Okay.
This is the first time I'm putting my Viper up in the air and I realize I have no fkn clue how to remove the hub cover from the wheels...I checked the service manual and it, surprisingly, didn't have any information for me. I know the OEM owners manual/packet came with a dental tool looking thing for this very job..(Of which I, of course, do not have)..



Before you ask, YES: I already tried drinking 2 glasses of Captain Morgan and a shot of Patron.. I KNOW, it still won't come off. Do I need some special OEM tool? Do I just need to stick my flathead deeper in there and pry harder? I felt like I was about to chip a chunk out of it before the hub cover came off...

Any tips will be rewarded with Gen2 pics with tits.

It's held on by some very strong spring clips. you can also use a metal paint can opener from home depot

The tool that came with the owners manual looks just like a paint can opener.
