Porsche 914 Factory Tool Kit Hubcap Removal Tool

What the...?

Beginning with the 1974 model year, the "base" package Porsche 914 came with painted, "styled" steel wheels, As such, no 1974-1976 Teeners had hubcaps. Despite this fact, every Porsche 914 factory tool kit throughout the entire production run included a simple curved steel-wire hubcap puller designed to be used in conjunction with the lug wrench tommy bar.  It is surprising that, with the cost-containment effort affecting the tool kit so dramatically during the 1973 model year, the obvious step of not including an unnecessary tool (no matter how inexpensive) would have been overlooked.

it is likely that many of the hubcap pullers were removed at the dealership or discarded by owners if the car in question had no hubcaps. Fortunately, this is the same item included in VW tool kits of the era, so locating a factory replacement is easy and inexpensive.
