    Normally the hole where the QR goes has 5 mm Allen key fittigs to undo the hub. If not (depends on the model), once you have undone both the tiny allen bolts, simply pull and the cap should come off

    I've checked that as my rear one came off that way but the hole is completely smooth and when I undo the Allen keys the caps don't budge.

    They need a bit of a pull... Maybe put them in a vice and pull the wheel up. Inevitably the grease gets washed out and stuff starts to corrode....
