How to use the Acura Tire Replacement and Inflator Kit

Six steps to an inflated tire.

If you’ve landed on this post because one of your Acura’s tires just suffered some damage, don’t worry, we’re going to get through this together. And the good news is that with the Tire Replacement and Inflator Kit, you probably won’t need to labour over a jack and tire iron, wrenching and sweating on the side of the road to take off the flat and put on the spare. The Tire Replacement and Inflator Kit can repair a puncture to the tread of the tire up to the size of a large nail, so as long as the damage wasn’t done to the sides of the tire, there’s a good chance you’ll be on your way to fixing your tire just as soon as you’re done watching this How-to video:

Step 1: Open the kit and read the instructions.

Step 2: Attach sealant hose to valve stem and tighten it.

Step 3: Connect the power cable to the power outlet inside the car.

Step 4: Start the car engine.

Step 5: Turn the dial to the “Sealant” position and push the kit power button. It will now start inflation.

Step 6: Keep your eye on the pressure gauge and inflate the tire to the pressure written on the pressure gauge found on the driver’s side door jam label.

And that’s it! Six steps to an inflated tire. Keep in mind that this is a temporary fix and your speed should be limited to less than 80 kph. It’s also wise to consult your driver’s manual to see your vehicle’s restrictions following tire repairs.

If your tire hasn’t taken any damage, but just needs a bit of air, the kit can also be used like a standard air pump by selecting the “Air” position on the dial.

Because the sealant in the kit can only be used once, be sure to replace your Tire Replacement and Inflator Kit at an Acura parts department, or just give us a call.
