#426338 Locking Wheel Nut.

Posted by karlos1987 on 07 November 2014 - 07:16 PM

I tried the aa mate. They didn't have much luck. Alls they told me is what is posted above about being over torqued. Hopefully you have better luck than I did with them.

I even went to ford and asked a mechanic if he would do it for £20 drinking money but I would of had a better conversation with a brick wall. Lol.


#426307 Locking Wheel Nut.

I went for this set as the key sits around the nut rather than in it.

I would suggest getting locking nuts as st alloys are very sought after with thieves.

From behind I like it. But side view I think it spoils the look.

My 1.6 focus gets about 27/28 mpg. And it's used daily in town driving conditions.

Try resetting it when you next fill up and go from there.

#417452 Are Less People Working On Their Own Cars?

Posted by karlos1987 on 08 October 2014 - 01:41 PM

I do as much as possible on my car.

I hate paying garages. Will only do so if I really have no other option.

I tend to think if I can get it off I can.get it back on so I can replace it.

I brought a Haynes manual for my focus and even though it hurt me paying £20 for a book. I've more than saved my money.

Infact it's earned me money by doing bits for other people.

On a second thought I'll just sit and wait. Don't fancy driving a corsa. Could prob get further if I ran.
