Note: This procedure only applies to vehicles with the Baolong TPMS system (vehicles built before approximately September 10, 2014).

Set thresholds

  1. In the Service Manual, refer to General Information > Technical Data > Tire pressures. Note the appropriate hard and soft TPMS thresholds, depending on suspension type, tire size, and region.
  2. Sit in the driver's seat to turn on the accessory rail.
  3. Pull down the center storage tray or center cover to detach the front clips (x2). Note: The storage tray or center cover does not need to be completely removed.
