    Evening All,

    well This afternoon / Evening I have fitted 3 out f 4 spacers. The wheel nuts and locking nut were installed by He-Man! I had to use a rubber mallet to free some of them up!

    I re placed them with the new wheel nuts and set them to 120Nm and will re set after 50 miles.

    BUT

    The last wheel (front driver side) the locking nut will not budge! I looked at my locking nut and I may have / or previous user may have canned it. not sure if the condition of the locking nut is the problem or my Stephen Hawkins arms.

    Any ideas, I will just take it to the local garage / tyre place and get them to remove the locking nut then come home and finish it.

    You may have to get a new key Dan, but I don't know if it's cheaper to buy a new set than it is just the key. For if/when you take them off.

    Fingers crossed for you pal
