Switch off the compressor after 10 minutes

Do not allow the compressor to run longer than 10 minutes; otherwise, the device will overheat and may be damaged.

Let the compressor run for approx. 3 to 8 minutes to fill the tire with sealant and achieve a tire inflation pressure of approx. 2.5 bar.

While the tire is being filled with sealant, the tire inflation pressure may sporadically reach approx. 5 bar. Do not reel off the compressor at this point.

If a tire inflation pressure of 2 bar is not reached:

1. Switch off the compressor.

2. Unscrew the filling hose from the wheel.

3. Drive 33 ft/10 m forward and back to distribute the sealant in the tire.

4. Inflate the tire again using the compressor.

If a tire inflation pressure of 2 bar cannot be reached, contact your service center.

Stowing the Mobility System

1. Unscrew the filling hose of the sealant container from the wheel.

2. Unscrew the connection hose of the compressor from the sealant container.

3. Connect the filling hose of the sealant container previously connected to the tire valve with the available connector on the sealant container.

This prevents leftover sealant from escaping from the container.

4. Wrap the empty sealant container in suitable material to avoid dirtying the cargo area.

5. Stow the Mobility System back in the vehicle.
