Park with stems at 12o'clock. Penetrating oil.
Thank you. How to get on the inside where its stuck? Figured spraying the front wont get it to where it needs to be.Park with stems at 12o'clock. Penetrating oil.
+1. Park with the stem pointing down, a good shot of penetrating oil and let them sit for a bit to allow the oil to do it's job.Mine point inward a little. So figured at 12 oclock they would point downward a little.
Will I need tpms as well
My son just had this problem, he tried penetrating oil, double plyers ext. short of ruining the stems and I lent him my Dremel tool with the diamond metal wheel. Told him to make a shallow cut or two like you said and use a thin screw driver to pry it open and that worked, just don't go too deep into the thread but a slim cut into the threads wouldn't matter. Never use metal valve caps that are a dissimilar metal they will corrode.Putting a tiny slice with a Dremel/cutoff wheel should relieve enough tension to get them off. Maybe two cuts. One on opposite sides. Not too deep. Wear safety glasses.
Had the same issue when I used a set of metal caps on a different vehicle. Pliers got three of them off but the fourth was stuck and required a dremel. Black plastic caps from now on...LOLNever use metal valve caps that are a dissimilar metal they will corrode.
Great to hear, but of course have to ask, how did they do it?Thanks all, tried all the suggestions, could not get them off. Brought to Town Fair and they fixed for $26. Appreciate all the help.
WD40 is not a good penetrating oil. I use corrosion X.Thanks all, tried wd40 with no luck. They are stuck good.
Will I need tpms as well if I cave and take it to a tire place?
