Yeah so after forever the changed the caps. They feel a bit different, but they are hard to get back on... Why must we change things that work just fine.

probably made by alcoa. EWWW, DIET!!!!!
Most of our projects focus on taking apart a perfectly good car and screwing it up. At least that's what the masses would think. In personalizing, customizing, and focusing our cars on performance above all else, we inevitably upset the delicate balance of ride and handling, horsepower and fuel economy, and perhaps even styling and anonymity that the OEM spent so many billions of dollars to achieve. Whatever, we think they're better.

To be fair, the old designs sucked if you have even the slightest bit of moisture on your hands.

Have you tried the old trick of putting the cap on firmly and rotating counter-clockwise until the threads lock evenly?

last time i checked, counter clockwise is unscrewing something. my folks taught me when i was young- lefty loosey, righty to tighten something up.......they were never good at rhyming.

Yeah. That's what I mean. You unscrew it and it falls onto the threads evenly, then tighten it...
