11. Turn the ignition key to the ON/RUN position.
12. Press the switch on the air pump to 1. The air pump
should start to inflate the tire.
13. After five minutes, the tire should be inflated to at
least 26 psi (180 kPa) on the pressure gauge.
14. If the tire doesn’t inflate to this level, press the air
pump switch to 0, disconnect the TIREFIT system from
the tire, and drive the vehicle back and forth approxi-
mately 30 feet (9 m) to distribute the sealant more evenly
within the tire.
15. Attach the air pump hose directly to the tire, press the
switch to 1, and inflate the tire again. NOTE: If a tire
pressure of 26 psi (180 kPa) is not reached after five
minutes, the tire is too badly damaged. Do not attempt to
drive the vehicle further, and call for assistance.
If a tire pressure of 26 psi (180 kPa) is obtained, press
the air pump switch to 0, turn the ignition switch to the
OFF/LOCK position, and disconnect the TIREFIT system.
17. Drive the vehicle for about 10 minutes to ensure
optimum distribution of the tire sealant within the tire.
18. Check the pressure in the tire. If the pressure is above
19 psi (130 kPa), inflate the tire to the pressure indicated
on the tire pressure label on the driver side latch pillar.
19. Have the tire inspected at the earliest opportunity at
an authorized dealer or tire service center.
Do not exceed 50 mph (80 km/h) until the tire
has been inspected.
If a pressure of at least 19 psi (130 kPa) cannot
be maintained in the tire, the tire is too badly damaged.
Do not attempt to drive the vehicle further, and call for
Do not operate the electric air pump for more
than eight minutes to avoid overheating. The air pump
may be used again once it has cooled down.
Replace the TIREFIT sealant bottle once every
four years to assure optimum operation of the system.
If TIREFIT is liquid, clean water and a damp
cloth will remove the material from the vehicle or tire and
wheel components. Once TIREFIT sealing material has
dried, it can easily be peeled off and properly discarded.
