When Should I Replace My TPMS Sensor?
TPMS sensors need to be replaced if the sensor assembly fails or is damaged. Some TPMS sensors are manufactured as one-piece units, with fixed components. If your one-piece TPMS unit appears to be damaged, the entire assembly will need to be replaced, even if the damage is only on the valve stem.
One-piece sensors are slowly being phased out and replaced by TPMS assemblies with removable/replaceable valve stems and service kits.
If your TPMS assembly appears to be damaged, please contact us at customer.service@TPMSDirect.com and we’ll help you determine the correct replacement TPMS sensor or TPMS components for your vehicle.

- Fitting new tires
