    Hey guys and gals!
    I suck at parking and hit a curb, how would I fix this or what should I google / youtube on how to fix it?
    Seems like I can't just snap it back in - looks like I have to unscrew something.

    Thanks :)

    Instructions on remove/install in the attachment. Maybe you can get away with just pulling off that corner, or complete removal? To see what's happening.

    How long have you not had centre caps on the rims? They really help seal out moisture/salt. Getting pretty rusty? The next time the wheels are off I would wire brush off what you can, and put something on. Boiled linseed oil is good. Or some sort of oil.
