Reusing TPMS

Post by SteveM » Thu Apr 12, 2018 8:56 pm

Apologies if this had been asked before...

I’ve bought a new 436m (thumbs up to the Cotswold guys) to replace the month old original which I managed to scrape 2/3rds of last weekend, and I’m planning to fit it this weekend.

Can I reuse the original TPMS? I can remember reading somewhere that not all are reusable.

Yup, they'll be fine. Absolutely worst case, you might need a cheap seal kit.

Cheers, Marco.

I’m letting the good ‘ol boys at F1 loose on it, they know I’m a fussy bugger and always take care.

Are they likely to have a seal kit? The original rim hasn’t even clocked 2k yet, is it likely to need one?

I severely doubt they'll stock BMW OEM seal kits, but wonders never cease. If they damage the old seal it won't hold pressure, so you'll soon know.....

Should be fine, I wouldn't be too concerned.
