TRAVELLING SAFELY AND PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
Safety and respect for the environment are the guidelines that inspired the Lancia Y’s design from the
drawing board onwards.
This concept has meant that the Lancia Y has been able to face and pass the strictest safety tests.
So much so that, from this point of view, the car is the best in its class and has already incorporated
features that will become compulsory in the years to come.
Ongoing research into new and effective features to help safeguard the environment makes the
Lancia Y a car to imitate for this reason as well.
All versions are in fact equipped with environmental protection devices that reduce harmful exhaust
fumes in compliance with the limits provided for by current legislation.
What’s more, it is totally recyclable. It has been designed to ensure a correct ecological treatment and
recycling of all its component materials at the end of its life. When the time comes for your Lancia Y
to be scrapped your LANCIA Dealership is committed to helping you to ensure that it is totally recycled. Nature benefits in two ways: nothing is wasted or thrown away and there is a correspondingly
smaller need for new raw materials.

SAFEGUARDING THE ENVIRONMENT
The design and production of the Lancia Y has eliminated the use of a whole series of polluting materials and led to the perfection of devices that can reduce or considerably curtail harmful influences on
the environment. The Lancia Y is consequently ready to travel well ahead of the most stringent international pollution control standards.
USE OF MATERIALS THAT DO NOT HARM THE ENVIRONMENT
None of the car’s components contain asbestos. Padding and the air conditioning system do not contain CFC’s (Chlorofluorocarbides), gases considered responsible for the destruction of the ozone layer.
None of the colourings and anti-corrosion coatings of the nuts and bolts contain air- or water-table-polluting cadmium or chromates, but environmentally-friendly substances.

DEVICES FOR REDUCING ENGINE EMISSIONS
Three-way catalytic converter (catalytic exhaust pipe)
Carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and unburnt hydrocarbons are the main harmful components in
exhaust gases.
The catalytic exhaust pipe and the devices connected to it are a “miniature laboratory” where a very
high percentage of these components are converted into harmless substances.
This conversion is aided by minute particles of precious metals on the ceramic core enclosed in the
stainless-steel container.
Lambda sensors
All are fitted with these devices. They ensure that air and fuel are constantly mixed in the correct proportion. This is a fundamental condition for proper engine and catalytic converter operation.
Evaporation control systems
As it is impossible to stop the build-up of petrol fumes even when the engine is not running, the system traps them in a special container holding active carbon. They are sucked in from here and burnt
while the engine is running.

THE SIGNS TO HELP YOU DRIVE CORRECTLY
The signs you see on this page are very important. They highlight those parts of the handbook where,
more than elsewhere, you should stop for a minute and read carefully.
As you can see, each sign has a different symbol to make it immediately clear and easy to identify the
subjects in the different areas:
Personal safety.
Important. Total or partial failure to
follow these instructions can place
driver, passengers or others in serious
danger.
Environmental protection.
This shows you the correct procedures
to follow to ensure the car will not
harm the environment.

THE LANCIA
CODE SYSTEM
THE KEYS
To further protect your car from attempted theft, it has been fitted with
an electronic engine immobiliser system called “Lancia CODE”, which is
currently considered the most effective way of protecting your car against
theft. This system is automatically
activated each time the engine is
switched off. Each ignition key, in
fact, contains an electronic device
which modulates a radio-frequency
signal emitted by a special aerial during ignition. The modulated signal is
a “password” with which the control
unit recognises the key. Engine ignition is enabled only if the key is recognised by the system.
The car is always supplied with a
single A key and B or C keys depending on the version:
Three types of key (fig. 1) are supplied with the car.
– version without remote control,
two B keys;
– versions with door lock/unlock remote control, one B key and one C key;
P4C00056
Key A, with a burgundy grip, is the
“master” key. Only one of these keys
is provided, and it is used to store the
codes of new keys replacing ones that
have been lost or damaged, or when
storing duplicate key codes. Given its
importance, it should be kept in a safe
place (not in the car) and only be
used when absolutely necessary.
fig. 1
Key B, with a black grip, is the key
that is to be used normally. It will:
– start the engine
– unlock/lock the doors
– unlock/lock the boot
– unlock/lock the fuel tank cap.
– deactivate the passenger airbag.
Key C, (which may be supplied as
an alternative to the B key), has the
same functions as key B, plus the remote control function for the door
lock/unlock system.
The key is supplied together with the
CODE card (fig. 2) which bears:
D - the electronic code to be used for
emergency starting (see “In an emergency”);
No repairs can be carried out on
the Lancia CODE system or the engine control unit if this key is lost.

E - the mechanical key code to be
given to the LANCIA Dealership
when ordering duplicate keys;
F - the spaces for stickers bearing
the code of any remote controls provided.
The code numbers on the CODE
card and the key with the burgundy
grip must be kept in a safe place.
You should keep the electronic code
written on the CODE card with you
at all times in case it is necessary to
start the car using the emergency procedure.
OPERATION
Each time the ignition key is turned
to STOP or PARK, the protection
system will immobilise the engine.
When the key is turned to MAR at
engine startup:
1) If the code is recognised, the
warning lamp ¢ on the instrument
panel will flash briefly; this means
that the protection system has recognised the key code and disabled the
engine immobiliser; turn the key to
AVV to start.
2) If the code is not recognised, the
warning lamp ¢ and the warning
lamp
will remain lit. Should this
happen, turn the key back
to STOP and then to MAR; if the engine remains immobilised, try using
the other keys supplied with the car.
If you are still unable to start the engine, use the emergency starting procedure (see “In an emergency”), and
take your car immediately to the
nearest LANCIA Dealership.
When travelling with the ignition
key on MAR:
1) If the warning lamp ¢ lights up
while the car is moving, it means that
the system is running a self-diagnosis
(e.g. due to a voltage drop).
The first time you stop you can test
the system: turn the ignition key to
STOP to switch off the engine then to
MAR again. Warning lamp ¢ will
switch on and should switch off again
after about 1 second.
If the warning light remains on, repeat the previous operations again
leaving the key at STOP for more
than 30 seconds. If the fault persists,
contact a LANCIA Dealership.
2) If the warning lamp ¢ flashes it
means that the car is not protected by
the immobiliser. Contact your LANCIA Dealership immediately and get
them to store the codes of all the keys
in the memory.
IMPORTANT The electronic components inside the key may be damaged if the key is subjected to sharp
knocks.
IMPORTANT Each key given with
the car has its own code, different
from all the others, which must be
stored in the memory of the system’s
control unit.

DUPLICATE KEYS
If you ask for extra keys, remember
that all the keys, both the new ones
and those you already possess, must
be stored in the memory (up to a
maximum of 7). Go directly to your
nearest LANCIA Dealership, taking
with you the burgundy “master” key,
all the keys in your possession and the
CODE card. The LANCIA Dealership may ask you to demonstrate that
you own the car.
Ministerial homologation
DOOR LOCK/UNLOCK
REMOTE CONTROL (fig. 3)
With respect to the legislation in
force in each country on the use of radio frequencies:
The remote control is built into the
ignition key. It consists of a button C
and a LED D. The button operates
the control and the LED flashes while
the transmitter is sending the code to
the receiver.
– the market specific homologation
codes are given in the chapter “Accessory installation”;
– the homologation code is printed
on the ignition key-remote control for
the markets which require it.
This a radio-frequency remote control and must be used close to the car.
The codes of any keys that are not
available when the new storage procedure is carried out will be deleted
from the memory to prevent any lost
keys being used to start the car.
P4C00058
The burgundy key, plus
all the other keys, and the
CODE card must be
handed over to the new owner
when selling the car.

Change the remote control batteries
when the LED on the remote control
flashes once only when pressed.
Change the batterie with a similar
type as follows: open the plastic covers; insert the new batterie respecting
the polarity shown; close the plastic
covers.
The key can turn through four positions (fig. 5):
– STOP: engine off, key can be removed and the steering column is
locked. Some electrical devices can be
used (e.g. sound system, central door
lock, etc.).
If the ignition switch has
been tampered with (e.g.
someone has tried to steal
your car), get a LANCIA Dealership to make sure it is still functioning properly before you start
driving again.
– MAR: drive position. All electrical
devices can be used.
Used batteries are an environmental hazard. Dispose of them in appropriate containers as prescribed by the
law. Alternatively, take the batteries to a LANCIA Dealership who
will dispose of them correctly.

SEAT BELTS
The lower part of the front seat belts
slides on a bar to make it easier for
you to get hold of the belt when
putting it on.
HOW TO USE THE SEAT BELTS
(for the front and back side seats)
(fig. 16)
Press button C to unfasten the belts.
Guide the belt with your hand as it
rewinds to prevent it twisting.
Pull the seat belt out gently; if the
belt jams, let it rewind for a short
stretch, then pull it out again without
jerking.
Make the height adjustment when the car is stationary.
The belt unwinds from the reel and
automatically adjusts to fit the passenger’s body, allowing him or her to
move in complete freedom. When the
car is parked on a slope the reel may
lock. This is quite normal.
To fasten the seat belts, take the
tongue of fastener A and push it into
buckle B until you hear it click.
P4C00397
The reel mechanism also prevents
the webbing coming out when it is
jerked or if the car brakes sharply, is
in a collision or when taking bends at
high speed.
fig. 16
ADJUSTING THE FRONT SEAT
BELT HEIGHT (fig. 17)
Always adjust the height of the seat
belt to fit the person wearing it. This
could greatly reduce the risk of injury
in the case of collision.
For maximum safety,
keep the back of your seat
upright, lean back into it
and make sure the seat belt fits
closely across your chest and hips.

The belt is adjusted properly when
the webbing passes approximately
halfway between the edge of the
shoulder and the neck.
The seat belt can be adjusted to one
of four different heights.
To lift the belt
Lift loop B (fig. 17) to the required
position.
To lower the belt
Press knob A (fig. 17) and move
loop B down to the position required.
After you have made the
adjustment, always make
sure the slider the loop is
attached to catches firmly in one of
the fixed positions and cannot
move. To check this, release the
knob and push again so that it can
catch into place if it is not properly
latched in position.
PRETENSIONERS
The Lancia Y is fitted with pretensioners to enable the seat belts to offer even more effective protection.
These devices “feel” that a violent collision is in progress, via a sensor, and
call in a few inches of webbing. The
pretensioner, therefore, ensures the
belt is adhering perfectly to the body
before it begins to stop the wearer
moving forward.
When the seat belt locks, it indicates
the pretensioner has been activated.
The belt will not wind back even if
accompanied manually.
A small amount of smoke may be
noticed: this is not harmful and does
not indicate the beginning of a fire.
For maximum pretensioner protection, make sure your seat belt fits
snugly to your chest and hips.
Never dismantle or tamper with pretensioner
components. Any intervention must be performed by skilled
and qualified personnel. Always
have interventions performed at a
LANCIA Dealership.
The pretensioner needs no maintenance or lubrication. Any modification to its original features will nullify
the pretensioner’s effectiveness. If water or mud accidentally get into the
pretensioner as a result of floods or
storms, the device must be replaced.
22
G
4C001-067 ING
11-03-2008

Pagina 23
The pretensioners can
only be used once. After
they have been activated,
have them replaced at a LANCIA
Dealership.
The device was made to last 10
years from the manufacturing date
shown in the specific adhesive label. The pretensioners must be
changed before expiry.
IMPORTANT The seat belt has
been adjusted correctly when it fits
snugly across the wearer’s hips.
USE OF THE REAR SEAT BELTS
(fig. 18)
The belts for the back seats must be
worn as shown.
To ensure the correct buckle is used,
the tongues of the side seat belts will
not fit into the buckle of the middle
seat belt.
You should put the belt on when you
are sitting upright and leaning back
in your seat.
P4C00066
Work involving knocks,
vibrations or localised
heating (maximum 6 hours
at over 100° C) near the pretensioner unit can cause damage or
even trigger the device. Vibrations
caused by uneven roads or accidentally driving over small bumps
(e.g. curbs), etc., do not fall into
this category. See a LANCIA Dealership if work is required on the
device.
Remember, in the case of
a violent collision, back
seat passengers not wearing seat belts also represent a serious danger to the passengers in
the front.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
FOR THE USE OF THE SEAT
BELTS
To fasten the seat belt: push the
tongue of fastener A into slot B of the
buckle until you hear it click.
The driver is responsible for respecting and making sure the passengers respect the local rules on the use
of seat belts.
To unfasten the seat belt: press
button C.
To adjust the seat belt: slide the
webbing through adjuster D, pulling
end E to shorten it and length F to
lengthen it.
IMPORTANT The belt is adjusted
properly when it fits closely across the
hips.
The webbing must not be
twisted. The upper section
must pass across the
shoulder and chest diagonally. The
lower part must fit closely across
the passengers’ hips and not the
abdomen, to prevent them sliding
forward (fig. 20). Do not use clips,
fasteners, etc. to prevent the belt
adhering to the passenger’s body.

increase the risk of serious injury
or death in a collision if you travel
with the belts unfastened even if
your car is fitted with the airbag
system.

