TOWING: breakdown 

(1/2)

Before towing, put the gearbox in neu-

tral, unlock the steering column and re-

lease the parking brake.

For vehicles fitted with an automatic 

gearbox, if it is not possible to put the 

gear lever into position N, please con-

sult an authorised dealer.

Steering column unlocking
Insert the key into the ignition or, de-

pending on the vehicle, with the 

RENAULT card on you, press the 

engine start button for approximately 

2 seconds.

Reposition the lever to neutral (posi-

tion N for vehicles fitted with an auto-

matic gearbox).

The steering column unlocks, the ac-

cessory functions are powered: you 

can use the vehicle’s lights (direction 

indicators, brake lights, etc.). At night 

the vehicle must have its lights on.

Depending on the vehicle, once you 

have finished towing, press the engine 

start button twice (risk of running down 

the battery).

The speed specified by current legis-

lation for towing must always be ob-

served. If your vehicle is the towing 

vehicle, do not exceed the maximum 

towing weight for your vehicle (refer to 

the information on “Weights” in 

Section 6).

Towing a vehicle with an 

automatic gearbox

Transport the vehicle on a trailer or tow 

it with the front wheels off the ground.
In exceptional circumstances, you 

may tow it with all four wheels on the 

ground, only in a forward gear, with the 

gear lever in neutral position N over a 

maximum distance of 50 miles (80 km) 

and at a maximum speed of 16 mph 

(25 km/h).

When activated, in the event that the 

lever is stuck in P, depress the brake 

paddle. It is possible to free the lever 

manually. To do this, unclip the base of 

the lever, then insert a tool (rigid rod) 

into the slot 2 (located on the right of 

the lever) and press simultaneously on 

the button 1 to unlock the lever.
Contact an authorised dealer as soon 

as possible.

TOWING : breakdown 

(2/2)

Only use the front 3 and rear towing 

points (never use the driveshafts or any 

other part of the vehicle). These towing 

points may only be used for pulling. 

They must never be used for lifting the 

vehicle directly or indirectly.

Access to towing points

Front towing point
Press zone A and keep depressed 

while pulling zone B to open flap 4.
Rear towing point

Press zone C and keep depressed 

while pulling zone D to open flap 6.
Tighten the towing hitch 5 fully: first 

by hand until it stops then finish by lock-

ing it with the wheel brace.

Do not leave the tools unse-

cured inside the vehicle as 

they may come loose under 

braking.

Use the towing hitch 5 only (refer to the 

information on “Tools” in Section 5).

– Use a rigid towing bar. 

If a rope or cable is used 

(where the law allows this), 

the vehicle being towed 

must be able to brake.

–  A vehicle must not be towed if it is 

not fit to be driven.

– Avoid accelerating or braking 

suddenly when towing, as this 

may result in damage being 

caused to the vehicle.

–  In all cases, it is advisable not to 

exceed 15.5 mph (25 km/h).

When the engine is 

stopped, steering and brak-

ing assistance are not op-

erational.

* Towing weight (Towing a caravan, boat, etc.)
Towing is prohibited when the MTR - MMAC calculation is equal to zero, or when the MTR is equal to zero (or is not listed) on the 

identification plate.

–  It is important to comply with the towing weights, governed by local legislation in each country and, in particular, laid down in 

the Road Traffic Regulations. Contact an approved Dealer about any towing equipment.

–  For vehicles fitted with a trailer, the total train weight (vehicle + trailer) must never be exceeded. However, for vehicles with 

a long chassis, the following conditions are permitted:

–  rear axle MMTA exceeded by no more than 15%,

–  maximum MMAC exceeded by no more than 10% or 100 kg (whichever is reached first).

  In either case, the maximum speed of the vehicle and trailer must not exceed 60 mph (100 km/h) and the tyre pressures must 

be increased by 0.2 bar (3 PSI).

–  The engine output and climbing capability are reduced with altitude. You need to reduce the total train weight by 10% at an al-

titude of 1,000 metres and by an additional 10% for each 1,000 metres thereafter.

Weight transfer

If the Maximum Authorised Mass of the vehicle has not been reached, up to 350 kg can be transferred to the braked trailer, within 

the limits of the Gross Train Weight.
