Renault Clio: In case of puncture

Depending on the vehicle, a tyre inflation kit or emergency spare wheel is provided (refer to the following pages).

If the emergency spare wheel has been stored for several years, have it checked by your Dealer to ensure that it is safe to use.

Vehicle fitted with an emergency spare wheel that differs from the other wheels:

  • Never fit more than one emergency spare wheel to the same vehicle.
  • As the punctured wheel is wider than the emergency spare wheel, the vehicle’s ground clearance is reduced.
  • Replace the emergency spare wheel as soon as possible with a wheel identical to the original one.
  • When this is fitted to the vehicle, which must only be a temporary measure, the driving speed must not exceed the speed indicated on the label on the wheel.
  • Fitting an emergency spare wheel may alter the way the vehicle usually runs.

    Avoid sudden acceleration or deceleration and reduce your speed when cornering.

  • If you need to use snow chains, fit the emergency spare wheel to the rear axle and check the tyre pressure.
