In addition, the reel mechanism blocks the belt when it is jerked or if the car brakes sharply, is in a collision or when taking bends at high speed. Always adjust the seat belt height to the passenger’s body: this precaution may considerably reduce the risk of injury in the event of a collision. For maximum safety, keep the back of your seat up-right, lean back into it and make sure the seat belt fits closely across your chest and hips. Correct regulation is obtained when the belt passes approximately half way between the shoulder and the neck. Four height possible. P4E02134 To unfasten the seat belts, press button C. Guide the seat belt with your hand while it is rewinding, to prevent it from twisting. 14:20 Do not press button C when running. fig. 13 30 adjustments are P4E02303 ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR fig. 15 To raise the belt Lift ring (A) to the required position.

Then check that the seat belt is locked by pushing down ring (A) without pressing knob (B). 14:20 Sayfa 31 P4E02474 21.01.2011 USING THE CENTRAL REAR SEAT BELT The central rear seat (fig. 16-B) is fitted with inertial seat belts with reel (fig. 16-A). To fasten the seat belt: push the fastener tongue A-fig. 17 into slot B of the buckle, until you hear it click. fig. 16 P4E01620 ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR To unfasten the seat belt: press button C-fig. 17. If the central rear seat belt is not used, please position it as shown in Fig. 19. In order to prevent wrong fastening of the belt, the sliders of the side seat belts are designed to match to the anchoring device of the central rear seat belt. fig. 17 P4E01620 After adjustment, always check that the slider is anchored in one of the positions provided. To do this, with the B button released, exert a further pressure to allow the anchor device to catch if release did not take place at one of the preset positions. fig. 18 31 ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR 19.01.2011 IMPORTANT In case the rear seat will be tilted, please remove the seat belt (A-Fig. 19) from its housing (BFig. 19) with the help of the button shown in (C-Fig. 19) before tilting the seat and after tilting anchor the slider of the seat to its housing (A-Fig 18). 13:56 Sayfa 32 After the tilting process, please position the central rear seat belts always in unanchored (not used) position (Fig. 19). Fig. 21 shows the faulty connection of the rear seat belts. IMPORTANT Before return the rear seats to their normal positions, please check whether the anchoring devices of the seat belts are positioned in order not to prevent correct alignment, touch or damage between seat backrest and cushion. fig. 19 32 P4E01620 P4E01620 P4E01620 Schema in Figure 20 shows the correct connection of the rear seat belts. Please observe carefully the connection logic in Figure 20, in order to prevent faults. fig. 20 fig. 21 ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR 19.01.2011 Remember that in the event of a violent collision, back seat passengers not wearing seat belts also represent a serious danger for the front seat passengers. 13:56 Sayfa 33 The belt webbing must not be twisted, make sure that it is welt stretched out and fits close to the passenger's body. The upper section must pass over the shoulder and cross the chest diagonally. The lower section must fit close across the passenger's hips and not the abdomen to prevent them sliding forward fig. 18. Do not use devices (clips, fasteners etc.) to prevent the belt adhering to the passenger's body. Always fasten seat belt. To travel with seat belts unfastened increases the risk of serious injury or death in the event of a crash. GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE USE OF THE SEAT BELTS P4E01377 The driver is obliged to respect (and check that the car occupants respect) all local traffic laws regarding the use of seat belts. If the seat belt is subjected to high stress, for example after a collision, it must be replaced completely together with the anchors, anchor fixing screws and the pretensioner, if the car is equipped with, in fact, even if the seat belt does not seem damaged, the seat belt could have lost its resistance proprieties. fig. 22 33 ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR 21.01.2011 Each seat belt should be used by only one person at a time: never travel with a child sitting on the passenger’s lap with a single belt to protect them both. Do not fasten other objects to the body fig. 23. 14:21 Sayfa 34 Seat belts are also co be worn by expectant mothers; the risk of injury in the case of accident is greatly reduced for them and the unborn child if they are wearing a scat belt. HOW TO KEEP THE SEAT BELTS IN PROPER WORKING ORDER AT ALL TIMES 1) When wearing the seat belts, always ensure they are not twisted and are free to wind in and out. Of course they must position the lower part of the belt very low down so that it passes under the abdomen fig. 24. 2) Following a serious accident, replace the belt being worn at the time, even if it does not seem damaged. SERIOUS DANGER: If the vehicle has a passenger airbag, do not place the child seat on the front seat. RBAG fig. 23 34 P4E01379 3) When cleaning the belts, wash them by hand with water and neutral soap, rinse them and let them dry in the shade. Do not use strong detergents, bleach, colouring or any other chemical substance that could weaken the fibres. P4E01378 AI fig. 24 4) Do not allow the reel mechanisms to get wet: they are only guaranteed to work properly if they remain dry. ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR 19.01.2011 TRANSPORTING CHILDREN SAFETY SERIOUS DANGER: Never place cradle child’s seats onthe front passenger seat of cars fitted with passenger’s air bag. The air bag activation could cause serious injuries, even mortal. You are advised to carry children always on the rear seats, as this is the most protected position in the case of a crash. In any case, children’s seats must absolutely not be fitted on the front seat of cars with passenger’s air bag, which during inflation could cause serious injury, even mortal, regardless of the seriousness of RBAG Sayfa 35 the crash that triggered it. Children may be placed on the front seat of cars fitted with passenger’s air bag deactivation. In this case, it is absolutely necessary to check the warning light F on the cluster to make sure that deactivation has actually taken place (see paragraph “Passenger’s front airbag” at item “Front air bags”). The front passenger’s seat shall be adjusted in the most backward position to prevent any contact between child’s seat and dashboard. For optimal protection in the event of a crash, all passengers must be seated and wearing adequate restraint systems. This is even more important for children. Compared with adults, their head is proportionally larger and heavier than the rest of the body, while the muscles and bone structure are not completely developed. Therefore, correct restraint systems are necessary, other then adult seat belts. P4E00197 AI 13:56 fig. 25 35 21.01.2011 36 Sayfa 36 GROUPS 0 and 0+ GRUP 1 Babies up to 13 kg must be carried facing backwards on a cradle seat, which, supporting the head, does not induce stress on the neck in the event of sharp deceleration. The cradle is restrained by the car seat belts, as shown in fig. 26 and in turn it must restrain the child with its own belts. Starting from 9 kg to 18 kg in weight, children may be carried facing forwards, with seats fitted with front cushion fig. 27, through which the carseat belt restrains both child and seat. The figure is only an example. Follow the instructions for fastening the specific child restraint system you are using. The figure is only an example. Follow the instructions for fastening the specific child restraint system you are using. P4E00199 The results of research on the best child restraint systems are contained in the European Standard ECE-R44. This Standard enforces the use of restraint systems classified in five groups: Group 0 10 kg in weight Group 0+ 13 kg in weight Group 1 9-18 kg in weight Group 2 15-25 kg in weight Group 3 22-36 kg in weight The groups partially overlap. This is because there are systems which cover more than one weight group (Fig. 25) All restraint devices must bear the certification data, together with the control brand, on a solidly fixed label which must absolutely never be removed. Over 36 kg in weight and 1.50 m in height and, from the point of view of restraint systems, children are considered as adults and wear the seat belts normally. Lineaccessori Fiat offers seats for each weight group, which are the recommended choice, as they have been designed and experimented specifically for Fiat cars. 15:59 P4E00198 ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR fig. 26 fig. 27 19.01.2011 Sayfa 37 GROUP 2 GROUP 3 Starting from 15 kg to 22 kg in weight, children may be restrained directly by the car belts. The only function of the seat is to position the child correctly in relation to the belts, so that the diagonal part adheres to the chest and not to the neck and that the horizontal part clings to the child’s pelvis and not the abdomen fig. 28. Starting from 22 kg to 36 kg in weight, the size of the child’s chest no longer requires a support to space the child’s back from the seat back. Fig. 29 shows an example of proper child positioning on the rear seat. Children taller than 1.50 m can wear seat belts like adults. The figure is only an example. Follow the instructions for fastening the specific child restraint system you are using. P4E00201 Seats exist which are suitable for covering weight groups 0 and 1 with a rear connection to the car belts and their own belts to restraint the child. Due to their size, they can be dangerous if installed incorrectly fastened to the car belts with a cushion. Carefully follow the instructions for installation provided with the seat. 13:56 P4E00200 ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR fig. 28 fig. 29 37 ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR 21.01.2011 15:00 Sayfa 38 PASSENGER SEAT COMPLIANCE WITH REGULATIONS ON CHILD’S SEAT USE Fiat Albea complies with the new Directive 2000/3/EC regulating child’s seat assembling on the different car seats according to the following tables: Versions with single and double rear seat SEATS Group Range of weight Group 0, 0+ Front passenger Rear side passenger Rear centre passenger up to 13 kg U U L Group 1 9 - 18 kg U U L Group 2 15 - 25 kg U U L Group 3 22 - 36 kg U U L Key: U = suitable for child restraint systems of the “Universal” category, according to European Standard ECE-R44 for the specified “Groups” L = child’s seats cannot be installed on the rear centre seat with lap belt with two anchor points 38 ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR 21.01.2011 A summary of safety precautions to follow when transporting children. 1) Child restraint systems should be installed on the rear seat as this is the most protected area in the car in the event of a crash. 2) If the passenger’s air bag is deactivated always check the amber warning light on the cluster to make sure that it has actually been deactivated. 3) If the passenger’s air bag is deactivated always check the warning light F on the cluster to make sure that it has actually been deactivated (where provided). 4) Adhere to the instructions for fastening the specific child restraint which you are using. These instructions must be provided by the manufacturer. Keep the child restraint system installation instructions with the car documents and this Handbook. Never use a child restraint system without installation instructions. 5) Always check the seat belt is well fastened by pulling the webbing. 16:00 Sayfa 39 6) Only one child is to be strapped to each restraint system. 7) Always check the seat belts do not fit around the child's throat. 8) While travelling, do not let the child sit incorrectly or release the belts. 9) Passengers should never carry children on their laps. No-one, however strong they are, can hold a child in the event of a crash. 10) Replace the child restraint system after an accident. PRETENSIONERS (where provided) To increase the efficiency of the front and rear (where provided) seat belts, the Fiat Albea is fitted with pretensioners. These devices “feel”, through a sensor, that a violent crash is in progress and rewind the seat belts a few centimetres. In this way they ensure that the seat belt adheres perfectly to the wearer before the restraining action begins. The seat belt locks to indicate that the device has intervened; the seat belt cannot be drawn back up even when guiding it manually. Pretensioner activation may produce a small amount of smoke. This smoke is in no way toxic and presents no fire hazard. 39 ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR 21.01.2011 The pretensioner does not require any maintenance or greasing. Anything that modifies its original conditions invalidates its efficiency. If due to unusual natural events (floods, sea storms, etc.) the device has been affected by water and mud, it must necessarily be replaced. To obtain the highest degree of protection from the action of the pretensioning device, wear the seat belt keeping it firmly close to the chest and pelvis. 14:21 Sayfa 40 The pretensioner does not require any maintenance or lubrication; anything that modifies its original conditions invalidates its efficiency. Any interventions should be vehicle ride out by qualified and authorised personnel. Always contact a Fiat Dealership. Load limiting device This device reduces the load with is normally exerted by the seat belts on the passenger’s shoulder and chest in a collision. It increases protection by preventing the micro traumas which are inevitable in road accidents (also in vehicles with airbags). The device is built into the belt reel. 40 The pretensioner can only be used once. After a collision that has triggered it, have it replaced at a Fiat Dealership. The validity of the device is written on the plate located on the front left door post. The pretensioners should be replaced at a Fiat Dealership as this date approaches. Operations which lead to knocks, vibrations or localised heating (over 100°C for a maximum of 6 hours) in the area around the pretensioners may cause damage or trigger them. These devices are not affected by vibrations caused by irregularities of the road surface or low obstacles such as kerbs, etc. Contact a Fiat Dealership for any assistance. ALBEA_022-046_EN: ALBEA_022-079_TR 21.01.2011 INSTRUMENTS 14:22 Sayfa 41 IMPORTANT The warning light A will blink to indicate a fault in the system. Go to a Fiat Dealership to have the system checked. SPEEDOMETER COUNTER fig. 30-31 WARNING Under certain conditions (heavy slopes, for instance), the reading on the gauge may differ from the actual amount of fuel in the tank and changes in level may be indicated late. FUEL LEVEL GAUGE fig. 32 This condition falls within the operation logics of the electronic control circuit to avoid highly unstable readings due to swaying of the fuel when travelling. This shows the amount of fuel left in the fuel tank. When the reserve warning light comes on there are still about 5.5-7.5 litres of fuel in the tank. Last value of the speedometer counter is different in Multijet types. Do not travel with the fuel tank almost empty: the gaps in fuel delivery could damage the catalyser.

