Mercedes Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hopefully i can help..
Some of these will be equipped with "run flat tyres" this means you can still drive on the defective tyre if a puncture has occurred as the run flat tyres have stiffen tyre walls to cope with that..and you can still drive the car at reduced speed to a tyre centre who should be able to acquire the tyre if applicable as repairing these "puncture wise" aren't usually done- cars without run flat tyres should have an emergency tyre sealant kit within the boot - this inc the electric pump which is powered by your cigarette lighter socket and sealant bottle which runs in tandem with the electric pump to pump the sealant in aswell as pump the tyre up - once up then you need to drive the car forward and then back to allow the sealant to spread inside the tyre and hopefully seal the leak..obviously this wont work if the tyre has blow out or a large rupture in which having a note or phone number of tyre centre such as kwik fit or similar will have mobile units that can come out to assist..these cars wont generally come with jacks nor tyre levers if they have either of the above unless you have a space saver tyre - of course you can check within the stowage well under the boot floor and see if you have tyre sealant kit if not then you will likely have run flats..you maybe able to know this by "MOExtended" marking which appears on the tyre wall..maybe have look and see if that's on the tyre - if so then you have run flat tyres..I do hope this helps..if you need to ask anything else or included anything then just continue..
