Driving

Manoeuvring aids cannot, in any 

circumstances, replace the need for 

vigilance on the part of the driver.

The driver must always check the 

surroundings of the vehicle before and during 

the whole manoeuvre, in particular using the 

mirrors.

Refuelling

Fuel tank capacity: 30 litres.

Reserve level: approximately 5 litres.

Low fuel level

When the low fuel level is reached, this 

warning lamp comes on on the instrument 

panel, accompanied by an audible signal. When 

it first comes on, 

about 5 litres

 of fuel remain.

Until sufficient fuel is added, this warning lamp 

appears every time the ignition is switched on, 

accompanied by an audible signal. When driving, 

the audible signal are repeated with increasing 

frequency as the fuel level drops towards 

0

.

You must refuel as soon as possible to avoid 

running out of fuel.

Refuelling

Additions of fuel must be of at least 5 litres, in 

order to be registered by the fuel gauge.

Opening the filler cap may create a noise caused 

by an inrush of air. This vacuum is entirely 

normal, resulting from the sealing of the fuel 

system.

To refuel in complete safety:

► 

You must switch off the engine.

 

 

►  Lift the fuel filler flap lever, located on the 

floor beside the driver's seat, to open the flap.

►  Take care to select the pump that delivers the 

correct fuel type for the vehicle's engine (see a 

reminder label on the inside of the filler flap).

 

 

►  Turn the filler cap to the left and remove it.

►  Introduce the filler nozzle and push it in as 

far as possible before starting to refuel (risk of 

blowback).

►  Fill the tank.

Do not continue past the first cut-off of the 

nozzle, as this may cause malfunctions.

►  Refit the filler cap.

►  Turn it to the right.

►  Push the filler flap to close it.

If you have put in wrong/dirty/

contaminated fuel or H2O mixed fuel in 

the vehicle, you must have the fuel tank 

drained and filled with the correct fuel before 

starting the engine.

Contact a CITROËN dealer for the fuel 

system cleaning.

The vehicle is fitted with a catalytic converter, a 

device which helps to reduce the level of harmful 

emissions in the exhaust gases.

You must use unleaded fuel.

The filler neck is narrower, admitting unleaded 

petrol nozzles only.

Fuel cut-off

Your vehicle is equipped with a safety device 

which cuts off the fuel supply in the event of a 

collision.

Bonnet

When the engine is hot, handle the 

exterior safety catch and the bonnet stay 

with care (risk of burns), using the protected 

area.

When the bonnet is open, take care not to 

damage the safety catch.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

36

Practical information

Do not open the bonnet under very windy 

conditions.

Cooling of the engine when stopped

The engine cooling fan may start after 

the engine has been switched off.

Take care with objects or clothing that 

could be caught in the blades of the fan!

Water washing in the engine 

compartment including high pressure 

water washing may cause the failure of 

electrical circuits located in the engine 

compartment.

Never allow water or other liquids to come in 

contact with electrical/electronic components 

inside the vehicle as this may damage them.

Opening

 

 

►  Pull the release lever towards you.

 

 

►  Lift the safety catch and raise the bonnet.

 

 

►  Unclip the stay from its housing and place it 

in the support slot to hold the bonnet open.

Closing

►  Take the stay out of the support slot.

►  Clip the stay in its housing.

►  Lower the bonnet and release it near the end 

of its travel.

►  Pull on the bonnet to check that it is locked 

correctly.

Checking levels

Check all of the following levels regularly in 

accordance with the manufacturer's service 

schedule. Top them up if required, unless 

otherwise indicated.

If a level drops significantly, have the 

corresponding system checked by a CITROËN 

dealer.

The fluids must comply with the 

manufacturer's requirements and with 

the vehicle's engine.

Take care when working under the 

bonnet, as certain areas of the engine 

may be extremely hot (risk of burns) and the 

cooling fan could start at any time (even with 

the ignition off).

Used products

Avoid prolonged contact of used oil or 

fluids with the skin.

Most of these fluids are harmful to health and 

very corrosive.

Do not discard used oil or fluids into 

sewers or onto the ground.

Empty used oil into the containers reserved 

for this purpose at a CITROËN dealer.

