CHECKING LEVELS

 Check all of these levels regularly and 

top them up if necessary, unless other-

wise indicated. 
 If a level drops signifi cantly, have the 

corresponding system checked by a 

PEUGEOT dealer or a qualifi ed  work-

shop. 
 Take care when working under the bon-

net, as some parts of the engine can be 

extremely hot (risk of burns). 

  Brake fluid level 

  Oil level 

 The reading will only be correct 

if the vehicle is on level ground 

and the engine has been off for 

more than 30 minutes. 

 The check is carried out either when 

the ignition is switched on using the oil 

level indicator on the instrument panel, 

or using the dipstick. 
 It is normal to top up the engine oil be-

tween two services. The manufacturer 

recommends a check of the oil level, and 

top up if necessary, every 3 000 miles 

(5 000 km). 

 The brake fl uid level should be 

close to the "MAX" mark. If it is 

not, check the brake pad wear. 

  Changing the brake fl uid 
 Refer to the Warranty and Maintenance 

Record for details of the interval for this 

operation.  

  Changing the engine oil 
 Refer to the Warranty and Maintenance 

Record for details of the interval for this 

operation. 
 In order to maintain the reliability of the 

engine and emission control system, 

the use of additives in the engine oil is 

prohibited.  

  Oil specifi cation 
 The oil must correspond to your engine 

and conform to the manufacturer's rec-

ommendations.   

  Fluid specifi cation 
 The brake fl uid must conform to the 

manufacturer's recommendations and 

fulfi l the DOT4 standards.

CHECKS

129

 To avoid any risk of scalding, unscrew 

the cap by two turns to allow the pres-

sure to drop. When the pressure has 

dropped, remove the cap and top up 

the level. 

  Coolant level 

 The coolant level should be close 

to the "MAX" mark but should nev-

er exceed it. 
 When the engine is warm, the tem-

perature of the coolant is regulated by the 

fan. This can operate with the ignition off. 
  On vehicles which are fi tted with a par-

ticle emission fi lter, the fan may operate 

after the vehicle has been switched off, 

even if the engine is cold.  
 In addition, as the cooling system is pres-

surised, wait at least one hour after switch-

ing off the engine before carrying out any 

work. 

  Screenwash and headlamp 

wash *  fluid 

 The minimum level of this fl uid 

is indicated by an audible sig-

nal and a message on the mul-

tifunction screen. 

 Top up the level when you stop the 

vehicle. 

  *   According to country.  

  Changing the coolant 
 The coolant does not have to be 

changed.  

  Fluid specifi cation 
 The coolant must conform to the manu-

facturer's recommendations.   

  Fluid specifi cation 
 To guarantee optimum cleaning and 

avoid freezing, plain water should not 

be used to top up or replace this fl uid.   

 Avoid any prolonged contact of 

used oil or fl uids with the skin. 
 Most of these fl uids are harmful to 

health or indeed very corrosive. 

 Do not discard used oil or fl uids 

into sewers or onto the ground. 
 Take used oil to a PEUGEOT 

dealer or a qualifi ed  workshop 

(France) or an authorised waste 

disposal site.  

  Diesel additive level (Diesel with 

particle emission filter) 

 The minimum level of this additive is in-

dicated by lighting of the service warn-

ing lamp, accompanied by an audible 

signal and a message on the multifunc-

tion screen. 

  Used products 

  Topping up 
 This additive must be topped up by a 

PEUGEOT dealer or a qualifi ed  work-

shop without delay.

CHECKS

 Unless otherwise indicated, check these 

components in accordance with the 

Warranty and Maintenance Record and in 

relation to your engine. 
 Otherwise, have them checked by a 

PEUGEOT dealer or a qualifi ed workshop. 

  Battery 

 The battery does not require 

any maintenance. 
 However, check that the ter-

minals are clean and correctly 

tightened, particularly in sum-

mer and winter. 
 When carrying out work on the battery, 

refer to the "Practical information" sec-

tion for details of the precautions to be 

taken before disconnecting the battery 

and following its reconnection.  

