Question about Little Tikes Patrol Police Car

Car Axle popped out

Hi,My kids decided to ride our little tikes coupe down the stairs!
Of course the back axle popped out. I tried to hammer it back in but I stopped when I felt that I was applying to much force.
Is there a way to remove the classic end of axle piece, insert the axle and then return the cap securely?
Thanks David

    In the end I just popped it back in with a bit more force.
    I was wondering how to go about getting the red nut off the end?

Yes, you need a new axle nut that goes on the end of the axle. You can find them at your home improvement store for about .50.  Remove the old one and hammer the new one on when you get the axle on.  Good luck!

    You have to get some plyers and squeeze the axle cap from side to side until it comes off.

I put the front wheels on the wrong side can I remove the axle cap and and change the wheels and put the axle cap back on

Unlikely, because the caps tend to self district instead of coming off. Replacement acorn caps should be less than a dollar at a hardware store or a lawnmower repair shop.

How can I remove the red axle cap? I accidenttoy put on without hubcaps

Ok! I can relate to all the frustration. I happened to get into a similar situation with one of the axle caps. Though it looked impossible at first look, it actually is not that tough. Here is a 3 step solution -
Tools needed: Hammer, Screwdriver (flat head)
Steps to remove:
1) Cut open the red cap to expose the metal cap that is stuck.
Observe: If you closely look at the cap, there are two slits along its circumference. These slits are the ones which are locking the cap to the metal rod.
2) Hold the screwdriver to the base of one of the slits and hammer it down so that the slits loosen the grip. The **** would give way. Repeat this step for the other ****.
3) Now, hold the screw driver horizontally under the metal cap's lip (like how you would hold a filing rod to sharpen a kitchen knife) and gently knock off the cap by tapping the screwdriver with the hammer.
Hope this helps :)

Our 2yr old grandson was given a red cozy coup. However, the axle rod connecting the 2 back wheels is partially out. The only way to get it back in is to remove a wheel & slide the rod back through....

This link:
shows which replacement parts are available from Little Tikes, and I don't see the one you're looking for. I tried to call their Consumer Services line at 1-800-321-0183, but they're open M-F from 8 am to 8 pm and Sat 9 am to 2 pm, EST. Please give them a call tomorrow.
An alternative might be to take the piece to a hardware store and see if they have anything that might work as a replacement.
Hope this helps!

I put the front wheels on backwards on the cozy coupe and can't get the red caps off...any suggestions?

Wedge something like a screwdriver under the cap and twist. They usually pop off with a little help.
Otherwise pliers from the top while rocking back and forth may work.
