I'm feeling really pleased with myself!

I've just managed to remove a seized TPS from a Silverstone wheel without damaging the wheel or the valve. Mind you, the nut is completely bu***rd!

ATS were going to swap it when they changed a wheel for me (old one buckled), but they did warn me that it was highly unlikely to come out without shearing off. So when the monkey reached for the torque wrench to give a little extra persuasion to the stuck valve, I said to leave it for now and just put a normal valve in the new wheel.

So now all I have to do is get a new nut and get the valve put back in the new wheel. Cost of refitting a tyre again, but a lot cheaper than a new valve & coding etc by Renault!

So it can be done!!!

Ta Dah!

Good for you - the application of common sense as opposed to brute power prevails.:)
