How to remove an alloy cover on a Corsa
Some Vauxhall Corsas come with alloy wheel covers. (Image by Jamie McAll; Flickr.)

The alloy wheels on a Vauxhall Corsa come with a cover in the centre, hiding the wheel nuts that secure the wheel to the car. This protects the alloy bolts from damage and also acts as a deterrent to would-be thieves. The cover needs to be removed to access the bolts and take off the wheel. This is done by using a screwdriver or a special key which are included as part of the vehicle tool kit.

  1. 1

    Open your vehicle tool kit, which is stored in a compartment beneath the spare wheel, in the boot luggage compartment. Select the screwdriver. If you are removing a hub cab with an anti-theft lock then select the special key included.

  2. 2

    Position the screwdriver in the recess at the edge of the alloy hub cover. Prise off the cover.

  3. 3

    Insert the key into the three-holed slot on the anti-theft hub cap. Twist the key in an anti-clockwise direction to pop off the alloy cover. Don't apply too much force as this can break the key. If the cover is jammed or stuck on, take it to a Vauxhall dealer to have the cover removed.
