Important notes when working on vehicles with the tire pressure warning system

Always carry out a tire pressure warning system short test on the respective wheel every time a wheel or tire is changed.

After the wheels have been finally balanced or after running on the test bench, erase the fault memory In the tire pressure warning system control unit.

If Club-sport vehicles are fitted with winter tires, remove the spacer on the rear axle if necessary. This is only necessary if the vehicle is fitted with permitted rims having a different offset, if the spacers are not removed, the pressure-operated switch will be offset in relation to the HF sensor which will activate the pressure loss display on the instrument cluster.

Rims without pressure-operated switches must not be fitted to vehicles with the tire pressure warning system.
