Hi,

I am looking for a bit of help. I am looking for chrome valves. I have bought ones off eBay but they are not wide enough to go over the valves, anyone have this problem. I am also looking for silver door lock pins. Any help would really be appreciated.

This is the ones I have. They are nothing special but they look okay and for the price you cant go wrong.

Thanks Grumps for the response but I am looking for chrome covers for the tyre valves for some strange reason the normal valve covers will not fit.

None of the chrome valve caps I have seen on eBay will fit a 2015 Antara according to the sellers' lists; nor do those shown on BJS's link. I wonder why? Are there differences in valve stems and threads - I always thought they were the same from car to car and have never been asked when having a tyre and valve changed on a spare wheel. Anyway, kids round here nick them for their bikes.

Yes your right Dulac these don't fit the antara valves, but they were just what Ant13 was talking about.
It could well be because of the antaras tpms valves fitted could be bigger than than standard tyre valves ?Edited by: Bigjohnsparky

Hi Guys,
Thanks everyonefor all of your help. The valve caps do fit but I was looking for chrome valve covers. The 20 mm length is fine but they wont fit over the valvesandBigjohnsparkyis probably rightthat it is something to do with the tyre pressure monitoring system. In terms of the door lock pins, they are easy to take off as they just screw off but I have not seen any suitable replacements.
