Closing the bonnet

Before closing the bonnet, make sure 

that nothing has been left in the engine 

compartment.
To close the bonnet, replace the stay

. Hold the middle of the  

bonnet and guide it down to one foot  

(30 cm) above the closed position, then  

release. It will latch automatically under  

its own weight.

After any procedure in the  

engine compartment, make  

sure that you do not forget  

anything (cloth, tools, etc.).

These may damage the engine or 

cause a fire.

Ensure that the bonnet is  

properly locked.

Check that nothing is pre- 

venting the catch from lock- 

ing (gravel, cloth, etc.).

In the event of even a slight 

impact involving the radi-

ator grille or bonnet, have 

the bonnet lock checked by 

an approved dealer as soon as pos-

sible.

A

B

It is normal for an engine to use oil for  

lubrication and cooling of moving parts  

and it is normal to top up the level be- 

tween oil changes.
However, contact your approved 

 

Dealer if more than 0.5 litres is being  

consumed every 600 miles (1 000 km)  

after the running in period.

Oil change frequency: check the oil  

level from time to time and certainly  

before any long journey to avoid the  

risk of damaging your engine.

Reading the oil level

The oil level should be read with the ve- 

hicle on level ground, after the engine  

has been switched off for some time.

The dipstick must be used to read  

the exact oil level and make sure that  

the maximum level has not been ex- 

ceeded (risk of engine damage).

Depending on the vehicle, the instru- 

ment panel display only alerts the driver  

when the oil level is at its minimum.

–  Remove the dipstick and wipe with a  

clean, lint-free cloth;

–  push the dipstick in as far as it will go  

(for vehicles equipped with a captype  

dipstick 

C

, screw the cap in as far as  

it will go);

–  take out the dipstick again;
– read the level: it should never fall  

below the “mini” mark 

A

 and never  

exceed the “maxi” 

B

 mark.

Once the operation has been com- 

pleted, ensure that the dipstick is  

pushed in as far as it will go or that  

the “cap-type dipstick” is completely  

screwed in.

Exceeding the maximum  

engine oil level

Under no circumstances  

should the maximum fill- 

ing level 

B

 be exceeded: this could  

damage the engine and anti-pollu- 

tion system. If the level exceeds the  

maximum level, 

do not start your  

vehicle

 and contact an authorised  

dealer.

Adding engine oil

Use a funnel or protect the  

filling neck area to avoid  

engine oil escaping onto a  

hot part of the engine compartment  

or a sensitive part (e.g. electrical  

components).

Fire hazard.

Engine oil level: topping up, filling

Topping up/filling

The vehicle must be parked on level  

ground and the engine should be cold  

(for instance, before the engine is  

started up for the first time in the day).

–  Unscrew cap

;

–  top up the level (capacity between 

“mini” and “maxi” of the gauge 

2

 and  

between 0.9 to 2 litres according to  

the engine);

–  wait for approximately 20 minutes to  

allow the oil to flow into the engine;

–  check the level using the dipstick 

2

 

(as described above).

Once the operation has been com- 

pleted, ensure that the dipstick is  

pushed in as far as it will go or that the

 does not require any mainte- 

nance. 

You should not open it or add  

any fluid.

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.

Please note when work- 

ing close to the engine that  

it may be hot. In addition,  

the engine cooling fan may  

start at any moment. The 

  

warning light in the engine compart- 

ment reminds you of this.

Risk of injury.

Before carrying out any  

action in the engine com- 

partment, you must switch  

off the ignition.

 2.6.

Depending on the vehicle, a system  

continuously checks the battery charge  

status. If this decreases, the “Battery  

Now In Standby Mode” message ap- 

pears on the instrument panel followed  

by “Battery Low Start Engine”. In this  

case, start the engine and the message  

on the instrument panel will disappear.

Note:

 the message “Battery Now In 

Standby Mode” may be displayed after 

5 to 30 minutes of vehicle use with the 

engine stopped to warn the user that 

power consuming functions (interior 

lighting, radio, navigation, ventilation, 

accessories power supply, etc.) may be 

automatically cut off.
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.

Bodywork maintenance

BODYWORK MAINTENANCE 

(1/3)

You should

Wash your car frequently, 

with the  

engine off

, with cleaning products rec- 

ommended by the manufacturer (never  

use abrasive products).
Rinse thoroughly 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.

A well-maintained vehicle will last  

longer.
It is therefore recommended to main- 

tain the exterior of the vehicle regularly.
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 (in 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.

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 an- 

ti-corrosion warranty.
Refer to the maintenance document.
If mechanical components, hinges, etc.  

have been cleaned, they must be pro- 

tected again by spraying with products  

approved by our Technical Department.

We have selected special products 

to care for your vehicle and you can 

obtain these from the manufactur- 

er’s accessory outlets.

