bump. I need this too.

The best I have is Section 253 (40700M). This taken form the catalog at courtesyparts.com, but they have no price for it.

Expensive -- hopefully this is for a set but you'll need to check with their CS (price listed is $128.50) and appears to match the part number listed earlier ...

http://www.tpmsdirect.com/NISSAN_LEAF_T ... 216-10.htm

I've bought OEM TMPS valves for a smart fortwo from Tire Rack (I think for around $26 to $28) but didn't see anything on their site for the Leaf -- they may indeed have them but it's a special order.

I think at a Nissan Dealer, the LEAF Pressure Sensor is around $100 each!

I will just put a regular stem in my spare wheel rim when I get the tire mounted.

------------
I found the LEAF tires (Bridgestone Eucopia EP422 205/55-16 H89 = exact replacement) for about $90 each (+tax, and shipping, if needed) from http://www.onlinetires.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; in Cerritos, CA.

I will probably arrange to get some before our next Gathering in Cerritos. Up to $100 off on set of 4 or more using a AmExp Rewards card.
Who in our Gathering has such a credit card?

Also, I am trying to find a nearby place that would do "stem, mount, and balance" (with Nissan-type weights) for $20 (or less for several).

Did some more checking and the exact OEM part# is 40700-1LA0C and it's a Pacific TPMS valve; the same TPMS is used on the 2011 Nissan 370Z(base), Quest and Leaf -- these should hopefully come down in price as alternate brands are made available -- luckily they aren't only used on the Leaf but a few more models that sell in larger quantities!

So, did anybody find a TPMS valve that is:
1. tested to work on the LEAF
2. not too expensive?

To use a "spare", it might be best to just have no TPMS in the spare, using it (and suffering the TPMS Fault light, possibly flashing) until the original is fixed, and then swap the original wheel (with the original TPMS, already expected by the LEAF's control module) back onto the LEAF?

Fixing a ruined tire will still require a new tire (see http://www.onlinetires.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; for $90 + tax and shipping) and possibly a new TPMS (that will need to have its ID programmed into the car's control module).
