    Hello all

    just got off the phone to my rents who are currently using my car for the odd errand whilst im away back in 4 weeks! they phoned asking where the locking nut is as the tyres need changing. i thought the locking nut was in the boot, but apparently not!! is there any other way around this? with doing minimal damage, alloys are only the standard sport ones so nothing special to me!

    thanks :wacko:

    Any decent tyre place or garage should be able to remove them.

    It may also be worth trying the local dealer if they have the std locks as I seem to recall that there is only a limited combination of lock keys and they may be able to look up what yours has.

    Worth a ring to a steeler.

    Yeah I had an issue with the poxy lock bolt head had sheared so I smacked a new 17mm socket onto it with a meaty hammer & then used the wrench to remove, someone must have used a gun on it, idiots, but alls well that ended well & pocket little lighter, but got the bastard of anyway.

    Depends on type of locking nut - the ones that spin are fun to get off!

    I take it that it hasnt just fallen under the spare wheel?
