Do make sure you know precisely what you're getting for that price!
The Tirefit system itself consists of 2 main components - the compressor box and the can of Tirefit gloop with its connecting hoses:
Inside the compressor box is the compressor, hose with integrated pressure gauge and power lead with *** socket plug. A power switch is also incorporated in the exterior of the compressor box. The compressor system may, of course, be used for routine tyre inflation without being connected to the can of gloop:
The boot (trunk) compartment is a very useful accessory:
At the front, there is a removable flap behind which both components of the system can be stowed without intruding upon the compartment space:
If you buy the excellent 'Roadsterbags' for the SLK:
the third bag which is supplied with the Roadsterbags fits neatly into the boot compartment and is ideal for holding the spare bulb kit, owner's manual, cats, small children etc:
The Tirefit is a very neat system and the boot compartment without 'space saver' tyre makes very efficient use of the available boot volume of the SLK.
the kit in nicks car is standard issue for a slk32 amg. the car has the spare and jack with tools deleted and the tirefit kit with an airpump and slime. imo its a nice place to store stuff but i could have really used a small spare when i blew a tire 350 miles from home. if the tire goes flat no issue but i blew my tire completly and waited 2 hrs for a rollback then had to buy the only tire in the area that was a match.
1. If the tyre pressure looks low, connect the compressor to the tyre and inflate as required.
2. If the tyre has a puncture, connect the compressor to the Tirefit can inlet and connect the Tirefit can outlet hose to the tyre, then switch on the compressor. The tyre will then be pressurised with the Tirefit sealant ('gloop' or 'slime') to effect a temporary puncture repair. With the tyre repaired in this way, max. speed must be less than 50 mph.
3. The plastic boot box is just an alternative for the other design which holds the conventional spare, jack and pump. In the photo posted by lkevinv321, there does seem to be a front flap (I could be mistaken though), but I don't know how you get hold of the moulded part which takes the compressor box and gloop can - is it supplied with the plastic bin? Otherwise they'll have to be stowed in the boot bin, I guess.
When I bought my SLK32, it came with an extra pump and gloop can - because whoever prepared it at the dealership hadn't opened the flap in the boot compartment to check whether there was a Tirefit already fitted!
Part No. for the air compressor is A 000 583 07 02 and for the 450 ml gloop can is A 000 583 12 12.
The part no. for the moulded part which fits in front of the boot box flap to hold the compressor box and gloop can is 170 684 15 37.
