are the wheels like this?

if so, your going to have to get an allen key that fits and unscrew the cover plate off, which should expose the lug nuts (i cant really see the hole but im taking a guess that its for an allen key, but it may be some other type of "screw")...check the trunk/jack area for some tool, there should be something there to get the cover plate off


Good Luck

we usually order a few sets from ECStuning.com, all the service kit, like the oil filters, drain plug washer, you buy like a dozen and put in your garage.

I know you've already figured it out but in case someone else needs a better description...

There is a small hole in the center cap...in your trunk, where you have all your bolt removers and maintenance parts, there will be a small, clip like device with a loop at the end as a handle. Put that piece into the hole of the cap and pull.

If you don't have that clip in the tool box where your spare tire is, then use a paper clip.

There is a the hole you are looking for.

As for windshield wipers...I would get them from Lordco. It's an 04" so they're not specialized wipers and Lordco has tons of selection.
