Wheel center cap

Can anyone tell me how to remove the front center cap on my wheels. I know how to remove the rears. Just not sure about the fronts.

There will be 2 'lug nuts' with dimples, or lines on them. Those are the real nuts. Remove those and the cap will come off.

Alcoa wheel

These are Alcoa Aluminum wheels. Only the center piece is a cap. Does that still apply?

I don't know, sorry. I'm just recounting how mine come off, but they aren't aluminum.

What HarryStone said.

Those appear to be the same as mine.

There should be a tool to remove the two with the dimples on them. Once you have those off as the other replies noted, the cover will come off.

Some have all lugs real. Mine do. The smaller center cap, which may be what he is asking about, just pops on and doesn't seem to be made to come off again. Is there a reason OP wants to take it off? I recently replaced one. I think you could pry it off with a flat head screwdriver or something similar, but I doubt it would fit back on well and tight.

You have Alcoa aluminum wheels, the center is simply a hub cap that attaches with small spring clips on the back side outer edge of the cap. The clips press against the wheel's center opening to hold them on. Use a small thin flat blade screw driver to slip between the edge of the cap and the wheel and pop it off. Note when replacing that it will have cutout areas that need to be aligned with the hub centering flange, then simply press it back on. The only reason to remove these caps is to check the hub oil level.
