|RIVET INSTALLING TOOL|
This tool is owned by JP Henrikes. Origin unknown but says "Hungary" on it and has a part number of P 001 and a logo of an "S" over a "T" in a vertical oval. Notice the angled cut, which clears the angle of the clip. I have seen a picture of this in an original workshop manual, but no part # was called out. I have recently seen this tool for sale at some places. Call around to the big companies.
|Many companies carry replacement clips
(such as www.wolfsburgwest.com ), and most of
them are junk.These clips are made in Brazil. After you spend all your time replacing them
they break the first time you take your hubcap off. Try your local VW dealer for the
original ones, theyre still available. VW calls them "Springs".
The clip (spring) is VW part number: 111 601 131