Never travel with a child
sitting on a passenger’s lap
with a single seat belt to
protect them both (fig. 21).
SEVERE DANGER:
if the car has a passenger airbag, do
not place the child seat on the
front seat.
If the belt has undergone
serious strain, for example
following an accident, replace the belt with its anchorages,
the anchorage screws and the pretensioner. Even if there is no visible damage, the resistance properties may have deteriorated.
Seat belts must also be worn by expectant mothers: the risk of injury in
the case of accident is much greater
for them, too, if they do not have a
seat belt on.
HOW TO MAINTAIN
THE SEAT BELTS
IN GOOD WORKING ORDER
1) When wearing the seat belts, always ensure they are not twisted but
lie flat across the chest and hips and
ensure that they run easily and freely.
2) Following a serious accident, replace the belt being worn at the time,
even if it does not seem damaged.
3) When cleaning the belts, wash
them by hand with water and neutral
soap, rinse them and let them dry in
the shade. Do not use strong detergents, bleach, colouring or any other
chemical substance that could weaken
the fibres.
Of course, expectant mothers must
position the lower part of the belt very
low down so that it passes under the
stomach, (fig. 22).

4) Do not allow the reels to get wet:
they are only guaranteed to work
properly if they remain dry.

TRANSPORTING
CHILDREN SAFELY
For the best protection in the event
of a crash, all passengers must be
seated and wearing adequate restraint
systems.
This is especially relevant for children.
The groups partially overlap. This is
because there are systems which cover
more than one weight group.
All restraint systems must show homologation data and control marks on
a tag securely fastened to the system
and that cannot be removed.
Children weighing more than 36 kg
and taller than 1.5 m are, with reference to restraint systems, considered
adults and can wear normal seat belts.
We recommend using Lineaccessori
LANCIA child restraint systems for
each weight group as they have been
specifically designed for LANCIA vehicles.
P4C00312
A child’s head, in respect to that of
an adult, is larger and heavier in relation to the body. Moreover the muscular and bone structure is not fully
developed. For these reasons, children
require specific restraint systems, different to those required by adult passengers.
The results of research on the best
child restraint systems are contained
in the European Standard ECE-R44.
This Standard enforces the use of restraint systems classified in four
groups, (fig. 23):
Group 0
weight 0 - 10 kg
Group 1
weight 9 - 18 kg
Group 2
weight 15 - 25 kg
Group 3
weight 22 - 36 kg.

We recommend sitting
children on the rear seat.
This is the most protected
position in the event of a crash.
Never fit child restraint systems in
the front passenger seat in vehicles
with a passenger airbag. The inflated airbag could cause even fatal injury, regardless of the severity of the crash which triggered it
off.
Children can sit in the front passenger seat in cars with passenger
side airbag only if the system has
been deactivated. In this case, always make sure that the amber instrument panel warning light is on
to confirm that the airbag has been
deactivated.
GROUP 0
GROUP 1
Babies up to 10 kg are to be seated
in a cot type seat facing backwards
and supporting the child’s head. This
ensures there is no stress on the child’s
neck in sudden deceleration
Children from 9 kg are to be seated
facing forward in child seats with
front cushions, (fig. 25). The vehicle
seat belt secures both seat and child.
The cot is secured with the seat belts
as shown in (fig. 24). The child must
be strapped to the carrier.
The figure is only an example for the installation.
Follow the instructions

There are child restraints
for Groups 0 and 1 which
are fastened with the vehicle seat belts by means of an attachment on the seat back. The
child is then secured to the seat
with specific straps. Due to their
weight, child seats can be dangerous if they are not fitted correctly
(e.g. by placing a cushion between
the seat and the belts). Always follow carefully the installation instructions provided with the child
restraint system you are using.

GROUP 2
GROUP 3
Children from 15 kg can be secured
directly with the vehicle seat belts.
The child seat has the purpose of positioning the child correctly with respect to the seat belt so that the diagonal section crosses the child’s chest
(never the child’s throat) and the horizontal section fits snugly on the
child’s hips (and not on the child’s
abdomen) (fig. 26).
Children from 22 kg up only require
a cushion to lift them (fig. 27). The
size of the child’s chest no longer requires a support to space the child’s
back from the seat back.
Children taller than 1.5 m can wear
seat belts like adults.
To sum up the safety precautions
to follow when transporting children:
1) Child restraint systems should be
installed on the rear seat as this is the
most protected area in the car in the
event of a crash.
The figure is only an example for the installation.
Follow the instructions
provided with the restraint system
you are using.
fig. 26
P4C00314
P4C00313
2) Children must never be seated in
the front passenger seat in cars with
passenger seat airbag.
3) Always check that the amber instrument panel warning light comes
on after deactivating the passenger
front airbag (in model/versions where
fitted).
4) Follow the instructions for fastening the specific child restraint system you are using. These must be
provided by the manufacturer. Keep
the child restraint system installation
instructions with the vehicle documents and this handbook. Never use
a second-hand child restraint system
without installation instructions.
5) Always check the seat belt is well
fastened by pulling the webbing.
6) The child restraint system is designed for one child only. Never carry
two children in one restraint system.
7) Always check the seat belts do not
fit around the child’s neck.
8) While travelling do not let the
child sit incorrectly or release the belts.
9) Passengers should never carry
children on their laps. No-one, however strong they may be, can hold a
child in the event of a crash.
10) Replace the child restraint system after an accident.

2. A constant light - indicates that the
key code has not been recognised. To
start the engine, follow the emergency
startup procedure described in the “In

The warning lamp will light up when
you turn the key to MAR, but it
should go out as soon as the engine
starts.
The car is fitted with an
electronic brake distributor (EBD). If warning lights

when the engine is running, this
indicates an EBD fault. This
means that violent braking could
cause early locking of the rear
wheels causing the car to skid.
Drive very carefully to the nearest
LANCIA Dealership to have the
system checked.
If only warning light >
switches on when the engine is running, this usually indicates an ABS fault. In such
cases the braking system is still efficient, although the anti-locking
device does not function. The EBD
system may also be less efficient.
Go to a LANCIA Dealership immediately, taking care not to brake
suddenly, and have the system
checked.
EOBD SELFDIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM
(amber)
In normal conditions, the warning
light will come on when the ignition
key is turned to MAR and should go
out as soon as the engine is started.
The initial lighting up shows that the
warning light is working properly.

may increase emissions in exhaust or
cause possible drops in performance,
poor handling and high consumption.
In such conditions, you can continue
driving but you should not tax the engine and you should moderate the
speed. Prolonged use with the warning light on can cause damage. Contact a LANCIA Dealership as soon
as possible.
The warning light will go out when
the failure disappears. In any case, the
system will store the error.
2. Flashing light - warning that the
catalyser can be damaged (see
“EOBD system” in this chapter).
If the warning light starts flashing, release the accelerator pedal and slow
the engine until the warning light
stops flashing. Continue driving at
moderate speed, preventing the warning light from coming on again. Contact a LANCIA Dealership as soon
as possible.
Contact a Lancia Dealership as soon as possible if

other road users.
This is also covered by a specific law.
The rear part of the ski/roof rack
should be attached to the edge of the
roof where the symbol V is to be
found on the windows.
Never load the rack with
more than the weight allowed (see the “Technical
specifications” section).
To ensure you and other drivers
have the best visibility conditions
when travelling with the headlights
on, the headlights must be set properly.

Position 3 - driver + maximum permissible load all in the boot.
ABS
The car is fitted with an ABS braking system that prevents the wheels
locking when braking, it exploits the
grip on the road surface holding the
car in the case of sudden braking.
The driver becomes aware of the
ABS activation through a slight throbbing of the brake pedal and the relevant noise it makes.
This does not indicate brake malfunctioning, it is an indication to the
driver that the ABS is operating. It is
a warning that the car is travelling at
borderline road grip and therefore the
speed should be adjusted to the type
of road surface.
The ABS is an addition to the basic
braking system; in the case of a failure it disables, leaving the braking
system in the same conditions as a vehicle without ABS installed.
fig. 84

G
4C001-067 ING
11-03-2008
11:57
Pagina 57
In the case of failure, although the
anti-locking system is no longer available, the car braking capacity is not
interfered with.
If you have never driven a car with
ABS it is advised to familiarise by
making a few preliminary trials on
slippery ground, obviously maintaining safety conditions and respecting
the Highway Code of the country
where you are travelling. Before starting, read carefully the notes below.
The advantage of ABS as compared
with the traditional system is that it
permits maximum manoeuvrability
even when pressing the brakes right
down on roads with poor grip, preventing the wheels from locking.
However, this does not mean that
with ABS the braking distance is always reduced. For example, on soft
gravel surfaces or fresh snow on a
slippery surface the distance could increase.
In order to get the best out of the
anti-lock system when necessary, follow these hints.
If there is a system failure, indicated by warning
light > lighting up on the
instrument panel, drive slowly and
go immediately to a LANCIA Dealership to have the system checked.
ABS exploits the available grip, but it is not able
to increase it. Therefore
drive carefully on slippery surfaces
and do not take undue risks.
When braking round a bend be very
careful, even with the aid of ABS.
If the ABS triggers it
means that the car is
reaching the limit of adherence between the tyres and the
road surface. Slow down to adapt
the speed to the road grip.
However, the most important advice
is the following:
When the ABS switches
on and you feel the pedal
throbbing, no not lighten
the pressure, but keep the pedal
pressed well down and do not
worry. In this way you will be able
to stop within the minimum distance possible, according to the
road surface.
Following these instructions you will
be always have the best braking conditions.

