TPMS Sensor and Service Kit Replacement

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.

When Should I Replace My TPMS Service Kit?

The TPMS service kit usually contains the following components: valve core, valve nut, seal, seal washer, and valve cap. The service kit needs to be replaced every time a tire is serviced.

  • Fitting new tires
  • Puncture repairs
  • Changing rims
  • Electronic failure
  • Damage during tire service
  • Damage by road hazards
  • Valve core or nut seizure
