Repairing flat tire (CrossCabriolet models)

Nissan Murano / Nissan Murano 2009-2019 Owner's Manual / In case of emergency / Flat tire / Repairing flat tire (CrossCabriolet models)

WARNING

After using Emergency Tire Sealant to repair a minor tire puncture, do not drive the vehicle at speeds faster than 50 MPH (80 km/h).
Immediately after using the Emergency Tire Sealant to repair a minor tire puncture, take your vehicle to a NISSAN dealer to inspect, and repair or replace the tire. The Emergency T i r e Sealant cannot permanently seal a punctured tire.

Continuing operation of the vehicle without a permanent tire repair can lead to a crash.
If you used the Emergency Tire Sealant to repair a minor tire puncture, your NISSAN dealer will also need to replace the TPMS sensor in addition to repairing or replacing the tire.
NISSAN recommends using only NISSAN Genuine Emergency Tire Sealant provided with your vehicle.

Other tire sealants may damage the valve stem seal which can cause the tire to lose air pressure.

This vehicle does not have a spare tire. The emergency tire puncture repair kit (Emergency Tire Sealant) is supplied with the vehicle instead of a spare tire. It can be used to temporarily repair minor tire punctures.

If possible, have the vehicle towed to a facility that can repair or replace the flat tire. Using the emergency tire puncture repair kit may cause a malfunction of the tire pressure sensor and cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate.

If you have a flat tire, follow the instructions below.

CAUTION

To avoid the emergency tire puncture kit being damaged during storage or use:

— Only use the emergency tire puncture repair kit on your vehicle.

Do not use it on other vehicles.
— Only use the kit to inflate the tires of your vehicle and to check the vehicle’s tire pressure.
— Only plug the compressor into a 12V DC car power point.
— Keep the kit free of water and dirt.
— Do not disassemble or modify the kit.
— Do not drop the kit or allow hard impacts to the kit.

Do not use the emergency tire puncture repair kit under the following conditions. Contact a NISSAN dealer or professional road assistance.

— when the sealant has passed its expiration date (shown on the label attached to the bottle)
— when the cut or the puncture is approximately 0.25 in (6 mm) or longer
— when the tire sidewall is damaged
— when the vehicle has been driven with extremely low tire pressure
— when the tire has come off the inside or the outside of the wheel.
— when the tire wheel is damaged
— when two or more tires are flat

Stopping the vehicle

1. Safely move the vehicle off the road and away from traffic.
2. Turn on the hazard warning flashers.
3. Park on a level surface and apply the parking brake.
4. Move the shift lever to the P (Park) position.
5. Turn off the engine.
6. Raise the hood to warn other traffic and to signal professional road assistance personnel that you need assistance.
7. Have all passengers get out of the vehicle and stand in a safe place, away from traffic and clear of the vehicle.

WARNING

Make sure the parking brake is securely applied and the automatic transmission into P (Park).

Never repair tires when the vehicle is on a slope, ice or slippery areas.

This is hazardous.
Never repair tires if oncoming traffic is close to your vehicle. Wait for professional road assistance.

Getting emergency tire puncture repair

Getting emergency tire puncture repair kit

Take out the emergency tire puncture repair kit located in the trunk. The repair kit consists of the following items:

1 Tire sealant bottle
2 Air compressor
3 Speed restriction sticker

Before using emergency tire puncture repair kit

If any foreign object (for example, a screw or nail) is embedded in the tire, do not remove it.
Check the expiration date of the sealant (shown on the label attached to the bottle).

Never use a sealant whose expiration date has passed.

Repairing tire

WARNING

Observe the following precautions when using the tire repair compound.

Swallowing the compound is dangerous.

Immediately drink as much water as possible and seek prompt medical assistance.
Rinse well with lots of water if the compound comes into contact with skin or eyes. If irritation persists, seek prompt medical attention.
Keep the repair compound out of the reach of children.
The emergency repair compound may cause a malfunction of the tire pressure sensors and cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate.

