Default 2010 Fiesta Wheel nut Caps

I have just aquired this Fiesta off my daughter and some of the caps on the wheel nuts are missing and I need some advice for replacement and the best place to get them. I believe if I wanted to replace the whole wheel nut with a chrome version I would have to mortgage the house.
Thanks

Look for a quality set of after market ones on eBay. Did this for my focus. The OEM ones are rubbish.

Supercheap, about $64 for a full set in chrome.
( if this is your mortgage payment, I'm jealous LOL)
You are right the OEM with the stupid caps are rubbish

Can someone please tell me how to remove these caps. I've tried multi grips ,pliers and vice grips with no luck.there must be a trick to it before the angle grinder comes out.
Thanks

I'm pretty sure the factory wheel brace fits the nuts with the covers on the nuts. If the cover is removed you have to get different sized socket.

Fister Experts - please let me know if I'm in error.

I replaced mine because the covers were just stupid.

Thanks for the replies, I got hold of a socket set and that worked, I'm replacing with normal type wheel nuts. It's my wife's car and I don't want her stranded trying to change a wheel.
