How do I remove the wheel. One of the nuts is a different shape.

Recommended Posts

I have found a nail in the tyre.and I'm trying to remove the wheel to repair it. I have loosened 3 of the nuts but have found that one is round and the spare wheel wrench is too small. How do I remove it?

There isnt any obvious tool to remove it. I have attached a picture as well.

I'd really appreciate the help.

Hi pal. That's your locking g wheel nut. The round bit is a cover. Just pull it off and hope you have the wheel nut key somewhere.

That's not a cover, that is the newer style locking nut.
Instead of the previous style where the removal nut matched a pattern on the face of the nut, now the removal nut matches those notches on the outer ring.
You should have a removal nut in the glovebox or with the spare wheel in the boot.
If you haven't, look for a small card which will have the nut code for obtaining a new one (not cheap).
