    If you have no joy with a Duck tape loop, you can try the same method I described here (for removal of a gearshift top badge) - post #10:

    Would need a bit more hot glue, if the surface is not flat, but will still come off clean, once you apply few drops of pure alcohol.

    If the old ones are goosed, just drill an 1/8" hole in them, insert a self tapper and pull off with pliers...

    Maybe as I’m working on an ipad I can’t seem to copy and past the link, but if you go on Amazon and enter Mercedes AMG wheel centre caps you will see them - £22.99 carriage free from someone called Mayfair

    Cheers Dave- being the miserable Scot I am, since it’s only 1 I’m intent on removing intact if possible and repairing it at my leisure for another spare....I could just take the wheel off but I’m way too lazy this week

    Could be worse, you could have these stupid things which try to strip the threads as soon as you look at them: -

    om dont last long , looking at those above. You will be able to buy 5 sets with the cash it cost to but one original set from mb You have just been shafted for that price off amazon . Remove the old ones with out damaging the wheel .Drill two 1/16 holes in the old cap and make a pair of wire hooks to pull them out .

    You are right, the link doesn’t work but if it’s the same ones I saw, there was £14.95 postage so worked out at £23.94 so 5p cheaper but I suspect with that freight charge I’d see them direct from HK in about 3 weeks!

    I could use a hammer and chisel to remove mine as the wheels are past their best.
