  • Tyre deflation sensor - result

    I was driving to work this morning and about to drop my car off for the rattly windows to be fixed under warranty when my tyre deflation light came on. At first I thought it was the handbrake warning light but then realised what it was.

    I thought that it was an error as many people on here have had false warnings and I reguarly check my pressures. Even so, I slowed down and nursed the car to the dealer. Along with the warranty work I asked them to check the system and my tyres.

    I just got a call to say that they had ordered the wrong parts for the window (typical) but that I had a puncture. Although it is an **** as its the second in two months I am really chuffed that the technology actually works and had I have been giving the car some stick could have potentially saved me from an accident or at least damaging the alloy.

    What will make you laugh is the dealer is refusing to change the tyre as the machine-finished 18"s might be damaged (they are mint) so I have suggested a local repairer and they have agreed to drop the alloy off there (good service) and also change my headlight bulbs for some uprated osram ones at no cost (again, great service).

    I only hope the tyre can be fixed...

                already have 3 times, never noticed the bit with the dust caps, and i was wondering what people put into there tyres, as in different to the manual, and for what reasons.
