4.7

Replacement intervals
Refer to the Maintenance Document for 

your vehicle.

Checking intervals
Check the coolant level regularly
 

(very severe damage is likely to be 

caused to the engine if it runs out of 

coolant).
If the level needs to be topped up, only 

use products approved by our Technical 

Department which ensure:
–  protection against freezing;
–  anticorrosion protection of the coo-

ling system.

LEVELS 

(1/3)

Coolant

With the engine switched off and on 

level ground, the level when cold must 

be between the “MINI" and "MAXI" 

marks on coolant reservoir 1.
Top this level up when cold before it 

reaches the MIN mark.

No operations should be 

carried out on the cooling 

circuit when the engine is 

hot.

Risk of burns.

Consult your approved dealer at 

once if you notice an abnormal or 

repeated drop in any of the fluid 

levels.

The engine may be hot 

when carrying out opera-

tions in close proximity. In 

addition, the engine cooling 

fan can come on at any moment.
Risk of injury.

Before performing any 

action in the engine com-

partment, the ignition must 

be switched off by pressing 

the engine stop button (please see 

the information on “Starting, stop-

ping the engine” in Section 2).

4.8

LEVELS 

(2/3)

Brake fluid level

This should be checked frequently, and 

any time you notice even the slightest 

loss in braking efficiency.
The level should be read with the engine 

switched off and on level ground.

Level 2
It is normal for the level to drop as 

the linings become worn, but it should 

never drop below the “MINI” warning 

line.
If you wish to check the disc and drum 

wear yourself, you should obtain the 

document explaining the checking pro-

cedure from our network or from the 

manufacturer’s website.

Topping up
After any operation on the hydraulic cir-

cuit, a specialist must replace the fluid.
Only use fluids approved by our 

Technical Department (and taken from 

a sealed container).

Replacement intervals
Refer to the Maintenance Document for 

your vehicle.

The engine may be hot 

when carrying out opera-

tions in close proximity. In 

addition, the engine cooling 

fan can come on at any moment.

BATTERY 

(1/2)

1

Handle the battery with care 

as it contains sulphuric acid 

which must not come into 

contact with the eyes or 

skin. If it does, wash the affected 

area with plenty of cold water. If 

necessary, consult a doctor.
Ensure that naked flames, red hot 

objects and sparks do not come into 

contact with the battery as there is a 

risk of explosion.

Depending on the vehicle, a system 

continuously checks the battery charge 

status. If this decreases, the message 

“Battery low start engine” is displayed 

on the instrument panel. In this case, 

start the engine and the message on 

the instrument panel will disappear.
The charge status of your battery can 

decrease especially if you use your ve-

hicle:
–  for short journeys;
–  for driving in town;
–  when the temperature drops;
–  after extended use of energy-con-

suming devices (radio, etc.) with the 

engine switched off.

The engine may be hot 

during operations in close 

proximity. In addition, the 

engine cooling fan may 

start at any moment.
Risk of injury.

Battery 1 does not require any mainte-

nance. You should not open it or add 

any fluid.

Before performing any 

action in the engine com-

partment, the ignition must 

be switched off (please see 

the information on “Starting, stop-

ping the engine” in Section 2).

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.

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-

ness.
Risk of loss of control of the ve-

hicle.

4.14

BODYWORK MAINTENANCE 

(1/2)

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 

grime;

–  

mud in the wheel arches and under-

neath the body which forms damp 

patches;

–  

bird droppings, which cause a 

chemical reaction with the paint that 

rapidly discolours paintwork and 

may even cause the paint to peel 

off;

   wash the vehicle immediately to 

remove these marks since it is im-

possible to remove them by polish-

ing;

–  

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 

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

pacts.
Do not use solvents not approved by 

our Technical Department to remove 

stains as this could damage the paint-

work.
Do not drive in snow or muddy condi-

tions without washing the vehicle, par-

ticularly under the wheel arches and 

body.

A well-maintained vehicle will last 

longer. It is therefore recommended to 

maintain the exterior of the vehicle reg-

ularly.
Your vehicle has been treated with very 

effective anti-corrosion products. It is 

nevertheless subject to various outside 

influences.

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.

4.15

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.

BODYWORK MAINTENANCE 

(2/2)

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 

cloth.
Cleaning products containing alco-

hol must not be used.

Vehicles with a matte paint 

finish

This type of paint requires certain pre-

cautions.

