Using the Emergency Flat Tyre Repair Kit


CAUTION

If the bottle is shaken after the injection hose is screwed on, tyre sealant could spray out from the injection hose. Tyre sealant contacting clothing or other objects may be impossible to remove.

Shake the bottle before screwing on the injection hose.

NOTE

The tyre sealant can be used at outside temperatures down to -30 °C (-22 °F). In extremely cold temperatures (0 °C (32 °F) or below), the tyre sealant hardens easily and injection of the sealant will be diffi cult. Warm the sealant inside the vehicle before doing the injection work.

  1. Remove the cap from the bottle. Screw on the injection hose with the bottle's inner cap left on to break the inner cap.

Using the Emergency Flat Tyre Repair Kit


CAUTION

  1. Turn the compressor switch on and infl ate the tyre carefully to the correct infl ation pressure.

WARNING

Never operate the compressor above 300 kPa (3.1 kgf/cm 2 , 3 bar, 43.5 psi): Operating the compressor above 300 kPa (3.1 kgf/cm 2 , 3 bar, 43.5 psi) is dangerous. When the infl ation pressure rises above 300 kPa (3.1 kgf/cm 2 , 3 bar, 43.5 psi), heated air will be exhausted from the back of the compressor and you could be burned.

CAUTION

If the compressor operates slowly or becomes hot, it indicates overheating.

Turn the compressor off immediately and leave it turned off for 30 minutes or longer.

NOTE

  1. When the tyre has been infl ated to the proper infl ation pressure, turn the compressor switch off and remove the compressor hose from the tyre valve.
  2. Install the tyre valve cap.
  3. Put the emergency fl at tyre repair kit in the boot and continue driving.

CAUTION

NOTE

(With tyre pressure monitoring system) If the tyre is not properly infl ated, the tyre pressure monitoring system warning light will illuminate.

  1. After driving the vehicle for 10 minutes or 5 km (3 miles), check the tyre pressure with the tyre pressure gauge equipped with the compressor. If the tyre pressure has fallen below the correct tyre pressure, infl ate the tyre to the correct pressure again following the steps from number 16.

CAUTION

NOTE

When checking the tyre infl ation pressure with the tyre pressure gauge on the compressor unit, make sure the compressor switch is turned off.

  1. If the tyre infl ation pressure remains stable, the tyre repair is complete.

    Drive the vehicle with care to an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer to have the tyre replaced.
