Check tyre pressure
Reconnect the equipment (for instructions on removing the valve cover, see Emergency puncture repair - operation).
Read the tyre pressure on the pressure gauge.
- If it is below 1.3 barthen the tyre is insufficiently sealed. The journey should not be continued. Contact a tyre centre.
1 bar = 100 kPa.
- If the tyre pressure is higher than 1.3 bar
1 bar = 100 kPa., the tyre must be inflated to the pressure specified in accordance with the tyre pressure table, see Tyres - approved tyre pressures. Release air using the pressure reducing valve if the tyre pressure is too high.
Do not unscrew the bottle, it is equipped with a reverse catch to prevent leakage.
Make sure the compressor is switched off. Detach the air hose and cable.
Refit the valve coverOnly 17" wheel Thia
Fit the valve cap.
Press one edge of the cover (without the hole) into place (nearest the tyre - B). Then fold the cover in toward the wheel rim - and at the same time, gently press down the angled top edge in order to help it in under the edge of the wheel rim. Check that the cover is flush with the surface of the wheel rim - if not, gently press in the part that is bulging out.
- 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 sealing fluid bottle and the hose must be replaced after use. Volvo recommends that this replacement is performed by an authorised Volvo workshop.
Check the tyre pressure regularly.
Volvo recommends that you drive to the nearest authorised Volvo workshop for the replacement/repair of the damaged tyre. Advise the workshop that the tyre contains sealing fluid.
You should not drive faster than 80 km/h after the emergency tyre repair kit has been used. Volvo recommends that you visit an authorised Volvo workshop for inspection of the sealed tyre (maximum driving distance is 200 km). The staff there can determine whether or not the tyre can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced.
