Range Rover Evoque: Checking the tyre pressure after a repair

you When driving the vehicle, if you experience vibrations, abnormal steering, or noises, reduce speed immediately. Drive with extreme caution and reduced speed to the first safe place to stop the vehicle. Visually examine the tyre, and check its pressure. If there are any signs of damage or deformity to the tyre, or the tyre pressure is below 1.3 bar (19 lbf/in²), do not continue driving.
Consult a tyre repair centre, or your Dealer/Authorised Repairer for advice concerning the replacement of a tyre after using a tyre repair kit.

1. Drive the vehicle for 3 km (2 miles) then stop in a safe place. Carry out a visual examination of the tyre’s condition.

2. Remove the protective cap from the inflation hose.

3. Screw the inflation hose connector firmly onto the tyre valve.

4. Read the tyre pressure from the gauge.

5. If the pressure of the sealant filled tyre is above 1.3 bar (19 lbf/in²) adjust the pressure to the correct value.

6. Ensure that the compressor switch is in the off position (O), and insert the power cable connector into an auxiliary power socket.

7. If the vehicle is in a well ventilated area, start the engine.

8. Switch on the compressor (I), and inflate the tyre to the correct pressure.

9. To check the tyre pressure turn off the compressor then read the pressure from the gauge.

10. When the compressor is off, if the tyre pressure is too high, release the required amount of pressure using the pressure relief valve.

11. Once the tyre is inflated to the correct pressure, switch off the compressor and remove the power plug from the auxiliary socket.

12. Unscrew the inflation hose connector from the tyre valve, replace the tyre valve cap and the inflation hose connector protective cap.

13. Do not remove the sealant bottle from the receiver.

14. Ensure that the tyre repair kit (including the bottle, and receiver caps) are placed securely in the vehicle.

15. Drive to the nearest tyre repair centre, or Land Rover Dealer/Authorised Repairer, for a replacement tyre to be fitted. Ensure that you make the repair centre aware that the tyre repair kit has been used before the tyre is removed.

16. Both the tyre inflation hose, and the sealant bottle should be replaced once a new tyre has been fitted.

Only sealant bottles which are

Only sealant bottles which are completely empty should be disposed of with normal household waste.

Sealant bottles which contain some sealant, and the tyre inflation hose, should be disposed of by a tyre specialist, or your Land Rover Dealer/Authorised Repairer, in compliance with local waste disposal regulations.
