Rear Hub Cap

I was in having a tire repaired today and the kids in the shop says there is a tool designed to remove the retaining bolt on the Freightliner hub cap. This is the device which screws into the centre of the hub and says Freightliner on it.

I called the local Freightliner dealer and after some puzzling to understand what I meant, they said there is no such tool.

I don't believe them. Anyone have a part number?

There was a guy selling these who was mentioned when I attended Camp Freightliner a few years ago. It was a plastic wrench that appeared quite pricy for what you got. I glued 2 pieces of tempered Masonite together and cut it out with a jig saw. My handle is about 12" long. Works great.... I pull wheels annually and have been using my homemade wrench for 4 years.

There is a guy on the DOAI (Discovery Owners Association) website, his name is Herb Peterson, I think, that sells these . I want to say they're like $15 or something like that. See if you can get onto the site. If not, and you want me to get you the info, let me know.

I got mine while at Camp Freightliner, I think the cost was $10.00. It's a heavy plastic wrench that even has directions stamped on it. There's a website on the wrench: www.rcmolding.com/hubtool, but the link doesn't work. I'd give Gaffney service a call, since they advertised their sale during "camp".

I got mine at Camp Freightliner two years ago. I saw them for sale at the factory service center when I was there this past Feb. You may want to give them a call.
