How To Replace The Select Sensor Valve

STEELMAN® Select Sensors are designed to work with either a rubber snap-in valve stem or a metal clamp-in valve stem (aluminum and chrome are available). This enables the installer to match the valve stem type on the TPMS Equipped vehicle.

- The 97353 snap-in valve stem is connected to the sensor using a 7mm nut.
- The 97354 aluminum clamp-in valve stem and 97336 chrome clamp-in valve stem is connected to the sensor using a T10 torque screw.

To remove or install a valve from the STEELMAN® Select Sensor use the 96198 Torque Tool. The torque tool is preset to 12-in-lbs. (1.4 Nm).

  • When removing or installing a valve stem - grip the valve stem and body. Use the 96198 Torque Tool with the T10 hex bit or 7mm socket.
  • When installing a new valve, make sure the valve is properly seated in this sensor body. Tighten the T10 screw or 7mm lock nut until you hear a "click" indicating the proper torque has been achieved.
