Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Sealing and inflating tyres

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Sealing a tyre

  • Unscrew the cap from the tyre valve.
  • Use the valve insert extractor   to screw the valve insert out of the tyre valve. Place the insert on a clean surface.
  • Shake the tyre filler bottle   vigorously up and down several times.
  • Screw the filler hose   tightly onto the tyre filler bottle in a clockwise direction. The plastic foil on the plug is pierced automatically.
  • Remove the plug from the filler hose   and place the open end fully on the tyre valve.
  • Hold the bottle upside down and inject the entire contents of the filler bottle into the tyre.
  • Remove the empty tyre filler bottle from the valve.
  • Use the valve insert extractor   to screw the valve insert back onto the tyre valve.

Inflating the tyre

  • Screw the tyre filler hose   of the air compressor tightly onto the tyre valve.
  • Check that the bleed screw   is closed.
  • Start the engine and let it run.
  • Insert the plug   into one of the vehicle's 12-volt sockets   .
  • Use the ON/OFF switch   to switch on the air compressor.
  • Run the compressor until the tyre pressure has reached 2.0 – 2.5 bar (29 – 36 psi / 200 – 250 kPa)  . The maximum running time is 8 minutes  .
  • Switch off the air compressor.
  • If a pressure level of 2.0 – 2.5 bar (29 – 36 psi / 200 – 250 kPa) cannot be achieved, unscrew the tyre filler hose from the tyre valve.
  • Drive (or reverse) the vehicle approx. 10 metres so that the sealing compound is more evenly distributed in the tyre.
  • Screw the tyre filler hose for the air compressor firmly back onto the tyre valve and inflate the tyre again.
  • If the required pressure still cannot be reached, the tyre is too badly damaged. The tyre cannot be sealed with the breakdown set. Do not drive on. Seek expert assistance  .
  • Disconnect the air compressor and unscrew the tyre filler hose from the tyre valve.
  • Drive the vehicle no faster than 80 km/h (50 mph) once a tyre pressure of 2.0 – 2.5 bar (29 – 36 psi / 200 – 250 kPa) has been reached.
  • Check the tyre pressure after driving for 10 minutes   .

WARNING

The tyre filler hose and the air compressor can get hot during pumping.
  • Protect your hands and skin from the hot components.
  • Do not place the hot tyre filler hose and the hot air compressor on any inflammable materials.
  • Before packing away, allow the device to cool down fully.
  • If the tyre will not inflate to at least 2.0 bar (29 psi / 200 kPa), the tyre is too damaged. The sealant is unable to seal the tyre. Do not drive on. Seek professional assistance.

NOTICE

Switch the air compressor off after a maximum of 8 minutes to avoid overheating. Let the air compressor cool down for a few minutes before switching it back on.
