The Extraction of the Fluid Sealant of the Tyre Inflator

NOTE:
  • The TRK (Temporary Repair Kit) is employed for the spare-tyreless models instead of a spare tyre.
  • The fluid sealant used to reinflate a flat tyre must be extracted and retrieved from the inside. The out-of-date fluid sealant and the extracted fluid sealant must be retrieved by the transactor for the sake of the environment after separated as well as oil waste such as the oil and fluid, because they include the ethylene glycol, the industrial waste. (The address and telephone number of the transactor is labeled on the bottle.)
Do not dispose the tyre with the fluid sealant filled.
  1. Raise the vehicle, and support it with safety stands in the proper locations.
  1. Deflate the tyre.
  1. Cut off the valve (A) at its base, and push the remaining rubber portion of the valve into the tyre.
    Avoid damage to the wheel disc when using the tools.
    NOTE: Replace the valve with a new one when reassembling the tyre.
  1. Put the tyre on the working table, and set it up.
    NOTE: Be careful not to spill the fluid sealant from the drain hole (B).

  1. Use the empty bottle (A) to extract the fluid sealant. Insert the tube into the tyre through the drain hole, and stick it down until the end of the tube is immersed into the fluid sealant (B).
  1. Set the empty bottle in the lower position than the tyre and pump the fluid sealant into the bottle. To empty the tyre, pump it completely by shaking the tyre or doing something else.

  1. Bend and bind up the tube of the bottle (A) that is filled with the fluid sealant as shown in the figure.
  1. If you reuse the tyre, completely wipe up the fluid sealant sat around the drain hole, fix a flat, and replace the valve.
    NOTE:
    • Wipe the fluid sealant completely so that the beaded edge of the tyre and the mating portion of the wheel rim and the bead are cleared.
    • The damaged portion such as punctures may be filled with the fluid sealant, and can not be found depending on the extent of the damage.
    • If you drive on a flat tyre, often check the tyre pressure and replace the tyre with a normal one when you detect any abnormality (air pressure reduction in the tyre).
