Focus MK2 1.6 TDCi Titanium Replacement Wheel Nuts


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a standard Focus MK2 1.6 TDCi Titanium and am getting fed up with replacing the wheel nuts everything time I remove the wheels.

The nuts are standard with the thin outer casing that keeps popping off ever time I attach the socket (http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/FEBI-29463-Wheel-Nut-Front-Axle-left-or-right-Rear-Axle-left-or-right-/291705832091?txnId=1286027270019).

Can anybody suggest an alternative where I won't have this problem i.e. The outer casing won't come loose / fall off or crumple when torque is applied?

Many thanks,

Stophen.

They only fall off when they get old, they're tight to start with, over a year ago I replaced about 6 of mine with brand new Ford ones (a mate works at Ford and had them spare) and I haven't had any of the new ones come loose yet...

Hi,
I had the same trouble with stock 19mm ford nuts there cheese coated in a thin foil layer of aluminium, 
 
When the thin layer slides off they become 18mm nuts which warp the stock wheel brace, 
 
In some cases the thin layer warps round the nut resulting in a screwdriver and hammer job to remove from the nut.
 
This all happened to me in the past, 
The nuts are M12x1.5 
Here's the kit I purchased solid one piece nuts no cheese 
 
 
Also see thread here where images displayed

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me.

The wheel nuts look good although they don't seem to be compatible with my model (according to eBay). Any suggestions?

Cheers, Stophen.
