ive never done this before and need to know how. I turned the key on the lock 90 degrees on both locks but they still wont budge...

are they the locking wire hubcaps? if so you have to keep turning until they release. it's basically a nut with a different shaped head that the key fits.

If it's a different kind...I can't help you :(

That sounds like your doing it correctly, my 80 cdv only requires a 90 degree turn to the left,
(counter clockwise.)

I don't have the key to my 78 hubcaps but it looks like they would need to turn more than 90 degrees, more like 180.

I experimented awhile back and released the lock just by using a screw driver, there was also a picture of the hasps, maybe try "search",it was just a few months ago.

I just tried my key on my 80 cdv., I think your right, it looked more like a 135-140 degree turn, but not a full 180.
