| Are They Huf or Beru Sensors? |
In January 2012, Beru sold their TPMS division to the German auto-electronics company, Huf. The sensors purchased from them since then will now say Huf on the housing, while it is still the exact same item. No matter the branding that is on the sensor you can be assured it is a BMW OEM part.
What does TPMS do?
The system monitors the pressure of the tires (some cars monitor the spare tire as well) and provides the driver a warning if any tire is under inflated.
- DO NOT use tire puncture sealant as it could damage the sensor.
- Removal of the OEM tires can damage the sensor. The sensor must be removed prior to dismounting the tire from the rim. There is a specific procedure for doing this and the dealer and tire shops familiar with TPMS systems should be able to do it properly.
Can I install sensors on my new wheels?
Yes. You can also swap the sensors from the OEM wheels. Read special precautions above about sensor removal. Not all wheels will accept the sensors. Some aftermarket wheels may be labelled 'TPMS ready', but you will have to verify the sensor will properly fit. New sensors will have to be registered with the vehicle's computer to clear the TPMS light.
What about tire rotation?
Tire rotation should not affect the sensors. Worst case, you will get the blinking TPMS and may have to make a trip to the dealer to clear the code.
