Hello. Welcome to JT Hughes Honda Shrewsbury. And today, we're going to be looking at the Honda HR-V. As you can see on the Honda HR-V, it doesn't come with a space-saver wheel. This is because it comes with a tyre inflation kit. To use the pump, attach the power socket to the vehicle's power outlet. Then attach the second connection to the valve on the tyre. Make sure your engine is then switched on. Once all connected, and the engine is running, switch the tyre inflation kit on, which is located just to the side. When you notice the recommended tyre pressure has been reached, you can then turn the unit off. Your recommended tyre pressure can be found inside the driver's door. At this point, the car engine can now be switched off.
If you over-inflate the tyre, simply loosen the valve, and you'll hear the air escape. When the correct amount of air is shown on the gauge, tighten the valve back up. If a tyre has a puncture, you can use a sealant as a temporary measure to then get you to your nearest garage. To use the sealant, repeat the steps taken previously. But before switching the pump on, the sealant bottle needs to be attached.
Once all the sealant has been emptied into the tyre, and the tyre has been inflated to the correct pressure, switch the unit and the engine off, and then place the valve cap back onto the tyre.
So if you've got any more questions regarding the Honda HR-V or the tyre inflation kit, please just give us a call here at Honda JT Hughes Shrewsbury or alternatively, just pop into the dealership, and we'll be very happy to help.
