Wheel Nut Caps

Post by Dunn VAG Happy » Tue Dec 13, 2016 5:20 pm

Ok so lost a few wheel nut caps recently, and before anyone ask im not a newbie to a pressure washer so i didn't force them them off like that, anyway lost a few so i got some from SEAT at 85p a go. I got a few spares anyway as a few feel loose and they will only end up coming off on a long run.

Part Numbers are as follows:

Standard nut cap: 4MO-601-173-B

Locking nut cap: 4MO-601-173-C

Picture for people who dont know what i mean:

Apparently quite common - hasn't yet happened to me, but neighbour who got his black Ateca a few weeks before me has lost several. Think they're a bit too wide in diameter. I gave him some spare money from Audi :lol: :lol:

Keep checking 'em folks ! :D

The new ones fit incredibly snug compared to the ones that came with the car! I have never had this problem before so its incredibly frustrating, especially when they can get the replacements right.

Found one on the drive and discovered that 5 more had disappeared. Ordered a new set of chrome ones from ebay for £12.99 rather than claim under warranty. Will make sure they fit properly.

Whilst having my car washed for the first time, I was handed 4 black caps which I had no clue what they were, I asked the man washing my car but he didn't speak English. Anyway, eventually sussed what they were and pushed them back on, checking the others too and they were all loose and had to click them all into place.
I did wonder whether they are man enough for the job and will definitely be checking them at next wash time.

I haven't either... suspected it's related to power washing.

Don't forget to get the low down Saggy on the glove box removal and refitting. They will have a PDF for sure. Use your charms for a copy :).
