TIRE REPAIR KIT SAFETY INFORMATION

WARNING

To prevent serious injury or death, take the following safety precautions:

WARNING

If you have a flat tire while driving, do not initiate any sharp or abrupt steering and/or braking maneuvers. Let the vehicle slow down as much as is safely possible while leaving the roadway.

WARNING

Before exiting the vehicle, always make sure that the gear selector is in the Park (P) position, the engine is off, the Parking brake is applied and the Smart key is removed from the vehicle. Turn on the hazard warning lamps.

WARNING

Do not use the tire repair kit if the tire has been damaged by driving while seriously under-inflated or flat. Re-inflating a tire after it has been driven severely under-inflated or flat may cause a blowout and a serious crash.

WARNING

Do not use the tire repair kit if the tire is separated from the wheel, has damaged sidewalls, or a large puncture.

WARNING

Only use the tire repair kit to seal damage located within the tire tread area and to seal punctures less than 1/4 inch (6mm) diameter.
