Talking Removing center caps-no tool!

Recently I was swapping center caps among my 911s. I did not have the special tool that the dealer doesnt sell BTW-

A customer came up with the answer.

Take an allen head wrench, 5/64. Put short end in the center cap hole and bring outer piece of wrench to a 90 degree angle. Take your pliers and pull!

Presto, cap is in your hand, safe and sound.

Hope this helps!

Richard, can you or someone else on the list tell me the exact width of a Porsche center cap?

I wonder because I'd like to see if they fit on my ROH aftermarket wheels. They're cheezy rims, but I'd though I'd dress them up as best as I can until I can afford to buy the 18 inch Carrera wheels and tires I want.

Talking

Appears to be 3" straight across, ie the diameter. Now wait a minute, is that the radius?

No, diameter.

Well, you know what I mean!
