MAINTENANCE AND ANTIPOLLUTION ADVICE
Your vehicle complies with criteria for recycling and recovering vehicles at the end of their service life, which entered into force in 2015.
Some parts of your vehicle have therefore been designed to facilitate future recycling.
These parts are easy to remove so that they can be recovered and reprocessed by recycling companies.
By virtue of its design, moderate fuel consumption and initial settings, your vehicle also conforms to current antipollution regulations. The manufacturer is actively striving to reduce pollutant exhaust gas emissions and to save energy. But the fuel consumption of your vehicle and the level of pollutant exhaust gas emissions are also your responsibility. Ensure that it is maintained and used correctly.
It is important to remember that failure to respect antipollution regulations could lead to legal action being taken against the vehicle owner.
In addition, replacing engine, fuel supply system and exhaust components with parts other than those originally recommended by the manufacturer may alter your vehicle so that it no longer complies with anti-pollution regulations.
Have your vehicle adjusted and checked by an authorised dealer, in accordance with the instructions given in your maintenance schedule: they will have all the equipment necessary for ensuring that your vehicle is maintained to its original standard.
- Spark plugs: for optimum conditions of use, output and performance the specifications laid down by our Design Department must be strictly applied.
If the spark plugs have to be changed, use the make, type and gap specified for your vehicle’s engine. Contact an authorised dealer for this.
- Ignition and idle speed: no adjustment is needed.
- Air filter : a choked element will reduce efficiency. It must be replaced.
Exhaust gas monitoring system
The exhaust gas monitoring system will detect any operating faults in the vehicle’s antipollution system.
If this system malfunctions, toxic substances may be released into the atmosphere or damage may occur.
Ä This warning light on the instrument panel will indicate if there are any faults in the system:
This lights up when the ignition is switched on and goes out when the engine is started.
- If it lights up continuously, consult an approved Dealer as soon as possible;
- if it flashes, reduce the engine speed until the light stops flashing. Contact an authorised dealer as soon as possible.
