2009 Acura RDX 19 Aluminum Wheel Installation Instructions


Download Installation : NOTE: • This aluminum wheel is designed for use on vehicles equipped with TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System). • This aluminum wheel is equipped with a TPMS sensor. See the service manual for the tire replacement procedure and TPMS sensor installation procedure. • Install the correct size tire (245/45R19 98Y). • The wheel nut torque is 108 N·m (80 lb-ft). • Be careful not to damage the wheel center cap when installing the emblem. • The center cap emblem kit should be installed only if the ambient air temperature is 60°F (15°C) or above. • To allow the adhesive to cure, do not wash the vehicle for 24 hours. 1. Before installing the tire pressure sensor, clean the mating surface on the sensor and the aluminum wheel. 2. Install the tire pressure sensor to the aluminum wheel and loosely install the valve nut. Make sure the pressure sensor is resting on the wheel. 3. Torque the valve nut to 4 N·m (36 in-lb) while holding the tire pressure sensor toward the wheel. You may hear a snap or pop as you tighten the nut–this is normal. 4. Install the tires according to the procedure in the service manual. Be careful not to damage the new sensor. 5. Using isopropyl alcohol on a shop towel, clean the area where the center cap emblem will attach. 6. Remove the adhesive backing from the center cap emblem. 7. Attach the center cap emblem to the wheel center cap by aligning its pins with the holes in the wheel center cap. After attaching, hold the emblem firmly against the wheel center cap with the palm of your hand for 30 seconds
