Installation of Wheel Center Caps
Step 1. Removal of the original wheel center cap from the alloy wheel
Remove the wheel off the car and push the original center cap out of the back side of the alloy wheel. You can find a tip on how to remove the original wheel center cap without taking off the wheel here.
Step 2. Push the new wheel center cap with your hand in the
place of the old one into the center hole of the alloy wheel. Please note that
the cap must be pushed straightly not in any other way, because it may result
in damage of the cap. To push the cap, sufficiently large force is necessary.
If the center hole of the wheel is too small for pushing the wheel center cap (even despite sufficiently large force used for pushing), the size of the center cap does not correspond to your wheel. In this case it is necessary to send the center caps back to UpstreamCenterCaps (see Return Policy) and ask for smaller size of the center caps. The same applies if the center hole of the wheel is too big for the purchased center cap and so the cap cannot be tighten to the wheel firmly. In this case it is necessary to exchange the center cap for bigger one.
On very rare occasions, the center cap can be pushed into the center hole of the wheel but not completely because the hole is not deep enough. In such cases it is necessary to remove the four longest plastic arms (clips) of the cap with pliers and try to push the center cap into the hole again. If it is still not possible to push the cap completely, it is necessary to remove other four longest arms and to continue this process till the cap fits completely.
Note: It is not possible to return and refund such damaged cap, and therefore the user must consider such handling and apply it only by the above mentioned problem (it is possible to push the cap into the hole of the wheel but not completely – at least the four longest arms can be pushed into the center hole of the wheel in such a way that the cap can be fastened to the center hole without support).
