Tire service kit usage precautions

  • The Sealant Bottle (1) and Sealant Hose (6) are a one tire application use and need to be replaced after each use. Always replace these components immediately at your original equipment vehicle dealer.
  • When the Tire Service Kit sealant is in a liquid form, clean water, and a damp cloth will remove the material from the vehicle or tire and wheel components. Once the sealant dries, it can easily be peeled off and properly discarded.
  • For optimum performance, make sure the valve stem on the wheel is free of debris before connecting the Tire Service Kit.
  • You can use the Tire Service Kit air pump to inflate bicycle tires. The kit also comes with two needles, located in the Accessory Storage Compartment (on the bottom of the air pump) for inflating sport balls, rafts, or similar inflatable items. However, use only the Air Pump Hose (7) and make sure the Mode Select Knob (5) is in the Air Mode when inflating such items to avoid injecting sealant into them. The Tire Service Kit Sealant is only intended to seal punctures less than 1/4 inch (6 mm) diameter in the tread of your vehicle.
  • Do not lift or carry the Tire Service Kit by the hoses.

WARNING!

Do not attempt to seal a tire on the side of the vehicle closest to traffic. Pull far enough off the road to avoid the danger of being hit when using the Tire Service Kit.

Do not use Tire Service Kit or drive the vehicle under the following circumstances:

  • If the puncture in the tire tread is approximately 1/4 inch (6 mm) or larger.
  • If the tire has any sidewall damage.
  • If the tire has any damage from driving with extremely low tire pressure.
  • If the tire has any damage from driving on a flat tire.
  • If the wheel has any damage.
  • If you are unsure of the condition of the tire or the wheel.

Keep Tire Service Kit away from open flames or heat source.

A loose Tire Service Kit thrown forward in a collision or hard stop could endanger the occupants of the vehicle. Always stow the Tire Service Kit in the place provided. Failure to follow these warnings can result in injuries that are serious or fatal to you, your passengers, and others around you.
