I bought one of the cheap ones at pep boys and it worked fine until it got stuck on the cap. It was size "B" I believe.

Last time I had the car in the shop, my mech took it off and I never got it back.

Bought a replacement, same exact one I had before, and this one was a fraction too small. figured if I could get it on I would leave it there. it was so cheap the square hole for the ratchet broke off of it. LOL

I used a pair of huge vise grips and a towel on it to stop it from damaging the top in order to knock it loose then untwisted it by hand. Worked for me in a pinch.

I'd rather get the mb factory tool, or the one gilly mentioned.
