How to repair a flat tyre with the Tyre Mobility Kit

If a tyre punctures while driving, the TPMS warning light on the instrument panel will turn on. In the event of a flat tyre, it is important to move the car to a safe location before attempting to make any repairs. The Tyre Mobility Kit located under the boot floor can be used as a temporary fix for the flat tyre.

  • After using the mobility kit to seal a tyre, replace the tyre at the nearest Kia Service Centre within 200 km. During this time, it is advisable to maintain a speed of less than 80 km/h.
  • The tyre mobility kit is only designed to seal the tread part where the tyre contacts the road surface.
  • Do not use the Tyre Mobility Kit to repair large punctures or damage to the tyre sidewalls.