Have the tire pressure sensor replaced as soon as possible.

NOTE:

Do not remove any nails or screws that have penetrated the tire when performing repairs.

1. Open the lid of the air compressor and take

1. Open the lid of the air compressor and take out the speed restriction sticker, then put it in a location where the driver can see it while driving.

CAUTION

Do not put the speed restriction label on the steering wheel pad, the speedometer or the warning light locations.

2. Take the hose 1 and the power plug 2

2. Take the hose 1 and the power plug 2 out of the air compressor. Remove the cap of the bottle holder from the air compressor.

3. Remove the cap from the tire sealant bottle,

3. Remove the cap from the tire sealant bottle, and screw the bottle clockwise onto the bottle holder. (Leave the bottle seal intact.

Screwing the bottle onto the bottle holder will pierce the seal of the bottle.)
4. Remove the cap from the tire valve on the flat tire.

5. Remove the protective cap A of the hose

5. Remove the protective cap A of the hose and screw the hose securely onto the tire valve. Make sure that the pressure release valve  B is securely tightened. Make sure that the air compressor switch is in the OFF (power plug) position, and then insert its power plug into the power outlet in the vehicle.

6. Push the ignition switch to the “ACC”

6. Push the ignition switch to the “ACC” position. Then turn the compressor switch to the ON (−) position and inflate the tire up to the pressure that is specified on the tire and loading information label affixed to the driver’s side center pillar if possible, or to the minimum of 180 kPa (26 psi). Turn the air compressor off briefly in order to check the tire pressure with the pressure gauge.

If the tire is inflated to higher than the specified pressure, lower the tire pressure by releasing air with the pressure release valve.

NOTE:

The compressor tire pressure gauge may show a pressure reading of 87 psi (600 kPa) for about 30 seconds while inflating the tire. The pressure gauge is indicating the pressure inside the sealant can. When the sealant has been injected into the tire the pressure gauge will drop and indicate actual tire pressure.

WARNING

To avoid serious personal injury while using the emergency tire puncture repair kit:

— Securely tighten the compressor hose to the tire valve. Failure to do so can cause the sealant to spray into the air and get into your eyes or on the skin.

Do not stand directly beside the damaged tire while it is being inflated because of the risk of the rupture. If there are any cracks or bumps, turn the compressor off immediately.

If the tire pressure does not increase to 180 kPa (26 psi) within 10 minutes, the tire may be seriously damaged and the tire cannot be repaired with this tire repair kit. Contact a NISSAN dealer.

7. When the tire pressure is at the specified amount, turn the air compressor off. If the pressure cannot be inflated to the specified amount, the air compressor can be turned off at the minimum of 180 kPa (26 psi).

Remove the power plug from the power outlet and quickly remove the hose from the tire valve. Attach the protective cap and valve cap. Properly stow the emergency tire puncture repair kit in the trunk.

CAUTION

To avoid serious personal injury when stowing the emergency tire puncture repair kit:

Keep the sealant bottle screwed into the compressor. Failure to do so can cause the sealant to spray into the air and get into your eyes or on the skin.

8. Immediately drive the vehicle for 10 minutes or 3 km (2 miles) at a speed of 80 km/h (50 MPH) or less.
9. After driving, make sure that the air compressor switch is in the OFF position, then screw the hose securely onto the tire valve.

Check the tire pressure with the pressure gauge. The temporary repair is completed if the tire pressure does not drop.

Make sure the pressure is adjusted to the pressure that is specified on the tire and loading information label before driving.

10. If the tire pressure drops, repeat the steps from 5 to 9. If the pressure drops again or under 130 kPa (19 psi), the tire cannot be repaired with this tire repair kit. Contact a NISSAN dealer.

The sealant bottle and hose can not be reused to repair another punctured tire.

Contact a NISSAN dealer to purchase replacements.

After repairing tire

See a NISSAN dealer for tire repair/replacement as soon as possible.
