Default Tyre Valve broke

Hi all

I went to fill air into tyres yesterday as i got a warning and managed to break one of the tyre valves

Is this just take to local tyre shop to replace valve or is this a specialists job with the tyre pressure monitor ???

thanks Nick

When I got my car, two of the tyre stems (the sensor is attached to the stem and located inside the wheel) had been replaced with normal rubber ones.
Enquiring about the cost to get sensors re-fitted got a few giggles and suggestions of re-mortgages.
I got the other two stems removed and replaced with normal rubber ones when I got the tyres replaced; then disabled the monitoring system.
Best move I've made.
No more corroded solid inflexible valve stems; and more importantly, no more messages about tyre pressure monitoring inactive etc.
Back to the good old fashioned method of actually manually checking the tyre pressures

I replaced the valves and de-activated the tps on my Xline 407, two snapped on a garage forecourt on the way to Scotland for a holiday.
Needless to say, the car was in bad books that day.

It's about £50 on eBay for a set of four sensors.

Don't bother with replacement stems because the sensors break when trying to remove the old stems.

Any tyre place can take out the old sensors and put in either regular rubber stems or your new sensors.

If you do put in new sensors then they'll need coding to the car. This can be done in PP2k. You need the code from each sensor (take pictures of them and make sure you know which corner each went into) (and you might have to convert the codes from hex to decimal or vice versa -- I can't remember).

I have rubber stems in and TPMS turned off. On balance, the confidence that the air will stay in the tyres is a small price to pay for the absence of TPMS. The TPMS stems really are frighteningly flimsy.

Do not buy that kit! This is what happens when you try to take out the old stems and put the new ones in.

Couldn't help but think the same RWB.
The post directly after you said "Don't bother with replacement stems because the sensors break when trying to remove the old stems"... is a link for replacement stems