Under normal operating conditions the pointer may move to the various positions on the temperature gauge. This, of course, depends on the conditions of vehicle use and the management of the engine cooling system that is carried out continuously in self adjustment. The pointer, however should always remain outside the red “danger” area. If the gauge reaches the red section, stop the engine immediately and go to a Fiat Dealership 13:20 IMPORTANT The gauge will point to low temperature and the excessive temperature warning light will come on to indicate a fault in the system. Contact a Fiat Dealership to have the system checked. REV COUNTER fig. 35 Travelling too slowly when the outside temperature is very hot can also cause the needle to approach the red sector. In this case it is better to stop and turn off the engine. After a few moments you can start the engine again and accelerate slightly. IMPORTANT The electronic injection control system will progressively cut off the flow of fuel when the engine is over-revving and the engine will consequently loose power. 42 The needle in correspondence with the red marks indicates over-rewing that can damage the engine. So it has to be avoided. P4E02139 If the conditions persists even after the measures you have taken, turn off the engine and have the car seen to at a Fiat Dealership.

ALBEA_106-135_TR: ALBEA_022-079_TR 19.01.2011 ABS (where provided) The ABS is available on some versions. which prevents the wheels from locking when braking, makes the most of road grip and gives the best control in emergency braking under difficult road conditions. The driver can tell the ABS system has come into play because the brake pedal pulsates slightly and the system get noiser. 13:22 Sayfa 67 This should not be interpreted as a fault in the brakes: on the contrary is a sign that the ABS system is working; it tells the driver that the car is travelling at the limit of its road grip and that the speed should be altered to fit the type of road surface. The ABS system is an addition to the basic braking system. If there is a malfunction this cuts out, leaving the braking system working as a normal system without ABS. If a failure occurs and consequently the anti-lock system is not working, the car normal braking performance is not in anyway jeopardised. If you have never driven a car with ABS before, you should practice using the system on slippery terrain, obviously with the necessary safety precautions and keeping to the Highway code of the country you are in. It is also a good idea to read the following information carefully. 125 ALBEA_106-135_TR: ALBEA_022-079_TR 19.01.2011 The advantage in using the ABS system is that it continues to give you maximum manoeuvrability even when braking hard in conditions for poor grip by preventing the wheels locking. However, do not expect that with ABS the braking distance will always decrease: for example surfaces with gravel or fresh snow on a slippery road could in fact increase the braking distance. 126 13:22 Sayfa 68 To exploit the ABS system to the full in the event of necessity, you should take heed of the following advice: The ABS exploits the tyre-road grip available to the full, but it cannot improve it; you should therefore take every care when driving on slippery surfaces, and not take unnecessary risks. If the ABS system cuts in it is a sign that the grip between the tyre and the road surface has reached the limit; you must slow down to match the speed to the road grip available. ALBEA_106-135_TR: ALBEA_022-079_TR 21.01.2011 If there is a fault, the instrument panel warning light > will come on, at this point, reduce speed and go to a Fiat Dealership to have your car checked and put it right immediately. Braking while cornering always requires extreme care even when using ABS. 14:31 Sayfa 69 If you follow these tips, you will be able to brake better in any situation. IMPORTANT Cars fitted with ABS are only to be fitted with wheel rims. tyres and brake liners of the make and model approved by the car manufacturer. The system is completed with an EBD electronic brake force distributor which increases the brake system performance and employs the ABS control unit and sensors. The vehicle is fitted with an electronic braking device (EBD). If the > and x warning lights come on at the same time, this means that there is an EBD system fault. In this case, violent braking may be accompanied by early brake locking with the possibility of skidding. Drive the vehicle to the nearest Fiat Dealership to have the system checked. The most important advice to follow is this: When the ABS is activated, you will feel the brake pedal pulsating. Do not remove your foot, but keep it pressed. In doing so you will stop in the shortest amount of space possible under the current road conditions. If the brake fluid low warning light x comes on, stop the car immediately and contact the nearest Fiat Dealership. Fluid leaks from the hydraulic system, in fact, can compromise the braking of both traditional systems and systems with ABS. The lighting of the warning light > when the engine is running normally indicates a fault in the ABS system only. In this case, the braking system will still be effective without the anti-locking device. In these conditions EBD system operation can be reduced. Also in this case, we recommend immediately taking the vehicle to a Fiat Dealership avoiding sudden braking to have the system checked. 127 ALBEA_106-135_TR: ALBEA_022-079_TR 19.01.2011 AIRBAG (where fitted) In a collision, an electronic control unit processes the signals from a deceleration sensor and. where required, inflates the airbag. The front airbag (driver and passenger) is a safety device which is immediately triggered in the event of a front impact. The bag inflates instantly and acts as a soft protective barrier between the driver's body and the structures that could cause injury. The bag deflate immediately afterwards. It consists of an instantly inflatable bag housed in a special compartment located: - in the centre of the steering wheel on the driver’s side; A person not wearing the seat belt may crash into the bag before it is fully inflated. In this case the protection is considerably decreased. P4E01407 - in the dashboard on the passenger’s side (larger bag). 128 Sayfa 70 The air bag is a device designed to protect the driver in the event of a frontal collision of medium-high severity, by interposing the cushion between the occupant and the steering wheel. DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION fig. 84 fig. 84 13:22 As a consequence, the air bag is not a replacement for the use of seat belts but rather a complement. We recommend that seat belts are worn at all times as prescribed by legislation in Europe and most other countries worldwide. In the event of a less severe collision (for which seat belts arc sufficient protection) the airbag is not activated. For impacts against very deformable or mobile objects (traffic sign poles, heaps of gravel or snow, parked vehicles), side impacts, wedging under other vehicles or barriers (e.g. under a track or guard rail), the airbag is not necessary. In the event of frontal impacts involving, for example, the mudguard against a guardrail, the airbags are not triggered as they would not offer additional protection with respect to the seat belts. Therefore, the fact that the airbag does not inflate is not a sign of system malfunction. 21.01.2011 FRONT AIRBAG PASSENGER SIDE (where provided) The passenger side airbag was designed and calibrated to protect a person wearing seat belts. When fully inflated, the bag will fill most of the space between the dashboard and the passenger. SERIOUS DANGER: If the vehicle has a front airbag on passenger side, do not place the child seat on the front seat. AI 13:33 Sayfa 71 The switch has two positions: key, remove the protective cover on the tunnel covering by pulling the latch shown fig. 86. 1) Passenger front airbag on: instrument panel warning light * off (position ON). Do not carry children on the front seat. IMPORTANT Operate the switch only with engine off and ignition key removed. 2) Passenger front airbag off: instrument panel warning light F on (position OFF). A child can be carried on the front seat with a suitable restraint system. Warning light F on the cluster stays on permanently until the passenger’s airbag is reactivated. RBAG Do not spill a liquid or any drink on the key; the operation of the system could be affected. P4E02166 Manual deactivation (where provided) fig. 85-86 The passenger side airbag can be deactivated if it is absolutely necessary to carry a child in the front passenger seat. Deactivation could be made by inserting and turning the ignition switch to the housing of key mouthed switch shown in A-Fig. 85. To reach this fig. 85 P4E02167 ALBEA_106-135_TR: ALBEA_022-079_TR fig. 86 129 ALBEA_106-135_TR: ALBEA_022-079_TR 21.01.2011 GENERAL WARNINGS It may happen that the air bag inflates if the car is involved in hard impacts or collisions in the area of the underbody, for example hard knocks against steps, kerbs or raised road bumps, or if the car drops into large pot-holes or road dips. When the airbag inflates it emits a small amount of dusts. These dusts are harmless and is not the beginning of a fire; then the unfold cushion surface and the vehicle interiors can be covered by a dusty remains: this dust can irritate skin and eyes. In case of contact, wash yourself using neutral soap and water. If the warning light ¬ turns on (together with a message on the display, where provided) when travelling, it indicates that the system is not working properly. Contact Fiat Dealership to have the system checked immediately. The air bag system has a validity of 14 years as to the pyrotechnic charge, and 10 years as to the coil contact (see the plate in the glove compartment). As this date approaches, contact Fiat Dealership to have it replaced. 130 16:14 Sayfa 72 Should an accident occur in which the airbag is activated, take the car to a Fiat Dealership to have the whole device replaced (electronic control unit, seat belts, pretensioners) and to have the electrical system checked. Any diagnostic, repair or replacement operations concerning the airbag system must exclusively be carried out at a Fiat Dealership. If you are having the car scrapped, have the airbag system deactivated at a Fiat Dealership. If the car changes hands, the new owner must be made aware of the indications given above and be given this Owner's Handbook. Pretensioners (if electronically controlled) and air bag are triggered by the electronic control unit according to different types of impact. Therefore, if some devices do not trigger this does not indicate a fault in the system. When the ignition key is turned to MAR, the indicator û comes on after about four seconds. If the warning light does not come on, or it remains on while travelling go immediately to a Fiat Dealership. The warning light F should come on for approximately four seconds and then flash for other four seconds when the passenger side airbag deactivation switch is turned to ON and the ignition key is turned to MAR to remind you that the passenger side airbag will be fired in the event of an accident. The warning light should then go out. ALBEA_106-135_TR: ALBEA_022-079_TR 21.01.2011 Do not apply stickers or other objects on the steering wheel. Do not travel with items on your lap, in front of you or with a pipe, pencil etc. between your lips. In a collision where the airbag is triggered you could seriously hurt yourself. Always drive with both hands on the rims of the steering wheel so that the airbag is free to inflate during ahead-on collision and protection yourself from serious injury. Do not drive with your body bending towards the steering wheel but sit in an upright position with your back resting against the seat. 14:31 Sayfa 73 If an attempt has been made to steal the car or if it has actually been stolen or vandalised in any way or subjected to flooding, have the airbag system checked at a Fiat Dealership. Correct operation of the front airbags and the pretensioners is guaranteed as long as the car is not overloaded. Please note that air bag scan be triggered when the engine is running also if the car is stationary and another vehicle crashes into it at suitably high speed. As a consequence, never sit children in the front seat, also when the car is still. On the other hand, the airbags will not be fired if the car is stationary and the key is not turned. Missed operation in these circumstances does not indicate a fault. The airbag does not replace seat belts but rather increases their effectiveness. Furthermore, the front airbag is not fired in the event of low speed front collisions, side collisions, rear-end shunts and rollovers. In these cases, the passengers are only protected by the seat belts which for this reason must be fastened at all times. 