Transmitter



Removal & Installation
  1. Remove wheel and tire.
  2.  
  3. Deflate tire. Unscrew transmitter retaining nut and allow transmitter to fall into tire.
  4.  
  5. Gently bounce tire so that transmitter falls to bottom of tire. Place wheel and tire assembly on tire changing machine and break both tire beads. Ensure that the transmitter remains at the bottom of the tire while breaking the bead.
  6.  
  7. Turn tire so that valve hole is at bottom, and gently bounce the tire to ensure transmitter is near valve hole. Carefully lift tire onto turntable and position valve hole (and transmitter) 270 degrees from mounting/dismounting head.
  8.  
  9. Lubricate tire well, and remove top side of tire. Reach inside the tire and remove the transmitter.
  10.  
  11. Remove the second side of the tire as normal.
  12.  

To install:

  1. Place first side of tire onto rim.
  2.  
  3. Apply suitable silicone lubricant to new transmitter seal then install seal on transmitter.
    NOTE
    Always replace the seal after every disassembly.

  4.  
  5. Mount transmitter on rim and tighten nut at a maximum speed of 10 rpm.
    NOTE
    Make sure no burrs exist in the valve stem hole of the wheel.

  6.  
  7. Place wheel on turntable of tire machine. Ensure that transmitter is 270 degrees from mounting/dismounting head.
    NOTE
    Do not touch transmitter with mounting head.