IMPORTANT Cars fitted with ABS
must always be fitted with the wheel
rims, tyres and brake linings of the
type and make recommended by the
Manufacturer.
The system also includes the EBD
electronic brake correction (Electronic
Brake Distributor) which, through the
control unit and the ABS sensors further enhances the braking system.
If only warning light >
switches on when the engine is running, this usually indicates an ABS fault. In such
cases the braking system is still efficient, although the anti-locking
device does not function. The EBD
system may also be less efficient.
Go to a LANCIA Dealership immediately, taking care not to brake
suddenly, and have the system
checked.
FRONT AND SIDE
AIRBAGS
FRONT AIRBAGS (fig. 85)
Description and operation
The front airbag (driver and passenger) is a safety device which is immediately triggered in the event of a
front impact.
It consists of an instantly inflatable
bag housed in a special compartment
located:
The car is fitted with an
electronic brake distributor (EBD). If warning lights
> and x light up simultaneously
when the engine is running, this
indicates an EBD fault. This
means that violent braking could
cause early locking of the rear
wheels causing the car to skid.
Drive very carefully to the nearest
LANCIA Dealership to have the
system checked.
– in the centre of the steering wheel
on the driver’s side;
If the x brake fluid low
warning light comes on,
stop the car immediately
and contact the nearest LANCIA
Dealership. Fluid leaks from the
hydraulic system, can compromise
brake system operation, both traditional systems and systems with
ABS.
– in the dashboard on the passenger’s side (larger bag).
The front airbag (driver and passenger) is a device which protects the
occupants of the car during a head-on
collision of a medium-high degree.
The system was designed to protect
from injury caused by the body crashing to the steering wheel or the dashboard.

G
4C001-067 ING

Pagina 59
In a collision, an electronic control
unit processes the signals from a deceleration sensor and, where required,
inflates the airbag.
Europe and most other countries
world-wide.
In the event of front collisions at low
speed, the restraining action of the
seat belts is sufficient and the airbag
is not inflated.
The bag inflates instantly and acts
as a soft protective barrier between
the front seat passengers and the
structures in front of them that could
cause injury. The bags deflate immediately afterwards.
For impacts against very deformable
or mobile objects (traffic sign poles,
heaps of gravel or snow, parked vehicles), side impacts, wedging under
other vehicles or barriers (e.g. under
a truck or guard rail), the airbag is
not necessary and may even be undesirable.
A passenger not wearing the seat
belt may crash into the bag before it
is fully inflated. In this case, the protection is considerably decreased.
The airbag, as a consequence, is not
a replacement for the use of seat belts
but rather a complement. We recommend that seat belts are worn at all
times as prescribed by legislation in
P4C00348
The fact that the airbag is not triggered in these situations, this does not
signify a malfunction.
PASSENGER’S FRONT AIRBAG
The passenger side airbag was designed and calibrated to protect a person wearing seat belts.
When fully inflated, the bag will fill
most of the space between the dashboard and the passenger.
SEVERE DANGER:
if the car has a passenger airbag, do
not place the child seat on the
front seat.
Manual deactivation
The passenger side airbag can be deactivated if it is absolutely necessary
to carry a child in the front passenger
seat.
Turn the specific switch A (fig. 86)
inside the glove compartment on the
left-hand side with the ignition key.

The switch has two positions:
SIDE BAGS (fig. 87)
1) Passenger side airbag on: (position ON ) instrument panel warning light off. Do not carry children on
the front seat.
The purpose of the side bag fitted in
the seat is to protect the front seat
passengers in the event of a side impacts of medium to high degree.
2) Passenger side airbag off: (position OFF
) instrument panel warning light on. A child can be carried on
the front seat with a suitable restraint
system.
The device consists of a bag housed
in the front seat backs which immediately inflates. This solution ensures
that the bag is in an optimal position
regardless of the seat position.
The instrument panel warning light
will stay on until the passenger
side airbag is reactivated.
In the event of a side impact, the
control unit processes the signals from
a deceleration sensor and fires the side
bag.
The airbag, as a consequence, is not
a replacement for the use of seat belts
but rather a complement. We recommend that seat belts are worn at all
times as prescribed by legislation in
Europe and most other countries
world-wide.
P4C00379
The bag inflates instantly and acts
as a soft protective barrier between
the front seat passengers and car
door. The bags deflates immediately
afterwards.
In the event of side collisions at low
speed, the restraining action of the
seat belts is sufficient and the airbag
is not inflated. Also in this case, seat
belts should be worn at all times.
They ensure the passenger is correctly
positioned in the seat in the event of
side crash and prevent the passenger
from being projected from the vehicle
in the event of a very violent crash.

GENERAL WARNINGS
The front and/or side airbags
(where fitted) can be triggered if
the car is subjected to considerable crashes or involved in an accident concerning the underbody
areas, such as a violent impact
against steps, kerbs or projecting
objects fastened to the ground,
falling into large holes or dips in
the road surface.
When the airbag is fired it emits
heat and a small amount of powder. This is not harmful and does
not indicate the beginning of a fire.
Furthermore, the surface of the inflated bag and in the passenger
compartment may be covered with
a powdery residues. This powder
may irritate skin and eyes. In the
event of exposure, wash with mild
soap and water.
Go to a LANCIA Dealership as
soon as possible if the warning
light û comes on when travelling
(to signal a fault) to have the problem repaired.
The airbag system is guaranteed
for ten years. Contact a LANCIA
Dealership as the expiry data approaches.
After an accident which triggered
the airbags, go to a LANCIA Dealership to have the entire safety system, the electronic control unit, the
seat belts and the pretensioners replaced. The Dealership will also
check the intactness of the electrical system.
Any diagnostic, repair or replacement operations concerning
the airbag system must exclusively
be carried out at a LANCIA Dealership.
If you are having the car
scrapped, have the airbag system
deactivated at a LANCIA Dealership first.
The pretensioners (if electronically controlled), front airbags and
side airbags are activated by the
electronic control unit according
to the type of impact. Consequently, missed activation of one
or more system components does
not indicate a fault in the system.
The instrument panel
warning light û should
come on when the ignition
key is turned to MAR and go out
after approximately four seconds.
Immediately contact a LANCIA
Dealership if the warning light either does not come on or stays on
or comes on when travelling.
If the car changes hands, the new
owner must be made aware of the
indications given above and be
given this Owner Handbook.

other four seconds when the ignition key is turned to MAR to remind the driver than the passenger’s front and side airbags (where
fitted) will be fired in the event of
a crash. The warning light should
go out immediately afterwards.
The airbag does not replace seat belts but rather
increases their effectiveness. Furthermore, the airbag is
not fired in the event of low speed
front collisions, side collisions,
rear-end shunts and roll-overs. In
these cases, the passengers are
only protected by the seat belts
which for this reason must always
be fastened.
The correct operation of
front airbags, side airbags
and pretensioners is ensured only if the car is not overloaded. Do not exceed the maximum
permitted loads (see “Weights” in
“Technical specifications”).
Do not apply stickers or
other objects to the steering
wheel or to the dashboard
on the passenger’s side. Do not
travel with objects on your lap or in
front of you nor with a pipe, pencil
or similar between your lips; you
could seriously hurt yourself if the
airbag inflates in a collision.
It is important to remember that the airbag can be
fired even when the engine
is not running and the key is at
MAR if it is hit by another vehicle
travelling at suitable speed. As a
consequence, LANCIA recommends sitting children in their
specific restraint systems on the
back seat, which is the most protected position possible. On the
contrary, the airbags will not be
fired if the car is crashed into
when the key is not inserted or
turned. Consequently, in this case,
the fact that the system is not fired
does not indicate a fault.
Always drive with both
hands on the rim of the
steering wheel so that the
airbag is free to inflate during a
head-on collision, and protect you
from serious injury. Do not drive
with your body bending towards
the steering wheel, but sit in an
upright position with your back
resting against the seat.
If an attempt has been
made to steal the car, or if
it has actually been stolen
or has been vandalised in any way
or subjected to flooding, have the
airbag system checked over at a
LANCIA Dealership.

EOBD SYSTEM
The EOBD (European On Board Diagnosis) system fitted in this car complies with Directive 98/69/CE (EURO
3).
Contact a LANCIA Dealership as soon as possible
if the
warning light either does not come on when the
key is turned to MAR or comes on,
with fixed or flashing light, when
travelling.
This system continuously monitors
the vehicle emission system components. Furthermore, the system warns
the driver of deterioration concerning
the emission system components by
means of the
warning light on the
instrument panel.
The objective is to:
– monitor system efficiency;
– warn when failures can increase
emissions over the threshold established by the European regulations;
– warn of the need to replace deteriorated components.
Furthermore, the system is equipped
with a connector for interfacing with
specific tools used to read the error
codes stored in the control unit memory along with a set of diagnostic and
engine specific parameters.
IMPORTANT After eliminating the
problem, your LANCIA Dealership
will run a bench test to fully check the
system. In some cases, a long road test
may be required.

STARTING
THE ENGINE
It is dangerous to let the
engine run in a garage or
other closed area. The engine consumes oxygen and gives
off carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other poisonous fumes.
The ignition switch fits a safety device. If the engine does not start at the
first attempt, return the ignition key
to STOP before trying to start the engine again.
In a similar way, you will not be able
to turn the key from MAR to AVV
when the engine is running.
PROCEDURE
IMPORTANT Do not press on the
accelerator before the engine is running.
1) Make sure the handbrake is up.
2) Put the gear lever into neutral.
3) Press the clutch pedal down to the
floor.
4) Turn the ignition key to AVV and
let it go the moment the engine starts.
Do not touch the high
voltage cables (spark plug
cables) when the engine is
running.
If the engine does not start at the
first attempt, return the ignition key
to STOP before trying to start the engine again.
If warning light ¢ remains lit together with the warning light
when the ignition key is at MAR,
turn the key to STOP and then to
MAR; if the warning light still remains lit, try with the other keys provided with the car.
If you are still unable to start the engine, follow the emergency startup
procedure (see “Emergency startup”
in the section “In an emergency”) and
go to the nearest LANCIA Dealership immediately.
IMPORTANT Do not leave the ignition key at MAR when the engine is
off.
During the running-in
period do not push the car
up to its highest performance (e.g. sudden accelerations,
very long drives at high speed,
sharp braking etc.)

HOW TO WARM UP
THE ENGINE AFTER
IT HAS JUST STARTED
– Begin to move forward slowly letting the engine turn over at medium
revs. Do not accelerate abruptly.
– Do not push the engine to its limit
for the first few kilometres. You are
recommended to wait until the water
temperature has reached 50°C to
60°C (pointer moves slightly from its
initial position).
EMERGENCY STARTING
If the Lancia CODE system fails to
recognise the code transmitted by the
ignition key (warning lamp ¢ on instrument panel lit with a fixed light),
you can start the engine by following
the emergency procedure using the
code written on the CODE card.
BUMP STARTING
Bump starting by pushing, towing or rolling
downhill must be avoided
at all costs. This way of starting
could cause a rush of fuel into the
catalytic exhaust pipe and damage
it beyond repair.
Remember that as long as
the engine is not running,
the brake booster and
power steering do not work. You
therefore have to use considerably
more effort on both the brake
pedal and the steering wheel.
STOPPING THE ENGINE
Turn the ignition key to STOP while
the engine is idling.
A quick burst on the accelerator before turning off
the engine serves absolutely no practical purpose, and
wastes fuel.
IMPORTANT After a taxing drive it
is better to allow the engine to “catch
its breath” before turning it off by letting it idle to allow the temperature in
the engine compartment to fall.
See the section “In an emergency”.

