Tools for repairing, instead of replacing, broken TPMS sensors.

Q: How can I easily repair aluminum clamp-in style TPMS sensor valve stems whose valve cores have frozen tight or have been damaged by galvanic corrosion?

A: Clamp-in style aluminum TPMS sensors are susceptible to corrosion and breakage. Until now, the only solution was to replace the broken sensor with a new one, a process that requires a lot of time, effort and expense.

Ken-Tool's patent pending reCore TPMS Sensor Saver System Repair Kit, No. 29980, provides an affordable way to repair broken sensors right on the vehicle without having to demount the tire. The complete job can be quickly and easily done in about 15 minutes, and there is no reprograming needed for the sensor.
