Default Help! Removing center cap on AVUS wheels

How do I remove the AVUS center cap with the ring hook? The manual says: "with the hook pin engaged,..." What does that mean?

Sorry, it's my first Audi.

Default Look in the trunk

Under the deck lid, left side of the tire. There is a wire ring in the black kit. Insert the end of the ring into the hole on the black ring of the cap. Pull the cap off.

Default You have to tape your heals together three times while snaping your fingers above your head

lol I never used that 'hook' I just use to use a flat head screw driver.

Default Just stick it in!

Insert the end of the pin into the hole.

Make sure you insert it far enough to "hook" the pin against the inside of the cap (the pin thingy is bent or curved, if I recall).

Then just pull -- it should pop off easily.

OK got it. I thought it was something more sophisticated than that.

Thanks!

Default The end of the hook should point inward....

...toward the center of the cap after you insert it. Then just pull sharply.
