I just ordered a new set of wheel caps to replace the faded and pitted ones that I had. Can someone tell me how I can pop out the old ones and put in the new ones? I know Im retarded but I never really done this before, and dont want to do any damage...

Only one way that I know of: Take the wheels off, pop the caps off from behind then pop the new ones in. Then remount wheels. I have new caps for my SL320 and have been putting off doing this but that's the way it's done.

As long as you're replacing them, I'd punch a hole through it with something and pull it. That's what I did.
