Injecting Sealant and Air

NOTICE

Do not operate the temporary tire repair kit 
compressor for more than 15 minutes. The 
compressor can overheat and become permanently 
damaged.

There are two accessory power sockets:

In the console compartment

In the front of the passenger lower pocket

Accessory Power Sockets

 P. 187

Until the sealant injection is complete, the pressure 
shown on the pressure gauge will appear higher than 
actual. After the sealant injection is complete the 
pressure will drop and then begin to rise again as the 
tire is inflated with air. This is normal. To accurately 
measure the air pressure using the gauge, turn the air 
compressor off only after the sealant injection is 
complete.

WARNING

Running the engine with the vehicle in an 
enclosed or even partly enclosed area can 
cause a rapid build-up of toxic carbon 
monoxide.

Breathing this colorless, odorless gas can 
cause unconsciousness and even death. 
Only run the engine to power the air 
compressor with the vehicle outdoors.

Injecting Sealant and Air

If the required air pressure is not reached within 10 
minutes, the tire may be too severely damaged for 
the kit to provide the necessary seal, and your vehicle 
will need to be towed.

Changing a Flat Tire

If a tire goes flat while driving, grasp the steering wheel firmly, and brake gradually 
to reduce speed. Then, stop in a safe place. Replace the flat tire with a compact 
spare tire. Go to a dealer as soon as possible to have the full-size tire repaired or 
replaced.

1.

Park the vehicle on a firm, level, non-slippery surface and apply the parking brake.

2.

Put the transmission into 

(

3.

Turn on the hazard warning lights and set the power mode to VEHICLE OFF 
(LOCK).

Models with optional spare tire

1

Changing a Flat Tire

Follow compact spare precautions:
Periodically check the tire pressure of the compact 
spare. It should be set to the specified pressure. 
Specified Pressure: 60 psi (420 kPa, 4.2 kgf/cm

2

)

When driving with the compact spare tire, keep the 
vehicle speed under 50 mph (80 km/h). Replace with 
a full-size tire as soon as possible.

The compact spare tire and wheel in your vehicle are 
specifically for this model. Do not use them with 
another vehicle. Do not use another type of compact 
spare tire or wheel with your vehicle.

Do not mount tire chains on a compact spare tire.
If a chain-mounted front tire goes flat, remove one of 
the full-size rear tires and replace it with the compact 
spare tire. Remove the flat front tire and replace it 
with the full-size tire that was removed from the rear. 
Mount the tire chains on the front tire.

Do not use a puncture-repairing agent other than the 
Tire Repair Kit provided with your vehicle, as some 
tire repair agents can cause damage to the pressure 
sensors.

NOTICE

Do not use the jack if it doesn’t work properly. Call 
your dealer or a professional towing service.

How to Set Up the Jack

How to Set Up the Jack

Do not use the jack with people or luggage in the 
vehicle.

Use the jack provided in your vehicle.
Other jacks may not support the weight (“load”) or 
may not fit the jacking point.

The following instructions must be followed to use 
the jack safely:

Do not use while the engine is running.

Use only where the ground is firm and level.

Use only at the jacking points.

Do not get in the vehicle while using the jack.

Do not put anything on top of or underneath the 
jack.

WARNING

The vehicle can easily roll off the jack, 
seriously injuring anyone underneath.

Follow the directions for changing a tire 
exactly, and never get under the vehicle 
when it is supported only by the jack.
