Tyre repair kit*7
The repair can be undertaken on the vehicle immediately.
The repair with the tyre repair kit is not at all intended to replace a permanent repair
on the tyre, this repair only serves to reach the next specialist garage.
Do not use the tyre repair kit:•
to repair wheel damage,
in outside temperatures of less than -20 °C (-4 °F),
with tears or punctures greater than 4 mm in size,
to repair damage to the tyre wall,
when driving with very low tyre pressure or with a completely flat tyre,
if the use-by-date (see infl ation bottle) has passed.
If you find yourself in flowing traffic switch on the hazard warning lights
system and place the warning triangle on the side of the road at the prescribed
distance from your vehicle. Comply with the national legal regulations. In this
way you are protecting not only yourself but also other road users.
Park the vehicle as far away as possible from the traffic flow. Park on as flat
and firm a surface as possible.
A tyre filled with sealant has the same driving characteristics as a standard
Do not drive faster than 80 km/h, (50 mph).
Avoid accelerating at full throttle , sharp braking and fast cornering.
Check the tyre inflation pressure after driving 10 minutes.
Sealant is hazardous to heath. Remove immediately if it comes into contact
with the skin.For the sake of the environment
Used or aged sealing agent must be dispos ed of in accordance with environmental
Observe the manufacturer's usage instructions for the tyre repair kit.

Tow-starting and towing vehicle9
If you reached a tyre inflation pressure of 2.0 – 2.5 bar, resume driving at a maximum
speed of 80 km/h (50 mph).
Check the tyre inflation pressure after driving 10 minutes page 9, “Check after
driving for 10 minutes”.
During inflation, the tyre inflation hose and air compressor may get hot-
risk of injury!
Do not place hot tyre inflation hoses or hot air compressors on flammable
materials - risk of fire!
If you cannot inflate the tyre to at least 2.0 bar, this means the damage
sustained was too serious. The sealing agent cannot be used to seal the tyre. Do
not drive the vehicle. Get professional assistance.Caution
Switch off the air compressor after running 8 minutes at the latest - danger of over-
heating! Allow the air compressor to cool a few moments before switching it on
again.Check after driving for 10 minutesCheck the tyre inflation pressu re after driving 10 minutes.If the tyre inflation pressure is 1.3 bar or less:–Do not drive the vehicle! You cannot properly seal wi th tyre with the breakdown
– Obtain professional assistance.If the tyre inflation pressure is 1.3 bar or more:– Adjust the tyre inflation pressure to the corr ect value (see inside of fuel filler cap).
– Continue driving carefully to the nearest specialist garage at a maximum speed of 80 km/h (50 mph).
