❒ Should it be impossible to reach the pressure specified, move the car forward or backward for approx. ten metres in order to distribute the sealing fluid inside the tyre, then repeat the inflation operation;
❒ If after this operation it is still impossible to obtain the specified pressure, stop driving and contact immediately Fiat Dealership;
❒ After reaching the proper tyre pressure, start driving immediately to distribute the sealing fluid inside the tyre evenly. After about 10 minutes, stop and check the tyre pressure again; engage the handbrake;

WARNING

Apply the sticker in a visible position for the driver to indicate that the tyre has been treated with the quick tyre repair kit. Drive carefully especially when cornering. Do not exceed 80 km/h and avoid heavy braking and accelerating.

WARNING

If read pressure is below 1.3 bar, stop immediately and contact Fiat Dealership. If read pressure is equal to at least 1.3 bar, restore proper pressure (engine running and handbrake on) and then drive with the utmost care.

WARNING

If when restoring pressure it is impossible to reach at least 1.8 bar, stop immediately since the tyre is too damaged and the quick repair kit cannot guarantee proper seal, contact Fiat Dealership.
