Changing tires with a TPMS

Changing tires with a TPMS  - Tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) - Seating and Safety Restraints - Lincoln MKS Owners Manual - Lincoln MKS

Each road tire is equipped with a tire pressure sensor located inside the tire/wheel cavity. The pressure sensor is attached to the valve stem. The pressure sensor is covered by the tire and is not visible unless the tire is removed. Care must be taken when changing the tire to avoid damaging the sensor. It is recommended that you always have your tires serviced by an authorized dealer.

The tire pressure should be checked periodically (at least monthly) using an accurate tire gauge, refer to Inflating your tires in this chapter.
