Yes the O/S wheel will have been removed. Are you having issues now?

Hi thanks for the reply, just noticed I put fuel pump that's wrong it was belts kit and water pump, :) but yes in having a massive prob , I had the belt changed as I thought it was about time at 125000 mls and we were meant to be driving through France today , however one of fords recommendations was to change front tyres , so I went to a tyre shop and they have informed me that four of the five nuts have been cross threaded knackering the nuts and hub bolts :( they managed to get the wheel back on all be it on 4 nuts , but I just wanted to double check that they would have taken wheel off , before I start shouting in fords !

4 out of 5 cross threaded wheel nuts, how on earth.. That's absolutely incredible! Have they been cross threaded of overtightened and stripped?

I would be very careful with that, the last thing you want is a catastrophic failure..

I would be phoning at the earliest convenient time, and I would be asking that they have someone else check over the work that was carried out - you clearly can't trust the monkey who put the wheel on!

Very good point stef123 , I will get them to check over the work . I know the whole proses has been a nightmare they snapped the cam sensor bolt and charged me to replace the thing 80 pounds . They really are quite the joke . And thanks for confirming my initial thoughts , as the n/s studs are fine and I watched the tyre guy take the wheels off . !Removed! hendy fords ....never again
