Range Rover Evoque: Repair procedure

to Check the tyre sidewall prior to inflation. If there are any cracks, bumps or similar damage, do not attempt to inflate the tyre. Do not stand directly beside the tyre while the compressor is pumping. Watch the tyre sidewall: If any cracks, bumps or similar damage appear, turn off the compressor and let the air out by means of the pressure relief valve. Do not continue to use the tyre.

1. Open the tyre repair kit and peel off the maximum speed label. Attach the label to the facia in the driver's field of view. Take care not to obstruct any of the instruments or warning lights.

2. Uncoil the compressor power cable and the inflation hose.

3. Unscrew the orange cap from the sealant bottle receiver, and the sealant bottle cap.

4. Screw the sealant bottle into the receiver (clockwise) until tight.

- Screwing the bottle onto the receiver will pierce the bottle's seal.

5. Remove the valve cap from the damaged tyre.

6. Remove the protective cap from the inflation hose, and connect the inflation hose to the tyre valve. Ensure that the hose is screwed on firmly.

7. Ensure that the compressor switch is in the off (O) position.

8. Insert the power cable connector into an auxiliary power socket. See 70, AUXILIARY POWER SOCKETS.

9. Unless the vehicle is in an enclosed area, start the engine.

10. Set the compressor switch to the on (l) position.

11. Inflate the tyre to a minimum of 1.8 bar (26 lbf/in²) and a maximum of 3.5 bar (51 lbf/in²).

- When pumping the sealant through the tyre valve, the pressure may rise up to 6 bar (87 lbf/in²). The pressure will drop again after approximately 30 seconds.

12. During the inflation, switch the compressor off briefly to check the tyre pressure using the gauge mounted on the compressor.

- It should not take longer than seven minutes to inflate the tyre. If after seven minutes the tyre has not reached the minimum pressure, the tyre should not be used.

13. Once the tyre has been inflated, switch off the compressor. If desired, the engine may be turned off after the compressor has been turned off.

14. Remove the power connector from the auxiliary power socket.

15. Remove the inflation hose from the tyre valve by unscrewing it as quickly as possible (anticlockwise).

16. Replace the inflation hose protective cap, and the tyre valve cap.

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

18. Ensure that the tyre repair kit (including the bottle, and receiver caps) are placed securely in the vehicle. You will need to use the kit to check the tyre pressure after 3 km (2 miles) so ensure they are easily accessible.

19. Immediately drive the vehicle for 3 km (2 miles) to allow the sealant to coat the inner surface of the tyre and form a seal at the puncture.
