    I'd like to replace my worn center caps with new. I've got a 1989 Mondial T Cab with stock wheels.
    Any idea what the center cap part #'s are and how to remove the center caps? Do I need
    to take the wheels off to get at the center caps?
    Thanks,
    Ron

    Try Ricambi America, Daniel is a great guy to work with. Part #108947.

    As for removal, while I haven't done this myself, some guys will drill a small hole off-center on the cap and get at them that way(assuming you aren't saving them for some other purpose). Perhaps someone else can give a better suggestion on removal.

    Remove the wheel and pop them out with the butt end (not the blade end!) of a screwdriver. They come out with a light tap. Make sure you have something soft for them to land on so they don't get scratched up.

    Be very careful putting pressure on the caps, because the plastic easily cracks.

    They arrrive, from Ferrari, wrapped in a kitchen paper towel. It's amazing, really. Every single cap has slight scratches and blemishes (easily buffed right out in seconds), and are frankly, quite fragile.

    Take the wheel off the car and pop them out from the back of the wheel. When putting the new ones in, use a rubber mallet and an old dishrag or towel or something.