PARKING
Stop the engine, engage the handbrake and engage a gear (first gear if
the car is faced uphill or reverse if it
is faced downhill). Leave the wheels
steered. Block the wheels with a
wedge or a stone if the car is parked
on a steep slope.
If the car is parked on a steep slope,
block the wheels with a wedge or a
stone.
Do not leave the ignition key at
MAR because it drains the battery.
Always remove the key when you
leave the car even if it is only for a few
moments.
HANDBRAKE
To release the handbrake:
The handbrake lever is situated between the two front seats.
1) Slightly lift the handbrake and
press release button A (fig. 1).
To put the handbrake on, pull it upwards until the vehicle is blocked;
normally four or five clicks are sufficient on flat ground, whereas seven or
eight might be necessary when parking on steep slopes with the vehicle
laden.
2) Keep the button pressed in and
lower the lever. Instrument panel
warning light x will go out.
3) To prevent accidental movement
of the car, when releasing the handbrake, keep the foot brake depressed.
IMPORTANT If this is not the case,
take the car to a LANCIA Dealership to have the handbrake adjusted.
When the ignition key is turned to
MAR and the handbrake pulled up,
the warning lamp x will light up on
the instrument panel.
Do not leave children unsupervised in the car.

GEAR USE
To engage reverse (R), wait for the
car to come to a standstill. From neutral, lift the sliding ring A (fig. 2) under the knob and shift the lever to the
right and backwards at the same
time.
To engage the gears, press down the
clutch and put the gear lever into one
of the positions shown in the diagram
(fig. 2) (the diagram is also on the
gear lever knob).
Do not drive with your
hand resting on the gear
lever. Although the force
you exert by doing this is very
slight, it will, in the long run, wear
out the components inside the
gearbox.
P4C00346
IMPORTANT The reverse gear can
only be engaged when the car is stationary. With the engine running wait
for at least 2 seconds with the clutch
fully down before engaging the reverse gear to avoid grating the gears
and damaging them.
To change gear properly
you must push the clutch
pedal fully down. It is
therefore essential that there is
nothing under the pedals: make
sure mats are lying flat and do not
get in the way of the pedals.

AT THE FILLING
STATION
Never put even the tiniest
amount of leaded fuel in
the tank, even in an emergency. You would damage the catalytic converter beyond repair.
FUEL
Fill petrol engine cars only with unleaded petrol with a minimum octane
number of 95.
ENGINE OIL
Fuel tank capacity: 45 litres including a reserve of 5 - 8 litres.
Check the level: see the “Car maintenance” section.
The distance between the MIN and
MAX marks on the dipstick is equivalent to about one litre of oil.
An inefficient catalytic
converter will allow harmful exhaust fumes to be
emitted and thus contribute to the
pollution of the air.
Use SAE 10W-40 oil for temperatures down to –25°C.

SAFE DRIVING
BEFORE GETTING BEHIND
THE WHEEL
In designing the Lancia Y, we made
every effort to come up with a car
able to provide driver and passengers
with top-class levels of safety. Nevertheless it is always the behaviour of
the person at the wheel that determines road safety.
– Make sure all lights including the
headlights are working properly.
Below you will find some simple tips
to help you travel in safety under different conditions. You will no doubt
be familiar with many of them already but it will be useful to read
them all carefully.
– On long journeys, it is a good idea
to slightly alter the lumber support
and/or seat inclination to vary the
weight on the spine and therefore reduce tiredness and strain.
– Adjust the position of the seats,
steering wheel, driving and door mirrors properly for the best driving position.
– Carefully adjust the head restraints
so the back of the head and not the
nape of the neck is supported.
– Carefully adjust the height of the
seat belts to suit the wearer’s stature
(see the instructions given in the section “Getting to know your car - seat
belts”).
– Make sure that nothing (mats etc.)
get in the way of the pedals.
– Make sure that any child restraint
systems (child seats, carriers, etc.) are
properly fixed to the rear seat. Follow
the indications given in “Transporting children safely” in the section
“Getting to know your car”.
– Make sure that objects are carefully arranged in the boot so they will
not fly forward if you have to brake
sharply.
– Avord placing light-coloured articles or papers on the object tray which
may be reflected on the windscreen.
– Do not eat a heavy meal before
travelling. Light eating will help keep
your reflexes prompt. Above all, do
not have anything alcoholic to drink.
The use of some drugs may affect
your driving, read the relevant instructions sheet carefully.
Remember to periodically check
what is specified in the “Repeated
checks and checks before long trips”
paragraph given in this section.

Consider the space required by extra mats: even
a small problem to the
braking system may indicate additional brake pedal stroke is required with respect to normal.
Water, ice and salt sprinkled on the road deposit
on the brake disc and reduce effectiveness the first time
you brake.
Pay attention when installing additional spoilers, alloy wheel rims and
caps that are not standard. They
could reduce the brake ventilation
and as a consequence, the braking
efficiency if you brake suddenly
and repeatedly, or when driving
downhill.
WHEN TRAVELLING
– The first rule of safe driving is prudence.
– Prudence also means putting yourself into a position where you can predict wrong or imprudent behaviour
from other drivers.
– Stick closely to the rules of the
road in the particular country where
the car is being driven and, above all,
do not exceed speed limits.
– Ensure that, besides yourself, all
the other passengers in the car have
their seat belts fastened, that children
are sitting in the appropriate child
seats and any animals are in special
compartments.
– You should be physically fit and
mentally alert before setting out on
long journeys.
Driving when you are not
mentally alert, drunk, under the influence of drugs
or certain medicines is dangerous
both for you and other road users.
Always fasten both front
and back seat belts including child seat seat belt
if fitted. Travelling with the seat
belts unfastened increases the risk
of injury or death if you are in a
collision.
Do not drive with objects
on the floor in front of the
driver’s seat. Objects
could get stuck under the pedals
making accelerating and braking
impossible.

– Do not drive too many hours at a
time but stop at intervals to stretch
your legs and recover your energies.
– Make sure the air in the car is being changed continuously.
– Never coast downhill (i.e. with the
engine off): if you do, you lose the aid
of engine brake, power brakes and
power steering so that braking and
steering require greater effort.
– Never coast downhill (i.e. with the
engine off): if you do, you lose the aid
of engine braking and power.
DRIVING AT NIGHT
If you are driving at night these are
the main rules to follow:
– Drive especially carefully: it is
harder to drive at night.
– Slow down especially if the road is
not lit.
– At the first signs of sleepiness, stop:
continuing would be a risk for yourself and everybody else. Only start
driving again when you have had
enough rest.
– Keep a greater safety distance
from the cars in front of you than
during daylight hours: it is hard to
judge how fast other cars are going
when all you can see are their lights.
– Make sure the headlight beams are
properly positioned: if they are too
low, they reduce visibility and strain
your eyes. If they are too high they
can dazzle other drivers.
– Only use main-beam headlights
when you are driving outside town
and when you are sure they do not
annoy other drivers.
– Dip your headlights (if on) as soon
as you see cars coming in the other direction and pass them with the headlights dipped.
– Keep all lights clean.
– Be careful of animals crossing the
road when driving in the country.
DRIVING IN THE RAIN
Rain and wet road surfaces spell
danger.
All manoeuvres are more difficult on
a wet road because the grip of the
wheels on the tarmac is greatly reduced. This is why braking distances
are much longer and roadholding is
lower.
77
G
4C068-089 ING
11-03-2008
11:59
Pagina 78
Here is some advice for driving in
the rain:
– Reduce speed and maintain a
greater safety distance from the cars
in front.
– If it is raining particularly heavily,
visibility is also reduced. In these
cases, switch on the dipped headlights
even if it is still daylight so you can be
seen more easily.
– Do not drive through puddles at
speed and hold on tightly to the
wheel: a puddle taken at high speed
might cause you to lose control of the
car (“aquaplaning”).
– Move the ventilation controls to
the position for demisting the windows (see the section “Getting to
know your car”), to avoid visibility
problems.
– Periodically check the condition of
the windscreen wiper blades.
DRIVING IN FOG
– If the fog is thick, do not start out
on a journey unless you absolutely
have to.
If driving in mist, blanket fog or
when there is the danger of fog
patches:
– Keep your speed down.
– Turn on the dipped headlights,
rear foglights and front foglights, if
fitted, even during the day. Do not
drive with your headlights at fullbeam.
– If you are forced to stop your car
(breakdown, limited visibility etc.)
try to stop off the road. Turn on the
hazard lights and, if possible, the
dipped headlights. Rhythmically
sound the horn if you realise another
car is coming.
IMPORTANT On stretches of road
with good visibility, switch off your
rear foglights; the brightness of these
lights could annoy the people travelling in the cars behind.
– Remember that fog also means the
tarmac is wet and therefore manoeuvres of all kinds are more difficult and
stopping distances are longer.
– Keep a good distance from the cars
in front of you.
– As far as possible, avoid spurts of
speed or sudden deceleration.
– Do not overtake other vehicles if
you can help it.

DRIVING IN THE MOUNTAINS
DRIVING ON SNOW OR ICE
– When driving downhill use the engine braking effect by engaging a low
gear so as not to overheat the brakes.
Here are some tips for driving in
these conditions.
– Under no circumstances should
you drive downhill with the engine off
or with the car in neutral, let alone
with the ignition key out.
– Drive at a moderate speed without
cutting corners.
– Remember that overtaking while
going uphill is slower and therefore requires more free road. If you are being
overtaken while driving uphill, make
it easier for the other vehicle to pass.
– Before starting off, check that the
windscreen wiper blades are not stuck
to the windscreen.
– Remove any snow from the climate
control system air intake.
– Keep your speed down.
– Use chains or snow tyres if the
roads are covered in snow, see the respective paragraphs in this chapter.
– Do not keep the engine running for
long periods in deep snow as the snow
could push exhaust gases into the passenger compartment.
– Mainly use the braking effect of
the engine and under all circumstances avoid braking sharply.
– When braking in a car not fitted
with ABS, avoid the wheels locking by
varying the pressure you exert on the
brake pedal.
– Do not accelerate suddenly and
avoid swerving.
– In the winter, even apparently dry
roads may have icy patches. Be careful therefore when driving over
stretches that do not get much exposure to the sun or that are lined by
trees and rocks, where ice might not
have melted.
– Keep a good distance from the vehicles in front.

DRIVING WITH ABS
The car can be fitted with a wheel
anti-locking system (ABS) and with
electronic brake correction (EBD) system.
ABS is a braking system that essentially offers two advantages:
1) It prevents wheel locking and
consequent skidding in emergency
stops, particularly when the road does
not offer much grip.
2) It makes it possible to brake and
steer at the same time so you can
avoid unexpected obstacles and direct
the car where you want while braking. The extent to which this can be
done will depend on the physical limits of the tyre’s total grip.
To get the most out of ABS:
– During emergency stops or when
grip conditions are poor, you will feel
a slight pulsation on the brake pedal.
This is the sign that the ABS is working. Do not release the brake pedal
but continue to press so as not to interrupt the braking action.
– ABS prevents the wheels from
locking, but it does not increase actual grip conditions between tyre and
road. Therefore, even if your car is fitted with ABS, respect the safety distance from the car in front of you and
keep your speed down when driving
into bends.
ABS serves to increase the controllability of the car, not to enable you to
go faster.
If warning light >
switches on when the engine is running, this usually indicates an ABS fault. In such
cases the braking system is still efficient, although the anti-locking
device does not function. The EBD
system may also be less efficient.
Go to a LANCIA Dealership immediately, taking care not to brake
suddenly, and have the system
checked.
The car is fitted with an
electronic brake corrector
(EBD). If warning lights >
and x light up simultaneously
when the engine is running, this
indicates an EBD fault. This
means that violent braking could
cause early locking of the rear
wheels causing the car to skid.
Drive the car extremely carefully
to the nearest LANCIA Dealership
to have the system checked.

