How to remove the hubcap

Silly Question

How does one remove the hubcap? I notice is spins a bit. I have not figured out how to pull it off. I do okay with child protective caps.

It has a flange on the backside that holds it in place. To remove, you need to remove the wheel.

LOL that is backwards. Usually you remove the hubcap and then the wheel.

I agree, this is an unusual application. After you remove the wheel, you push the cap through from the front. Once you forget to put the cap in the wheel a few times before you reinstall the wheel, you remember the sequence much easier.....

These are not hubcaps ... they are center caps ... most all aluminum wheels with the chrome center caps are equipped this way. The center cap goes on before you mount the wheel to the brake hub like has been explained. My boat wheels are the same configuration.

Ok - since we’re discussing caps - the cap has a removable plug and I noticed the wheel bearing has a removable plug - does that mean I have wet bearings on my ‘17 305RL? Only had the rig 7 months and it been to the dealer more that camp grounds ... some of them my fault so the dealer said.

And what is APDIO?

Sure wish mine came with wet bearings. Works fantastic on our boat trailer. Thanks to the OP for asking that question. I too, was wondering how the h*** that danged cap came off. I guess I'll have to take the tire off to simply find out what kind of bearings I have??
