Wheel Security Key/Nut


Recommended Posts

Alright Peeps

 

I have just had Kwik Fit Mobile fitter out to put two new tyres on the front of the car.  However he has advised me that he can't do it due to the Wheel Security nut being damaged, completely sheered and that I need to contact Ford..   I have just phone several numbers for Ford and been passed around, tried parts like they don't do it, tried servicing and they don't do it anymore, now I need to contact another company called Mcguard

I need to know if there is a way that I can remove those nuts/bolts and get a complete brand new set than just the security key itself.  Maybe that will be cost effective.

Is it cheaper just to get the security key part replaced or somehow remove those bolts and then replace the whole lot???

The wheel nut security key is the part that is damaged.. Not the actual nuts/bolt on the car..

You can buy a new key from McGard but it's not cheap and takes days to arrive.

Just go to your local garage and they'll remove the locking wheel nuts for you by either using their set of keys, or a more "forceful" method.

Once they're off throw them in the bin and fit standard Ford nuts. alloys are pretty worthless nowadays unless they're really special so they don't get stolen.

I ordered a new set of 4 wheel nuts to replace the locking ones on my car yesterday as Ford ones are quite soft and tend to either break on the nut or the locking key,

I don't think the locking nuts are of any use these days as if someone wants the wheels they'll just hammer a socket on to remove them or take the car
