Vehicles with automatic wiper 

function

With the engine running, move stalk 1
–  A park.
–  B
 automatic wiper function

When this position is selected, the 

system detects water on the wind-

screen and triggers the wipers at a 

suitable wiping speed. It is possi-

ble to change the triggering thresh-

old and the time sweeps by turning 

ring 2:

–  E: minimum sensitivity
–  F: maximum sensitivity
NB: in foggy weather or during 

snowfalls, the wiping is not automati-

cally triggered and remains under 

the driver’s control.

–  C normal wiping speed.
–  D
 fast wiping speed.

Special note

When driving, the wiping speed slows 

down whenever the vehicle stops. The 

speed will change from fast wiping 

speed to normal wiping speed.

As soon as the vehicle moves off, 

wiping will return to the speed originally 

selected. If stalk 1 is operated, it over-

rides and cancels the automatic func-

tion.

With the ignition on, move stalk 1
–  A park.
–  B
 intermittent wiping.

The wipers will pause for several 

seconds between sweeps. It is 

possible to change the time be-

tween sweeps by turning ring 2.

–  C normal wiping speed.
–  D
 fast wiping speed.

ing the windscreen, etc.) 

return stalk 1 to position A (park).
Risk of injury and/or damage.

Windscreen washer

With the ignition on, pull stalk 1 to-

wards you.
A brief pull will trigger a single sweep 

of the wipers, in addition to the wind-

screen washer.

of the wipers followed, a few seconds 

later, by a fourth, in addition to the wind-

screen washer.

In freezing or snowy weather, ensure 

they are not stuck to the windscreen 

(including the central area located 

behind the interior rear-view mirror) 

and the rear screen before starting 

the wipers (risk of motor overheat-

ing).
Check the condition of the wiper 

blades. You are responsible for their 

service life:

–  they must remain clean: clean 

the blades, windscreen and 

rear screen regularly with soapy 

water;

–  do not use them when the wind-

screen or rear screen are dry;

–  free them from the windscreen or 

rear screen when they have not 

been used for a long time.

In all cases, replace them as soon 

as they begin to lose efficiency: ap-

proximately once a year.

Before using the rear wiper, check 

that no object obstructs the travel of 

the blade.

Do not use the wiper arm to open or 

close the tailgate.

Risk of injury or damage.

When working in the engine 

compartment, ensure that 

the windscreen wiper stalk 

is in the park position.

Risk of injury.

1.85

Fuel grade

Use a high-grade fuel that complies 

with the legislation in force in each 

country and which must comply with 

the specifications given on the label 

on the cover A. Please refer to the in-

formation on “Engine specifications” in 

Section 6.
Diesel version
Only
 use diesel fuel which complies 

with the information on the label located 

inside the cover A.

Useful capacity of fuel tank: approx. 

45 litres.
The engine 0,9 TCe has a fuel tank ca-

pacity of 40 litres or 45 litres (depend-

ing on the vehicle).
To open cover A, place your finger into 

recess B

When filling, use the cap holder 1 on 

the cover A to secure the cap 2.

FUEL TANK 

(1/3)

After filling, check that the cap and 

cover are closed.

Fuel filler cap: this is spe-

cific.
If you have to replace it, 

make sure it is identical 

to the original cap. Contact an ap-

proved Dealer.

Never place the cap near a source 

of heat or flame.
Do not wash the filler area with a 

high-pressure washer.

1

Do not mix even small 

amounts of petrol (un-

leaded or E85) with diesel. 

Do not use ethanol-based 

fuel if your vehicle is not compatible 

with this fuel.

Do not add additive to the fuel –

otherwise you risk damaging the 

engine.

Petrol version
It is essential to use unleaded petrol. 

The octane rating (RON) must comply 

with the information given on the label 

on the cover A. Refer to Section 6 for 

information on “Engine specifications”.

1.86

Filling with fuel

With the ignition off, insert the nozzle 

and insert it fully before turning it on to 

fill the fuel tank (risk of splashing).
Keep the nozzle in this position through-

out the entire filling operation.

When the pump cuts out automatically 

at the end of the filling procedure, a 

maximum of two further filling attempts 

may be made, as there must be suffi-

cient space in the fuel tank to allow for 

expansion.

Make sure that no water enters the fuel 

tank during filling. The cover A and its 

surround must remain clean.

Petrol versions

Using leaded petrol will damage the 

antipollution system and may lead to a 

loss of warranty.

To ensure that the fuel tank is not filled 

with leaded petrol, the fuel tank filler 

neck contains a restrictor fitted with a 

foolproof system which only allows 

the nozzle for unleaded petrol to be 

used (at the pump).

FUEL TANK 

(2/3)

Vehicle fitted with the Stop and 

Start function
To fill up with fuel, the engine must 

be stopped (and not on standby): 

stop the engine by pressing the 

engine stop button 3 (please refer 

to the information on “Starting and 

Stopping the engine” in Section 2).

Persistent fuel odour

If you notice a persistent 

fuel odour you should:

–  stop the vehicle as soon as traf-

fic conditions allow and switch off 

the ignition;

– switch on the hazard warning 

lights and ask your passengers to 

leave the vehicle and stay clear 

of the traffic;

–  contact an approved Dealer.

1.87

No modifications what-

soever are permitted on 

any part of the fuel supply 

system (electronic units, 

wiring, fuel circuit, injectors, pro-

tective covers, etc.) as this may be 

dangerous (unless undertaken by 

qualified Network personnel).

FUEL TANK (3/3)

Running out of fuel on diesel 

versions

Vehicles with priming bulb 4

After a breakdown caused by com-

pletely running out of fuel, the system 

must be reprimed before the engine is 

restarted:

Fill the tank with at least 8 litres of 

diesel fuel.

Press priming bulb 4 several times.
The engine can now be restarted.

If the engine does not start after several 

attempts, contact an approved Dealer.

4

Vehicles without priming bulb 4
Insert the RENAULT card into the 5 

card reader. Press the start button 3 

without pressing any of the pedals. Wait 

a few minutes before starting. This will 

enable the fuel circuit to be primed. If 

the engine does not start, repeat the 

procedure.

The engine may be hot 

when working in close prox-

imity. In addition, the engine 

cooling fan may come on at 

any moment.
Risk of injury.

STOP AND START FUNCTION 

(1/4)

This system enables a reduced fuel 

consumption and lower greenhouse 

gas emissions. The system is acti-

vated automatically when the vehicle is 

started. While driving, the system stops 

the engine (standby) when the vehicle 

is at a standstill (traffic jam, traffic lights, 

etc).

ciently hard);

and

– the accelerator pedal is not de-

pressed;

and

– the speed is zero for around 

1 second.

The engine remains on standby if posi-

lected with the handbrake engaged and 

the brake pedal released.

For vehicles equipped with manual 

gearboxes:
–  the gearbox is in neutral;

and

–  the clutch pedal is released. 

  If the warning light 

 flashes, 

this means that the clutch pedal is 

not sufficiently released;

and

–  the vehicle speed is less than ap-

proximately 7 mph (3 km/h).

In all vehicles, the warning light 

 

 

on the instrument panel is lit when the 

engine is on standby.
The vehicle equipment remain opera-
