Post by Andrewh » Mon Apr 19, 2021 9:15 am

Good morning, can i ask for some advice ? i am going to get my 2 front tyres changed, is there anything i should know about the fitting ? my qashqai is the first car i have owned with TPMS, is it just a case of old tyre off, new one on with new valve ?
Many Thanks

I didn't have any problems apart from tyre pressures afterwards - I had to go for a short drive to get the system to recalibrate itself.

Nothing much to worry about, the garage will sort it all but you MUST check pressures after as most couldn't care less how much air they put back in.

yer the Garage will move the sensor over to the new tyre the only thing you need to check is the PSI and tell them as normally they will stick what they think they want it should say the tyre pressures on the driver side door

Andrew, here is a Tip ! - Dave 😉

Changing tyres with tyre pressure sensors : In some cases, it is advisable to have the tyre swap done professionally in a garage. For example, if your car has a direct Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). In this case, sensitive sensors are built into your tyres which measure the actual air pressure and transmit the values directly to the control unit. If the air pressure is too low, the system will tell you that the pressure needs adjusting. If you have a direct TPMS on board, then you should only have your tyres changed by a professional. They will check the sensors in the tyres and ensure that the wheels are changed correctly.

If you drive with an indirect tyre pressure monitoring system – that is, without sensors – then you can change tyres with a TPMS system yourself. In this case, you only have to abide by the instructions given in the operating manual. You can change your tyres by yourself without any problems if you follow our instructions.

However, because tyres cannot be balanced in a home garage, it is a good idea to have a professional do this. In addition, you should note whether your tyres are directional or asymmetric, because this affects how they must be fitted. When in doubt, it is best to get advice from a professional garage.

I had new tyres installed on my Juke and QQ (both with TPMS).
Works done by Black Circles.
Took care of the TPMS system and put the correct amount of air in the tyres.

Incidentally, at the time, good prices too