Engine oil

The level is checked, with the engine 

having been switched off for at least 30 

minutes and on level ground, using the dipstick.

To know how often the engine oil should be 

replaced, refer to the manufacturer's servicing 

schedule.

In order to maintain the reliability of the 

engine and emissions control system, 

never use additives in the engine oil.

Checking using the dipstick

For the location of the dipstick, please refer 

to the illustration of the corresponding engine 

compartment.

►  Grasp the dipstick by its coloured grip and 

pull it out completely.

►  Wipe the end of the dipstick using a clean, 

lint-free cloth.

 

 

►  Reinsert the dipstick and push fully down, 

then pull it out again to visually check the oil 

level: the correct level is between marks 

A

 (max) 

and 

B (min).

Do not start the engine

 if the level is:

–  above mark 

A

: contact a CITROËN dealer.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

38

Practical information

–  below mark 

B

: top up the engine oil 

immediately.

Oil grade

Before topping up or changing the engine 

oil, check that the oil is suitable for the engine 

and complies with the recommendations in 

the service schedule supplied with the vehicle 

(or available from your CITROËN dealer).

Use of non-recommended oil may invalidate 

the contractual warranty in the event of 

engine failure.

Topping up the engine oil level

For the location of the engine oil filler cap, please 

refer to the corresponding under-bonnet engine 

compartment illustration.

►  Add oil in small quantities, avoiding any spills 

on engine components (risk of fire).

►  Wait a few minutes before checking the level 

again using the dipstick.

►  Top up the level if necessary.

►  After checking the level, carefully screw the 

oil filler cap back on and replace the dipstick in 

its tube.

Within 30 minutes of adding oil, the oil 

level indication in the instrument panel 

when the ignition is switched on is not valid. 

Brake

 fluid

The level of this fluid should be close to 

the "

MAX

" mark. If not, check the leakage 

in the circuit and the brake pad wear.

To know how often the brake fluid should be 

replaced, refer to the manufacturer's servicing 

schedule.

Clean the cap before removing it to refill. 

Use only DOT3 or DOT4 brake fluid from 

a sealed container.

Engine coolant

It is normal to top up this fluid between 

two services.

The check and top-up must only be done with 

the engine cold.

A low level presents a risk of serious damage to 

the engine.

The level of engine coolant should be close to 

the "

MAX

" mark but should never exceed it.

If the level is close to or below the "

MIN

” mark, it 

is essential to top up.

When the engine is hot, the temperature of 

engine coolant is regulated by the fan.

As the cooling system is pressurised, wait at 

least one hour after switching off the engine 

before carrying out any work.

In order to avoid the risk of burning, if you need 

to top up in an emergency, wrap a cloth around 

the cap and unscrew the cap by two turns to 

allow the pressure to drop.

Once the pressure has dropped, remove the cap 

and top up to the required level.

Screenwash fluid

Top up to the required level when 

necessary.

Fluid specification

The fluid must be topped up with a ready-to-use 

mixture.

In winter (temperatures below zero), a liquid 

containing an agent to prevent freezing must 

be used which is appropriate for the prevailing 

conditions, in order to protect the elements of the 

system (pump, tank, ducts, jets, etc.).

Filling with pure water is prohibited under 

all circumstances (risk of freezing, 

limestone deposits, etc.).

Checks

Unless otherwise indicated, check these 

components in accordance with the 

manufacturer's service schedule.

Otherwise, have them checked by a CITROËN 

dealer.

Only use products recommended by 

CITROËN.

In order to optimise the operation of 

components as important as those in the 

braking system, CITROËN selects and offers 

very specific products.

12 V battery

Check regularly during service that the 

terminals and coin plug caps are clean 

and tightened. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

40

Practical information

The battery electrolyte must be filled. If the level 

is found to be below the “MIN” level line, add 

distilled water to the “MAX” level line. 

For more information on the precautions 

to take before any work on the 

12 V 

battery

, refer to the corresponding section.

Passenger compartment 

filter

Depending on the environment and the 

use of the vehicle (e.g. dusty atmosphere, 

city driving), 

change it twice as often, if 

necessary

.

