TYRE PRESSURE KIT 

(3/3)

Once the tyre is correctly inflated, 

remove the kit: slowly unscrew the in-

flation adapter 6 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 

repaired.

Precautions when using the 

kit

The kit should not be operated for more 

than 10 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.

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.

the jack head between the 2 jacking 

points 2 closest to the relevant wheel.

If the vehicle is not equipped with a 

jack or wheelbrace, you can obtain 

these from your approved dealer.

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.

5.10

If you have a puncture, re-

place the wheel as soon as 

possible.
A tyre which has been punc-

tured should always be inspected 

(and repaired, where possible) by a 

specialist.

CHANGING A WHEEL 

(2/2)

Turn it a few times to lift the wheel off 

the ground.
Undo the bolts and take off the wheel.
Fit the emergency spare wheel on the 

central hub and turn it to locate the 

mounting holes in the wheel and the 

hub.
Tighten the bolts, checking that the 

wheel is correctly positioned on its hub. 
Lower the jack.
With the wheel on the ground, tighten 

the bolts fully and have the tightness of 

the bolts checked and the emergency 

spare wheel pressure checked as soon 

as possible.

Do not leave the tools un-

secured inside the vehicle 

as they may come loose 

under braking. After use, 

check that all the tools are correctly 

clipped into the tool kit, then posi-

tion it correctly in its housing: 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 un-

derside of the vehicle.

5.11

TYRES 

(1/3)

Maintaining the tyres

The tyres must be in good condition 

and the tread form must have sufficient 

depth; tyres approved by our Technical 

Department have tread wear indica-

tors 1 which are indicators moulded 

into the tread at several points.

The tyres are the only contact between 

the vehicle and the road, so it is essen-

tial to keep them in good condition.

You must make sure that your tyres 

conform to local road traffic regulations.

When the tread has worn down to the 

wear warning strips, these strips will 

become visible 2: it is then necessary 

to replace your tyres because the tread 

rubber is now only 1.6 mm deep at 

most, resulting in poor road holding 

on wet roads.
An overloaded vehicle, long journeys 

by motorway, particularly in very hot 

weather, or continual driving on poorly 

surfaced minor roads will lead to more 

rapid tyre wear and affect safety.

Incidents which occur when 

driving, such as striking the 

kerb, may damage the tyres 

and wheel rims, and could 

also lead to misalignment of the 

front or rear axle geometry. In this 

case, have the condition of these 

checked by an approved dealer.

5.12

TYRES 

(2/3)

Tyre pressures

Adhere to the tyre pressures (including 

the emergency spare wheel). The tyre 

pressures should be checked at least 

once a month and additionally before 

any long journey (refer to the label af-

fixed to the edge of the driver’s door).

The pressures should be checked cold: 

ignore higher pressures which may be 

reached in hot weather or following a 

high speed journey.
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.

Special note

Depending on the vehicle, there may 

be an adapter which needs to be posi-

tioned on the valve before air is added.

Vehicle fitted with a tyre pressure 

monitoring system 
In cases of under-inflation (puncture, 

low pressure, etc.), warning light 

 

lights up on the instrument panel. 

Please refer to the information on the 

“Tyre pressure monitoring system” in 

Section 2.

Emergency spare wheel

Refer to the information on “Puncture” 

and “Changing a wheel” in Section 5.

Incorrect tyre pressures 

lead to abnormal tyre wear 

and unusually hot running. 

These are factors which 

may seriously affect safety and lead 

to:
–  poor road holding,
–  risk of bursting or tread separa-

tion.

The pressure depends on the load 

and the speed of use. Adjust the 

pressure according to the condi-

tions of use (refer to the label affixed 

to the edge of the driver’s door).

Please be aware that a 

poorly tightened or miss-

ing valve cap can make the 

tyres less airtight and lead 

to pressure loss.
Always use valve caps identical to 

those fitted originally and tighten 

them fully.

Changing a wheel
As the tyre pressure moni-

tor may take several min-

utes to correctly determine 

the positions of the wheels and the 

pressure values after driving, check 

the tyre pressures following any op-

eration.

5.13

TYRES 

(3/3)

Use in winter

Chains
For safety reasons, fitting snow 

chains to the rear axle is strictly for-

bidden.
Chains cannot be fitted 
to tyres which 

are larger than those originally fitted to 

the vehicle.
Snow or Winter tyres
We would recommend that these be 

fitted to all four wheels to ensure that 

your vehicle retains maximum adhe-

sion.
Warning: These tyres sometimes have 

a specific direction of rotation and a 

maximum speed index which may be 

lower than the maximum speed of your 

vehicle.

Snow chains may only be 

fitted to tyres of the same 

size as those originally 

fitted to your vehicle.

In all cases, we would recommend 

that you contact an authorised 

dealer who will be able to advise you 

on the choice of equipment which is 

most suitable for your vehicle.

Studded tyres
This type of equipment may only be 

used for a limited period and as laid 

down by local legislation. It is neces-

sary to observe the speed specified by 

current legislation.
These tyres must, at a minimum, be 

fitted to the two front wheels.

18” wheels and larger 

cannot be fitted with 

chains.
If you wish to use special 

equipment, consult an approved 

dealer.

Fitting new tyres

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 a speed capacity at 

least equal to the original tyres, 

or correspond to those recom-

mended by your authorised 

dealer.
Failure to heed these instructions 

could endanger your safety and 

affect your vehicle’s roadworthi-

ness.
Risk of loss of control of the ve-

hicle.
