Title: Help, can't get esseesse tyre pressure valve caps off
Post by: cyberdog on April 16, 2012, 05:38:20 am
Went to change to my summer tyres yesterday, and three of tha valve caps are stuck.  The tool seems to just file it's teeth on them.  Any tips?

Hi mate when you put the removing tool over the cap hold the bottom of it tight then turn it, that should stop it filing the teeth  :thumb:

Thanks Darranj.  I have tried, but I didn't get them off.  But took the car in to my local tyre garage this morning and they got them off.  Had to break one of them, but the others came off in one piece.  They're NOT going back on...

Stupid patent on the speciality tool...
