Renault Captur (2018 year). Instruction - part 12

 

 

4.17

You should not:

Position objects such as deodorants, 

scents etc. near air vents as this could 

damage your dashboard trim.

Use high-pressure 

cleaning equipment or 

sprays inside the pas-

senger compartment: 

without careful use, this equipment 

could impair the correct functioning 

of the electrical or electronic compo-

nents in the vehicle, or have other 

detrimental effects.

INTERIOR TRIM MAINTENANCE 

(2/2)

Removal/replacing removable 

equipment originally fitted in 

the vehicle

If you need to remove equipment in 

order to clean the passenger com-

partment (for example, mats), always 

ensure that they are correctly refitted 

and are the right way around (the driv-

er’s mat should be fitted on the driver’s 

side, etc.) and fit them with the compo-

nents supplied with the equipment (for 

example, the driver mat should always 

be fixed using the pre-fitted mounting 

components).
With the vehicle stationary, always 

ensure that nothing will impede driving 

(anything obstructing the pedals, heel 

wedged by the mat etc.).

4.18

SEAT COVERINGS 

(1/5)

Depending on the vehicle, it is possible 

to remove the seat covers (cleaning, 

customisation, etc.).

Principle of seat cover 

removal

Whether it’s for the back or the base, 

always remove as shown in the pic-

ture above A : do not rip the self-grip 

bands out.

Precautions in use
Once the covers are removed:

–  do not use the seats;

–  take care with the self-grip bands.
Washing instructions
Follow the washing instructions 

shown on the seat covers (labels) in 

particular;

–  wash the seat covers separately 

from other materials;

In case of puncture

Depending on the vehicle, a tyre infla-

tion kit or emergency spare wheel is 

provided (refer to the following pages).
Vehicle fitted with a tyre pressure 

loss warning system

If under-inflated (puncture, low pres-

sure etc.), the warning light 

 on 

the instrument panel comes on. See 

“Tyre pressure loss warning” in 

Section 2.

If the emergency spare wheel has been stored for several years, have it 

checked by your Dealer to ensure that it is safe to use.
Vehicle fitted with an emergency spare wheel that differs from the 

other wheels:

–  Never fit more than one emergency spare wheel to the same vehicle.
–  Replace the emergency spare wheel as soon as possible with a wheel identi-

cal to the original one.

–  When this is fitted to the vehicle, which must only be a temporary measure, the 

driving speed must not exceed the speed indicated on the label on the wheel.

–  Fitting an emergency spare wheel may alter the way the vehicle usually runs. 

Avoid sudden acceleration or deceleration and reduce your speed when cor-

nering.

–  If you need to use snow chains, fit the emergency spare wheel to the rear axle 

and check the tyre pressure.

–  The warning light 

 on the instrument panel flashes for several seconds, 

then stays on.

PUNCTURE, EMERGENCY SPARE WHEEL (1/2)

If the vehicle is parked on 

the hard shoulder, you must 

warn other road users of 

your vehicle’s presence 

with a warning triangle or with other 

devices as per the legislation apply-

ing to the country you are in.

5.3

Vehicle not fitted with a 

subwoofer

–  Open the tailgate;

–  place the mobile floor in the mid-way 

position (please refer to the section 

on “Boot storage” in Section 3);

–  lift the boot carpet 2;

–  unscrew the central mounting lo-

cated under the jack;

–  remove the tool kit 3;

– remove the emergency spare 

wheel 1.

Vehicle fitted with a 

subwoofer

–  Open the tailgate;

–  place the mobile floor in the mid-way 

position (please refer to the section 

on “Boot storage” in Section 3);

–  lift the boot carpet 2;

–  loosen the central mounting 4, dis-

connect the power cable 5 from the 

subwoofer  6 and remove the sub-

woofer (refer to the label stuck to 

the subwoofer);

– remove the emergency spare 

wheel 1.

Remove the subwoofer 6, refit it and 

reconnect it in the same position 

again. Handle it carefully. If not, this 

could impair the correct functioning 

of the subwoofer.

5.4

TYRE PRESSURE KIT 

(1/3)

The kit is only approved for 

inflating the tyres of the ve-

hicle originally equipped 

with the kit.

It must never be used to inflate 

the tyres of another vehicle, or any 

other inflatable object (rubber ring, 

rubber boat, etc.).
Avoid spillage on skin when han-

dling the repair product bottle. If 

droplets do leak out, rinse them off 

with plenty of water.
Keep the repair kit away from chil-

dren.
Do not dispose of the empty bottle 

in the countryside. Return it to your 

approved dealer or to a recycling or-

ganisation.
The bottle has a limited service 

life which is indicated on its label. 

