On Monday my little Noddy car warned me to check my tyres, so I went to the petrol station, took off the valve caps and put in the required amount of air in each tyre, only 4psi each so nothing too bad. Of course when I went to replace the valve caps I dropped one inside the alloy, won’t see that again! So, I cranked up ebay and typed in the search engine ‘valve caps for Fiat 500’ and found these little beauties and they were cheap as chips!
Apparently you can tighten them with a little spanner so people don’t steal them, (because wicked people with half a brain and inbred faces do steal valve caps) but as Phil pointed out, I too wouldn’t be able to get them off without going through the rigmarole of using a spanner. 🙄 Anyways I will be applying them in daylight tomorrow and I’m stupidly happy with them.
Also the tyre pressure warning light came back on today so either the one missing a cap is leaking, or I’ve got a slow puncture somewhere. Sigh.
