There are two type of valves, one is like a car valve and you can press the tiny button in the centre. The other style of valve you need to unscrew the small knob at the end of the valve which then lets you push it in to deflate the tyre.You also have to unscrew this knob to blow it up. Most tubes will let air out over time even if they are not punctured. If its not completely flat it just might need pumping up

How do you fix a flat tire


there are a lot of quick fixes for tyres but generally anything sprayed into the tyre will not allow a proper repair
Replace the tyre with the spare and have a tyre shop carry out the repair. The case of the tyre has to drilled out to get the puncture repair plug in place and the rubber inside the case has to be perfectly clean so that the plug flap will adhere to the rubber for a good seal
anything you spry in will prevent this from happening
You may have to replace the tyre if you have been running on a flat tyre as the condition destroys the inner side walls.

My 2008 ultima tires will leak air to the extent they are almost completely flat. It started with the passenger side rear almost completely flat. I would fill with air and it will last for 2-5 days. Now...


Your tyres need checking for slow punctures or leaking valves. If you want to do it yourself. You'll need a tub or pool big enough for a complete wheel. Fill it with water, then, remove one wheel at a time and put it in the tub/pool. look for bubbles, the puncture is where the bubble come from.

Of course you could go to a tyre shop and get them to check, once done and you know your tyres are in good order, the only other thought is that it may be someone having fun at your expense, you could get some lockable valve caps.

My quinny rear tyre is flat tried to inflate the tyre but still does not work what should i look out for


you have a few choices
but if you want a long term fix you are better off getting a new inner tube as once a puncture occurs with the quinny wheels they will carry on doing it but theey are cheap enough to replace via ebay for about £6

if you dont want to replace you will need to remove the rubber wheel from the hub as you would a bike tyre then remove the inner tube
pump the tyre up put in water so you can find the hole then fix with a puncture repair kit

if you want to carry on using you can fill the tyres with tyre weld as you would a car they dont puncture and makes the quinny a smother ride

and if all else fails you can buy a used or new pair of wheels from ebay between £15 and £30
hope this helps x

How do you fix a flat tyre on a maxi cosi mura?


If you have a puncture and there is only one hole, you can get a puncture repair kit for bikes from somewhere like Halfords and repair the inner tube.
I found the inner tube on one of our tyres was faulty and there were about 20 small holes around the seam. I got a bit fed up with arguing whether or not the guarantee should cover this and so we ended up buying a new inner tube from our local tyre place http://www.etbtyres.co.uk/ it was only £5.

Run flat tyre warning light is on i have checked tyre pressure


This will only come on when a tyre has dropped in pressure (not spare). It work on the principle that a tyre with less air has a smaller rolling circumference and therefore a different wheel speed. This is then monitored against other signals from other wheels and determined that a loss in pressure has occured.

If all tyre pressures seem ok, there could be a chance of a small unoticeable leak and would require a bath test. This is when the tyre is dipped in water and bubbles would appear where the puncture is.

Ultimately the system may just need to be reset, or has incorrectly been reset from a tyre change. For this you just press and hold the TPC button (located on the centre console above the gearstick - looks like a flat tyre with an exclamation) turn on the ignition to position 2 and the light will come on re then yellow,go out, come back on yellow. When it comes back on yellow it re-initializing the system. You can let go of the button and after 20 odd seconds the light will go out for the final time, completing the reset.

If the light continues to come on after the reset then you definitely have a puncture somewhere!

Hope this helps!

Flat tyre


We've just had same problem with a drawing pin. The tyres have an inner tube (like a bicycle tyre) which you can fix with a puncture repair kit- just find your local bicycle shop or somewhere like Halfords for this. Good luck!

Front tyre is flat..


I've had two flats on the back tyre on my jane power twin - the first time myself and my husband bought a tyre puncture kit and fixed it. The second time we tried the same thing but the puncture was in such an awkward position that the patch wouldn't adhere to the tyre so I needed a replacement. I went to my nearest Mothercare shop which sells the power twin and asked them to order me a new tyre. It took a week but the part came it and it wasn't just a tyre it was a whole back wheel. They charged me 10 euros (7 Stg approx). Hope this helps.
