Nathan, Doug and Mark,

I had no idea this has been a thorn for so long. I thought someone would say "Hey Bob there is a $10 tool for that" ..What does Porsche do? If that threaded bung has a history of coming off????I think when I do get them off I will drill a concentric hole and install a class 8 bolt with the threaded shank facing outboard and make a puller from C channel like I said earlier. The slidehammer is not a good method because it relies on a shock method which that bung and its attachment process has a history of failure.. I think I will design a puller and sell them.

Do you think they would sell for $10-15 if they worked? A thinner dust cap with a firm attachment device....Hummm! I bet VW makes a cheap dust cap that would fit and be modified? Thinking out loud!

Thanks

Bob
