Tyre pressure monitor sensor broke

Post by gg234 » Tue May 07, 2019 8:13 am

Hi,

My18 DS got punctured and i went to local kwikfit to repair.Kwikfit engineer repaired the puncture and everthing was fine after 3 weeks my Tyre pressure monitor sensor showing as not monitored where the puncture took place.

I spoke with my local dealer and he suggested me to go to kwikfit and this time i took to different kwikfit branch, they found that the pressure monitor sensor was broken with tape attached to it.We took the pictures and informed the previous kwikfit branch manager.He is happy to reimburse the money whatever it cost.

I have booked LR dealer appointment sometime last week of this month.My question is does this work cover under my service package or i have to pay for this work.

Thanks for your help

Regards

I believe you will have to pay for the sensor replacement at LR and then claim the money back from Kwik Fit. However, I thought the sensors were generic items and assume Kwik Fit can replace the sensor? I would check with the original Kwik Fit what exactly he means.
MY19 P240 HSE, Indus Silver, Black Pack, Privacy Glass, 12 Way Memory Seats, Roof Rails, Spacesaver, Cold Climate Pack, 2 x USB in 1st & 2nd rows.
Gone: MY16 D180 HSE Black, Santorini Black