Check the expiry date.
Contact an approved dealer to re-

place the inflation tube and repair 

product bottle.

A

B

The kit repairs tyres when 

tread A has been dam-

aged by objects smaller 

than 4 mm. It cannot repair 

all types of puncture, such as cuts 

larger than 4 mm, or cuts in tyre 

sidewall B.
Ensure also that the wheel rim is in 

good condition.
Do not pull out the foreign body 

causing the puncture if it is still in 

the tyre.

Do not attempt to use the 

inflation kit if the tyre has 

been damaged as a result 

of driving with a puncture.

You should therefore carefully check 

the condition of the tyre sidewalls 

before any operation.
Driving with underinflated, flat or 

punctured tyres can be dangerous 

and may make the tyre impossible 

to repair.
This repair is temporary.
A tyre which has been punctured 

should always be inspected (and re-

paired, where possible) as soon as 

possible by a specialist.
When taking a tyre which has been 

repaired using this kit to be replaced, 

you must inform the specialist.
When driving, vibration may be felt 

due to the presence of the repair 

product injected into the tyre.

5.5

TYRE PRESSURE KIT 

(2/3)

Depending on the vehicle, in the event 

of a puncture, use the kit located in the 

boot or underneath the luggage com-

partment carpet.
Vehicle fitted with a tyre pressure 

loss warning system
If under-inflated (puncture, low pres-

sure, etc.), the warning light 

 

lights up on the instrument panel. 

See “Tyre pressure loss warning” in 

Section 2.

With the engine running and the 

parking brake applied,

–  Disconnect any accessories previ-

ously connected to the vehicle’s ac-

cessories sockets;

–  Refer to the information on the in-

flation kit compressor located in the 

vehicle’s luggage compartment and 

follow the instructions;

–  inflate the tyre to the recommended 

pressure (please refer to the infor-

mation in the section on “Tyre pres-

sures”);

–  after a maximum of 15 minutes, stop 

inflating and read the pressure (on 

the pressure gauge 1);
Note: while the bottle is emptying 

(approximately 30 seconds), the 

pressure gauge 1 will indicate briefly 

a pressure of 6 bar, then the pres-

sure drops.

– Adjust the pressure: to increase 

it, continue inflation with the kit. To 

reduce it, press the button 2.

1

Before using this kit, park 

the vehicle at a sufficient 

distance from traffic, switch 

on the hazard warning 

lights, apply the handbrake, ask all 

passengers to leave the vehicle and 

keep them away from traffic.

If the vehicle is parked on 

the hard shoulder, you must 

warn other road users of 

your vehicle’s presence 

with a warning triangle or with other 

devices as per the legislation apply-

ing to the country you are in.

5.6

TYRE PRESSURE KIT 

(3/3)

If a minimum pressure of 1.8 bar is 

not reached after 15 minutes, repair 

is not possible; do not drive the ve-

hicle but contact an approved dealer.

Once the tyre is correctly inflated, 

remove the kit: slowly unscrew the in-

flation end piece 3 to prevent any prod-

uct spatter and store the container in 

plastic packaging to prevent product 

leaks.
– Affix the driving recommendation 

label to the dashboard where it can 

easily be seen by the driver;

–  Put the kit away.

–  At the end of this initial inflation op-

eration, air will still escape from the 

tyre. You must drive a short distance 

in order to seal the hole.

–  Start immediately and drive at 

between 12 and 40 mph (20 and 

60 km/h) in order to distribute the 

product evenly in the tyre and, after 

driving for 2 miles (3 km), stop and 

check the pressure.

–  If the pressure is greater than 

1.3 bar but less than the recom-

mended pressure (refer to the label 

affixed to the edge of the driver’s 

door), readjust it. Otherwise, please 

contact an authorised dealer: the 

tyre cannot be repaired.

Precautions when using the 

kit

The kit should not be operated for more 

than 15 consecutive minutes.

Nothing should be placed 

around the driver’s feet 

as such objects may slide 

under the pedals during 

sudden braking manoeuvres and 

obstruct their use.

3

Please be aware that a 

poorly tightened or miss-

ing valve cap can make the 

tyres less airtight and may 

lead to pressure loss.
Always use valve caps identical to 

those fitted originally and tighten 

them fully.

Following repair with the kit, 

do not travel further than 

120 miles (200 km). In addi-

tion, reduce your speed and 

under no circumstances exceed 

48 mph (80 km/h). The sticker, 

which you must affix in a prominent 

position on the dashboard, reminds 

you of this.

Depending on the country or local 

legislation, a tyre repaired with the 

inflation kit may need to be replaced.
