Tyre pressure monitoring system valve servicing

If your vehicle has a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, it’s important to service your tyre valve every time your tyres are changed.

Our tyre pressure monitoring service explained

What is TPMS

A tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is to warn you when at least one of your tyres is under- inflated. A sensor valve fitted to each wheel alerts low tyre pressures, changes in temperature and imbalances to the driver via a dashboard symbol. This symbol resembles a horseshoe with an exclamation mark in the centre. This allows any problems to be addressed straight away, which could help prevent unsafe driving conditions.

How do I know if I need this service?

If your vehicle has a TPMS, it’s important to service your tyre valve every time your tyres are changed to ensure the entire TPMS lasts its full expected lifetime of around seven years. Some car manufacturers have provided TPMS for a long time, but cars made after 2014 have a TPMS integrated as a standard feature, in compliance with EU safety regulations. Did you know… If your TPMS sensor is faulty and your tyre pressure light is showing, it can result in an MOT test failure.

What are the benefits of using our tyre valve servicing?

  • Money savings – Perishing rubber seals can cause pressure loss, resulting in less effective fuel performance, replacing them can improve fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions
  • Vehicle performance – Road handling and safety is improved
  • Tyre wear – Correct tyre pressures are maintained, reducing premature wear

What is included in the service?

There are two types of TPMS valve, a ‘snap in’ or a ‘clamp in’. Our replacement service provides new hardware from one of these two kits, depending on the make, model and year of your vehicle.   For ‘snap in’ valve stems, we replace:  

  • Locking Nut
  • Locating Washer
  • Valve Stem
  • Valve Core
  • Valve Cap

  For ‘clamp in’ valve stems, we replace:  

  • Securing screw
