How do I remove the hub caps?

Asked by Joseph Aug 08, 2013 at 09:03 AM about the 1972 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have just purchased a 1972 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow. I want to pack the front wheel
bearings but I cannot get the hub caps off. I tried prying them off like I would any other
vehicle but they are not budging. Before I use too much force and bend the hub cap, I
want to check to see if there is a certain procedure that I am not aware of. All help will be
appreciated. Thanks, Joe

Did you look online at "" or another repair manual website yet ? From what I can find it looks as if they snap on but the "snap ring" is not on the outer rim like Ford or Chevy, its almost at the middle "emblem ring" area.
