1Changing a Flat Tyre*  
If a tyre goes flat while driving, grasp the steering wheel firmly, and brake gradually  
to reduce speed. Then, stop in a safe place. Replace the flat tyre with a compact  
spare tyre. Go to a dealer as soon as possible to have the full-size tyre repaired or  
replaced.  
Follow compact spare precautions:  
Periodically check the tyre pressure of the compact  
spare*. It should be set to the specified pressure.  
Specified Pressure: 420 kPa (4.2 bar, 60 psi)  
1. Park the vehicle on firm, level, and non-slippery surface and apply the parking  
brake.  
When driving with the compact spare tyre, keep the  
vehicle speed under 80 km/h (50 mph). Replace with  
a full-size tyre as soon as possible.  
Automatic transmission models  
The compact spare tyre and wheel in your vehicle are  
specifically for this model. Do not use them with  
another vehicle. Do not use another type of compact  
spare tyre or wheel with your vehicle.  
2. Change the gear position to (P  
.
Manual transmission models  
2. Move the shift lever to (R  
.
Do not mount tyre chains on a compact spare tyre.  
If a chain-mounted front tyre goes flat, remove one of  
the full-size rear tyres and replace it with the compact  
spare tyre. Remove the flat front tyre and replace it  
with the full-size tyre that was removed from the rear.  
Mount the tyre chains on the front tyre.  
All models  
3. Turn on the hazard warning lights and turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0*1  
.
A compact spare tyre gives a harsher ride and less  
traction on some road surfaces. Use greater caution  
while driving.  
Do not use more than one compact spare tyre at the  
same time.  
The compact spare tyre is smaller than the regular  
tyre. Your vehicle’s ground clearance reduces when  
the compact spare tyre is installed. Driving over road  
debris or bumps could possibly damage the  
underside of your vehicle.  
*1: Models with the keyless access system have an ENGINE START/STOP button instead of an  
ignition switch.  
* Not available on all models

driving. After driving for a few kilometres (miles), the indicator will start blinking for  
a short time and then stay on, but this is normal.

If the tyre has a large cut or is otherwise severely damaged, you will need to have  
the vehicle towed. If the tyre only has a small puncture, from a nail for instance, you  
can use the temporary tyre repair kit so that you can drive to the nearest service  
station for a more permanent repair.  
The kit should not be used in the following situations.  
Instead, contact a dealer or roadside assistant to have  
the vehicle towed.  
The tyre sealant has expired.  
More than one tyre is punctured.  
The puncture or cut is larger than 4 mm (3/16 inch).  
The tyre side wall is damaged or the puncture is  
outside the contact area.  
If a tyre goes flat while driving, grasp the steering wheel firmly, and brake gradually  
to reduce speed. Then stop in a safe place.  
1. Park the vehicle on firm, level, and non-slippery surface and apply the parking  
brake.
