broken tyre pressure sensor
Washing the Jeep tonight, Using a Meguiars wheel brush to clean inside the rim and between the spokes all of a sudden rapid loss of air in tyre valve had snapped clean off at the end of the dust cap threads.
So the valve and neck have all gone somewhere down the footpath!!!
Anyone had a similar problem? Is this aweakness in the tyre valves??

Re: broken tyre pressure sensor
Yep, sure have! The end of mine corroded right off. Went to check the tire pressure, and the threaded portion of the stem fell right off. All that was left was the inner core!!! And, as luck would have it the spare was flat also!!:lol:

Anyway, my mechanic actually makes the stems, as they are integral with the tire pressure monitor sensors. $40 bucks and I was on my way.:thumbsup:
