WARNING

Before attempting to repair a tyre, refer to all of the warnings in the tyre repair system safety information section of the Owner's Handbook. Failure to do so could lead to serious injury or death.

See REIFENREPARATURSYSTEM-SICHERHEIT.

WARNING

If in any doubt regarding the ability to carry out the instructions, or if the warnings in this section cannot be complied with, seek qualified assistance. Failure to do so could lead to serious injury or death.

WARNING

Check the tyre's sidewall before inflation. If there are any cracks, bumps, or similar damage, do not attempt to inflate the tyre. Doing so could lead to serious injury or death.

WARNING

Watch the tyre's sidewall. If any cracks, bumps, or similar damage appear, switch off the compressor and let the air out by means of the pressure relief valve. Do not continue to use the tyre. Doing so could lead to serious injury or death.

WARNING

If the tyre's inflation pressure does not reach 1.8 bar (26 psi, 180 kPa) within 7 minutes, the tyre may have suffered excessive damage. A temporary repair is not possible. Do not drive the vehicle until the tyre has been replaced. Attempting a repair on the tyre could lead to serious injury or death.

To carry out the repair procedure:

  1. Open the tyre repair system. Peel off the warning label. Attach the label to the windscreen in a visible location, but not obstructing the driver’s field of vision.

    NOTES

    The speed and mileage recommendations for a repaired tyre are mandated and must be observed. The speed and mileage recommendations are stated on the warning label.

  2. Uncoil the inflation hose and the compressor's power cable.

  3. Unscrew the orange cap from the sealant bottle receiver and the sealant bottle cap.

  4. Screw the sealant bottle into the receiver clockwise, until it is completely tight.

    NOTES

    Do not pierce the sealant bottle before fitting it to the receiver.

    NOTES

    Screwing the sealant bottle onto the receiver pierces the sealant bottle's seal. Once the sealant bottle has been fitted onto the receiver, a ratchet prevents it from being removed.

  5. Remove the valve cap from the damaged tyre.

    NOTES

    Make sure that the valve cap is stored in a known location for future use.

  6. Remove the protective cap from the inflation hose and connect the inflation hose to the tyre valve.

    NOTES

    Make sure that the inflation hose is fully screwed on to the tyre valve.

  7. Make sure that the compressor switch is in the off (0) position. Insert the power cable connector into a power socket marked 12V. See ZUSATZSTECKDOSEN.

    NOTES

    Do not use the cigar lighter socket for this purpose.

    Start the engine. See ANLASSEN DES MOTORS.

  8. Switch the compressor to the on (I) position. Run the compressor for no longer than 10 minutes.

    WARNING

    Do not exceed the maximum tyre pressure stated on the sidewall of the tyre. Doing so could lead to serious injury or death.

    CAUTION

    When pumping the sealant through the tyre valve, sealant may leak from the puncture location. Remove any excess sealant immediately. Failure to do so may result in a surface residue that is difficult to remove.

    NOTES

    When pumping the sealant through the tyre valve, the compressor’s pressure gauge may rise up to 6 bar (87 psi, 600 kPa). The measurement at this point is the pressure within the compressor and not the pressure within the tyre. This is normal and should not cause alarm. The pressure drops again after approximately 30 seconds.

  9. Switch off the compressor.

  10. Check the inflation pressure on the compressor's pressure gauge.

    If the pressure is greater than 1.8 bar (26 psi, 180 kPa), continue with the repair procedure.

    If the pressure is less than 1.8 bar (26 psi, 180 kPa), do not attempt to drive the vehicle. Seek qualified assistance.

    See PANNENHILFE.

  11. Unscrew the inflation hose. Replace the hose cap. Securely store the tyre repair system in the vehicle.

    NOTES

    Drive the vehicle as soon as possible and within 1 minute of completing the tyre pressure check.

  12. Drive the vehicle 3 to 10 km (2 to 6 miles) or for 10 minutes. Do not exceed 80 km/h (50 mph).

  13. After driving 3 to 10 km (2 to 6 miles) or for 10 minutes, stop the vehicle in a safe place. Connect the compressor's inflation hose to the tyre valve and check the tyre pressure.

    If the tyre pressure is greater than 2.2 bar (32 psi, 220 kPa), the vehicle may be driven for up to 200 km (120 miles) at a maximum speed of 80 km/h (50 mph). It is recommended to drive to the nearest tyre repair centre or retailer/authorised repairer for a replacement tyre to be fitted. Be sure to make the repair centre aware that the tyre repair system has been used, before the tyre is removed. Proceed to step 16.

    If the tyre pressure is less than 1.3 bar (19 psi, 130 kPa), do not attempt to drive the vehicle. Seek qualified assistance.

    See PANNENHILFE.

    If the tyre pressure is greater than 1.3 bar (19 psi, 130 kPa) and less than 2.2 bar (32 psi, 220 kPa), switch on the compressor. Run the compressor for no longer than 10 minutes. Do not exceed the maximum tyre pressure stated on the sidewall of the tyre. If a tyre pressure of 2.2 bar (32 psi, 220 kPa) is not achieved, seek qualified assistance.

    See PANNENHILFE.

    If the tyre pressure is greater than 2.2 bar (32 psi, 220 kPa), proceed to step 14.

  14. Drive the vehicle 3 to 10 km (2 to 6 miles) or for 10 minutes. Do not exceed 80 km/h (50 mph).

  15. After driving 3 to 10 km (2 to 6 miles) or for 10 minutes, stop the vehicle in a safe place. Connect the compressor's inflation hose to the tyre valve and check the tyre pressure.

    If the tyre pressure is less than 2.2 bar (32psi, 220 kPa), do not attempt to drive the vehicle. Seek qualified assistance.

    See PANNENHILFE.

    If the tyre pressure is greater than 2.2 bar (32 psi, 220 kPa), the vehicle may be driven for up to 200 km (120 miles) at a maximum speed of 80 km/h (50 mph). It is recommended to drive to the nearest tyre repair centre or retailer/authorised repairer for a replacement tyre to be fitted. Be sure to make the repair centre aware that the tyre repair system has been used, before the tyre is removed.

  16. Securely store the compressor and sealant bottle in the correct storage positions. See REIFENREPARATURSYSTEM.

  17. Replace the tyre inflation hose, the receiver, and the sealant bottle once a new tyre has been fitted.
