not sure what your saying? From the factory they loosen the insert in the valve stem to let the air out. You have to tighten it back up

Ya u need to replace that. Ant tire shop can do it or get the new stem and do it yourself. I have pushed the old ones into the tire and then soaped up the new one and pushed it in from the front with the help of a screwdriver

It looks to me like you have a 2 piece stem. I've not seen one.
I think Zrock is explaining to remove all that you have on there and put a regular rubber stem in like millions of vehicles have. There are 2 sizes. Measure the hole on the rim so you know whether to get the lil or big stem.

Its not a 2 pc stem.. All rubber valve stems are the same. Just the glue on that one finally let go and spit out his insert.
