Looks like a gen 2 Frontier by the dash and the rear disc brakes.

Do you use rubber cement with the plugs? It really helps to make the plug go in much easier aside from helping it seal and adhere.

I don't think I would recommend rubber cement, as I would think it would damage the weather seal if you ever had to take it apart. Silicone grease or dielectric grease would be a better choice, IMO.

I was referring to the tire plug, dry installing the plug is much harder without it and you struggle to push it in without the lubrication of the adhesive. I’ve broken the plastic handle pushing a plug in an very fortunately didn’t shove the metal shaft through my palm.

Nah, just stuffed it all in. If it lasts a year from today I will be good. It costs 10 dollars and takes like 15 minutes to replace...

Would I like to last much longer. Yes! but for 10 dollars and very little work to replace, I won't be angry if I have to do this again in a year.

Now after a month if I need to redo it, I will rethink my strategy and probably spend the money on a new OEM sensor!

Sorry I misunderstood you! No, I do not use rubber cement, but your suggestion is interesting. Specifically your tip on making the plug easier to put in!

However, rubber cement would seem to make how sticky those plugs are, and how they bond to the rubber inactive.

I guess in your experience, this is not an issue! I should probably try this! Thanks for the tip!

Most kits I have bought come with the tube of adhesive and the last ont i I stalked refused to go in so I tried using it and went in much easier. I do want to buy a pro set that has aluminum handles on the reamer and the plug installer too. The bonus would be a blow molded case to keep it orderly.

I think I might have a small tube of rubber cement somewhere. I will try that next time! Thanks for the tip!
