Renault Talisman (2016 year). Instruction - part 17

 

 

5.6

Precautions when using the 

kit

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 

inside.

TYRE INFLATION KIT 

(4/4)

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 lead 

to pressure loss.
Always use valve caps identical to 

those fitted originally and tighten 

them fully.

Wheel trim

Remove using the hubcap tool 6 by 

connecting the hook in the recess pro-

vided next to the valve 8 (to secure the 

metal clip).
To refit the wheel trim, align it with 

valve  8. Push the retaining hooks in 

fully, starting with side A near the valve, 

followed by B and C, finishing at D op-

posite the valve.
Note: if you are using anti-theft bolts, 

refer to the information on “Changing a 

wheel”.

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.

Crank up the jack by hand at first to 

align the base plate (which should be 

inclined further inwards than the jack 

head).
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 2 to slacken off the 

wheel bolts. Position it so as to be able 

to push from above.
Place the jack 3 horizontally; the jack 

head must be lined up with the sill clos-

est to the wheel concerned, as shown 

by an arrow 1.

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 

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.

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.
If bolts are supplied with the emergency 

spare wheel, only use these bolts for 

the emergency spare wheel. Tighten 

the bolts, checking that the wheel is 

correctly positioned on its hub and un-

screw 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 

possible.
A tyre which has been punc-

tured should always be inspected 

(and repaired, where possible) by a 

specialist.

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.

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.

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 missing 

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.

5.13

TYRES 

(3/3)

For safety reasons, this 

operation must be carried 

out by a specialist.
Fitting different tyres may 

change your vehicle as follows:
–  it may mean that your vehicle no 

longer conforms to current regu-

lations;

–  it may change the way it handles 

when cornering;

–  it may cause the steering to be 

heavy;

–  It may affect the use of snow 

chains.

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.

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.

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.
