Land Rover Discovery: Checking the tyre pressure after a repair

Land Rover Discovery (2009–2016) Owner's Manual / Tyre repair kit / Checking the tyre pressure after a repair

  • When driving the vehicle, if you experience vibrations, abnormal steering, or noises, reduce speed immediately. Drive with extreme caution at reduced speed, to the first safe place to stop the vehicle.

    Visually examine the tyre and check its pressure. If there are any signs of damage or deformity to the tyre, or the tyre pressure is below 1.3 bar (19 psi, 130 kPa), do not continue driving.

  • Consult a tyre repair centre or a Retailer/Authorised Repairer, for advice concerning the replacement of a tyre after using a tyre repair kit.
  1. Drive the vehicle for 3 km, then stop in a safe place. Carry out a visual examination of the tyre's condition.
  2. Make sure that the sealant container is in its original position.
  3. Screw the inflation hose connector firmly onto the tyre valve.
  4. Read the tyre pressure from the gauge.
  5. If the pressure of the sealant filled tyre is above 1.3 bar (19 psi, 130 kPa), adjust the pressure to the correct value. If there are signs of damage or deformity to the tyre, or the tyre pressure is below 1.3 bar, do not continue driving.
  6. Make sure that the compressor switch is in the Off (O) position and insert the power cable connector into the auxiliary power socket. If the vehicle is in a well ventilated area, start the engine.
  7. Switch the compressor to On (I) and inflate the tyre to the correct pressure.
  8. To check the tyre pressure, switch off the compressor and then read the pressure from the gauge.
  9. When the compressor is off, if the tyre pressure is too high, release the required amount of pressure using the pressure release valve.
  10. Once the tyre is inflated to the correct pressure, switch off the compressor and remove the power plug from the auxiliary socket.

Note: The use of the tyre repair kit sealant may lead to error prompts and incorrect readings of the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Therefore, use the tyre repair kit pressure gauge to check and adjust the damaged tyre's inflation pressure.

  1. Unscrew the inflation hose connector from the tyre valve, replace the tyre valve cap and the inflation hose connector protective cap.
  2. Make sure that the tyre repair kit is stowed securely in the vehicle.
  3. Drive to the nearest tyre repair centre or Retailer/Authorised Repairer, for a replacement tyre to be fitted. Make sure that you make the repair centre aware that the tyre repair kit has been used, before the tyre is removed.
  4. The tyre inflation hose, the receiver, and the sealant bottle must be replaced once a new tyre has been fitted.

Only sealant bottles which are completely empty should be disposed of with normal household waste. Sealant bottles which contain some sealant, and the tyre inflation hose, should be disposed of by a tyre specialist or your Retailer/ Authorised Repairer, in compliance with local waste disposal regulations.
