Thanks for the excellent write up and detailed photos. I used the exact same clamps and 2x4 blocks and your procedure worked perfectly. Was really glad to get the sensors out without taking the wheels to the dealer.

  • It's only really cold if you fall down in it.
    • C-14 farkles you almost cannot ride without.

Thanks for the kind words, and glad to hear it worked for you. We have been doing more and more of these on tech. day and it is a much faster process than pulling the wheel and tire off to get to the sensor. Plus I think a lot of people can do this job at home without a tire changer, a tire balancer or a lot of big tools to remove the axle and so forth.

Thanks for letting me know it was a benefit to you.

Is it possible to replace them, by t just breaking the bead on the rims or do you need to take the wheel off.  I want to replace both the front and rear.  Thanks for the help.

Yes, it takes two wood clamps (cabinet clamps) and four small blocks of wood and is actually quite easy to do. I did a few just this last Saturday. I can do both sensors, from pulling the Schrader valve to re-inflating the tires and of course soldering new batteries into both sensors in an hour and 5 minutes. The first time you do it it may take longer though.  ;)

First post edited to remove Photobucket links and install Imgur image links- these work, at least for now.
