I think they are wrapped around the rim with the tire covering it.

They could be part of the valve stem itself also. Alot of the newer vehicles you have to be real careful when de-beading a tire because the sensor is part of the valve stem.

Imagine a sensor with a big hose clamp that clamps it to the rim center itself. I beleive that's how all ford's are.

Some cars have sensors built into the valvestem. you can tell these because it is metal with a nut on it. I worked on a ranger the other day and it is held on with pretty much a big hose clamp. The standard is for the tpms module to be located 180 degrees from the valve stem.

what do you need to do with the sensor?
