    Having just bought my Copen, I thought I'd check out the pump & tyre weld. Checking over the tyre weld bottle, I noticed it had a experation date. It had run out on 03/2008!!!
    Phoned Daihatsu & almost fell off my chair! £52.03 + VAT
    I'll be off to Halfords then for a can of Holts 400ml tyre weld.

    Oh dear thats not good news Adam. I wonder what happens if you use it after the use by date?

    Has anybody had any experience of using either the supplied gunk or an aerosol?
    How well do they work?
    I guess the wheel and tyre has to be cleaned after use.

    I've been reading up on the Holts Tyre-Weld.
    This product works well, it repairs the leak & inflates the tyre in one go.
    Some people have said that the tyre dosen't fully inflate, but is enough to get you to a tyre garage. As we all have compressors in our boots we can top the pressure up afterwards.

    It says on the can, the tyre can be repaired afterwards. A lot of people who have used the stuff. Find out at the tyre garage that they are not prepared to clean out the wheel & repair it.
    This could be just down to them wanting to sell you a new tyre though!

    Emergancy tyre repair

    I bought a motorcycle tubeless tyre puncture repair kit for around £12. If the damage is small it should get you to a tyre repair garage. If damage is large then it is the rescue people as the tyre weld will not do the job. My local tyre owner who I buy tyres from will not repair any tyre that has this foam in it.
    This is a get you home system and immediate proper repairs must be made at the nearest repair garage. If you are a member in a rescue breakdown service get them to take you and the car home. Or to a tyre repair garage. Foam the tyre then you will lose it even if it is repairable.
