Renault Clio: Towing

Before towing, unlock the steering column: with the clutch depressed, engage first gear (lever in position N or R for vehicles with automatic gearboxes), insert the RENAULT card in the card reader, then press the engine start button for two seconds.

Reposition the lever to neutral (position N for vehicles fitted with an automatic gearbox).

The column is unlocked, the accessory functions are supplied: the vehicle lights can be used (indicators, brake lights etc.). At night the vehicle must have its lights on.

Once you have finished towing, press the engine start button twice (risk of running down the battery).

Do not remove the RENAULT card from the reader when the vehicle is being towed.

The speed specified by current legislation for towing must always be observed.

If your vehicle is the towing vehicle, do not exceed the maximum towing weight for your vehicle (refer to the information on “Weights” in Section 6).
