A new training video from Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket features tips on replacing valve stems. The video is for the company’s VDO Redi-Sensor tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and is part of the TPMS training series.
The video, entitled “Valve Stem Replacement,” shows technicians the proper procedure for maintaining and replacing damaged VDO clamp-in TPMS sensor valve stems.
Narrated by Continental product manager Steve Landis, the video provides a detailed explanation and demonstration of VDO clamp-in valve stem replacement procedures for the Continental TG1C sensor family.
The video gives technicians the key information needed to handle faulty, broken or defective TPMS sensors in a step-by-step guide.
In the training video, Landis identifies which scenarios require replacement of the entire sensor and which only require replacing a specific part.
The procedure is demonstrated using a VDO Redi-Sensor multi-application TPMS sensor. In addition to illustrating how to replace a damaged valve stem, it also shows the steps involved in disassembling, reassembling and installing a complete sensor.
