    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    It should come off no bother with a mallet and chisel/flat blade - never had an issue and have done it on 3 different cars.

    The tool is cheap enough if you want to save yourself some agro. Getting that ring on and off is the only part of the job that gives me any grief.

    That's dirt cheap actually - only ever going to get used a few times though in the lifetime of a car. You could rent it out though!

    Removing the filler cap is the "fun" part, lots of lube sprayed around and twisting to get them out.
