- Turn wheel on tire mounting device so that tire valve/tire pressure sensor -2- stands in front of mounting head -1-.

  Caution

Mounting head -1- must not be located in area -a- of tire valve/tire pressure sensor, otherwise the mounting head will damage the tire pressure sensor.

- Position mounting head -1- in vicinity of tire valve/tire pressure sensor so that tire iron can be put on approximately 30º next to tire valve/tire pressure sensor -2-.

- Install press holders -3- on disc wheel opposite the mounting head -1-.

- Now pry tire bead over mounting finger on mounting head using tire iron and remove tire iron again.

- Let the tire dismounting/mounting machine run clockwise until upper bead lies completely above the rim flange.
