Default Tyre valves

Well had 2 new front tyres today and was told i need to replace the valves all around the car as they are corroded, guy told me to get some rubber replacments as the originals are expensive, been looking on fleabay and i wondered if anyone could advise on which ones i would need and how i could go about doing it, assuming i can do it myself??

Found some here is the link but not sure of sizes and stuff??

I had a similar issue where a valve crumbled as I was inflating the tyre. Rather than replacing it with the pressure sensing valve I had on the wheel already, I got kwik-fit to replace with a standard rubber valve - which they did for free.

The sensor alarm went mental for about 5 mins, then informed me that the pressures were no longer being monitored and I've had no trouble since.

Of course I'm assuming that you have pressure sensing valves on your pug, but even so, I'm not sure I would undertake replacing a valve, standard or not...

Standard valves should be pretty simple. I have no mechanical skill whatsoever, which is why I wouldn't try it myself, but if you're confident enough to try yourself then go for it

Agreed. Go to Kwik-Fit. They did mine for me for free (though it was an emergency as my tyre was flat). They shouldn't charge you too much at all.

Good luck

If you want to keep the pressure sensor but don't want to pay peugeot to replace the whole thing, you can get just the valve stem replacement kits for 19.50 each. They sell on ebay here:

No reprograming needed as you keep the original sensor.

I was going to change for rubber ones but I always forget to check my tyre pressures so in the long run it saves some money by getting more life out of my tyres

There is a modified valve now not made of aluminium. It will not corode any more.

Hi peeps,

The missus has bought a 407 SW (and very nice it is too) and of course she's got corroded valves and a rubber replacement in one of them.

Now there is a variety of sources are saying that from next year TPMS functionality will be part of the MOT (thanks to the EUrocrats).

So if that's the case getting replacement sensors/valves would make sense.
For a decent indy with PP2000, they should be able to recode the ECU.
The only thing they would need to invest in is a TPMS trigger to get the sensor out of sleep mode, right?

Cheers,

Stan
