Hi All,

I purchased a 08 plate Mondeo 10 days ago. Within 7 days had to replace a TPMS valve. Fitted Friday at an independent garage. Blow me did my regular tyre pressure check today when filling up with fuel. Snapped another. Why would Ford fit a Sensor thats made from such a brittle material. Does anyone know where I can get sensors from that are made to last as I'm afraid of checking the rest of my tyre pressures just in case I break another.

Why did i buy this car. Love the car hate the TPMS.

Thanks Phil

tts not just Ford that has probs with TPMS after about 5 years +- the batterys fail and give dodgy reading and they start toi corrode due to eloctrylitic action. just done a search for the company that I got replacement from for my laguna but they dont seem to do them any more but a phone call might get you somewhere http://www.tyre-equipment.co.uk/

Thanks for the website. I'm going to get it sorted today one way or another. Hate driving round on a bicycle wheel.