131 ALBEA_106-135_TR: ALBEA_022-079_TR 21.01.2011 AT THE FILLING STATION P4E01635 132 Sayfa 74 Never put even the tiniest amount of leaded fuel in the tank, even in an emergency; you would damage the catalytic converter beyond repair. PETROL ENGINES The Fiat Albea’s pollution control devices make it essential to use unleaded petrol only. Use petrol with a rated octane number (R.O.N.) not lower than 95. fig. 87 16:15 An inefficient catalytic converter will allow harmful exhaust fumes to be emitted and thus contribute to air pollution. ALBEA_106-135_TR: ALBEA_022-079_TR 21.01.2011 FUEL FILLER CAP 14:33 Sayfa 75 Keep naked flames and lighted cigarettes away from the fuel filler as there is a danger of fire. Do not bend too close to the hole so as not to breathe in harmful vapours. 3) While filling the tank, place the filling cap on the outer cap as shown in fig. 91. In order to reach the fuel filler cap, use the opening arm shown in fig. 88 on the side of driver seat. The fuel filler cap is fitted with an anti-loss device which fastens it to the flap so it cannot be mislaid (fig. 89). Fuel filler cap (plug) could be locked type. To open: To close: 1) Turn the key by approximately anticlockwise. 1) Fit the cap (complete with key) and turn it clockwise until it clicks once or more. 2) Turn the cap and remove it (fig. 89). P4E02472 fig. 88 P4E02419 2) Turn the key clockwise and extract it, then close the flap. IMPORTANT The hermetic closure may cause a slight pressure in the tank: a slight hissing when turning the cap is quite normal. fig. 89 133 ALBEA_106-135_TR: ALBEA_022-079_TR 19.01.2011 IMPORTANT If required, replace the fuel cap with another genuine cap to avoid affecting the efficiency of the fuel vapour recovery system. 134 Sayfa 76 PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT Protecting the environment has been the guiding principle in the design of the Fiat Albea right from the start. The result is the use of materials and creation of devices that can reduce or considerably curtail harmful influences on the environment. P4E02492 fig. 90 13:22 The devices for curtailing emission for petrol version are: - a three-way catalytic converter; - Lambda sensor; - an anti evaporation system. As a consequence Fiat Albea is ready to travel well ahead of the most stringent international pollution control standards. ALBEA_106-135_TR: ALBEA_022-079_TR 21.01.2011 14:33 Sayfa 77 AT THE FILLING STATION (DIESEL ENGINES) Refuel with diesel fuel for motor vehicles complying with European Specifications EN590 only. The use of other products or mixtures can damage the engine beyond repair and consequent for felt the warranty for the damage caused. If you accidentally use other types of fuel, do not start the engine and empty the tank. If, on the other hand, the engine has run, even for a very short time, you will need to drain the fuel lines as well as emptying the tank. At low temperatures the fluidity of the diesel fuel is reduced leading to the formation of paraffin which can consequently block the diesel filter. In this case, the diesel fuel should be mixed with DIESEL MIX additive in the proportions shown on the container, introducing first the additive into the tank and then the fuel. The DIESEL MIX antifreeze additive should be mixed with the diesel fuel before the reactions caused by the cold occur. Adding the fluid after will have no effect. 135 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 19.01.2011 13:46 Sayfa 136 STARTING AND DRIVING To help you handle your Fiat Albea in the best and safest possible way, and above all use it to its fullest potential, we have given you some hints in this chapter on "what to do, what not to do and what to avoid" when at the wheel of your Fiat Albea. In most cases, these behaviours are valid also on other cars. In other cases, they are related to operational particularities exclusive to Fiat Albea. It is necessary to pay utmost attention while reading this chapter, to know the use and driving behaviours allowing you to derive the maximum from your Fiat Albea. 136 STARTING THE ENGINE (PETROL VERSIONS) ....

The engine consumes oxygen and gives off carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other poisonous fumes. Never touch the high voltage wires (spark plug wires) when the engine is running. The key switch is equipped with a safety device which obliges, in the event of engine starting malfunction to return the key at STOP prior to repeating the starting operation. At the same time, when the engine is running, the device prevents to shift from MAR position to AVV position. 13:41 Sayfa 137 In the first operational seconds, above all after a long inactivity period, you can hear a higher noise level of the engine. Such phenomenon, which does not compromise the functionality and reliability, is typical of the hydraulic tappets; the distribution system, chosen for the engine of 1.2 16V and 1.6 16V version of your Fiat Albea to contribute to the maintenance intervention reduction. STARTING THE ENGINE IMPORTANT Do not press the accelerator until the engine has started. 1) Ensure that the handbrake is up. When the vehicle is equipped with Speedgear gearbox, put the lever on P or N position. 2) Put the gear mechanical gear lever (if equipped) into neutral. 4) Turn the ignition key to AVV and release it as soon as the engine starts. If the engine does not start at the first attempt, return the ignition key to STOP before trying to start the engine again. If the Y warning light remains on together with warning light U when the ignition key is at MAR, turn the key to STOP and then back to MAR; if the warning light stays on, try with the other keys provided with the car. If you still cannot start the engine, perform an emergency start (see “Emergency starting” in the “In an emergency” section) and go to a Fiat Dealership. IMPORTANT When the engine is switched off never leave the key on (at MAR) to prevent unnecessary consumption and draining the battery. 3) Press the clutch pedal right down. 137 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 21.01.2011 15:52 Sayfa 138 We recommend not to push the engine to its limits for the first period of use (e.g. abrupt accelerations, excessively prolonged distances at max revs, hard braking, etc.). EMERGENCY STARTING If the Fiat CODE system fails to recognise the code transmitted by the ignition key (warning light Y on instrument panel lit with fixed light) you can start the engine by following the emergency procedure using the code written on the CODE card. See “In an emergency” section. HOW TO WARM UP THE ENGINE AFTER IT HAS JUST STARTED - Begin co move forward slowly letting the engine turn over at medium revs. Do not accelerate abruptly. - Do not push the engine to its limits for the first few kilometres. BUMP STARTING Never bump start the engine (by pushing, towing or coasting downhill) as this could cause fuel to flow into the catalytic exhaust system and damage it beyond repair. Remember that until the engine has started the brake booster and hydraulic power steering systems they will not work and a greater effort will therefore be required to depress the pedal or turn the steering wheel. STOPPING THE ENGINE Turn the ignition key to STOP while the engine is idling. A quick burst on the accelerator before turning off the engine serves absolutely no practical purpose (1.3 Multijet) and wastes fuel. IMPORTANT After a taxing drive you should allow the engine co "catch its breath" before turning it off by letting it idle to allow the temperature in the engine compartment to fall. 138 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 21.01.2011 16:17 Sayfa 139 STARTING THE ENGINE (DIESEL VERSIONS) STARTING PROCEDURE FOR DIESEL VERSIONS 1) apply the handbrake; 2) put the gear lever in to neutral; 3) turn the key on (MAR position): instrument panel warning lights Y m and U will light up; 4) wait for the warning lights Y and U to go out. 5) wait for the warning light m to go out. The hotter the engine is, the quicker this will happen; 6) press the clutch pedal down to the floor without touching the accelerator; 7) turn the ignition key to AVV as soon as the m warning light goes out. Waiting too long will waste the heating work carried out by the glow plugs. Release the ignition key as soon as the engine has started. IMPORTANT With the engine cold, the accelerator pedal must be fully released when you turn the ignition key to AVV. Warning light m will blink for 60 seconds after starting or during prolonged cranking to indicate a fault to the glow plug heating system. Use the car normally if the engine starts, but go to a Fiat Dealership as soon as possible. If the engine does not start at the first attempt, return the ignition key to STOP before repeating the procedure. If the Y warning light stays on when the ignition key is at MAR, turn the key to STOP and then back to MAR; if the warning light remains on, try with the other keys provided with the car. Contact a Fiat Dealership if the engine still does not start. IMPORTANT When the engine is switched off never leave the key on MAR position. HOW TO WARM UP THE ENGINE AFTER IT HAS JUST STARTED - drive off slowly, letting the engine turn at medium revs. Do not accelerate abruptly; - do not demand to performance for the first few kilometres. Wait until the engine coolant gauge reaches 50º-60°C. 139 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 21.01.2011 PARKING Stop the engine, engage the handbrake and engage first gear if the car is faced uphill or reverse gear if it is faced downhill in compliance with the national Highway Code and leave the wheels steered towards the road borders or the kerb. Block the wheels with a wedge or a stone if the car is parked on a steep slope. 13:47 Sayfa 140 PARKING THE CAR Never leave children unattended in the car. If the car has Speedgear system, engage the handbrake and set gear lever to P. Leave the wheels steered. Block the wheels with a wedge or a stone if the car is parked on a steep slope. Do not leave the ignition key at MAR because it drains the battery. Always remove the key when you leave the car. P4E01637 Never leave unsupervised children in the car. Always remove the key from the ignition switch and take it with you when you get out of the car. fig. 1 140 19.01.2011 HANDBRAKE fig. 1 The handbrake lever is located between the two front seats. Pull the handbrake lever upwards until the car cannot be moved. Four or five clicks are generally enough when the car is on level ground while nine or ten may be required if the car is on a steep slope or laden. IMPORTANT If this is not the case, take the car to a Fiat Dealership to have the handbrake adjusted. Instrument panel warning light x will come on when the handbrake lever is pulled up and the ignition key is at MAR. To release the handbrake: 1) Slightly lift the handbrake and press release button A. 15:23 Sayfa 141 USING THE GEARBOX To engage the reverse gear (R), wait that the car has stopped moving completely; from the neutral position, lift the ring A of the reverse gear inhibitor device, move the lever towards the right side and then backwards. To engage the gears, press the clutch pedal fully down and put the gear lever into one of the positions shown in the diagram in fig. 2 (the diagram is also on the gear lever knob). You must press the clutch fully down to change gear properly. It is therefore essential that there is nothing under the pedals. Make sure that mats are lying flat and do not get in the way of pedals. IMPORTANT The car can be put into reverse gear when it has stopped moving completely. With the engine running, before engaging the reverse gear, wait at least 2 seconds with the clutch pedal fully down to prevent damage and grating of the gears. To engage the gears, press down the clutch and put the gear lever into one of the positions shown in the diagram (fig. 2); P4E02313 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 2) Keep the button pressed in and lower the lever. Warning light x will go out. 3) Press the brake pedal when carrying out this operation to prevent the car moving accidentally. Do not drive with your hand resting on the gear lever as the force exerted, even if slight, could lead overtime to premature wear of the gearbox internal components. fig. 2 141 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 19.01.2011 SAFE DRIVING In designing the Fiat Albea. Fiat made every effort to offer a car able to provide driver and passengers with top class levels of safety. Below you will find some simple tips to help you travel in safety under different conditions. You will no doubt be familiar with many of them already but it will be useful to read them all carefully. BEFORE GETTING BEHIND THE WHEEL - Make sure all lights including the headlights are working properly. - Adjust the position of the seats, the steering wheel and the rearview mirrors properly for the best driving position. 