Pressure valves leaking - again
Jul 27, 2019 (5 months ago)
Constant problems with pressure valves . Had 3 leaking & replaced in October 2018 . Vauxhall dealer also said the cleaned corrosion on alloy wheels . July 2019 & one of the valves is leaking again . Tyre place I took car to said I would need to get the alloys refurbished & then replace the valve in order to get better lifespan on the valves . I cant afford to be changing the whole valve & sensors every year - any advice / help appreciated.

Common fault I'm afraid nowadays not only on Vauxhalls . The ones I have seen needing replaced were 3yrs + before giving problems .A few seem to occur after tyres have been replaced whether it's the tyre fitters causing it is debatable or a contributing factor .
