TPMS Valve Stem

Question for those of you more experienced with the TPMS than myself. I have a stem that's leaking. Is it possible to replace just the stem on an 08 KK? I've can't find a definite answer so I'm hoping someone here has hands on experience. Thanks in advance!

Will this work? Amazon says it fits but who knows...

If you just need the valve core, go to a auto parts store. It will be cheaper than buying that kit.

No you can not just replace the stem,you will need the whole TPMS sensor.


If you just replace the valve core make sure it is the correct TPMS valve core as they are nickel coated since there antenna for the sensor.

Mine says to replace the valve and screw with every tire change. The sensor body is removable from the stem. The question would be if the stem is available seperatately

Why yes, yes they are. But, you have to have one that fits your sensor. Most places that do tire work will have a repair kit with some assorted stems and parts. The guy down the street from me had to replace one of my stems when his apprentice broke it removing one of my tires.

Thanks guys I'm hoping to get it looked at tomorrow. I purchased a Dorman replacement sensor just in case, Figured I can always return it.

If the sensor is replaced, how do I get the system to recognize the new sensor?

To bad those style sensors are for '10+ KK's.The '08-'09's still use the alloy stem TPMS sensors.