A clogged passenger compartment filter 

can adversely affect air conditioning 

system performance and generate 

undesirable odours.

Air filter

Depending on the environment and the 

use of the vehicle (e.g. dusty atmosphere, 

city driving), 

change it twice as often, if 

necessary

.

Oil filter

Change the oil filter each time the engine 

oil is changed.

Manual gearbox

The gearbox does not require any 

maintenance (no oil change).

Brake pads

Brake wear depends on the style of 

driving, particularly in the case of vehicles 

used in town, over short distances. It may be 

necessary to have the condition of the brakes 

checked, even between vehicle services.

Unless there is a leak in the circuit, a drop in the 

brake fluid level indicates that the brake pads 

are worn.

After washing the vehicle, moisture, or in 

wintry conditions, ice can form on the 

brake discs and pads: braking efficiency may 

be reduced. Gently dab the brakes to dry and 

defrost them.

Brake disc and drum wear

For information on checking brake disc 

and drum wear, contact a CITROËN 

dealer.

Wheels and tyres

The inflation pressure of all tyres, 

including the spare wheel, must be 

checked on "cold” tyres.

The pressures indicated on the tyre pressure 

label are valid for "cold" tyres. If you have driven 

for more than 10 minutes or more than 10 

kilometres at over 50 km/h, add 0.3 bar (30 kPa) 

to the values indicated on the label.

Under-inflation increases fuel 

consumption. Non-compliant tyre 

pressure causes premature wear on tyres and 

has an adverse effect on the vehicle's road 

holding - risk of an accident!

Driving with worn or damaged tyres reduces the 

braking and road holding performance of the 

vehicle. It is recommended to regularly check the 

condition of the tyres (tread and sidewalls) and 

wheel rims as well as the presence of the valves.

When the wear indicators no longer appear set 

back from the tread, the depth of the grooves is 

less than 1.6 mm; it is imperative to replace the 

tyres.

Using different size wheels and tyres from those 

specified can affect the lifetime of tyres, wheel 

rotation, ground clearance, the speedometer 

reading and have an adverse effect on road 

holding.

Fitting different tyres on the front and rear axles 

can cause ABS and EBFD systems to mistime.

Shock absorbers

It is not easy for drivers to detect when 

shock absorbers are worn. Nevertheless, 

the shock absorbers have a major impact on 

road-holding and braking performance.

For your safety and driving comfort, it is 

important to have them regularly checked by a 

CITROËN dealer.

Timing and accessory kits

Timing and accessory kits are used from 

the time the engine is started until it is 

switched off. It is normal for them to wear over 

time.

A faulty timing or accessory kit can damage 

the engine, rendering it unusable. Observe the 

recommended replacement frequency, stated in 

distance travelled or time elapsed, whichever is 

reached first. 

Advice on care and 

maintenance

General recommendations

Observe the following recommendations to avoid 

damaging the vehicle.

Exterior

Never use a high-pressure jet wash in 

the engine compartment - risk of 

damaging the electrical components!

Do not wash the vehicle in bright sunshine or 

extremely cold conditions.

When washing the vehicle in an 

automatic roller-brush car wash, be sure 

to lock the doors.

When using a pressure washer, hold the 

lance at least 30 cm from the vehicle 

(particularly when cleaning areas containing 

chipped paint, sensors or seals).

Promptly clean up any stains containing 

chemicals liable to damage the vehicle's paint 

(including tree resin, bird droppings, insect 

secretions, pollen and tar).

If justified by the environment, clean the 

vehicle more frequently to remove salty 

deposits (in coastal areas), soot (in industrial 

areas) and mud (in wet or cold areas). These 

substances can be highly corrosive.

Contact a CITROËN dealer for advice on 

removing stubborn stains requiring special 

products (such as tar or insect removers).

Preferably, have paint touch-ups performed 

by a CITROËN dealer.

The versions provided with roof rails are 

not designed for fitting roof racks. It is 

only for aesthetic factor. 

Do not apply loads on the roof rails. 

Interior

When washing the vehicle, never use a 

water hose or high-pressure jet to clean 

the interior.