CONTAINING
RUNNING COSTS
AND POLLUTION
Some suggestions which may help
you to keep the running costs of your
car down and lower the amount of
toxic emissions released into the atmosphere are given below.
GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS
Car maintenance
The overall state of the car is an important factor which has a marked influence over fuel consumption and
driving comfort and on the life span
of your car. For this reason care
should be taken to maintain your vehicle by carrying out the necessary
checks and regulations in accordance
with the specifications given in the
Servize Schedule (see spark plugs,
idle, air filters, timing sections).
Tyres
Electrical devices
Tyres should be checked at least
every four weeks: if the pressure is too
low fuel consumption increases as the
resistance to the rolling movement of
the tyre is greater. In this state, tyre
wear is increased and car handling
suffers which will affect safety.
Use the electrical devices for the necessary time only. The heated rear window, supplementary lights, windscreen wipers, heating system blower
require large amounts of energy and,
increasing the request for power also
increases fuel consumption (up to
+25% when driving in built-up areas).
Unnecessary loads
Do not travel with too much luggage
stowed in the boot. The weight of the
car (especially when driving in town)
and its trim greatly affects consumption and stability.
Roof/ski racks
Remove roof or ski racks from the
roof of the car as soon as they are no
longer needed. These accessories reduce the aerodynamic penetration of
the car and will increase consumption. When transporting particularly
large objects, use a trailer where possible.
Air conditioner
The air conditioner is an additional
load which greatly affects the engine
leading to higher consumption (on average up to +20%). When the temperature outside the car permits it,
use the air vents where possible.
Spoilers
The use of aerodynamic optional extras which are not certified for specific
use on the car, may reduce the aerodynamic penetration of the car and
increase consumption.

STYLE OF DRIVING
Starting
Do not warm the engine when the
car is stationery or at high or low revs:
in this way the engine will warm up
gradually increasing consumption and
emissions. You should drive off slowly
straight away avoiding high revs so
that the engine will warm up more
quickly.
Unnecessary actions
Avoid revving the engine when
stopped at traffic lights or before
switching off the engine and avoid
doubling the clutch as these actions
have no purpose on modern vehicles
and serve only to increase consumption and pollution.
Gear selection
Acceleration
As soon as the traffic and road conditions allow it, shift to a higher gear.
Using a lower gear to liven up acceleration greatly increases consumption.
In the same way, improper use of the
higher gears will increase consumption, emissions and wear and tear on
the engine.
Accelerating violently increasing the
revs will greatly affect consumption
and emissions: acceleration should be
gradual and not exceed the maximum
torque.
Top speeds
Fuel consumption increases considerably as speed increases. For example, when accelerating from 90 to
120 kph, fuel consumption increases
by about +30%. Your speed should
be kept as even as possible and superfluous braking and acceleration
avoided as this increases both consumption and emissions. A “soft” way
of driving should be adopted by attempting to anticipate manoeuvres to
avoid imminent danger and to keep a
safe distance from the vehicle in front
in order to avoid braking sharply.
CONDITIONS OF USE
Cold starting
Frequent cold starting will not enable the engine to reach optimal running temperature. It follows therefore
that consumption will be higher (from
+15% to +30% in built-up areas) as
will the production of toxic emissions.
82
G
4C068-089 ING
11-03-2008
11:59
Pagina 83
Traffic and road conditions
Heavy traffic and higher consumption are synonymous; for example,
when driving slowly with frequent use
of the lower gears or in large towns
where there are numerous traffic
lights.
Winding roads, mountain roads and
bumpy roads also have a negative effect on consumption.
Enforced halts
During prolonged hold-ups (traffic
lights, level crossings) the engine
should be switched off.
CHEAP RUNNING
THAT RESPECTS
THE ENVIRONMENT
Environmental protection has been
one of the guiding principles in the
production of the Lancia Y. It is no accident that its pollution control equipment is much more effective than that
required by current legislation.
Nonetheless, the environment cannot get by without a concerted effort
from everyone.
By following a few simple rules you
can avoid harming the environment
and often cut down fuel consumption
at the same time.
On this subject, a few useful tips
have been given below to supplement
those marked by symbol # at various
points of the handbook.
LOOKING AFTER EMISSION
CONTROL DEVICES
The correct use of pollution control
devices not only ensures respect for
the environment but also has an effect
on the car’s performance. Keeping
these devices in good condition is
therefore a fundamental rule for driving that is easy on your pocket and
on the environment too.
The first step to take is to follow the
Service Schedule to the letter.
Use only unleaded petrol.
If you have trouble starting, do not
keep turning the ignition key for long
periods. Be especially careful to avoid
bump starting the car by pushing,
towing or rolling down hill: these are
all manoeuvres that can damage the
catalytic exhaust.
You are asked to read both the former and latter carefully.
83
G
4C068-089 ING
11-03-2008
11:59
Pagina 84
For emergency starts use only an
auxiliary battery.
If the engine begins to “loose its
smoothness” when travelling, continue your journey but reduce the demands you are making on the engine
and have the car seen to at a LANCIA
Dealership as soon as you can.
When the instrument panel fuel reserve warning light comes on, fill up
as soon as possible. A low level of fuel
can cause an uneven supply of fuel to
the engine with the inevitable increase
in the temperature of the exhaust gas
and serious damage to the catalytic
converter.
Never run the engine with one or
more spark plugs disconnected, even
for testing purposes.
Do not warm up the engine by letting it idle for a while before moving
off unless the outside temperature is
very low and, even in this case, only
do so for less than thirty seconds.
Do not install other heat shields and
do not remove those already fitted to
the catalytic converter and exhaust
pipe.
Do not allow anything to be sprayed
onto the catalytic converter, Lambda
sensor and exhaust pipe.
When functioning normally the catalytic converter reaches high temperatures. For this reason do not
park the car over inflammable
material (grass, dry leaves, pine
needles etc.): fire hazard.
TOWING A TRAILER
IMPORTANT The car must be fitted with a homologated tow hitch and
suitable electrical system for towing a
caravan or trailer.
Have the tow hitch fitted by an expert who will issue specific documentation for use on roads.
Fit special and/or additional
rearview mirrors in accordance with
the highway code.
Remember that towing a trailer
makes it harder for the car to climb
the maximum gradients specified.
Engage a low gear when driving
downhill rather than constantly braking.
Failure to heed these precautions could cause a
fire.
84
G
4C068-089 ING
11-03-2008
11:59
Pagina 85
The weight the trailer exerts on the
car’s tow hitch coupling reduces the
car’s carrying capacity by the same
amount.
In order to be sure you are not exceeding the maximum towing weight
(given on the car’s registration papers), you have to take into account
the trailer’s weight fully laden including the accessories and personal
luggage.
Do not exceed the speed limits for
towing a trailer in the country you are
driving in. In any case, do not exceed
the top speed of 100 km/h.
The ABS system with
which the car may be fitted
does not control the braking system of a trailer. Special care
must therefore be taken on slippery surfaces.
Under no circumstances
modify the car’s braking
system for trailer braking
control. The trailer’s braking system must be completely independent of the car’s hydraulic system.
SNOW CHAINS
The use of snow chains is regulated
by the legislation in force in the country the car is driven in.
The chains may only be applied to
the drive wheel tyres (front wheels).
Use only low profile chains (maximum height off the tyre: 12 mm).
Check the tautness of the chains after driving some twenty to thirty metres.
IMPORTANT As the spare wheel is
small (space-saver), it is not possible
to fit snow chains to it. If a front tyre
is punctured, first exchange a rear
wheel with the spare tyre and then
change the flat tyre with the rear wheel
thus removed. This way there will be
two ordinary wheels at the front and
the snow chains can be fitted.
Remember that the wheels should
always be exchanged on the same side
of the vehicle; never change wheels
over from one side of the car to the
other.

#
Keep you speed
down when snow
chains are fitted.
Avoid potholes, steps and kerbs.
Do not drive for long distances on
roads free from snow as not to
damage the car and the road surface.
The 1.2 16V N
M
red car is
fitted with 195/50 R15 82H
tyres; snow chains cannot
be fitted on these tyres. Alternatively, have 185/60 R14 82H tyres
fitted on which snow chains can be
mounted. If it is desired to use
snow tyres see the section “Snow
tyres”.
SNOW TYRES
These are tyres that have been
specifically designed for driving on
snow and ice, to be fitted in place of
the car’s standard tyres.
Only replace with the type of tyre indicated in the table below:
Standard tyre
Snow tyre
165/65 R14 78T
165/65 R14 78Q (M+S) (*)
185/60 R14 82H

185/60 R14 82T
195/50 R15 82H
195/50 R15 82H
LANCIA Dealership is pleased to
offer advice concerning the choice of
the most suitable tyre according to the
use required by the Customer.
Refer to the pressure of standard
tyres of the same size to find the correct inflation pressure: see “Tyre pressure” in the “Technical Specifications” section.
The winter characteristics for snow
tyres are considerably less when the
tread is less than 4 mm. In such cases
it is safer to replace them.
The snow tyre characteristics are
such that, with normal environmental conditions or on long journeys on
the motorway their performance is
lower than that of standard tyres.
(*) See the warnings concerning maximum speed on the next page.

Pagina 87
Therefore they should only be used
for the purpose for which they have
been homologated (“Q” indicates that
the tyre is designed for a speed of less
than 160 km/h).
IMPORTANT When using snow
tyres with a maximum speed index
that is less than the capacity of the car
(increased by 5%), place in the passenger compartment, well in sight, a
warning that indicates the maximum
speed permitted by the snow tyres (in
accordance with the EC Directive).
Fit four identical tyres (same make
and tread) on the wheels to ensure
safety when driving and when braking as well as easy handling.
Do not reverse the direction of rotation of the tyres.
The maximum speed of
snow tyres with a “Q” indication must never exceed 160 km/h and in any case
must always observe the regulations of the Highway Code.
STORING THE CAR
Do the following if the car is not to
be used for more than a month:
– Park the car in covered, dry and if
possible well-ventilated premises.
– Engage a gear.
– Remove the cables from the battery terminals (first remove the cable
to the negative terminal) and check
the battery charge. This check should
be carried out once every three
months while the car is in storage.
Recharge the battery if the no-load
voltage is less than 12.5V.
– Make sure the handbrake is not
engaged.
– Clean and protect the painted
parts using protective wax.

– Clean and protect the shiny metal
parts using special compounds available on the market.
– Sprinkle talcum powder on the
rubber windscreen and rear window
wiper blades and lift them off the
glass.
– Slightly open the windows.
– Cover the car with a cloth or perforated plastic sheet. Do not use
sheets of imperforated plastic as they
do not allow moisture on the car body
to evaporate.
– Inflate the tyres to 0.5 bar above
the normal specified pressure and
check it at intervals.

