Inflating tyres with compressor from the emergency 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.

Plug the electrical cable into the closest 12 V socket and start the car.

Warning

Inhaling car exhaust fumes could result in danger to life. Never leave the engine running in sealed areas or areas that lack sufficient ventilation.

Warning

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).

Important

The compressor must not be operated for longer than 10 minutes - risk of overheating.

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.
