TST sensor stuck

My tires were rotated yesterday. Front to back and back to front. Stayed on same side. SRW motorhome.

I planned to swap the sensors so that they remained in the same position on the vehicle. ie: move the sensor from the rear passenger side to the front passenger side where it was before the rotation.

These are the TST 507 flow thru sensors. Two of the sensors will not unscrew. They are stuck on. I thought about using a penetrating oil or WD40 but donít know if they will damage the sensor bodies.

I did not use the anti-theft set screws.

Seeking suggestions.

Thanks,

Bobby

We assume you loosened the Allen head set screw. Sorry... had to ask.

No problem. I never tightened those screws. Maybe vibration tightened them. I will have someone check. I lost the dexterity to use the little Allen wrench.

I would use some spray penetrating oil on the TST stems to get help get them loose...

maybe a T-handle set of these would help with your dexterity from Harbor Freight

I believe the 5/64" is the correct size of the set screw...

What material is the threaded part of the sensor made of? My son put aluminum valve caps on his car years ago and they corroded and were very difficult to remove. I canít remember but I may have had to replace a couple of valve stems.

Try some Powerful Blaster penetrating oil.

Good idea. There is not enough clearance between the valve and the wheel to use these but I can put them to good use in other situations.

Thanks

I was thinking the same thing. I now recall removing one last year to replace a battery and was surprised by the corrosion. Had a difficult time then but only for a minute.

I got a 2mm hex screw driver at Menards in Indiana, in May, Works well. They had a whole display of the miniture tools, reasonable price.
