Apologies if this has already been posted. These sensors are driving me mad. N/side rear tyre is showing as having a slow puncture (the indicator is flashing.) Have taken tyre off and is no puncture. Ordered and replaced sensor and valve but tyre is still went down. Upon contacting Renault, my independent was told it was to do with corrosion on the alloy wheel itself which then causes the valve ( or something like that, I don't quite understand) to have a hairline fracture. Been told the only way to correct this permanently is to buy a new wheel? They also suggested as a temporary measure to use a sealant which should hold for about 6 months. Independent tried that and lasted 2 days. What the ***k ??

Laguna for sale. One frustrated owner!!
