Locking Wheel Nut Help Pls!

21 August 2014 - 07:38 PM

So the spanner monkey i had my last set of tyres from massively overtightened my wheel nuts, So much that i broke my socket/key trying to take the wheel off iv got a replacement key removed the locking nuts from the other three wheels but still cant get the last one off they were so tight i struggled cracking the other nuts on the same wheel with a 24" breaker bar.

Ive tried hammering a socket over after chiselling off the spinning collar that didnt work and also the threaded removal socket tool doesnt work either oh and smashing it with a lump hammer to shock it any better ideas out there Help!

Considering Changing Careers Any Truck Drivers About?

05 August 2014 - 11:16 PM

After successfully pottering through life with pretty low gcse's (Best was a C in maths) and no college or university qualifications and a hand full of city and guilds qualifications, I'm thinking about training for my C+E licence can anyone on here offer any advice on how to go about it?


Im employed currently and earn an ok wage but what can i expect to earn and what sort of hours and is it true that without 2 years experience its going to be difficult?

Anyone Removed The Resonator From Airbox Feed?

08 July 2014 - 07:46 PM

Just had a little play with my car I already have a K&N panel filter which makes no difference in noise or performance if im honest, But behind the front grill theres a huge v shaped resonator with an open end the other side of the grill I removed the screws/plugs from the grill and surround enough to get access to the resonator and gently pulled up and off it popped from two rubber grommets put it all back together and theres a fair bit of induction roar now :)


Dont know if its been done before but thought id share and its a free mod than anyone with a screwdriver can do, Mines a mk2.5 dont know if the other mk's are the same though

Think Ive Had A Speeding Fine Refunded

25 June 2014 - 02:50 PM

Hi guys opened a letter this morning from HM Ministry of justice with a cheque/remitance for £100 no explanation on it but the reference number matches a speeding fine from last november.

Got caught by a copper in a layby doing 37 in a 30 got issued the ticket and producer paid the fine and ordered new licence as i had lost mine, I completely forgot to send in the licence and only now realised but its never been asked for.

Why have i had a remitance/cheque has someone not filled a form in correctly or am i waiting for a new one in the post :mellow:
