Check the air pressure in the tyres
The tyre pressures must be checked every month.
Check the tyre pressure on cold tyres. "Cold tyres" means the tyres are the same temperature as the ambient temperature. After several few kilometres of driving, the tyres warm up and the pressure increases.
Inadequate tyre pressure increases fuel consumption, shortens tyre lifespan and impairs the car's driving characteristics. Driving on tyres with tyre pressure that is too low could result in the tyres overheating and being damaged. Tyre pressure affects travelling comfort, road noise and driving characteristics.
Tyre pressure decreases over time, this is a natural phenomenon. Tyre pressure also varies depending on ambient temperature.
The tyre valve is covered by a plastic cover which is equipped with a holeOnly 17" wheel Thia.
Remove the valve cover
Take the torx wrench (which is fitted in the foam block behind the panel on the left-hand side of the cargo area).
Press the torx wrench into the hole.
Prize off the cover using the torx wrench .
Remove the valve cap.
Refit the valve cover
Fit the valve cap.
Press one edge of the cover (without the hole) into place (nearest the tyre ).
Then fold the cover in toward the wheel rim - and at the same time, gently press down the angled top edge in order to help it in under the edge of the wheel rim.
Check that the cover is flush with the surface of the wheel rim - if not, gently press in the part that is bulging out.
Tyre pressure label
The tyre pressure label on the driver side's door pillar (between frame and rear door) shows the tyre pressures for the car's recommended tyre dimensions. This is also specified in the tyre pressure table, see Tyres - approved tyre pressures.
