Siemens Offers Aftermarket TPMS Program
(Akron/Tire Review) Siemens VDO’s Service & Special Solutions group has developed a new aftermarket program for TPMS replacement and service parts. The program helps technicians service vehicles equipped with TPMSs made by Siemens VDO, the company said.
The TPMS components in a tyre consist of a sensor assembly, which includes five service parts – a valve core, valve nut, valve cap, seal and seal washer, according to Siemens, which adds that the service parts have to be replaced each time a tyre is serviced.
“Proper education and information will be essential at all levels of distribution, including distributors, wholesalers, tyre dealers, repair shops, body shops, service technicians, and the end consumer,” said Howard Laster, director of marketing and business development for Siemens VDO Service & Special Solutions.
“We want to make sure that our service customers have the parts and knowledge they need to get the job done right when they have to service a TPMS-equipped tyre,” Laster added.
