The service manual mentions several service tools. Anyone know where they can be purchased?

If they are Vic Service tools, the dealer is the only place to get 'em...

I can't say for sure, but I have purchased "special tools" from Ford, Chevy, and Kawasaki for various vehicles I have owned. Call 'em and ask!

What exactly are you doing that requires "special" tools?

Hey, Jim, me again. If you're talking about the headlight bezel, right after I got my XCT two+ years ago, I went to my local Harbor Freight and bought this set of nylon pry bars: http://www.harborfreight.com/nylon-pry-bar-installer-kit-4-pc-69668.html . Set is almost always on sale, and I probably had a 20% off + free flashlight coupon.

These -- any of the four, really -- are the nuts for taking off the headlight bezel and speaker grills: hard and thin enough to get the job done, and soft enough not to mar or scratch anything. If you don't have a HF nearby, I think most auto parts stores have similar stuff. And I believe the Vic special tool is something like that, too, FWIW, and probably way over-priced.

Thanks for the link! :)

The headlight chrome ring just pries out with your fingers. No special tool needed and no scratching.

I've always thought the right tool is the one that works and paid very little attention to recommendations. Here's a link that may help but note that several of the items may be sold to dealers only.

Ammo: interesting link -- thanks.

Scotty: you're welcome.

Scotty & Jim: from Ammo's link (page 7), their Trim Removal Tool -- https://polaris.service-solutions.com/Detail.aspx?id=503 -- looks remarkably like two of the four of the Harbor Freight set (and more than twice the price).

You can buy those plastic trim removal tools on Amazon quite cheaply as well.

VJ,
Thanks for the clarification! When I saw digital wrench and diagnostic cables I figured some of the parts would be a no go for non-dealers but I wouldn't have guessed it was dealer only.
