Removal
1.
Remove the tire.
(Refer to Tires/Wheels - "Tire")
2.
Remove the screw with torx driver (A).
   
When installing the bead brake, make sure that it does not come in contact with the TPMS sensor.
Be careful not to damage the TPMS sensor when installing the bead brake near the TPMS sensor.

3.
Remove the sensor body (A) from the valve (B) in the direction of the arrow.

4.
Use the valve mounting tool to pull out the valve until it is entirely out of the lower hole.

   
Cut the rubber at the bottom of valve with a knife.

5.
Apply lubricant to the surface of the valve, and then mount it through the valve hole of the wheel.
   
We recommend using regular soapy water as lubricant.

   
The TPMS sensor valve bottom is not properly sealed if it is not fully mounted on the wheel, as shown in the following figure:

Make sure that the valve body is pulled entirely through the hole.

6.
Apply soapy water or lubricant to the upper/lower bead section of the tire.
