WHEN NEEDING TO
CHANGE A BULB
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Before changing a bulb check the
contacts for oxidation.
Burnt bulbs must be replaced by
others of the same type and power.
Always check the height of the
headlight beam after changing a bulb.
When a bulb is not working, check
that the corresponding fuse is intact
before replacing it: refer to the “If a
fuse blows” paragraph in this chapter
for fuse location.
Modifications or repairs to
the electrical system that
are not carried out properly or do
not take the system’s technical
specifications into account can
cause malfunctions leading to the
risk of fire.
WARNING
Halogen bulbs contain gas
under pressure, if they
break glass fragments may be
thrown around.
WARNING
When handling halogen
bulbs just touch the metal
part. Touching the
transparent part of the bulb
with your fingers may reduce the
intensity of the emitted light and
even compromise duration of the
lamp. In case of accidental contact,
rub the lamp with a cloth and spirit
and leave to dry.

The fuse is a protective device for the
electric system: it comes into action (i.e.
it cuts off) mainly due to a fault or
improper action on the system.
Check the efficiency of the
corresponding fuse when a device does
not work: the conducting element
A
must not be interrupted. If it is, replace
the blown fuse with a new one having
the same amperage (same colour).
B
intact fuse.

MAINTENANCE
AND CARE
CLEANING SEATS AND FABRIC
PARTS
Remove dust with a soft brush or a
vacuum cleaner.
Rub the seats with a sponge moistened
with a solution of water and neutral
detergent.
INTERIOR PLASTIC PARTS
It is advisable to clean interior plastic
parts with a moist cloth and a solution
of water and mild soap. Use specific
products for cleaning plastic, without
solvents and specifically designed to
prevent damage to the appearance and
colour of the treated parts to remove
grease and tough stains.
IMPORTANT Never use spirit or
petroleum to clean the instrument
panel.
EQUIPMENT
Periodically check that water is not
trapped under the mats (due to water
dripping off shoes, umbrellas, etc.)
which could cause oxidisation of the
sheet metal.
Windows
Use specific window cleaner products.
Use also clean cloths to avoid scratching
the glass or damaging the transparency.
IMPORTANT Wipe the rear window
inside gently with a cloth in the
direction of the filaments to avoid
damaging the heating device.
Engine compartment
At the end of each winter, thoroughly
wash the engine compartment taking
care not to direct the water jet against
the electronic control units and the
relay/fuse control unit on the left side of
the engine compartment (running
direction). Have this operation
performed at a specialised workshop.
IMPORTANT Perform this operation
on a cold engine and with the key at
STOP
. After the washing operation,
make sure that the various protections
(e.g. rubber caps and guards) have not
been removed or damaged.
Front headlights
IMPORTANT Never use aromatic
substances (e.g.: petrol) or ketenes
(e.g.: acetone) for cleaning front
headlight plastic lens.
Never use flammable
products, such as petrol
ether or rectified petrol to clean
inside the car. The electrostatic
charges which are generated by
rubbing during the cleaning
operation may cause a fire.
WARNING
Don’t keep aerosol cans in
the vehicle: risk of
explosion. Aerosol cans must not be
exposed to a temperature
exceeding 50°C. When the vehicle
is exposed to sunlight, inner
temperature can greatly exceed
this value.
