There are aftermarket replacement adjusters, both plastic and metal. Search Ebay, Amazon and online. I purchased metal ones years ago (one and done!), never to have to worry about it again. I think...

Not the case, at least in Canada. I have the full print out of options the car came with. It came with a tire inflator kit with the can of sealant as standard with NRF tires.

A preventive maintenance replacement of fluid and filter at 100k would have been more useful, but changing now is unlikely to hurt, and may help. I would do two changes, to get more of the old fluid...
