Kia Forte 2019-2020 (BD) Owners Manual / What to do in an emergency / If you have a flat tire (With Tire Mobility Kit) / Using the Tire Mobility Kit

1. 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.

2. Filling the sealant: Strictly follow the specified sequence, otherwise the sealant may escape under high pressure.

CAUTION

Before using the tire repair kit, please read the instructions attached on the sealant case carefully. Detach the speed limit label on the sealant case and put it in a highly visible place. Always drive within the speed limit.

3. Shake the sealant bottle.

4. Screw the filling hose (a) onto the connector of the sealant bottle (1).

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

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

7. Unscrew the valve cap from the valve of the defective wheel and screw filling hose (3) of the sealant bottle onto the valve.

✽ NOTICE

If the sealant is injected when the tire air pressure injection valve and sealant injection hose are not fully interlocked, the sealant may overflow and clog the valve.

8. Connect the compressor to the vehicle power outlet using the cable and connectors (4).

✽ NOTICE

Only use the front passenger side power outlet.

9. With the engine start/stop button 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 “Tires and wheels” section in Chapter 8). 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.

WARNING

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 hose from the sealant bottle connector and from the tire valve.

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

WARNING

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).

Distributing the sealant

12. Immediately drive approximately 7~10 km (4~6 miles) or about 10 minutes to evenly distribute the sealant in the tire.

When you use the Tire Mobility Kit, the tire pressure sensors and wheel may be stained by sealant. Therefore, remove the tire pressure sensors and wheel stained by sealant and have your vehicle inspected by an authorized Kia dealer.
