AA to the rescue - So how do you remove wheel nut covers?
On the M6 tonight East Bound near J1 when they shut the motorway today due to the weather conditions! If thats not bad enough sitting there for an hour without moving the guy in the Golf GTi next to me shouts across to tell me the front tyres low..."Yes low profile tyres its Ok" says I but checked anyway only to find a flat. Eventually get to the hard shoulder across 3 lanes of unhelpful drivers and get the kit out to change my nice 20 spoke front wheel and then struggle for 10 minutes unsuccessfully with the crappy clip to prise off the caps without scratching the wheels. A very nice man form the AA kindly pulls over to help and pulls the caps off with a pair of long nose pliers..apparently its not the first time....so anybody have a tip on best removal tool, or replacement caps? By the way the AA guy refused payment...probably because all I had was Euros..great bloke, sent an email to the AA with his number. then travel the next 100 miles at max 50mph on the skinny!
