Renault Clio: Tyre inflation kit

Renault Clio. Tyre inflation kit


The kit repairs tyres when tread A has been damaged by objects smaller than 4 mm. It cannot repair all types of puncture, such as cuts larger than 4 mm, or cuts in tyre sidewall B.

Ensure also that the wheel rim is in good condition.

Do not pull out the foreign body causing the puncture if it is still in the tyre.

Do not attempt to use the inflation kit if the tyre has been damaged as a result of driving with a puncture.

You should therefore carefully check the condition of the tyre sidewalls before any operation.

Driving with underinflated, flat or punctured tyres can be dangerous and may make the tyre impossible to repair.

This repair is temporary

A tyre which has been punctured should always be inspected (and repaired, where possible) as soon as possible by a specialist.

When taking a tyre which has been repaired using this kit to be replaced, you must inform the specialist.

When driving, vibration may be felt due to the presence of the repair product injected into the tyre.

The kit is only approved for inflating the tyres of the vehicle originally equipped with the kit.

It must never be used to inflate the tyres of another vehicle, or any other inflatable object (rubber ring, rubber boat, etc.).

Avoid spillage on skin when handling the repair liquid bottle. If droplets do leak out, rinse them off with plenty of water.

Keep the repair kit away from children.

Do not dispose of the empty bottle in the countryside. Return it to your approved dealer or to a recycling organisation.

The bottle has a limited service life which is indicated on its label.

Check the expiry date.

Contact an approved dealer to replace the inflation tube and repair product bottle.

Depending on the vehicle, in the event of a puncture, use the kit located in the boot or underneath the luggage compartment carpet.

Before using this kit, park the vehicle at a sufficient distance from traffic, switch on the hazard warning lights, apply the handbrake, ask all passengers to leave the vehicle and keep them away from traffic.

With the engine running and the parking brake applied,

  • unroll the hose from the container;
  • connect the compressor hose 3 to the container’s inlet 8;
  • depending on the vehicle, connect the container 8 to the compressor from the container recess 7;
  • unscrew the valve cap on the relevant wheel and screw on the container’s inflation adapter 1;
  • adapter 2 must be connected to the vehicle accessories socket;
  • press switch 4 to inflate the tyre to the recommended pressure (please refer to the information in the section on “Tyre pressure”);
  • after a maximum of 15 minutes, stop inflating and read the pressure (on pressure gauge 5).

    Note: while the container is emptying (approximately 30 seconds), the pressure gauge 5 will briefly indicate a pressure of up to 6 bar. The pressure will then drop.

  • adjust the pressure: to increase it, continue inflation with the kit; to reduce it, press button 6.

If a minimum pressure of 1.8 bar is not reached after 15 minutes, repair is not possible; do not drive the vehicle but contact an approved dealer.

If the vehicle is parked on the hard shoulder, you must warn other road users of your vehicle’s presence with a warning triangle or with other devices as per the legislation applying to the country you are in.

Once the tyre is correctly inflated, remove the kit: slowly unscrew the inflation adapter 1 to prevent any repair product from escaping and store the container in plastic packaging to prevent the product from escaping.

Nothing should be placed around the driver’s feet as such objects may slide under the pedals during sudden braking manoeuvres and obstruct their use.
  • Affix the driving recommendation label to the dashboard where it can easily be seen by the driver;
  • Put the kit away.
  • At the end of this initial inflation operation, air will still escape from the tyre. You must drive a short distance in order to seal the hole.
  • Start immediately and drive at between 12 and 40 mph (20 and 60 km/h) in order to distribute the product evenly in the tyre and, after driving for 2 miles (3 km), stop and check the pressure.
  • If the pressure is greater than 1.3 bar but less than the recommended pressure (refer to the label affixed to the edge of the driver’s door), readjust it. Otherwise, please contact an authorised dealer: the tyre cannot be repaired.

Precautions when using the kit

The kit should not be operated for more than 15 consecutive minutes.

Please be aware that a poorly tightened or missing valve cap can make the tyres less airtight and may lead to pressure loss.

Always use valve caps identical to those fitted originally and tighten them fully.

Following repair with the kit, do not travel further than 120 miles (200 km). In addition, reduce your speed and under no circumstances exceed 48 mph (80 km/h). The sticker, which you must affix in a prominent position on the dashboard, reminds you of this.

Depending on the country or local legislation, a tyre repaired with the inflation kit may need to be replaced.
