Perhaps I missed seeing the post, but is there an easy way to remove the wheels from an OttoMobile car? I would like to mod my Scirocco.
Thanks,
Joe

Really?

Each wheel comes loose from that procedure? I can then replace them that way?

Perhaps I should have been more specific. Will doing what was suggested allow me to remove the wheels form the axles?

Asking the same question... I have a Peugeot 106 by OttOmobile, and I'd like to change the wheels.... But it seems that they are glued somehow, how can I remove them?

You are best off taking the car apart (really easy) as they use a steel rod as the axle. Then get your new wheels & mount them up on a new axle. If you try to get them off of the original axle you might break them.

F**k you Photobucket.

I've already took the bottom of the model apart, and I've seen that there is a single rod that connects the two wheels... Then I only need the steel rod, 4 new brakes and 4 new wheels

Twist and pull off the axle, it's very easy

Almost all resin cars use metal axles to hold the wheels.

What I do with Otto and GTS is remove the axle as outlined above, then twist the wheels in opposite directions while tugging lightly.
One wheel will go before the other, which should also be loose.....
