Kia Sportage: If you have a flat tire (With tire mobility kit) / Using the Tire Mobility Kit

Kia Sportage QL (2015-2019) Owners Manual / What to do in an emergency / If you have a flat tire (With tire mobility kit) / Using the Tire Mobility Kit

- Detach the speed restriction label (1) from the sealant bottle (2), and place it in a highly visible place inside the vehicle such as on the steering wheel to remind the driver not to drive too fast.

1. Thoroughly shake the sealant bottle.

2. Screw connection hose (10) onto the connector of the sealant bottle.

3. Ensure that button (9) on the compressor is not pressed.

4. Unscrew the valve stem cap from the flat tire and screw the filling hose (3) of the sealant bottle onto the valve stem.

CAUTION

If sealant is applied when the valve is incompletely connected, the sealant may backdraft and result in valve clogging.

5. Insert the sealant bottle into the housing of the compressor (5) so that the bottle is upright.

✽ NOTICE

If a visible foreign object has punctured the tire, do not remove it before using Tire Mobility Kit.

6. Ensure that the compressor is switched off, position 0.

7 Connect between compressor and the vehicle power outlet (3) using the cable and connectors.

8. With the engine start/stop button position on or ignition switch position on, switch on the compressor and let it run for approximately 5~7 minutes to fill the sealant up to proper pressure. (refer to the Tire and Wheels, chapter 9). The inflation pressure of the tire after filling is unimportant and will be checked/corrected later. Be careful not to overinflate the tire and stay away from the tire when filling it.

WARNING - Tire pressure

Do not attempt to drive your vehicle if the tire pressure is below 29 psi (200kPa). This could result in an accident due to sudden tire failure.

9. Switch off the compressor.

10. Detach the hoses from the sealant bottle connector and from the tire valve stem.

Return the Tire Mobility Kit to its storage location in the vehicle.

WARNING - Carbon monoxide

Carbon monoxide poisoning and suffocation is possible if the engine is left running in a poorly ventilated or unventilated location (such as inside a building).
