can anyone tell me is there a way of removing the caps of these fittings without destroying them it seems you have to take out the cover to access the screw inside.
I have tried strong tape and even tried glueing something to it failing that I will have to prize it out to get to the screws.

If you mean this type

you put a screwdriver under the edge and they pop off.
There's a plastic washer under the screw with a lip that the caps clip onto.

I suspect he is talking about the “top hat” type with a flat (thin) round rim. First time I tried to prise off the whole thing and broke the rim part. Then tried to prise out the centre part using the point of a Stanley blade but still no joy. Gave up in the end.
Will be interested in a successful reply.
David.

Since my reply I see you have posted a picture. That’s the type I was referring to, however, on mine the centre piece protrudes up from the flat bit (rim). Your centre piece is pushed in more, which would make it even harder to remove.
David.
Ps. I notice you are in Spalding also! We are located near to Rugby Club.

@dalspa the only way I can see is to drill a small hole and put in a screw and pull it out giving access to the screw inside Holbeach in reply to location.

A long shot.......
The screw head may have a threaded hole and the cap screws into it.
Usually the cap is domed, chrome and secures mirrors to walls but the principle is the same.
Lay a rubber band over the cap, press down and turn anti clockwise.
Nowt to lose but a minute of your time.

Hmmm , now the photo's appear to show the rivet type fastener , which i have fitted to my small van . I've found the best way to release them is to push the centre in until the outer ring become's loose then lift them up as one . Sometime's you may find the centre pin will push though , before the ring become's loose , i'm afraid this will often mean loosing the pin . Replacement's are available on ebay . There is no screw under the cover the centre pin fully in place does that job .

I don’t think there is a screw beneath it from memory they are a plastic peg type that’s push fits as the spigot is sort of sprung all I know is they are very hard to get out.

Afraid they are a one shot device but easy to obtain from motor factor or eBay search "wheel arch rivits" or "Trim panel rivets".

That surprised me, if you can't get replacements easy (Hymer dealer should have then if you can afford it) you could fill and paint any you wrecked getting them out.
