Inflating tyres with the compressor from the puncture repair kit
The car's original tyres can be inflated using the compressor in the emergency puncture repair kit.
The compressor must be switched off. Make sure that the switch is in position 0 (Off), and take out the electrical cable and the air hose.
Unscrew the tyre's dust cap and screw in the air hose's valve connection to the bottom of the thread on the tyre's air valve.
Check that the pressure reducing valve on the air hose is fully screwed in.
Connect the electrical cable to the closest 12 V socket and start the car.
Inhaling car exhaust fumes could result in danger to life. Never leave the engine running in sealed areas or areas that lack sufficient ventilation.
Do not leave children in the car without supervision when the engine is running.
Start the compressor by flicking the switch to position I (On).
Risk of overheating. The compressor must not run for more than 10 minutes.
Inflate the tyre to the pressure specified on the tyre pressure label on the driver side door pillar. Release air using the pressure reducing valve if the tyre pressure is too high.
Switch off the compressor. Detach the air hose and the electrical cable.
Refit the dust cap on the tyre.
- After a tyre has been inflated, always refit the dust cap in order to avoid damage to the valve from gravel, dirt, etc.
- Only use plastic dust caps. Metal dust caps can rust and become difficult to unscrew.
The compressor is an electrical device. Follow local regulations related to waste management.
