How to repair a flat tire with the Tire Mobility Kit

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

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