Emergency puncture repair - rechecking
Emergency puncture repair, where the emergency puncture repair kit (TMK - Temporary Mobility Kit) is used to seal a puncture and check and adjust the tyre pressure.
Check tyre pressure
Read the tyre pressure on the pressure gauge.
- If it is below 1.3 bar1 then the tyre is insufficiently sealed. The journey should not be continued. Contact a tyre centre.
- If the tyre pressure is higher than 1.3 bar1, 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.
Make sure the compressor is switched off. Detach the air hose and cable.
Refit the valve cover2
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.
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.
