Default TPMS Prblems

Changed my tires the other day and met up with the tire pressure monitor system. What kind of crap are they using on those long nuts that thread to the stem. They cost 3 bucks at Dodge and they all crack while changing tires no matter how careful you are! Once cracked they produce a slow leak that takes days to figure out. Arrrgh!

Not sure what you're talking about. I've never had a problem breaking sensors and I've changed a lot of tires with them.

i did tires for 20 years, when you break the bead of the tire start 180 degrees from the valve both front and rear of tire,face up looking at the tire start with the iron just after the valve while pushing down on opposite side of the tire. i hope that this will help

^ what he said, I don't even come close to the sensors, Last time someone in the shop did they were at least $45 a piece. Most vehicle have them right behind the stem unless it's a Ford which then it is directly across on a band (stupid design) but the new Fords are underneath valve stems now.

your talking about the rebuild kit they have for the tpms, either they are overtorquing the hex nut, or they dont know what they are doing.
