Alloy Wheel Nut / Cover Loose

Recommended Posts

Just had our Fiesta serviced by Ford and they've advised that all the wheel bolts need replacing at a cost of £100!! Which I'm not too happy about :angry:

Whats the verdict on the ebay wheel bolts for £18 ? Gone rusty ? Corroded ? Any problems ?

Says the bolts are for the Focus! Are Fiesta wheel nuts the same as Focus wheel nuts ?

Cheers. Ian.

I super glued the one loose one we had on the SportKA and its been holding OK for the last two years.

I hope you never have to take that wheel off.

Same ones I bought off eBay. They're zinc plated so will last a while but eventually I'm expecting them to discolour due to the roadsalt. Once and if mine do I'm just going to give them a light coat of spray paint if I can be bothered. They fit good and are better than the originals in my opinion. I also bought an 'alloy wheelnut socket' with a plastic sleeve around the outside so you don't damage the alloy wheel when fitting them.

Thanks for the replying. I take it those bolts was for a Focus ? I've no idea if Fiesta & Focus bolts are the same!!

Yep mine were for a focus but fiesta ones are similar, just the nut and the locating 'taper' for the fiesta are solid. (The focus has a separate tapered washer that is located around the bottom of the nut)

Thanks for replying Russ, I'll take a photo of one of my bolts and message the seller to see what he says, don't want to be buying the wrong type.

Finally got the replacement new bolts and changed the OE bolts!  Utterly shocked how bad five of the covers was extremely loose to the point of them coming off :w00t:

If any of you guys out there has the early Fiesta with the bolts with the covers fitted I urge you to check them ASAP.

I need some of these,  half have mine have either fell off or not been put back on when it's been in for repair and the others that are left are very loose you when you touch them.

I'm just gonna get some plastic ones like above. @yunii  are they 17MM or the 19MM ones?

17MM

19MM

I've got a 2010 Fiesta Titinium btw, thanks
