How do you remove the wheel covers from Buick Rendezvous?

You first need to loosen the plastic lug nut covers until they are no longer attached to the wheels lug nuts under the cover. After all five plastic lug nut covers are loosened completely from the lug nuts, you can gently pop the cover from the wheel. If the plastic lug nut covers have been damaged so they are not removable, you will need to get some needle nose pliers and basically break off the plastic lug nut covers. (The plastic lug nut covers keep the wheel cover attached to the wheel. The plastic lug nut covers snap into the wheel cover.) And then the game is on----finding replacement plastic lug nut covers and/or wheel covers......speaking from experience!!!
