    TPMS battery change

    Does anyone have had to change the batteries for their TPMS? I just got a quote os US $1200,00 to do this service. Is this in line with what you have experienced?

    Thanks


    Re: TPMS battery change

    The problem is that the batteries cnnot be replaced, they are "fused" to the sensor's themselves so when the batteries run out, you have to replace al four sensors. But I replaced mine and they charged me somewhere around 500-600€ I think.

    My Carrera GT needed the same thing last year.  It was built in early January 2005, so six to seven years is expected life of TPMS sensors.

    The price seems in the same range as I paid.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    My car is from April 2006, so I guess it is time.

    Thank you

    Wow, you got robbed. My 4 news extra ones cost like $90 a pop, and we already get shafted by Porsche pricing.

    Carlos may be talking about installed pricing.  I think four sensors at $90 each uninstalled sounds about right.  


    Re: TPMS battery change

    R&R for 4 tires is about an hour job, or 2, $360 for sensors, that's about $5-600 US, 4-500 Euro.


    Re: TPMS battery change

    Installed price of course, its not like I'm goibg to fit them myself ;) ... around 500 and something I believe it was though I can't remember exactly.

    Re: TPMS battery change

    I just changed tires (michelin Cup's again)  on the RS - and since I didn't bought it from a official Porsche-Garage (they were +30% more expensive) they charged me 443 Sfr for FITTING only.....- I found it rather ridiculous....but wanted to do it in a official dealer because of the center-lock and 600nm etc....


    Re: TPMS battery change

    just got the 6th. yr.service done and in the ecu printout it gave the remaining battery life expectancy for each wheel. 2 were 15mo. other 2 20mo. soo.. guess that works as ill be getting new tires at the same time. note to bring wallet.
