I will post up what he says on price and supply when he lets me know
Thanks for all your hard work!

Its good to get a result and Steve has bent over backwards to help on this. Plus as a bonus i did get 4 for free to try I just hope he can either supply them at reasonable money or put us on to somebody who can.

problems with the alloy stem - they snap randomly & leave you stranded (usually when filling the tyres at a garage). The valve caps can also corrode onto the stem making them impossible to remove without damage

I recently replaced a leaking TPMS valve after 5 yrs service and then discovered it only needed a new plastic seal. The original had probably been damaged during wheel replacement and/or not renewed as recommended by Schrader. I doubt whether wheel/tyre fitters use TPMS service kits. Following removal and inspection of the valve, I could see no evidence of corrosion that might have weakened the valve stem, so to break it off you would need to be fairly heavy handed. I did once have a valve cap corrosion problem when using metal caps, but since replacing them with the plastic variety I've had no further problems.

theres plenty of posts that show that youre lucky.....anyway, it only takes it happening once to completely muck up your day - especially for those of us without a spare. I've suffered the tyre cap seizing too....I'd rather not have a stem snap on the move (it has happened.

Anyhow I'm in newcastle UK does anyone have a part number for 2005 model? Is that 38 above the fitted price? Does it have to be done at a Chrysler dealer, or can my local kwik fit centre not just order them in and do the job thierselves? Sorry chaps panicking a bit as I think it best I change both rear sensors at same time

Any replies will be very helpful

Perhaps I have been lucky - as with swirl motors, alternators and numerous other foibles which have been reported. As I'm aware of the fragility of TPMS valves, I only ever use my own foot pump for inflation and I'm very careful when attaching or removing the nozzle or pressure gauge. One culprit that hasn't been mentioned is the high-pressure jet wash which has dispatched at least one valve belonging to one of the members of this forum. These water jets also have the capability of inflicting tyre damage, so are best avoided.

We fitted the other three today and they all worked ok they all started working at exactly the same place on the road as the one yesterday. Steve at Bartec says that he doesn't think this part no is stocked in the UK from any supplier at the moment but he's going to contact Schrader about price and availabilty. He also asked how many we might need so he may have a deal up his sleeve perhaps ??

When I got a TPMS replaced at dealer a few months ago, the guy said they are starting to order new rubber valves in to replace the metal ones to stop the corrosion?

Has anybody recieved one of these when ordering one?

Do these sound similar to the ones you have just put on your car?
