Question about 2005 Ford Ranger
Sounds like you are talking about the bearing grease/dust cap on the hub. There are special pliers made to remove them but if a pair of cap pliers is not available to you you can use a sharpened flathead screwdriver or a flat chisel and a hammer to pop them free. You will notice a small lip on the cap where it meets the rotor. You will need to place the edge of the chisel there and GENTLY tap it to wedge it out from the rotor. Slowly tap the chisel in the gap and pry the cap out. Work your way around the cap prying it out evenly and be careful not to distort the cap. When you replace the cap you can just tap it back into place with a hammer. Again tap gently as not to distort the cap's shape. No sealant or anything is needed.
