Mercedes-Benz GLC : Flat tire / Using the TIREFIT kit

Requirements:

  • Tire sealant bottle and tire inflation compressor.
  • TIREFIT sticker
  • Gloves (depending on the vehicle equipment)

You can use TIREFIT tire sealant to seal perforation damage of up to 0.16 in (4 mm), particularly those in the tire contact surface. You can use TIREFIT in outside temperatures down to -4°F (-20°C).

WARNING Risk of accident when using tire sealant

The tire sealant may be unable to seal the tire properly, especially in the following cases:

  • There are large cuts or punctures in the tire (larger than damage previously mentioned)
  • The wheel rims have been damaged

After journeys with very low tire pressure or with flat tires

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Do not continue driving.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Consult a qualified specialist workshop.

WARNING Risk of injury and poisoning from tire sealant

The tire sealant is harmful and causes irritation. Do not allow it to come into contact with the skin, eyes or clothing, and do not swallow it. Do not inhale tire sealant fumes. Keep the tire sealant away from children.

If you come into contact with the tire sealant, observe the following:

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Switch on the tire inflation compressor using On/Off switch Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit.

The tire is inflated. First, tire sealant is pumped into the tire. The pressure may briefly rise to approximately 500 kPa (5 bar/73 psi).

Do not switch off the tire inflation compressor during this phase!

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Let the tire inflation compressor run for a maximum of ten minutes.

The tire should then have attained a tire pressure of at least 200 kPa (2.0 bar/ 29 psi).

If tire sealant leaks out, make sure you clean the affected area as quickly as possible. It is preferable to use clean water.

If you get tire sealant on your clothing, have it cleaned as soon as possible with perchloroethylene.

If, after ten minutes, a tire pressure of 200 kPa (2.0 bar/29 psi) has not been attained:

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Switch off the tire inflation compressor.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Unscrew the filling hose from the valve of the faulty tire.

Please note that tire sealant may leak out when unscrewing the filling hose.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Drive forwards or in reverse very slowly for approximately 33 ft (10 m).

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kitPump up the tire again.

After a maximum of ten minutes the tire pressure must be at least 200 kPa (2.0 bar/ 29 psi).

WARNING Risk of accident due to the specified tire pressure not being attained

If the minimum tire pressure is not reached after the specified time, the tire is too badly damaged. The tire sealant cannot repair the tire in this instance.

The braking and driving characteristics may be greatly impaired.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Do not continue driving.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Consult a qualified specialist workshop.

If, after ten minutes, a tire pressure of 200 kPa (2.0 bar/29 psi) has been attained:

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Switch off the tire inflation compressor.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Unscrew the filling hose from the valve of the faulty tire.

WARNING Risk of accident from driving with sealed tires

A tire temporarily sealed with tire sealant impairs the handling characteristics and is not suitable for higher speeds.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Adapt your driving style accordingly and drive carefully.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Do not exceed the maximum speed limit with a tire that has been repaired using tire sealant.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Observe the maximum permissible speed for a tire sealed with tire sealant 50 mph (80 km/h).

NOTE Staining caused by leaking tire sealant

After use, excess tire sealant may leak out from the filling hose.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Therefore, place the filling hose in the plastic bag that contained the TIREFIT kit.

ENVIRONMENTAL NOTE Environmental pollution caused by environmentally irresponsible disposal

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Store the tire sealant bottle and the tire inflation compressor.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Pull away immediately.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Stop driving after approximately ten minutes and check the tire pressure using the tire inflation compressor.

The tire pressure must now be at least 130 kPa (1.3 bar/19 psi).

WARNING Risk of accident due to the specified tire pressure not being attained

If the specified tire pressure is not reached, the tire is too badly damaged. The tire sealant cannot repair the tire in this instance.

The braking and driving characteristics may be greatly impaired.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Do not continue driving.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Consult a qualified specialist workshop.

In cases such as the one mentioned above, contact an authorized Mercedes-Benz Center. Or call 1-800-FOR-MERCedes (in the USA) or 1-800-387-0100 (in Canada).

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit Correct the tire pressure if it is still at least 130 kPa (1.3 bar/19 psi). See the Tire and Loading Information placard on the B‑pillar on the driver's side or the tire pressure table in the fuel filler flap for values.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit To increase the tire pressure: switch on the tire inflation compressor.

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit

Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit To reduce the tire pressure: press pressure release button Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit next to manometer Mercedes-Benz GLC. Using the TIREFIT kit.
