How to assemble a new valve on my old bladder

Our 3 inch diameter base allows you to easily span almost any hole left after removing a faulty valve. A quick simple solution to fix what used to be a fatal problem.

Check out the explanation below to find how how to attach a valve on your new strut bladder.

Most OEM valves will peel off easily after being soaked in boiling hot water for a minute or two.


If hot water won't allow you to peel off the valve don't pull too hard. get a pair of scissors and cut carefully around the perimeter of the valve.


Wipe down the area around the marking(s) with the alcohol wipe provided, ALLOW TO AIR-DRY. the peel and stick valve will not adhere to the bladder if it hasn't been properly cleaned with the alcohol wipe provided.

Stick the valve(s) to the bladder paying attention to the marking(s) and the valve arm position. Place the valve over the hole. Do not stick to the inside of the bladder.


Work around the perimeter of the valve base firmly pressing the valve onto the bladder. flip the bladder over and continue to press the valve on from the backside. work all the visible air bubbles out from below the valve.
