I had to change 9 of mine as I could not get a socket on them so had to hammer them to remove ,
It's like Chrome covers were twisted!

Yep, it happens. Replaced all twenty of mine last year on a just-in-case basis, as a few were starting to get difficult. 2010 model year FL2 TD4e GS - now at 100,000 miles, 26,000 of them mine.

I think I am right in saying that the wheel nut covers will be damaged if you use any thing other than a full sized 6 sided socket. FL2 XS SD4 Auto 2010 2012-2017 (21k - 91k miles)
FL2 Metropolis SD4 Auto 2014 2017- (16k - 34k+ miles)

yep had to replace mine too, not cheap but apparently they rust under the cover and swell up making it impossible to get a socket on without a lot of brute force!
