Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

On those machines the hub cap is just snapped around a large washer, you can normally pop them off with a screwdriver or small pry bar. The normally come off pretty easily. Once the cap is off the wheel is normally held on with an E-clip or snap ring depending on age of the machine. There is nothing special about the cap and it does not require any special tool to remove or reinstall.
