2012 Acura TL 19 Aluminum Wheel Installation Instructions


Download Installation : 1. Using isopropyl alcohol on a shop towel, clean the area where the center cap emblem will attach. 2. Remove the adhesive backing from the center cap emblem. 3. 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. 4. Slide the push nuts onto the pins. Note the direction of the push nuts. 5. Before installing the tire pressure sensor, clean the mating surface on the sensor and the aluminum wheel. 6. Install the tire pressure sensor and the washer on the aluminum wheel, and tighten the valve nut finger tight. Make sure the pressure sensor is resting on the wheel. NOTE: Install the tire pressure sensor so that the sensor housing surface do es not protrude into the bead area of the wheel. This prevents the sensor housing from being caught on the bead of the tire when installing the tire. 7. Torque the valve nut to 4 N·m (3 lb-ft) while holding the tire pressure sensor toward the wheel. NOTE: • Never reuse grommets that have been tightened, even one time, to the specified torque, as they are deformed inside. • Do not use pneumatic or electric tools on the valve nut. • Tightening the nut above the specified torque will damage the grommet. 8. Install the tires according to the instructions in the service manual. 9. Install the wheels on the vehicle and torque them to 127 N·m (95 lb·ft). 10. Open the driver’s door. Using isopropyl alcohol, thoroughly clean the area where the Tire Pressure Information Label will attach.
