Since 2014, sensors for the tyre pressure monitoring system built into new wheel rims are a European standard. This system gives information promptly about deviations from the optimal value, thus ensuring the best possible vehicle braking...
Various tools are required to install/remove this sensor easily, which can vary depending on the type of sensor. The TPMS set 0499.2011 easily covers this wide range of options. The torque wrench for the valve is set at 0.4 Nm. The tool for sensor mounting can be adjusted from 1 to 9 Nm and is thus adjustable according to the specifications of the sensor manufacturer. Torx® inserts, long nuts, a tool for seals, a T-handle and ring spanners complete this set.
Too low or too high tire pressure can affect the driving characteristics and can cause unstable driving behavior. Constant monitoring by a TPMS has the following advantages:
Essentially, from the 1st November 2014: all new M1/M1G class vehicles (which includes passenger cars, SUVs and RVs) are required by the EU Regulation (No 661/2009.) to be equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system. Since November 1, 2012 all new types of vehicles within this class have had to be equipped with a TPMS before leaving the factory.
In order to adjust the correct torque value exactly, the torque wrench is equipped with a "Positive-Lock". This feature prevents the setting in use from shifting unnoticed and ensures accurate work within a range of 1 to 9 Nm.
Simply push the "Positive-Lock" catch down and set the torque value by turning the handle left and right. The full valuesare displayed on the main scale, you can read tenths from the vernier scale on the handle. Release the lock. Done. It’s that simple.
* The application steps shown are only illustrative. The indications given are in no way liable. Always read the instructions of the respective TPMS manufacturer.
The torque-bolting tools are calibration-certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 6789. The torque screwdrivers and the calibration certificate are marked with identical serial numbers.
According to DIN EN ISO 6789, the minimum general requirement for the calibration interval is one year or 5000 load cycles - whichever comes first. This identification is complemented by additional proprietary requirements.
