Kia Carens: If you have a flat tire (with tire mobility kit) / Using the Tire Mobility Kit (TMK)

Kia Carens RP (2013-2018) Owners Manual / What to do in an emergency / If you have a flat tire (with tire mobility kit) / Using the Tire Mobility Kit (TMK)

1. Detach the speed restriction label (0) from the sealant bottle (1), 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.

2. Shake the sealant bottle.

3. Screw connection hose (9) onto the connector of the sealant bottle.

4. Ensure that screw cap (8) is closed.

5. Unscrew the valve cap from the valve of the flat tire and screw filling hose (2) of the sealant bottle onto the valve.

6. Insert the sealant bottle into the housing (4) of the compressor so that the bottle is upright.

7. Ensure that the compressor is switched off, position "O".

8. Plug the compressor power cord into the front passenger side power outlet of the vehicle.

WARNING

Only use the front passenger side power outlet when connecting the power cord.

9. 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.

When the tire and wheel are damaged, do not use Tire Mobility Kit for your safety.

CAUTION - Tire pressure

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

10. Switch off the compressor.

11. Detach the hoses from the sealant bottle connector and from the tire valve.

Return the TMK 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).