IMPORTANT The use of cellular
phones, CB transmitters or other similar devices inside the passenger compartment (without an aerial) produces
RF electromagnetic fields which, amplified by the resonance effects inside
the passenger compartment may
cause electrical systems equipping the
vehicle (engine control unit,
ABS/EBD control unit etc.) to malfunction. This could compromise vehicle safety as well as constituting a
potential hazard for the occupants.
The transmission and reception efficiency of this equipment may also be
affected by the shielding effect of the
car’s body.
USEFUL
ACCESSORIES
The parts described and illustrated
are available from Lineaccessori

Any passengers must get out of
the car, especially if it is heavily
laden, and keep out of the way of
traffic while the wheel is being
changed.
If the ground is sloping or
bumpy, place wedges or other suitable material under the wheels to
stop the car from moving.
The space-saver spare
wheel is specific to the vehicle; do not use it on other
models and do not use spare
wheels designed for other models
on your car.
If you change the type of wheels
fitted (alloy rims instead of steel
ones), you must also change the securing bolts for others of suitable
dimensions.
The space-saver spare wheel
must only be used in the event of
an emergency, and then only for as
little as possible and at no more
than 80 km/h. Driving will feel different with the space-saver spare
wheel fitted. Avoid sharp braking
and acceleration, sudden swerving
and fast cornering.
The space-saver spare wheel has
a life-span of about 3000 km after
which the tyre should be replaced
with another of the same type.

Never fit a standard tyre to a rim
to be used for the space-saver
spare wheel. Have the punctured
tyre repaired and fitted back on as
soon as possible.
No more than one space-saver
spare wheel must be used at the
same time.
Do not grease the bolt threads before fitting them, they could unscrew themselves.
The jack must only be used to
change wheels on the vehicle with
which it is supplied or on vehicles
of the same model. All other uses,
for example raising other vehicles,
must be excluded. Under no circumstances use the jack to carry
out repairs under the vehicle.
If the jack is not used correctly,
the raised vehicle may fall.
Never tamper with the inflation
valve.
Do not insert any type of tool between the rim and the tyre.
Periodically check the tyre pressure including that of the sparesaver spare wheel as per the values given in “Technical Specifications”.
P4C00400
Do not use the jack to lift weights
above that indicated on the label
attached to the jack itself.
Never start the engine while the
car is raised by the jack. If travelling with a trailer, detach the
trailer before raising the car.
Snow chains cannot be fitted to
the spare wheel, consequently if a
front tyre is punctured (front drive)
and snow chains need to be fitted,
a standard wheel must be removed
from the back axle and the spacesaver spare wheel fitted in its
place. In this way there will be two
standard wheels on the front and
the snow chains can be fitted.
Incorrect fitting of the wheel hub
could result in the hub coming off

– Take out the tools and remove the
space-saver spare wheel.
1) Remove the wheel cup with a
screwdriver (LS versions).
IMPORTANT The indications
which follow must be complied with
to ensure that the jack and the spare
wheel are used correctly.
2) Loosen the wheel bolts of the
wheel to be changed by about 1 turn.
6) Turn the handle C to open the
jack until the jack groove is correctly
inserted in the sidemember ribbing.
7) Warn any other people present
that the car is going to be lifted. Other
people must stay clear and not touch
the car until it is back on the ground.
3) If the car is fitted with alloy rims,
shake the car to facilitate removing
the rim from the wheel hub.
It must be remembered that:
– the jack weighs 1.85 kg;
– the jack does not require adjustments;
– the jack cannot be repaired. If it
breaks, it must be changed with another new jack;
4) Turn the jack handle C so that
the jack opens partially.
8) Turn jack handle and lift the vehicle until the tyre is a few centimetres above the ground.
5) Place the jack at the point marked
by a notch H (fig. 3) near the wheel to
be changed at approximately 10 cm
towards the centre of the car (fig. 3).
The jack handle must turn freely,
without touching the ground to avoid
scraping your hand.
Do not touch moving parts of the
jack (screws and joints) as they can
cause injuries. If you dirty your hands
with grease, clean them carefully.
– only the jack handle described in
this chapter can be fitted onto the
jack.

The spare wheel is narrower than
normal wheels and must only be used
to travel to the nearest service station
so that the original tyre can be repaired.
10) Ensure that the support surfaces
of the spare wheel are clean and free
from impurities which could successively cause the wheel bolts to loosen.
Mount the spare wheel so that the
holes I (fig. 4) coincide with the relative pins L.
Depending on whether the type of
wheels normally fitted to the car are
alloy or steel, the spare wheel (which
always has a steel rim) will differ in
construction so that it is compatible
with the wheel bolts which are specific
to each type of wheel.
IMPORTANT Do not fit the wheel
cover on the space-saver spare wheel.
11) Tighten the 4 securing bolts.
12) Turn the jack handle to lower
the car, and remove the jack.
REFITTING THE STANDARD
WHEEL
1) Following the above procedure,
raise the car and take off the spacesaver wheel.
Modifications or repairs
to the electrical system
carried out incorrectly and
without bearing the features of the
system in mind can cause malfunctions with the risk of fire.
If you wish to change the type of
wheel (alloy instead of steel and viceversa) the wheel bolts and a new
spare wheel must be employed.
13) Tighten up the wheel bolts completely in criss-cross fashion following
the order shown in (fig. 5).
14) Put the punctured wheel in the
spare wheel compartment.
4) Fit the wheel cover (1.2
version), making sure that slit C (fig. 6)
corresponds with the inflation valve.

7) Lower the car and remove the jack.
– Refit the tools you used on the support.
8) Tighten up the bolts completely in the order given previously in
(fig. 5).
– Arrange the support and close the
fastener A (fig. 8).
9) Fit the wheel cover (LS version)
making sure that the inflation valve
seat is positioned correctly; press the
cover with the palm of your hands (do
not bang) against the rim shoulder
and ensure that all the retaining flaps
are inserted into the rim.
When you have finished:
IMPORTANT Check the inflation
pressure of the tyres and the spare
wheel regularly.
IMPORTANT If the type of wheel is
to be changed (alloy wheels in place
of steel wheels and vice-versa) all the
wheel bolts must be replaced with
others of a suitable length and a specific spare wheel employed with different construction characteristics.
The original wheel bolts though,
should be kept in case you wish to
change back to the original wheels at
a later date.
To unscrew/screw the inflation valve
cap, use extension F (fig. 2).

GENERAL
P4C00124
The fuse is an element for protecting
the electrical system. It will blow (that
it will break) in the event of a failure
or incorrect interventions on the electrical system.
Before replacing a fuse,
make sure the key has
been taken out from the ignition and that all users are
switched off or deactivated.
If an electrical device is not working,
check whether the respective fuse is
blown. The conductor should not be
broken. If it is, replace it with another
with the same amperage (same
colour) (fig. 29).
Never replace a broken
fuse with anything other
than a new fuse. Always
use an undamaged fuse of the
same colour (same value).
A - Intact fuse.
B - Fuse with broken filament.
Use the tongs C (fig. 29-32) to remove the fuse to be replaced. One set
of tongs is to be found in the main
fuse box, while the other is in the engine compartment fuse box.

IF THE BATTERY
IS FLAT
First of all, read the “Car maintenance” section for the steps to be
taken to avoid the battery running
down and to ensure it has a long life.
RECHARGING THE BATTERY
The liquid in the battery
is poisonous and corrosive.
Do not let it touch the skin
or eyes. Recharging the battery
should be done in a well-ventilated area and away from naked
flames or possible sources of
sparks: explosion and fire risk.
You are recommended to recharge
the battery slowly for a period of approximately 24 hours at a very low
amperage.
Extensive charging could damage
the battery.
Proceed as follows:
JUMP STARTING
See “Jump starting” in this section.
1) Disconnect the electrical system
terminals from the battery posts.
Never try to charge a
frozen battery: first let it
thaw out, otherwise it
could explode.
If the battery has frozen, check
that the internal elements are not
broken (risk of short circuit) and
that the casing is not cracked
causing the acid to leak out. This
acid is poisonous and corrosive.
2) Connect the charger cables to the
battery terminals.
3) Turn on the charger.
4) When you have finished, turn the
charger off before disconnecting the
battery.
Under no circumstances
should a battery charger
be used to start the engine:
it could damage the electronic systems and in particular the control
units governing ignition and fuel
feed.
5) Reconnect the terminals to the
battery posts. Make sure the polarity
is correct (connect the negative post
last).

WITH THE JACK
If the jack is not used
correctly, the raised vehicle may fall. Do not use the
jack to lift weights above that indicated on the label attached to the
jack itself.
WITH A SHOP JACK
Front end
The car may only be raised by placing the jack arm under the transaxle,
with a block of wood or rubber as illustrated in (fig. 38).
See “If a tyre is punctured”, in this
section.
It must be remembered that:
– the jack does not require adjustments;
– the jack cannot be repaired. If it
breaks, it must be changed with another new jack;
– only the jack handle described in
the chapter “If a tyre is punctured”
can be fitted onto the jack.
P4C00393
The jack should only be
used to change a wheel on
the vehicle with which it is
supplied or on vehicles of the same
model. All other uses, for example
raising other vehicles, must be excluded. Under no circumstances
use the jack to carry out repairs
under the vehicle.

While the car is being
towed with the engine off,
remember that the brake
pedal and steering will require
more effort as you no longer have
the benefit of the brake booster
and power steering. Do not use
flexible cables to tow. Avoid jerking. Whilst towing, ensure that the
coupling to the car does not damage the surrounding components.
IF AN ACCIDENT
OCCURS
Do not extract the ignition key during towing;
leave it at MAR, to prevent
the steering lock engaging and,
provided the electrical system is
not damaged, keep the brake lights
and direction indicators working.
When the ignition key is removed, the steering lock will cut in
thus preventing the steering wheel
from being turned.
– It is important to keep calm.
– If you are not directly involved,
stop at least ten metres away from the
accident.
– If you are on a motorway do not
obstruct the emergency lane with your
car.
– Turn off the engine and turn on
the hazard lights.
– At night, illuminate the scene of
the accident with your headlights.
– Act carefully, you must not risk
being run over.
– Mark the accident by putting the
red triangle at the regulatory distance
from the car where it can be clearly
seen.
– If the doors are jammed, do not try
to leave the car by breaking the glass
of the windscreen as the glass is stratified. Side windows and the rear window can be broken more easily.

– Call the emergency services making the information you give as accurate as you can. On the motorway use
the special column-mounted emergency phones.
– Remove the ignition keys of the vehicles involved.
– If you can smell petrol or other
chemicals, do not smoke and make
sure all cigarettes are extinguished.
– Use a fire extinguisher, blanket,
sand or earth to put out fires no matter how small they are. Never use
water.
– In pile-ups on the motorway, particularly when the visibility is bad,
there is a high risk of other vehicles
running into those already immobile.
Get out of the car immediately and
take refuge behind the guard rail.
IF ANYONE IS INJURED
FIRST-AID KIT
– Never leave the injured person
alone. The obligation to provide assistance exists even for those not directly involved in the accident.
The first-aid kit must at least contain (fig. 45):
– sterile gauze for covering and
cleansing wounds
– Do not congregate around the injured person.
– bandages of different widths
– antiseptic plasters of different sizes
– Reassure the injured person that
help is on its way and will arrive soon.
Stay close by to calm him/her down
in case of panic.
– a roll of plaster
– a packet of cotton wool
– Unfasten or cut seat belts holding
injured parties.
– a bottle of disinfectant
– Do not give an injured person anything to drink.
– a pair of scissors with rounded tips
– Never move an injured person except in the following cases.
– two haemostatic loops.
– a packet of paper handkerchiefs
– a pair of pincers
– Pull the injured person from the
car only if it risks catching fire, it is
sinking in water or is likely to fall over
a cliff or similar. Do not pull his/her
arms or legs, never bend the head
and, as far as possible, keep the body
horizontal.