  Air filter and passenger compartment filter 

 Refer to the Warranty and 

Maintenance Record for de-

tails of the replacement inter-

vals for these components. 
 Depending on the environ-

ment (dusty atmosphere...) and the use 

of the vehicle (city driving...),  

replace 

them twice as often if necessary . 
 A clogged passenger compartment fi lter 

may have an adverse effect on the per-

formance of the air conditioning system 

and generate undesirable odours.  

  Particle emission filter (Diesel) 

 Illumination of the service warning lamp togeth-

er with a related message indicates the start of 

saturation of the particle emissions fi lter. 
 As soon as the driving conditions permit, re-

generate the fi lter by driving at a speed of at 

least 35 mph (60 km/h) until the service warn-

ing lamp goes off. 
 Maintenance of the particle emission fi lter 

must be carried out by a PEUGEOT dealer or 

a qualifi ed workshop. 

  Oil filter 

 Replace the oil fi lter each time 

the engine oil is changed. 
 Refer to the Warranty and 

Maintenance Record for de-

tails of the replacement inter-

val for this component.  

 Following prolonged operation of 

the vehicle at very low speed or at 

idle, you may, exceptionally, notice 

the emission of water vapour at 

the exhaust on acceleration. This 

does not have any adverse effect 

on the performance of the vehicle 

or on the environment.

Maintenance Record for de-

tails of the checking intervals 

for this component.  

  Parking brake 

 If the parking brake travel is too 

long or if you notice a loss of effec-

tiveness of this system, the parking 

brake must be adjusted, even be-

tween two services. 

 This system must be checked by a PEUGEOT 

dealer or a qualifi ed workshop. 

  Manual gearbox 

 The gearbox does not re-

quire any maintenance (no oil 

change). 
  Refer to the Warranty and

tervals for this component.  

  Brake disc and drum wear 

 For any information relating 

to checking of the brake disc 

and/or drum wear, contact a 

PEUGEOT dealer or a quali-

fi ed workshop.  

 Only use products recommend-

ed by PEUGEOT or products of 

equivalent quality and specifi ca-

tions. 
 In order to optimise the operation 

of units as important as the brak-

ing system, PEUGEOT selects 

and offers very specifi c products. 
 To avoid damaging the electrical 

units, the use of a high pressure 

washer in the engine compart-

ment is strictly  prohibited .  

  Brake pads 

 Brake wear depends on the 

style of driving, particularly in 

the case of vehicles used in 

town, over short distances. It 

may be necessary to have the 

condition of the brakes checked, even 

between vehicle services. 
 Unless there is a leak on the circuit, a 

drop in the brake fl uid level indicates 

that the brake pads are worn.

CHANGING A BULB

  Changing the direction indicator 

bulbs 

 Amber coloured bulbs, such as the 

direction indicators, must be re-

placed with bulbs of identical spec-

ifi cation and colour.  

   )   Turn the bulb holder one quarter of 

a turn and remove it. 

  )   Pull the bulb then change it.  
 To refi t, carry out these operations in re-

verse order. 

                                  1.    Direction indicators (PY21W amber).  
  2.    Sidelamps (W5W).  
  3.    Dipped beam headlamps (H7-55W).  
  4.    Main beam headlamps (H1-55W).  
  5.    Foglamps (H11-55W).    

    )   Do not touch the bulb directly 

with your fi ngers, use lint-free 

cloths.  

 Changing a bulb should only be 

done after the headlamp has been 

switched off for a few minutes (risk 

of serious burns). 
 It is imperative to use only anti-

ultraviolet (UV) type bulbs in order 

not to damage the headlamp. 
 Always replace a failed bulb with a 

new bulb with the same type and 

specifi cation.  

 In some weather conditions (e.g. 

low temperature or humidity), the 

presence of misting on the internal 

surface of the glass of the head-

lamps and rear lamps is normal; 

it disappears after the lamps have 

been on for a few minutes.
