Take the tire iron out of your trunk and use the end to pry it off. Use a little force and work you way around till it pops off.

If they're like the ones on my '93 Caprice, they're locking wheel covers. Your car would have originally came with a "key" that looks like a little wrench. This is used to remove the special bolt that holds the wheel covers on. You may still be able to get a replacement from the dealer. You'll need your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). The VIN will be on your registration. Given the car's age though the information may be no longer available. In that case you may have to drill out rhese special bolts & replace them with regular bolts. HTH. -Jim

i' d look for the key, like jim said. it should be in the trunk.. provided that nothing was thrown out. it is a metal part that looks like a mini wrench. it will unscrew a plastic lock nut under the removable cover of the center hub cap.
