Hi All
When changing tyres what do you normally do to the TPMS, valve outer and core. Obviously if just a normal valve you'd replace it all, do tyre fitters have the right parts to do anything ?
Thanks

Nominal life of the battery in the TPMS sensors is 5 years but logically that also depends on annual mileage - if you use two set of tyres for summer/winter the batteries will last longer.

If yours are original from 2013 might be prudent to expect to replace them - check with your tyre fitters first, don't assume they'll have the right ones in stock.

I changed my original tyres in 2018 and just left the sensors on. The tyre fitters were used to seeing them on modern cars and as the system was working OK, I crossed my fingers that he batteries would last. They are reported to have a nominal life of 5 years :rolleyes:

Almost 3 years on and they are still performing OK - not bad for 8 years of use. I am going to refurbish my Tarragona alloys later this year so I’ll be taking the opportunity to replace the TPS with new ones as I don’t think they will last another few years until I need to replace my tyres again :unsure:

Thanks for the thoughts guys.

The VW knowledge article of TPMS says the life of sensors is actually 10 years.

Rather than the sensors batteries I was actually thinking of the valve and valve housing/seals. eg. if I look at National Tyres they says they replace the core of TPMS. Don't know what the core is though.

The core is the middle bit, same as a conventional rubber tyre valve.