BODYWORK MAINTENANCE 

(2/3)

Degrease or clean using  

high-pressure cleaning  

equipment or by spray- 

ing on products not ap- 

proved by our Technical  

Department:

–  

mechanical components (e.g.: 

 

engine compartment);

–  the wheels (e.g. braking system  

components such as brake calli- 

pers);

–   underbody;
–   parts with hinges (e.g.: inside the  

doors);

–   painted plastic external fittings (e.g.:  

bumpers).

Doing this could give rise to corrosion  

or operational faults.

What you should not do

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.

Vehicles with a matte paint  

finish

This type of paint requires certain pre- 

cautions.

You should do the following

Wash the vehicle by hand using plenty  

of water, using a soft cloth or a gentle  

sponge.

Do not do the following

Use wax-based products (polishing).
Rub too hard.
Wash the vehicle in a roller-type car  

wash.
Attach stickers to the paintwork (risk of  

leaving marks).

Wash the vehicle 

 

using a high-pressure  

cleaning device.

4.18

ENG_UD79892_4

Entretien de la carrosserie (peinture mate) (HJB - Renault)

 

Cleaning the headlights,  

sensors and cameras

Use a soft cloth or cotton wool.
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.

Do not use cleaning products con- 

taining alcohol or utensils (e.g.: a  

scraper).

vehicle is fitted with this equipment.
Check that the fuel filler flap is closed  

then lock the vehicle.
Remember to remove the tape and refit  

the antenna after washing.

Cleaning stickers, decorative  

films, etc.

You should do the following

Use a soft cloth or cotton wool.
Moisten it slightly with soapy water then  

always wipe clean with a soft cloth or  

cotton wool.
Finally, carefully dry off with a soft dry  

cloth.

Do not do the following

Use alcohol-based cleaning products.
Use utensils (e.g.: scraper).

(1/2)

For further recommendations for 

maintaining the interior, and/or for 

any unsatisfactory results, please 

see an authorised dealer.

A well-maintained vehicle will last 

longer. It is therefore recommended to 

maintain the interior of the vehicle reg-

ularly.
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.

Multimedia screen

Maintenance of the screen may depend  

on the type of multimedia equipment.  

Please refer to the multimedia instruc- 

tions for further information.

Glass instrument panel

(e.g. instrument panel, clock, exterior  

temperature 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.

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.

You should not:

Position objects such as deodorants,  

scents etc. near air vents as this could  

damage your dashboard trim.

Use high-pressure 

cleaning equipment or 

sprays inside the pas-

senger compartment: 

without careful use, this equipment  

could impair the correct functioning  

of the electrical or electronic compo- 

nents 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.).

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 de- 

vices as per the legislation applying to the country you are in.

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.

Vehicle fitted with an emergency spare wheel that differs from the 

other wheels:

–  Never fit more than one emergency spare wheel to the same vehicle.
–  Replace the emergency spare wheel as soon as possible with a wheel identi-

cal to the original one.

–  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.

TYRE PRESSURE KIT 

(1/3)

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 han- 

dling the repair product bottle. If  

droplets 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

TYRE PRESSURE KIT 

(2/3)

Depending on the vehicle, in the event 

of a puncture, use the kit located in the 

boot or underneath the luggage com-

partment carpet.

Vehicle fitted with a tyre pressure  

loss warning system

In the event of under-inflation (punc- 
tures, under-inflation etc.), the 

  

warning light appears on the instrument  

panel. 

 2.40. 

Engine running, handbrake applied:

– Disconnect any accessories previ- 

ously connected to the vehicle’s ac- 

cessories sockets;

– 

refer to the information on the in- 

flation kit compressor

 located in  

the luggage compartment of the ve- 

hicle and follow the instructions;

–  inflate the tyre to the recommended  

pressure 

 4.11 ;

–  after a maximum of 

15

 minutes, stop  

inflating and read the pressure (on  

pressure gauge 

2

).

Note:

 while the bottle is emptying  

(approximately 30 seconds), the  

pressure gauge 

2

 will briefly indicate  

a pressure of 

6

 bar, then the pres- 

sure drops;

–  Adjust the pressure: to increase it,  

continue inflation with the kit. To  

reduce it, press the button 

1

.

2

Before using this kit, park 

the vehicle at a sufficient 

distance from traffic, switch 

on the hazard warning 

lights, apply the handbrake, ask all 

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 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.

TYRE PRESSURE KIT 

(3/3)

Once the tyre is correctly inflated,  

remove the kit: unscrew the inflation  

adapter slowly from the container 

3

 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.

– Start immediately and drive at a  

speed between 12 to 37 mph (20 to 

60 km/h) in order to distribute the  

product evenly in the tyre; after driv- 

ing a distance of 2 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.

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.

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.

3

Please be aware that a 

poorly tightened or miss-

ing valve cap can make the 

tyres less airtight and may 

lead to pressure loss.

Always use valve caps identical to  

those fitted originally and tighten  

them fully.

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.
