Are you wanting to remove the whole thing and replace it? The valve stem screws into the valve and is removed with a simple tool and screwed in and out. There is a tool to install the valve but I think you cut the base off the old valve and remove it that way??

Valve stems are only changed with the tires off the rim (as far as I know). I've done this for coach bus tires before, remove the valve core with the valve core removal tool, remove the tire from the rim (difficult to do at home if you don't have the proper equipment) Then the valve stem unbolts using a regular combination wrench, You slide the new one in, snug it up put the tire over the rim, give it some air, set the bead, put the valve core back in, then fill it up the rest of the way with air. Fairly simple job with the proper equipment.

The valve for car rims is pulled through the rim in most case and is not bolted to the rim. But yea, the valve is generally replaced with the tire off the rim but not necessarily. Say you cut a valve and it was leaking. You could remove the valve and not have to pull the tire completely off the rim the replace the valve, just squeez it past the rim and tire into the hole and pull it through. I do have rims with valves bolted to the rim...my racing wheels and slicks are setup that way. You can also screw the tire to the rim to keep it from slipping on the rim during a launch.

Thanks for clearing that up for me tazz, like I said I've only ever done it on bus tires and they bolt on.
