  • Driving me nuts!

    My Locking wheel nuts that is. Today sunny, bit cold but dry thought i would take off all my wheels and give them a good clean wax etc in prep for winter. However, upon trying to get the wheels off no matter how hard i try i could not get the locking wheel nuts off! the locking cap just doesnt seem tight enough it simply spins when you apply force to the wrench? and as luck would have it on a saturday after 12 the garage is closed typical. are the wheel nuts we get with the car just cheap crap?
    any suggestions?

    Thay may well have been done up with air gun get it back give the dealer the problem, if thay damage a wheel thay will have to replace it, try a small amount of copper crest anti seaze on the threads when you get it back.
