In Topic: Removing Mk2 Focus Locking Wheel Nut Advice

29 June 2015 - 12:19 PM

Just thought I'd let you guys know how I got on.  My regular garage removed all 4 for me, fitted me a new tyre all for £65 so I can't be unhappy with that.  They used the plasma cutter to get the collars off, my wheel nuts are hidden behind the wheel cover so I told them beforehand to use whatever was the quickest method for them. (saves me a bit of labour)

 

I've just fitted normal nuts to replace the locking ones.

 

Now to treat her to a new satin silver gear knob (thank you MK4 mondeo) & 4 new wheel covers (been meaning to swap them for a while but the £17 each cost on ebay kepy putting me off).

If you go to a Ford dealers they should have a master set in their service centre (should unless they have lost/nacked their own sets).

If I go to Ford directly I might as well bend over now in preparation for getting rodgered!

I had this issue and I took it to a tyre local garage and they removed it and put the ones I brought with me for £12 they have a specialist tool to remove any locking nut though much better than forcing a socket on it which I was tempted to do too.

Can you remember if your locking nuts had the collar on them like mine or were they the collarless type which feature on all the youtube vids?

If you have the code for the key mcgaurd will send a replacement for about £18 delivered from Germany the old ones do break mine did

Although the car came with the service booklet etc & the code for the radio, unfortunately (for me) it didn't come with the locking nut code
