Ok, so this may be a REALLY stupid question, but how do you take off/ put on the dust caps/hubcaps on the front axle? When I took mine off I had to use a small pry bar and Channel lock pliers, I put a hole in one and bent the washer on another. Also when trying to get one back on it seemed way to small to fit over the washer, and I actually destroyed one. I'm sorry I have to ask this stupid question, thanks for any advice.

Notice that the hubcap wont fit over the washer.

Probably no good way to get them off without ruining them if they are old and hardened up. Guess their rubber aren't they? Warm it up with a hair dryer or something maybe before you try working it off is all I can think of.

+1 on heat. That will make them soft and pliable again, for about a minute.
