Honda Fit: Tire Pressure Sensor Replacement (USA models)

Second generation (2007-2021) / Honda Fit 2007-2021 Repair Manual / Chassis / Wheels/Tires / TPMS / Tire Pressure Sensor Replacement (USA models)



Each tire pressure sensor contains a lithium anode battery that is not removable. The complete tire pressure sensor should be disposed of according to local battery disposal guidelines or requirements. An improperly disposed battery can be harmful to the environment.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle.

  1. Remove the wheel with the faulty tire pressure sensor.

  1. Remove the tire valve stem cap and the valve stem core, and let the tire deflate.

  1. Remove any balance weights, and then break the bead loose from the wheel with a commercially available tire changer (A).


    Note these items to avoid damaging the tire pressure sensor:

    • Do the outside of the wheel first.

    • Position the wheel as shown so the valve stem (B) is 90 degrees from the bead breaker (C) as shown.

    • Do not position the bead breaker of the tire changer too close to the rim.

  1. Position the wheel so the tire machine (A) and tire iron (B) are next to the valve stem (C) and will move away from it when the machine starts. Then remove the tire from the wheel.

  2. ABC
  1. Remove the valve stem nut (A) and the washer (B), then remove the tire pressure sensor with the valve stem (C) from the wheel.

    NOTE: Check the nut and the washer; if they are deteriorated or damaged, replace them with new ones during reassembly.

  2. ABC
  1. Remove and discard the valve stem grommet (A) from the tire pressure sensor (B).


    • The valve stem grommet might stay in the wheel; make sure you remove it.

    • Always use a new valve stem grommet whenever the tire pressure sensor has been removed from the wheel. When only removing a tire from the wheel, replace the valve stem grommet if it is possible.

  1. Before installing the tire pressure sensor, clean the mating surfaces on the sensor and the wheel.

  1. Install the tire pressure sensor (A) and the washer (B) to the wheel (C), and tighten the valve stem nut (D) finger tight. Make sure the pressure sensor is resting on the wheel.

    NOTE: Install the tire pressure sensor so that the sensor housing surface (E) does not extend beyond the protrusion (F) on the wheel to prevent the sensor housing from being caught on the bead of the tire when assembling the tire.

  3. Tighten the valve stem nut to the specified torque while holding the tire pressure sensor.


    • Do not use air or electric impact tools to tighten a valve stem nut.

    • Do not twist the tire pressure sensor to adjust its position with the wheel, as this will damage or deform the valve stem grommet.

  1. Lube the tire bead sparingly with a paste-type tire mounting lubricant, and position the wheel so the tire machine (A) are next to the valve stem (B) and will move away from it when the machine starts. Then install the tire onto the wheel.

  2. AB
  3. With a dry air source, inflate the tire to 300 kPa (3.1 kgf/cm2,   44 psi) to seat the tire bead to the rim, then adjust the tire pressure, and install the valve stem cap.

    NOTE: Make sure the tire bead is seated on both sides of the rim evenly.

  4. Check and adjust the wheel balance, then install the wheels on the vehicle.

  5. Lower the vehicle. Torque the wheel nuts to specifications.

  6. Connect the HDS, and memorize the pressure sensor IDs using the TPMS tool.