Do not do the following
–  

use wax-based products (polishing);

–  

rub hard;

–  

wash the vehicle in a roller-type car 

wash;

–  

wash the vehicle using a high-pres-

sure device;

–  

attach stickers to the paintwork (risk 

of leaving marks).

You should do the following
Wash the vehicle by hand using plenty 

of water, using a soft cloth or a gentle 

sponge.

4.16

Glass instrument panel

(e.g. instrument panel, clock, exterior 

temperature display, radio display, etc.)
Use a soft cloth (or cotton wool).

If this does not clean them properly, 

use a soft cloth (or cotton wool) slightly 

moistened with soapy water and then 

wipe clean with another soft damp cloth 

or cotton wool.

Finally, carefully dry off with a soft dry 

cloth.
Do not use products containing alco-

hol and/or spray fluids on the area.

Seat belts

These must be kept clean.

Use products selected by our Technical 

Department (Approved outlets) or 

warm, soapy water and a sponge and 

wipe with a dry cloth.

Detergents or dyes must not be used 

under any circumstances.

INTERIOR TRIM MAINTENANCE 

(1/2)

Textiles (seats, door trim, etc)

Vacuum-clean the textiles regularly.

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-

larly.
A stain should always be dealt with 

swiftly.
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.

4.17

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.

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.

INTERIOR TRIM MAINTENANCE 

(2/2)

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 

components).
With the vehicle stationary, always 

ensure that nothing will impede driving 

(anything obstructing the pedals, heel 

wedged by the mat etc.).

PUNCTURE, EMERGENCY SPARE WHEEL

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.

Special note
The Tyre Pressure Monitor function 

does not check the emergency spare 

wheel (the wheel replaced by the emer-

gency spare wheel disappears from the 

instrument panel display).
Refer to the information on the “Tyre 

pressure monitoring system” in 

Section 2.

Emergency spare wheel

This is located in the luggage compart-

ment.

To access it:

– open the trunk lid.

– lift the boot carpet A. Depending on 

the vehicle, remove the carpet.

– unscrew the central mounting located, 

depending on the vehicle, under the 

jack, in an anti-clockwise direction.

– remove the tool kit.

– remove emergency spare wheel.

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 smaller than the 

four other wheels:

–  Never fit more than one emergency spare wheel to the same vehicle.

–  As the punctured wheel is wider than the emergency spare wheel, the vehicle’s 

ground clearance is reduced.

–  Replace the emergency spare wheel as soon as possible with a wheel with the 

same dimensions as the original.

–  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-

nering.

–  If you need to use snow chains, fit the emergency spare wheel to the rear axle 

and check the tyre pressure.

A

In case of puncture

Depending on the vehicle, a tyre infla-

tion kit or emergency spare wheel is 

provided (refer to the following pages).

5.3

TYRE INFLATION KIT 

(1/4)

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 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-

dren.
Do not dispose of the empty bottle 

in the countryside. Return it to your 

approved dealer or to a recycling or-

ganisation.
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.

A

B

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.

5.4

TYRE INFLATION KIT 

(2/4)

In the event of a puncture, use the kit 

located under the trunk carpet 1.

With the engine running and the 

parking brake applied,
–  connect the compressor hose 3 to 

the container’s inlet 8;

–  remove the cap from the container 

inflation adapter 2;

–  unscrew the valve cap on the rel-

evant wheel and screw on the con-

tainer’s inflation end piece 2;

–  disconnect any accessories previ-

ously connected to the vehicle’s ac-

cessories sockets;

–  the end piece 6 must be plugged in 

to the vehicle accessories socket;

4 5

2

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.

8

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.

– press the switch 4 to inflate the 

tyre to the recommended pressure 

(please refer to the information about 

“Tyre Pressure” in section 4);

–  after a maximum of 15 minutes, stop 

inflating and read the pressure (on 

pressure gauge 5).
Note: While the bottle is emptying 

(approximately 30 seconds), the 

pressure gauge 5 will briefly indicate 

a pressure of 6 bar, then the pres-

sure will drop.

– adjust the pressure: to increase 

it, continue inflation with the kit; to 

reduce it, press the button 7.

5.5

TYRE INFLATION KIT 

(3/4)

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.

Once the tyre is correctly inflated, 

remove the kit: slowly unscrew the in-

flation end piece of the container 2 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.

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.

2

– 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.
