What should I do in the event of a puncture?

1. Safety first

Get to a safe place where the vehicle can be parked without affecting traffic. Turn off the engine. Don’t forget to put the handbrake on. Put your high-visibility vest on and place the warning triangle on the side of the road, 30 metres away from your vehicle.

Safety first

2. Classic tyre or Run Flat tyre?

Check the type of tyre. If your vehicle has run flat tyres, you can drive carefully to a garage! Try not to go over 20 km/h. If you don't have a Runflat tyre, then the following information is for you.

3. Find the spare tyre kit

All our vehicles are equipped with a puncture repair kit. It is situated below the boot, and includes a jack, a key, a safety nut and a safety wheel.

⚠️ Some boots have double layers so make sure you open both layers to access the whole kit.

4. Remove the flat tyre

Place the jack on a flat surface and line it up with the notch near the damaged wheel in order to raise the car. Raise the vehicle using the jack handle. Lift the hubcap (unless the vehicle has aluminium wheel rims). Loosen the nuts on the wheel in an anticlockwise direction.

⚠️ You must use the tool in the kit to remove the locking wheel nut. Remove all the nuts and then the damaged wheel.

5. Fitting the safety wheel

Fit your safety wheel and make sure the nuts are done up tightly. Lower your vehicle and remove the jack. You can now drive to the nearest garage. Tip: position each nut first and tighten each one progressively one after the other.

⚠️ If the tyre cannot be repaired and a replacement is needed, tyres of the same speed must be used.
