Tyre pressure sensors Laguna '03

On Wednesday I had a tyre valve shear off whilst trying to inflate tyre. Call to local Renault dealer - 33 for valve 69.96 to programme it !!
Went to local tyre fitter, new valve (non sensor) fitted, tyres checked, tyre refitted and all for a total cost of 5 !!!

As an added bonus no flashing lights have come up via the system check, just says warning sensor faulty and then a display with 3 wheels. I can live with this to save 97.96 [

I would suggest to all who have done similar to check the conditions of your insurance as the sensor is regarded as a safety device and disabling or removing it may have an effect on any claim resulting from a tyre related accident. It might be a costly experience if you had a claim refused, so 97 may be small change in comparisson.

I am surprised no one has commented on this insurance issue!!! What do the moderators think? Is it not sensible to check ALL safety devices are functional?

Just had two front tyres fitted at my local independant tyre garage.
I had warned the garage that the car was fitted with these pesky little b****** sensors and they said they were happy to carry out the work.
Both tyres replaced, both sensors now reporting faults.
Garage very good about it, replaced NSF sensor and that worked OK for a day. OSF wasn't lit at this stage, just flashing up fault intermittently so garage did not replace.
Then OSF wheel light came on and stayed on, once again garage OK and said bring it back, it's our fault, we''ll replace it for you.
Back to the garage again, car put up on ramps, OSF sensor replaced, car down off ramps.........NSF now flashing !!!!!!!


Now been told it's got to be off to Renault for a complete system reset.

Thankfully the garage are footing the bill for the repair as from what i have read on here it could have been very expensive.

I think the moral of the story is....tell them in advance that your car is fitted with the sensors

Basically it shows that some firms are a bit backward in keeping abreast of modern innovations - this is one instance. In any case Scrader recommend replacing the sensor seals at each tyre change. I suppose as more tyre fitters get stung with having to replace broken sensors they may acually take time out to get educated, the job is not any more complicated than normal just when a ham fisted fitter applys more muscle than brain then the problems start. One should get a written undertaking that any damage is fixed FOC then they might take more care. This is from experience where it cost me an extra 50 at the last trye change with the fitter and his boss just shrugging shoulders saying the sensor was corroded anyway.
