    Default Moulded wheel trims

    I am thinking of taking my molded wheel trims off later, to clean them. I see one of the wheel bolts holds the trim on, but do they just pop off after that? thanks

    I'm talking about the steel wheels that are supposed to look like alloys. Anyone know if they just pull off?

    Hi, I have an 07 Vectra Exclusiv and thought that the bolts retained the wheel trims but they don't. Once the nut covers are removed they can be pulled straight off the wheels. I have done this a few times now for cleaning. HTH

    I tryd that, but when you push it back on, the flange on the wheel bolt dosn't go on the outside of the trim again. So it will not hold the wheel trim on anymore if you do that. One of the bolts has a flange on it, or at least it should do!
