Hello there! I'm Eurocar ! I will try to assist you as much as I can. Quality research = Quality answer!!
hello with the cap still off do you see 2 allens screws ? if so please remove the screws and take the center piece off
there is a possibility that the holes that the cap goes in may be warped because of the 2 bolts were torqued too much
please let me know
I think there are either 2 or 4 allen screws but would have to take another look. If I take 2 of them off will that help me seat the center cap and then how would I get the center piece back on? Trading small problem for a bigger one, no?
sorry for the delay . the cap goes last . you need to straighten the metal to accept the cap . what happens with a tire rotation the cap comes out and then the 2 screws come out to get to the lug nuts. after rotation the metal ring goes first and then the 2 screws and usually gets overtorqued and then the cap is difficult to install . the metal must be straightened to accept the cap
Yes, that worked. Thank you. I think I for sure would have broken the wheel cap before I thought of trying that.
