SEAT BELTS (3/3)
The following information applies to the vehicle’s front and rear seat belts.

– No modification may be made to the component parts of the restraint system (belts and seats and their mountings)
fitted originally.
– For special operations (e.g.: fitting child seats) contact an approved Dealer.
– Do not use devices which allow any slack in the belts (e.g. clothes pegs, clips, etc.): a seat belt which is worn too loosely
may cause injury in the event of an accident.
– Never wear the shoulder strap under your arm or behind your back.
– Never use the same belt for more than one person and never hold a baby or child on your lap with your seat belt around
them.
– The belt should never be twisted.
– Following an accident, have the seat belts checked and replaced if necessary. Always replace your seat belts as soon as
they show any signs of wear.
– When putting back the rear bench seat, take care that the seat belts are correctly positioned so that they can be used
properly.
– Make sure that the buckle is inserted into the appropriate catch.

1.26
METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS (4/4)
All of the warnings below are given so that the air bag is not obstructed in any way when it is inflated and also to prevent
the risk of serious injuries caused by items which may be dislodged when the air bag inflates.

Warnings concerning the driver’s air bag


– Do not modify the steering wheel or the steering wheel boss.
– Do not cover the steering wheel boss under any circumstances.
– Do not attach any objects (badge, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to the steering wheel boss.
– The steering wheel must not be removed (except by qualified personnel from our Network).
– When driving, do not sit too close to the steering wheel. Sit with your arms slightly bent (see the information on “Adjusting
your driving position” in Section 1). This will allow sufficient space for the air bag to deploy correctly and be fully effective.

Warnings concerning the passenger air bag


– Do not attach or glue any objects (badge, logo, clock, telephone holder, etc.) to the dashboard on or near the air bag.
– Do not place anything between the dashboard and the passenger (pet, umbrella, walking stick, parcels, etc.).
– The passenger must not put his or her feet on the dashboard or seat as there is a risk that serious injuries may occur. In
general, parts of the body should be kept away from the dashboard (knees, hands, head, etc.).
– The devices in addition to the front passenger seat belt should be reactivated as soon as a child seat is removed, to ensure
the protection of the passenger in the event of an impact.
A REAR-FACING CHILD SEAT MUST NOT BE FITTED TO THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT UNLESS
THE ADDITIONAL RESTRAINT SYSTEMS, I.E. THE PASSENGER AIR BAG, ARE DEACTIVATED.
(refer to Section 1 “Child safety: deactivating/activating the front passenger air bag”)

Warnings concerning the anti-submarining air bag


Do not let a child under the age of 12 sit in this seat. When triggered, the anti-submarining air bag may project objects left on
the seat base with a great deal of force.

1.28
Side protection devices
Side air bags
These air bags are fitted to the front
seats and are activated at the sides of
the seats (door side) to protect the oc-
cupants in the event of a severe side
impact.

Curtain air bags


These are air bags fitted along the sides
of the vehicle in the ceiling which trigger

to protect the passengers in case of a Warnings concerning the side air bag
severe side impact. – Fitting seat covers: seats equipped with an air bag require covers spe-
cifically designed for your vehicle. Contact an approved Dealer to find out
if these covers are available. The use of any covers other than those de-
signed for your vehicle (and including those designed for another vehicle) may
affect the operation of the air bags and reduce your protection.
– Do not place any accessories, objects or even pets between the seatback, the
door and the internal fittings. Do not cover the seatback with any items such as
clothes or accessories. This may prevent the air bag from operating correctly
or cause injury when the air bag is deployed.
– No work or modification whatsoever may be carried out on the seat or internal
fittings, except by qualified personnel from an approved dealer.
– The area between the rear bench seatback and the trim is the area of air bag
operation: no objects must be placed here.

1.29
Additional methods of restraint
All of the warnings below are given so that the air bag is not obstructed in any
way when it is inflated and also to prevent the risk of serious injuries caused
by items which may be dislodged when the air bag inflates.
The air bag is designed to complement the action of the seat belt. Both the
air bags and seat belts are integral parts of the same protection system.
It is therefore essential to wear seat belts at all times. If seat belts are not
worn, the occupants are exposed to the risk of serious injury in the event
of an accident. It may also increase the risk of minor superficial injuries occurring
when the air bag is deployed, although such minor injuries are always possible
with air bags.
If the vehicle should overturn or suffer a rear impact, however severe, the pre-
tensioners and air bags are not always triggered. Shocks to the underbody of the
vehicle, e.g. from pavements, potholes or stones, can all trigger these systems.
– No work or modification whatsoever may be carried out on any part of the air 1

Distance remaining until the next service (displayed in miles (kil-

narios are possible:
– range less than 900 miles (1,500 km) or one month: the
message “Service due in” is displayed accompanied by the
nearest term (distance or time);
– range equal to 0 miles (0 km) or date of service reached:
the message “service vehicle” is displayed accompanied by
warning light ©.
The vehicle requires a service as soon as possible.

Note: depending on the vehicle, the distance before a service changes according to driving style (frequent driving at low
speeds, door-to-door journeys, extensive use at idle speed, towing a trailer etc.). The distance remaining until the next service
can therefore decrease more quickly in some cases than the actual distance travelled.
Resetting the display after the service in accordance with the maintenance schedule.
The mileage before service must only be reset after a service which complies with the recommendations in the maintenance
schedule.
If you decide to change the oil more frequently, do not reset this data each time the oil is changed to avoid exceeding the re-
placement intervals for other parts in the maintenance schedule.
Special note: To reset the distance before service, press and hold one of the display reset buttons for approximately 10 seconds
until the display shows the mileage permanently.

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.

Vehicles fitted with an emergency spare wheel smaller than the four 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 with the same dimensions as the original.
– 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 cornering.
– If you need to use snow chains, fit the emergency spare wheel to the rear axle and check the tyre pressure.

Unbraked trailer weight 650
Permissible nose weight 75

Permissible load on the roof with the carrying device 80 kg (including the carrying device)

Towing weight (Towing a caravan, boat, etc.)


– It is important to comply with the towing weights, governed by local legislation in each country and, in particular, laid down in
the Road Traffic Regulations. Contact H33 about any towing equipment.
– When towing, under no circumstances may the total train weight (vehicle + trailer) be exceeded. However the following is
permitted:
– the Maximum permissible weight at the rear may be exceeded by no more than 15%,
– the maximum permissible all-up weight may be exceeded by no more than 10% or 100 kg (whichever occurs first).
In either case, the maximum speed of the towing assembly must not exceed 60 mph (100 km/h) and the tyre pressure must be
increased by 0.2 bar (3 PSI).
– The engine output and climbing capability are reduced with altitude. We recommend that the maximum load be reduced by 10%
at an altitude of 1,000 metres and by an additional 10% for each 1,000 metres thereafter.
