Fix & go (quick tyre repair kit)

On request the car can be fitted with a quick tyre repair kit, called УFix & GoФ, replacing the common tool kit and the spare wheel.

The Fix & Go kit is located in the boot under the moquette covering and it includes the following:

❒ a cylinder (A) containing the sealing fluid with filler hose and a sticker

❒ a cylinder (A) containing the sealing fluid with filler hose and a sticker (B) with caution УMAX 80 km/hФ, to be affixed in a visible position for the driver (instrument panel) after repairing the tyre;
❒ a compressor (C) including gauge, connections and tool for removing the valve body; the latter can be found by opening the compressor slide lid (D).

IMPORTANT If puncture has been caused by foreign bodies, it is possible to repair

IMPORTANT If puncture has been caused by foreign bodies, it is possible to repair tyres showing damages up to max 4 mm diameter.

The figure shows:

(A): repairable tyre areas (holes or damages with max. 4 mm diameter);
(B): tyre areas NOT repairable.

IMPORTANT Holes and damages on the tyre side walls cannot be repaired; permanent sealing of damages located on tyre tread within 25 mm from tyre side wall is not guaranteed. Check tyre side walls accurately.

IMPORTANT Do not use the quick tyre repair kit if damaging is due to running with flat tyre.

It should be noticed that:

The sealing fluid of the quick tyre repair kit, effective with external temperatures between Ц30ºC and +80ºC, is not suitable for final repair.

The fluid inside the tyre can be easily removed with water.

The sealing fluid has unlimited life.

WARNING

Repairs are not possible in case of damages on the wheel rim (bad groove distortion causing air loss) or tyre out of the limit areas previously described. Do not remove foreign bodies (screws or nails) from the tyre.

WARNING

The cylinder contains propylene glycol; this substance can be harmful and irritant: do not swallow and avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothes; in case of contact rinse immediately with water. Call the doctor in case of allergic reactions. Keep the cylinder in the case provided for the purpose and far from heat or children.
