    I went to take the wheels off my car at the weekend to paint the callipers and give the wheels a proper clean. Went into the boot, and rather worryingly, I don't have most of the tools needed! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I think I am missing the wrench (forgotten what it's called!) and the attachment for one of the bolts. Does anyone know anywhere where I can get these from? also, can someone give me a list of what is supposed to be there!?

    Thanks,

    Rob.

    You should have:

    <ul type="square"> [*]Wheel wrench [*]cap puller [*]jack [*]spanner [*]lock nut [*]centering pin thingy [*]some other metal ring/clip or whatever it is [/list]

    Think that is it.

    You missed the philips/slotted screwdriver.

    The metal clip thing is for removal of the wheel cap...if you have them.

    The plastic bag is to put the 'dirty' wheel that you have just removed into so that it does not get the boot or inside of the car dirty. Particularly relevent if you have a space-saver spare because the wheel well will not accommodate a full size wheel.
