Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Vehicles with breakdown set, saloon

Depending on equipment level, vehicles are equipped with a breakdown set.
   
The breakdown set is located in the tool bag -3- on the right in the luggage compartment.
The breakdown set consists of a bottle of tyre sealant -1- and a compressor -2-.
The tyre sealant in the bottle has a limited shelf-life.
The bottle -1- therefore has an expiry date -arrow-.
Renew tyre sealant when the expiry date is reached (the tyre sealant must not be older than 4 years).
If the bottle has been opened, e.g. to repair a tyre, then it must also be renewed.
Observe regulations for disposal → Chapter.