CAR MAINTENANCE
The Lancia Y is brand new throughout, even in
its servicing schedule. Its design and manufacturing process have made the traditional check at
1,500 kilometres unnecessary, which means its
first service schedule coupon is to be used at
20,000 kilometres. Your car, however, still requires a certain amount of care and attention e.g.
the various fluid/liquid levels and tyre pressure
must be systematically checked and topped up if
necessary.
You should nonetheless bear in mind that proper
car maintenance is certainly the best way to keep
your car in tip-top condition for years to come and
safeguard its safety features, its environmentallyfriendly nature and its cheap running costs.
Also remember that the following servicing regulations marked with the symbol ∑ are essential

SCHEDULED
SERVICING
Correct maintenance of the car is essential for ensuring it stays in tip-top
condition for a long time to come.
This is why LANCIA has programmed a number of service checks
and operations every 20,000 kilometres.
It is however important to remember that Scheduled Servicing is not all
your car requires. Regular checks also in the initial period before the
20 thousand kilometre coupon and
later between coupons - ordinary care
is required, such as checking fluid levels and topping up, checking tyre inflation pressure, etc.
IMPORTANT The Manufacturer requires the Service Schedule couponrelated checks to be carried out. Failure to do so could result in the warranty being cancelled.
IMPORTANT You are recommended to get in touch with a LANCIA Dealership immediately if any
small running problems crop up,
without waiting for the next coupon.
Scheduled Servicing is performed at
all LANCIA Dealerships and there is
a set time scale for such operations.
If it is seen that further replacements
or repairs are necessary in addition to
the work being carried out, these will
only be done after the customer has
given his/her consent.

IMPORTANT - Engine oil
IMPORTANT - Pollen filter
IMPORTANT - Battery
Change the engine oil more frequently than indicated in the Service
Schedule, if the car is normally driven
in one of the following particularly severe conditions:
If the car is often used in dusty or
highly polluted areas, you should
change the pollen filtering element
more frequently, especially if you notice that the amount of air entering
the passenger compartment is reduced.
You should check the battery charge
preferably at the beginning of the
winter to avoid the possibility of the
electrolyte freezing up.
– towing a trailer or caravan
– on dusty roads
– short, repetitive trips (less than 7
or 8 kilometres) in outside temperatures below zero
– engines that are frequently left to
idle or drive slowly over long distances.
IMPORTANT - Air cleaner
IMPORTANT - Remote control
If the LED on the remote control
unit flashes only once when you press
the remote control button, you need
to replace the batteries.
This check should be performed
more frequently if the car is mainly
used for short trips, or if it is fitted
with accessories that absorb energy
even when the ignition key is removed, especially if they are aftermarket accessories.
You should check the battery fluid
(electrolyte) level more frequently
than shown in the Service Schedule
(see “Car maintenance”) if the car is
used in hot climates or particularly
demanding conditions.
Change the air cleaner more often
than indicated in the Service Schedule if you use the car on dusty roads.
If you are in doubt about how often
the engine oil or the air cleaner should
be changed in relation to how you use
the car, contact a LANCIA Dealership.

Car maintenance should
be entrusted to a LANCIA
Dealership. For interventions of routine maintenance and
small repairs you wish to carry out
yourself, make sure you always
have the proper equipment, genuine LANCIA spare parts and the
necessary liquids; do not carry out
servicing operations if you have no
experience.
Pay attention when topping up not to confuse the
different types of fluid:
they are all incompatible with
each other and could seriously
damage the car.
If the car is frequently
used with a trailer, maintenance should be carried
out more frequently.
Scarves, ties and loose
garments can get caught in
moving parts.
The jack supplied with
the car is only to be used
when changing a wheel.
For other operations that require
the car to be lifted, special methods are to be used. It is therefore
recommended to have them performed by a LANCIA Dealership.
Never smoke while working on the engine compartment: gas or inflammable
vapours could be present, causing
a risk of fire.

ENGINE OIL (fig.s 1, 2)
Check the oil level a few minutes
(approx. 5) after the engine has
stopped with the car parked on level
ground.
The oil level must be between the
MIN and MAX marks on the dipstick.
The space between MIN and MAX
corresponds to approximately one
litre of oil.
When the engine is hot,
operate very carefully inside the engine compartment: danger of burns. Remember
that, when the engine is hot, the
electric fan could start operating:
danger of injuries.
Do not add oil with different specifications from
the oil already in the engine.
If the oil level is near or even below
the MIN mark, pour in oil through
the filler hole until it reaches the MAX
mark.
The oil level must never exceed the
MAX mark.
IMPORTANT If following a regular
check the oil level is over the MAX
line, go to a LANCIA Dealership to
have the correct level restored.
ENGINE OIL CONSUMPTION
During the beginning of the car’s life
the engine is be tuned in. Engine oil
consumption can only be considered
stabilised after the first 5,000 - 6,000
km.
IMPORTANT Oil consumption depends on the driving style and the
conditions of use.
IMPORTANT After adding or
changing the oil, let the engine turn
over for a few seconds and wait a few
minutes after turning it off before you
check the level.
Used engine oil and replaced oil filters contain
substances that can harm
the environment. We recommend
you have the car seen to at a LANCIA Dealership for the oil and filter change. It is suitably equipped
for disposing of used oil and filters
in an environmentally-friendly
way that complies with the law.

ENGINE COOLANT SYSTEM
(fig.s 1, 2)
Do not take the cap of the
reservoir off when the engine is very hot as you run
the risk of scalding yourself.
IMPORTANT The cooling system is
pressurised. If the plug must be replaced, replace it only with a genuine
spare part or system efficiency may be
impaired.
The coolant level must be checked
while the engine is cold and must be
between the MIN and MAX marks on
the reservoir.
If there is not enough coolant, pour
a 50% mixture of distilled water and
FL Group PARAFLU 11 liquid slowly
through the filler hole 5 in the reservoir, until the level is near the MAX
mark.
A 50-50 mixture of PARAFLU 11
and distilled water gives freeze protection to –35 °C.
WINDSCREEN/REAR WINDOW
WASHER LIQUID (fig.s 1, 2)
To add liquid, remove cap 4 then
pour in the liquid until the reservoir
is completely full.
Use a mixture of water and DP1 liquid in these percentages:
30% DP1 and 70% water in summer.
50% DP1 and 50% water in winter.
If the temperature falls below –20°C,
use DP1 undiluted.
IMPORTANT Do not travel with
the windscreen washer bottle empty:
using the windscreen washer is fundamental for improving visibility.
Some commercial additives
for
windscreen
washer fluids are flammable. The engine compartment contains hot parts which could ignite
the fluid if it comes into contact
with them.

POWER-ASSISTED STEERING
FLUID (fig.s 1, 2)
Check the fluid level is not below the
MIN mark visible on the reservoir
with the engine cold.
Make sure the power-assisted steering fluid does
not come into contact with
hot parts of the engine as it catches
fire very easily.
If necessary, add fluid making sure
that it has the same specifications as
the fluid in the reservoir.
BRAKE FLUID (fig.s 1, 2)
Check that the fluid level in the
reservoir is at maximum level.
Periodically check that the warning
light on the instrument panel is working properly by pressing on the reservoir cover with the key at MAR.
Warning light x should come on.
If you need to add fluid, only use the
type classified DOT4. You are advised
in particular to use TUTELA TOP 4
with which the braking system was
originally filled.
Oil consumption is extremely low. If further topping up is required soon
after the initial top-up, have the
system checked over at a LANCIA
Dealership for leaks.
Do not push on the power
steering limit switch for
more than 15 seconds with
the engine running. This causes
noise and could damage the system.

Lift cover A (fig. 5), pull out the filter element B and replace it.
For cars without climate control,
provision has been made for fitting
the filter, which is available from
Lineaccessori LANCIA.
IMPORTANT Failure to replace the
filter can reduce the climate control
system’s efficiency considerably.
If the car is often used in dusty or
highly polluted areas, you should
change the pollen filtering element
more frequently, especially if you notice that the amount of air entering
the passenger compartment is reduced.
The Lancia Y’s battery is of the
“Limited Maintenance” type: under
normal conditions, it requires no topping up with distilled water.
REPLACING THE BATTERY
If required, replace the battery with
a genuine spare part presenting the
same specifications. If a battery with
different specifications is fitted, the
frequencies shown in the Service
Schedule will no longer be valid. Refer to the instructions provided by the
battery manufacturer.

CHECKING THE BATTERY
FLUID LEVEL (electrolyte)
Check the electrolyte level and top
up, if required, at the frequency
shown in the Service Schedule in this
chapter. Have this operation carried
out at a LANCIA Dealership.
The liquid in the battery
is poisonous and corrosive.
Do not let it touch the skin
or eyes. Do not bring naked flames
or possible sources of sparks near
to the battery: fire and explosion
risk.
Running the car with the
fluid level too low could
damage the battery beyond
repair, even breaking the casing
and allowing the acid contained in
it to leak out completely.
Always wear goggles to
protect the eyes when
working on or near the
battery.
If the car is to remain unused for a long period in
very cold weather, remove
the battery and keep it in a warm
place, otherwise it could freeze.
IMPORTANT When removing/installing the battery, make sure the
battery is mechanically secured correctly.
Incorrect fitting of electrical and electronic accessories can seriously
damage the car.
USEFUL ADVICE
FOR LENGTHENING
THE LIFE OF YOUR BATTERY
When you park the car, ensure the
doors, boot and bonnet are closed
properly. The ceiling and map-reading lights must be off.
Do not leave accessories (e.g. radio,
hazard lights, etc.) switched on for a
long time when the engine is not running.
IMPORTANT If the battery is left
with a charge of less than 50% for a
long time it will be damaged by sulphation, engine startup will deteriorate and it will be more subject to
freezing (this may occur at –10°C).
If the car is to be inactive for a long
period of time, refer to the “Storing
the car” paragraph in the “Driving
your car” section.

