Removing Ford Mercury hubcaps is a fairly easy task that can be accomplished in a matter of minutes. You can also do the job anywhere, whether in a garage, in front of your house, in a parking lot or in front of the store where you just purchased your new hubcaps. There is a specialized hubcap removal tool. Unless you plan to remove a lot of hubcaps, however, there really is no need for it. A screwdriver should suffice.

Step 1

Slide the tool or screwdriver between the edge of the hubcap and wheel.

Step 2

Push upwards to loosen the hubcap from the wheel.

Step 3

Move the tool or screwdriver along the edge of the hubcap to free other points from the wheel.

Step 4

Insert a second screwdriver between the hubcap's edge and the wheel, then pry the hubcap.

Step 5

Move both screwdrivers to different points around the hubcap and keep prying. Eventually it will come off.
