The presence and location of the infor-

mation on the label depends on the ve-

B: dimension of the tyres fitted to the 

C: tyre pressures for the front wheels 

D: tyre pressures for the rear wheels 

E: tyre pressures for the front wheels 

F: tyre pressures for the rear wheels 

(motorway driving).


Label A

To read it, open the driver’s door. Tyre 

pressures should be checked when the 

tyres are cold.
If the tyre pressures cannot be checked 

when the tyres are cold, increase the 

pressures from 0.2 to 0.3 bar (or 3 PSI). 

Never deflate a hot tyre.

G: tyre pressure for the emergency 

spare wheel.
H: intended driving speed.
I: tyre pressures for the front wheels.
J: tyre pressures for the rear wheels.




Special note concerning fully laden 

vehicles (Maximum Permissible All-Up 

Weight) and towing a trailer: the maxi-

mum speed must be limited to 60 mph 

(100 kph) and the tyre pressure in-

creased by 0.2 bar.
Please refer to the information on 

“Weights” in Section 6.
Tyre safety and use of snow chains: 

Refer to the information on “Tyres” in 

Section 5 for the servicing conditions 

and, depending on the version, the use 

of chains.

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” paragraph 

in chapter 2.

For your safety, please re-

spect the speed limit.
When they need to be re-

placed, only tyres of the 

same make, size, type and profile 

should be used on a single axle.
They must: either have a load ca-

pacity and speed rating at least 

equal to those of the original 

tyres, or conform to those recom-

mended by an authorised dealer.
Failure to heed these instructions 

could endanger your safety and 

affect your vehicle’s roadworthi-

Battery 1 does not require any mainte-

nance. You should not open it or add 

any fluid.

Handle the battery with care 

as it contains sulphuric acid, 

which must not come into 

contact with eyes or skin. If 

it does, wash the affected area with 

plenty of cold water and consult a 

doctor, if necessary.
Ensure that naked flames, red hot 

objects and sparks do not come into 

contact with the battery as there is a 

risk of explosion.


The charge status of your battery can 

decrease especially if you use your ve-

–  for short journeys;
–  for driving in town;
–  when the temperature drops;
–  after extended use of consumers 

(radio etc.) with the engine switched 


Replacing the battery

As this operation is complex, we advise 

you to contact an approved Dealer.

As the battery is specific 

to the vehicle (presence of 

a ventilation pipe to expel 

corrosive and explosive 

gases), make sure that it is replaced 

with a battery that enables this pipe 

to be connected. Please contact an 

authorised dealer.

Deactivate the Stop and 

Start function for any opera-

tion performed in the engine 





Label A
Observe the indications on the battery:
– 2  Naked flames and smoking forbid-


– 3 Wear eye protection;
– 4 Keep away from children;
– 5 Explosive substances;
– 6 Refer to the handbook;
– 7 Corrosive substances.

The engine may be hot 

during operations in close 

proximity. In addition, the 

engine cooling fan may 

start at any moment.
Risk of injury.












You should

Wash your car frequently, with the 

engine off, with cleaning products rec-

ommended by the manufacturer (never 

use abrasive products). Rinse thor-

oughly beforehand with a jet:


spots of tree resin and industrial 



mud in the wheel arches and under-

neath the body which forms damp 



bird droppings, which cause a 

chemical reaction with the paint that 

rapidly discolours paintwork and 

may even cause the paint to peel 


   wash the vehicle immediately to 

remove these marks since it is im-

possible to remove them by polish-



salt, particularly in the wheel arches 

and underneath the body after driv-

ing in areas where the roads have 

been gritted.

Remove any plant matter (resin, leaves, 

etc.) from the vehicle regularly.

What you should not do

Do not degrease or clean mechani-

cal components (e.g. the engine com-

partment), underneath the body, parts 

with hinges (e.g. inside the doors) and 

painted plastic external fittings (e.g. 

bumpers) using high-pressure clean-

ing equipment or by spraying on prod-

ucts not approved by our Technical 

Department. Doing this could give rise 

to corrosion or operational faults.
Wash the vehicle in bright sunlight or 

freezing temperatures.
Do not scrape off mud or dirt without 

Allow dirt to accumulate on the exterior.
Allow rust to form following minor im-

Do not use solvents not approved by 

our Technical Department to remove 

stains as this could damage the paint-

Do not drive in snow or muddy condi-

tions without washing the vehicle, par-

ticularly under the wheel arches and 


A well-maintained vehicle will last 

longer. It is therefore recommended to 

maintain the exterior of the vehicle reg-

Your vehicle has been treated with very 

effective anti-corrosion products. It is 

nevertheless subject to various outside 


Corrosive agents in the atmosphere


atmospheric pollution (built-up and 

industrial areas),


saline atmospheres (near the sea, 

particularly in hot weather),


seasonal and damp weather condi-

tions (e.g. road salt in winter, water 

from road cleaners, etc.).

