Damn. I paid much more than that for 1. Got the new one with the rubber stem. But I may change out the remaining two sensors in the future, so I will keep you in mind.

See, now the caps aren't really the issue. Its the nut that is down lower towards the base of the stem. The actual valve stem is still intact, but its the nut that hold it in place that broke off.

I mean, I was able to pull the stem back out and the air pressure still inside held in place and the valve stem cap was still on.


And this is obviously a known issue. Which is why wkjeep.com lists the MOPAR Part A is superseded by Part B for ALL the different TPMS Sensors.

IF the ferral nut broke off just put a new one on,you can buy rebuild kits since those nuts are a one time use item.


As far as part a supersedes part b mostly means they switch suppliers is all.
