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 surfaces 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. 7. While holding the tire pressure sensor to keep it from rotating, torque the valve nut to 4 N·m (0.4 kgf·m, 3 lbf-ft). You may hear a snap or pop as you torque the nut; this is normal. NOTE: • Install the tire pressure sensor so the sensor housing surface does not protrude into the bead area of the wheel. • Do not reuse a grommet that has been tightened, even one time, to the specified torque. The valve stem may leak. • Do not use pneumatic or electric tools on the valve nut. • Tightening the nut above the specified torque can damage the grommet. • Make sure that there is no space between the sensor and the wheel. 8. Install the tires according to the instructions in the service manual.
