Tire pressure sensors

Can they be removed from the stock wheels? I was told by Firestone that they can't. Anyone know how much new ones are? (Firestone couldn't tell me)

This is dated but might help? Not sure if the link works, my dial-up is cranky today.

Hey "Panel".......

I am assuming this........but yes, because they, as recommended by the manufacturer, need to be serviced (or rebuilt) everytime the tire is "broken" from the wheel.

Also, asked this question at a NATIONAL tire seller. He stated they would remove the OEM sensors and install them, after rebuilding, into non OEM custom wheels.

I guess the OEM sender/transmitter, that is attached to the sensor, is proprietary.

The sensor itself can be removed easily, the valve stem, I'm guessing, can then be pushed out. If I ever want to sell the stock wheels though, I'm going to have to buy another set of sensors anyway. A little help from the part number guru's?

Edit: Nevermind, I already had a picture of the pn (15922396)
$30 a piece on gmpartsdirect.

I know I'm not the only one with aftermarket wheels. What did you guys do?

Took a few pics:

The tire pressure monitors is on 2008+ models for the HHR, so you may be the first to install aftermarket wheels on 2008 and deal with the problem but not the last. I would think whoever you get/got your aftermarket wheels from they should help you.

I'm getting ready to install some Smoothie II's on my Panel and was debating on what to to about the sensors. When you ordered them did they come with the valve stem also or just the sensor?

I haven't ordered them yet. I assume they come with the valve stem also, since it's different than a regular one. I'll probably go to the dealer pretty soon and see what they say, because the DIC warnings are getting annoying. I also assume that you will have to go to the dealer anyway to get them programmed.

Question about the 2008 tire pressure monitor:

On the DIC readout does it show you the pressure in each tire or is it one the systems which display a warming when pressure drops in one of the tires and then you have to figure out which tire it is?

My 2000 Impala had the latter type of system but I know digital pressure readouts are available on some GM models (usually the more expensive ones.)
