Opel Corsa: Wheels and tyres / Tyre repair kit

Minor damage to the tyre tread can be repaired with the tyre repair kit.

Do not remove foreign bodies from the tyres.

Tyre damage exceeding 4 mm or that is at tyre's sidewall cannot be repaired with the tyre repair kit.

Warning

Do not drive faster than 80 km/h.

Do not use for a lengthy period. Steering and handling may be affected.

In the case of a flat tyre:

Apply the parking brake and engage first gear, reverse gear or P.

Opel Corsa. Tyre repair kit

The tyre repair kit is in the load compartment below the floor cover.

  1. Remove the sealant bottle and the compressor.
  2. Pull speed limit label from sealant bottle and place it in driver's visible area.

  1. Screw the compressor air hose to the connection on the sealant bottle.
  2. Fit the sealant bottle into the bracket on the compressor. Set the compressor near the tyre in such a way that the sealant bottle is upright.
  3. Unscrew valve cap from defective tyre.

  1. Screw the filler hose to the tyre valve.
  2. The switch on the compressor must be set to Opel Corsa. Tyre repair kit.
  3. Connect the compressor plug to the power outlet or cigarette lighter socket.

    To avoid discharging the battery, we recommend running the engine.

  1. Set the rocker switch on the compressor to I. The tyre is filled with sealant.
  2. The compressor pressure gauge briefly indicates up to 600 kPa (6 bar) whilst the sealant bottle is emptying (approx. 30 seconds). Then the pressure starts to drop.
  3. All of the sealant is pumped into the tyre. Then the tyre is being inflated.
  4. The prescribed tyre pressure should be obtained within 10 minutes.

    When the correct pressure is obtained, switch off the compressor.

    If the prescribed tyre pressure is not obtained within 10 minutes, remove the tyre repair kit. Move the vehicle one tyre rotation. Reattach the tyre repair kit and continue the filling procedure for 10 minutes. If the prescribed tyre pressure is still not obtained, the tyre is too badly damaged. Seek the assistance of a workshop.

Drain excess tyre pressure with the button on the air hose.

Do not run the compressor longer than 10 minutes.

  1. Detach the tyre repair kit. Remove sealant bottle from bracket. Screw the filler hose to the free connection of the sealant bottle. This prevents sealant from escaping. Stow tyre repair kit in load compartment.
  2. Remove any excess sealant using a cloth.
  3. Continue driving immediately so that sealant is evenly distributed in the tyre. Drive between 20 km/h and 60 km/h. After driving approx. 5 km but no more than 10 minutes, stop and check tyre pressure. Screw compressor air hose directly onto tyre valve when doing this. Fill tyre as described before. Drain excess tyre pressure with the button on the air hose.

    If tyre pressure hasn't decreased under 200 kPa (2 bar), set it to the correct value. Otherwise the vehicle must not be used. Seek assistance of a workshop.

    Repeat the checking procedure once more after driving further 10 km but no more than 10 minutes to check that there is no more loss of pressure.

    If the tyre pressure has fallen below 200 kPa (2 bar), the vehicle must not be used. Seek the assistance of a workshop.

  4. Stow away tyre repair kit in load compartment.

Note

The driving characteristics of the repaired tyre are severely affected, therefore have this tyre replaced.

If unusual noise is heard or the compressor becomes hot, turn compressor off for at least 30 min.

The built-in safety valve opens at a pressure of 700 kPa (7 bar). Note the expiry date of the kit. After this date its sealing capability is no longer guaranteed. Pay attention to storage information on sealant bottle.

Replace the used sealant bottle. Dispose of the bottle as prescribed by applicable laws.

The compressor and sealant can be used from approx. -30 °C.

    Tyre chains

    Tyre chains are only permitted on the front wheels. Always use fine mesh chains that add no more than 9 mm to the tyre tread and the inboard sides (including chain lock)...
