How do I remove the plastic centre caps over the wheel nuts?

Post by Bazzer » Wed Jun 10, 2020 3:01 pm

Does anyone know how to remove these plastic centre caps that cover the wheel nuts? I don't want to force anything as they seem pretty flimsy

They just pull off. I have them fitted. I'd use a plastic lever from the centre edge of cap.

Nope ... they pop out about 1/4" and then they won't move any further

Give a good pull. I just tried mine and they pulled off with a good pull just using fingers grabbing the centre of cap.
