Most TPMS sensors are held in using just a screw or a nut, but if not assembled or torqued properly, the results can be catastrophic.
The Honda CR-V uses an indirect TPMS system that uses the rolling circumference of the tire to determine the pressure in the tire.
A typical wheel-mounted TPMS sensor will transmit data about tire pressure and temperature. Newer, tire-mounted models can also gauge acceleration and, in some cases, the direction that the wheel is spinning.
Typically, techs were forced to reuse old hardware or, in some extreme cases, either go without or make something else fit. Now, you probably expect, at minimum, new abutment clips to be included. But there are other hardware items you should also consider while ordering new brake pads.
GM’s Alpha platform is a rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive platform used for the sixth-generation Camaro.

Whether a vehicle is brand new or one that is 10 years old with 120,000 miles on the odometer, most people today expect their brakes to be quiet and not squeal, groan or howl in protest every time the vehicle comes to a halt.
Wheel bearings are changing because the vehicles they are attached to and the brake rotors located on the other side are evolving. This has changed the designs and specifications for most bearings.
The Chevy Trax and Buick Encore are considered sub-compact crossovers based on a car platform.
Nissan TPMS systems began appearing in 2003 as a standard feature or option on most models.
Recently, we had a Jeep Grand Cherokee in our shop for a brake job. Upon removing the rotor, we found one of the rustiest wheel hubs we have ever seen.
This bulletin involves an updated procedure on how to adjust the toe on a vehicle after it has undergone the V06 recall.
When you hear the words “composite rotor,” you might think of a racecar brake rotor with Allen head bolts holding the hat to the outer ring.
