The following information applies to both the vehicle's front and rear seat belts.

• No adjustments may be made to the original component parts of the restraint system (belts, seats and their
mountings).
For special applications (e.g. fitting child seats) contact your RENAULT Dealer.

• Do not use devices which give any slack in the belts (e.g. clothes pegs, clips, etc.): a seat belt which is worn too loosely
risks causing injury in the event of an accident.

• Never wear the shoulder strap under the arm or behind the 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.

• Seat belts should be replaced after a serious accident. Likewise, replace your seat belts as soon as they show any signs
of wear.

• When refitting the rear seats, take care that the seat belts are correctly positioned so that they can be used correctly.

• If necessary, readjust the position and tightness of the belt.

• Make sure that the tongue is inserted into the appropriate buckle.

All of the warnings below are given so that the airbag 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 airbag inflates.

Warnings concerning the driver’s airbag


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

Warnings concerning the passenger airbag


• Do not attach or glue any objects (pins, badges, clock, telephone mounting, etc.) to the dashboard in the proximity of
the airbag housing.
• Nothing should be placed 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 be
sustained. As a general rule, keep all parts of the body (knees, hands, head, etc.) well away from the dashboard.
• The passenger airbags should be reactivated as soon as the child seat is removed, to ensure the protection of the front
passenger in the event of an impact.

A REAR-FACING CHILD/BABY SEAT MUST NOT BE FITTED TO THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT UNLESS THE
ADDITIONAL RESTRAINT SYSTEMS, I.E. THE PASSENGER AIRBAG, ARE DEACTIVATED. (Refer to the
information on Passenger Airbag Deactivation in Section 1).

ADDITIONAL MEANS OF RESTRAINT


WWW.MANUALS.WS
All the warnings below are given so that, if the airbag is activated, it is not obstructed in any way and also to prevent the
risk of serious injuries caused by items which may be dislodged when the airbag inflates.

The airbag is designed to complement the action of the seat belt. The airbags and seat belts are integral parts of
the same protection system. It is therefore essential to wear the seat belt at all times. If seat belts are not worn, the
occupants of the vehicle are exposed to the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident. The risk of minor
superficial injuries occurring when the airbag is deployed may also increase, although such minor injuries are
always possible with airbags.
If the vehicle should overturn or in the event of a rear impact, however severe, the pretensioners and airbags are not
always triggered. These systems may, however, be triggered by shocks to the vehicle underbody, e.g. from pavements,
potholes, stones, etc.

• No operations or modifications whatsoever are permitted on any part of the airbag system (electronic unit, wiring,
etc.) (such work must be carried out by qualified Renault Network personnel).

• To ensure that the system is in good working order and to avoid accidental triggering of the system which may cause
injury, only qualified RENAULT Network personnel may work on the airbag system.

• As a safety precaution, have the airbag system checked if your vehicle has been involved in an accident, is stolen or
broken into.

• When selling or lending the vehicle, inform the user of these points and hand over this handbook with the vehicle.

• When scrapping your vehicle, contact your RENAULT Dealer for disposal of the gas generator(s).

• No modifications may be made to the original component parts of the restraint system (belts and seats and
their mountings) fitted.

• Carefully follow the instructions for fitting provided by the manufacturer of the restraint system.

• Always avoid dressing the child in bulky garments and do not place any objects between the child and the restraint
system.

• The seat belt in the vehicle must be tight enough so that the child's seat is held in position securely. Check the tension
regularly.

• Never wear the belt under your arm or behind your back.

• The harness or belt should be taut and fitted to suit the child's size.

• Never allow your child to stand up or kneel on the seats while the vehicle is moving.

• Check that the child is in the correct position for the entire journey, particularly when they are asleep.

• Use the seat belts to hold the seat in position, even if it is not occupied. Otherwise, if an accident were to occur, it may
become dislodged and pose a risk to other vehicle occupants.

• Following a serious accident, check the seat belts or the ISOFIX seat mounting and replace the child seat.

• Never leave a child unsupervised in a vehicle, even if they are in a restraining device.

• Activate the rear door locks (if your vehicle is equipped with these).

• Make sure the child does not get out of the vehicle at the side where there is traffic.

• Set your children a good example - always wear your seat belt.

(Towing a caravan, boat, etc.)
WWW.MANUALS.WS
- 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 your RENAULT Dealer about any towing equipment. Under no
circumstances may the gross train weight (= maximum permissible all-up weight and weight towed) be exceeded.
- If your vehicle is already at full load (max. permissible all-up weight), the maximum speed must be limited to 60 mph
(100 km/h) and the tyre pressures 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 1000 metres and by an additional 10% for each 1000 metres thereafter.
