Emergency puncture repair

Emergency puncture repair*

Updated 7/23/2018

The emergency puncture repair kit, Temporary Mobility Kit (TMK), is used to seal a puncture and check and adjust the tyre pressure.

The emergency puncture repair kit consists of a compressor and a bottle of sealant. The sealing works as a temporary repair. The sealing fluid bottle must be replaced before its expiration date and after use. The sealing fluid effectively seals tyres punctured in the tread.

Note

The emergency puncture repair kit is only intended for sealing tyres with a puncture in the tread.

The emergency puncture repair kit has limited capacity to seal tyres which have punctures in the wall. Do not seal tyres with the emergency puncture repair kit if they have larger slits, cracks or similar damage. Connect the compressor to one of the car's 12 V sockets. Choose the socket that is nearest to the punctured tyre.

Important

If the compressor is connected to one of the two 12 V sockets, in the tunnel console, no other current consumer must be connected to the other one.

Note

The compressor for temporary emergency puncture repair has been tested and approved by Volvo.
