Hi Folks, A question for you S3 owners out there!
A friend of mine is running a 2000 model S3 and has somehow managed to allow the two front locking wheel nuts to seize onto the hubs. God knows when she last took the wheels off but its not looking good. The locking wheel nut key is as good as scrap and the car has been into a decent tyre place and even they scrapped about £60 of their kit trying to get the nuts off. They tried the basic one of banging on a compact socket over the locking wheel nut and they split 2 in the process then the specialist kit was used with no joy.
Anyone got any other ideas? The Tyre place said that she may have to get both front driveshafts etc unbolted and then taken to a specialist to get then drilled out!! Sounds expensive............
She lives in Kingswinford in the West Mids so if anyone can recommend anywhere 'local' to do the job or offer an alternative please drop us a line, cheers..........:keule:
