Canada models with 5-speed A/T
This procedure is only to be used with the temporary tire repair kit.
The tire inflator and temporary repair sealant are used on vehicles without a spare tire.
The temporary repair sealant used to repair the tire must be removed before the tire is permanently repaired.
The temporary repair sealant (once used or past the expiration date) is considered hazardous waste, and must be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner (such as used engine oil and coolant). Check with your local regulations for proper disposal.
The expiration date of the temporary repair sealant is printed on the container.
Do not dispose of the tire still filled with sealant.
Raise the vehicle on a lift.
Deflate the tire.
Cut off the valve stem (A) at its base, and push the remaining rubber portion of the valve into the tire.
NOTE: Replace the valve with a new one when reassembling the tire.
Place the tire on a work bench with the valve stem near the bottom.
NOTE: Be careful not to spill the sealant from the valve hole (B).
Use the extraction bottle (A) and the tube to extract the sealant. Insert the tube into the tire through the valve hole, and stick it down until the end of the tube is immersed in the sealant (B).
Hold the extraction bottle in a lower position than the tire, and pump the fluid sealant into the bottle. To empty the tire, pump the remaining fluid out by shaking the tire.
Bend and bind up the tube of the bottle (A) filled with the fluid sealant as shown.
If you reuse the tire, completely wipe up the fluid sealant around the valve hole, repair the tire, and replace the valve.
Wipe the fluid sealant completely so that the beaded edge of the tire and the mating portion of the wheel rim and the bead are clean.
Damage such as punctures, may be filled with the fluid sealant, and may not be found depending on the extent of the damage.
