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 :thumb:

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.

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 :rolleyes:

Just reviving a thread rather than start a new one as questions I have relate to info in this thread.
I have just bought a 2008 407HDi wagon to replace my ageing 406HDi wagon and found it to be full of electronic bits which I am still trying to get my head around. One thing is the tyre pressure monitoring which is displaying a fault on the centre console.

I have a Lexia3 with PP2000/Diagbox and have determined that there is a fault with the RR sender. I do want to keep the monitoring system so want to replace the faulty unit. What I want to know is the following..

1. One of the links above is for sender units on ebay which are advertised as being suitable for Jags etc and are 433MHz. Are they ok for the 407? If so, can I replace only 1 or will I have to do all 4?

2. If I can replace only 1, do I need to determine the codes on the other 3 to load the new one, or will I have to remove the tyres to get the coded off the other 3?

3. Do I use PP2000 or Diagbox to do this and does anyone care to point me in the right direction as to where I find the relevant program within the above to do so and any hints as to how to use it correctly?

Sorry for all the q's, I am fine with sorting issues with my 406 with PP2000 but the 407 is a bit of a minefield as it has a mountain of control boxes which display with Diagbox..