If, after purchasing the vehicle you
want to install electrical accessories
that require a permanent power supply (alarm, free-hand phone, radio
navigator with satellite anti theft system, etc.) go to a LANCIA Dealership. The qualified staff are able to
suggest the most suitable Lineaccessori devices and will assess the overall electric absorption, checking
whether the car can sustain the required load or if an oversized battery
is required.
Remember that these accessories
continue to absorb electrical power
even when the ignition key is removed
(car parked, engine off) and could
discharge the battery.
The overall absorption of these accessories (standard and after-sale installations) must be less than 0.6 mA
x Ah (of the battery) as shown in the
table below:
Battery
capacity
Maximum
idle
intake
40 Ah
24 mA
ELECTRONIC
CONTROL UNITS
When the car is being used normally, special measures are not necessary.
The following instructions must be
followed very carefully, however, if
you work on the electrical system or
in cases where emergency starting is
necessary:
– Never disconnect the battery from
the electrical system while the engine
is running.
Remember also that high current intake devices such as bottle heater,
vacuum cleaner, cellular phone, refrigerator etc., if powered while the
engine is off will accelerate the battery discharge.
IMPORTANT If you need to install
additional systems on the car, improper wiring connections, in particular if they affect safety devices, are
dangerous.
– Disconnect the battery from the
electrical system if you are recharging
it. Modern battery chargers can supply up to 20 volts.
– Never perform emergency starts
with a battery charger. Always use an
auxiliary battery.
– Be particularly careful when connecting the battery to the electrical system. Ensure the battery posts are connected up to the right leads (the polarity is correct) and check that the connection has been made properly. When
134
G
11-03-2008

Pagina 135
the battery is reconnected, the injection/ignition system control unit must
readapt its internal parameters; consequently performance may not be optimal during the first few kilometres after reconnecting the battery.
SPARK PLUGS
– Do not connect or disconnect the
terminals of the electronic units while
the ignition key is at MAR.
The appearance of the spark plug
(fig. 6), if examined by an expert eye,
is a good way of pinpointing a malfunction even if it has nothing to do
with the ignition system. Therefore if
the engine has problems, it is important to have the spark plugs checked
at a LANCIA Dealership.
– Do not check polarity through
sparking.
– Disconnect the electronic units if
you are electrically welding the car
body. Remove the units if temperatures exceed 80°C (special operations
on the bodywork etc.).
IMPORTANT If the radio or car
alarm systems are not installed correctly, they can interfere with the
working of the electronic control units.
The cleanness and soundness of the
spark plugs are very important for
keeping the engine efficient and polluting emissions down.
Versions
The spark plugs must be
changed at the times specified in the Service Schedule. Only use the type of plugs indicated: if the heat ratio is less
than required or the life specified

Incorrect pressure causes uneven
wear of the tyres (fig. 7):
TYRE PRESSURE
B - Underinflated tyre: shoulder
tread wear.
Every two weeks and before long
journeys, check the pressure of each
tyre including the spare.
Tyres must be replaced when the
tread wears down to 1.6 mm. Comply

car is being driven.
A - Correct pressure: tyre wears
evenly.
IMPORTANT
C - Overinflated tyre: centre tread
wear.
As far as possible avoid sharp braking and screech starts.

It is normal for the pressure to rise
when you are driving. If you have to
check or restore the pressure when the
tyres are warm, remember that the
pressure value must be 0.3 bar above
the specified value.
Be careful not to hit the kerb, potholes or other obstacles hard. Driving
for long stretches over bumpy roads
can damage the tyres.
Remember that roadholding is also influenced
by correct tyre pressure.
Avoid travelling with an overloaded
car: this can seriously damage wheels
or tyres.

If you get a flat tyre, stop immediately and change it so as not to damage the tyre, the wheel, the suspension
and the steering.
Tyres age even if they are not used
very much. Cracking of the tread rubber and the side walls are a sign of
this ageing. In any case, if the tyres
have been fitted for more than six
years they should be examined by an
expert who can judge whether they
are still fit for use. Remember to
check the spare tyre particularly carefully too.
If a replacement is necessary, always
use new tyres and avoid using ones
the origin of which you are not certain
about.
To ensure the front and rear tyres all
wear evenly, you are advised to
change the tyres over every 10-15
thousand kilometres keeping them on
the same side of the car so as not to
reverse the direction of rotation.
Do not change the tyres
over in criss-cross fashion
by moving a tyre from the
left hand side of the car to the right
and vice versa.
RUBBER TUBING
Follow the Service Schedule carefully in the case of the braking and
fuel supply systems rubber hoses.
Ozone, high temperatures and long
absence of liquid in the system can in
fact cause the hardening and cracking of the pipes with possible loss of
fluid. A careful check is therefore essential.
Lancia Y uses tubeless tyres. Under
no circumstances should an inner
tube be used with these tyres.
If you replace a tyre it is a good idea
to change the inflation valve, too.

WINDSCREEN/REAR
WINDOW WIPERS
BLADES
Periodically clean the rubber part
with suitable liquid, DP1 is recommended.
Change the blades if the rubber edge
is warped or worn out. You should in
any case change them approximately
once a year.
Travelling with worn
wiper blades is dangerous
because it reduces visibility in bad weather.
Some simple steps can reduce potential damage to the blades:
– If the temperature falls to below
zero, make sure the rubber blade is
not frozen to the windscreen. If necessary, free it with a de-icing compound.
– Remove any snow that has settled
on the glass: besides saving the blades
you will avoid straining the electric
windscreen wiper motor and causing
it to overheat.
3) Fit the new blade by inserting the
tab into the special hole in the arm.
Make sure it is properly locked into
place.

SPRAY NOZZLES
If there is no jet of liquid, first make
sure that there is liquid in the reservoir: see “Checking fluid levels” in
this section.
3) Fit a new arm and fasten the nut.
Close the cover.
IMPORTANT Before removing the
arm, mark the position of the wiper
(e.g. with felt-tip pen or adhesive
tape).
During the winter, the climate control system must be turned on at least
once a month for about ten minutes.
Then make sure that the holes in the
nozzles (figs. 10 and 11) are not
clogged up. Use a pin for this if necessary.
Have the system checked at a LANCIA Dealership before the summer.
The windscreen and rear window
washer jets can be adjusted.
The system uses R134a
refrigerating liquid. If it
accidentally leaks it will
not damage the environment.
Never use R12 fluid as it is incompatible with the system’s components and also contains CFC.
The windscreen washer jet can be
adjusted by inserting a pin in the
aperture of each nozzle.

BODYWORK
PROTECTING THE CAR FROM
ATMOSPHERIC ELEMENTS
The main causes of rust are:
– atmospheric pollution;
– salt and humidity in the atmosphere (coastal e or very hot and humid areas);
– environmental conditions that are
specific to the season.
In addition, the abrasiveness of dust
in the atmosphere and sand carried
by the wind as well as mud and stones
thrown up by other cars must not be
underestimated.
For your Lancia Y, Lancia has used
leading-edge technological solutions
to effectively protect the body from
rust.
These are the main ones:
– Painting systems and products
that make the car particularly resistant to rust and scratching.
– The use of zinc-plated (or pretreated) sheet steel which is highly resistant to rust.
TIPS FOR KEEPING THE BODY
IN GOOD CONDITION
– The spraying of the underbody,
engine compartment, inside the wheelarches and other parts with waxbased products with a high protective
capacity.
Paintwork
– Spraying plastic-coating materials
to protect the most exposed points:
under the door, inside the wings,
edges etc.
– The use of “open” box sections to
prevent condensation and water from
building up and rusting the inside of
the parts.
BODY AND UNDERBODY
GUARANTEE
Your Lancia Y is covered by guarantee against any original structural
or body part being holed by rust. Refer to the “LANCIA Warranty Booklet” for the general conditions of this
guarantee.
The paintwork is not only to make
your car look attractive but also to
protect the steel.
If your car is scuffed or scratched
deeply you are therefore recommended
to touch up the paintwork as necessary
to prevent rust from forming.
Only use original products when
touching up the paintwork (see the
“Technical specifications” section).
Ordinary maintenance of the paintwork involves in washing it. The frequency you should do this depends on
the conditions and the environment
the car is driven in. For example if
you drive in areas with a high level of
air pollution, or on roads sprinkled
with road salt, or if you park under
resinous trees, it is a good idea to
wash the car more often.

IMPORTANT Cars with optional
“Kaleidos” options (non-standard
personalised paint colours), can be repaired in exactly the same way as
other cars painted with standard
colours at your LANCIA Dealership.
To wash the car properly:
1) Remove the aerial from the roof
to prevent damaging it when washing
the car in an automatic carwash.
2) Wet the body using a low pressure
jet of water.
3) Wipe a sponge with a slightly
soapy solution over the bodywork,
frequently rinsing the sponge.
Detergents pollute water.
For this reason, the car
must be washed in an area
equipped for the collection and
purification of the liquids used
while washing.
IMPORTANT Washing is to be carried out with the engine cold and the
ignition key on STOP. After washing
make sure that the various protections
(rubber sheaths and other guards)
have not moved from their positions
or been damaged.
As far as possible avoid parking your
car under trees; the resinous substances which often drop from certain
types of trees could dull the paint and
increase the possibility of rusting.
IMPORTANT Bird droppings must
be washed off immediately and with
great care as their acid is particularly
aggressive.
4) Rinse well with water and dry
with a jet of air or a chamois leather.
When drying the car, be careful to
get at those parts which are not so
easily seen e.g. the door frames, bonnet and around the headlights where
water can most readily collect. You
are advised not to take the car into a
closed area immediately, but to leave
it out in the open so any water left can
evaporate more easily.
Do not wash the car after it has been
parked in the sun or while the bonnet
is hot: it could take the shine off the
paint.
External plastic parts must be
cleaned following the usual car washing procedure.

Windows
Use specific window cleaners to
clean the windows. Use very clean
cloths to avoid scratching the glass or
damaging its transparency.
IMPORTANT To prevent damage
to the electric heater elements, wipe
the inside of the heated rear window
gently in the same direction as the elements.
Engine compartment
At the end of each winter season,
carefully clean the engine compartment. Be careful not to direct the jet
of water on the electronic control
units. Have this done at a garage.
Detergents pollute water.
The car must therefore be
washed in an area
equipped for the collection and
purification of the liquids used
while washing.
IMPORTANT The car should be
washed while the engine is cold and
with the ignition key at STOP. After
washing the car, make sure that the
various protections (e.g. rubber boots
and various guards) have not been removed or damaged.
INTERIORS
From time to time check that water
has not collected under the mats
(from dripping shoes, umbrellas etc.)
which could cause the steel to rust.
CLEANING THE SEATS
AND FABRIC UPHOLSTERY
– Remove the dust with a soft brush
or a vacuum cleaner.
– Rub the seats with a sponge moistened in a solution of water and neutral detergent.

CLEANING LEATHER SEATS
AND PARTS
PLASTIC PARTS INSIDE
THE CAR
– Remove the dry dirt with a buckskin or very slightly moist cloth without exerting too much pressure.
Use special products designed not to
alter the appearance of the components.
– Remove liquid or grease stains
with a dry absorbent cloth without
rubbing. Then wipe with a buckskin
or soft cloth moistened with water and
neutral soap.
IMPORTANT Do not use alcohol or
petrol for cleaning the glass of the instrument panel.
Do not keep aerosol cans
in the car. There is the risk
they might explode. Aerosol
cans must never be exposed to a
temperature above 50°C; when the
weather starts to get hot the temperature inside the car might go
well beyond that figure.
If the stain does not come out, use a
special cleaning compound being particularly careful to follow the instructions for use.
IMPORTANT Never use alcohol or
alcohol-base products.
Never use flammable
products (petroleum ether
or petrol) to clean the inside of the car. Electrostatic
charges generated by rubbing
while cleaning could cause fires.

FUEL
CONSUMPTION CO2 EMISSIONS
Consumption values are defined by
means of the following procedures:
The fuel consumption values, in
litres x 100 km, indicated in the following tables, have been determined
according to homologation tests prescribed in the European Directive
specifications. The following procedures are used to define the consumption values:
– an extra-urban cycle consisting
in frequent accelerations, in all gears,
simulating normal conditions of use.
Speed ranges from 0 to 120 km/h;
– an urban cycle consisting of a
cold start and a simulated drive in
city streets;
– the combined consumption is
calculated as approximately 37% of
the urban cycle and approximately
63% of the extra-urban cycle.
IMPORTANT Road and traffic
conditions, weather, general conditions of the car, driving style, fittings and accessories, use of the
climate control system, load, roof
racks and other situations penalising aerodynamic penetration and
effecting rolling resistance will influence fuel consumption rates
which can be different from the
values shown in the table (see
“Cheap running that respects the
environment” in “Driving your
car” chapter).
Consumption may be greater during
the first 2000 km due to running in.
