    Might not be any help fella but my mate has something similiar, is there a small groove on the edge if so I think a small tool goes in and then you can turn it.

    Daft Question?

    Thanks bud, there is a small hole.

    I'm assuming its simply a case of inserting "something" and turning anti-clockwise.

    Just thought I would check first though, preparation is key!!!!

    Insert a flat blade screwdriver (or plastic ideally). See in your car toolkit first. The cap lifts straight off, don't turn it!

    Big Al is right. Inside the boot, beside the spare wheel, you should have a box containing a toolkit for changing a wheel. One of the items should be (if it is not missing) a small looped piece of metal wire with a hooked end. Insert the hooked end into the small slot on the wheel centre cover, and pull off.