Minor impacts

Abrasive action

Dust and sand in the air, mud, road grit 

thrown up by other vehicles, etc.
You should take a number of minor pre-

cautions in order to safeguard your ve-

hicle against such risks.


Respect local regulations about wash-

ing vehicles (e.g. do not wash your ve-

hicle on a public highway).
Observe the vehicle stopping distances 

when driving on gravelled surfaces to 

prevent paint damage.
Repair, or have repaired quickly, areas 

where the paint has been damaged, to 

prevent corrosion spreading.
Remember to visit the body shop pe-

riodically in order to maintain your 

anti-corrosion warranty. Refer to the 

Maintenance Document.
If it is necessary to clean mechani-

cal components, hinges, etc., spray 

them with products approved by our 

Technical Department to protect them 

after they have been cleaned.



We have selected special products 

to care for your vehicle and you can 

obtain these from the manufactur-

er’s accessory outlets.

Using a roller type car wash

Return the windscreen wiper stalk to 

the Park position (refer to the informa-

tion on the “Windscreen washer, wiper” 

in Section 1). Check the mounting of 

external accessories, additional lights 

and mirrors, and ensure that the wiper 

blades are secured with adhesive tape.

Remove the radio aerial mast if your 

vehicle is fitted with this equipment. 

Remember to remove the tape and refit 

the antenna after washing.

Cleaning the headlights

As the headlights are made of plastic 

“glass”, use a soft cloth or cotton wool 

to clean them. If this does not clean 

them properly, moisten the cloth with 

soapy water, then wipe clean with a soft 

damp cloth or cotton wool.

Finally, carefully dry off with a soft dry

Liquid stain
Use soapy water.
Dab lightly (never rub) with a soft cloth, 

rinse and remove the excess.

Solid or pasty stain
Carefully remove the excess solid or 

pasty material immediately  with a 

spatula (working from the edges to the 

centre to avoid spreading the stain).

Clean as for a liquid stain.

Special instructions for sweets or 

chewing gum
Put an ice cube on the stain to solidify 

it, then proceed as for a solid stain.

A well-maintained vehicle will last 

longer. It is therefore recommended to 

maintain the interior of the vehicle regu-

A stain should always be dealt with 

Whatever type of stain is on the trim, 

use cold (or warm) soapy water with 

natural soap.
Detergents (washing-up liquid, pow-

dered products, alcohol-based prod-

ucts) should not be used.
Use a soft cloth.
Rinse and soak up the excess.

For further recommendations for 

maintaining the interior, and/or for 

any unsatisfactory results, please 

see an authorised dealer.


You are strongly recom-

mended not to use high-

pressure or spray cleaning 

equipment inside the pas-

senger compartment: use of such 

equipment could impair the correct 

functioning of the electrical or elec-

tronic components in the vehicle, or 

have other detrimental effects.



You should not:

You are strongly advised not to po-

sition objects such as deodorants, 

scents, etc. near air vents, as this could 

damage your dashboard trim.

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 

With the vehicle stationary, always 

ensure that nothing will impede driving 

(anything obstructing the pedals, heel 

wedged by the mat etc.).


Jack 4

To use the jack, undo nut 2. When refit-

ting, fold the jack before placing it in its 


Tighten the nut to secure the jack.


Accessing the tools
The tools are located in the luggage 

compartment. The presence of the vari-

ous tools depends on the vehicle.
Unclip the flap  by placing your hand 

in the handle 1. Remove the flap.
After the using the tools, make sure you 

close the flap A. properly.

Wheelbrace 5

This is used to tighten/loosen the wheel 

bolts and, depending on the vehicle, to 

access the emergency spare wheel.

