Valve seal on its own?


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

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.
