    Only use the tyre repair kit within the -30ºC to +70ºC temperature range.

  • Always keep children and animals at a safe distance from the tyre repair kit, when in use.
  • Do not stand directly beside the compressor when it is operating.

    Check the tyre's sidewall before inflation. If any cracks, damage, or deformities are apparent, do not inflate the tyre.

  • Watch the tyre's sidewall during inflation. If any cracks, bumps or similar damage, or deformities appear, switch off the compressor and deflate the tyre. Do not continue to use the tyre.

USING THE TYRE REPAIR KIT

Avoid skin contact with the sealant, which contains natural rubber latex.

  • Before attempting a tyre repair, make sure the vehicle is parked safely, as far away from passing traffic as possible.
  • Make sure that the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) is applied and Park (P) is engaged.
  • Do not attempt to remove foreign objects, such as nails, screws, etc., from the tyre.
  • Always run the engine when using the compressor, unless the vehicle is in an enclosed or poorly ventilated space, as this may cause asphyxiation.
  • To prevent overheating, do not operate the compressor continuously for longer than 10 minutes.

Note: All vehicle drivers and occupants should be made aware that a temporary repair has been made to a tyre fitted to the vehicle. They should also be made aware of the special driving conditions imposed when using a repaired tyre.
