Valve seal on its own? - Ride/Handling/Suspension/Brakes/Wheels/Tyres - The Lotus Forums Jump to content


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I haven't driven my car properly for a while due to weather.

Noticed what a thought was a slow puncture as part of my usual weekly checks. Had a spare tyre so went and got that fitted to find out its the rubber seal on the valve that has gone and it's leaking air.

I have the 19" forged wheels with TPMS metal valves, speaking to (and ordering the nuts by mistake initially) they only supply the seals with the valve and TPMS module for £40.

Any one know where I can get a valve seal without the valve and the module?

Thanks

Good find if that part number is correct this should also be the ones, much cheaper and 10 of them.

They are the ones - I have quite a few spare now as it was only £12 or so for the 10 sets delivered. If you want some let me know via PM and for a small contribution I will happily sell the 6 spare ones as the kits on eBay are day light robbery!

when mine was leaking it just needed 1/4 of a turn to tighten it - no seal required. Worth a try before trying to get bits replaced.

get some water with a tiny bit of washing up liquid in it and poor it on the valve, if you see lots of small bubbles its still leaking

Thanks for that. Wasn't the valve. Had a nail on the the inside near the edge. Not repairable. Grrr.