142 13:46 Sayfa 142 - Carefully adjust the head restraints so the back of the head and not the nape of the neck is supported. - Make sure that nothing (mats etc.) gets in the way of the pedals when they are pushed down. - Do not drive using the clutch pedal as a foot rest. Such behaviour can cause a premature wear of the clutch. - Make sure that any child restraint systems (child seats, carriers, etc.) are properly fixed preferably on the back seat. Follow the precautions listed in the "Transporting children in safety" paragraph in the "Getting to know the car" chapter. - Arrange the load in the boot in such a way that it cannot be thrown forwards in the event of an accident. - Do not place clear objects or sheets of paper on the dashboard that reflect on the windscreen. - Do not eat a heavy meal before travelling. Light eating will help keep your reflexes prompt. Above all, do not have anything alcoholic to drink. - Remember to periodically carry out the checks specified in the "Repeated checks before long trips" paragraph given in this section. ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 21.01.2011 WHEN TRAVELLING - The first rule of safe driving is prudence. - Prudence also means putting yourself into a position where you can predict wrong or imprudent behaviour from other drivers. - Stick closely to the rules of the road in the particular country where the car is being driven and, above all, do not exceed speed limits. - Do not use the clutch pedal as a foot rest; this will cause accelerated wear on clutch components. - Ensure that, besides yourself, all the other passengers in the car have their seat belts fastened, that children are sitting in the appropriate child seats and any animals in the car are placed in suitable compartments. - You should be physically fit and mentally alert before setting out on long journeys. 13:48 Sayfa 143 Driving under the influence of drugs or certain medicines is dangerous for both you and other road users. Consider that fitting extra spoilers, alloy rims or non standard wheel caps can reduce ventilation of the brakes and reduce their efficiency under conditions of violent or repeated braking or long downhill travel. Always fasten both front and back seat belts, including the child restraint systems. Travelling with the seat belts unfastened increases the risk of injury or death in an accident. Pay attention to the measurements of carpets. Any hinderance, even modest, to the braking system could necessitate a longer than normal pedal run. Water, ice or salt sprinkled on the road can deposit on the brake discs and reduce efficiency of the first braking. Pay attention to the measurements of carpets. Any hindrance, even modest, to the braking system could necessitate a longer than normal pedal run. 143 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 19.01.2011 - Do not drive too many hours at a time but stop at intervals to stretch your legs and recoup your energy. - Constantly change the air in the passenger compartment - Never coast downhill (i.e. with the engine off): if you do, you lose the aid of engine braking and the brake booster so that braking requires greater effort. DRIVING AT NIGHT If you are driving at night these are the main rules to follow; - Drive carefully; it is harder to drive at night. - Slow down especially if the road is not lit. - At the first signs of sleepiness, stop: continuing would be a risk for yourself and everybody else. Only start driving again when you have had enough rest. - Keep a greater safety distance from the cars in front of you than during daylight hours; it is hard to judge how 144 13:46 Sayfa 144 fast other cars are going when all you can see are their lights. much longer and road-holding is lower. - Make sure the headlight beams are properly positioned; if they are too low, they reduce visibility and strain your eyes. If they are too high they can dazzle other drivers. Here is some advice for driving in the rain; - Only use main beam headlights when you are driving outside town and make sure they do not annoy other drivers. - Dip your headlights as soon as you see cars coming in the other direction and pass them with the headlights dipped. - Keep all lights clean. - Be careful of animals crossing the road when driving in the country. DRIVING IN THE RAIN Rain and wet road surfaces spell danger. All manoeuvres arc more difficult on a wet road because the grip of the wheels on the tarmac is greatly reduced. This is why braking distances are - Reduce speed and maintain a greater safety distance from the cars in front. - If it is raining particularly heavily, visibility is also reduced. In these cases, switch on the dipped headlights even if it is still daylight so you can be seen more easily. - Do not drive through puddles at speed and hold on tightly to the wheel if you do: a puddle taken at high speed might cause you to lose control of the car ("aquaplaning"). ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 19.01.2011 - Move the ventilation controls to the position for demisting the windows (see chapter "Getting to know your car") to avoid visibility problems. - Periodically check the condition of the windscreen wiper blades. DRIVING IN FOG - If the fog is thick, do not start out on a journey. If driving in mist, blanket fog or when there is the danger of fog patches: - Keep your speed down, - Turn on the dipped headlights and front fog lights, if fitted, even during the day. Do not drive with your headlights at main beam. 13:46 Sayfa 145 IMPORTANT On the road with good visibility, switch off your rear fog lights; the brightness of these lights could annoy the people travelling in the cars behind. MOUNTAIN DRIVING - Remember that fog also means the tarmac is wet and therefore manoeuvres of all kinds are more difficult and stopping distances are longer. - Under no circumstances should you drive downhill with the engine off or with the car in neutral, let alone with the ignition key out. - Keep a good distance from the vehicle in front of you. - Drive at a moderate speed without cutting corners. - As far as possible, avoid spurts of speed or sudden deceleration. - Remember that overtaking while going uphill is slower and therefore requires more free road. If you are being overtaken while driving uphill, make it easier for the other vehicle to pass. - Do not overtake other vehicles if you can help it. - When driving downhill, use the engine braking by engaging a low gear, so as not to overheat the brakes. - If you are forced to stop your car (breakdown, limited visibility etc.) try to stop off the road. Turn on the hazard lights and, if possible, the dipped beam headlights. Rhythmically sound the horn if you realize another car is coming. 145 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 19.01.2011 13:46 Sayfa 146 DRIVING ON SNOW AND ICE to sun or are lined with trees or rocks where ice may have not have melted. Here are some tips for driving in these conditions: - Keep a good distance from the vehicles in front - Before starting off make sure that the windscreen wiper blades are not frozen to the windscreen. - Do not stay parked on high snow for too long with engine running: the snow could divert the carbon oxide of the exhaust gases in the passenger compartment. - Remove the snow from the climate control system air vent. - Keep your speed down. - Use chains if the roads are covered in snow: see paragraph "Snow chains" in this chapter. - Mainly use the braking effect of the engine and under all circumstances avoid braking sharply. - When braking in a car not fitted with ABS, reduce the possibility of the wheels locking by varying the pressure you exert on the brake pedal. - Do not accelerate suddenly and avoid swerving. - In the winter, even apparently dry roads may have icy patches. Be careful therefore when driving over patches that do not get much exposure 146 DRIVING WITH ABS The ABS is a braking system that essentially offers two advantages: 1) lt prevents wheel lock and consequent skidding in emergency stops, particularly when the road does not offer much grip. 2) It makes is possible to brake and steer at the same time so you can avoid unexpected obstacles and direct the car where you want while braking. The extent to which this can be done will depend on the physical limits of the tyre's sideways grip. To exploit the ABS at best: - During emergency stops or when grip conditions are poor, you will feel a slight pulsation on the brake pedal. This is the sign that the ABS is working. Do not release the brake pedal but continue to press so as not to interrupt the braking action. - ABS prevents the wheels from locking but it does not increase actual grip conditions between tyre and road. Therefore, even if your car is fitted with ABS, respect the safety distance from the car in front of you and keep your speed down when driving into bends. - The ABS serves to increase your control over the car, not to enable you to go faster. ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 19.01.2011 The vehicle is fitted with an electronic braking device (EBD). The > and x warning light will come on at the same time when the engine is running to indicate that there is an EBD system failure. In this case violent braking may be accompanied by early rear wheel locking with the possibility of skidding. Drive the vehicle extremely carefully to the nearest Fiat Dealership to have the system checked. Warning light > with the engine running, normally indicates a faulting the ABS system only. In this case, the braking system is still efficient, though without the anti locking device. You are advised to go immediately to the nearest Fiat Dealership, driving in a manner to avoiding sharp braking and get the system checked. 13:46 Sayfa 147 CONTAINING RUNNING COSTS AND POLLUTION Some suggestions which may help you to keep the running costs of the car down and lower the amount of toxic emissions released into the atmosphere are given below. GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS Car maintenance The overall state of the car is an important factor which has a marked influence over fuel consumption and driving comfort and on the life span of your car. For this reason care should be taken to maintain your car by carrying out the necessary checks and regulations in accordance with the specifications given in the service schedule (see sections: spark plugs, idling, air cleaners, timing). Tyres Tyre pressure should be checked at least once every four weeks: if the pressure is too low fuel consumption increases as the resistance to the rolling movement of the tyre is greater. In this state, tyre wear is increased and handling suffers which will effect safety. Unnecessary loads Do not travel with too much load in the boot. The weight of the car (above all in the urban traffic) and its trim greatly effects consumption and stability. Roof rack/ski rack Remove roof racks and ski racks from the roof of the car as soon as they arc no longer needed. These accessories reduce the aerodynamic penetration of the car and will increase consumption. 