Locking Wheel Nut Question

Hi Guys,

Just a quick one when you bought the car where was the locking wheel nut stored? I've checked the glove box but it isn't here and the sales man never mentioned it. I keep forgetting but I really should find where it is.

Thanks for any help :)

Should be in one of the tool wrap pockets, inside the boot/trunk with the jack and spear wheel.

In a Sportback it's behind the RHS side trim access panel in the boot in the tool roll.

Hi,

The ones at the side of the rear lights or actually with the spare wheel? I've checked with the spare wheel and nothing is there :(

When I purchased my car the tool wrap was in the spare wheel well but yours might be in the little storage / fuel flap release access compartment.

I'm definitely going to check that little compartment tonight. Last time I tried to open the compartment I wasn't sure if to turn or just pull to open? I didn't want to apply any force.

Mine was in the tool roll in the spare wheel under the boot floor.
I now keep the wheel nut adapter under the arm rest.

In the Saloon, the tool wrap is in the wheel well and I missed it the first time I looked

It's right at the 'front' of the boot (back of the car by the bumper) and it is somewhat hidden under the piece of foam that runs parallel with the bumper. This piece of foam is separate to the rest and easily lifts up to let you get at the jack and tool kit :)
