Safety measures

Filling the tire with sealing compound

Safety information

DANGER

If the exhaust pipe is blocked or ventilation is insufficient, harmful exhaust gases can enter into the vehicle. The exhaust gases contain pollutants which are colorless and odorless. In enclosed areas, exhaust gases can also accumulate outside of the vehicle. There is danger to life. Keep the exhaust pipe free and ensure sufficient ventilation.

NOTICE

The compressor can overheat during extended operation. There is a risk of damage to property, among other potential damage. Do not run the compressor for more than 10 minutes.

Filling

1. Shake the sealant bottle.

Wheels and tires

2. Pull filler hose completely out of the cover of the sealant bottle. Do not kink the hose.

6. With standby state or drive-ready state switched on, switch on the compressor.

Wheels and tires

Let the compressor run for max. 10 minutes to fill the tire with sealing compound and achieve a tire inflation pressure of approx. 2.0 bar.

While the tire is being filled with sealing compound, the tire inflation pressure may sporadically reach approx. 5 bar. Do not switch off the compressor in this phase.

Checking and adjusting the tire inflation pressure

Checking

1. Switch off the compressor.

2. Read the tire pressure on the tire pressure display.

To continue the trip, a tire inflation pressure of at least 2 bar must be reached.

Removing and stowing the sealant bottle

1. Unscrew the filler hose of the sealant bottle from the tire valve.

2. Press the red unlocking device.

3. Remove the sealant bottle from the compressor.

4. Wrap and store the sealant bottle in suitable material to avoid contamination of the cargo area.

Minimum tire inflation pressure is not reached

1. Pull the connector out of the power socket in the vehicle interior.

2. Drive 33 ft/10 m forward and back to distribute the sealing compound in the tire.

3. Screw the connection hose of the compressor directly onto the tire valve stem.

Wheels and tires

4. Insert the connector into the power socket in the vehicle interior.

Wheels and tires

5. With standby or drive readiness turned on, turn on the compressor and let it run for a maximum of 10 minutes.

When the tire pressure does not reach at least 2 bar, contact a manufacturer service center or another qualified service center or repair shop.

When a tire pressure of at least 2 bar is reached, see Minimum tire inflation pressure is reached.

6. Unscrew the connection hose of the compressor from the tire valve.

7. Pull the connector out of the power socket in the vehicle interior.

8. Stow the tire repair set in the vehicle.

Minimum tire inflation pressure is reached

1. Unscrew the connection hose of the compressor from the tire valve.

2. Pull the connector out of the power socket in the vehicle interior.

3. Stow the tire repair set in the vehicle.

4. Immediately drive approx. 5 miles/10 km to ensure that the sealing compound is evenly distributed in the tire.

Do not exceed a speed of 50 mph/80 km/h.

If possible, do not drive at speeds less than 12 mph/20 km/h.

Adjustment

1. Stop at a suitable location.

2. Screw the connection hose of the compressor directly onto the tire valve stem.

Wheels and tires

3. Insert the connector into the power socket in the vehicle interior.

4. Correct the tire inflation pressure to at least 2.0 bar:

5. Unscrew the connection hose of the compressor from the tire valve.

6. Pull the connector out of the power socket in the vehicle interior.

7. Stow the tire repair set in the vehicle.

Continuing the trip

Do not exceed the permissible maximum speed of 50 mph/80 km/h.

Reinitialize the Flat Tire Monitor.

Reset the Tire Pressure Monitor again.

Replace the faulty tire and the sealant bottle of the tire repair set promptly.
