RENAULT ANTI-INTRUDER DEVICE (RAID)

Driver’s responsibility
If you decide to keep the 

doors locked when you are 

driving, remember that it 

may be more difficult for those as-

sisting you to gain access to the 

passenger compartment in the 

event of an emergency.

You can decide whether you want to 

activate this function.

To activate

With the ignition on, press switch 1 

for approximately 5 seconds until you 

hear a beep.

To deactivate

With the ignition on, press and hold 

switch 1 for approximately 5 seconds, 

until you hear a beep.

Operating principle

After the vehicle is started, the system 

automatically locks the doors once your 

speed reaches approximately 4 mph 

(7 km/h).
The door can be unlocked:
– by pressing the door unlocking 

button 1.

–  by opening a front door (vehicle sta-

tionary).

NB: If a door is opened or closed, it will 

automatically lock again when the vehi-

cle reaches a speed of 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 it has, switch the ignition off and on 

again and reactivate it.

The headrest is important 

for safety. Ensure that it is in

sition: the top of the head-

rest should be as close as possible

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.
Nothing should be placed on the 

floor (area in front of driver) as such 

objects may slide under the pedal

obstructing its use.

tion A. Check that it is correctly locked.

Heated seats

With the ignition on, press switch 2

senger air bag must be dis-

abled (see information on 

“Child safety: activating/deactivat-

ing the front passenger air bag” in 

Section 1).
Risk of serious injury caused by 

items resting on the seatback table 

which may be dislodged when the

The label (on the dashboard) and 

the markings (on the windscreen) 

remind you of these instructions.

Power Assisted Steering

Never drive with an inadequately 

charged battery.

Variable power assisted 

steering

The variable power assisted steering 

system is equipped with an electronic 

control system which alters the level of 

assistance to suit the vehicle speed.
Steering is made easier during parking 

manoeuvres (for added comfort) whilst 

the force needed to steer increases 

progressively as the speed rises (for 

enhanced safety at high speeds).

Adjusting the steering wheel 

height and depth

Pull lever 1 and place the steering 

wheel in the required position; push the 

lever beyond the point of resistance to 

lock the steering wheel in place.
Make sure that the steering wheel is 

correctly locked.

For safety reasons, only 

adjust the steering wheel 

when the vehicle is station-

ary.

STEERING WHEEL/POWER-ASSISTED STEERING

1

Never switch off the igni-

tion when travelling down-

hill, and avoid doing so in 

normal driving (assistance 

is not provided).

With the engine switched off, or if 

there is a system fault, it is still pos-

sible to turn the steering wheel. The 

force required will be greater.

1.32

Always wear your seat belt when trav-

elling in your vehicle. You must also 

comply with the legislation of the par-

ticular country you are in.

SEAT BELTS 

(1/5)

1

2

Incorrectly adjusted or 

twisted seat belts may 

cause injuries in the event 

of an accident.

Use one seat belt per person, 

whether child or adult.
Even pregnant women should wear 

a seat belt. In this case, ensure that 

the lap belt is not exerting too much 

pressure on the abdomen, but do 

not allow any slack.

Before starting, first adjust your driv-

ing position, then ask all occupants 

to adjust their seat belts to ensure 

optimum protection.

Adjusting your driving 

position

–  Sit well back in your seat (having 

first removed your coat or jacket). 

This is essential to ensure your back 

is positioned correctly;

–  adjust the distance between the 

seat and the pedals. Your seat 

should be as far back as possible 

while still allowing you to depress 

the clutch pedal fully. The seatback 

should be adjusted so that your arms 

are slightly bent when you hold the 

steering wheel;

–  adjust the position of your head-

rest. For the maximum safety, your 

head must be as close as possible to 

the headrest;

–  adjust the height of the seat. This 

adjustment allows you to select the 

seat position which offers you the 

best possible view;

  adjust the position of the steering 

wheel.

Adjusting the seat belts

Sit with your back firmly against the 

seatback.
Shoulder strap 1 should be as close as 

possible to the base of the neck but not 

on it.
Lap belt 2 should be worn flat over the 

thighs and against the pelvis.
The belt should be worn so that it is 

as close as possible to your body, i.e.: 

avoid wearing heavy clothing or keep-

ing bulky objects under the belts, etc.

Make sure that the rear bench seat 

is locked in position correctly so that 

the rear seat belts will operate effi-

ciently. Refer to the information on 

the “Rear bench seat: functions” in 

Section 3.

1.33

SEAT BELTS 

(2/5)

ß

Front seat belt reminder 

warning light

It lights up on the central display when 

the engine is started and, if the driv-

er’s seat belt is not fastened, the light 

flashes and a beep sounds for about 

2 minutes when the vehicle reaches a 

speed of about 9.92 mph (16 km/h).
Depending on the vehicle, this flashes if 

the front passenger seat belt is not fas-

tened.

Adjusting the height of the 

front seat belts

Move button 6 to select the position you 

require so that chest strap 1 is worn as 

described above.
Make sure that the seat belt is locked 

in position correctly after you have ad-

justed it.

Unlocking

Press button 4 and the seat belt will be 

rewound by the inertia reel. Guide the 

belt.

6

Locking

Unwind the belt slowly and smoothly 

and ensure that buckle 3 locks into 

catch 5 (check that it is locked by pull-

ing on buckle 3).
If the belt jams, allow it to return slightly 

before attempting to unwind it again.
If your seat belt is completely jammed, 

pull slowly, but firmly, so that just over 

3 cm unwinds. Allow it to return slightly 

before attempting to unwind it again.
If there is still a problem, contact an ap-

proved dealer.
