General information and safety notes

Your vehicle is equipped with a tyre repair kit: the Tyre Mobility System. In the event of a tyre puncture, sealing compound and an air compressor are located in the luggage compartment under the floor panel. The Tyre Mobility System will reliably seal punctures caused by the penetration of a foreign body of up to about 4 mm in diameter. It is not necessary to remove the foreign body from the tyre. Instructions for the sealing compound are located on the sealing compound container. Notes for the proper use of the air compressor are included in an additional instruction leaflet.

WARNING

• Do not attempt to repair a puncture with the sealing compound if the tyre has been damaged by driving the car after the tyre has lost its air.

• Always observe warnings and follow instructions concerning compressor and sealing compound carefully.

• Do not drive faster than 80 km/h, avoid heavy acceleration, hard braking and fast cornering.

• Tyres which have been repaired with sealing compound are only suitable for temporary use over a short period. Therefore, please drive carefully to the next available qualified workshop.


For the sake of the environment

Used sealing compound containers should be disposed of at a proper facility.


Note

Seek professional assistance if the repair of a tyre puncture is not possible with the sealing compound.
