TPMS sensor leak - advice on removal

Recommended Posts

Hi guy’s 

I have what I thought was a slow puncture, but is actually leak between the TPMS valve and the wheel.  I have got a replacement seal kit for the valve, but the nut holding the TPMS valve in does not want to come off easily. Feedback I am getting is that it is fairly likely the valve will break.....

Anyone in this situation before - if they have any suggestions for removal without breaking the valve. I have applied WD40 to see will that loosen things up a bit

I have in the past used a centre punch and hammer at the correct angle to remove stubborn nuts but I haven’t tried on a Tpms as the hex is at the top of the valve and will more than likely break off.

to be honest a new valve or even all 4 aren’t that expensive you might have to get them coded to the car though.