147 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 19.01.2011 Electrical devices Use electric devices for the necessary time only. The heated rear window. additional lights, windscreen wipers, heater, fan of the heating system require large amounts of electricity and increasing the request for power will also increase fuel consumption (up to +25% when driving in towns). Climate control system The climate control system is an additional load which greatly effects the engine leading to higher(up to +20% in average) fuel consumption. When the temperature outside allows, use the air vents where possible. Spoilers The use of optional extras, which are not certified for specific use on the car, may reduce the aerodynamic penetration of the car and increase consumption. 148 13:46 Sayfa 148 DRIVING STYLE Starting Do not warm the engine when the car is stationary or at high or low revs: in this way the engine will warm up gradually increasing consumption and emissions. You should drive off slowly straight away avoiding high revs so that the engine will warm up more quickly. Unnecessary actions Avoid revving the engine when stopped at traffic lights or before switching off the engine and avoid doubling the clutch as these actions serve no purpose in modern cars and only increase consumption and pollution. Gear selections As soon as the traffic and road conditions allow it. shift to a higher gear. Using a lower gear to liven up acceleration greatly increases consumption. In the same way, improper use of the higher gears will increase consumption, emissions and wear and tear on the engine. Top speed Fuel consumption increases considerably as speed increases. For example. when accelerating from 90 to 120 km/h, fuel consumption increases up to approximately +30%. Your speed should be kept as even as possible and superfluous braking and acceleration avoided as this increases both consumption and emissions. A "smooth" driving style should be adopted by attempting to anticipate manoeuvres to avoid imminent danger and to keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front to avoid braking sharply. Acceleration Accelerating violently increasing the revs will greatly effect consumption and emission; acceleration should be gradual and not exceed the maximum torque. ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 21.01.2011 CONDITIONS OF USE Cold starting Very short distances and frequent cold starting will not enable the engine to reach optimal running temperature. It follows, therefore, that consumption will be higher (from +15 to +30% in towns) as will the production of toxic emissions. Traffic and road conditions Heavy traffic and higher consumption are synonymous: for example, when driving slowly with frequent use of lower gears or in towns where there are numerous traffic lights. Winding roads, mountain roads and bumpy roads also have a negative effect on consumption. Enforced halts During prolonged stops (traffic lights, level crossings, etc.) the engine should be switched off. 13:49 Sayfa 149 ECONOMICAL RUNNING THAT RESPECTS THE ENVIRONMENT Environmental protection has been one of the guiding principles in the production of the Fiat Albea. It is no accident that its pollution control equipment is much more effective than that required by current legislation. Nonetheless, the environment cannot get by without a concerted effort from everyone. By following a few simple rules you can avoid harming the environment and often cut down fuel consumption at the same time. On this subject, a few useful tips have been given below to supplement those marked by symbol #, at various points of the handbook. You are asked to read both the former and the latter carefully. LOOKING AFTER EMISSION CONTROL DEVICES The correct use of pollution control devices not only ensures respect for the environment but also has an effect on the car's performance. Keeping these devices in good condition is therefore a fundamental rule for driving that is easy on your pocket and on the environment too. The first step to take is to follow the Service Schedule to the letter. Use only unleaded petrol (petrol versions). If you have trouble starting, do not keep turning the ignition key for long periods. Be especially careful to avoid bump starting the car by pushing, towing or rolling downhill: these are all manoeuvres that can damage the 149 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 19.01.2011 If the engine begins to "lose its smoothless" when travelling, continue your journey but reduce the demands you are making on the engine and go to a Fiat Dealership as soon as you can. When the instrument panel fuel reserve warning light comes on, fill up as soon as possible. A low level of fuel can cause an uneven supply of fuel to the engine with the inevitable increase in the temperature of the exhaust gas and serious damage to the catalytic converter. Never run the engine with one or more spark plugs disconnected, even for testing purposes. Do not warm up the engine by letting it idle for a while before moving off unless the outside temperature is very low and, even in this case, only do so for less then 30 seconds. Do not install other heat shields and do not remove those already fitted to the catalytic converter and exhaust pipe. 150 13:46 Sayfa 150 Do not allow anything to be sprayed onto the catalytic converter, lambda sensor and exhaust pipe. In SPEEDGEAR automatic transmission versions, an electronic clutch control system is available providing a staged start, in case the vehicle is towing a trailer. The catalytic converter develops high temperature during normal operation. Do not park the car on grass, dry leaves, pine needles or other flammable material: fire hazard Ignoring the above rules may lead to fire. TOWING TRAILERS IMPORTANT NOTES For towing caravans or trailers the car must be fitted with a certified tow hook and an adequate electric system. Installation should be carried out by specialised personnel who release a special document for circulation on the road. Install any specific and/or additional rearview mirrors as specified by law. Remember that when towing a trailer, steep hills are harder to climb, the braking spaces increase and overtaking takes longer depending on the overall weight. Engage a low gear when driving downhill, rather than constantly using the brake. The weight the trailer exerts on the car tow hook reduces by the same amount the actual car loading capacity. ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 21.01.2011 To make sure the maximum towable weight is not exceeded account should be taken of the fully laden trailer, including accessories and personal belongings. Do not exceed the speed limits of the country you are driving in. In any case do not exceed 100 km/h. 16:18 Sayfa 151 WINTER TYRES These are tyres which have been specifically designed for use on snow and ice and should be fitted in place of the existing tyres. Use winter tyres of the same size as the tyres provided with the car. Fiat Dealerships will be glad to offer advice on the right type of tyres according to your needs. The ABS system with which the car may be fitted does not control the trailer braking system. Drive with extreme care on slippery road beds. The specific characteristics of the winter tyres mean that under normal driving conditions or when driving long distances on motorways, their performance is greatly reduced incomparison to those normally fitted to the car. The use of these tyres should therefore be limited to the conditions for which they were designed. The performance of winter tyres is greatly reduced when the depth of the tread is less than 4 mm. In this situation it would be safer to have them replaced Under no circumstances should the car brake system be altered to control the trailer brake. The trailer braking system must be fully independent of the car hydraulic system. 151 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 21.01.2011 All four tyres should be the same (brand and track) to ensure greater safety when driving, braking and cornering. Remember not to invert the tyre direction of rotation. The maximum speed for winter tyres with “Q” marking is 160 km/h. Respect the highway code speed limits. 16:18 SNOW CHAINS Check the tension of the chains after the first 20-30 metres have been driven. Keep you speed down when snow chains have been fitted to the wheels. Do not exceed 50 km/h. Avoid potholes, steps and pavements, and do not drive for long stretches on snow-free roads, otherwise you risk damaging the tyres, suspension and steering. Refer to the above mentioned table for information on the wheels where snow chains can be fitted. Follow the prescriptions. The use of snow chains is regulated by the legislation in force in the country the car is driven in. The chains may only be applied to the drive wheel tyres (front wheels). Tyres on which chains can be fitted Type of snow chain to be used 1.3 Multijet 175/70 R14 1.4 8V 175/70 R14 Reduced clearance snow chains maximum projection off wheel equal co 12 mm Versions 152 Sayfa 152 ALBEA_136-155_TR: ALBEA_080-097_TR 19.01.2011 13:46 Sayfa 153 STORING THE CAR - Clean and protect the painted parts using protective wax. The following precautions should be taken if the car will not be used for more than a month: - Clean and protect the shiny metal parts using special compounds readily available. - Park the car in covered, dry and if possible well-ventilated premises. - Sprinkle talcum powder on the rubber windscreen and rear window wiper blades and lift them off the glass. - Engage a gear. - Make sure the handbrake is not engaged. - Remove the cables from the battery terminals (first remove the cable to the negative terminal), and check the battery charge. If the car is to be stored for long periods the battery charge should be checked every month and recharged if it falls below 12,5V. - Slightly open the windows. - Cover the car with a cloth or perforated plastic sheet. Do not use sheets of no-perforated plastic as they do not allow moisture on the car body to evaporate. - Inflate the tyres to +0.5 bar above the normal specified pressure and check it at intervals. RECURRENT CHECKS AND BEFORE LONG DISTANCE TRIPS Periodically, remember to check: - tyre pressure and conditions - level of battery fluid - engine oil level - coolant level and conditions of the system - brake fluid level - windscreen washer liquid level - power steering fluid level. - Do not drain the engine cooling system. 153 19.01.2011 ACCESSORIES PURCHASED BY THE OWNER RADIO TRANSMITTERS AND CELLULAR TELEPHONES Cellular telephones and other radio transceiver equipment (e.g. CB system) must not be used inside the vehicle unless n separate antenna is mounted on the outside of the car. IMPORTANT The use of cellular telephones, CB radio systems or other similar devices inside the passenger compartment (without an aerial) produces radio-frequency electromagnetic fields, which, amplified by the resonance effects inside the passenger compartment, may cause electrical systems equipping the car to malfunction. This could compromise safety in addition to constituting a potential hazard for the passengers. In addition, the receiving and transmitting effectiveness of such devices may be reduced by the screening effect of the car bodywork. 14:12 Sayfa 154 USEFUL ACCESSORIES It is a good idea to keep a fire extinguisher and blanket in the car in addition to the first-aid kit. Regardless of applicable legislation, we recommend that you keep the following in the vehicle (fig. 4): - first-aid kit with non-alcoholic base disinfectant, sterile gauze, a roll of gauze bandage, plasters, etc., - electric flashlight; - round-nosed scissors, - heavy-duty gloves.

