    :doh:Hi all. Has anyone got any tips on how to get the stainless steel wheel bolt cap things off. My tool in the tool kit was all broken , so i went to dealer brought another tool and in about 2 mins all the teeth broke of this one. Its my spare which seems to be giving most grief . Regards Mark

    are you sure they're meant to come off? some are and some aren't.

    You can often undo the wheel nuts with the caps still fitted.;)

    The only ones that are meant to come off are the locking nuts, as far as i know.
    Had a tyre changed today and the guy took the wheelnuts off with the caps still on.

    If they are like mine, the only cover that can be removed is the one over the locking nut.
    All the other nuts are undone or tightend with a socket/wheel brace with the caps in place.
