LEVELS 

(2/3)

2

 Brake fluid

The level should be read with the engine  

switched off and on level ground. This  

should be checked frequently, and im- 

mediately if you notice even the slight- 

est loss in braking efficiency.

Replacement intervals

Refer to the Maintenance Document for  

your vehicle.

Topping up

After any operation on the hydraulic  

circuit, a specialist must replace the  

fluid. Only use fluids approved by our  

Technical Department (and taken from  

a sealed container).

Level 2

It is normal for the level to drop as the  

brake linings wear, but it must never  

drop lower than the 

“MINI” 

warning  

line.

If you wish to check the disc wear your- 

self, you should obtain the document  

explaining the checking procedure from  

our network or from the manufacturer’s  

website.

If there is an abnormal or repeated  

drop in the fluid level, please consult  

an authorised dealer.

The vehicle drive system  

in an electric vehicle uses  

a direct voltage of approxi- 

mately 400 volts.

This system can get hot during  

and after switching off the ignition.  

Observe the warning messages on  

the labels in the vehicle.
Any intervention or modification on  

the vehicle’s 400 V electrical system  

(components, cables, connectors,  

traction battery) is strictly prohibited.

The risk of serious burns or elec- 

tric shocks can lead to death.

The engine cooling fan may also  
start at any moment. The 

  

label in the engine compartment re- 

minds you of this.

Risk of injury.

Bodywork maintenance

BODYWORK MAINTENANCE 

(1/3)

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.

You should

Wash your car frequently, 

with the  

engine off

, with cleaning prod- 

ucts recommended by our Technical  

Department (never use abrasive prod- 

ucts). 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.

Withdraw the vegetable falls (resin, film  

etc.) from the vehicle regularly.

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.
Respect local regulations about wash- 

ing vehicles (e.g. do not wash your ve- 

hicle on a public highway).
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.

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)

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.

Degrease or clean using  

high-pressure cleaning  

equipment or by spray- 

ing 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);

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

doors);

–  the 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.
Using solvents not approved by our  

Technical Department to remove stains  

may damage the paintwork.
Do not drive in snow or muddy condi- 

tions without washing the vehicle, par- 

ticularly under the wheel arches and  

body.

Using a roller type car wash

Return the wiper stalk to the park po- 

sition. 

 1.109. Check the mounting of  

external accessories, additional lights  

and rear view mirrors, and ensure that  

the wiper blades are secured with ad- 

hesive 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.

BODYWORK MAINTENANCE 

(3/3)

Washing the vehicle

Never wash the engine 

 

compartment, the charging  

connection or the traction  

battery with a high-pressure jet.

This risks damaging the electric  

circuit.

Never wash the vehicle while it is  

charging.

Risk of electric shock and a risk  

to life.

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 using a soft damp cloth or cotton  

wool.

Finally, dry off carefully with a soft dry  

cloth.

Do not use cleaning products con- 

taining alcohol or utensils (e.g.: a  

scraper).

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.).

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.

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. 

 2.18. 

With the engine running and the 

parking brake 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 boot of the vehicle and follow the  

instructions;

–  Inflate the tyre to the recommended  

pressure 

 4.9;

–  After a maximum of 

15

 minutes, stop  

inflating and read the pressure (on  

pressure gauge 

2

);

Note:

 while the bottle is emptying (ap- 

proximately 30 seconds), the pressure  

gauge 

2

 will indicate briefly a pressure  

of 

6

 bar, then the pressure drops.

– Adjust the pressure: to increase  

it, continue inflation with the kit; to  

reduce it, press 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.

1

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.

Tyres (tyre and wheel safety, use in winter)

TYRES 

(1/4)

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

 

that 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 tyre tread has been worn to 

the level of the wear indicators, 

they 

become visible

 

2:

 it is

 then

 necessary 

to replace your tyres because the tread 

rubber is 

no more than 1.6 mm deep, 

resulting in poor roadholding 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.
