    Just as I know that some ppl here don’t reading manual, today I saw one guy on busy road junction during change punctured tire – hopefully he had spare one.

    That is advice for all ppl with „repair kit“ instead or spare wheel (all Corsa owners), as I think is better to know what to do (read the manual at quiet home – and look what I will be doing) with repair kit, as than read manual on some busy road junction or on highway at night during snowfall...

        if the whole is bigger than a 5mm slash it will just flow out as fast as you put this in, found out the hard way when i hit a dropped drain cover and got a puncture in the middle of London at 2am

        Tyre weld is useless for big punctures/blowouts unless you run over a nail, idea is you leave the nail in and put the tyre weld in.

        Best thing to do is try and source a spare wheel sure somebody on here has done that, remember you will also need a wheel nut bar and a trolley jack!

          yes, it shut be like that, but just to check if to connect "A" to "B" than to "C" or if i have to first put C to B and just than A... and also when you open the all "repair thinks" - sometimes you are not sure if you have something OK or upside down... also that the compressor shuldt be running more that 15 minutes as i know - how you want to put the gunk flow to tyre with burned compressor ? or make some pressure with burned compressor ?

                Hang the front of the car over a cliff edge, that will get the wheels off the ground (not recommended)
