How do you take off wheel caps ???

Iam trying to touch up my rims but I cant get the center wheel caps off...they are 16inch stock honda rims off a accord 03 4cyl !
dont they just come off ? cant seem to get them off ? I dont wanna scratch them? do they unscrew ?
it says in manual not to
" Do not attemp to forcibly pry the plewheel cover off with a screwdriver or other tool. The wheel cover cannot be removed without first removing the wheel nuts."

Jack up the car, remove the lugs from one wheel, watch what happens.

Sounds like the center wheel caps from the first sentence. If that's the case, then you need to remove the wheel. And yes, that requires removing the lug/wheel nuts first.

Once the wheel is off, you can pop it out by pushing it from behind.
