1.6 litre HDi engine

  • Fill the fuel tank with at least five litres of diesel.
  • Open the bonnet.
  • If necessary, unclip the styling cover for access to the priming pump.
  • Squeeze and release the priming pump repeatedly until resistance is felt (there may be resistance at the first press).
  • Operate the starter until the engine starts (if the engine does not start at the first attempt, wait around 15 seconds before trying again).
  • If the engine does not start after a few attempts, operate the priming pump again then start the engine.
  • Clip the styling cover back in place.
  • Close the bonnet.
