Coolant

With the engine switched off and on level ground, the level when cold must be between the “MINI” and “MAXI” marks on coolant reservoir 1.

Top this level up when cold before it reaches the MINI mark.

Frequency of checking coolant level

Check the coolant level regularly (very severe damage is likely to be caused to the engine if it runs out of coolant).

If the level needs to be topped up, only use products approved by our Technical Department which ensure:

- protection against freezing;

- an anti-corrosion protection for the cooling system.

Replacement interval

Refer to the Maintenance Document for your vehicle.

Before carrying out any action in the engine compartment, you must switch off the ignition. STARTING, STOPPING THE ENGINE: vehicle with key or STARTING, STOPPING THE ENGINE: vehicle with card.

Risk of injury.

Consult your approved dealer at once if you notice an abnormal or repeated drop in any of the fluid levels.

No operations should be carried out on the cooling circuit when the engine is hot.

Risk of burns.

Brake fluid

This should be checked frequently, and immediately if you notice even the slightest loss in braking efficiency.

The level should be read with the engine switched off and on level ground.

Level 2

It is normal for the level to drop as the brake shoes become worn, but it must never drop lower than the “MINI" warning line.

If you wish to check the disc and drum wear yourself, you should obtain the document explaining the checking procedure from the manufacturer’s network or website.

Topping up

After any operation on the hydraulic circuit, a specialist must replace the brake fluid.

Only use fluids approved by our Technical Department (and taken from a sealed container).

Replacement interval