Liquids carried in cups or other open 

containers can spill, presenting a risk of 

damage if they come into contact with the 

controls in the dashboard and centre console. 

Be vigilant!

Bodywork

High-gloss paint

Do not use abrasive products, solvents, 

petrol or oil to clean the bodywork.

Never use an abrasive sponge to clean 

stubborn stains - risk of scratching the 

paintwork!

Do not apply polish in strong sunshine, or to 

plastic or rubber parts.

Use a soft cloth and soapy water or a pH 

neutral product.

Gently wipe the bodywork with a clean 

microfibre cloth.

Apply polish with the vehicle clean and dry.

Comply with the instructions for use stated on 

the product.

After changing a wheel

The temporary spare wheel is only 

intended for temporary emergency use, 

until the conventional wheel can be repaired 

or replaced.

Continuous use of this spare can result in tire 

failure and loss of control. Always observe 

these precautions when using this spare:

–  Your vehicle will respond differently with 

this temporary spare.

–  Do not exceed 80 km/h speed.

–  Replace this spare with a standard tire and 

wheel as soon as possible.

–  Use of this spare will reduce ground 

clearance.

–  Set the specified tire pressure indicated 

on the tire information label located on the 

driver's door lock pillar.

–  Do not use tire chains on the temporary 

spare. If you must use tire chains, rearrange 

the wheels so standard tires and wheels are 

fitted to the front axle.

–  The temporary spare wheel has a much 

shorter tread life than the conventional wheels 

on your vehicle. Replace the tire as soon as 

possible as the tread wear indicator appears.

The inflation pressure of the temporary spare 

wheel should be checked at least monthly. At 

the same time, check that the tire is stored 

securely. If it is not, tighten it.

Note that two or more temporary spare 

wheels should not be used on one vehicle 

simultaneously.

Changing a bulb

In some weather conditions (e.g. low 

temperature or humidity), misting on the 

internal surface of the glass of the headlamps 

and rear lamps is normal, and will disappear 

after the lamps have been on for a few 

minutes.

The headlamps have polycarbonate 

lenses with a protective coating:

– 

Do not clean them with a dry or abrasive 

cloth, nor with detergent or solvent 

products.

–  Use a sponge and soapy water or a pH 

neutral product.

–  When using a high-pressure washer on 

persistent marks, do not keep the lance 

directed towards the headlamps, lamps or 

their edges for too long, so as not to damage 

their protective coating and seals.

Changing a bulb must only be done with 

the ignition off and after the headlamp / 

lamp has been switched off for several 

minutes - risk of serious burns!

Do not touch the bulb directly with your 

fingers; use a lint-free cloth.

It is essential only to use anti-ultraviolet 

(UV) type bulbs, so as not to damage the 

headlamp.

Always replace a failed bulb with a new bulb 

of the same type and specification. To avoid 

lighting imbalance, replace the bulbs in pairs.

Refitting the lamp units

Perform the operations in the reverse 

order to dismantling.

Opening the bonnet / Accessing the 

bulbs

With the engine warm, proceed with caution - 

risk of burns!

Take care with objects or clothing that could 

be caught in the blades of the cooling fan - 

risk of strangulation!

Changing a fuse

Access to the tools

 

 

The puller is located inside the engine fuse box.

►  Open the bonnet.

►  Disengage the cover completely.

►  Take the puller from its housing.

Changing a fuse

Before changing a fuse:

►  Identify the cause of the fault and fix it.

►  Switch off all power consumption.

►  Identify the defective fuse using the current 

allocation tables and diagrams.

To replace a fuse, it is essential to:

►  Use the special puller to extract the fuse 

from its housing and check the condition of its 

filament.

►  Always replace the failed fuse with a fuse of 

the same rating (same colour); use of a different 

rating may cause malfunctions - risk of fire!

If the fault recurs soon after replacing a fuse, 

have the electrical system checked by a 

CITROËN dealer.

The fuse allocation tables and the 

corresponding diagrams are available 

from a CITROËN dealer.

The replacement of a fuse not shown in 

the allocation tables may cause a serious 

malfunction of the vehicle. Contact a 

CITROËN dealer.
