Plastic Spare wheel cover removal

Post by izakjbrt » 22 Apr 2018 14:47

Afternoon

Does anyone know how to remove the plastic spare wheel "shell"? Not just the cover to remove the spare, but the back side also? Want to rather put on a canvas spare wheel cover as the plastic one rattles to much, and the canvas just looks..."better"
