: Tire valve caps

Hi. Has anyone had trouble with thier tire pressure sensor valve cap. It seems that the cap becomes part of the stem.This may be due to to dissimilar metals being used.The Dealer said that they have seen this several times. Replacement of the tire pressure sensor is required to fix this,lots of DOLLARS if you are out of warranty. I sujest that you check your valve caps and replace the metal ones with plastic.Tom:bonkers:

I noticed that they went from metal to plastic from my 06 caddy to my 07 Caddy. I could not figure out why, other than cost, until this thread. Thanks.
