When refitting, it is important to ensure the va-
rious wires are correctly routed and have suffi-
cient space so that the dashboard can be correctly
SPECIAL NOTES FOR REFITTING THE STEERING
WHEEL WITH AIRBAG
Ensure the rotary switch under the steering wheel
is correctly positioned.
If there is any doubt that this switch is correctly
centred follow the method for centring described
in section 88 "driver’s airbag".
Renew the steering wheel bolt each time it is re-
moved (pre-bonded bolt) for a steering wheel
Observe the correct tightening torque (4.5
Before reconnecting the driver’s airbag cushion,
check to see if the system is operating correctly as
•check the airbag warning light on the
instrument panel is illuminated when the
ignition is on,
•connect a dummy ignition module to the
driver’s airbag connector and check that the
warning light extinguishes,
•switch the ignition off, connect the airbag
cushion in place of the dummy ignition module
and secure the cushion to the steering wheel,
•switch the ignition on. Check the warning light
illuminates for three seconds when the ignition
is switched on then extinguishes and remains
If the warning light does not operate exactly as
described above, refer to the fault finding section
and test the system using the XRBAG (Elé. 1288)
(see section 88).

REMOVAL - REFITTING
Disconnect the battery.
- the two bolts (A) and remove the upper half
- the four bolts (B) and the two bolts (C).
Remove the dashboard visor.
The instrument panel MAY NOT be opened.
If it is faulty, it must be renewed.
Remove the four bolts (D) and remove the instru-
NOTE : only the glass may be replaced.
SPECIAL NOTES FOR REFITTING
Before reconnecting the instrument panel, check
the condition of the connectors and their wiring.
Ensure the connectors are correctly connected.
Check the information given by the instrument
panel is correct.

• Under normal operating conditions, the oil level is only measured if the ignition has been switched off for
over one minute; otherwise the old oil level value is re-displayed.
If a fault is detected, however, an oil level measurement is made each time the ignition is switched on to
check if the fault is persisting.
• It is normal to find that the oil level is not always the same:
- parking on a slope,
- too short a wait after running the engine for a short moment (especially when the oil is cold), ...

Mot. 1265-01Wrench for removing sender unit nut
Pliers for removing quick-release unions
Fuel level sensor
Disconnect the battery.
Lift the rear bench seat (depending on
Remove the pump and sender unit steel cover.
Disconnect the electrical connector (1).
Release the clips (2).
Then disconnect the fuel supply pipe (3) (green
marking on the quick-release union) and the fuel
return pipe (4) (red marking on the quick-release
union) using the special pliers Mot. 1265 or Mot.
IMPORTANT: When the pipes are removed, fuel
may be splashed out due to the residual pressure
in the pipes. Take appropriate precautions.
During any operation on the fuel level sensor
you must observe the following precautions:
- Do not smoke.
- Keep all flames or incandescent objects away
from the working area.
REMOVAL OF THE PUMP - SENDER ASSEMBLY
The pump and sender unit assembly may be
removed through the inspection cover under the
rear bench seat and the fuel tank does not have to

Fuel level sensor
Tighten the mounting nut on the fuel and sender
unit assembly to a torque of 3.5 daN.m using the
tool Mot. 1264-01, holding the sender unit to pre-
vent it from rotating.
Make sure that the connector is firmly locked and
that the quick-release unions are securely clipped
on (with 2 O-ring seals)
Reconnect the battery.
Disconnect the connector and the pipes on the
sender unit side.
Remove the mounting nut (5) of the pump and
sender unit using tool Mot. 1264-01.
Slacken the nut, remove the tool, unscrew the nut
by hand and remove it.
Remove the pump and sender unit assembly.
NOTE : If several hours may pass between
removing and refitting the pump and sender unit
assembly, refit the nut to the fuel tank to prevent
it from distorting.
REFITTING OF THE PUMP AND SENDER UNIT
Check that the seal is in good condition and re-
place it if necessary.
Fit the seal on the fuel tank first before fitting the
Refit the pump and sender unit assembly in the
fuel tank by aligning it so that the indexing arrow

Oil level sensor
The sensor consists of a wire with a high
coefficient of resistance. When a current passes
through the wire it does not have the same
thermal conductivity when it is immersed in a
liquid as when it is in the open air.
After a fixed time a voltage difference is obtained
at the sensor terminals depending on the depth of
immersion of the wire. This voltage difference is
recorded by the electronic unit which manages
the level display function and also controls the
"low oil level" warning light display on the
central liquid crystal display.
When the ignition is switched on, the central dis-
play shows the oil level in a series of "blocks" for
approximately 30 seconds, before returning to
displaying the trip mileometer and total mileome-
ter functions (or "odometer" function).
NOTE : Turning the trip mileometer reset button
before the end of the timed period will display
the "odometer" function.
LOOKING FOR FAULTS
If a short circuit or an open circuit is detected
when the oil level is measured, the display will im-
mediately show the trip mileometer / clock dis-
The sensor resistance must be between 6 and 20
The sensor is deemed to be in short circuit for a va-
lue lower than 4 ohms.
The sensor is deemed to be in open circuit for a va-
lue higher than 22 ohms.
Example : F engine

Coolant temperature sensor
A thermistor transmits a variation in resistance to
a receiver, depending on the coolant
temperature, and a threshold overshoot switch
illuminates the warning light on the instrument
panel when the temperature reaches 118°C.
Connect an ohmmeter between track 1 (K and E
engines) or track 2 (F engine) on the sensor and
Correct value : 160 to 1 250 Ω.
