Wheel cover 2016 Vista 27N

Hello forum.... trying to remove wheel covers off my 2016 Vista 27N... can anyone advise if the 2 opposing non fake lug nuts are screw off or pull off? And what size socket is required if the former?

I thought there was some sort of special tool included when we picked up our 2016 Sunstar. Like a short combination lug wrench / screwdriver / pry tool. Do you have something like that?


Try searching the internet for

"how to remove wheel covers 2016 f53 chassis".
There are at least 3 youtube videos showing you how to do it.

I was supplied with one and it was useless. I went and bought a 1 1/8 socket to get the cover nuts off. They are screw off and mine were way over torqued but its all good now!

I got one with mine. It's like the flimsy looking T handled lug wrench in the video of the girl taking the wheel covers off of whatever. It does look pretty useless, and I never had a reason to use it, because we traded our Sunstar in before it needed any wheel/tire work.

The removable opposing nuts have a dimple on their side

Flapwing,

Look back by your water pump for the tool attached to the compartment wall with a broom holder type clip. Even though you bought a socket, it might come in handy. These nuts should be lubed a little, and can't take the torque of a breaker bar.

The fake caps just pull off and the lug nut is an 1 1/8" on my 2015 Itasca Cambria 27k.

They unscrew and are identified by small dimples. You should have a special tool with a socket on one end and T-handle on the other. Once you get them off coat the threads with grease (something like white lithium works well) to preclude seizing problems in the future.
