Ford Galaxy 2004 alloy wheel valves leaking
« on: August 14, 2013, 04:57:00 PM »
Wonder if anyone can help me. The alloy wheel valves of my Ford Galaxy 2004, are slightly leaking. The tyres are 155 x 55 x R16. The valves are metal probably ( chrome bolt in). I have tried tightening them but it did not help. I have asked around different car parts places, but had no luck.  Wonder if there are any sprays available to stop these leaks or any place I can buy them from (only 4 in number). I do not know the size of the valves.
Thank you in advance for your help.

Kind regards
Dennis

Why not just remove them and get the standard rubber ones fitted? You'll have to take the tyres off either way!
