melted wire. Do not replace the fuse

until the cause of the fault has been

remedied.
Some functions are protected by

several fuses.
Fuses may also be inserted without

Vehicles with spare wheel

The jack and the vehicle tools are in

the spare wheel well in the load

compartment.

Wheels and tyres

Tyre condition, wheel condition

Drive over edges slowly and at right

angles if possible. Driving over sharp

edges can cause tyre and wheel

damage. Do not trap tyres on the kerb

when parking.
Regularly check the wheels for

damage. Seek the assistance of a

workshop in the event of damage or

unusual wear.

Winter tyres

Winter tyres improve driving safety at

temperatures below 7 °C and should

therefore be fitted on all wheels.
In accordance with country-specific

regulations, affix the speed sticker in

the driver's field of view.

Tyre designations

E.g. 195/65 R 15 91 H
195 : tyre width, mm

65 : cross-section ratio (tyre height

to tyre width), %

R

: belt type: Radial

RF : type: RunFlat

15 : wheel diameter, inches

91 : load index e.g. 91 is equivalent

to 615 kg

H

: speed code letter

Speed code letter:
Q : up to 160 km/h

S : up to 180 km/h

T : up to 190 km/h

H : up to 210 km/h

V : up to 240 km/h

W : up to 270 km/h
Choose a tyre appropriate for the

maximum speed of your vehicle.
The maximum speed is achievable at

kerb weight with driver (75 kg) plus

125 kg payload. Optional equipment

could reduce the maximum speed of

the vehicle.
Performance 3 230.

Directional tyres

Directional tyres must be mounted so

that they rotate in the correct

direction. The proper rotation

direction is indicated by a symbol

(e.g. an arrow) on the sidewall.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vehicle care

197

Tyre pressure

Check the pressure of cold tyres at

least every 14 days and before any

long journey. Do not forget the spare

wheel. This also applies to vehicles

with tyre pressure monitoring system.
Unscrew the valve cap.

Tyre pressure 3 235.
The tyre pressure information label

on the right door frame indicates the

original equipment tyres and the

correspondent tyre pressures.
The tyre pressure data refers to cold

tyres. It applies to summer and winter

tyres.

Always inflate the spare tyre to the

pressure specified for full load.
The ECO tyre pressure serves to

achieve the smallest amount of fuel

consumption possible.
Incorrect tyre pressures will impair

safety, vehicle handling, comfort and

fuel economy and will increase tyre

wear.
Tyre pressures differ depending on

various options. For the correct tyre

pressure value, follow the procedure

below:

1. Identify the engine identifier code.

Engine data 3 228.

2. Identify the respective tyre.

The tyre pressure tables show all

possible tyre combinations 3 235.
For the tyres approved for your

vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of

Conformity provided with your vehicle

or other national registration

documents.
The driver is responsible for correct

adjustment of tyre pressure.

9 Warning

If the pressure is too low, this can

result in considerable tyre warm-

up and internal damage, leading to

tread separation and even to tyre

blow-out at high speeds.

9 Warning

For specific tyres the

recommended tyre pressure as

shown in the tyre pressure table

may exceed the maximum tyre

pressure as indicated on the tyre.

Never exceed the maximum tyre

pressure as indicated on the tyre.

If the tyre pressure must be reduced

or increased on a vehicle with tyre

pressure monitoring system, switch

off ignition.

Temperature dependency

The tyre pressure depends on the

temperature of the tyre. During

driving, tyre temperature and

pressure increase. Tyre pressure