Follow the emergency start-up procedure to start the engine. Read the whole procedure carefully before trying to carry it out. If you make a mistake, you must turn the ignition key back to STOP and repeat the whole operation from the beginning (step 1). 1) Read the 5-figure electronic codegiven on the CODE card. 2) Turn the ignition key to MAR. 13:48 Sayfa 156 3) Press and hold down the accelerator pedal. The injection system warning light U will come on for about 8 seconds, and then go out. At this point release the accelerator pedal and get ready to count the flashes of warning light U. 4) Count the number of flashes that corresponds to the first figure of the code on the CODE card, then press the accelerator pedal and keep it there until the U warning light comes on for four seconds and then goes out; release the accelerator pedal. 5) The U warning light will startflashing again: after it has flashed the number of times that corresponds to the second figure on the CODE card, press the accelerator pedal to the floor and keep it there. 6) Do the same for the remaining figures on the CODE card. 156 7) Once the final figure has been entered, keep the accelerator pedal pressed. The injection warning light U will light up for four seconds and then go out; release the accelerator pedal. 8) The U warning light will flash rapidly for about 4 seconds to indicate that the operation has been completed correctly. 9) Start the engine by turning the ignition key from MAR to AVV. If, however, the U warning light stays on, turn the ignition key to STOP and repeat the procedure from step 1. IMPORTANT After an emergency start, you should contact a Fiat Dealership, otherwise you will have to repeat the procedure described each time you want to start the engine. 19.01.2011 JUMP STARTING If the battery is flat, you can use another battery to start the engine. Its capacity must be the same or slightly greater than the flat battery (see the chapter TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS). Proceed as follows (fig. 1): 1) Connect positive terminals + of the two batteries with a jump lead. 2) With a second lead, connect the negative terminal (-) of the auxiliary battery and to an earth point E on the engine or the gearbox of the car to be started. 13:48 Sayfa 157 IMPORTANT Do not directly connect the two negative terminals: sparks could ignite the flammable gas from the battery. If the auxiliary battery is fitted in another vehicle, prevent accidental contact of metallic parts. This starting procedure must be carried out by expert personnel; if it is not done correctly it can cause very intense electrical discharges. In addition, the fluid contained in the battery is poisonous and corrosive. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. You are also advised not to put naked flames or lighted cigarettes near the battery and not to cause sparks. 3) Start the engine. 4) When the engine has been started, remove the leads reversing the order above. If the engine fails to start after a few attempts, do not keep turning the key but have the car seen to at a Fiat Dealership. P4E02174 ALBEA_156-183_TR: ALBEA_098-125_TR Under no circumstances should a battery charger be used to start the engine: it could damage the electronic systems and in particular the ignition and injection control units. fig. 1 157 ALBEA_156-183_TR: ALBEA_098-125_TR 19.01.2011 BUMP STARTING 13:48 Sayfa 158 IF A TYRE IS PUNCTURED General Information Never bump start the engine (by pushing, towing or coasting downhill). This could cause fuel to flow into the catalytic exhaust system and damage it beyond repair. Remember that until the engine has started the brake booster and power steering systems will not work and a greater effort will therefore be required to depress the brake pedal or turn the steering wheel. 158 Follow the instructions on this and the following pages to use the jack and spare wheel correctly. An incorrectly positioned jack may cause the car to fall. Do not use the jack to lift loads exceeding that indicated on the label attached to the jack itself. The jack should only be used to change a wheel on the car for which it is designed. It should not be put to other uses or employed to raise other models of cars. Under no circumstances should it be used when carrying out repairs under the car. Do not lubricate the bolt threads before fitting them back: they could come loose. Never start the engine, when the car is raised on a jack. Never tamper with the inflation valve. Never place tools between the rim and tyre. Check the tyre and spare wheel pressure regularly. The tyre inflation pressure is shown in the "Technical specifications" chapter. If the car is fitted with alloy rims, a specific spare wheel is provided. It is different from the one provided for the cars fitted with steel rims. In the event of successive purchase of alloy rims, replacing the steel rims, we suggest you to keep at disposal 4 genuine bolts, which will be used only with the spare wheel. Danger of damaging the wheel hubs. 19.01.2011 13:48 Sayfa 159 Any passenger should get out and wait as far away as possible from the dangers of traffic. If the road is sloping or bumpy, place wedges or other suitable material under the wheels to prevent the car from moving. 1. STOP THE CAR - Scop the car in a position that is not dangerous for oncoming traffic where you can change the wheel safely. The ground should be fiat and adequately firm. If you have to change the wheel at night, choose a lit area if possible. 2. TAKE OUT THE TOOLS, JACK AND SPARE WHEEL They are in the boot.

The correct operation and direction of the headlights is essential for safety and is governed by the highway code. 13:48 Sayfa 163 GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS TYPES OF BULBS - When a light is not working, check that it has not fused before changing the bulb. Several types of bulbs are installed in the car fig. 12. - For the location of the fuses, refer to "If a fuse blows" in this chapter. - Before replacing a bulb that does not work, check that the contacts are not oxidised. Only touch the metal part when handling halogen bulbs. If the transparent bulb is touched it reduces the intensity of the light emitted and can also reduce the life of the bulb. If you touch the bulb accidentally, rub it with a cloth moistened with alcohol and leave it to dry. - Burnt-out bulbs must be replaced with ones of the same type. Bulbs with low power offer low illumination, bulbs with too much power absorb too much energy. - Always check the height of the headlight beam after changing a bulb. A. Glass bulbs Clipped into position. Pull to remove. B. Bayonet connection bulbs Remove from the bulb holder by pressing the bulb and rotating it anticlockwise. C. Cylindrical bulbs Remove by pulling away from terminals. D-E.

First of all. read the "Car maintenance" chapter for the steps to be taken to avoid the battery running down and to ensure it has a long life. 4) When you have finished, turn the charger off before disconnecting the battery. JUMP STARTING 3) Turn on the charger. 5) Reconnect the cables to the battery terminals. Make sure the polarity is correct Do not attempt to recharge a frozen battery. Thaw it first otherwise it could explode. If the battery froze, make sure that the internal elements are not broken (shortcircuit risk) and that the casing is not cracked (risk of spilling the poisonous and corrosive fluid). See "Jump starting" in this chapter. RECHARGING THE BATTERY You are advised to recharge the battery slowly for a period of approximately 24 hours at a low amperage. Charging for too long could damage the battery. Proceed as follows: 1) Disconnect the electrical system from the battery terminals. The liquid in the battery is poisonous and corrosive. Do not let it touch the skin or eyes. Recharging the battery should be done in a well-ventilated area away from naked flames or possible sources of sparks: explosion and fire risk. Under no circumstances should a battery charger be used to start the engine: it could damage the electronic systems and in particular the ignition and injection control units. 177 ALBEA_156-183_TR: ALBEA_098-125_TR 19.01.2011 RAISING THE CAR WITH THE JACK 13:48 Sayfa 178 Do not use the jack to lift loads exceeding that indicated on the label attached to the jack itself. Sec "If a Tyre is Punctured", in this chapter. Please note: WITH A SHOP JACK Front end The car may only be raised by placing the jack arm under the gearbox/differential, inserting a wooden or rubber block as shown in fig. 39. - the jack requires no adjustments; - no other tool, except for the handle shown in this chapter, can be fitted to the jack. P4E02317 The jack should only be used to change a wheel on the car for which it was designed. It should not be put to other uses or emplyoed to rise other models. Under no circumstances should it be used when carrying out repairs under the car. Cars fitted with an engine/gearbox guard cannot be lifted from the front. - the jack cannot be repaired. If it breaks it must be replaced with a new jack; An incorrectly positioned jack may cause the car to fall. fig. 39 178 19.01.2011 At the sides 13:48 Sayfa 179 Rib A of the car side member must fit into groove B of the strip.

While the car is being towed with the engine off, remember that the brake pedal and steering will require more effort as you no longer have the benefit of the power brakes and power steering. Do not use flexible cables to tow. Avoid jerking. Whilst towing, ensure that the coupling to the vehicle does not damage the surrounding components. Vehicles with automatic transmission should be towed from front side, in order not to damage the gearbox due to inefficient lubrication. Moreover, the vehicle could be trundled for a few meters with gearshift lever in N position, in emergency cases. P4E02509 180 Before starting to tow, turn the ignition key to MAR and then to STOP. Do not remove the key. If the key is removed, the steering lock engages automatically which prevents the wheels being turned. When towing the car, you must comply with the specific traffic regulations regarding the tow hitch and how to tow on the road.

