. the engine compartment), underneath the body, parts
with hinges (e.g. inside the fuel tank
flap) and painted plastic external
fittings (e.g. bumpers) using highpressure cleaning equipment or by
spraying on products not approved
by our Technical Department. If adequate precautions are not taken, this
could give rise to corrosion or operational faults.
– Wash the vehicle in bright sunlight or
freezing temperatures.
– Scrape off mud or dirt without
prewetting.
– Allow dirt to accumulate.
4.12
– Allow rust to form following minor impacts.
– Use solvents not approved by our
Technical Department to remove
stains as this could damage the
paintwork.
– Drive frequently in snow or muddy
conditions without washing the vehicle, particularly under the wheel
arches and body.
Bodywork maintenance (2/2)
You should
– Observe the vehicle stopping distances when driving on gravelled
surfaces to prevent paint damage.
– Repair, or have repaired quickly,
areas where the paint has been
damaged, to prevent corrosion
spreading.
– Remember to visit the body shop
periodically if your vehicle has an
anti-corrosion warranty. Refer to the
Maintenance Service Booklet.
– Respect local regulations about
washing vehicles (e.g. do not wash
your vehicle on a public highway).
– Wash your car frequently, with the
engine off, with cleaning products
recommended by our Technical
Department (never use abrasive
products) and be sure to jet-rinse off:
–spots of tree resin and industrial
grime;
–bird droppings, which cause a
chemical reaction with the paint
that rapidly discolours paintwork and may even cause the
paint to peel off;
Wash the vehicle immediately to
remove these marks since it is impossible to remove them by polishing;
–salt, particularly in the wheel
arches and underneath the body
after driving in areas where the
roads have been gritted;
–mud in the wheel arches and underneath the body which forms
damp patches.
– Before going through a roller type car
wash, return the windscreen wiper
stalk to the Park position (refer to
the information on the “Windscreen
wash/wipe” in Section 1). Check the
mounting of external accessories,
additional lights and mirrors, and
ensure that the wiper blades are secured with adhesive tape.
Remove the radio aerial mast if your
vehicle is fitted with this equipment.
Remember to remove the tape and
refit the antenna after washing.
– Spray mechanical components,
hinges, etc. with products approved
by our Technical Department to
protect them after they have been
cleaned.
We have selected special products
to care for your vehicle and you can
obtain these from the manufacturer’s accessory outlets.
4.13
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.
Rinse and soak up the excess.
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.
Cleaning products containing alcohol must not be used under any circumstances.
Seat belts
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.
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
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.
Special instructions for sweets or
chewing gum
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.
4.14
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.

TYRE PRESSURE KIT (1/3)
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.

If the vehicle is parked on
the hard shoulder, you must
warn other road users of
your vehicle’s presence
with a warning triangle or with other
devices as per the legislation applying to the country you are in.
Before using this kit, park the vehicle at a sufficient distance from traffic,
switch on the hazard warning lights, apply the handbrake, ask all passengers to leave the vehicle and keep them away from traffic.

– unscrew the valve cap on the wheel
concerned and screw the inflation
adapter 6 onto the valve;
– connect adapter 8 to the accessories
socket on the dashboard of the vehicle;
– press switch 5 to inflate the tyre to
the recommended pressure (check
the label affixed to the edge of the
driver’s door);
– after a maximum of 5 minutes, stop
inflating and read the pressure (on
pressure gauge 4);
Note: while the bottle is emptying (approximately 30 seconds), pressure
gauge 4 will briefly indicate a pressure
of 6 bar, then the pressure will drop.
– adjust the pressure: to increase
it, continue inflating with the kit, to
reduce it, turn button 7 located on
the inflation adapter.
If a minimum pressure of 1.8 bar is
not reached after 15 minutes, repair
is not possible; do not drive the vehicle but contact an approved dealer.

Once the tyre is inflated correctly:
– stop using the kit;
– close the integrated cap on the bottle
again;
– disconnect adapter 8;
Nothing should be placed
around the driver’s feet
as such objects may slide
under the pedals during
sudden braking manoeuvres and
obstruct their use.
– affix the driving recommendation
label 10 to the dashboard where it
can easily be seen by the driver;
– store the kit;
– at the end of this initial inflation operation, air will still escape from the
tyre; you must drive a short distance
in order to seal the hole;
– start immediately and drive at between 12 and 40 mph (20 and
60 km/h) in order to distribute the
product evenly in the tyre and, after
driving for 2 miles, stop and check
the pressure;
– if the pressure is greater than 1.3 bar
but less than the recommended
pressure (refer to the label affixed to
the edge of the driver’s door), readjust it; otherwise, please contact an
authorised dealer: the tyre cannot be
repaired.
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 label, which
you must affix in a prominent position on the dashboard, reminds you
of this. Depending on the country or
local legislation, a tyre repaired with
the tyre pressure kit will need to be
replaced.

