1. Remove the valve cap from the tire

1. Remove the valve cap from the tire valve stem.

2. Remove the sealant/air hose from

2. Remove the sealant/air hose from the packaging.

3. Attach the sealant/air hose onto the tire

3. Attach the sealant/air hose onto the tire valve stem. Screw it until it is tight.

WARNING

Tire sealant contains substances that are harmful and can be fatal if swallowed.

If accidentally swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Drink plenty of water and get medical attention immediately.

For skin or eye contact, flush with cool water and get medical attention if necessary.

In cold temperatures, the sealant may not flow easily.

In this situation, warm it up for five minutes before using.

The sealant can permanently stain clothing and other materials. Be careful during handling and wipe away any spills immediately.

4. Plug in the compressor to the accessory

4. Plug in the compressor to the accessory power socket.
- Be careful not to pinch the cord in a door or window.
- Do not plug any other electronic devices into other accessory power sockets.

5. Start the engine.

5. Start the engine.
-Keep the engine running while injecting sealant and air.
6. Turn the selector switch to SEALANT/AIR.

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.

NOTICE

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

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.

7. Press the inflator switch to turn on

7. Press the inflator switch to turn on the compressor.
- The compressor starts injecting sealant and air into the tire.
8. When the sealant injection is complete, continue to add air.

9.Models with P245/45R18 96V tires
After the air pressure reaches 32 psi (220 kPa), turn off the kit.

Models with 245/40R19 98W tires
After the air pressure reaches front:35 psi (240 kPa)/rear:33 psi (230 kPa), turn off the kit.
- To check the pressure, occasionally turn off the compressor and read the gauge.
10. Unplug the power plug from the accessory power socket.
11. Unscrew the sealant/air hose from the tire valve stem. Reinstall the valve cap.
12. Press the pressure relief button until the gauge returns to 0 psi (0 kPa).

If the required air pressure is not reached within 15 minutes, the tire may be too severely damaged for the kit to provide the necessary seal and your vehicle will need to be towed.

See an Acura dealer for a replacement sealant bottle and proper disposal of an empty bottle.

13. Apply the repair notification label to the

13. Apply the repair notification label to the flat surface of the wheel.
- The wheel surface must be clean to ensure the label adheres properly.
