I know there is a genuine VW tool for this but never seen one so I made a substitute. If you dont want scars on your wheels or dents in your chrome wheel trims then make one. Coathanger wire works fine. I bent the wire around my wheel brace but thats up to you. A long screwdriver would be fine. A twist to hold it together and cut to the right length, then bend the legs to suit the holes in the hub cap and its done. Tip! measure on the job before you cut and do not bend too far or it will hit the inside of the cap. Stick the wire ends into the hubcap, lever against the tyre and 'boing' its off! Magic.. tell me how yours works!
