Remove Wheel Center Cap?

What is the easy way to remove the stock 2014 18" center cap without taking the wheels off and without marring the wheel or cap? I tried Velcro as posted on utube and only pulled the black around the pony and of course destroyed the cap....another $40.

I don't think you can. The cap has plastic teeth that are held in place with a metal ring that snaps inside them. You can only get to the ring from the backside of the wheel which is not accessible when on the car.

I'm not sure what youtube video you're talking about, but that guy sounds like an idiot. Maybe he did it as a troll to get people who didn't know better to break their stuff?

You have to take the wheel off. Unless your caps fit extremely loose and your not worried about damaging the cap or the wheel. The only possible thing I could think that would work would be a suction cup. But you'll play hell getting them back in with the metal ring installed. Do it right, take the wheel off.

You must type slow. I thought the forum is for information exchanges.

+1 on what DWC_SmOziLLa, Once the wheel is off just pop the center cap out.
