E39 Tire Problem

Guyz,

I am new to this forum so pls. bare with me..As I am going to learn a lot.

I got 1999 BMW 528i. One of the troubles is, wiper liquid is draining through the right side somewhere behind the right front tire. I am trying to take out the wheel but couldn't. The lugs are hidden behind the lug cover that has BMW logo on it. I tried to turn it with hands and couldn't do it.

Can anybody suggest how to take it away and then I can loosen the screws please?

Thanks for reply..

Welcome to the werkz. Im very interested in finding this out myself as I am encountering the exact same issue, except its on the driver's side. First off what style wheels do you have. The non-sport style 29's, sport style 5's ? Second off, If you cant identify the wheel, just take a screw driver and pry it off gently, where the arrow on the center cap aligns with the rest of the wheel.

I spend at least 2 hours a day cleaning my car