IMPORTANT - Engine oil Replace the engine oil more frequently than indicated in the Scheduled Servicing Plan, in the event that the car is mainly used in one of the following particularly severe conditions: - trailer or caravan towing; ADDITIONAL CHECKS Every 1,000 km or before long journeys, check and top up if required: - engine coolant level; - brake fluid level; - dusty, sandy or muddy roads; - repeated and short distances (less than 7-8 km) and with external temperature less than zero; - with engine frequently idling or for long distances at low speed (e.g. taxi. door-to-door deliveries or for long storage). - steering fluid level; IMPORTANT - Air cleaner - battery electrolyte level; Using the car on dusty roads, replace the air cleaner more frequently than indicated in the Scheduled Servicing Plan. - windscreen washer fluid level; - tyre inflation pressure and condition; Check and top up, if required, the engine oil level every 3,000 km. For any doubt on the air cleaner replacement, in relation to how the car is used- contact the Fiat Dealership. You are recommended to use products designed and produced specifically for Fiat vehicles (see“Capacities” in section “Technical specifications”). 187 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 19.01.2011 IMPORTANT - Pollen filter If the vehicle is used frequently in dusty or heavily polluted environments it is advisable to replace the filtering element more frequently; in particular it should be replaced if a reduction of the amount of air admitted to the passenger compartment is noted. IMPORTANT - Battery We suggest you to carry out the check of the state of battery charge, preferably at the beginning of the cold season in order to avoid the possibility of freezing the electrolyte. Such check must be carried out more frequently if the car is mainly used for short distances, or if it is equipped with permanent absorption users with disconnected key. above all if applied in after market. You should check the battery fluid (electrolyte) level more frequently than shown in the service schedule in this chapter if the car is used in hot climates or particularly demanding conditions. IMPORTANT - Fuel filter Check the conditions of the fuel filter when changes (choking) are noticed in the engine operation. 188 13:53 Sayfa 188 IMPORTANT - Remote control When the button on the remote control is pressed and the led on the control flashes once, the batteries must be replaced with others of the same type and power. Maintenance of your car should be entrusted to a Fiat Dealership. For ordinary routine maintenance operations which you are able to carry out yourself, ensure that you have the necessary tools and original Fiat spare parts and fluids available. Do not carry out servicing operations if you have no experience. Be careful not to mix up the various types of fluids when you are topping up: they are all mutually incompatible and could damage the vehicle. If your car is used frequently for towing, the interval between one service coupon and the other must be reduced. The jack, with which the car is equipped, is prescribed only when the wheel must be replaced. For exigencies different from this latter, the lifting of the car must respect particular modalities. Therefore, we recommend you to perform the operation at Fiat Dealership. Pay attention to scarves, ties and clothes which are not tight; they could get entangled in the moving parts. Pay attention, during refilling operations, not to confuse the different types of fluids: they are all incompatible and the car could be seriously damaged if there is wrong usage. 19.01.2011 13:53 Sayfa 189 P4E02320 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR CHECKING FLUID LEVELS fig. 1 - 1.4 8V versions P4E02319 1.

The oil level must be between the MIN and MAX marks on the dipstick The space between MIN and MAX equals about 1 litre of oil. 14:41 Sayfa 190 Be very careful under the bonnet: you risk burning yourself. Remember that when the engine is hot, the fan can start up and cause injuries. Be very careful: scarves, ties and other loose articles of clothing could easily get caught up in moving parts. This can be extremely dangerous. IMPORTANT Check the level and replace the engine oil respecting the frequency indicated in the "Scheduled Servicing Plan" and "Additional Intervention". 190 P4E02325 19.01.2011 fig. 3 - 1.4 8V versions P4E02326 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR fig. 4 - 1.3 Mutijet versions 19.01.2011 If the oil level is close to or even below the MIN mark, add oil through the filler hole until the level reaches the MAX mark. The oil level must never exceed the MAX line. IMPORTANT If the level of the engine oil, when checked, is found to be over the MAX mark, go to a Fiat Dealership to have it put right. IMPORTANT After adding or changing the oil, let the engine run for a few seconds then wait a few minutes after you have turned it off before checking the level. Do not add oil with different specifications from the oil already in the engine. ENGINE OIL CONSUMPTION When the car is new, the engine needs to run in. therefore the engine oil consumption can only be considered stabilised after the first 5000 -6000 km. Max engine oil consumption is usually 400 grams every 1000 km. 13:53 Sayfa 191 IMPORTANT Oil consumption depends on the driving style and the conditions of use. Used engine oil an replaced oil filters contain substances which can harm the environment. We recommend you have the car seen to at a Fiat Dealership for the oil and filter change. It is suitably equipped for disposing of used oil and filters in an environmentally -friendly way that complies with the law. The coolant level must be checked while the engine is cold and must be above the MIN mark visible on the reservoir. If the level is low, slowly pour a 50% mixture of demineralised water and FL Selenia PARAFLU UP through filler of the vessel until the level approaches the MAX line. The 50% concentration of PARAFLU UP demineralised water protects from freezing to a temperature of –35°C. IMPORTANT Do not remove the reservoir cap when the engine is hot: you risk scalding yourself. ENGINE COOLANT fig. 5 P4E02692M ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR Do not take the cap of the reservoir off when the engine is very hot as you run the risk of scalding yourself. fig. 5 Petrol versions 191 19.01.2011 In case of temperatures below –20°C, use undiluted TUTELA PROFESSIONAL SC 35. P4E02324 - 30% of TUTELA PROFESSIONAL SC 35 and 70% of water in summer. POWER STEERING FLUID fig. 9 IMPORTANT Do not travel with the windscreen washer reservoir empty: the windscreen washeris fundamental for improving visibility. Check that the level is between the MIN and MAX marks on the reservoir or in correspondence of the upper mark (max level) on the dipstick integral with the reservoir plug, with the car parked on flat ground and the engine cold. A dipstick fig. 8 indicates the amount of fluid in the washer reservoir. Some windscreen washer additives are inflammable. The fluid could ignite if it comes into contact with parts in the engine compartment. P4E01438 fig. 6 - 1.3 Multijet versions 192 When the fluid is finished, do not operate the windscreen washer in order to avoid damaging the pump motor. - 50% of TUTELA PROFESSIONAL SC 35 and 50% of water in winter. To add liquid remove the cap. Use a mixture of water and TUTELA PROFESSIONAL SC 35 fluid in the following concentrations: fig. 7 Sayfa 192 When the fluid is hot the level may rise over the MAX mark. If necessary, top up ensuring that the fluid has the same specifications as that in the reservoir. fig. 8 P4E01440 WINDSCREEN WASHER LIQUID fig. 10 13:53 P4E01439 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR fig. 9 Make sure the power steering fluid does not come into contact with the hot parts of the engine: it is inflammable. The power steering fluid consumption is very low; if it needs topping up at short intervals, have the system checked for leaks at a Fiat Dealership. With the engine running, do not push, at the end of the power steering stroke, for more than 15 consecutive seconds: noises are produced and the system could be damaged. 14:43 Sayfa 193 Avoid that the highly corrosive brake fluid drips onto the paintwork. If it does, wash immediately with water. BRAKE-CLUTCH FLUID Fig. 10: Versions without ABS Fig. 11: Versions with ABS Unscrew cap check that the fluid level in the reservoir is at maximum. Periodically, check he warning lights on the instrument panel: when you press the reservoir cover (with ignition key at MAR) warning light x should come on. If you need to top up. use only the type classified DOT 4. We advise the use of TUTELA TOP 4 with which the braking system was originally filled. The fluid level in the reservoir must not exceed the MAX mark. Brake fluid is poisonous and very corrosive. In the event of accidental contact, wash the affected part with neutral soap and water, then rinse in plenty of water. If the fluid is swallowed, call doctor immediately. P4E02090 19.01.2011 P4E02259 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR fig. 10 fig. 11 193 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 19.01.2011 The symbol π present on the container, indicates synthetic brake fluids distinguishing it from mineral fluid. Using mineral type fluid would damage the special rubber braking system gasket beyond repair. Sayfa 194 BATTERY Running the battery with an excessively low liquid level will damage the battery beyond repair and even cause an explosion. The Fiat Albea battery is of the "limited maintenance" type: under normal conditions it will not need to be topped up with distilled water. The level of the battery fluid (electrolyte) should be between the two marks on the battery when the car is parked on level ground. See the section "In an emergency" for instructions on how to recharge the battery. If the level is under the MIN-fig. 12, line, have the car seen to at a Fiat Dealership. The liquid in the battery is poisonous and corrosive. Do not let it touch the skin or eyes. Do not bring naked flames or possible sources of sparks near the battery: risk of fire and explosion. P4E01443 IMPORTANT Brake fluid is hygroscopic (meaning ic absorbs humidity). This is why the fluid should be changed more frequently than shown in the Scheduled Servicing Plan if the car is mainly driven in areas with high percentage of humidity in the air. 14:45 fig. 12 194 If the car will stand for a long time in the cold, remove the battery and store it in a warm place to avoid it freezing. ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 19.01.2011 Do not attempt to recharge a frozen battery. Thaw it first otherwise it could explode. If the battery froze, make sure that the internal elements are not broken (shortcircuit risk) and that the casing is not cracked (risk of spilling the poisonous and corrosive fluid). Batteries contain substances that can be very dangerous for the environment. It is advisable to have the battery changed by a Fiat Dealership where it will be disposed of according to the law. Incorrect assembly of electric and electronic devices may cause severe damage to your car. 13:53 Sayfa 195 USEFUL ADVICE FOR LENGTHENING THE LIFE OF YOUR BATTERY When you park the car, ensure the doors, boot and bonnet are closed properly. The courtesy light must be off. Do not keep accessories (e.g. sound system, hazard lights, etc.) switched on for a long time when the engine is not running. IMPORTANT A battery which is kept at a charge of less than 50% for any length of time will be damaged by sulphation leading to a reduction in cranking power and a higher risk of che battery electrolyte freezing (this may even occur at -10°C), If you want to add electrical accessories after buying the car which need permanent electric supply (alarm, free hand phone kit. radio navigator with satellite antitheft system etc.) visit a Fiat Dealership. They can suggest the most suitable accessories to get and check whether the electric system can support the required load or whether a larger capacity battery is required. These devices will, in fact, run off the battery even when the key is not inserted (car parked, engine stopped) and can destroy the battery. If the car is inactive for a long period of time, refer to "Long inactivity of the car", in the "Correct use of the car" chapter. 195 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 19.01.2011 The total intake of these systems (factory and after-market) must be less than 0.6 mA (of the battery), as shown in the following table: Battery Maksimum permissible stand-by intake 50 Ah 30 mA 60 Ah (*) - (*) For Multijet versions Furthermore, remember that high intake electric devices (such as baby bottle warmer, vacuum cleaners, cellular phones, mini-fridges, etc.) powered when the engine is off can deploy the battery. IMPORTANT If you need to fit additional systems in the car, remember that improper wiring connections, in particular if they affect safety devices, are dangerous. 