AUTOMATIC LOCKING WHEN DRIVING (RAID)

Operating principle

When the engine is started, the system 

automatically locks the doors when the 

vehicle reaches a speed of approxi-

mately 4 mph (7 km/h).

Operating faults

If you notice an operating fault (auto-

matic locking impossible), first check 

that all doors are correctly locked. If 

they are correctly locked and the fault 

is still present, contact an approved 

Dealer.
Also make sure that locking has not 

been inadvertently deactivated.
If necessary, refer to the activation pro-

cedure.

Heated seats 

With the engine running, activate 

switch 5; a warning light comes on.

To tilt the seatback

Depending on the seat, lower or lift 

lever 2 and tilt the seatback until it 

reaches the required position.

To move forwards or 

backwards

Depending on the seat, lift bar 1 or 

handle  4 to release it. Release the 

handle at the desired position and 

make sure that it is locked.

Adjusting the height of the 

driver’s seat

Move lever 3 as many times as neces-

sary:
–  upwards to raise the seat,
–  downwards to lower the seat.

For safety reasons, carry out any adjustments when the vehicle is not 

being driven.
We would advise you not to recline the seatbacks too far to ensure that 

the effectiveness of the seat belts is not reduced.

Make sure that the seatbacks are correctly locked in place.
Nothing should be placed on the floor (area in front of driver) as such objects may 

slide under the pedal during braking manoeuvres, thus obstructing its use.

Operating faults

(depending on vehicle)
If the sliding side door does not work, 

lower handle 6, hold it while the seat-

back tilts and slide the seat forwards.
To place the seat into the comfort posi-

tion, slide it rearwards.

Adjust the seat and make sure that it is 

correctly locked.

To avoid all risk of injury, 

ensure that nobody is in 

the proximity of the moving 

parts. When moving the 

seat, make sure that nothing inter-

feres with the moving parts and their 

locking.

For safety reasons, carry 

out any adjustments when 

the vehicle is not being 

driven.

ROOF FLAP 

(1/2)

Driving with the roof flap 

open may be unpleasant 

for passengers because 

exhaust gas may enter the 

passenger compartment. This use 

is solely for short distances, or for 

transporting bulky objects with-

out having to open the rear doors. In 

this case, close the other windows 

and operate the ventilation system 

at the half or fully open setting

as this will help to prevent exhaust 

fumes from entering the passenger 

compartment.

Transverse bar

When loading bulky objects, the trans-

verse bar may be moved:
–  Press the handle 3;
–  lift the bar all the way to the door 

pillar;

–  lock the bar after loading.

To open:

–  Unlock the control 2, the roof flap lifts 

automatically (make sure that noth-

ing prevents the flap from opening. 

In this case, use the handle 1 to help 

raise it);

–  when the roof flap is open, it must 

be locked by pushing it towards the 

front of the vehicle until the control 2 

locks.

Important: It is prohibited to drive with 

the roof flap open and unlocked.

Note: When driving with the roof flap 

open, you may hear wind noise. To 

reduce these, open one of the side win-

dows slightly.

1.32

ROOF FLAP 

(2/2)

Before starting, always reposition 

the transverse bar and ensure it is 

correctly locked.
The rear hinged doors can only be 

closed with the bar locked.
Remember that the overall vehicle 

dimensions may change when you 

are transporting bulky objects.

1 2

To close:

–  Unlock the control 2, the roof flap au-

tomatically opens halfway;

–  pull the handle 1 and lock the roof 

flap in the closed position.

1.33

To rotate the partition

– Unlock the seat base by moving 

handle 1 downwards;

–  lift the front passenger seat base 

vertically (arrow);

– lower headrest 2 to its lowest setting;
– unlock the seatback by moving 

handle 1 downwards again and po-

sition the seatback horizontally. To 

make the manoeuvre easier, rotate 

the headrest 2 ;

–  Pivot the moving section 90 degrees, 

lock it at point 5 and lower catch 3.

Note: before refitting the swivelling 

section in its original position, check 

that locking point 4 is clean.

–  unlock the swivelling section by lift-

ing catch 3;

–  reposition the seat base, proceeding 

in reverse order.

The swivelling section must 

always be locked when the 

vehicle is driven. Risk of 

injury.

SWIVELLING PARTITION

When moving the swivelling parti-

tion, ensure the seat belt is not dam-

aged. Hold it aside when you rotate 

the partition.
