  • What does this do?

    Hello Gents,
    I was installing my Atiwe hub for the Italvolanti wheel and once I got it on there I noticed something was rubbing on the inside
    of the hub. I checked what it could be and it looks to be this little white plastic piece thats spring loaded. I tried searching and couldn't
    come up with what it does. RealOEM has it marked at #11 but doesnt have any part numbers.

    If it's the same part I am thinking of, it only came on airbag cars. Remove it with pliers if installing a non airbag wheel.

      I figured it was something to do with the airbag wheel. However do you know its purpose? I was thinking of just shaving it down.

        Like Barry said, just gently pull it out with pliers and save it. Once you shave it down it will be really tough to remove it if at some point you need to.
