Got four new shoes today as it was that time.
One TPMS Sensor failed during the chageover - although there was no physical damage - so I replaced it with a spare TPMS I had from aliexpress.
The new sensor, after a few miles just works - which is good.

However - I do notice that it says its the nearside rear, when actually its the offside front - so I suspect that all the wheels are likley squiffy and in the wrong place.

Any idea how to "reset" things so the Ampera can learn where the wheels are again?

It's supposed to be auomatic. I've never had any problems swapping between my winters & summers, and I swap the winters front <-> back (can't swap left to right as they're directional), and the summers get swapped all over the place.

My MY2012 automatically re-learned - but it took sometime, as it has to be switched on, but stationary for a long time.

Manual says:
Each tyre pressure monitoring
system sensor has a unique
identification code. The identification
code needs to be matched to a new
tyre/wheel position after rotating the
vehicle's tyres or replacing one or
more of the sensors.
After changing a tyre, the vehicle has
to be stationary for approx.
20 minutes, before the system
recalculates. The following relearn
process takes up to 10 minutes of
driving with a speed of minimum
12 mph. In this case -- can be
displayed or pressure values can
swap in the DIC.
If problems occur during the relearn
process a warning message is
displayed in the DIC.
Notice
Vehicles equipped with the auto
learn function do not allow manual
sensor matching.
