Filling in tire sealant
The tire sealant can be found in the right-hand box in the luggage compartment. The compressor is located under the cover in the luggage compartment.

The tire sealant can be used to seal small cuts, especially in the tire tread.

Sealing the tire with the tire sealant is only an emergency solution so you can drive to the nearest workshop. Even if the tire is air-tight, it may only be used for short journeys in an emergency.

The tire sealant set comprises:
– a filler bottle
– a filler hose
– a valve turner
– a spare valve insert
– a sticker with the maximum permitted speed
– a compressor
– operating instructions
