Repair puncture with harness — simple manual

Punctured tire — it’s fast and simple. Repaired too! “Driving” tells how to do it yourself.“Behind the wheel”

“Puncture a tire annoying: the damage is slight, and to go anymore, you first need to get to the nearest tire store,” — say in such a situation. It is actually possible to do without the help workshop. If damaged the front wheel, it is even not necessary to take off. Back still have, but it will be the most difficult stage in the process of repair.

To repair the wheel, you will need a soapy solution in spray bottle (the composition of shampoo and a nonfreezing liquid, which is not afraid of cold, it is better to prepare in advance and carry). Also will need: a file to clean the puncture site, the harness bar to install, and scissors.

Removed the wheel

Work to begin carry out on the removed wheel. Slowly rolled the wheel and put on him a soapy solution to find the damage. The appearance of bubbles in the place where there is intense release of air — a clear sign of a puncture. After discovering it, take the file and piggable hole in the tire. Smoothly paste it in there and twist clockwise. We are slightly expanding the hole to make it easier to insert the wiring, as its diameter is larger than the diameter of puncture.

We wrapped the file almost to the middle, and then another centimeter or two. Now Unscrew and remove the file. Take the package and wiring harness. They are usually sold with 4 pieces. The length of each about 200 mm. We will need a half of one harness. Cut. Remove the protective film and the backing paper that holds the harness. To worry that it will break, not worth it. Harness with special impregnation, so the glue use is optional.

Take a mandrel to install the harness and put it in the appropriate slot, so that the wiring appeared to be in the middle. Insert the mandrel into the injury site until about the middle. The ends of the harness remain visible. Holding it, gently pull out the locking pin from the wheel. Cut off the excess harness, leaving the tails with a length of 5-7 mm. On this repair wheel is finished. You need to wait 10 minutes, then you can put the wheel in place, inflate it and go on.

Without removing the wheels

If there is a puncture on the front wheel, then work can be done without removing it. However, have to raise in this place the car on a Jack previously transferred the gear lever is in neutral mode. In doing so, wrenched the front wheels to the side until it stops.

And is doing the same work: rotating the wheel, put on him a soapy solution. Upon detection of a puncture piggable place of damage of a file, paste the holder with a harness of the right size and pull it, then cut the ends of the harness. After 5-10 minutes we lower the car, remove the Jack and pumped the wheel. The problem is solved.

To repair the puncture yourself, without the help of a special workshop, really. Most importantly — take into account the characteristics of the tire and to properly assess the degree of damage.
