LAS VEGAS (Nov. 3)—Siemens VDO has launched a line of aftermarket tire pressure monitoring system components.
Howard A. Laster, Siemens director of marketing and business development, said the new TPMS pieces include the sensor assembly and five service parts: a valve core, valve nut, valve cap, seal and seal washer.
The sensor only needs to be replaced if it fails or is damaged, Laster said. However, manufacturers recommend that all new service parts be replaced each time the tire is serviced.
The firm unveiled the line at the Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas.
