Kia Soul (SK3) 2020-2020 Owners Manual / What to do in an emergency / If you have a flat tire (with Tire Mobility Kit) / Notes on the safe use of the Tire Mobility Kit

  • Park your car at the side of the road so that you can work with the TMK away from moving traffic. Place your warning triangle in a prominent place to make passing vehicles aware of your location.
  • To be sure your vehicle will not move, even when you're on fairly level ground, always set your parking brake.
  • Only use the TMK for sealing/inflation passenger car tires. Do not use on motorcycles, bicycles or any other type of tires.
  • Do not remove any foreign objects – such as nails or screws – that have penetrated the tire.
  • Before using the TMK, read the precautionary advice printed on the sealant bottle!
  • Provided the car is outdoors, leave the engine running. Otherwise operating the compressor may eventually drain the car battery.
  • Never leave the TMK unattended while it is being used.
  • Do not leave the compressor running for more than 10 min. at a time or it may overheat.
  • Do not use the TMK if the ambient temperature is below -30 °C (-22 °F).
  • When the tire and wheel are damaged, do not use Tire Mobility Kit for your safety.
