Renault Trafic (2018 year). Instruction - part 15




With the engine running and the 

parking brake applied,
–  unroll the hose from the container;
–  connect the compressor hose 3 to 

the container’s inlet 8;

–  depending on the vehicle, connect 

the container 8 to the compressor 

from the container recess 7;

–  unscrew the valve cap on the rel-

evant wheel and screw on the con-

tainer’s inflation adapter 1;






Once the tyre is correctly inflated, 

remove the kit: slowly unscrew the in-

flation adapter 1 to prevent any product 

spatter and store the container in plas-

tic packaging to prevent product leaks.

– Affix the driving recommendation 

label to the dashboard where it can 

easily be seen by the driver;

–  Store the kit in the toolkit and re-

insert it properly under the driver’s 


–  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 be-

tween 12 and 40 mph (20 and 

60 km/h) in order to distribute the 

product evenly in the tyre and, after 

driving for 2 miles (3 km), stop and 

check the pressure.

–  If the pressure is greater than 1.3 bar 

but less than the recommended 

pressure (refer to the label affixed to 

the edge of the driver’s door), read-

just it. Otherwise, please contact an 

authorised dealer: the tyre cannot be 



–  disconnect any accessories previ-

ously connected to the vehicle’s ac-

cessories sockets;

– adapter 2 must be connected to the 

vehicle accessories socket;

– press switch 4 to inflate the tyre to 

the recommended pressure (please 

refer to the information on “Tyre infla-

tion 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 indicate briefly 

a pressure of up to 6 bars, then the 

pressure drops.

– adjust the pressure: to increase 

it, continue inflation with the kit; to 

reduce it, press button 6.

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.






The tools included in the tool kit depend 

on the vehicle. The tool kit 2 is located 

under the driver’s seat. To remove it, 

move the seat forward and fold down 

the seatback (refer to the informa-

tion on the “Front seats” in Section 1). 

Unscrew the mounting screw 1 from the 

unit and swivel to extract.

Jack 3

Fold it correctly before refitting it in its 

housing (ensure that the wheelbrace is 

correctly positioned).

Wheel bolt anti-theft piece 4.



Hubcap tool 5

This tool is used to remove the wheel 


Offset wrench 6.

Wheelbrace 7

This locks and unlocks the wheel bolts 

and the emergency spare wheel holder.

Tow eye 8

Please see “Towing: breakdown recov-

ery” in Section 5.



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 position 

it correctly in its housing: there is a 

risk of injury.

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.

Nothing should be placed 

on the floor area in front of 

the driver as such objects 

may slide under the pedal 

during braking manoeuvres, thus 

obstructing its use.











Trim 9

Remove the wheel trim using hubcap 

tool  5 (located in the tool kit) by fit-

ting the hook into one of the openings 

around the edge of the wheel trim.
To refit it, align it with valve 10.
Push the retaining hooks in fully, start-

ing with side A near the valve, followed 

by B and C, finishing at D opposite the 


Trim 11

Remove using hubcap tool 5 (located in 

the tool kit) by engaging the hook in the 

opening near the edge of the trim.
To refit, position the five trim attach-

ments facing the five wheel attach-

ments and press hard in the middle of 

the trim to clip it to the wheel.














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 hand 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 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

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 position 

it correctly in its housing: there is a 

risk of injury.

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.




Loosen the wheel nuts and remove the 

Fit the emergency spare wheel in place 

on the central hub.
Tighten the nuts and lower the jack.
With the wheels on the ground, tighten 

the nuts fully and check if they are tight 

as quickly as possible.
Position the trim.

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

nearest the valve (otherwise it may 

not be possible to fit the wheel trim).


Remove the wheel trim (refer to the in-

formation on “Wheel trims” in Section 5).
Use the wheelbrace 1 to slacken off the 

wheel bolts. Position it so as to be able 

to push from above.


Insert the jack 2 horizontally; the jack 

head pin 3 should line up with the hole 

in the lower part of the bodywork near-

est the wheel concerned.
Begin to crank the jack so that the base-

plate is correctly positioned (it should 

be underneath the vehicle and aligned 

with the jack head).



When the tyre tread has been worn 

to the level of the warning strips, they 

become visible 2: it is then neces-

sary to replace your tyres because the 

tread rubber is now only 1.6 mm deep 

at most, resulting in poor road hold-

ing 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.

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 wear warning strips 

1 which are indicators moulded into 

the tread at several points.



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.

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.






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).

Pressures should be checked when the 

tyres are cold; ignore higher pressures 

which may be reached in hot weather 

or following a fast journey.

If tyre pressures cannot be checked 

when the tyres are cold, assume an in-

crease of 0.2 to 0.3 bar (or 3 PSI).
Never deflate a hot tyre.

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).

Vehicle fitted with a tyre pressure 

loss warning system
If underinflated (puncture, low pres-

sure, etc.), the warning light 


the instrument panel comes on, see 

“Tyre pressure loss warning system” in 

Section 2.

Changing wheels around

This practice is not recommended.

Emergency spare wheel

Refer to the information on the 

“Emergency spare wheel” and in-

structions on “Changing a wheel” in 

Section 5.

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.


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 recommend that these be fitted to 

all four wheels to ensure that your ve-

hicle retains maximum traction.
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 




Studded tyres
This type of equipment may only be 

used for a limited period and as laid 

down by local legislation.
It is necessary to observe the speed 

specified by current legislation.
These tyres must, at a minimum, be 

fitted to the two front wheels.

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.

17” wheels cannot be 

fitted with chains.
If you wish to fit snow 

chains, you must use spe-

cial equipment.
Consult an approved Dealer.

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 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-

Risk of loss of control of the ve-


Chains may only be fitted to tyres of the same size as those originally 

fitted to your vehicle.
Only certain chains can be fitted to tyres. Consult an approved Dealer.
