ALLENTOWN, Pa. Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket has released a new video in its professional 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 auto 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 VDO REDI-Sensor sensor.
VDO REDI-Sensor is a multi-application TPMS sensor that covers more than 85 percent of all vehicles in North America with only three sensor SKUs, and replaces more than 140 OE sensors, the company says. REDI-Sensor is designed to follow standard OE vehicle relearn procedures, and works with all major TPMS scan tools, including those from ATEQ, Bartec, OTC / SPX, K-Tool (T.I.P.S.) and Snap-on.
The “Valve Stem Replacement” video, along with the rest of the REDI-Sensor TPMS Training videos, can be seen on YouTube.