Hubcap tool 3

This tool is used to remove the wheel 





Do not leave the tools unsecured inside the vehicle as they may come 

loose under braking. After use, make sure the tools are correctly posi-

tioned in their housings: risk of injury.

If wheel bolts are supplied in the tool kit, only use these bolts for the 

emergency spare wheel: refer to the label affixed to the emergency spare wheel.

The jack is designed for wheel changing purposes only. Under no circumstances 

should it be used for carrying out repairs underneath the vehicle or to gain access 

to the underside of the vehicle.










Emergency spare wheel 4x2 

version (2WD)

This is placed in cage 4   underneath 

the vehicle.
To take out the emergency spare

– undo bolt 2 using wheelbrace 1 

(refer to the information on “Tools” in 

this section);

–  detach the holder 4 taking it by the 

handle 5 (example A) or depending 

on the vehicle, detach the holder 4 

(example B);

– remove the emergency spare 

wheel 3.

In the event of a puncture, 

depending on the vehicle, 

you will have:

An emergency spare wheel or tyre in-

flation kit (refer to the information on the 

following pages).

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.

To store the wheel in the cage:
–  Place the punctured tyre in the sub-

frame 4;

–  to return the holder 4 to its initial po-

sition, proceed in reverse order and 

tighten the bolt using the wheel-

–  fold the luggage compartment mat 6;
–  unscrew the central mounting 8;
– remove the emergency spare 

wheel 7.

Note: ensure that the emergency spare 

wheel or punctured wheel and the 

wheel tray are correctly positioned so 

that the luggage compartment carpet 

can be properly fitted.





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.

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.

Vehicles fitted with an emergency spare wheel which is different to 

the four 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-


–  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.




The kit is only approved 

for inflating the tyres of the 

vehicle initially fitted 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 hand-

ling the repair liquid bottle. If drop-

lets do leak out, rinse them off with 

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

Do not dispose of the empty bottle 

in the countryside. Return it to your 

approved dealer or to a recycling or-

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.



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 replacing a tyre repaired 

using this kit, you must inform the 

specialist. When driving, vibration 

may be felt due to the presence of 

the repair product injected into the 





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.




Before using this kit, park the vehicle at a sufficient distance from traffic, 

switch on the hazard warning lights, apply the handbrake, ask all passen-

gers to leave the vehicle and keep them away from traffic.






In the event of a puncture, use the kit C 

located in the luggage compartment in 

the 4x2 version or in the emergency 

spare wheel tray under the luggage 

compartment carpet in the 4x4 version.




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.

On 4x2 versions, unclip flap D.


For all vehicles, with the engine run-

ning and the handbrake applied,
–  unroll the hose from the container;
–  connect the compressor hose 3 to 

the container’s inlet 8;

–  depending on the vehicle, connect 

the container 8 to the compressor 

from the container recess 7

–  unscrew the valve cap on the rel-

evant wheel and screw on the con-

tainer’s inflation adapter 1;

–  disconnect any accessories previ-

ously connected to the vehicle’s ac-

cessories sockets;

– adapter 2 must be connected to the 

vehicle accessories socket;

– press switch 4 to inflate the tyre to 

the recommended pressure (please 

refer to the information in the section 

on “Tyre pressure”);

–  after a maximum of 15 minutes, stop 

inflating and read the pressure (on 

pressure gauge 5).

Note: while the container is empty-

ing (approximately 30 seconds), the 

pressure gauge 5 will briefly indicate 

a pressure of up to 6 bar. The pres-

sure will then drop.

– adjust the pressure: to increase 

it, continue inflation with the kit; to 

reduce it, press button 6.

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.

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.

Please be aware that a 

poorly tightened or missing 

valve cap can make the 

tyres less airtight and lead 

to pressure loss. Always use valve 

caps identical to the original ones 

and ensure they are tightly screwed 







Once the tyre is correctly inflated, 

remove the kit: slowly unscrew the in-

flation adapter 1 to prevent any repair 

product from escaping and store the 

container in plastic packaging to pre-

vent the product from escaping.
– 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 be-

tween 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 recommended 

pressure (refer to the label affixed to 

the edge of the driver’s door), read-

just it. Otherwise, please contact an 

authorised dealer: the tyre cannot be 


Precautions when using the 


The kit should not be operated for more 

than 15 consecutive minutes.


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.
