Tips for Use of the Kit

To ensure safe operation of the kit:

  • Read all instructions and cautions fully.
  • Before operating the kit, make sure your vehicle is safely off the road and away from moving traffic. Turn on the hazard lights.
  • Always set the parking brake to ensure the vehicle doesn't move unexpectedly.
  • Do not remove any foreign objects, such as nails or screws, from the tire.
  • When using the kit, leave the engine running (only if the vehicle is outdoors or in a well-ventilated area) so the compressor does not drain the vehicle's battery.
  • Do not allow the compressor to operate continuously for more than 15 minutes. This will help prevent the compressor from overheating.
  • Never leave the kit unattended during operation.
  • Sealant compound contains latex. Those with latex sensitivities should use appropriate precautions to avoid an allergic reaction.
  • Keep the kit away from children.
  • Only use the kit when the ambient temperature is between -22°F (-30°C) and 158°F (70°C).
  • Only use the sealing compound before the use-by date. The use-by date is on a label on the sealant canister and can be seen through the rectangular viewing window on the bottom of the compressor. Check the use-by date regularly and replace the canister when the sealant expires.
  • Do not store the kit unsecured inside the passenger compartment of the vehicle as it may cause injury during a sudden stop or crash. Always store the kit in its original location.
  • After sealant use, the tire pressure monitoring system sensor and valve stem on the wheel must be replaced by an authorized Ford dealer.
  • Operating the kit could cause an electrical disturbance in radio, CD, and DVD player operation.

What to do when a Tire Is Punctured

A tire puncture within the tire's tread area can be repaired in two stages with the kit.

  • In the first stage, the tire will be reinflated with a sealing compound and air. After the tire has been inflated, you will need to drive the vehicle a short distance 4 mi (6 km) to distribute the sealant in the tire.
  • In the second stage, you will need to check the tire pressure and adjust, if necessary, to the vehicle's specified tire inflation pressure.
