Renault Scenic (2018 year). Instruction - part 19






From the exterior of the vehicle, stand 

the wheel up, pass the cable and the 

component 8 through the wheel rim and 

release the wheel.

To put the spare wheel back C
To carry out this operation, the cable 

must be unwound.
Stand the wheel up with the valve to-

wards you. Thread the cable and the 

component 8 through the wheel rim. Lie 

the wheel down with the valve towards 

the ground.



Reposition the blanking cover then the 

cover 7.
For vehicles fitted with a servo, replace 

the servo 5. Tighten the three screws 4.



From the luggage compartment, tighten 

the bolt fully in order to wind the retain-

ing cable, ensuring that the wheel re-

mains horizontal and the cable taut.

As the punctured wheel is wider than the emergency spare wheel, when 

you place the punctured wheel in the emergency spare wheel bay, the 

vehicle’s ground clearance is reduced. To prevent damage, proceed ca-

refully when driving over raised sections of road and when dismounting 

pavements 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. Replace the emergency spare wheel as soon as possible with a 

wheel with the same dimensions as the original.






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-

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 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.




Depending on the vehicle, in the event 

of a puncture, use the kit located in 

storage compartment C or underneath 

luggage compartment carpet D.

Before using the kit, park 

the vehicle at a sufficient 

distance from traffic, switch 

on the hazard warning 

lights, apply the parking brake, 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.



With the engine running and the 

parking brake applied,
–  connect the compressor hose 2 to 

the container’s inlet 7;

–  remove the cap from the container 

inflation adapter 1;

–  unscrew the valve cap on the rel-

evant wheel and screw on the con-

tainer’s inflation end piece 1;

–  disconnect any accessories previ-

ously connected to the vehicle’s ac-

cessories sockets;

–  the end piece 5 must be plugged in 

to the vehicle accessories socket;

3 4



– press the switch 3 to inflate the 

tyre to the recommended pressure 

(please refer to the information about 

“Tyre Pressures” in Section 4);

–  after a maximum of 15 minutes, stop 

inflating and read the pressure (on 

pressure gauge 4).
Note: while the bottle is emptying 

(approximately 30 seconds), the 

pressure gauge 4 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 button 6.





If the recommended pressure of 

1.8 bar cannot be achieved after 

15 minutes, repair is impossible. Do 

not drive the vehicle. Consult an au-

thorised 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.

Once the tyre is correctly inflated, 

remove the kit: unscrew the inflation 

adapter slowly from the container 1 to 

prevent any product spatter and store 

the container in plastic packaging to 

prevent product leaks.
– Affix the driving recommendation 

label (located under the container) to 

the dashboard where the driver can 

see it.

–  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 a 

speed of 12.4 to 37.2 mph (20 to 

60 km/h) in order to distribute the 

product evenly in the tyre; after driv-

ing a distance of 1.86 miles (3 km), 

stop and check the pressure.

–  If the pressure is higher than 1.3 bar 

but lower than the recommended 

pressure (refer to the label affixed to 

the edge of the driver’s door), adjust 

it. Otherwise, contact an approved 

dealer: the tyre cannot be repaired.


Precautions when using the 


The kit should not be operated for more 

than 15 consecutive minutes.
The container must be replaced after 

the first use even if liquid remains 




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.

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.




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 

If wheel bolts are supplied in the tool 

kit, you must use these bolts, and 

only these, 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.

The presence of the tools depends on 

the vehicle.

To put it back, fold the jack fully, then 

store it together with the other tools in 

the tool bag. Reposition the bag con-

taining the tools into its housing. Check 

that the assembly is correctly posi-

tioned (to avoid noise).



After use, reposition the bag 7 

against the partition and tighten the 

strap 8, pulling its free end towards 

the vehicle interior.



Wheel trim

Remove it using the hubcap tool 3 by 

connecting the hook in the recess pro-

vided next to the valve 1 (to attach the 

metal clip).
Note: if you are using anti-theft bolts, 

refer to the information on “Changing a 




To refit it, align it with the valve 1 and 

the wheel bolts 2. Push in the centre of 

the wheel trim to clip the centre section 

around the wheel bolts. Push in the re-

taining hooks located around the edge 

of the trim. Firmly push in the centre of 

the wheel trim again to ensure that the 

central clips locate correctly above the 

heads of the wheel bolts.
Note:  if your vehicle is fitted with anti-

theft bolts, always fix them in place of 

one of the wheel bolts 2.







Offer up the jack 1 horizontally; the 

jack head must be lined up with the 

sill, closest to the wheel concerned, as 

shown by arrow 2.
Start cranking the jack up by hand to 

align the base plate (which should be 

pushed slightly under the vehicle).
Turn the wheelbrace until the wheel lifts 

off the ground.

Vehicles equipped with a jack 

and wheelbrace

If necessary, remove the wheel trim.
Use the wheelbrace 3 to slacken off the 

wheel bolts. Position it so as to be able 

to push from above.

Switch on the hazard warn-

ing lights.
Keep the vehicle away from 

traffic and on a level surface 

where it will not slip.
Apply the parking brake and engage 

a gear (first or reverse, or P for auto-

matic transmissions).

Ask all the passengers to leave the 

vehicle and keep them away from 


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.

If the vehicle is not equipped with a 

jack or wheelbrace, you can obtain 

these from your authorised dealer.





Undo the bolts and take off the wheel.
Fit the emergency spare wheel onto 

the hub and rotate it until the mounting 

holes in the wheel coincide with those 

of the hub.
Tighten the bolts, checking that the 

wheel is correctly positioned on its hub 

and unscrew 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.

Anti-theft bolt
If you use anti-theft bolts, fit these 

nearest the valve (wheel embel-

lisher may not be able to fit).

If you have a puncture, re-

place the wheel as soon as 

A tyre which has been punc-

tured should always be inspected 

(and repaired, where possible) by a 





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.






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 

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


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-





Use in winter

For safety reasons, fitting snow 

chains to the rear axle is strictly for-

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-

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 


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 approved 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.

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
