LOCKING WHEEL NUTS

NOTES

Not all vehicles have locking wheel nuts as standard parts.

CAUTION

The locking wheel nut adaptor must be correctly aligned and fully fitted to the locking wheel nut before usage. Incorrect fitment can result in permanent damage to the locking wheel nut adaptor. If in doubt, contact a retailer/authorised repairer.

CAUTION

Do not use air tools or power tools to remove or to refit the locking wheel nuts. Doing so may damage the locking wheel nuts or the locking wheel nut adaptor.

The locking wheel nuts are dependent on the vehicle’s specification:

  1. Vehicles with alloy wheels.

  2. Vehicles with steel wheels.

Locking wheel nuts can be removed and fitted using only the special adaptor provided. See TOOL KIT.

To release the locking wheel nuts:

  1. Fit the locking wheel nut adaptor onto the locking wheel nut. Make sure that the locking wheel nut adaptor fully engages.

    CAUTION

    If the locking wheel nut adaptor is forced onto the locking wheel nut, the adaptor may be damaged beyond repair.

  2. Locate the wheel brace over the locking wheel nut adaptor. Unscrew the wheel nut half a turn counter-clockwise.

  3. After raising the vehicle on the jack, remove the locking wheel nut.

NOTES

When the vehicle is first supplied, the wheel nut adaptor may be stored in the glovebox. If this is the case, the wheel nut adaptor must be moved to its correct storage position in the loadspace, as soon as possible. See TOOL KIT.

NOTES

Should a replacement locking wheel nut adaptor be required, consult an authorised retailer. It is advised to make a note of the locking wheel nut adaptor code number to allow a replacement to be sourced, if ever required. Depending upon the specification of the locking wheel nut adaptor, the code may be stamped on the locking wheel nut adaptor or supplied on a separate card.
