  • Seat belts (3/3)The following information applies to the vehicle’s front and rear seat belts. –  o modification may be made to the component parts of the originally fitted restraint system: belts, seats and their N mountings. For special operations (e.g. fitting child seats), contact an authorised 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. – Make sure that the buckle is inserted into the appropriate catch. – Ensure that no objects are placed in the area around the seat belt catch as they could prevent it from being properly se- cured. – When refitting the rear seats, make sure the seat belts are correctly positioned so that they can be used correctly. – Make sure the seat belt catch is properly positioned (it should not be hidden away, crushed or flattened by people or ob- jects).1.22

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). – Do not sit too close to the steering wheel when driving: 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 to 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 be sustained. 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.

Warning concerning the side air bag – Fitting seat covers: seats equipped with an air bag require covers specifically designed for your vehicle. Contact an approved Dealer to find out if these covers are available. The use of any covers other than those designed for your vehicle (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. 1.29

Contact an approved Dealer 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 vehicle and trailer must not exceed 48 mph (80 km/h) (van versions) or 60 mph (100 km/h) (estate versions) 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.6.8
