Skoda Fabia: Sealing and inflating the tyre

Skoda Fabia Owners Manual

Sealing

  • Shake the tyre inflator bottle 10 » Fig. 145 on page 162 vigorously several times.
  • Firmly screw the inflation hose 3 onto the tyre inflator bottle 10 in a clockwise direction. The film on the cap is pierced automatically.
  • Remove the plug from the inflation hose 3 and plug the open end fully onto the tyre valve.
  • Hold the bottle 10 with the bottom facing upwards and fill all of the sealing agent from the tyre inflator bottle into the tyre.
  • Remove the empty tyre inflator bottle from the valve.
  • Screw the valve core back into the tyre valve using the valve remover 1 .

Inflating

  • Screw the air compressor tyre inflation hose 5 » Fig. 145 on page 162 firmly onto the tyre valve.
  • Check that the air release valve 7 is closed.
  • Start the engine and run it in idle.
  • Plug the connector 9 into 12 Volt socket » page 80, 12-volt power outlet.
  • Switch on the air compressor with the ON and OFF switch 8 .
  • Allow the air compressor to run until a pressure of 2.0 - 2.5 bar is achieved.

    Maximum run time of 8 minutes

  • Switch off the air compressor.
  • If you cannot reach an air pressure of 2.0 – 2.5 bar, unscrew the tyre inflation hose 5 from the tyre valve.
  • Drive the vehicle 10 metres forwards or backwards to allow the sealing agent to “distribute” in the tyre.
  • Firmly screw the tyre inflation hose 5 back onto the tyre valve and repeat the inflation process.
  • If you cannot reach the required tyre inflation pressure here either, this means the tyre has sustained too much damage. You cannot seal with tyre with the breakdown kit
  • Switch off the air compressor
  • Remove the tyre inflation hose 5 from the tyre valve.

Once a tyre pressure of 2.0 – 2.5 bar is reached, the journey may be continued at a maximum speed of 80 km/h (50 mph).

Check the tyre inflation pressure after driving for 10 minutes » page 163.

WARNING

  • The tyre inflation hose and air compressor may get hot as the tyre is being inflated – there is a risk of injury.
  • Do not place the hot tyre inflation hose or hot air compressor on flammable materials – there is a risk of fire.
  • If you cannot inflate the tyre to at least 2.0 bar, this means the damage sustained was too serious. The sealing agent cannot be used to seal the tyre. Do not drive the vehicle!
    Seek help from a specialist garage.

CAUTION

Switch off the air compressor after running 8 minutes at the latest – there is a risk of overheating. Allow the air compressor to cool a few minutes before switching it on again.

Check after 10 minutes' driving

Check the tyre inflation pressure after driving for 10 minutes! If the tyre pressure is 1.3 bar or less

Do not drive the vehicle. You
cannot properly seal with tyre with the breakdown kit.

If the tyre pressure is 1.3 bar or more

  • Adjust the tyre pressure to the correct value again (see inside of fuel filler cap).
  • Continue driving carefully to the nearest specialist garage at a maximum speed of 80 km/h (50 mph).
