how to get the 2013 TPMS out of wheel to re-use?

Has anyone had any luck removing the 2013 Sensors from the Stock Wheels? These new types are built into a rubber type valve stem and doesnt un-thread like the old ones. I have an appt tomorow to get my new wheels and tires on, but didnt think it would be so hard to get these out without damaging anything. Any tricks?

I could move my appt out and order new ones on ebay, but I really wanna get these mounted tomorrow!!!!

Thanks for your help.

New Memebr here. Just bought our first jeep. 2013 Unlimited in Rugged Brown. Picked it up last week but I cant look at it stock any longer its driving me crazy!!!

IIRC it should be two pieces held in place with a very small screw. They are a bit of a challenge to move but very doable

Heres a Picture. Not sure that I understand. This have one screw in the back to take the sensor off the Valve stem. Is there a trick to safetly remove the rubber valve stem or just brute force?

Thanks for the video. Those however are the 2012 Style. Real easy to get out. I did some more research today and found out tha GM has been using the new Style Bubber valve stems since 2008. A couple Quick searches and I found the Valve Stem portion at Autozone for $3 each. I had to go to three stores as each store only stocks 2 but Im happy and its done. I just unsrewed the sensors from the valve stem and screwed them onto the new valve stem. Its sad none of the jeep dealers stock just the valve stem. Seems they'd be ripping people off if everytime you need a simple valve stem they replace the whol sensor at $90!

heres a pic if anyone has the same problem! Part Number is 20172
