Hi all, I just bought baby moon hubcaps for our Trillium
and put one on the way I remembered putting on hubcaps -- with a rubber hammer. I immediately put two obvious dents in the poor thing. So, I looked it up on Google and found this from Larry on Little Guy Forum. Just FYI: (Also, anyone want a brand new baby moon with dents?)
"To remove a baby moon you need a special tool... or a bent screwdriver, or in my case a child size hammer. If you are using anything other than the hubcap removal tool be sure and tape any part of the tool that will come in contact with the rim to protect the paint
Place a towel on the ground below the moon.
Look at the moon/rim. You will see 3 bumps where the moon touches the rim. Place the tool of choice between the moon and rim next to one of the bumps and pry. The moon should pop off with very little pressure. Now you know the reason for the towel!
To re-install the moon on the rim, hold the moon with both hands, thumbs together at the top and fingers down at the other two corners of a triangle (matching the locations of the bumps on the rim). Hook the edge of the moon where the fingers are over the two lower bumps. Carefully lift up with the fingers while pushing in with your thumbs on the upper edge of the moon. The moon should pop on to the rim with little pressure and you should leave no dents."