If the vehicle is not equipped with a
jack or wheelbrace, you can obtain
these from your approved dealer.
If the vehicle is parked on
the hard shoulder, you must
warn other road users of
your vehicle’s presence
with a warning triangle or with other
devices as per the legislation applying to the country you are in.
To prevent any risk of injury
or damage to the vehicle,
only crank the jack until the
wheel you are replacing is
a maximum of 3 centimetres off the
ground.
CHANGING A WHEEL (2/2)
Undo the bolts and take off the wheel.
For vehicles fitted with alloy wheels,
use the guide bolt located in the tool kit
to finish loosening and start tightening
the bolts.
Fit the emergency spare wheel on
the central hub and turn it to align the
mounting holes in the wheel and the
hub.
Tighten the bolts and lower the jack.
If bolts are supplied with the emergency
spare wheel, only use these bolts for
the emergency spare wheel.
Tighten the bolts, checking that the
wheel is correctly positioned on its hub
and unscrew the jack.
With the wheels on the ground, tighten
the screws as fully as possible and
check the tightness as soon as possible (tightening torque 110 Nm).
Anti-theft bolt
If you use anti-theft bolts, fit these
nearest the valve (wheel trim may
not be able to fit).
If you have a puncture, replace the wheel as soon as
possible.
A tyre which has been punctured should always be inspected
(and repaired, where possible) by a
specialist.
5.9
Tyres (1/3)
Tyre and wheel safety
The tyres are the only contact between
the vehicle and the road, so it is essential to keep them in good condition.
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.
5.10
The tyres must be in good condition
and the tread form must have sufficient
depth; tyres approved by our Technical
Department have tread wear indicators 1 which are indicators moulded
into the tread at several points.
Incidents which occur when
driving, such as striking the
kerb, may damage the tyres
and wheel rims, and could
also lead to misalignment of the
front or rear axle geometry. In this
case, have the condition of these
checked by an approved dealer.
Tyres (2/3)
Tyre pressures
Respect the tyre pressures (including
the emergency spare wheel). Check
them at least once a month and before
a long journey (refer to the label on 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.
Fitting new tyres
For safety reasons, this operation must be carried out
by a specialist.
Fitting different tyres may
change your vehicle as follows:
– may mean that your vehicle no
longer conforms to current regulations;
– it may change the way it handles
when cornering;
Incorrect tyre pressures
lead to abnormal tyre wear
and unusually hot running.
These are factors which
may seriously affect safety and lead
to:
– 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”).
Changing wheels around
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.
This practice is not recommended.
Emergency spare wheel
Refer to the information on the
“Emergency spare wheel” and instructions on “Changing a wheel” in
Section 5.
5.11
Tyres (3/3)
Use in winter
–Chains
For safety reasons, fitting snow
chains to the rear axle is strictly
forbidden.
Chains must not be fitted to tyres
which are larger than those originally
fitted to the vehicle.
–Snow or winter tyres
We would recommend that these be
fitted to all four wheels to ensure
that your vehicle retains maximum
grip.
Note: be aware that these tyres may
sometimes have:
– a direction of travel ;
– 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.
Only certain chains can be fitted to
tyres. Consult an approved Dealer.
5.12
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.

the battery charger you are using.
The two batteries must have an identical nominal voltage of 12 volts. The
battery supplying the current should
have a capacity (amp-hours, Ah) which
is at least the same as that of the discharged battery.
Ensure that there is no risk of contact
between the two vehicles (risk of short
circuiting when the positive terminals
are connected) and that the discharged
battery is properly connected. Switch
off your vehicle ignition.
Start the engine of the vehicle supplying the current and run it at an intermediate engine speed.
Connect the positive (+) lead A to (+)
terminal 1 of the discharged battery,
then to (+) terminal 2 of the battery supplying the current.
Connect the negative (–) lead B to (–)
terminal 3 of the battery supplying the
current and then to (–) terminal 4 of the
discharged battery.
Check that there is no contact between
leads A and B and that the positive (+)
lead A is not touching any metal parts
on the vehicle supplying the current.
Start the engine as normal. As soon as
it is running, disconnect leads A and B
in the reverse order (4-3-2-1)
Special procedures may be
required to charge some
batteries. Contact your approved dealer.
