USING THE TIRE REPAIR KIT

WARNING

To prevent serious injury or death, take the following safety precautions when using the tire repair kit:

WARNING

Only use the tire repair kit within the -22°F to 158°F (-30°C to +70°C) temperature range.

WARNING

Never start the engine and leave it running when the vehicle is in an enclosed space. Exhaust gases are poisonous and cause unconsciousness and death if inhaled.

WARNING

If the tire inflation pressure does not reach 26 psi (1.8 bar, 180 kPa) within 7 minutes, the tire may have suffered excessive damage. A temporary repair will not be possible, and the vehicle should NOT be driven until the tire has been replaced.

WARNING

Only use the tire repair kit for the vehicle with which it was supplied, and do not use the tire repair kit for any other purpose than a tire repair.

WARNING

Never leave the tire repair kit unattended, when in use.

WARNING

Always keep children and animals at a safe distance from the tire repair kit, when in use.

WARNING

Avoid skin contact with the sealant which contains natural rubber latex and could cause skin irritation.

CAUTION

Do not attempt to remove foreign objects, such as nails, screws, etc., from the tire.

CAUTION

To prevent overheating, do not operate the compressor continuously for longer than 10 minutes.

NOTES

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