    Locking Wheel Nut Seized

    Thanks for the replies.The aa failed with a special dynomec tool so I managed to find a guy on the internet who has the same tool and managed to do it in ten minutes. I now have no locking wheel nuts as they're not worth the hassle.

    Locking Wheel Nut Seized

    Problem is they've got a rotating collar on the nut so how will it work by hammering on a socket. Rattle gun hasn't worked nor has an expensive removal tool the aa uses.

    Locking Wheel Nut Seized

    I've put lots of wd40 on it over the last week. Took my car to Ford today to see if they could get it off and it wouldn't shift. They've told me to book it in and they'll try with an air gun and if that doesn't move it then they'll have to hammer it off. I'm hoping the air gun will work as will save me a fortune in Labour. As you've suggested air gun as well hopefully that'll do the trick.

    Locking Wheel Nut Seized

    Hi all, I wonder if anyone can help me. One of my locking wheel nuts is totally seized on and it's impossible to undo. Has anyone got any ideas how I could possibly get it off as I need to replace my tyres. It's a fiesta metal by the way.

    Fiesta St Reviews Are In!

    There's a review in Top Gear magazine saying your betting off getting the 1.0 ecoboost as the mpg difference is minimal and its a nicer engine and car to drive. Im thinking about an ST, ive already had an insurance quote and its only an extra £80 and mpg is the same as metal I have now as is the road tax.

    Fuel Leaking When Filling Up!!

    And you need to rest the nozzle on the bottom of the filler hole and not hold it upwards as it keeps clicking off. Stop at first click also as otherwise it leaks out.

    What Fuel Do You Use?

    Ive always used shell. Its only an extra penny per litre and at least I know what im getting. Who knows what the supermarkets mix it with, horse pee maybe?

    New Mats

    I got mine from they're made to fit and you can choose colours and different thicknesses of carpet. They fit perfectly and are really durable, i went for the thickest carpet they have and love them.

    New Tax Disc Holder

    I ripped my dealer sticker and dealer tax disc holder off while I was at the dealer picking my car up so they don't have time to weld themselves to my windows. He didn't look too impressed lol.

    Ford Fiesta Zetec S Or Metal??

    Metal all the way but I am biased. Drives great and sounds nice. Feels like a more upmarket car and you'll easily get 40mpg even with lots of spirited driving which you won't be able to resist doing. You won't regret getting one.
