RENGASPAINEET

WARNING

All tyre pressures, including the spare, should be checked regularly using an accurate pressure gauge, when the tyres are cold.

WARNING

Pressure checks should be carried out only when the tyres are cold, and the vehicle has been stationary for more than 3 hours. A hot tyre at, or below, the recommended cold inflation pressure, is dangerously under-inflated.

WARNING

Never drive your vehicle if the tyre pressures are incorrect. Under-inflation causes excessive flexing and uneven tyre wear. Over-inflation causes harsh ride, uneven tyre wear, and poor handling.

WARNING

Do not drive the vehicle with a leaking tyre. Even if the tyre appears to be inflated, it could be dangerously under-inflated and will continue to deflate. Replace or contact an approved repairer.

WARNING

Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tyre tread life and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.

WARNING

If the vehicle has been parked in strong sunlight, or used in high ambient temperatures, do not reduce the tyre pressures. Move the vehicle into the shade and allow the tyres to cool before rechecking the pressures.

The recommended tyre pressures are listed on a label, located on the driver's side B pillar. Open the driver's door to access the tyre pressure label.

WARNING

The loading of the vehicle should always be considered when checking and adjusting tyre pressures.

Check the tyres, including the spare, for condition and pressure on a weekly basis and before long journeys.

If tyre pressures are checked while the vehicle is inside a protected covered area (e.g., a garage) and subsequently driven in lower outdoor temperatures, tyre under-inflation could occur.

A slight pressure loss occurs naturally with time. If this exceeds 0.14bar ( 2 psi, 14 kPa) per week, have the cause investigated and rectified by qualified personnel.

If it is necessary to check tyre pressures when the tyres are warm, you should expect the pressures to have increased by up to 0.3 - 0.4 bar (4 - 6 psi, 30 - 40 kPa). Do not reduce the tyre pressures to the cold inflation pressure under these circumstances. Allow the tyres to cool fully before adjusting the pressures.

The following procedure should be used to check and adjust the tyre pressures:

NOTES

Make sure that the tyre pressures are set for the correct vehicle load.

CAUTION

To avoid damaging the valves, do not apply excessive force or sideways pressure on the gauge/inflator.

  1. Remove the valve cap.

  2. Firmly attach a tyre pressure gauge/inflator to the valve.

  3. Read the tyre pressure from the gauge and add air, if required.

  4. If air is added to the tyre, remove the gauge and re-attach it before reading the pressure. Failure to do so may result in an inaccurate reading.

  5. If the tyre pressure is too high, remove the gauge and allow air out of the tyre by pressing the centre of the valve. Refit the gauge to the valve and check the pressure.

  6. Repeat the process, adding or removing air as required, until the correct tyre pressure is reached.

  7. Refit the valve cap.