196 13:53 Sayfa 196 ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNITS Therefore, the car's performance may change slightly during the first few kilometers. When the car is being used normally, special measures are not necessary. - Do not connect or disconnect the terminals of the electronic units while the ignition key is at MAR. The following instructions must be followed very carefully however, if you work on the electrical system or where emergency starting is necessary: - Never disconnect the battery from the electrical system while the engine is running. - Do not check polarity through sparking. - Disconnect the electronic units if you are electrically welding the car body. Remove the units if temperatures exceed 80°C (special operations on the bodywork etc.). - Disconnect the battery from the electrical system if you are recharging it. Modern battery chargers can discharge voltage up to 20 V. - Never perform emergency startups with a battery charger. Always use an auxiliary battery. - Be particularly careful when connecting the battery to the electrical system. Make sure that the polarity is correct and the connection is efficient. After reconnecting the battery, the injection/ignition control unit will need to readapt its internal parameters. Modifications or repairs to the electrical system carried out incorrectly and without bearing the features of the system in mind can cause malfunctions with the risk of fire. ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 19.01.2011 SPARK PLUGS 13:53 Sayfa 197 The spark plugs must be changed at the times specified in the Service Schedule. Only use the type of plugs indicated. If the heat ratio is less than required or the life specified is not guaranteed, problems can arise. The cleanness and soundness of the spark plugs fig. 13 are very important for keeping the engine efficient and polluting emissions down. The appearance of the spark plug, if examined by an expert eye, is a good way of pinpointing a problem even if it has nothing to do with the ignition system. Therefore, if the engine has problems. it is important to have the spark plugs checked at a Fiat Dealership. WHEELS AND TYRES TYRE PRESSURE Every two weeks and before long journeys, check the pressure of each tyre including the spare. The pressure must be checked when the tyre is rested and cold. Spark plug (type) P4E01480 1.4 8V NGH ZKR7A-10 It is normal for the pressure to rise when you are driving. If you have to check or to restore the pressure when the tyres are warm, remember that the pressure value must be 0.3 bar above the specified value. Tyre pressure must be correct to ensure good road holding. Wrong tyre pressure causes uneven wear of the tyres (fig. 14). fig. 13 197 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 19.01.2011 13:53 Sayfa 198 IMPORTANT A - Correct pressure: tyre wears evenly B - Under inflated tyre: shoulder tread wear C - Over inflated tyre; centre tread wear. As far as possible avoid sharp braking, screech starts etc. If the pressure is too low the tyre overheats and this can cause serious damage If a replacement is necessary, always use new tyres and avoid using ones the origin of which you are not certain about. Be careful not to hit the kerb, potholes or other obstacles hard. Driving over bumpy roads can damage the tyres. If you replace a tyre, it is necessary to check the inflation valve condition and, as necessary, to change it too. Periodically check that the tyres have no cuts in the side wall, abnormal swelling or irregular tyre wear. If any of these occur, have the car seen to at a Fiat Dealership. To ensure the front and rear tyres all wear evenly, you are advised to change the tyres over every 10-15 thousand kilometres keeping them on the same side of the car so as not to reverse the direction of rotation. Avoid overloading your car; this can seriously damage wheels and/or tyres. Tyres must be replaced when the tread wears down to 1.6 mm. In any case, comply with the laws in the country where the vehicle is being driven. P4E01445 If you get a flat tyre, stop immediately and change it so as not to damage the tyre, the wheel, the suspension and the steering. fig. 14 198 Tyres age even if they are not used very much. Cracking of the tread rubber and the side walls are a sign of ageing, In any case, if the tyres have been fitted for more than six years they should be examined by an expert who can judge whether they are still fit for use. Remember to check the spare tyre particularly carefully. Do not change the tyres over in criss-cross fashion by moving a tyre from the left hand side of the car to the right and vice versa. ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 19.01.2011 RUBBER TUBING Follow the Service Schedule to the letter as concerns supply line, power steering and brake system rubber tubing. Ozone, high temperatures and long absence of fluid in the system can in fact cause the hardening and cracking of the pipes with possible loss of fluid. A careful check is therefore essential. 13:53 Sayfa 199 WINDSCREEN WIPER Travelling with worn wiper blades is dangerous because it reduces visibility in bad weather. BLADES Some simple steps can reduce potential damage to the blades: Periodically clean the rubber part with TUTELA PROFESSIONAL SC 35. Change the blades if the rubber edge is warped or worn out. You should in any case change them approximately once a year. 199 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 21.01.2011 - If the temperature falls to below zero, make sure the rubber blade is not frozen to the glass. If necessary. free it with a de-icing compound. - Remove any snow that has settled on the glass; besides saving the blades you will avoid straining the electric windscreen wiper motor and causing it to overheat. Sayfa 200 Replacing the windscreen wiper blades fig. 15 SPRAY NOZZLES If there is no jet of liquid- first make sure that there is liquid in the reservoir: see "Checking Fluid Levels" in this chapter. 1) Lift the windscreen wiper arm A off the glass and position the blade so as to form a 90o angle with the arm. 2) Push the blade downwards to release it from the arm A. 3) Refit a new blade, inserting the tongue on the proper set of the arm. Make sure that is locked. P4E01446 - Do not operate the windscreen wipers on dry glass. 14:04 fig. 15 200 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 21.01.2011 14:06 Sayfa 201 MANUAL CLIMATE CONTROL (where provided) Then make sure that the holes in the nozzles (fig. 16) are not clogged up, use a pin for this if necessary. The windscreen washer jets can be directed by adjusting the inclination of the nozzles. Insert a screwdriver in Afig. 16 so to direct the jets to the highest point reached by the blades in their movement. During winter, the climate control system must be turned on at least once a month for about ten minutes. Before summer, have the system checked at a Fiat Dealership. BODYWORK PROTECTING THE CAR FROM ATMOSPHERIC AGENTS The main causes of rust are; - atmospheric pollution - salt and humidity in the atmosphere (coastal or very hot and humid areas); P4E00099 - environmental conditions that are specific to the season. The system uses refrigerating fluid R134a which will not pollute the environment if it accidentally leaks. Under no circumstances should R12 fluid be used. Besides being incompatible with the system’s components, it contains chlorofluorovehiclebides (CFC). In addition, the abrasiveness of dust in the atmosphere and sand carried by the wind as well as mud and stones kicked up by other cars must not be underestimated. Fiat has used leading-edge technological solutions to effectively protect the body from rust. The main ones are: - Painting systems and produces that make the car particularly resistant to rust and scratching. fig. 16 201 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 19.01.2011 13:53 Sayfa 202 - Use of galvanised (or pretreated) steel sheets, with high resistance to corrosion; TIPS FOR KEEPING THE BODY IN GOOD CONDITION -The spraying of the underbody. engine compartment, inside the wheelarches and other parts with wax-based products with a high protective capacity. Paintwork - Spraying pilastic-coating materials to protect the most exposed points: under the door, inside the wings, the edges etc. - The use of "open" box sections to prevent condensation and water from building up and rusting the inside of the parts. BODY AND UNDERBODY WARRANTY Your car is covered by warranty against perforation due to rust of any original element of the structure or body. For the general terms of this warranty, refer to the Fiat Warranty booklet. 202 The paintwork is not only to make your car look attractive but also to protect the steel. Detergents pollute water. For this reason, the car must be washed in an area equipped for the collection and purification of the liquids used while washing. If the paint is scuffed or scratched deeply you arc advised to touch up as necessary to prevent rust from forming. 1) Wash the body using a low pressure jet of water. Only use genuine products when touching up the paintwork (see the "Technical Specifications"). 2) Wipe a sponge with a slightly soapy solution over the bodywork, frequently rinsing the sponge. Ordinary maintenance of the paintwork means washing it. The frequency you should do this depends on the conditions and the environment the car is driven in. 3) Rinse well with water and dry with a jet of air or a chamois leather. To wash the car properly: When drying the car, be careful to get at those parts which are not so easily seen e.g. the door frames, bonnet and around die headlights where water can most readily collect. You should leave the car out in the open so that any water remaining can evaporate more easily. ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 19.01.2011 Do not wash the car after it has been parked in the sun or while the bonnet is hot: it could cake the shine off the paint. Outside plastic parts must be cleaned following the usual car washing procedure. Avoid parking the car under trees; the resinous substances that certain species of tree shed dull the paintwork and increase the possibility of rust forming. IMPORTANT Bird droppings must be washed off immediately and with great care as their acid is particularly aggressive. 13:53 Sayfa 203 IMPORTANT To prevent damage to the electric heater element, wipe the inside of the heated rear window gently in the same direction as the elements. Engine compartment INTERIORS Periodically check that water has not collected under the mats (from dipping shoes, umbrellas etc.) which could cause the steel to rust At the end of each winter season, carefully clean the engine compartment. Detergents pollute water. The car must therefore be washed in an area equipped for the collection and purification of the liquids used while washing. Never use flammable products (petroleum ether or petrol) to clean the inside of the car. Electrostatic charges generated by rubbing while cleaning could cause fires. Front headlights IMPORTANT Never use aromatic substances (e.g.: petrol) or ketenes (e.g.: acetone) for cleaning front headlight plasticlens. Windows Use specific window cleaners to clean the windows. Use very clean cloths to avoid scratching the glass or damaging its transparency. IMPORTANT The engine compartment should be washed while the engine is cold and with the ignition key at STOP. After washing make sure that the various protections (e.g. rubber boots and various guards) have not been removed or damaged. CLEANING SEATS AND FABRIC COMPONENTS - Remove dust with a soft brush or vacuum cleaner. - Brush the seats with a damp sponge with water and a neutral soap. 203 ALBEA_184-207_TR: ALBEA_126-149_TR 19.01.2011 PLASTIC PARTS INSIDE THE CAR Use special products designed not to alter the appearance of the components. IMPORTANT Do not use alcohol or petrol to clean the glass of the instrument panel. Do not keep aerosol cans in the car. There is the risk they might explode. Aerosol cans must never be exposed to a temperature above 50°C; when the weather starts to get hot the temperature inside the car might go well beyond that figure. 204 13:53 Sayfa 204 ALBEA_208-228_TR: ALBEA_150-178_TR 19.01.2011 13:58 Sayfa 1 TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS Motor and engineering enthusiasts as well as chose "in the trade" will probably start reading from this point in the handbook. This, in fact, is where a section jam-packed with facts, figures, formulae, measurements and tables begins. In a sense, it is Fiat Albea's identity card. A document that introduces the car and explains in technical jargon all the features that go together to make it a model designed to give you superlative driving satisfaction.
